Took three of my friends here and sampled almost half of a pretty extensive menu. The sesame tuna was a recommended, but it was the scallops over a Edamame puree that stole the show. They were perfectly seared and then SLICED! never had that before. Other plates we enjoyed were thai shrimp cakes, edamame ravioli, papaya salad and seared cauliflower. We had many other dishes, all really amazing but those stood out.

The place prides itself on its martini menu, if you are a real martini fan, stick to the basics and they will hit hard. The Sin City is also a real crowd pleaser.

Service was hectic, but attentive and very good. We sat at the new patio out front which was beautiful.

Don't miss this place, its a gem

Wait staff unfriendly to the point of adversarial. We arrived and were left waiting to be seated for a good 10 minutes despite half a dozen open tables and looks from the wait staff. Waitress spent more time clearing the tables around us than asking us if we needed anything. Good luck getting your empty water glass filled.
Food mediocre - the spicy thai beef was oversauced and tough.
Ambiance - the red colored walls reminded us of a scene from a bad vampire movie - very angry along with the loud banging music.
This was by far the worst dining experience ever and we would NEVER recommend this place to even our worst enemy.
