I was also happy to see that there are attractive male servers now, in addition to the attractive women servers they've had previously. Even when busy, it's well run.

The food is as fresh as you can imagine, the service is on point and well managed by whomever has put this well oiled machine in motion. Oh, how I WISH they’d come to Orlando. We sat upstairs overlooking the ocean vista while the bartenders and servers moved around us with such seamless perfection. The dishes were incredibly well plated and presented. This place is a MUST and should not be missed. Take the ride A1A ride and get there!

The appetizers were excellent, with the Hamachi carpachio being the standout. The speciality nigiri (sushi) was the star of the night. We tried one of everything and found that the salmon and scallop were the best I've ever had. We ordered a number of the rolls as well, and while they were delicious, they couldn't compare to the nigiri. Next time, I would just order the sushi pieces themselves and skip the rolls.

My dear friend and I enjoyed an amazing assortment of sushi, all recommended by our fabulous server who knows the menu well & had a fabulous personality to boot! She introduced us to Otoro, ponzu sauce and much more! Sitting at the sushi bar was delightful as well, and drink menu is equally enticing. Can’t wait to return!

Server was friendly but the service was very slow. We got our appetizers well ahead of our drinks. Our drinks were tasty but we’re pretty low on alcohol. If we’re paying $13 for an alcoholic drink I would expect at least a bit of a happy buzz by the 3rd round. Our appetizers were pretty good and ordered 2 rolls. My wife ordered a box roll that was real good and I ordered the $60 baller roll, what a disappointment that was. I felt like I couldn’t tell the difference between the $60 and a roll you get at the local Publix, I get the tuna and Otoro but other than that there is absolutely nothing special about it. Sad to say but this place is just a mediocre sushi spot and confused by all the great reviews.

When I told her my name and threat we had reservations for 2 at 5:30. I also mentioned that I had some hip pain and that we would like to be seated closer to the front. She promptly said that could not happen because they were expecting a party of 24. So, she offered a high top. I explained that would impossible considering the state I was in at the time. We were then seated in the back. I asked to speak with the manager and he basically said she was correct in telling us that they were expecting a party of 24. We left around 7:00 and there was still no party of 24 and the four tables in front of us had been seated. Poor service in the front and poor service by management. We will never dine here again.

One of the servers only addressed my husband. We did not order much food and ate very quickly but it took an hour for the service even though there were open tables and staff walking around everywhere. The noise was so loud we couldn't hear each other. We booked weeks in advance and specified this was for a special anniversary... The table next to us was celebrated but nothing was even acknowledged for us. The food was tasty but I wouldn't recommend to anyone based on noise and service.

The chefs were not friendly but that didn't matter. The sushi was outstanding. I eat lots of sushi and this was excellent. I had a playboy roll, a box sushi, tuna tartare, and tuna tataki. The tuna tartare was excellent in flavor (quail egg put it over the top) and texture. Smooth and fresh, super soft. The box sushi was a first for me and I will forever order it. Each ingredient was present for taste. The sushi rice was flavorful and had the correct stickiness and texture. Additionally, I ordered a side of fried rice and it was like cotton candy in my mouth. It wasn't sweet, but it was light and fluff\y. It was flavorful as if a hint of coconut milk was in there. I cant speak highly enough of my sushi experience. A bit above average in cost, wait staff was friendly, knowledgeable and kind but we could have used a bit more attention. I will say the restaurant needed a good dusting. The sushi tip jars were gross.

The sushi rice did not taste great; it was too dry in the rolls. Some of the roll ideas were good, but, for instance, on the roll with scallops, one of the pickled vegetables overwhelmed the scallop flavor. The servers forgot to bring ordered miso. The lobster sashimi was well done, though, with a well balanced amount of rock salt.
