    Mediocre tasting food for the price. Some things on the tasting menu were special but unfortunately a lot of it was things you could get at any restaurant.

    For 65 per person, the food was sub par, or worse. The heirloom tomatoes were just beefsteak tomatoes? Nothing stood out in the 4 appetizers. The “chuck steak” was not palatable; it had no beef taste, and the texture was oddly sandy.

    Went for lunch and the food was amazing! I had the pork belly and crack rice which had the perfect level of spice. The bowls were incredibly filling so it was well worth the value. The staff were very accommodating to our group of 6.

    The omakase was not worthy of its value except for the tuna salad. Taste and ingredients were underwhelming. Needs to up the game with food! However the dessert cheesecake and drinks were amazing.

    Great food. We shared three a la crate dishes- which was way more than enough for the two of us. The servings were quite generous. The food was fresh and very tasty. They excel with their salads. We had the Brussel sprout with cauliflower salad, as well as the Magic mushroom - both were excellent. The Three cup chicken tasted great, but some of it was a bit on the rubbery side. Overall, a great experience

    I went for went for a date night with my wife. We chose of the menu and first dish arrived and was great. Next dish that was described on the menu as soy soaked potato was served cold. There was no mentioned on the menu it was a cold dish and if it had been pointed out we would not have ordered it. We did not eat the dish and the server apologized for the miscommunication but did not remove the dish from the bill. Next there was a chicken dish. When this arrives it was leaking blood from the bone in the leg. I pointed this out to the server and she explained it was sous vide chicken and was meant to be like that. Again no mention on the menu and I was unable to eat it due to its appearance and texture. Again we were charged for it. Cocktails were great but probably won’t return

    Enjoyed dining here two days in a row. Salad was good. I felt the pork belly and fried chicken had too much sauce on it. The second day, I had the smoked mackerel and enjoy that the most of any dish I had there. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant.

    The Asian Fusion is perfect. We had delicious bowls with rice, crack salad, pork in one, chicken in the other, and poached eggs. The bowls were large, beautiful and scrumptious. we shared a basque burnt cheese cake, tasting well carmelized and creamy. It came with rhubarb compote and is worth its own trip. Service is professional, friendly, knowledgable and at lunch there was no attempt to push drinks. However, an earlier trip showed that the fresh fruit juice cocktails are just great. I highly recommend this restaurant. It is spotless, comfortable, well ventilated, acrylic separations are at every place, and Covid Masking is in effect.

    Good food. Disappointing that the bartender doesn't work until 3pm. Service is slow but to be fair, she was the only server and we weren't in a rush. Best Beef Noodle Soup ever. All the food was very tasty.

    Here with a group of 5 on vacation. Ordered the kaiseki menu and it was fantastic. Had the ahi, potatoes, and lamb for the main courses. Delicious. Appetizers were great - kale salad was perfect. Desserts were enough for more than 5 of us. Cocktails all great too.
