My wife and I ate here in November 2017 for an anniversary dinner. We were seated within 30 seconds of check-in. Reservations are absolutely needed. All of the staff that we interacted with were very helpful and professional. We had the California roll sampler and...More

My husband and I had an early Sunday reservation (5:30pm) for dinner. We were seated promptly, at a table that was not ideally located. It abutted a staff travel walkway and the constant movement just behind me was very distracting. We ordered the Caesar salad...More
