My friends and I decided have lunch here because of the view to the water. The view was great and the food was great. It is a little pricy but we had a good time so it was worth it. Try the bambootini because it is good!

This sushi-centric restaurant is on the pier attached to Caesar's and has windows overlooking the beach and boardwalk. We usually come for Happy Hour either early or the late night 9 pm one and always sit at the bar and enjoy the spectacular view and sunsets. The sushi is always fresh and well made and the small plates and tempura... More

Went for dinner with friends on Saturday night. It was surprisingly not packed as other restaurants. We got a bottle of sake and our group got foods ranging from sushi to fish to chicken and salmon. The sushi was great and gyoza was delicious too! If you are looking for a quick eat with great happy hour prices, check it... More

We loved this place so much, we've eaten there three times. The service is a bit slow, and the prices are expensive.

The quality of the food is great. Soft Shell crab was delicious. Some of the rolls were more American than Asian. Too much mayo! The Place is nicely located inside the pier shopping center, and the staff was very attentive.

Been here a few times and every time I'm left underwhelmed. The Gyoza is good, the rolls are decent. Tbh, the last time I was there, they were practically falling apart. Wish they had a bigger selection of specialty rolls with interesting flavor combinations. Atmosphere is cool being that it's in the Pier overlooking the ocean. If you're a sushi... More

My husband and I had dinner here with our two children, ages 3 and 6. We beat the crowds from the concert that day with an early dinner sometime after six (we missed happy hour specials which were very good). I would say the price is comparable to a mid range New York restaurant. The sushi was very fresh. The... More

A friend of mine and I had lunch here recently. First we arrived to find that they were not open at 11:30 even though it said so online. We walked around a bit and then came back to find the hostess was still unprepared nearly an hour later. We were seated, but it took quite some time to get the... More
