    Dined on 10/17/2014
    It was very quiet. The menu very small. The hostess was fantastic. Drinks were good dim sum was tasty. The rest of the meal was only ok. I did not eat my ceviche. It was not what they said it was. It was supposed to be tuna, salmon, and hamachi we tried it as a new place. I am sure it's great for music and drinks food. Meh.
