    The waitress was nice , and the place was good but the food was like a sushi random place, no one dish to repeat or fish quality. My expectations were high in comparación with what I found.I am sorry but the need to improve the quality of the food to repeat or recommend.

    We didn’t get our food we ordered because the server forgot to put the order in, when we asked her after waiting 30 minutes she finally put in the order. Then when we actually got our food it was incorrect so we tried to have our order corrected and were told they could do nothing about it because it was closing. After a lot of convincing we finally got only the incorrect portion of the meal refunded upon our request and the manager tried to take our food to go back from us and responded “I’m going to eat this for dinner”. We were in complete disbelief.

    Beautiful sexy restaurant. Food is excellent and creative so definitly should be on your list. It is pricy but the food is very interesting and creative - this is not the place for a big bowl of noodles and cheap ingredients. Everything is fresh and tasty. Friendly staff that looked overworked or unedrstaffed for my Wednesday night meal. I don't think they expected the post-holiday crowds but they got through it with a smile. One of my dishes should have been served hotter (crispy brussel sprouts) but the flavor helped make up for the fact that it sat in kitchen too long before being served.

    Horrible experience! Our entree was given to the table next to us and then the restaurant ran out of our food. We got half the food delivered to our table in 90 minutes. When we brought it to the manager’s attention, he charged us for what we ate (plus 20% gratuity) and refused to do anything. Hands down the worst service and no attempt to rectify it. We left hungry. Stay away.

    I've got to say, I've been here a couple of times and have always had an amazing experience/ time. However, yesterday, we were sat right next to the bear so I was thinking we were going to have a great experience.. not so much. For whatever the reason, our server kept disappearing. Mind you, there were a couple of people in and outside of the restaurant so I wasn't thinking too much into it until the table in front of me (arrived way later that we did) and the side tables (also arrived later than we did) all got attended and served their drinks/apps before we even had our drinks hit the table (which was after 30 minutes of us sitting down). I've got to say, I was pretty let down because it was my husbands birthday celebration and it wasn't what I thought it would be.

    We happened upon Tanuki on Open Table because my son wanted Sushi. When we arrived they presented the Happy Hour menu which was an incredible value. We ate some of the best sushi rolls we’ve ever eaten anywhere as well as two cocktails and two beers for a great price. The crispy rice dish was amazing!!! The atmosphere was quiet and laid back with families and couples all enjoying their meals. We would definitely come back to enjoy another great meal!

    We are regulars at this restaurant, and this time we experienced 3 issues unlike times in the past. The hostess refused to give us a booth by saying all booths are reserved when requested by me, however when my husband asked for it, she took us to a booth. While we appreciated we got a bigger table in a booth as we order a lot and the first table offered in the middle of dining room was too small to use for us, she should not say all booths are reserved when they are not in fact and deny our initial request to be moved to a booth as we are regulars and there were many booths open. Secondly, Sushi rice is not in a tight form of nigiri. Rice falls apart when picked up from a plate. Sushi chefs need to do proper nigiri. (I’m a Japanese, so I know how tightly sushi rice needs to be formed in a hand.) Cooked veggies on side of skirt steak was way too salty to consume. Cooks in the back need to check salt amount. We could not eat it. Lastly, we didn’t get chicken fried rice that we ordered at the end. There were these small yet multiple mishaps this time that we noticed and thought should be pointed out for better improvement of the restaurant.

    Menu was large. Sushi rolls don’t have any options of creative rolls (they are more the basic types) but enjoyed them, the raw apps, dim sum, bao, and entree. The ramen was strange and too curry flavored. Nice ambiance and decor inside.

    Derek was my server this tall white guy with glasses that say Fendi on them. I had a terrible experience with him, I called him over a few times, and he ignored me most of the time. There was a white couple across our table that he was also attending, and he visited them way more often, and they got here after us. I was getting irritated because he just kept ignoring our table. He also kept rushing us, and kept trying force us to have drinks… Almost as if he was trying to sell us drinks. He was really unprofessional and gave the entire table a very uncomfortable vibe. It was my best friends birthday and she made it. It’s so weird and uncomfortable to eat there. I was extremely stressed because I had a lot going on that day so I didn’t have the time to call him out or talk to the manager. I’m not sure what to do with this information but hopefully in the future they can help someone.
