    The cocktails are impressive. Tried the classic cloud 9 and espresso martini to start- very good. Loved the presentation of the cloud 9- Poured over at the table over cotton candy. The vibe- Semi off putting though to have menu as QR code and then we had to self check out on our phones and pay the bill. I just feel like this place is on the verge of greatness- right now it’s just ok but with a few minor tweaks it could be great. If I’m doing all the work on my phone to order and pay- this is not greatness folks. The food- $28 for buffalo chicken. It was yummy, essentially tempura chicken thigh bites- wayyyy too shy on the buffalo sauce. Ranch was superb but the dipping sauce should not be the star of the show. As stated above a small change like more buffalo sauce could take this dish from good to great- not worth $28 Street noodles- loved the big, homemade style noodles but the sauce and flavor was disappointing. Heavy on the sesame and peanut butter the sprouts were my favorite part for the watery crunch. Also the chili oil served with it- the cumin added I found overwhelming. I want my chili oil to be spicy chili oil not a blast of a dry Mexican spice taking over all other flavors. Salmon sando-yaki- this concept is great, the execution left me wanting more. The “sauce” or whatever squash chutney served with it was interesting but could’ve been done better. I wanted something more dip-able vs a chunky kind of strange texture. Something was missing from the filling maybe green onions or a gooey melty cheese could take it a grilled cheese level. The bread was my favorite part… it should be about the sauce and the filling not the bread. We also had an Envy cocktail- if you like mezcal, spicy, Smokey flavor profiles- it was perfection, the lingering taste of honey dew melon slaps. But again… the drink shouldn’t be my favorite thing of the night. Elevate a bit more.

    Food was great, service was not. Our server was scarce and took a long time to take our drink orders. We saw more of the other server working than we did our own. The food was delicious, but we almost left in the beginning because of how negligent our server was.

    Mocktail with matcha was really good, the quality of the food was great, but taste-wise for me it was not particularly impressive. The lighting was also a little too dim - the food looked good but you'd want your guests to see them better! The server was very nice, always addressed guests with a smile, and took the time to explain the menu.

    My boyfriend had walked by and wanted to try it, so I took him out to celebrate his promotion. First red flag was the fake plants and fake candles everywhere, it just felt cheap inside. We ordered the squash soup (boring, wrong texture), lotus chips (totally unseasoned), duck wontons (bland but perhaps the best thing?), mussels (absolutely doused in garlic, but nothing else), and sticky rice risotto. The sticky rice risotto is when I simply put my fork down, it was like eating mushy rice pilaf from a box. The only redeeming thing I can say is that our server was fine, and my boyfriend enjoyed his cocktail. I'm not one to write restaurant reviews at all, but I was so disappointed by our experience here on a celebratory night.

    Three of us in our party enjoyed 4 shareable plates and my husband ate most of the jaegerschnitzel himself and that was the largest plate! Food was fabulous, a bit pricy, but worth it. The drink menu was excellent as well. Enjoyed the atmosphere, highly recommend!

    I brought my mom here for a special dinner and it was a wonderful experience! The food was tasty and perfect proportion to share! The mock tails AND cocktails were delicious, but the best part of dinner was the dessert of apple pie with jasmine ice cream. Loved the experience and will definitely be coming back!

    This Asian fusion restaurant was a pleasant surprise. We had plans to go dancing in central square and needed a place for dinner that was healthy, delicious, and walking distance from the square. As a ten minute walk this place fit our requirements and we ordered three "small plates" of delicious food: hamachi crudo, arancini and the southern fried chicken dish. The arancini in particular was a real standout.

    First the positive: the drinks were AMAZING! The K-Pop in particular was delicious. The food was bland, unimaginative (nearly everything was served on a bed of raw, unseasoned spinach) and odd. The fried chicken was wonderfully crispy, but had NO flavor! No garlic, no paprika, no onion, no seasoning salt. It tasted like it was just a dash of salt and a bit of pepper. The Caprese Spring Roll and the meatballs were unappetizing at best. The arincini balls were slightly better, but not enough to bring me back. The music turned off shortly after we arrived, so it really made the restaurant feel empty (it was quite empty of people). I really wanted to love this place!

    Our server was great — truly attentive— and we loved all the food. The wagyu meatballs might have been the least exciting, but that’s really because I didn’t catch that they come in a coconut milk bath. We will be back over and over again.

    The food was amazing. The crudo, duck wontons and croquettes were fabulous. I would definitely go back for those. The fried chicken was meh...too much bread and not much flavor. A definite outlier compared to the other menu items we had. I would go back to try some of the other menu items.
