We snagged a table last minute after a matinee, and I’m very glad a reservation was open. The place was nearly empty when we walked in, but filled up quickly. We ordered drinks and each got an entree. With the entree comes miso soup and...More

Fabulous flavors of top shelf Japanese seafood (they also have a couple meat items we've never had). Try the chef's special plates if you don't mind an expensive meal (with drinks you'll hit $150 or above for two). The very best Unagi sushi possible and...More

The first night we stopped by, they lost power due to storm. Eagerly, we went back a night later. It was a good meal. It didn't hold a torch to other restaurants I've reviewed. It was highly priced and the food wasn't great.
