Overall a thoroughly unspecial/mediocre evening. As it was our first visit, we asked the server for suggestions. We went there for sushi, and wound up steered toward several hot and cold dishes before getting to sushi. Rock lobster tempura was fantastic. Black cod was sweet enough to be dessert. The sushi was the best part, as expected, however because we were dissuaded from sticking to the sushi menu, we weren't able to enjoy it as much.
Super loud environment, which would be fine if you weren't trying to talk over the person seated next to you; which was akin to subway seating proximity. Skip the brand name and go somewhere that focuses on quality.
A terrific letdown for an engagement/birthday celebration.
