Been here many times... this was the first time that the service was waaay below reasonable expectations. It was most likely an anomaly.
We were seated in the newer back room at a high top by bar. Although much quieter, it was cold and not as nice as sitting in the main room. The sushi was just as good. I’d prefer not sitting back there again unless I’m with a large group in the front new area.
Generally good food. Decent wine selection. Fun atmosphere.
Thank you for the special bday dessert!
Consistently excellent! Brought some friends there tonight that had never eaten here before...they LIVE it too 😁
Went here the first time for my birthday based on pretty good reviews here and elsewhere. Got a perfectly terrible table next to the hostess stand & door which opened and closed 100 times letting the frigid air wash through the restaurant. To be fair though we watched another group switch tables 2X so ours was not the only bad table - just the worst. Probably 25-30% of the restaurant and bar would be considered fair to bad by that measure. Service was utilitarian. Prompt and certainly competent but kind of disinterested at the same time. Ask if there are specials and or specialties as they are not offered and you may get a mechanical description. We asked that the hot entrees come last and were told probably not since the sushi bar is busy and usually falls behind - kind of surprising for a sushi restaurant but turned out to be correct. Food was generally pretty good but nothing was outstanding. Despite its mediocrity on that night, probably still one of the better sushi places we have found in the suburbs from an actual sushi quality perspective. I would suggest refusing any table near the door, which I noticed several other groups do, try going later (place was pretty well cleared out by 9:00), or sit at the bar or sushi bar.
Once again we went there on a Friday night, good energy, happy crowd. Love the spicy squid salad, yum. We tried the Kicker and the Piccadilly and they were a nice combo. The drinks get pricy but so worth all of it.
Slow service that night
Celebrated New Years with great food and atmosphere
