Excellent, and I am not a sushi lover. But I may be a believer now. The service was wonderful. Two of us ordered a margarita that was spicy, we didnt like it so they took it off the bill. The atmosphere and location are super. I can't even tell you what we ate ( someone else did the ordering) but... More

We just went for a light bite, so we sat at the bar. The restaurant is beautiful and swanky. The bartenders were friendly, but too busy for attentive service, which really wasn't their fault. We ordered a few sushi rolls and were expecting them to be awesome, but they were just average....nothing special or memorable. I've had much better in... More

I came here with high expectations on a date with my husband the Saturday before our wedding. I really wanted to like this place but was extremely disappointed. I felt so horrible for organizing a date here that I had to apologize to my husband. We paid close to $300 for a lunch that I thought was probably valued at... More

Unique twist on traditional Japanese cuisine. Sushi platter was expertly prepared, and very creative in their use of various types of fish. Sticky rib appetizer was the best!

My wife and I splurged and both did the tasting menu as we figured that would give us a little taste of a variety of things instead of picking a couple dishes. The food was great, although much more than we needed. That being said, we thoroughly enjoyed each course as well as a couple of the specialty cocktails from... More

Really enjoy this restaurant. The food, the presentation, everything clicked with this restaurant. We always go there everytime we are in Napa. My favorite dishes are the Sushi Pizza and Wasabi Pawns. The green tea with lemon and herbs is also delightful. I found the relaxed atmosphere to be most accommodating, very different than Morimoto NYC where you are being... More

Horrible restaurant. Overpriced and terrible food. Don't waste your time on this unbelievable bad food. I am a vegetarian. They tried to serve me uncooked tofu and a nasty tasting rice dish. It is shocking that a Japanese restaurant can't accommodate a vegetarian. My husband and my Mother in Law ordered a fish dish. They were asked if they wanted... More

It might be too fancy for Napa standards but I love it. Location is perfect. Downtown, just steps from the Napa River. The staff is excellent and polite. It is not the best place to eat in Napa but if you are craving some Asian flair, hit this place up. Try the Wagyu Dumplings. I have never had sushi here.... More

The food is superb, but you need a bull horn to speak to your party. There were two of us and it was sad to see large parties not even attempting to talk because of how they'd literally have to scream to be heard. Pass or go early, or sit outside
