Sky was great! We order as the spirit moves us and she was so accommodating. We will be back every time we are in town.

Food is strong 4.5. Great smell upon entry from wood burning grill.

Little bit of attitude from our server left us a bit perplexed, but not enough to damage the evening.

We certainly would return but we would also encourage some retraining of wait staff on the finer points of hospitality.

Absolutely amazing...the food changed my life lol. I usually go to Morton’s steakhouse, Mastro, Capital Grille, David Burke prime, Michael Jordan etc.. by far this was the best experience ever more of the Wagyu Steak OMG...(100% Crazy good.) I will recommend to any living person to try it.. add it on your bucket list. All the food was delicious.. high 10 to the Chef. Our server had good knowledge, history of the food which was great and amazing . (I would request him on my next visit) On the flip side the valet crew was horrible, when arrived my husband had to wave to them for attention because they were watching something on their phones( totally unacceptable ) they didn’t care what so ever.. I didn’t feel welcomed by them. That’s where the difference come in Vs other fine dinning restaurants. Other places I mentioned the valet guys are phenomenal, but these ones were bad. Our hostess was the lady with side hairstyle which is cute, she was great as well took her time while I was talking to her... very nice lady that business people would love to hire.. good personality.. I was showing her Iron Chef America Morimoto pictures with me. 5 STARS—🤩. LOVED IT...

Dined alone and had the Decadent omakase meal. Fabulous food, too much for one person and definitely was a great deal for the price!! 10 courses from amuse bouche to dessert for $125 for a single diner is the best deal in town! Most notable dishes: toro tartare, Sushi presentation, robata sea bass and prawn, finally, American wagyu with three kinds of salt and homemade ponzu. Divine!!!!!

Would have been quieter but, we were there for their Valentine's Day event. A beautiful evening, delicious food, and the ultimate dining experience.

The sauce they serve with the Black Cod friggin' good. I'd order a bowl of that like soup if I wasn't certain I'd be asked to leave. All in all, great lunch, delicious food, attentive service.

Great food, even better service! Loved our server, he was very well informed about the menu and gave good suggestions.
We got the Chicken Yakitori Skewers, Prime Rib Eye, and Soft Shell Crab roll - everything was full of flavor and really delicious!! Would definitely recommend and go back!

my wife and i had dinner at the bar on a saturday night. Slava and Ryan were our fantastic bartenders and skillfuly guided us through the food and wine menu. They educated us about the intricacies of the menu and entertained us with their stories about the restaurant. We loved the food and the vivacious atmosphere . This was one of the most creative menus I have seen and the food was very fresh. We will be back with friends. We hope to see Ryan and Slava again.
Thanks so much for the great time guys.
