Love the place
I have had lunch here numerous times and it’s been good. This was the first time with the whole family for dinner and I was pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent. We had sushi, flatbread, macadamia nut chicken, and steak chuchurra (?). Everyone was happy with their choices and it was all gone at the end of the meal. The desserts were very large and not quite as good as the main courses. Overall a great experience and I would recommend you give it a try.
Great food, Interesting menu options, Meh service
On Friday, January 12, I had a reservation with friends (total of 6, including 2 "almost teen" boys) at 7:45PM. My companion and I arrived a little early and were pleasantly surprised to find that the table was ready! What a great start!
The ambiance was lively, but with a significant amount of background noise. For our party though, it was okay.
We were seated and the menus distributed. The other 3 (one couldn't come because of an illness) were running late so my companion and I ordered an appetizer (smoked gouda fondue with pretzel bites and apple slices) and some wine while we waited. The wine came and was poured into our glasses without being offered the usual wine tasting ritual (you know the routine...show the wine, present the cork. pour a little, etc. etc.). Because I knew the wine we selected, I didn't think it was a big deal, just unusual.
The appetizer was good (the pre-teens loved it when they arrived) but a little light on the apple slices with a preponderance lot of pretzels bites.
My companion and I shared the kona churrasco - a great dish to share. The other had a variety of dishes including pad thai and the kona chopped salad. Everyone enjoyed the entree and agreed the food was great. For dessert, the adults shared a passion fruit crème brulee. Also, very good with a perfectly prepared sugar crust and 3 berries to accent the tangy custard. YUM.
The service was ok... Meh. The server was not engaging, but not rude either. She paid us the minimal amount of attention necessary to make sure the order was taken and the food delivered but didn't engage us and didn't really establish the type of interaction that good servers can do naturally. It may have been we had a late reservation and the crowd had started to thin out by the time we all got there.
We will go back again for the food and the interesting menu and hope for a server who is a bit more engaged with the guests.
The ambiance was lacking. The food was just okay. We all had sushi but I’ve had better from the grocery store. Service was good. The bathroom had a terrible smell. My group and I all decided we won’t go back.
New Years evr
Went on New Years Eve, which was a Sunday when they had happy hour all day long in the patio/bar area. Used a gift card that we received for Christmas, so it was a great value. Food was good and service was exceptional. The patio/bar area seating has been modified to accommodate more tables.
Quite annoyed hostess seated us by the front door on one of the coldest nights when there were tables available away from the door. Our server was gracious enough to move us to another table in the dining room. He was attentive until the end when we wanted to pay the bill to leave.
excellent food, plenty of room in the dining area. Friendly, immediate greeting when we walked in. Server was upbeat, knowledgeable of the dishes, checked on us frequently, but not pesty. while it was a relaxing evening, and we were not rushed, the only complaint I have is that the Kitchen must have been having some issues as it took a significant amount of time to be served our dinner. We only had salads and a noodle dish, and after ordering it took nearly an hour after our appetizer was served for the dinner to arrive.
I expected more of this place. The sushi was mediocre, the service was OK and the atmosphere was nothing special. I was surprised by the Rap music that was played at 10pm (not that I mind Rap music, just surprised by it in this type of restaurant).
Service was horrible and the restaurant was empty. Also a few things they were already out of when we ordered our food.
