“Absolute Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

We dined here for our anniversary and from the time we arrived the service was absolutely outstanding. From valet parking to personally being shown to our table the staff were so polite and helpful. The food - AMAZING!! Crayfish cooked to perfection and the tasters of venison, chicken, beef & salmon were worth every dollar. We cant wait to go back for more!!!

“Fantastic experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Genuine warm greeting, elegant and relaxed service. Beautiful food cooked perfectly. The sashimi was so fresh, and the beef so tender. great kids meals, thy can get a little teppanyaki set - so refreshing to have something different on the menu for the kids. thy They also had fun watching the teppanyaki Chefs. We had a very relaxed lovey evening enjoying the food and conversation. Very pretty ambience. A nice night out
