All the courses served for the 16 course $95/pp omakase was really fresh and flavorful. I booked this restaurant for my birthday and was disappointment because I didn't get a birthday greeting at all. Also our serve was rather condescending when explaining what she was serving us. My husband and I were still having the last fatty tuna roll and the miso soup which were the last before dessert course, when she just served the dessert as if to rush us.
We both really enjoyed the omakase courses prepared by Chef Kei. They should improve on more courteous reception and table service.

Amazing Omakase from Chef Kei, who came from Sushi Kaito. Everything was perfect! As good as any sushi, anywhere. Highly recommended. Expensive, but worth it.

Excellent omakase selections and great service. We were sitting under an A/C unit though, which made it very cold. Otherwise a great experience.

Truly delicious, extremely fresh & unique kinds of sushi - much of which is flown in from Japan! Service was superb and it was a fantastic date night spot. The portions were perfect as was the sake selection. Absolutely recommend for anyone interested in omakase or just grade A quality sushi. Will definitely be back!

My husband and I made reservations to celebrate our anniversary. We reserved for the bar seating rather than the regular dining option which consisted of 21 tasting menu. We was able to see the sushi chefs in action and was able to speak to them directly and ask them questions. It was quite a memorable experience. The service was outstanding. The omaskase melted in our mouths. It’s definitely a place to celebrate a special occasion. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We enjoyed the omakase here. The vibe is relaxed rather than formal, but the sushi is also high quality. It’s a good mix of great food and accessibility at least for this neighborhood.

We found this place through open table when looking for sushi options for our wedding anniversary. This has been one of our favorite experiences since living in the city. The chef and the waiter, Abbi, were excellent, knowledgeable, super friendly, and excited about the food they are serving. The experience was quiet and intimate. It was a perfect anniversary night. Highly recommend the counter experience with the chef. Very traditional Omakase experience. Can’t recommend this place enough!!

Quite simply the best sushi I have had in the last 5 years. Our server, Abe, was well-informed, attentive and had a great rapport with the sushi chefs.The Regular Omakase for $95 was worth every penny and I am champing at the bit to try their 21 course omakase for $140. Their drink selection is very small and pricy but if you are going to make the splurge, go all in!

The food and service were fabulous, best sushi I've had in years, since living in Japan. Every piece of fish was perfect, the rice was exactly right, all the flavors and textures were amazing. Each plate was totally beautiful. At 5:45 the place was quiet, but it did get noisier as we went. By 7 or so, it was pretty noisy.

Great omakase experience - next time, we will endeavor to sit at the counter. Summer highlights include the nodoguro (black throated sea perch), melt in your mouth hotate (scallop), and kamasu (barracuda). The hot-and-cold aji (sashimi, ochazuke) amuse bouche was a good intro to the flavor and texture forward nature of this omakase, and the milk pudding (adzuki paste, creamy matcha) was a refreshing close. Looking forward to our next visit.

If you can spend a little extra to sit at the sushi bar the chefs are incredibly friendly and take the time to explain and offer opinions. Really great time would highly recommend.
