There are a lot of great notes
There are a lot of great notes for this place. First, the service was excellent. We were well attended to. Upon first glance, the food looked like a typical sushi restaurant with some notable American classics as mains. However, given a deeper inspection, the sushi roll options where fun and unique; some options include a Mexican Roll, a Filet Roll and a Guacamole roll. The sushimi is fresh, well presented and fairly priced.

Not bad, but not great
I've eaten here twice. The first we ordered hot food and the second rolls. The hit food is better than the Japanese rolls which lack pizazz and are on the bland side. Nice, clean restaurant, but just OK. We really didn't like one roll after we tried it and the waitress have us a hard time about getting another one. I think she was new though. I will say the fish seems very fresh and the place seems clean and is nice looking and modern. There are a lot of places to eat in NYC, do I font know if I would waste my time on this one.

Not a fluke!
Our first trip was a surprise, especially since it's in the lower level of a hotel. I thought we'd get the usual substandard 'hotel restaurant' meal, but that wasn't the case. Cocktails were innovative...appetizers were amazing...entree for my non-sushi loving wife was on point and I thoroughly enjoyed the omikase I ordered. The dessert was the best, especially the chocolate lava cake with a white chocolate ganache center. Well this second visit was almost as good as the first, the only thing that was off was the dessert...while my wife's panna cotta was wonderful, my lava cake was hard in the center and not flavorful at all and the white ganache was not used. After sending back the order and getting a second one the same way, I gave up.
