What a fantastic meal! Some of the best service and quality I've had in a long time. The sashimi was some of the freshest I've ever eaten, including places that charge substantially more. I was really impressed, both by the food and the staff, who were incredibly attentive and sweet.

More of a lounge than a restaurant. Loud and bustling. Tables very close and cramped. Food is reasonably good, though the flavor palette is repetitive. Probably good for a group of friends for drinks and a few small bites. Not a god spot if you want a sit down meal.

We were treated as if we did not have reservations. Despite being a two person party or a 5 person party, it’s not fair to be seated on the street just because you are a two person party. It was very devastating to hear that even though we had reservations and were on time, in order to sit in the immediate outside patio, we would have to wait an hour. The service was horrible and the food wasn’t that amazing.

I’m not sure why they would let you make a reservation for 10 pm when they close the kitchen at 10:30 and then close at 11. I go there for my birthday and then kicked out 20 mins of being there. The server was obviously annoyed that we were showing up an hour before close and wasn’t very nice but I assumed their closing time was much later due to reservations going til 10 pm clearly not. So maybe don’t allow late reservations if your going to kick us out anyway!

Great Experience. Busy and fun atmosphere but professional and friendly service. Hostess was especially great and accommodating and handled a big crowd at the door expertly. Our server was also very good. Food was not anything too out of the ordinary but everything was good and the fish tasted fresh. The patio is very charming and comfortable and makes for a very nice dinner. Everyone in our group loved it and will definitely return.

Good local sushi. Portion size size of Miso Cod was microscopically small for $30+ but it’s really delicious. Everyone working there is friendly and attentive. Prawns in grilled “Hub” tasty but not deveined. The crispy rice is very good but can occasionally be a little oily.

It was freezing. Everyone had their jackets and hats on.
Couple off oysters but the sake was good and the sashimi
Good
The baked crab roll was pretty tasteless, skip that one
Salmon sashimi was great
Crispy rice original and 2.0 was great

Sadly I will probably never return to this restaurant. The food was excellent and the outdoor patio was lovely. However, the staff was completely unwelcoming.

As we were seated, our party of 3 (a birthday dinner for my friend) was informed by 3 different staff members that they have a strict 90 minutes per table policy. We were informed that the staff would start a timer the moment we sat down and we would need to leave after 90 minutes. I am a rule follower, and wanted to be respectful of their rules, so I tracked our remaining time throughout our meal.

In spite of our tight timeline, the waiter assigned to our table did not come to take our drink order for the first 20 minutes we were seated. That left us only 70 minutes to receive our order and enjoy our (expensive) meal and drinks.

Once we were allowed to order, our food came out promptly. The food was beautiful and delicious. We spent many of our allotted 90 minutes enjoying the lovely food. The drinks came out slightly after our food but they were also delicious. The waiter did not come by to ask if we would like anything else or check on us in any way during that time.

We would have liked to order a second round of drinks and birthday dessert for my friend. However, by the time we finished our meal, we had only 17 minutes left of our allotted 90 minutes, according to my calculations.

Because we had been told that we would be forced to leave our table after 90 minutes, we chose to use the remaining time to track down our waiter, ask for the check, and quickly use the restroom before strolling down the street to another restaurant willing to serve us dessert without setting a clock on our evening.
