From the moment we stepped into the restaurant till the moment we left we had the best service. Staff was very friendly and fun. The food was amazing! We were told to try the sushi ice cream for dessert and it did not disappoint. We will be back when visiting Ft. Lauderdale again!

Beautiful outdoor dining, elevated so the street traffic wasn’t annoying. We enjoyed several sushi dished that were excellent, very fresh fish paired with delicious sauces. Great service. Pricy, but worth it.

Tali was the best. Good drinks, wonderful food. Enjoyed the Wagyu gyoza & spicy Edamame. The most. Tuna tartare traditional mediocre. Wagyu beef tartare was fire, just could have been a tad bigger in size.

Love the terrace for outside, beach view, shaded dining. Amazing food, good quality, incredible tastes, duck buns, beef, and kimchi rice (large portion good for sharing). Been several times and everything I have dried gets a gold star. My new favorite restaurant. Sunday afternoons come with a loungy ambient DJ.

Had reservations for 9:15 said they would text/call when ready. It was a Saturday night I honestly expected to wait, no big deal. Waited over an hour NO call, went up and the same women I checked in with acted as if someone “tried” to call, ..whatever that means. Finally at 10:20 we were being seated. Then they had us walk around the whole place to find seating, gave no drink menu, 1 ripped food menu, didn’t apologize once for WAITING AN HOUR with reservations for ultimately their mistake, both hostess were rude/dismissive and could care less. Bar was packed so couldn’t get drinks, food was pretty good, but I honestly have had better Asian fusion style, drinks were okay, our server she was really great! Ambiance was beautiful inside, loud and a wind tunnel outside. If it was not so late I really would have went somewhere else. I don’t know I guess just expected better service and food for the price and energy. I would not go back again.

The food was outstanding. Everything was very good. We sat outside on the terrace which was incredibly noisy mainly from the road noise. Service was good. Food is "tapas style" and shared. I would have preferred that of the 10 dishes we ordered they arrive not all at once, but a little at a time, so as to be able to savour them...in this case, everything pretty much arrived at once, cluttering up the table, and creating a sense that we had to hurry. It is a simple thing to fix, but this little detail affected the meal.

Had a 8:45pm reservation but they still made us wait 20 minutes to be seated. Then we felt rushed to order food since last call for food and drinks was at 10pm. Waiter described the ribs as “fall apart tender” but they were tough and chewy. Waiter was very quick to get us another dish we preferred, however. Spicy edamame was the best dish, and could probably eat that everyday. Ambiance is nice being right across from the ocean, but I think because we had such a late reservation they weren’t too concerned with keeping the ambiance going for our reservation.

I went here with my husband on our last night in Fort Lauderdale. We had a great time. The food was really good and it was a super fun atmosphere. The music was really loud though. Could have been turned down a little. The outdoor seating on the patio overlooking the beach is really amazing. Worth checking out if you're in Fort Lauderdale.
