It was fun watching all the new college kids in training to be wait staff. The service was great. The sushi rolls, however, were not great. There is a good selection of rolls, especially if you like tempura fried ingredients. However our fish seemed watery and bland. It was convenient to the hotel and we were tired.

A great meal experience. Chef Eric was OUTSTANDING, very enjoyable to watch prepare the food right in front of you. Also very helpful while he was preparing the food in providing useful information on the area. Food quality was excellent and prepared exactly as everyone wanted. Great experience overall.
