They recently changed the menu and the selections were limited and the food not up to their usual standard. The noodle dishes were supposed to have meat in them and the dishes were very small with almost no meat. The food in general was greasy and unappealing. It seems as though they have changed their focus from food to drink. On a Saturday night at 8:00 pm, the restaurant was half empty. Not a good sign.

Would have enjoyed a glass of hibiki harmony which they added the word pure to it but that was 20 a shot for a $60 bottle.

Everyone decided to go with grilling menu which was fun if you don't mind cooking your own food. The servers were friendly and knowledgeable - I don't think there was ever an unwanted empty glass at the table. The only let down for me was the limited dessert menu.

Right off the bat the ambiance and decor was amazing. The service was very team oriented. The food was great, portions were on the smaller side, but price was fair I think. Will def. Return with friends.

The. Bar área was the nicest areas at the small seated area. The bartender was friendly and knew his merchandise. We then moved to restaurant for dinner. The booths were cold, hard and uncomfortable. The portion sizes were minuscule, food was nothing special. The waiter had no information and couldn’t answer any of my questions. The dessert menu was ridiculous, every item was served with a soft serve “Dairy Queen like ice cream.” The whole experience was a huge disappointment!!!!

Valet offered to keep car until after concert which was a cost savings and provided a refreshing about five block walk to venue (big crowd walking back in same direction after concert). Host anticipated people going to concert and directed people quickly with utmost care and friendliness. Sat in bar for happy hour and stayed in comfy chairs for dinner. Don’t miss the sticky chicken wings and dumplings! Bartenders evening choice of beverage was a blood orange negroni...instant relaxation and refreshment. Tea Smoked Duck Bolo Noodle dish was on the small side but the sauce was exciting. Definitely revisit worthy.

We ordered several different dishes. Some were great and others were just ok. Portions were a little too small. Service was great. Will try again.

The food was just as great as I remember, however the pacing was off. We ordered a rice dish that came ~20 minutes after every other dish and we were full by that time. It was a bit more noisy then I remember, and at times we didn't see our waitress (she must have been tied up with the big derby party)

The chef is outstanding creating a fusion of culture. The ambiance is perfect for any occasion and the staff is exceptional. We particularly loved meeting the Catering Director, Loren Hall. She has an incredible spirit and is so welcoming. She gave us many ideas of what to order and every one of her suggestions were outstanding.
