Made a last minute after work reservation for a Wednesday at 6:pm. I'm really glad that I did. My girlfriend and I arrived at 6 sharp and the place wasn't crowded, but that changed quickly. This is a hot spot and fills up quickly. Live DJ was doing his thing when we arrived and music was good. Scored an outside table. Very pretty staff that is quite accommodating. We ordered several small plates of appetizers which were all very good. Happy hour specials are offered and are different depending on the day you are there, but fun choices. I highly recommend, just make sure you reserve a table and don't just show up expecting to be seated.

Kimoto stopped using open table around the same time i put in the reservation. No one called out inform me of this. When i called right before the reservation they had no record of the reservation, but yet i had the confirmation number and the reminders. They barley accomadated us. Some of my guest were still standing and when they sat down at a table for a quick second because one waitress said that they could another waitresses was kinda aggressive in telling my guest to get up. I will never have a party there again. But otherwise the bottle service and food was great.

Great place that may need more staff to cover a busy night.
The food was delicious and came out pretty quickly. The drinks were tasty. I just wish I knew they did hookah before going. That should be included in all their ads so people know.

I Enjoyed the evening with family and friends, the only thing I didn't like was that they couldn't find my reservation confirmation, but we were given a table. The music was also a bit too loud but everything else was excellent. I will definitely visit this restaurant again.

The rooftop is pretty, food and drinks are good but the service needs a lot of work. The waitress never even came back to give us the check; we had to get it from the manager. We thought she left until we saw her come back to the table next to us.

The inside is nice. Nice lighting and some good music BUT the food didn’t taste fresh and wasn’t hot when it came to my partner and I. We ordered drinks that didn’t taste like anything it said it had in it and the hookah was so harsh my partner and I couldn’t even smoke it. We paid extra for the ice pipe just for it to go to waste. On top of that we paid a service charge and not one time did our waitress come check on us. The only time a waitress came to us is when our original waitress shift ended and she was taking over. We had to look for her to get our bill because she never came back to check if everything was ok. I’ll never go back there. It was a waste of $120 for just wings, fries, 2 non tasting drinks and harsh hookah that couldn’t even be used. Oh and keep in mind my partner and I shared the wings and fries because we just wanted an appetizer. It wasn’t 2 separate orders. I was highly UNSATISFIED especially because we went on a Tuesday and not a weekend. Everything should have been good nothing should have been rushed or anything because it was empty !!!

Been here before and loved it which is why I came back. Unfortunately, this time was a disaster! If you're hosting an event please let your customers know when they're booking and give them the option of deciding whether they want to be apart of that. There was an event taking place and we were seated all the way to the back. Service was horrible! Took half an hour to get drinks! And food took even longer to come. Very disappointed.

I love coming here. The food, drinks, ambiance are amazing. It was my first time eating sushi here and I must say the ingredients were fresh and tasty BUT WAY TOO MUCH RICE. The rolls were huge not in a good way. Next time I will stick to their apps and finger food which never disappoints.

First time here and didn’t do much research on the kind of spot it is. Went with a friend for what we’d hoped was a quiet dinner spot and it felt more like a loung/bar/nightclub. Music was WAY too loud to have a good conversation. Food was good, though a bit overpriced, and service was pretty attentive.

We had reserved a table outside but with the rain, they had to move us inside, so caveat...

Visited with my family on a Friday, early evening (another caveat) and the food was solid but the service was spotty and the ambience was miserable - incredibly loud (between people that were drunk way early in the evening and the music played by a bad DJ on blown speakers). Caveats in play as I should’ve known better than to bring my family on a Friday evening to a rooftop BAR and grill.

Service was horrible. Didn’t get seated at a table with chairs initially (yes, you read right). Then didn’t get our drinks until welllllllll after our food arrived. Waitress didn’t check on us for 30 to 45 minutes at a time. It was the worst service ever.

This place is much more of a bar then a restaurant. The music was so loud you had to shout to
hear the person next to you. Very young crowd. If you are looking for a dinner with friends and conversation, this is not the place.

I think this place had a nice vibe, but the service was extremely weak. I read that gratuity was included in other reviews, so I didn't expect outstanding service, but it was even worse than that. I had to ask at least four different members of the wait staff for things during my dinner because our original server never came back. She walked passed us multiple times very quickly, but never stopped to actually check in. It was actually kind of weird. Overall, the hookah and the vibes make this place. Oh and the sushi, that was actually pretty good!

After reading the reviews, we were very excited to celebrate a birthday. We had reservations and we were running late. I called and was told it wasn't a problem. When got there, we were "scolded" by the hostess who told us they had to give up our table. We were told all they had was "couch seating." If you are hanging out with a group, this is a great option. For an intimate dinner, not so much. We waited 30 minutes and finally got a bus boy to take our drink order. Someone came to take our food order and we were told they had 2 people on that night. I counted 6, but it was hard to tell exactly what their roles were.The adjacent tables were visited several times by a server during this period. The food was just ok. It was not "inspired" "fusion" or "innovative." Most of the items are the same as what one could find at a local Asian market in the frozen section. We took a walk to see the view from the outdoor deck. It was nothing spectacular. This place is a hotel rooftop bar with basic food. Nothing special and very disappointing after the description and reviews in multiple places.

Very disappointed after 15 minutes to get seated on a couch, 30 minutes to make an order and another 30 minutes to get the food. The staff was short, lost and unprepared to the demand. By the way, I had a reservation.
