    I think they're just busy, we waited nearly 20 minutes after we finished our meal for the final item. We even told them that they could cancel it, then they came back 10 minutes later to tell us that the chef started on it and I'm like, if I told you 10 minutes ago to cancel the item and then you come back, telling me I have to wait an add'l 5 minutes for the item, how can it not be cancelled? If you forgot about me (which is fine), allow me to cancel the item. I know there is a staffing shortage but that was dumb. Then they gave us the wrong check. I haven't been to this place in 3 years and I mainly come for the saba makerel. After this experience, it'll prob be another 3 years for me to return even if I work closeby.

    Worst customer service we waited 1 hour for skewers we ordered everything at the same time oysters came out way too late ( we already finished eating skewers). they forgot about the order and didn't really remind us and we're 3rd customers so it didn't make any sense. We asked for our order because waiting time between food was way too long. If your going to order skewers probably waiting time will be an hour just letting you know the lady server was too rude attitude overall was really bad probably i will never go back. I don't recommend this place food is just okey for the price. We didn't ask for the ginger and they charged $1 for it for really small amount. I even want to make a video about the customer service because I can't even write how they treat us for $300 meal it was horrible dinner

    Everything was very delicious. Especially yakitori is juicy and highly recommended. I don't think I can enter unless I make a reservation because it gets crowded. Even when I came to the store, it seems that some people came without reservations and couldn't enter because of reservations.

    The food was as good as usual. However the service was okay when we just got in but later on they’re like forgetting about us, came check on us VERY rarely and we had hard time finding anyone for water. They also missed a dish we ordered. And customers talk really loud in the restaurant that I could barely heard my friends sitting in front of me.

    There's nothing quite like a great Izakaya spot, and this one fits the bill. Great combination of flavors. Sashimi was excellent quality, while the cooked dishes done over charcoal provide a great contrast.

    For the $150 per person valentine taste testing, the food was not even close to that. For that price you’d expect high end food and service. But they only gave about $50 worth of food and it tasted a little below average. Some sashimi, tempura, miso clam soup, a little salmon, oysters, etc. The exotic food they made did not taste good at all. I would not redo that even if the price was $50 per person. This was a cash grab for Valentine’s Day and I will not be returned to this place again. You can get so much better food at even $30 a person. Very disappointed.

    They have no idea what they are doing! The food is good, but the tasting menu was a mess. Service does not know the menus, food was super slow, and missed items in our set. Could be a much better Valentine's Day event. And totally not worth the money.

    Everything for he most part was good. I was a bit annoyed though when we asked for a different table and they said they were reserved but we had a reservation & a pre set menu also set up. Didn’t want to argue on Valentine’s Day so I just let it go.

    The shashimi and beef tongue are very good. But the crab handroll was over cooked. It taste burnt and bitter. I told the server but there is no replacement or discojnt. Nothing was done. We spent almost 300 dollar

    Our first time but it has made quite the impression. Food offering and quality was excellent. Not too many Japanese offer the type of food you'd find here. Enjoyed the beef tongue and pork cheek. Loved the carpaccio and pressed mackerel. We'll try other dishes next time.

    The only negative issue, was that both doors were open, I imagine for air circulation, due to increased COVID concerns. It was not a comfortable temperature inside at night.
