First off, the decor and atmosphere are very welcoming and enjoyable. We had a reservation, and our table was ready when we arrived. The place was very crowded so I recommend reservations.
Service was helpful and thorough although one person had their dinner sent 10 minutes ahead of the rest (party of 6). Seems the sushi chef's do not communicate with the kitchen and coordinate.
The menu presented some nice options, although I was disappointed that there was not a sushi or sashimi appetizer or dinner available. Sashimi and nigiri has to be ordered a la carte, and I found the prices to be a bit extravagant.
There is one way to get sashimi or nigiri, but you must order a $35 option where the chef picks your food, and it seems like way too much food. Why am I forced to order a chef special roll if I want to try some sashimi at a respectable price?
But, considering how crowded the place was, they have found their niche and should do well. Improved communication with the chefs and a tweak to the menu will make this a 5 star.
