We had a great night! Our server was very sweet, the atmosphere was awesome, and the food was amazing. I had the Kona Poke Roll and oh my goodness, it was perfect! That paired with the cucumber drink made my night.

Last weekend before school started. Wanted to have some good sushi. Restaurant VERY crowded. We were squeezed between two large parties. Had to ask several times for flatware. Drink refills very slow. Never got asked if I wanted another cocktail. Food was good but not worth the price paid for it. Music and noise level very loud. Average dining experience. Won’t be rushing back.

I was told that there would be a 45 minute wait after my reservation time before I would be able to be seated. I told them to cancel my reservation when magically they found a table. Then we waited and waited and finally we were approached by a server, we asked for water and my wife ordered a cocktail. We never received our water, my 4 year old was begging us for water, we asked the server she assured us she would get water, needless to say we were sat for an hour before my daughter got a kids cup of water. This is 25 minutes after receiving our food, which arrived before anything to eat it with did. We had to ask for utensils. The service at this restaurant is extremely poor. The food is pretty good. But the experience, from the first step through the door and the slovenly nonchalant way the hosts are to the lack of basic staging of a meal, to the overall attitude and demeanor of the staff and the lack of care and attention paid. For a high priced restaurant it’s not worth it. I won’t be returning.

The tomato soup was served at room temperature with soggy croutons. The sliders were tasty but served at room temperature and the fries were simply cold. Cold fries are the worst! The dessert was good. We sat without eating utensils for a while. Refills on water was not the norm. Hence the overall experience was just fair. On a positive note our waitress was cordial. The ambiance was warm, welcoming, and a nice place to hang out if you are not concern about eating a hot meal in a timely fashion.

Date night special was good, meatballs were very tasty, but were over done for our tastes. The 12 oz rib eye was flavorful but a little on the tough side. The Korean spiced ribs were tasty but again they were over cooked and dry.

Upon entering the restaurant a sharp edge on the front door caught my toe. My toenail was ripped off and my toe was sliced open in 2 places. I was in pain and limped to our table. I was given a bandaid and alcohol wipe, when I asked for them, but no one seemed at all concerned that I was bleeding everywhere. The manager stopped by at some point to ask how everything was, and we told him about the door. He said, “hmmm, I may need to take a picture of that”, and then we never saw him the rest of the evening. Not a single follow up to see if I was okay.

We were seated outdoor at a fire pit, which was a little awkward because the table was super low and hard to eat. There was also no easy place to put the appetizers. We worked around this, but would have preferred an actual table. The table was not well cleaned and completely overrun with ants.

Our server was very sweet, but completely overwhelmed. Our appetizer came out after we were already eating our meal. We had to request silverware several times, and even then not enough was brought for our party. My husband requested a napkin, since he was never brought silverware, and was given a small beverage napkin.

The food itself was excellent. A bit on the pricey side, but really flavorful. Overall we left disappointed as we expect better service when we spend $200+ for a family dinner out.

We were a party of 6 with a reservation. We were seated outside
It was hot and muggy with occasional showers. We asked if there were fans and told no. Our server Gabe was nice. But was inattentive to say the least. A round of drinks took more than 30 minutes. We ordered 3 appetizers and two came in a reasonable amount of time. The 3rd app had to be asked for repeatedly. We had to ask for silverware & napkins after apps arrived. Hot food came out cool and cold food was room temp

I do not understand how food has been made, but every bite must be in Michelin list.

Even though it was crowded and noisy, but still very well organized.

The sushi was ok but the crab cakes were overcooked and tough and not served hot.
The restaurant was noisy so we sat outside but they had the misters on so it sprayed what felt like dirty water constantly over my table and me. Didn't do much for my hairdo!
