Not happy the menu of web site and open table is nothing like what they actually office. All the hot foods are gone form the menu. Of the six of us, two do not eat sushi. The staff had no answer on why web site was never updated.

The sushi was great, wine selection not so much. But above all, we were disappointed in the service. The waitress just walked up to us, not even making eye contact and just said "Are you ready". No hello or anything, which I thought was odd. Then we proceeded to wait an hour for any of the food. She came by and apologized but never offered a drink on the house or any sort of compensation for waiting way too long for food. I get sometimes you get backed up or find yourself understaffed and I'm usually very patient when that happens, but at least offer your customers that are feeling the most pain of it some sort of food/drink/monetary "sorry for your troubles".

Zento was a most enjoyable sushi experience. Service was pleasant though a little slow. The sushi & saki were excellent.

The place looks very nice, the service is average, the food is just OK and all of it is way overpriced.. Will never come back and would not recommend to anyone.

My husband and I wanted Sushi for our 1 month wedding anniversary. Love this new hidden treasure we found in our neighborhood. The sushi was amazing and the shrimp dumplings.

Cool cozy, scenery with great food choices. Taste great! Double check before you go to see if they received their liquor license. Sign says “& Sake Bar” but we needed to BYOB.

The ginger dressing salad and the seaweed salad were perfect. The sushi was delicious and was made very quickly. And the mochi was nicely made and sliced because we were splitting it.
