  • "First time at the restaurant. Very friendly staff. Night Manager was very nice. Very good food. My date and I enjoyed the place and will visit again soon."

  • "The piped i. Music in the dining room room over the booths was abnoxious it conflicted with what was playing in there, maybe it was bar music coming from the bar that was piped through? The food and prices are great but you wilill sacrafice sevice.. Both times ive been there the service jas been terribly poor, but the food made up for it. My fave is the surf and turf roll! Great for an appetizer and the biggest roll I"ve ever seen!"

  • "My reservations and dinner were on Feb14th. I had to cut some things see full review on yelp My wife's pear salad was spare but nice. My lobster soup was not so good. The smell was terrible and the taste was worse if you can believe that? My wife is the seafood lover and she couldn't get past the smell to taste it. The main course was just as disappointing my chicken was so salty even removing the skin didn't help. It is a very good thing we purchased the oysters or we would have gone home hungry. I don't know what this place is like on a regular night, but they were terrible on Valentines day which is a day the should have shined! Our waiter was so good that he could have earned the place three stars on his own. The food was that bad!"

  • "When I arrived, hostess seemed a little dazed, and preceded to tell me to wait at the front since she was out of menus. They then sat me and my date at a giant booth for 4-5 people, instead of a normal, date sized table. Food took forever to come out, and when it did, I was unimpressed. I got the "wok'd veggies", and they were all hard, ill trimmed, and in a horrible sauce. I loooove eating and normally clean my plate, but I ate maybe half of my dinner. Also, the light above the booth-table was strange. I felt like I was going to hit my head on it."

  • "Great atmosphere, Great Food, Great Service, Fun Location, Great wine and beer selection; I would recommend to a friend and come back myself."

  • "Chicken Potstickers - You get (3) fried, rectangular potstickers with a sweet/sour dipping sauce. There isn't a lot of filling in the potstickers and the flavor was just ok. I don't think I would have gotten this again as the appetizer. Maybe try the Vegetarian Samosas. Rating: 6/10. Scottish Salmon - The Salmon itself was nicely cooked but the complementing vegetables seemed to pale in comparison. You get a lot of bok choy and some of them tasted a little slimy (overcooked?) while the Yellow Curry around the salmon was very watery. I would have rather gotten the Snake River Farms Ribeye. I tasted some of my friend's and it was delicious! Rating 7/10."

  • "I arrived earlier than my date. Hostesses brought my Girl to the table. Very friendly wait staff/Hostest. Wi-Fi available...ordered Calimari ans Edemami..Cold Saki. Saki wasn't as good as the waiter suggested. Calimari was delicious...my date enjoyed the Edemami.. $60 including tip.All-in-All it was a decent dining experience."

  • "Went there for an early New Year's Eve dinner with family and friends -- a party of 7. Restaurant located in nice shopping area and has good access to city parking lot. Atmosphere is open and enticing. Menu has a wide range of food options and drink options are plentiful. Fun place to celebrate! Food was good but not great."

  • "We went to Monsoon for a little post-piano-recital family celebration. The decor knocked our 11-year-old's socks off...he was in love with the place. Service was great, food was quite good. Not the extensive and eclectic menu we remember from a couple of years ago, but still plenty of tasty offerings. We were there very early, about 5 pm, which made it quiet and kid-friendly (at least for a reasonably well-behaved kid who can stay in his seat for a whole meal). We enjoyed it very much and will definitely return!"

  • "Looks like the menu is not only getting smaller but also the quality of the non-sushi offerings is on the decline. Kung pal shrimp defining, as is curry."

  • "The waiter seemed over stretched. He was the only waiter upstairs and he had a large party and a couple other tables besides us. We got half-way through our meal before the my husband received his sashimi. The food was okay, but for the prices I expected quality better than a take-out. It wasn't bad, but for a check close to $100.00, I expect better than okay. The ambiance was very cool, and I wanted to be able to recommend this restaurant, but after our experience on Saturday, I do not think I can."
