    Service was extremely slow. We were staying at the hotel and spa for the night and had reservations for 7:15, was a full hour until we got drinks and longer for food. When the food came out it was nicely presented and flavourful. The restaurant appears short staffed we constantly had to stop someone to get our waiter or refill our water. Overall 6/10.

    Great experience. Excellent food, very good service despite the restaurant being full. Everything was delicious from the Tuna Tartar to the Chef’s Sashimi platter to the fries in the side of the Wagyu Sliders. Drinks were proper. Given all the food and drinks we had, I was ok with the pricing as well. Great experience all around.

    Unfortunately our experience was not what we’d hoped it would be. First of all, the chairs at the tables are uncomfortable, thin seat, but deep so you’re either slouching forward or sitting way back. Any attention to our table was halted after we got our food. No one came back to check on us or fill our water. Took longer than ideal to get our bill. The food was alright but not worth the price. Music was quite a bit louder than it had to be. The sangria, was excellent but unfortunately one of the only pluses. Disappointing as we had high hopes.

    We were shown to the last desirable table by the cash register. We asked if we could move to a more central table and we’re told “No, it was reserved. “ (We did notice it was not occupied the whole time we were there.) The second issue was the pricing, quite expensive. From there it was all uphill as our server was delightful and attentive and the food was outstanding and delivered hot. We had the cod and the lamb. Absolutely heavenly!

    We reserved a table for New Year’s Eve but were seated at the banquet in front of the sushi chefs. It was nice but I think when placing a reservation, it could have the option to choose chef’s bar or table as i would have preferred a table! As it was New Years Eve, I think a nice touch would have been to offer everyone a complimentary mimosa (after) a first drink order had been placed, to ensure money would not have been lost on a first drink order. Our waiter was extremely kind and energetic! I did enjoy my night but these are just suggestions for the future!

    Excellent food - tasty and fresh. Nice chic atmosphere with house music. Service was excellent but you can’t be in a hurry. Since all the sushi and sashimi is handmade fresh to order, it takes some time to get your food. The tempura cheesecake for dessert is to die for! Only negative is that it’s quite pricey but I guess that’s par for the course these days.

    Very interesting and delicious dinner. Great service by everyone there. Our server was wonderful but a couple of times when we looked around, another server would come over immediately to see if we needed anything. Very kind goodbye at the end as well. My favourites were the oysters, angry chicken (it’s a must share though cause too much of just chicken for one person) and the dynamite roll. All incredibly delicious. Nice relaxing atmosphere. Would love to go back!
