Great atmosphere. Variety of food from different regions in Asia. Maki rolls flavorful. Very good service. Loved the open kitchen design.

My reservation was for 9pm and they could not fulfill the reservation. I had called to confirm 9pm would work and showed up early. I waited over an hour past my reservation time until I decided to go elsewhere. The staff was overwhelmed and completely overbooked. Several customers were waiting and wanted answers. Terrible experience.

Our server couldn’t have been nicer and the feel of the restaurant was exactly what we were looking for but the food was not great. We ordered off of the Valentine’s Day specials menu. I ordered lobster fried rice and my boyfriend ordered the sea bass. Both meals were $30+. My rice was over cooked and flavorless and there was maybe 8 tiny pieces of lobster meat in it. Certainly not worth $32. The sea bass was tasty but it was a very small portion with no side for $35. I mean a very small portion to the point that he ordered a roll of sushi after our meal to eat more food. The best thing I had was my cocktail. I’m wondering if maybe the normal menu is where this restaurant succeeds but after tonight I probably won’t be back to find out.

I was really looking forward to having dinner here considering it was a special occasion (close friends birthday). It is an overpriced menu for food you can simply get in Chinatown. However, the restaurant is beautiful and it is is seaport so I guess you pay for the ambiance. The cool thing is that some dishes have different sizes in case you want to share the food and do family style. Unfortunately the service was horrible. Our server took almost 20 minutes to come greet us from the time we were seated. Then when we had our food, she never checked on us or came to ask if there was anything we needed. She paid no attention to us and it really bothered me.

It was an experience and I am glad that I tried it. Nothing we ordered was bad but none of it was outstanding. Some of the chair placements were a bit cramped.
