After reading all the reviews, I wanted to try this place, but I knew I wasn't going to be ordering steak. As I have stated before I can often find food at finer dining that fits my per diem. First of all the hostess greeted me & offered me various place to stay. Fortunately they do offer dining at the bar, which is great for solo dinner. The bartender took very good care of me. He knew the menu & could make recommendations, the wine list was on the iPad. I wasn't terribly hungry that night, so I just ordered an appetizer. The filet migon sushi roll for under $12. The plate I received was beautiful (see picture!). The sushi probably had about nine pieces, they were sliced thinner than I other sushi I have had at other places. It made it a bit hard to pick up with the chop sticks. That would be my only complaint, because there was nothing wrong with the taste. I would like to go back & try some other items next time. Decor is dark greys, very classy with a view of the city of Springfield (30th floor of the Hilton). It is very elegant, although I was dressed casually, I did not feel out of place nor treated differently. The only thing I found confusing was the wait staff dress. Classic black pants, white shirt, with a black tie that was left open hanging off their neck. I kept thinking the waiter I saw coming in & out of back area was off duty! It took me awhile to figure out that was er, uniform for all the wait staff. However the bartender had a business tie, not loosed but tied properly. I personally would either ditch the tie entirely, or have the wait staff tie the classic way. This had nothing to do with their service, I just found it odd. (Ok, maybe I do watch too many shows on the Food Network, which talks about presentation at a restaurant.) Lastly, as I was leaving the hostess did inquire how I enjoyed my meal. She did this with the couple that left before me as well. I thought that was a nice touch, since I don't recall ever having a hostess "follow up" after the meal before.
