This is one of a handful of places we go when we want a reliably good meal, with a lot of tasty choices, no wait to be seated, and a casual, neighborhood atmosphere. We regularly order from all over the menu, including the sushi, and have never had a bad meal. Generous portions. My only pet peeve is that the tables *always* feel sticky. I truly don't think it's a cleanliness issue -- I think it's because the tabletops are painted (vs. glass or plastic) and the moisture makes the satin finish sticky. But the food is quite good.
