We came here for Valentine's Day dinner before a show at the Lesher Center. I had a spicy drink that was just the thing to help me with my allergies. We shared an arugula and blood orange salad, then each ordered our own fresh pasta entrees. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. More

The service was very disorganized but the food was good. They were basically overwhelmed with the Valentine’s Day crowd. Wish they had a had a regular menu rather then a fixed price and restricted special menu. Had to remind them to bring drinks and make refills. Service was very slow overall. Second time at this establishment for dinner. 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
