The food here is always amazing and that is why we keep coming back, almost weekly. We always sit at the bar and order a few rolls and some wine. However, next time we won’t be sitting at the bar. The bartender had a very foul mouth (f-bombs) and was so loud it was very distracting to our conversation. We will be back for the awesome sushi, but next time we will reserve a table in the dining room. More

Really enjoyed this place although felt it was a bit pricey and will save it for special occasions. The food was great, service superb. Would have liked to see a few more wines by the glass. Tends to get loud if you're up front by the bar but towards the rear was quiet and there's an outdoor area in front which would be fun in better weather. More

Steak | Walnut Creek, East Bay

Flemings is an establishment steakhouse, at home in New York City, Chicago or Walnut Creek. Although we don't eat red meat, the restaurant offers many, many options including lobster, shrimp, scallops and wonderful salads. The seared ahi tuna is a standout. It is expensive and I think some items are over priced including the cocktails and desserts. But for a special occasion, it's worth the money. More

MSK is an excellent farm to table restaurant. The salads and vegetables are the stars of the menu. We also had a ribeye and salmon. Both were very good but not outstanding. Demitri was extremely helpful in selecting a wine to go with our diverse courses. We will come again but likely will wait for summer and sit outside. More

This is our second time being here and the service is again slow. It seemed like there were enough servers but it took 10 minutes before anyone even came and said hello. you should have at least have a drink order in right away. We did receive water right away. Once we had a server it was good service I am not sure what the issue is but this happened last time also. The food was great! We love this place. There are a few things they could do to improve the feeling of the restaurant. They need to soften the lights and warm the feeling up with maybe an electric fireplace in the bar area. Don't get me wrong we love this place and were very happy to see it was busy. This is the Gem in Walnut Creek! More

Sushi | Walnut Creek, East Bay

Easily the best, most authentic Japanese food in Walnut Creek. Great sushi and other izakaya type dishes. Service was attentive and friendly. Only issue was the ambiance. Nothing about this restaurant's interior says Japanese cuisine. In fact, the interior doesn't feel like a restaurant at all. Cheap minimal cafe tables and chairs look like they belong in a trendy frozen yogurt place. Music was a carousel of top 40s junk. Also there was no seating at the "sushi bar" which i think was a re-purposed ice cream counter. Therein lies the problem, this should be a fine dining establishment as the food is some of the best Japanese cuisine in the Bay Area, but the atmosphere is in total contradiction with that. Bottom line: Great food and service. Definitely coming back. Maybe I'll ask if they can play different music next time? More
