Great place with fantastic service and food! The cocktail with the mezcal (the name escapes me) is great! And don't get me started on the Shrimp Bun! That is my all time favorite!! Highly recommend this restaurant!

My girlfriend and I wanted to try a new place for date night! Bite’s was perfect! The portions were perfect for sharing, the maki was incredible, and the service was top notch. Definitely have already recommended it to friends and plan to head back soon.

Good food and service! The five spices “ramen” was delicious. It tasted nothing like a Japanese ramen obviously but it was different.

Beautiful space. Friendly staff. Food was amazing! The happy hour specials were great! Sake bombs only $3! we had the spicy crab rangoons, shrimp tempura bao, General Tso’s chicken sandwich, all were amazing. Food presentation was beautiful.

Things I wish I would have known: Taro fries were not Traditional french fries but more like crunchy potato sticks. The sangria was not sweet. But still very good

This was a fantastic discovery! From the ability to make a reservation, the location and parking available on the street, the ambiance, the kindness of the service staff, the excellent food and drink options, the deliciousness of both food and cocktails, everything. It was a win all around and we'll definitely be back!

The menu was very expansive and had a ton that I wanted to try. Our drinks and food were very good, but the service wasn’t great. It took quite a long time for our drinks, with no sight of our server until they came out. Had asked for water refills before our food came out and never got it until they brought our check and I had to ask again! I had a spicy meal and really could have used the water. The ambiance and setup for spacing worked really well together. Will definitely go back to try more menu items, just need to make sure I am not in a hurry.

Food was great! Only thing was the busboys/servers kept rushing us to take our plates when we weren’t quite finished. Happened 2-3 times and it was frustrating

The drinks were really good but the service was horrendous. We were there for over two hours, had to ask for our waiter every time and never got drink refills nor had the time to order our full meal.

Had a reservation for 6pm, the waiter did not take our order until 6:25 and they had ran out of a few things from the menu. The food was good but very disappointed on the service.

Food was delicious, servers were friendly, food came out in a timely manner, and the ambiance of the outdoor patio was really nice. The only thing that was awkward is that the two person tables on the outdoor patio are very small! And since the ground is uneven, our table was wobbly and one of the drinks spilled a little. But that was minor, the overall experience was great.

We waited 55 minutes for our drinks and even longer for appetizer. Food was good but the wait was unacceptable. Then a rat ran underneath our table.
