    Everything was delicious. Tempura shrimp, house salad, sushi & crispy brussel sprouts, yum! Ambiance was very nice although the music got to me after awhile but my husband loved it (new age). Sound was at a reasonable level so able to carry on a conversation. Wonderful dinner out. Waitress was very pleasant and attentive. Staff was very friendly.

    High end quality sushi. Well prepared sushi rice. Basic sushi and maki rolls that are made outstandingly. It doesn’t try to be too excessive in their combinations like so many places do. Also holds back on the heavy mayonnaise mixes.

    I expected more having heard the name so many times as one of the best sushi places. The food was really delicious! Why I probably wouldn't go back or recommend it was because of the service and how dark it was. The hostess was borderline rude - greeted us with a grunt and walked us to the table looking miserable. Then when we sat down we both literally had to use our phones to see the menu. My son is 19 so it wasn't my old eyes. Even the pretend candles on the table weren't enough to hold up to the menu to see it. Our waitress was very sweet but busy. The encore was when the different waitress/hostess person who gave us the check was sarcastic and just kind-of mean. We couldn't figure it out. Either just a really dry sense of humor that didn't come across as humor or somehow our existence offended her. We hadn't spoken two words except to ask for the check and I forget what she said but both my son and I looked at each other and said "what was that?!?!" No clue but probably won't ask them to do me any favors and host us again.

    I would recommend Blue Ribbon however there wasn’t really anything about the menu that jumped out at me. For how highly ranked it was, I was expecting more creativity/ flair. I appreciated how fresh the food was and that it was high quality. I made a reservation and they put me in the back room where there was nobody else seated which was not ideal for an upbeat, lively restaurant. We would have much rather been a part of the action and I thought they should put the walk in people there over the people who has reserved well in advance. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience and a bit over priced for a standard dishes.

    Whereas we loved the food, I was shocked at the final bill which I found to be astronomical. I didn’t appreciate the waiter pushing an omikase experience that wasn’t even in the menu and thus, couldn’t have been aware of the price. The end result was almost double the price of their highest priced item on the menu. I would have appreciated the heads up and less insistence and pressure on selecting a route that ended up ruining the experience. I will certainly make everyone aware and personally will not go back. Buyer beware!
