    While the food, drinks and ambience was nice this is not a up scale Japanese restaurant. Besides a few items on the menu this really is not a Japanese restaurant at all. Doesn’t mean the food wasn’t good, just means if your going in there hoping for traditional Japanese food you will be disappointed.

    They’ve change the menu from last year they used to give you unlimited sushi and it was very fresh. This wasn’t as good and they try to charge you all over the place so be careful still a great view the service and the servers are great. The music is a little too loud if you’re sitting outside unless you’re in the middle, but your feet are on either edge it’s too loud you can’t have a conversation. It’s a shame the food was amazing before I don’t know why they changed it

    Unfortunately, we would not recommend this restaurant and will not go back. The good – the location and the restaurant itself are nice and has a great view. That’s about all the good we can say. The food was average at best and the service was absolutely horrible. We waited so long for our food (some didn’t come out at all and we had to ask for some of the dishes more than once). The food flavor is average at best (bland), you receive small portions, and the prices are high (for the food you portion/flavor you receive). Some of the food we ordered: Grilled Shishito Peppers with Sansho Salt (average – bland…we even asked for salt to be brought to the table, which didn’t ever happen), White miso soup (horrible – we had to ask our server three times to bring this out – we didn’t even finish it, it was that bland), Pork Dumplings (average), grilled octopus (actually pretty good, but one tentacle for $32), and steak (below average – it tasted like it had a burned/charred – not in a good way – taste and for the price, it should be delicious). You are also charged for water and a mandatory 20% tip is added on regardless of how bad the service is. From there, you can add on a smaller percentage if you want to. Where we are from, the tip depends on the service, and this server/restaurant would not have gotten 20% by any stretch of the imagination.

    Etaru is a favorite given the ocean views and wonderful food. Be prepared for some wind on many days unless you opt to sit inside. Food is delicious including the Branzino and grilled octopus. The tuna tataki is excellent as is the fried prawn sushi. There is some inside dining as well.

    A little disorganized in terms of being seated and finding a waitress, but once she arrived, our waitress was excellent. The food is great and inventive. You cannot beat the view. One downside is there is no parking and valet is $15

    We had a reservation for 3 o’clock and the hostess called us if we could come in an hour earlier at 2 o’clock because that is the last seating. We couldn’t understand why they would allow reservations if that was the case. When we arrived we were sat promptly and soon realized that they continued to seat people passed 3. It was pretty inconvenient considering we had to cut our day short that we planned and rush over to the restaurant. The food was decent, I wouldn’t say it was anything extraordinary. The view was great but you cant go wrong with a beach view. The service was also mediocre but our server was nice. Overall this place is nice if you like views and aren’t a big foodie but I wouldn’t come here again.

    Great Brunch spot. A bit pricey but we’ll worth it as the food and beverage are plentiful. Great quality food, great ambiance(when raining water is running into the restaurant from the outside doors). Service was friendly and professional. This is my 3rd time here. I used to live in the area but moved to the NE. Made this a destination brunch for us and will continue to do so.

    It was my first time visiting this place and did not disappoint. I was running late so I contacted the restaurant and they quickly rearranged my reservation. Everybody was very friendly and attentive. Since it was too windy, they accommodated us inside. The food was very good ( California Maki, Salmon Maki and the Coconut parfait were delicious - just to mention some options that we ordered from the menu). The drinks still could improve in my opinion - Margarita and Tozai Spritz. Kudos to Cesar and Marina B. for making such dinner experience so memorable. They have valet ( pricey at $15 with restaurant validation) . Suggest make reservations before you go.

    lunch hours have a tiny lunch menu, I was unaware of this before going, but we were able to make it work. I ordered the chicken, the marinade/sauce was spicy, I don't eat spicy foods but it was so good with the best yuca fries. I also had the matcha mango iced tea to drink and it was really good! I ordered a side of asparagus and used the sweet dressing to dip my chicken and combat the spiciness. My mom had the steak, she enjoyed it. I had a try but felt it lacked flavor in comparison to my plate. She did not want the fries and had to pay an extra $3 for a side of asparagus. The inside table space is limited during lunch and outside could use a fan during strong sun hours, but the view is great and it is a peaceful place. We ate a lot so we did not have desert but we stayed outside to enjoy the view for awhile after eating inside.

    All I can say is to make sure to check your receipt and retain it for your records. I’d also suggest to pay cash if possible. My friend and I split the bill, and we gave cash as well as credit. When the slip was brought to sign, it didn’t indicate that cash was given. It was very sketchy, and the waitress got worried and handed us back $5, which made absolutely no sense. Upon inquiring with the manager, there was clearly something that wasn’t right. They were very defensive and claimed the way the receipt was handled was “their process”. I made sure to obtain a new receipt that showed we had given cash. The next day, my friend’s husband received an alert that the charge was made twice, then one was reversed. (probably after I questioned the entire transaction). Make sure to pay attention because there’s be no proof of our cash payment if we didn’t push the issue.

    We were party of 8. The food is really great but service is below expectations. Few times server forgot about our appetizer and kids got it after the main. At the end, I presented my residence card which gives 10% as advertised by Etaru but the waiter never applied it . This is not first time and I decided to go to restaurant next day and ask for the discount that they advertised. The manager wasn’t helpful. She told they they “do a favour” with this discount and she can’t do anything. Always check your bill or you will be scammed. Very disappointed how manager handled the issue with me as I am spending a lot of money in this restaurant…

    Great place for brunch although a bit confusing as to what foods are an upcharge. Food was excellent as was the service. Only complaint was the menu needs to be updated to reflect just what's included in the $65 price point.

    So so experience: the restaurant positions itself as a unique culinary experience which is very doubtful. Appetizers were ok but nothing outstanding, main course was bad: duck leg and octopus were dry and burnt to black on one side, we’ve asked to replace those and got it almost uncooked; branzino and black cod were dry and not tasty at all. Atmosphere is not very nice either, noisy and lots of people moving around. Expensive place and totally not worth it
