This place is GREAT! I had dinner here 3 nights in a row entertaining clients. The shushi and ribeye are my favorite. Service is always friendly and outgoing. It's especially worth noting that they are flexible in several ways ... would you rather have a half order? No problem. Would you like a modification to the recipe? No problem. The... More

Sauces are theee best; on their specialty sushi rolls, on their miso butterfish. I could be perfectly happy with any sauce and a bowl of hot rice. Clearly they have a talent for pairing the new with the traditional amd their aged steak is killer. Have NEVER been disappointed here.

A great place if you like sushi or Japanese cuisine - a bit on the pricey side but worth it - service was excellent except for the hostess who seemed a bit confused on the timing... we were first told it was a 25 min wait and then less than 5 mins later we were seated. So far the best... More

Nice place for dinner. We had sushi and the gigantic steak that we split. There was 7 of us and they got us right in to eat.

We went back to this restaurant to get this one dish again!! The seared ahi tuna and crab cake was absolutely fantastic. We also ordered a couple of sushi selections and both were good, but not outstanding like the tuna and crabcake!

Nice family or group atmosphere, quick service and the specialties are good. The sushi was decent (speaking as a long-time sushi eater who lived in Japan). For the best deals are early bird and Sun-Mon specials, which is important if you have a large group.

Food was awesome, atmosphere was great, and the service was fantastic. They had live entertainment and it was very entertaining. Been back several times and haven't been disappointed yet.

The panko crusted ahi roll did not taste fresh. It is probably one of their most popular rolls and it tasted like it was made way ahead of time. The butter fish dish was good as always. Even with the 50% off on Sunday and Monday between 5-6 (after standing on line for an hour before they open), not worth... More
