Quiet, nice ambience. Excellent and attentive wait staff. I had a spicy tuna roll followed by pan seared sea bass that was perfect: buttery and perfectly cooked. I've been here before and I will be returning.

Stopped by for happy hour and appetizers. The tempura roll was outstanding. Beer selection was great. Very clean and not overcrowded. Our server was very attentive and friendly.

Service is exemplary and the food is even better. My wife got the veal chop and I got the 12oz filet mignon. Our sides were potatoes, vanilla bourbon sweet potatoes and caramelized brussels sprouts. Everything paired well with each. Left stuff and definitely plan on...More
