As a frequent diner here, I continue to try new things. Tried their spicy calamari but had them omit the "spicy" part, so it was basically grilled calamari. You can get it with or without mushrooms and/or broccoli, and you can choose "rings only" or the normal combination of rings and tentacles. Absolutely delicious - and a very generous serving.

We have been dining here for years. Love the food and Mia. She always remembers us. The dynamite is our favorite. It is getting a bit smaller though and that we don't like.

This has been a weekly stop for us for several years now, and we see no reason to interrupt that schedule. Food is great - fresh, plentiful, elegantly presented, and the service is always - always - top notch.

Maybe it was just bad timing when we went...
But there were a couple of very rowdy older gentleman at the bar.
They were very loud and swearing.
Normally I wouldn’t blame the restaurant for this, however by the time that we left they were doing shots and screaming with the sushi chefs!

Have always had superior food AND service. All servers were Covid protected, unfortunately a lot of the patrons didn’t.
Excellent drinks and we were unaware that you can also order from there sister resturant next door which makes for most interesting dining experience.

The normally expected and always provided service and food was great. I've started enhancing my meal with some of the offerings from their Mexican food counterpart immediately next door. Wow! A great confluence of cuisines.
