I took a a high school friend of mine here while she was in the city and she really enjoyed it. I have to say we really enjoyed our meal and our stay here. She comes often and we try to go to many different high end restaurants as long as she's here and she said hands down for the price we were paying this was hands down one of her favorites. Definitely will re-visit the no down side I could think of other then other diners being a loud but it fits with the atmosphere of the restaurant as a whole. Great service and great food!

My date ordered a full course meal. I ordered appetizer lobster rolls and brussel sprouts. I told out server that I would be having the lobster rolls and brussel sprouts as my main course. They first brought out the lobster rolls. A few minutes later they brought the brussel sprouts. They did not bring my date's meal. When I mentioned this to my server I got no apology. Rather he said that her meal would be out in a few minutes. It was very sloppy service for a place this pricey

The service is amazing. Our water glasses were never empty dirty dishes were whisked away we never felt we were being rushed. The fold was amazing we had Crispy Brussels Sprouts so good I could have eaten the whole bowl by myself, Tiger Shrimp Tempura excellent wonderful sauce , Japanese Style Fried Chicken also a great sauce , Lobster Dumplings excellent , California Crab Roll, Spicey Crunchy Tuna Roll and Spicey Steamed Edamame. They also have excellent cocktails and great wine. All was wonderful.

Beautiful presentation! Sushi came on dishes with lights that change colors! Fresh seafood—from the fatty tuna sashimi we ordered on the side to the oysters that came with our omakase, the food was delicious. Best wagyu beef I have ever had. Great service—they changed our plates with every course. The dessert course was over the top and beyond our expectations. It’s expensive so just be prepared for that. Would definitely come again!

Very disappointed in our lunch. Over powerful garlic on sashimi hamachi; miso soup was not edible (tasted like bad fish), Heirlooms salad used too mush of tomatoes. Lobster roll was bland.

The filet steak was good and the best thing I ordered. Possibly an off day, but what a disappointing experience all around.

For most of the lunch the music was so loud, I had difficulty hearing my colleague. He also drove quite a far distance for this forgettable experience.

I don’t think I’ve ever had a dish here I didn’t like. Food is always outstanding and service is always on point. It will get a little pricey if you come in very hungry, and only knock on the place is that it gets pretty noisy.

Wonderful dinner here with friends and family the night before heading to see Hamilton. We really enjoyed the variety on the menu and we had a bit of everything. Highlights were: Lobster dumplings, corn, uni, chefs nigiri sampling and Japanese Wagyu. I got 3oz of the lowest grade offering on the menu and it was absolutely amazing. I could have eaten a 5 times as much but the stuff isn't cheap; however well worth the splurge if you're a steak fan.
