    I have been going to this place since it changed from Glider Inn to Mahe. I hope this explains the plane on top of the restaurant. We, my Husband and I, went on a Saturday night, which since we had made a reservation, there was not a wait to be seated. It can be on a Saturday night, We ordered the Tataki wraps, excellent and Chioppino (sp). Everything was excellent. I could not think of anyplace better for seafood and sushi, in a energenic vibe of the room. Parking is via complimentary valet and they are very friendly and quick. This place is one of our go to spots in Seal Beach.

    We both had the Cioppino. This is a delicious mixture of shellfish in a fantastic tomato broth. Restaurant is busy and loud but the food makes up for it.

    Wasnt impressed. I have lived within 5 miles of this restaurant my entire life, and have never been- but have always heard great things. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. I came with a party of four- two of us in dresses.... and at our first table we were soaked from the wet seats, which i'm assuming they had just cleaned (very happy they are being cleaned, but was not happy to have a wet butt the rest of dinner). My husband asked for his steak med rare, it was med well... if not well. No pink whatsoever. My sushi was ok. Not something to write home about. All in all... nothing terrible to report, but I was definitely disappointed. Hoping it was a fluke... Maybe an off night.

    We brought our 10 year old and she had a great time. I wouldn't bring young kids at night. Will definitely go back. For sushi, the prices were great and you can also get food like a burger for non sushi lovers.

    We made an early reservation at the last minute and were fortunate to have Melanie as our server. She was great! Poke appetizer was good, not great. Filet tender and tasty. Ahi entree a bit over cooked. Veggies crisp if a little too much oil. Chocolate cake dessert was a chocolate lovers dream. Great service.

    Took my wife here for her birthday, with our younger kids in tow. It was a Friday night, so Mahe was packed with people and very busy. Everything was great, but it was very loud. The place is fairly tight, and the bar noise flows right into the restaurant (and I think there was a live band playing back there on this particular night). So it was tough to have a conversation across the table, but at least the noise masked my own normally loud kids! I'll definitely go back, but I think I'll try a weekday.

Your servers are extremely charming and informed, the grilled halibut is unbelievable, we love your wines, the valet service is wonderful, and we couldn't look forward to it eating out more, each time we come. Thank you for making such a wonderful experience for us!

It was very tasty. The service was wonderful. Food was delicious. We had some sunshine rolls and then dinner. We had the mahi mahi dinner, the seafood pasta, ciopinno, and a tasty beet salad. We ddid not have room for dessert but made plans to definitely come back!

    Server at the bar side not polite. Pushing the people at the dance floor to pass through and not even saying excuse me. I think they expect that by pushing us away were suppose to understand and know that we need to move away from them. Dance floor needs to be a bit bigger. Maybe it will avoid the pushing as well if they make te dance floor bigger and not so tight and squeeze.

The drinks are good as well, and the wine is a healthy serving. The menu is a bit pricey, but absolutely worth every penny. We actually drive 90 miles to enjoy a meal here and it is worth every mile as well! You will not be disappointed!
