Too expensive for the atmosphere. It was just too noisy for a restaurant in that price range. The service was excellent - 5 stars. Due to the noise we just got an appetizer, which was okay but not phenomenal considering the price $26.

Fusion food is always risky as a lot of talent and trial and error is needed to pull it off. We started with drinks and had the mango mojito, margaritas. My mojito didn't have the mango flavor I was expecting. We ordered the sushi rolls to start. The roll with the beef had the nice truffle flavor. The tuna rolls were average. My main was the parmasean crusted grouper and it was overlooked and slightly tough. My friends had the ono with pad Thai. The Ono was average, the pad Thai didn't quite taste authentic and the fried avocado was untouched as we believed it should be fresh. Overall fairly average, some hits and misses

The food is always terrific! And, you can sit at the chef's bar and watch the chefs prepare the food.
