    The food was excellent! Highly recommend the duck dumplings, Udon noodle dish and lobster dish. We enjoyed a very nice Ravines Dry Riesling. Our server was knowledgeable and fun and extremely helpful. It was crowded on a weekend night so our only issue was the noise level. Still, a wonderful evening!

    The food is good, but is definitely not worth what they charge. Our server forgot our drinks for 40 mins and tried to blame the system. Then brought one of our drinks while forgetting the other.The “system” was her trying to remember. Limited menu and everything basically has shellfish. Do not bring anyone with a shellfish or seafood allergy. They won’t have any options. Also, it’s in the Blue Llama Jazz club (downstairs). So you will have to likely pay to park somewhere around. But was fun to try a new restaurant.

    We saw that happy hour was advertised on the website but it was not available that evening but we dedicated to stay regardless. The server was very slow to come back to take our order, check on us, etc - not the type of service you would expect from a restaurant like this, quite the opposite. I ordered a Sauvignon blanc and received a Pinot Grigio instead, for example. Additionally and perhaps most importantly, the food was substandard and not worth the price. While the ambiance was neat, I would still go elsewhere and probably won’t return.

    Nearly everything was terrific -- the food, service, atmosphere. The only thing I was disappointed about was that we came in for Happy Hour and found that they weren't having it that night as they were introducing their new menu. We were going to a movie afterwards, made a reservation at 5:30, so we were really just looking for appetizers during their posted Happy Hour hours of 5-6:30. It would have been desirable to post that on their website -- which clearly denoted Happy Hour Tuesday thru Saturday -- that they weren't doing it. Moreover, we weren't the only diners that night who were surprised, and disappointed, to learn of the change. Hopefully this was just a glitch as know they're new. As everything else was very well done, we'll certainly give them another try.

    There isn't any signage outside this restaurant, so you must be careful not to walk past. Also, You will have to walk down a set of stairs (about 15) to get to the entrance (mindful of those with ADA accommodations or wearing high heels). The vibe was very nice. We were late for our reservation, but they could still accommodate us. The services were really good and attentive. They handled our order accommodations graciously. The food was delicious (I tried the dumplings, shumai, crab fried rice, and sushi rolls); however the price for the fried rice, I expected a little more veggies and flavor. I'll be back in 2023

    Wonderful experience with great food. Bao buns were so good that we had to order more. They were great to put the jalapeños on the side of the teriyaki beef udon noodles for the ones that were concerned about spice level. Loved it all. Also expresso martini was fabulous!

    Overall, a nice place. Service was good, but menu selection is limited and expensive. $27 to 25 for fried rice dishes? The appetizers were delicious. The fried rice/spicy tuna was excellent and pork belly one was all so good.

    It was fine - but just fine. Though the decor and ambience was stylish, it felt like it fell just short of the mark of a finished concept. The service was outstanding, but the food was just ok. I liked what they were trying to do by offering some unusual takes on the food, but nothing tasted particularly exciting - unless you’re only experience with eastern cuisine is neighborhood Chinese food, I don’t think you’d be wowed. The sushi was good but again, not outstanding. I’m glad we went and it was nice, but I probably wouldn’t make it a go-to destination.

    Quite expensive for not particularly special. Drinks were spilled coming to the table. Fried spring rolls were burnt. They brought the lobster tail tom yum to the table (in lots of delicious sauce!) *in the shell* with no knife or other implement to remove the shell. We eventually got it apart and cut it up with the side of a spoon, without spilling the sauce. The udon was good, and the drinks tasted fine. Overall, it's okay, but I wouldn't recommend it and we won't be going back.

    Food quality is fair at best, but very expensive. Just moved to the area from LA and was looking forward to some good sushi, but this wasn’t it. Tried a number of menu items; the dumplings were pretty good. Everything else was mediocre at best and very overpriced. Looks like I’m still looking for quality Asian restaurants in the area….

    They have a lot to work on. The eggplant appetizer had burnt raw parts that were inedible. The rice bowls lacked flavor, care or opportunity to be better. We had a very nice waitress, but was not enough to make the meal enjoyable.
