We went on the Saturday after Valentines Day and they were slammed. They first sat us on the covered patio and it was freezing with a cold draft coming right towards us. We asked to move and he then placed us at a small round table directly in front of the DJ stand!?! We then moved for a third time each time they were super polite about it. I would recommend requesting the main dining room. It was nice and comfortable there. Food was good but like always after 4 separate sushi rolls you still leave hungry. The wine pours were very skimpy. Tiny glasses only 1/3 full. Our poor waitress was also slammed with no one to come around and refill water glasses. The place has a fun vibe but I guess they still have a few kinks to work out and to figure the heating situation.

They sat us 30 minutes after our reservation time and we showed up 10 minutes early. The food is good but their operation and management need to improve to keep our business

The management inexplicably decided to have their meeting with the wait staff close by our table and that certainly detracted from the experience. Apparently they were proud that the previous night they had been “number two in all of Lombardi!” Excited applause and who cares about the diners nearby. The food was generally good but at the price, I expected more. For example the wagyu hot rock came with four tiny almost transparent thin slices of beef for an amazing $50. For the price, you’d be better off going to Uchi. The Foie Gras three ways was just weird and out of place. It came with two tiny pieces of cracker and nothing sweet to compliment the seared foie gras itself. Trying to eat this with no knife and only chopsticks is quite a challenge. I also had the black cod entree. It was pretty good but again not amazing and not as good as the same dish served at Roy’s (and called butterfish there). The dessert we chose (the Panna Cotta) was excellent and helped to at least put me into a fairly good frame of mind before the bill arrived. I have no problem spending a lot at a restaurant but expect excellent food and service and we did not have this when we were there.

Omakasi was good, but not great. Waitress was good, but the wait staff that brought our courses did a poor job of explaining each course. Steak was over cooked. For $200 per person, we’ve had much better service at Nobu.

The food is amazing and the sushi meat was very nice, but the portions on the non-roll plates do not reflect their value.

Started off shaky with not being seen after seating for 13 minutes but once Jerod (MGR) was notified this place exceeded our expectations! Jerod (MGR) Leo (server) were absolutely phenomenal!!
So good we made another reservation for Sunday to have the Peking Duck.

Amazing food and excellent service. Everything we tried was delicious! We had tempura, sushimi, sushi, rock shrimp and pad Thai.

Service was personal and our waiter was well versed on the extensive menu. Definitely will come back for another occasion!

Sushi- mediocre at best
Appetizers- not bad, not amazing either
Service- TERRIBLE... 30-40 minute wait for each drink the whole time we were there
Overpriced and overrated
Will not go back. Save your time and money... go to Kotta.

We had a reservation and were sat next to the kitchen at a cramped table right on the servers walkway. There were too many tables in that section, I was hit several times by waitstaff passing directly behind me. Our waiter seemed to be the only one in our section, we were there 2 hours and were only served one drink. He rarely made it back to us to check in so we could order another round. The prices were a bit exorbitant for the service and atmosphere.

Very beautiful decor and authentic vibe! Staff was knowledgeable and very nice. It was my boyfriends birthday and they brought a complimentary dessert (mochi?). They have a huge heated patio and a beautiful lounge area for drinks and appetizers. You can watch chefs make sushi while you eat as well! The manager even stopped by our table and talked to us for a while. 10/10 Great new restaurant. I will definitely be back!

Trying to be like Nobu (actually more expensive) older crowd trying to be hip. Bar area has a nice vibe but many solo non tipping, non spending gangstas lurking the bar for soccer moms. Food was rabbit portions and way overpriced. $36 for 1/2 sake bottle. Good place for 1 drink if you want to kill an hour. Been here twice, left both times down $220+ hungry, sober and unsatisfied.

Service was extremely slow. Managers were inattentive. My $25 prawn came out raw. This was our first time at this restaurant and the overall experience was terrible. Our tab came out to be about $195 for 2 people. We would have spent more there had the experience been better. We ended up spending the rest of our evening next door at Bulla.

Atmosphere / decor excellent. Our first visit there the owner came over to our table and we had a nice conversation.
The food took quite awhile to come out and when it finally did, they served mine and our two kids but not my husband ( who ordered fish ). He didn’t get served until we had almost finished our meals ( and we waited to eat thinking his would be served any minute ) ; we said something To our waitress ( Who was very nice ) and she just said sorry.
And we never got our appetizer either ; Really Unacceptable since the food is kind of pricey but will give it another try in the future.
