“Appetizers better than main”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

I thought this place was great for the ambiance and food choices. Good basic assortment of fish and styles to cook. We had a table of about 12 people and ordered a bunch of the appetizers to share. They were all very good and tasty. (The spring rolls were a hit!) As for my fish, it was overcooked and bland... I wasn't too happy with it. My husband liked his main but also wasn't impressed. We'd go back but try more appetizers and maybe a meat dish!

The ambiance was great and the staff were very friendly and attentive. In addition to the regular menu, there were also sections for raw and gluten free dishes. We had a great time picking and choosing between the different menus to build the perfect meal.

Very pricey for sure but definitely worth it!

“Wait til you see the menu!”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

The new remodel is fabulous.The menu offers gluten-free, vegan, sugar balanced, macrobiotic and raw choices. I wish I hadn't been too full to try the vegan Chocolate Decadence cake. Had appetizers and drinks in the bar - wonderful service on a busy night. A kamaaina special discount for locals.
