Nice view of the bay = close to the convention center and descent food. Convenient and well worth the reasonable pricing. Good service, if just a bit slow at times.

Our waitress who took care of our table was slow and confused randomly bringing food, not bringing the drinks, and getting the orders wrong or forgetting them. We were a table of 4.
The food was OK, Tuna Tataki was boring at best, shrimp tempura roll was tasty, Thai chicken roll was OK. The lobster ravioli was too over-seasoned but still good. Atmosphere was very good. We sat outside. Maybe it was an off night but don't think I'll go back

We sat on the patio and had wine and appetizers. The view is nice, the appetizers were yummy. The wine by the glass is limited but drinkable.

I had the Brick chicken, which came with green beans and truffle oil french fries. The chicken was well prepared, moist, and had a nice crispy skin. The green beans were also prepared well, good flavor with a little crunch to them, in a nice asian inspired sauce. But the star for me was the truffle oil french fries - I would have eaten as many of them as they brought me! Nice crispy seasoned shoestring fries with just enough truffle oil for that great flavor without overwhelming the potato taste. I seriously considered ordering another serving of them, but had plenty to eat and didn't want to be a pig!
