I ordered a flatbread that came out in less than 10 mins & wasn’t even room temperature, so disappointed. And it was all dark meat chicken. The bbq sauce had great flavor though.

Our party of 3 sat outside on their covered patio area under pretty patio lights. For a Wednesday evening, it was fairly busy. The service was prompt and the staff very friendly. They were all masked, although our server’s mask kept slipping down.
We shared various sushi rolls-spider, crab crunch, tuna and veggie. All were very good, however, the veggie role was too big to be eaten in one bite, making it a little awkward. We did have to ask for wasabi, as none of the rolls were served with it. We didn’t feel rushed, and enjoyed how quiet and comfortable their patio seating is. We will go back soon before the weather turns cold.

Worst waitress ever!! Took the order for drinks, she didn't return to take our food order until an hour later. The food order was wrong, there was no offer to fix it. Waitress got annoyed and rolled her eyes when we asked for the sauces that were requested with the meal when it was ordered.

The quality of the food did not match the price in my opinion. My friends food sat in the kitchen because someone forgot to bring it out with her sushi, by the time she got it the rice was dried out, the roasted brussel sprouts were tough and all u got was a bitter after taste. Now the manager did come over and apologized for the mishap and removed the meal from her ticket. Overall thu the price of the food did not match the quality. Our server was great and very helpful and friendly.
