The food was hit or miss. Lots of random chili oil and other major ingredients that were not listed on the dish descriptions. For example the “seared albacore” was actually encrusted in peppercorns.

Black sesame & duck confit dumplings were incredible. Pecorino & ricotta pancakes and other bread items were also very good.

Also this may be my personal issue but it feels sinful to eat dumplings, ohitashi, or inari with a fork.

Timing of dishes was erratic and mostly slow. Fried quail had thick oily crust like KFC. Noisy to the level of unenjoyable. I’ve been to this restaurant on three other occasions and all were much better that this visit. The whole place felt “off” somehow

one of the best restaurants in the city. unique dishes and flavors, a real gastronomical experience. We took the spring peas & beets - amazing dish with a spicy kick to it. Also the smoked trout dip and the inari were amazing. Great service. The waiter knew how to pair the wine perfectly. You can't go wrong there.

Was a little skeptical when we had to sit outside but turned out to be a great experience. The heaters were very good and the wooden structure that they built was beautiful. The service/food was excellent and recommendations were spot on. The highlight for us was the broth which was perfect since it was a little chilly that night. All the dishes had distinct flavors and meshed together for a great meal.

Really amazing flavors in all of the dishes we got but the standout favorite was the charred squid salad. Still had a few covid precautions in place so the dimsum cart style wasn't in action yet so I'd definitely want to go back when that's returned.

It's best suited for a young crowd. Enough said? Okay, I'll fill this in a bit more.

First, the service in genuine.
The atmosphere is tight-airy-bar and good people watching. On busy road and were sat in the worst seat back next too the bathroom and right in the traffic patter.

I suggest you (a party of 2) find or wait for the one spot on the bar for best service, comfort and people watching.

Food was just okay in size and creative seasoning = B. Presentation = C. Noise=D.
Our visit was on a Thursday night.

If I was 31, I'd swing by for a light bite and a couple drinks, so maybe a first date kind of place.

FYI: It's loud, not intimate and in the near future they will be allowed to open the remaining tables so the volume will be going UP.

The food was not as good as what I had before. It Is overpriced for the quality of food. I’m in the food industry too and I understand what the pandemic has caused the businesses. I don’t mind paying high prices, but the quality of food needs to be maintained the same level of price.

I had no idea that we actually spent almost two hours at the restaurant, but the entire experience was top notch! The environment was welcoming, the service was on point, and the food was superb! Now I can see why this restaurant has a Michelin star. Bravo!

Disappointing experience; did not meet expectations.
Many dishes were cold.
We were seated at a small metal table and the music playing was 1980’s dance music.
Wait staff did their best but it was a poor choice for an anniversary dinner.

great service. some dishes were very unique and tasty. however, overall, we didn't feel there was anything that really stood out. the meal wasn't very memorable. perhaps our expectations were a bit too high considering the reviews.

Always such a fun experience. The parklet has great ambiance with tables individually heated for comfort. Service was excellent, Super personable, helpful, attentive. Food always exciting and delicious. We love the State Bird quail (best fried bird anywhere) and the kimchi fried rice is unbelievable. Eat here the minute you can get a table.

Our food was good, but so creative we were not always certain about what we were getting. The service was very good and fast.
They really made the outside eating darling, but twice Drunks came by talking to us, which kind of dings the atmosphere.
