“Good for tapas style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Good flavors coming together, and a beautiful ambiance. The plates are very small and a little overpriced. They have an amazing sake selection, service is wonderful and the dessert (OMG) we ordered the sample plate, nothing to waste there!! Good experience but personally think that prices fell on this stereotyped, social upscale mix and mingle atmosphere rather then the food since I've been to other places offering same quality but at more reasonable prices. We did have a good time and the food was very good.

“AMAZING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Amazing seafood! Amazing service! A little loud of me but once you take a bite; the noise is silenced by exceptional flavor. Also, Mel Gibson was dining while we were.( which may have accounted for the noise level)

“Creative food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Beautiful crowd, jam packed and a bit noisy.
Very creative, excellent food but small portions and expensive.
Service fairly good taking into consideration the heavy attendance.
Eclectic decor and cool location.

“so much food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

We had the classic tasting and were more than well fed. It came complete with the freshest sashimi, perfectly cooked beef and an impressive dessert center piece. Our waiter was charming and knowledgeable, and if he didn't know the answer to our questions, he would find out for us. Although a little loud, and we got scolded several times for taking pictures, I will definitely return on my next visit to Miami.
