We got in early and went to the bar to grab a drink and were seated immediately after. We did not feel crowded even for New Years eve, the chef was excellent and very quick to the table and the food was amazing. We 100% recommend them to anyone!

I even got up to ask the front hosts that my original plans were not met. I asked for a cake. Nothing. The waitress was then told before we got up to leave that it was my son's bday by somebody else in our party. It made it look like I did nothing to surprise my son when I did try two times. It was a dissapointing moment. We frequent this restaurant often. I will never go back. I felt ignored on purpose. Every table around us got the mascot and their cake. I just don't understand why my request was ignore twice!

The food was good, but our server disappeared frequently. making it very hard to even get a soy sauce for our sushi. They charged extra to substitute tofu for a shrimp dish which was astonishing to me as tofu and shrimp are not quite the same monetary amount. Even after leaving the restaurant, I still do not believe we were credited with our OpenTable points because she was so snippy.

Our teriyaki dinners though were just ok. First off, we doubt the filet mignon was actually filet mignon. They did not have much flavor nor were they served with any teriyaki sauce. Our server had zero personality and I felt like she was annoyed having to wait on us. It was not a good dining experience overall, I wouldn’t recommend going here.
