    Arrived at 6:00 PM. The server came and introduced herself and had water brought to our table by 6:05. By 6:30 she hadn't returned, so we left. On the way out we explained to the hostess why were leaving...she offered a very matter of fact "sorry". The staff seemed rather unprofessional and unorganized. We did have plenty of time to take in the lack-luster ambience while there. Appears kid friendly though, as I observed a number of kids eating pizza from boxes that their parents had apparently brought in from across the street. This not a place for true dining enthusiasts. Fortuitously, we discovered a terrific wine bar and restaurant across the way which I would highly recommend.

    Food was excellent, but our service was not. We were a group or five, but seemed to be quite a bother to ouR server. He was very slow getting to us, and throughout had a bad attitude. That has never been the case before at Jade, usually exceptional!

    Received very good service and all of our party of six enjoyed their meals. It's an enjoyable buzzy atmosphere but a little sound dampening on walls would help make it a bit easier to have a conversation in a group.

    Our servers made the whole experience! We came in on a stormy night but chose to sit outside and our severs offered for us to go in as well as had another table ready incase it started to storm on us. Our server and a couple other servers outside catered to our every need, helped us choose food, wine and at the end even brought a surprise dessert for our family since we were there celebrating my daughter's high school graduation! The experience with our servers made the wine, food, atmosphere etc.... seem out of this world!

    Extensive and creative sushi - try the Candy Crush - it was outstanding. First time there, but have to come back and try more items on the menu. A bit pricy, but if you love good sushi it really shouldn't matter.

    Very good meal! We ate Jade Specialties. Good beer and wine selection. One of our meals was angel hair with shrimp, eggs, onions, carrots, topped with grilled scallops. Shrimp was outstanding. Scallops, not so much. The other was Pork Ribeye. Large serving, left the diner satisfied. Only one dessert which was Chocolate Lava cake. Very nice. Recommend a reservation as they were turning diners away.

    While our waiter was slow, our food was great. We had asked the server for recommendations on sushi, and he seemed to rattle off a list he had memorized without really giving us details. Oh well, we were pleased with quality and taste. They did not have tamari, which seemed a little odd for an Asian restaurant. Ate ourselves silly!

    First time having lunch here. The sushi seemed fresh but way too loosely rolled. We both ended up wearing most of our food and still had to go back to work smelling like fish. Tasty though!!! Entree' however was very dry and better left to be a dinner meal instead of lunch.

    Unfortunately this was not a good experience. My wife's salmon was overcooked and the broccoli rabe was cold. I'm not sure if it was supposed to be chilled but it wasn't good. I'd been to Jade a few years ago and had a good experience (large party and we had many kinds of sushi, which were good) but this experience wasn't very good. I had a sushi roll as an appetizer and it was pretty good but my Udon soup was just fair. The server was nice but they were overcrowded and it seemed to take quite a while.

    Loved the food - I had crispy sesame chicken -- not too much breading and loved the sauce. Gave you way too much food ! My husband had Yakisobo noodles with beef. It was very good --not spicy. Atmosphere was very upscale. Service was A + . Enjoyed it and will go back again.

    We love Jade, we go here at least once a month. The food is always amazing, however, my overall rating is only 3 stars because I've noticed a decline in service. The restaurant hasn't been as crowded as normal, yet it took 5-7 minutes to get water. They have also been out of something every time I've gone! I wanted a mojito, but they were out of mint leaves! My husband ordered their seasonal draft beer, he was able to have 1 pint. When he ordered round 2, we were told they were out of beer!! The bartender needs to get better at ordering because it was a few months ago when I ordered their seasonal and they were out of that too. Their drink menu in general leaves much to be desired- they should consider revamping the drink menu.

    We visit Jade for dinner often and have a great experience everytime. The food is always excellent. We love the Cherry Blossom Roll, Hella Hot Roll, and Yellowtail Fantasy (tried for the first time this visit, we will definitely get it again). All the servers there are great, they all work together to make sure every table is taken care of. Its hard to find good service these days, but you get it at Jade! We had had a not so good experience there about a year ago, we went back a couple months ago to give it a second chance and we had Bryan as our server. Safe to say he is one of the best servers we've had and we've been dining at Jade because he made our experience at Jade enjoyable.

    The wait staff was friendly and efficient. All the food was good. I was able to get sushi and the rest of my family was able to find cooked items to their liking. ; ) Prices were a little high, but Jade is in a good location and is somewhat trendy, so I guess you have to pay for that.

    This was my first time at Jade. I have heard good things about the restaurant for several years, but just have not had a chance to go. I was not disappointed. I ordered from the sushi menu and had a salad from the regular menu. Both items were tasty, fresh, and satisfying. I was with a group of 8 and our server was very helpful in answering questions as well as taking our orders and delivering the food. If you like asian cuisine and a nice, quiet, upscale dining experience, go to Jade.
