The sushi was great. Some of the seafood in my main course was overcooked. The waiter seems preoccupied with another table. We had high expectations, and had just an okay experience.

The selection of sushi and sashimi were exceptional during our visit. Each order was extremely fresh and delicately prepared. The fatty tuna, yellowtail and the Morimoto Chirashi were some of the notable highlights of our meal.

This restaurant always amazes me for the inventive and creative cuisine that pushes your taste buds to the extreme. Most excellent wine and especially sake list. Hint...go for Kyoto sakes. Service was great and ambiance comforting. A complete dining experience!
