The atmosphere on the outdoor patio is very lovely even in the heat as they have a lot of trees and misters. The food, however, is disappointing in preparation and rather boring. My husband's porkchop was overcooked and dry as was my daughter's salmon. I ordered the AHI after the waitress exclaimed at how good it was. Not..it was very tasteless. The fourth of our party did enjoy his ribeye. Our sushi app was very ordinary with the fish hidden under too much sauce. The point of sushi is the fish not the sauce. Our waitress was very inexperienced about the food and the wine list ( which is overpriced for run of the mill varieties.) Thinking back it was the atmosphere that was good but the food and service were very disappointing. Mitch needs to do much better if he is to survive in the competetive desert dining scene.
