For a Friday night I was pleasantly surprised to get a spot to eat right away. At the bar, which is what I like. The sushi was good, the service was great. I asked the hostess for recommendation to appetizers, and she said she would just make it a surprise. Also asked if there were anything we were allergic to, which is a big plus in my book. It is a large place and I've always seen it packed with people, which makes for a loud dining experience. There were quite a few birthdays that night, and every time happy birthday is sung the lights go out. Great if it's your birthday; not so great if you're trying to eat, although after the first time it wasn't that big of a deal. Will definitely go back!
