My friend was told to "move b*tch" from an employee on a Saturday night. I believe he was a bar-back. When we told a manager, instead of apologizing on behalf of his employee or doing anything about it, he had my friend escorted out of the nightclub and she wasn't allowed back in. She began to argue with the security guards because it obviously wasn't a fair situation. We were paying customers that paid for bottle service and a section (which isn't cheap). I just don't understand what kind of establishment allows their employees to call paying customers a "b*tch" and on top of that, kick that customer out as if they were in the wrong. I'm never going back there again and I wouldn't suggest any woman with self-respect to go there either.
I took my grandchildren and we had the most divine food! Miso salmon, 2 orders of sushi, wonderful appetizers..it couldn't have been better in any way. Very friendly and caring service as well and so convenient to the Denver Center of Performing Arts. I would go back in a heartbeat but sadly I live in Ohio!
The food is very good to excellent. The staff is friendly but unfortunately incompetent. There was never more than 3 tables seated. However, we constantly had to wait for things and request things like a 2nd set of chopsticks for our sushi. There was 2 of us in my party. Drinks were forgotten and slow to receive. The Udon dish while very good was awkward to eat. Removing shells that are in a soup without proper utensils is extremely difficult. Plus, no side plates to put empty shells.
We came for valentines day and I alone spent over $200 then my fiancé spent almost $300 in drinks. However, after seeing our bank statements, My boyfriend noticed that the waitress over charged us for her tip. He only tipped her $20 and she charged his card $120. Not cool at all! Beware when using your debit or credit card! The waitstaff isn't very honest! We will be fighting the charge! Never going back there again!
We might have been there on an off night because I know this place can be much better. The service was not good because our waitress asked us to repeat our order and also when to bring out the appetizer more than once. She also seemed to care less about how our meal was as she was walking away while asking the question. Eye contact was minimal. Also, the main entrée was not good. The creamy polenta and scallops wrapped in bacon were bland at best. Other than the bacon (who can mess that up?), there was just no flavor to the dish at all. I offered my feedback to the manager, who did offer 50% off the bill, which we declined. But for the price of the food, this restaurant needs to (and can do) better.
We had heard about this place being a lot of fun, but had a less-than-awesome experience.
1. An employee changed a lightbulb over our table and basically stood on our table to get to it.
2. We ordered 'new style' sashimi, which comes with 6 pieces, and they brought us the wrong type with only 3 pieces. Then when we sent it back, it seemed like the sushi chef had to read the menu and discuss with the server about how to prepare the style we wanted. When we got it back, it still only had 5 pieces, not 6.
3. One of our entrees took forever to come. They brought out the first entree, and it was a solid 20 minutes before the second came out. I assume the server forgot to put it in, but she didn't admit that.
4. They charged us incorrectly on several things on the bill, but by the time we could get the server's attention we decided it wasn't worth it and we had a show to catch.
Not a good experience. Maybe the nightclub scene would be better here, but for dinner I do not recommend it.
The green chile eggrolls and sushi rolls were excellent. The service eas good and it was easy to have a nice conversation with a friend i hadn't seen in awhile. Very convenient if you are going to a show.
The food was pretty good. But the service was very slow despite there only being 3 tables in our section at the time, the server lacked enthusiasm, and description of food was not given. This restaurant has prime location to the Denver Performing Arts Complex, this is why we chose this place for our outing to Jackie Evancho. Unfortunately, we will not be returning.
The waiter was flustered with too many tables, and he didn't write down our order so not everything came out right, but overall it was a good experience. The valet is a great deal if you are seeing a show, just drive up and drop it off, have a snack before the show and another drink afterwards.
