We go to the Drunken Fish because it is close by , the food is good and the special deals are better. We like lunch there. The service was different, Jason was forgetful and laughed a lot, there were out of control children who screamed through the entire meal...not so good

We were seated next to the kitchen. It was very loud & narrow walkway next to our table with lots of traffic. Will request to sit on a different part of the restaurant next time.

I never really have any problems but this time the rice was REALLY burned.. the after taste was horrible.. I the waitress that the rice was burnt and she offered a bowl of ice cream.. that was strange.. when I rejected the ice cream she just brought the check like she never heard me say that the rice was badly burned..

Service was good,we had an appointment, so the food was brought fairly quickly. BLT roll was ok, bacon a bit undercooked. Lobster spring roll was sparse on lobster,more cream cheese than lobster. Somewhat disappointing. Side dishes of spinach and asparagus were fine. Seemed restaurant was busy with a younger crowd. Portions were adequate. Will consider going back for another experience.

The service was wonderful. Our server was prompt and very nice. The food was amazing, as always. It was just so incredibly loud that you felt like you had to yell when talking to be heard. That kinda ruined the mood.

The food was good. Our server (guy with glasses, don't remember his name) did not bother to tell us before we ordered that their system was not accepting their gift cards because they were switching to a new system. He only told us after we put the gift cards in the check holder. I explained to him that he should have mentioned this important detail when we first sat down. I said, "What if we had $150 in gift cards and decided to splurge on dinner and drinks?? Then we're told they can't take our gift cards. What if we didn't have the money for the bill?? You should probably tell people before they ordered that your not accepting gift cards." He said sorry. But didn't seemed like he really cared.

Got seated in the back by a large loud party - but the waiters and sushi preparers made the most traffic & noise. Asked to be moved up front (empty tables were available) and hostess seemed pretty uninterested in helping us out.

Good food is my only positive comment.

Outdated menu with no flexibility to alter an item even when it is their fault.

Loud Loud Loud. Not energetic!

Cramped seating just to fill as many seats as possible. Felt like we were in a date with the couple's to our left and right.

And it was hot in the restaurant. Mentioned it to our server and she just agreed and walked away.

Any place that has a BLT sushi roll scores points for creativity. The taste did not live up to the promise though. It needed a bit more acid or spice to really make it a classic dish. They ran out of jalapeno for the jalapeno salad, which was disappointing. Service was ok, but not really personable. The nigiri as good.

Excellent experience. We took our son that has fatal food allergies and we rarely dine out, but were in town for a youth soccer tournament. The staff was exceptional and met our needs along with constant checking in to make sure we were happy with everything. We greatly appreciated the service and attention to detail for our son. It made for a very nice evening!

The food is a rip-off. That 15 ounce steak was no 15 ounces at all. The prices go up and the portions get smaller. It was noisy, dark and gloomy. The desert was a big scam. Two bites and it was all gone.

Sushi was good! I feel they could have offerings with scallops in their rolls or white tuna. They all seem very similar, but the fish was fresh and tasted good. The spicy tuna mix had a great amount of heat.
I did not like the house salad, I thought the ginger dressing was flat and had no flavor.
However, I did enjoy myself and will go back.

This visit was a birthday lunch that had to be special and relatively quick. Service was attentive and the lunch crowd was professionally serviced. There was no wait and the food and drink orders were accurate, creative and perfectly executed. There is a full bar that I have seen very busy at evening and a simple but innovative menu of Asian fusion items and traditional sushi. Also, a notable miso soup. I will definitely return for dinner.

We typically LOVE DF. We did not have reservations when we went Saturday, which typically is not a problem (there were PLENTY of empty tables). We had a 45 minute wait, about 10 minutes into our wait, we decided to use open table to see which would get us seated sooner. It was frustrating to see so many empty tables and people standing around waiting. When our Open Table reservation opened up, the waiter informed us that he would check for availability, then told us he was ready to seat us either way because there was an opening. The rest of the night went smoothly.
