“Hard to find. Nice roof terrace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Once you've found it a great place for dinner, especially if you can get a table at the roof terrace.

“You can order anything your heart desires”

Quite an eclectic reaturant.Mexican, Italian, Chinese and some other nationalities.
Food is very good and so is the service.

“Outrageous prices and faux chinese-turkish mirrored smokey atmosphere”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

We were excited to try this place after reading the reviews. But 'classic rustic Italian' it is not (that was a joke right?) It is more like upscale brothel meets yuppy Chinese... maybe it was the mirrored columns, or the fish-net stocking starlight singer, or the big booth'ed private rooms, or the drapes covering the windows (which otherwise would have had a decent view), or the fact that half the couples were on their cell phones. When we opened the menus we were a bit shocked at the prices... 45Y for a very simple Chinese dish, 80Y minimum for a small 9" pizza, 25Y for the very cheapest beer... far above average, why not go over to Lost Garden just a block away and have amazing western food for half the price and a fresh atmosphere.
Sorry Blue Bird, we wanted to like you, but we'll leave you to the urban yuppies that have money to burn while gabbing away on your cell phones, smoking, feeling blaze. The only reason I give this two stars instead of just one is because our small Mushroom pizza was good, just not worth the money by our standards.
