We had several courses that were all good but the timing was very rushed as everything came out within minutes of each other and we were in and out of the restaurant within 30 minutes. We felt very rushed although we enjoyed our meal. The restaurant was very busy so they needed to move tables quickly.

Anniversary dinner with friends was simply amazing! We had an 11 year old in our party but there was plenty of food choices and he really liked the salmon on the hot rock.

We were seated promptly and our server was helpful with recommendations. We were a party of 3 and ordered 8 dishes. The kitchen was fast -which we loved since we were tired and hungry after a day on the slopes. All the dishes were great. The mushroom salad had a bit of a strange citrus dressing (maybe missing miso) on it that didn’t quite go with the dish, but the quality of the earthy mushrooms was good so we ate it anyway.

Very nice menu of sushi, including old standards and new creations. Fish was fresh and presented well. I had the sunomonu salad with sashimi, which I did not love. Generally this salad is grated cucumber rather that chunks and the flavors didn't blend particularly well for me. A main of sea bass, all the rolls, the braised bok choy and roasted Brussels were enjoyed by all.

Lovely decor. Well presented food Perhaps sometimes a little too much complexity in the rolls making flavours indistinct. A little pricey perhaps.

Responded on January 24, 2020

Thank you so much for joining us for dinner. We're very happy to hear that you enjoyed your food. I apologize that the DJ did not enhance the experience of your dinner. Just so you are aware, that is not something that we normally do. There are a couple nights a year that we bring in a DJ for dinner service, and this happened to be the night you dined with us. We hope that you join us again, when we don't have a DJ.

Food was good but It was very overpriced for sushi- we were a table of four and our server Karen was suddenly brusque and impatient once she learned we were not paying the $150/per person reservation fee (and our bill was not going to be $600) instead our bill was 350!!
