We selected this restaurant based on the following: other reviews, location, menu and time. From the moment we walked in our experience exceeded our expectations. The greeter quickly found our reservation - even though we were early, she gave us two options - be seated immediately or go tot he bar and check out the happy hour. We opted for the bar. Mike, the bartender, was very friendly, open to suggesting (we asked) and mixed our drinks. We ordered two happy hour food items - wonderful flavors and tastes sensations.
We then moved to dinner (nice touch - Mike said he could transfer our tab to the dining area). We ordered several combination rolls, two different saki samplers, and a yummy flowerless chocolate with green tea ice cream. Several times during the dining experience Vincent, the manager, stopped by to check on us.
Is this restaurant in our back year? No - we took BART on a 45 minute ride to get there. Will be go back? Absolutely!
