It was rather busy for a Sunday afternoon during the Pandemic, so the service was a little slow, but the food was good and the servers were very nice.

We had lemon garlic penne with chicken and shellfish. It was bursting with flavor. Will definitely order it again. Kona calamari was cooked perfectly. Nicely spiced with a bright aioli sauce. Picasso sushi roll was very unique. Don't expect a traditional texture and flavor profile and you will enjoy it for what it is. The crab crunch roll was great. Next time I will eat it before penne so that it doesn't get over powered. Finally, the coffee bread pudding was great. It is best if each bite includes a little of the whipped cream and chopped pecans.

Super disappointing from the very beginning. The hostess had a snarky attitude, when we arrived we came in through the side door and did not realize that there were other people in front of us waiting to get checked in as well. We waited off the to side for her to tell us when she was ready and never did so until we said something. The sushi was flavorless as well as the salad with 'macadamia nut chicken' that tasted essentially just like regular breaded chicken. Service was poor, she was nice/friendly but it took 10-15 min just to get our tab...she had asked us twice if we wanted anything else and we said no. It wasn't until we stacked all of our dishes in the middle that she came over to grab them and t hen brought out the tab.
