My husband and I go here often since it is within walking distance of our home. The staff is very friendly and the food is consistently good. Happy hour cocktails are very inexpensive and are not for the weak. Sushi selection is good and the salads are outstanding. Unique salad selection you can't get just anywhere. The beet salad, arugula... More

Our group of 6 met at the bar an hour before our dinner reservation which was at 7. That gave us 1hour to enjoy happy hour. The 3$ spots were all good. A special call our to the calamari. Drinks were equally low priced and delicious. Once seated we reviewed the menu. We noshed on the 7$ cheese plate which... More

Stopped in at Ovations for a quick bite with my mom and my son. We were all so disappointed. It started off poorly with the waiter being very dis-interested (he waved to other people as he read us the specials.) We had calamari which was pre-made frozen. My son's shrimp scampi - made from frozen shrimp. My chicken - so... More

We went for dinner after a really long day. I found the menu unique. Lots of Italian options and also sushi. Not a ton of sushi options but they had enough. We had the meat and cheese appetizer. I recommend it. I loved the peppers! We also had calamari and well it was just calamari. I ordered the sushi and... More

The food here is excellent. It has something for everyone from fish, pasta, steak, sushi to wraps. The starters are a reasonable size but order 1 starter for 2 people. The service was a little slow, but the food made up for the slow service. Worth a visit and will go back if I'm passing again.

Went to check out the food since my daughter And her fiancée were looking for a place for their rehearsal dinner. The food was really good. There were 5 of us and we all picked something different and all had delicious meals. The service was 5 star! Very attentive and friendly! (Granted, it was not that busy for a Saturday... More

The menu reads like a diner since there are so many options, the food taste like fine dining though. They have good sushi, good italian, burger is pretty good, and good steaks. You really can't go wrong. Lunch portions are a tad small, but dinner portions are good size.

Near work this place is great for business lunch as well as happy hour after work. Menu is diverse and salads are always fresh and unique. Sushi offerings are surprisingly good for a restaurant that offers mostly American cuisine. Great atmosphere too, warm and cozy bar.
