“What a Surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

I recently moved to the area from Manhattan and discovered PURE By accident. THis place is amazing....cool design, great staff and great food. THey have a huge wine selection and fantastic sushi chefs (Sushi Bar open until midnight).
I have been to PUre both for HAppy Hour..which is a great crowd and to see the late evening influx of sexy women:) They also have DJ playing on Friday and Saturdays. The crowd is grown and sexy with a nice mix of local business professionals, doctors etc.
This seems to be a great place to network and meet people from the area.
I will definitely be returning soon.

“Comfortable, gracious dining.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I have been to this restaurant on several occasions. For lunch and for dinner.
The ambience is very nice --especially when it is warm and the paneled doors are open.
There are nice little nooks at which to be seated and the decor is very pleasant.

The food is quite good -- mostly Asian fusion.
The portions are average and the prices are a little high for lunch and high for dinner.
Service is good. Whether for a family meal, a business luncheon or a "let's grab lunch with a friend...go...you won't be disappointed...except maybe with the bill.

“Good option for a business lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

I went there for lunch with colleagues. Very nice fusion decor. We loved the atmosphere and the restaraunt was quite empty in the begining, so we went over all our business questions before tables started to fill.
Soup was very good and sushi/sashimi outstanding. If you into rolls, highly advice to order volcano. Inspite the extravagant name, the presentation and taste were very good.

“Quirky but interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012 via mobile

Dropped in here for lunch. Decor looks to be a Japanese-Thai-European eclectic fusion, and the menu matches. A bit pricey for what you get. Upon arrival, it appeared there was no one in the place but us, but a few other groups drifted in ( we arrived at 12:15). Food was good; we had the soup of the day, a coconut milk ginger seafood bisque (very good) and the crab wonton taco salad ( also very good, although it does sound strange). Service was very good, but honestly if there were 5 tables of people there, I'd be surprised. We did not have any groupon coupon; perhaps that would make this a more reasonable dining option.
