Celebrated my 25th birthday here and had a great time! The restaurant was clean and felt safe the entire time. All personnel wear masks and ensure that CDC and local guidelines are being followed. The food was delicious as always and the cocktails are presented wonderfully and taste great. Thank you!

Came here for New Year’s Eve, had a wonderful time. Great outdoor ambience with a hip vibe. Service was on point from our waiter to bus boy. Food was really good and they offered happy hour drink specials. Felt super safe during covid.

We went here on Xmas day and it was a wonderful experience. The drinks were great and the food was delicious. The brussel sprouts were on the saltier side so they took it off our menu. They also gave us a bottle of hand sanitizer for dining with them, which was a nice gesture. The ambiance is chill and totally reminds me of a Vegas restaurant in OC. 10/10 would come back.

The food was very good, the service good, however the plate of one of the persons coming with me took too long to be served, we already finished eating and we asked what happened with her order and looks like in the kitchen they forgot to do it, it came 5 minutes after.

It was like being in Vegas but not in Vegas. The aesthetic is beautiful. Service is on point. Wagyu ribeye melts in your mouth and their drinks make you want to party!

Incredible service! Beautiful socially distant layout with multiple heaters and fire pits to keep you warm. The food is spectacular and their shishito peppers are the best I’ve ever had.

Flavors were very good. The beef quality was grade A. The service was attentive. I'm digging the concept of small plates and preparation celebrating the elements.

The food was outstanding. We ordered sushi and several items from the regular menu. All 6 of us said we would like to come back. The shrimp tempera roll, 5 elements dumplings, seafood fried rice, octopus and scallion pancakes were our favorites.

Service is great. They were helpful and picked up empty dishes quickly. The staff is friendly too.

They are a bit pricy but the quality of the food is worth it. Highly recommend this restaurant.
