The sushi at this place was very good - maybe not the best I have ever had, but among the top 2-3. The pan seared edamame was also very good. Some people have complained about the service, but in our case it was fine -...More

We had a Sunday long lunch....I wish it was longer. Fantastic food, wines, atmosphere and staff. They went out of their way to help our expecting daughter with the menu. No negatives.....we will be back...soon I hope.
