Went with family of five. Never been before. Got right in and seated. Having never been the menu was quite confusing. Server helped some but maybe we are just slow. Very cool idea, cooking in front of you, but just wasn't that great. All you...More

Hi Jake! Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. As you saw there is an alternate method of cooking your entree which I myself prefer. The Bourguignonne is a canola oil and it sears the marinades in to your food and really...More

I have never went to a place like this... you basically cook your own food at the table. They give you a pot in the middle, and you order what you want. They cut it in bite size pieces, and you cook it. Ingenious. Great...More

We went as part of a larger group with children. Overall first impression was of a modern mix restaurant with Japanese influence: minimalist set-up between traditional Swiss country inn and Japanese on table cooking. The sadness about this is, all the cooking is speed oriented...More
