This is an interesting restaurant with a young urban and well defined vibe. My husband and I decided to check them out for the first time, inquiring about reservations the day before. They did not have our desired times but that was expected. We decided to wing it and wait for a bar/seating area. Overall, great place and we will return.
Very busy! The bar, table seating, outdoor patio, were all going and all at once. Its nice to see a busy establishment, it is not so nice when you see patrons and employees stressed over the matter. This was not the case here. Employees were upbeat and a system appeared to be in place to handle to customer count. We stood by the bar enjoying the strongest sake combination (no liquor) the bar tender could whip up and waited for a place to sit.
Service: I can sum it up by stating great. The hostess managed to remember us through the crowd and offered updates. A young lady was passing out samples to either everyone or in an effort to keep those waiting content (I believe it was a 2 hour wait...) no complaints here. Service spot on!
Atmosphere: Definitely a younger crowd, perhaps mostly 25-35. Business casual and urban trendy dress was prominent, A weekend night would be a great date place for an energetic couple or small group of friends. Diverse enough for anyone to visit and enjoy themselves.
Food: Very good, once ordered very quick, and once consumed you'd like more! No, we sampled a few different items and they were all good. Presentation was fun and we almost wanted to turn a simple husband/wife date night into a half day excursion. Great place.
