Food and service are excellent!

Value is good, except for the wine and the cauliflower dish. Cauliflower is very good, but $17 is very high for this dish. The wine by the glass options are limited and not anything special, so $16 a glass seemed high.

Great place!

Outstanding an unique food. We ate in a closed booth on the sidewalk (June 21; end of pandemic). Fantastically crafted dishes with attentive and professional service.

The food, as always, was delicious. The service not so much. We appreciate the 2 hour limit, but we were quite rudely informed that they were "concerned" about our table because we hadn't left yet (we had literally just paid and still had 15 minutes left on the clock). If you need your guests to leave, I am sure there are other more polite and friendly ways of letting them know instead of rudely telling them that you are "concerned". Or tell them that they have 1 hour and 45 minutes instead of 2 hours.

First time and I brought someone from out of town. I felt the pressure to find an impressive restaurant. Did not disappoint. Food was AMAZING. Service was impeccable.Highly recommend the mushroom salad, cauliflower, and octopus. Each dish had so many layers of interesting flavors. I will be back!!!

we read the excellent reviews and were not disappointed. Excellent food and top notch service. The wait staff couldn’t be nicer especially considering they had to run through the rain to bring us our food. their outdoor pods were perfect on a cold rainy day... Would definitely recommend.

The food and service were great, but the outdoor dining in this hot weather is a disaster. Sitting inside the little room is like sitting in a sauna room...and you would need to drink lots of water to stay hydrated

One of the best dinners we’ve had in a while. Every course we ordered was absolutely delicious. It’s family style meals so you get to try a plethora of the menu. Not one meal disappointed.

The servers at this restaurant were excellent. The food was tasty, but overpriced for the portions. Two lamb chops were $58! I would recommend this place for 2 people but not groups. The portions are too small to share in groups (you would only get a little bite of each dish) and we ordered more than the amount that came recommended for our number.

The food was so good!! Much more fun and delicious and upscale than I last remembered.

Their bone marrow amazing. Wagyu special amazing. Lamb special amazing. Mushroom salad amazing. Oiji bowl very good but room for improvement (serving in proper sized bowl, ingredients going back to ebi instead of prawn)

We LOVED our food here! the next night I dined at The Fulton and honestly we ate better here: the noodle dish was even "a copy". My "gourmet" friends were very satisfied, everything had wonderful forward thinking flavors. The interior is elegant however due to the small size and being near the bar the cocktail shaker was a constant noise in our experience. The server seemed a bit "put upon" but I guess they are all that way now with covid. We surely recommend and be back.

The food is unlike the food at any other restaurant. The freshness and quality set a very high bar. Not only are the dishes inventive, they actually work! The service is friendly and relaxed but highly efficient. This is one of our go-to restaurants and we are never disappointed, always thrilled.
