It was a great experience! Wasn't too busy when we went, although the waiter said it usually is busier on a Saturday evening. Quick, attentive service and good happy hour pricing and options. I just wish there were a few more specialty roll options on the happy hour menu. We tried to add one more roll at the end of our meal but the options were all too similar to ones we already ate, and the one the waiter recommended ended up not being that great.

Great lunch experience. Server and chefs flexible and gracious to allow us to order from the lunch menu at the cutoff time. Delicious food, friendly server and pleasant atmosphere!

Just not impressed with RA this visit. The reservation app was great and I loved being able to invite my friends. The service was terrible. Took 20 mins for tea, water and soda. Took about 20 to eat our food and another 20 waiting to get my card back. We were held hostage. 7pm on a Friday and at least 5 unruly screaming kids. And they are allowed to run in the restaurant? The one next to us had some lungs. Just don’t want to go back any time soon.

Ate with friends and we started with a Vegas Roll and Crispy calamari. Both were great. We had happy hour drinks that were also very good. We ordered Steak Teriyaki and Chicken Teriyaki as dinners and they were both OK but pricey. Overall, it was still worthwhile and we received GREAT service, which makes all the difference.

We went there for our daughters 8th birthday, she wanted sushi. Her brother, who is 5 and a picky eater, was able to even find something to eat there. They were so accommodating, the chefs sauteed up some plain shrimp in butter for him. Everyone was happy! Thank you for a great meal!

All of the rolls tasted the same. They brought our starters out with the rolls/entrees. Not much attention from server—continually had to ask for refills.

The waitress was clueless. We ordered an appetizer and 3 rolls and Ramen the appetizers me out third plate and the drink UP CHARGE is absurd. The rice on the sushi was like yesterday’s rice, being overly dry. Will probably never go back after a $130 disappointing meal.

We had a reservation for 6 people on a Friday night for a birthday celebration. We have been to this restaurant many times before and were never disappointed, but it had been over a year since our last visit. We were seated right away but at a table that was more appropriate for 4 people. The food was mediocare at best. The teriyaki chicken one person in our party ordered was rubbery and tough to chew. The waitress took it back and we asked for the salmon instead. It took at least 15 minutes for it to come out. The salmon was well-cooked and tasted fine but they put it on the same veggies and rice as the chicken had been on so they were now lukewarm. We also had sashimi. Although the salmon sashimi was good, the albacore was cut very thick and had alternated between fishy and flavorless. The halibut looked good but was flavorless and chewy. Finally, the server wasn’t very attentive and we had to track her down several times to place our order, get more drinks and water, etc. The restaurant was not even that busy, except for the bar. Not at all what we had expected, especially for the price.

This was the first time I ate an abundance of sushi and I was very impressed by the taste of different flavors. I was in and out in about 40 minutes so works great for a quick bite before going to see a movie. I will definitely come back for more sushi and drinks !

They forgot to get the wasabi that goes with the sushi. The chicken was overly blacked. The Coke machine was flat. They were out of the variety of tea that I wanted. I ordered ice cream and it took a two waiters and a really long time to get it. Service was sluggish on a not very busy day. I had to call the restaurant to ensure that they recorded my Open Table points. I feel like the place has really gone down hill.

Food and service were both unimpressive. Appetizers weren't good- calamari was WAY over-salted, and crab cake was mushy and tasted like it was made with cheap canned tuna. Sushi rolls had a good flavor, but were poorly rolled and kept falling apart when picked up with chop sticks. Server never checked back with us after food was delivered, to see if everything was OK. The place was surprisingly empty for a Saturday at 7pm, and they were sold out of more than half their dessert menu- including staples of mochi and green tea ice cream. Overpriced for lack of quality in their food.

Awful. Six people at lunch and every meal was brought out at a different time. Two peoples food took so long that the check was at the table before they even got their food. Had to send back a sushi roll because there was hair on one of the pieces. When I checked the bill, they were still going to charge for the hairy sushi roll until I said no. This was our third time having a business lunch here and each time has been worse than the time before.

The lunch bento boxes were excellent and very delish. All elements were fresh and flavorful including the miso soup, salad, vegetable tempura, salmon, even the bed of cabbage slaw under the dishes. Our waitress was very pleasant and let us know about the status when we were waiting a bit for our meals. Overall, we had a wonderful dining experience!

I was disappointed in both the service and the food. I ordered a hot green tea of which took 10 to 15 minutes to refill after asking numerous times. Also we had to ask for our teriyaki chicken dish a few times and also had to request silverware and soy sauce more than once. It was just overall a below par experience.

Made our "reservation" through Open Table 20 minutes prior to our arrival and when we came in, I said "I have a reservation" and the hostess replied, "yeah, you JUST made that so we're still getting your table ready." So after 10 minutes, we got sat down (at a table after I requested a booth), right next to the door that goes to the patio and all the cold air was pouring through the door. Our server was training a new server and she was so rushed, that we felt like she was trying to just it over with. Her trainee was wonderful and so delightful, but she almost made him try to rush our decisions. I typically love RA, but I guess I need to stay away on Friday nights.
