    Excellent food and an excellent find. Do to the location, this restaurant probably gets a good portion of its customer base by word-of-mouth. I intend to spread the word.

    Good food. A little on the pricey side — lower entree prices meant smaller portions. Hence, more orders had to be made.

  • I have been to this particular
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 12/29/2007
    I have been to this particular location (4) times. With groups ranging from 4-6 people. All times were for dinner. A very welcoming establishment. Service from the wait staff is always helpful, in educating on temperature to cook meats, variety of sauces, and food items on the menu. Food is always fresh, and changing with the seasons. Great ambience, with a slight buzz. Great choice of Sake, wine, and cocktails. My suggestion is order as your first round all the items you really want to try, then as second round, repeat or try other items. The portions are little to decent. It's expensive for someone of my groups appetite where we eat a lot. Signup on their mailing list, and you get updates on promo's. Overall a great great place to dine.
