when we arrived hostess tried to seat us at a table that was ridiculous. We requested to be moved and she did it immediately to a nicer table. She still buried us when there we’re much better area’s that remained empty the entire time we were there.
In the review I said the food was very good and I meant it.

Service was terrible and so slow. They gave us our Bill before all our food was out. Our drinks didn’t come out in time. We spent a small fortune and the food was not what it used to be. Super bummed out as we were excited to go out to an old favorite after so long.

Our waiter Barry was fabulous. We were disappointed that some of our favorite foods were no longer on the menu. Plus, the NY steak was prepared differently than before and not as tasty. We’re not happy with the menu changes. The reasons for our frequent visits are no longer available so unfortunately we won’t be visiting as frequently. Please bring back the veggie tempura and house salad. Thank you

I know they are recovering from the pandemic. However this visit was really bad. They brought food and we had to constantly request utensils and plates that took a while. Missing standard items such as soy and wasabi. We had to ask and ask. Everything took forever. Waiters were rushed, they were probably way understaffed. They food was not up to their former standards. One item was “on its way” after a long time I asked if it was ready or not and the server just refunded the item as they never prepared it. For now I will avoid this place. I try to be patient as I know the hard times restaurants have gone through, and most are friendly while dealing with hiccups. Not here, on top of it, the staff seemed annoyed that we were reminding them we needed utensils

Honestly. Service was horrible. Couldn’t even get water. The food quality was the worse I’ve every had there. And we ordered everything at once and still waited 30 minutes for the food to come out. Made no sense the place wasn’t even busy. Just bad experience I’ve been there so many times. But it was bad enough that I won’t go back.

What a pleasure it was dinning here with my husband. Good was on point, being a chef I’m a bit of a snob and loved it all. The tomahawk short rib yum! Not cheap but well worth it all. Thank you

Spicy tuna crispy rice is made waaay ahead of time.....
Avacado truffle oil crispy rice made far ahead of time..
Theese items are no longer good.....not fresh...tastes like grocery store food
Other items such as the ceviche and albacore with crispy onions were delicious.

But overall....not a great experience

This is a very upscale Japanese restuarant and the prices reflect their quality and clientele. We sat in the outdoor patio, which was pleasant, but can be a little breezy at night. They have a broad selection from sushi and sashimi to cooked Japanese dishes. They have a broad selection of all the favorite rolls. I happened to have an avocado/cucumber roll which they were happy to roll in soy paper instead of seaweed. It was delicate and delicious. The selections from the robata menu are terrific. Choose from Ribeye, Short Rib, Pork or Chicken- grilled to perfection. We also tried the grilled asparagus and the miso glazed cod which were so yummy. All in all for a special occasion this is worth the splurge. Very high quality and attentive service.

Our server was great but that was about it. Sugarfish Sushi is like 10x better and not as expensive. Also the Wagyu skewer - was Wagyu ground beef...like hamburger beef. The Spicy Crispy rice with salmon and serrano was 80% rice 20% salmon and .1% serrano. There is much better out there ya'll.

Hadn’t been since before covid and they really have it down to a science now. Patio is expanded with heaters everywhere. Felt very safe and distanced from others. Food was excellent quality as always. Highly recommend the yellowtail with jalapeños and the brussel sprouts.
