“Delicious and Different”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

The Water Bowls are fresh and yummy. The garlic edamame is the best. It is one of my favorite places!

“modern and delish”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

The food was great. I highly recommend one of the bowls. Take a look at the sishi menu, it all seems really light and delish, what we ordered was amazing. the drinks are pretty good. and i am pretty sure that you have to be a model to work there.

“Very Poor for People who Know Good Food”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

The food is over priced, poorly conceived and poorly executed. It looks like the owner led with a style and wanted the food to follow along. It didn't. The service is terrible and the inside is dark, dank, and smells somewhat like a pet store. There are healthy options to choose from on the menu. The live band is 60 decibels too loud for a small patio. At least the patio had a majestic view of the dumpster and parking lot. This is one to avoid.

“Good Food...Bad everything else”
Reviewed June 1, 2012

The food here is pretty good. Great California Bowls, pretty decent sushi. Always have a good meal here.

But what is with the inside? Floors are disgusting and it smells in here. Wayyyy too dark, even when the sun is shining.

Needs renovations, but the food is good

“what happened?”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

As a local I have dined here on several occasions.
The menu has taken a change for the worse.

My old favorite dish was an oregano coated chicken with garlic mashed potatoes.
The new menu does not offer my favorite dish so I tried a pasta bowl. It reminded me of my college days when I would eat hamburger helper. Very bland and over sauced.
Dont worry you will be overcharged for your dinner and dont worry your server will be there eventually after she has finished staring at herself in the mirror and flirting with the psuedo manager.

Five years ago this was a great place for a casual dinner.
Now it reaks of cheap cologne and the bedazzled ed hardy crowd
