Great as always. Chef Luis's Beef Poke special needs to be a mainstay. Well done Chef!

The menu is exciting, but the execution is mixed. We loved the dumplings, but the tempura avocado and bacon was a real let-down. Mostly cauliflower! And the tempura batter was hardly cooked. It all arrived tepid. We ordered afffogato for dessert (espresso over ice cream), and what should have been a nice strong espresso was watery coffee. At these prices, such culinary failures should not happen. On a happy note, the servers were great.

I LOVE this place- small, friendly, amazingly flavorful food. And a wonderful musician on Wednesday evenings. A neighborhood gem in an unlikely strip mall!

The menu choices were varied and unique. Service was excellent. Presentation was outstanding. Portions were good. Every item we ordered was delicious! Overall really exceeded expectations. There was also a decent wine list which we took advantage of. Parking in the lot was limited (there may be street parking nearby). We had a great evening. Definitely recommend.

The food was delightful. Black cod and delicate squash cooked to perfection. The strip mall location was a little off-putting at first, but the ambiance inside was very nice.

Very nice restaurant located in a small strip mall. Not a very overwhelming look from the outside, but the food did not disappoint. We had the of the shareable small plates and that was plenty for a meal. The menu is large and diverse with certainly and Asian flare. We plan to go back and explore the menu further.

The Pork Belly ramen bowl had layers and layers of flavor. From the broth to the very fresh veggies. Hubby had the crab and poke bowl, with crispy fried softshell crab. His too was full of terrific flavors. Great martinis too!

Two of our rib orders were a bit dr, normally I leave in awe of the food, this time it was ok, therefore, too pricey for what I had. The place is great.

Always love Dojo! And appreciate that they gave us the Happy Hour menu even though we had to sit in the main dining because of our group size :) They didnt used to let you order off of it unless you were sitting in the bar.

I eat out more often than I’d like to admit. My daughter has quite a knack for cooking and taste for flavors, more so than I. I thought she might like to try the Asian fusion flare. It’s a quaint little place and I enjoyed the service, Chelsea was wonderful. The prices were a bit more than other restaurants I’ve been too for the quality and the a la carte faire. I don’t think my 8pz filet mignon for $40 was worth it, let alone it was butterflied to be cooked properly. A more experienced chef would not have hd to butterfly it and dried it out. Had I known it would have been butterflies I would have ordered it medium not medium well as I asked for little pink because I thought it was going to be full mignon shape. I even described that to the server, as I didn’t want medium too pink. Same for $16 coconut prawns, they were not jumbo size. Overall, the food was good. I’m more complaining about a $132 dollar bill (see the 8 photos - cropped together) that I don’t believe portion size was deserving. I could have been to another restaurant and received same quality food and service for lesser fare. Again, I eat out a lot and restaurant menu wasn’t that unique for what I ate, maybe for the area but not for my experience. My daughters items were right on point, cost and portion.

We used to be regulars at this charming little place. Then we moved to another state, and haven't been back since we moved home. Chose Bar Dojo to host my visiting family the first time they came to see our new house, and could not have been more pleased with the experience. Great service, creative and diverse menu, delicious dishes -- terrific experience overall.

We had a wonderful Birthday/Holiday dinner with our dear friends! This was our second time we took our celebration to Bar Dojo and it was as great as we remembered. We were very happy to get the cozy round table which provided a quieter and more private ambience.
The service was impeccable and cheerful, even on a busy night. Chelsea was our server both years, and she brought her fun spirit to the celebration, as well as her professionalism.
And the food! We loved the appetizers (pot stickers, short rib nachos, calamari, tempura bacon/avocado, and coconut prawns). We barely had room for entrees, but we made a gallant effort!
We hope to be back next year for the same great celebration!!!
