    Too expensive for such small protein portions with no sides. Salmon was bland except for teriyaki topping. Salad was the best part of the meal.

    For the first time of many, a bit disappointing. The meat didn't seem of the usual quality nor was the service. The Brussels sprouts were tasty but oily and the rice and the mushroom hot pot was bland. Usually, the higher price is warranted, but not this time. I often take people there for their first time and they rave, but I won't again unless I have a better experience myself.

    It's Steak month, so my daughter and I shared the Steak Flight with Waygu beef. What a treat. Service is good. Enjoyed a couple of interesting drinks. Started with Tempura Vegetables which were hot and crispy. A very nice dinner.

    Everything was great but our seating situation. We were sat directly next to the server station and it was super annoying. Hard to have a private conversation. Seems like a cheap and greedy way to pack as many tables as possible into the restaurant at the expense of your guests. No matter how good the food or service - it was really hard to enjoy our dining experience.

    We got the ribeye which was a tad overdone but it was seasoned to perfection. All the rolls were fresh and portions were generous considering it’s a sushi place. Our server Dana was sweet and attentive. We will definitely be back and I highly recommend.

    Brian, Lee and Dan are the best. I have been coming to this place for years and the food and service is always consistently amazing. We even brought the newest member of our family, a 1.5 year old, and they made us feel extremely welcomed. Not an easy feat for such a nice restaurant, but of course the impressed as always.

    Yes I ordered these Korean spiced lamb chops which I asked the waiter if they were very spicy he said no just a little bit of a kick. However I could not eat them because they were way too spicy for me so I shared my partners meal and gave him my lamb chops

    Our fist time back since COVID. It was good to be back to one of our favorite places. Some things have changed in the menu and service was a bit off. But it’s still a nice place for Japanese style food.

    This a great restaurant, even if you are not shopping. The cocktails are creative and the food is fresh, healthy and delicious. The interior of the restaurant is attractive with wood accents and an open kitchen. The vibe is lively, but not too loud. Service is always attentive.
