I don't know if it was just particularly busy the Saturday night that we tried to go but it was very clear that the hostess and staff was not prepared for the amount of people. While having a reservation, we had to wait about 30 minutes before being shown basically a little kids table. We declined the table and left soon after. Maybe the food is good, wouldn't know, but everything was about the restaurant leaves a lot to be desired.

A nice mix of fine dining and quasi-hipster. The DJ next to the bar, with no dance floor is a bit bizarre for a restaurant. Eclectic, great people watching, excellent cocktails. A great place to sit at the bar and mingle.

This restaurant was more trendy than i expected. It had a great atmosphere with good energy and interesting people. The main course is sushi. My date and I enjoy sushi frequently and found this place to be exceptional. The drinks were a bit sugary for our taste, but this was definitely offset by the quality of the sushi. I recommend the Lobster Mango Roll. I have never had lobster in a maki roll and i'm not sure why. They cook crab for them, why not lobster. It was delicious. I can't think of one item we ordered that was not delicious. Also, the service was very good and responsive. Overall, I recommend this place for dates and meeting up with friends.

The food and ambiance were great, but the large pack of 17 year olds who were running around taking Instagram pictures were unreal. We kept praying that someone would kick them out or call their parents. Very good otherwise, maybe make it a 21+ establishment?

Sushi: overpriced and taste like chlorine - have had better sushi at hole in the walls that I've stumbled into on a whim. Hot food and cocktails are good. Service is nice! Extremely disappointed overall due to the quality of the sushi and the hype of the restaurant, which is the reason I came.

The food is always very good and select sushi rolls are half price during Happy Hour. Our server was very slow to fill water and check on us and our water tasted like bleach (cups probably were not rinsed properly). Eventually, it got to the point where we just asked her to leave the bottle of water at our table (as many restaurants do). She didn't seem to like this and did not give us a response. She just left the bottle on the table without pouring it and walked away... this didn't surprise me because she didn't respond to any other requests I had - no "sure" or "ok" even. The environment is always nice and since this is more popular in the evening, the restaurant is pretty empty and good for lunch.

The food was excellent the service was under par for the price of the meal. Drinks were forgotten about and took 30 minutes to receive. I've worked in the service industry for 8 years, I understand things are forgotten about but that should be communicated to the table, not awkwardly avoided. Food was great, nigiri was excellent. Seating is a little too close. Would definitely give the place another shot with another server.

Service was horrible. Delayed and very unprofessional. Their sushi was lackluster at best. My party had four different rolls and the best one would be average at another sushi restaurant. Drinks tasted pretty good but took 15 minutes to get. Server said the reason for the delay was because they were so busy. I counted about 15 people in the place at the time. Not going back.
