“laughably over priced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2011

The food was good not exceptional, the floor to ceiling windows made for a dramatic view but otherwise a cold feeling space, the service was OK, though the staff all on ear pieces gave it an inpersonal touch,
The three of us ended up with a bill of $450 that included one medium priced bottle of white wine and one small ceramic bottle of sake, two had main course servings, and one only had an appetizer. They did offer desert for the two main course customers which was a choice between vanilla or chocolate Haagan Das ice cream. In a high end Japanese restaurant we thought they were joking .
Do not bother unless you are on expense account entertaining Japanese clients, not worth it!
