“excellent sushi; mostly good food; service uneven; best choice at JW”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

We ate here three times. Had sushi, a selection of appetizers and a duck entree. The entree was so-so the seaweed salad wasn't great and the chicken salad was terrible (very dry). The chicken dumplings were just ok. On the other hand the sushi was excellent, the spring rolls also great (chicken and veggie), the chicken dumpling soup superb. Service was strange - sometimes very nice and attentive; sometimes we felt as though we had fallen off the edge of the earth - flagging down folks to remind them of requested drinks. All in all though - your best choice at the JW - we enjoyed. Request an outside table - very pretty.

“very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2010

This is the best Restaurant at The JW.
The Sushi was delicious as were the fish dish and the service was awesome, and it had better be since the other Restaurants at The JW were NOT up to The JW standards.
