                                          I was able to catch up with friends Hinoki. The service was pretty good and the food was pretty good.

                                          We really enjoyed this restaurant, we had delicious food and great service. I do think that we over ordered and it would’ve been nice for the server to give us more guidance since it was the first time the 12 of us had eaten there!

                                          The whole automatic 20% service charge surreptitiously added to the bill without any mention by staff, hoping to see an unsispecting customer add even more tip, is a bit of a turn off. Not going back because of this practice.

                                          Beautiful romantic ambiance! The service was on point! All the food we ordered was super delish! Our appetizer was lobster roll and boar ribs. Main dish was pork chop and cod and fried rice all yummy! The manager Beverly came to our table and greeted my husband happy birthday. The miso doughnuts was the bomb. No complimentary bread you have to order and pay $14 which I think is not a good value for a bread. Cocktails were all good with good amount of alcohol. Will be back again and again!

                                          Everything on the menu is delicious and very complex on flavors and presentation. Wild boar ribs were so unusual and delicious. The Japanese yam is delectable and you will never try anything like this anywhere else

                                          Service was terrible. Took about 20 min for someone to acknowledge our table and the servers were super clueless in everything I was asking. Ruined my dads bday dinner. Good was not the best.

                                          The restaurant is very vibrant and busy, which is really fun. The noise level quite loud. The food was a bit of a disappointment: overly salty and not as spectacular as I remember from previous dinners here. Our guests made a similar observation as to their dinners. The staff was great, very friendly and accommodating…though our waiter was not as attentive as our table was left unattended for long stretches of time. Perhaps there was not enough staff to wait the tables? Our overall bill was around 700-for 5 people, one was not drinking. That seemed high to me for the overall quality.

                                          The noise level at the restaurant would be less of a problem if the music played could be toned down considerably. It is hard to have conversation with person across the table,considering the noise of people talking, and the music just makes it even worse. The choice of music is also important.

                                          The worst food I have ever eaten. Arrived 10 minutes before reservation and waited nearly 40 minutes to be sat. $400 dinner for two, took 3 hours to get through an incredibly basic set menu. They didn’t even ask how I wanted the steak cooked, it came out almost like jerky and was completely inedible. The slab of chicken was mush. If you’re under staffed don’t take the reservations.

                                          Valentines disaster… such a let down. Food was terrible, drinks were extremely slow, it was a complete waste of an evening. Won’t be recommending this nor coming back.

                                          We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Hinoki. The food was fabulous but the music was way too loud and not the kind that we like at all. The place is very dark, which is fine with us but some people might not like it. We sat inside but the patio outside looked beautiful. Looking into the open kitchen was also very interesting. Maybe we’ll go back and sit outside but we definitely wouldn’t take our elderly mother-in-law there. She hates dark and noisy.

                                          It was very expensive. We were four people and while drinks were good- waiter told us to order more and we ended up with way too much food. Not happy. But we would go back and just order less next time.

                                          I was here with one of my best friends and we loved every meal. The service was impeccable. They were constantly checking in with us to ensure we were okay. The food was super delicious. We had the Lobster roll which was so tasty, I mean we are the whole thing in minutes. We also had the Maitake mushrooms. Honestly so tasty. Shiitake fried rice was absolutely delicious. I still think about it. Everything here is shareable so everyone in your part can enjoy a little bit of everything. The cocktails are delicious as well but the food and service is the highlight of this restaurant.

                                          We had a great date night and the food at Hinoki & the Bird is as good and innovative as it was when the store first opened! The only thing that wasn’t perfect was that after our server dropped our bill and told us that he was clocking out and to take our time, he then came back and asked for a credit card. He said the manager was on him to end his shift within 6 hours. Not sure what that was about, but beyond that, it was a lovely evening and so nice to be back at an old favorite and see it doing well!

                                          First off have to say one of the best restaurants I’ve eaten at in a long time ! I’m craving it already ! Had several dishes and all were so spot on in taste and presentation ! Charming relaxing patio is where I was seated , we asked the waiter to take time bringing out dishes and he was amazing . It was truly a dining experience. He suggested the yam and so glad he did was so yummy . I had kale salad , octopus, bread , yam , black cod , and salmon . Of course sharing plates . Oh and the cocktails not to be missed !! Loved it .

                                          Went for a anniversary dinner on a Thursday. The venue and ambiance was beautiful. We ordered the shashimi and lobster roll got apps and they were really tasty and light. We also ordered the crispy chicken which was crispy but unfortunately was also very bland. I ordered the duck rice as my main and it was fresh and hot it also had a big portion so it could feed too. But again the duck itself was underseasoned. All of the seafood was amazing but I feel like they struggled with adequately seasoning my chicken and duck. The service was also not the greatest. We were seated outside and after we ordered our waiter barely checked on us throughout the evening. Overall it was still a pretty good experience and I would go back for a more informal meal instead of a “special occasional”

The outdoor patio is gorgeous and the vibe makes you feel like you could be having dinner anywhere in the world. The manager and staff were so professional and welcoming. Perfect spot and delicious food for a date night, special event or just catching up with old friends!

                                          Service was poor. The servers tried their best, but the food arrived 2 hours late, drinks took 20 mins to get served. Food was expensive and the steak was tough. The ambiance and music was nice though

                                          Food was extremely slow out of the kitchen. Everything was tasty, however. Only complaint was the wait. Took nearly an hour to get food out and salad and two sides never made it to the table.
