    Restaurant was short staffed, took a long time for the drink orders to be taken and arrive, and my cold drink was Luke warm and tasteless.... The owner kept reminding me I need to tip according to menu price instead of the coupon discounted rate, that was quite annoying. Food was so so, nothing memorable.

    The service is great and I really enjoyed the food. The executive chef came out to greet us and gave us extra ice cream for dessert. Her husband also stopped by to recommend some wine. Will definitely go back!

    A light and airy restaurant with a modern touch. The chef greeted each table, talked about the menu and even served our plates. Everyone was made to feel very special. We enjoyed our tasty, well prepared food. We will return again.

    The chef came out to talk to customers and apologized for slow service due to special event going on that night. The food was good.

    Zach the GM was very kind to come and introduce himself and check on our experience! Our server was very personable and showed a gracious amount of hospitality! The place was remodeled and has a very chic sophisticated look...however, the music level was beyond for me, personally. I couldn't hear my guest :( Also, the sweaty smell from the gym slightly lingers as you first walk in. At first, when you walk in it looks like a deli spot but, the dining is in the rear part of the restaurant. My thoughts on the food are excellent! Delicious! I ordered the Shrimp and Salmon dinner with greens and wild rice! Nice and buttery taste--absolutely delicious! The tiramisu was exceptional! Not too sweet not too bland. Thank you very much!

  • Hoping it lives up to its promise

    An ambitious and thoughtful menu just fails to live up to its promise - every dish was off just a bit - the risotto well cooked but too salty (an unusual comment from me), the truffle flavor on the (quite ordinary) fries was minimal, the au jus for the flat iron steak showed up 10 minutes before the entree and was cold, the sorbetto lacked flavor and was icy. Service was attentive and helpful. I just hope for better execution next time, if I go, and expect such for the pricing. Noisy room not conducive to conversation below shouting.

    We really enjoyed our dining experience here. As a party of four, we were celebrating my mother's 50th birthday. Kombu was quite accommodating and really nice from the host to the server to the chef! We felt welcomed and well appreciated. There was a party of about 10-15 people from Neiman Marcus celebrating and we did not once feel disturbed by their large party. The fries are amazing, we tried each style. The salmon was prepared perfectly. My hubby enjoyed the drinks. They have the greatest happy hour too! It lasts until 9pm where some places have that 6pm or 7pm cut off. Once we have our baby, I will definitely be back for happy hour for some cocktails and good eats! Great for date night, ladies night, double dates and group events.
