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.

Went for early seating on New Year’s with my wife and my one year old. We ordered right away (2 apps and 2 rolls). 1st app of pork dumplings way very good. 2nd app of pork scewers was glorified meatballs, just okay. Then we waiting 40 minutes (after finishing our apps) to get our 2 rolls! Waiter apologized only after we asked what was going on 30 minutes in). Explained that they got hit a lot of big with to-go orders. First off, we ordered 2 rolls, that should take all of 3 minutes to make. Second, why would you put seated guests behind a to-go order when we ordered before them! We’ll probably go back (when it’s not a holiday), but was disappointed because of the long wait for food (thank god our 1 year old was being so good the whole time, or this could be a worse review).

I don’t know if it was because it was New Years Eve and they were making several platters for parties, but the time in receiving your food was long! The Sashimi slices were too big. The amount of fish was ok but hey should cut it so you can eat it in one bite.

There were so many kids there- it was very unexpected for New Years. Nearly every table around us had children- not a place for a date without children on New Year’s Eve at all! Oh well. The food was still good, although we had to hear a dad yell at his kid for not knowing how to lace her shoes correctly and zipper her jacket, it was ok. Next time we will find a more date appropriate place, or sit in the bar area, which seemed for appropriate for us, but we didn’t know this beforehand.
