Cool atmosphere and excellent service here. Food was amazing, though on the high end price wise for what you get. Everything was prepared expertly, presented perfectly and at the right pace. Overall, this was an excellent experience.

Visited from out of town and the restaurant was amazing. Dealt with my loud self and friends perfectly fit in but was not overly loud. Waitress was on time with all of the food and drinks. Explained the menu amazingly and the quality of the food was out of this world. Will be back.

This is a chain so I was hesitant but in Arizona there aren’t too many choices for Japanese food. We sat in the lounge area which was the most fun. The food was pretty good, Americans like spicy things so if you want more authentic dishes ask them to hold the hot sauce. All in all pretty good fusion place with great sake selection. First night service was great, we went back a few days later and different server wasn’t as on it. The only other place we found was a Michelin star kind of place at $225 a person. We’ve done these kind of meals but we save it for SF or Japan where the fish is ultra fresh.

Chef Bridger and server Cody were both on top of their game. We sat at the counter (recommended) and ordered the Omakase (highly recommended), which gave us the opportunity to be guided through each course by the chef himself. I've been here easily a half dozen times, this was the best experience yet. Having such a skilled, knowledgeable, and personable chef made for a very memorable dinner.
Also- when you come here make sure you tip the chef directly (not on your bill- save that for the waitstaff). They don't get a cut otherwise, which doesn't seem right when you have such a fantastic chef. Bring a little cash and don't even ask them (they'll refuse), just leave it for them and walk out.

Great time, yes a bit pricier than other Japanese joints but their attention to quality and product is a differentiator and worth the price. Hot plates were excellent and fish specials were fantastic. Service was solid.

I was impressed. I mean the dinning room can use some work and redesign as there are barely any (or none at all) booth for couples. Just tables. But, that aside I had an amazing experience there.

The servers are responsive, unlike some other fine dining places where they barely take care of you. They checked in after each dish without being too disruptive and made sure we're well taken care of. My water is always refilled quickly.

The spicy egg plant is crispy and seasoned perfectly. The sweet corn is grilled just right without the butter overly done. The veggie tempura be is fried well, battered evenly, and breading is light. The sauces that comes with the dishes are well crafted, and the smoked salt elevated the flavors to another level. My date had the butter fish, which she loved. I had the mushrooms hotpot, which is also done well! Impressed and hope they keep up the quality in the future visits.
