    Family visiting from other cold state and enjoyed a beautiful restaurant with delicious food, quality sushi and great staff! Restaurant manager was accommodating and very service oriented! It’s a gem of a location and the renovations are tasteful and modern. Would love to see more sushi options. Compliments to the chef. Also very memorable tasty chicken sandwich. Definitely come back soon.

    It was loud, I mean, I had to scream to have a conversation. We ended up waiting for 30 minutes to get served. We went their for my husband’s bday, but didn’t get to celebrate the way we wanted to. What a waste of money and time.

    I went with my husband for our anniversary last weekend and had a great experience from the food service, ambience and our server Jasmine is very pleasant and very helpful. When I ask her to put us in a seat that has a nice view, she accommodated us right away. This experience made our anniversary special and memorable. I would definitely go back there.

    My dad and I arrived and were sat at a lovely table, however we were both very cold. Someone overheard us and told someone else to move us to a table by the fire. That was extremely thoughtful and accommodating. Happy with dinner and service 100%.

    The food and view were excellent. The waitress was very friendly but slow. Took quite a while for every order- drinks, food, dessert, and it was not crowded on a Wednesday evening. Other than that everything was very good! It’s pretty expensive to valet park, even with a validation. But I would go back again for sure!

    Great view of the water, but the menu was very weak.... had to settle for a burger when I was looking for fresh fish to eat during my new year's lunch. UI wouldn't recommend this place as burgers cost 26 bucks or so...

    I was bummed they didn’t honor my request to sit at patio. I’ve been there many times in the past and was celebrating our engagement with my family and no one acknowledged that either. Also disappointed they changed the menu and took away the short rib cigars. In addition service was slow, my guess is they were understood and hence the 3 stars.

    We booked a party of 7 for the day after Christmas at Larsens. We got a lovely corner table inside. We were seated on time and greeted warmly. Unfortunately the service wasn't "five star". The person serving the tap water served over people and dropped water on the table several times. Our drink service was quick and the cocktails were delicious. We ordered our meals and, as a previous waitress in upscale restaurants, I felt the delivery was lacking. Even with expeditors each person should reserve their meal without the servers asking "who has the oysters?". The staff really should have a system to ensure each person receives their order served. Also, no one came by after to ask how our meal was? And no offer of desserts? We've been here a few times and the service was more personal.
