    Service was slow and there was confusion about who are waitperson actually was. Food came out at separate times despite ordering everything at the same time. This was inconvenient for a party of four, especially with children in tow. Overall, food was delicious. I would recommend this place if you have some time to sit around and wait for food and aren’t bothered by having to flag waitstaff down for refills on water, etc.

    Menu was food-stained; wineglass was not pristine. Garbage cans had not been taken inside and obscured sidewalk view (we ate outdoors). All three of our dishes were well-seasoned but poorly executed: the "crispy" cauliflower was sodden; the duck wraps were both greasy and dry, and the soba noodles with chicken were just sad. Yuzu cocktail was perfection, however. And both the hostess and the server were excellent.

    I've eaten here before and it's been fine, but maybe the kitchen was off and the wait staff was overwhelmed? Lousy service, mediocre food, couldn't get the bill when we were ready to leave, etc. All in all, an expensive night for little food and frustrating service.

    Our server left after taking our order. We had inconsistent service and no one ever took over for our table. Beautiful ambiance and excellent food. We loved the gyoza and chicken pad Thai. The drinks were also excellent. We had kirin light and old fashioneds. The bar tender was so kind and helpful.

    The hosts were accommodating to our team and led us to an upstairs room for our large party. The inside is beautiful, the food was average, but the service was awful. 2 members of our party did not get food when the rest of the people did, which is unacceptable. After a 2 1/2 hour dinner one entree came out with the bill. The drinks were also slow, and it seemed they only had one bartender. They offered free desserts to compensate for the lousy service, but we didn't want to wait any longer. I would not recommend big parties; it might be better for smaller groups or couples only.

    Great food, service was a little slow, but we had to get back to work so was in a bit of a rush. Had a lot of fun, and when we booked, they had the option for a free sake bomb - so great for a team lunch.

    Such a great place to eat! The ambiance upstairs is amazing near the cherry blossom trees and the food is so good. The chili shrimp ramen was so tasty. We booked through open table so we got the free sake bombs and Felix helped make the meal even better by being so sweet and fun.

    The server messed up the reservations. Gave the reservation to another table and then tried to blame me for the mistake. Tried to give us a table away from where they promised (near cherry blossom). Overwhelmed at the kitchen. Served food over a course of 2 hours with slow trickle. No one served at the same time. Had to wait so long we started eating without waiting for others to have food at the table bc dishes started to get cold. Ruined a birthday dinner.

    It was an average/mediocre experience. It took a long time to get our order, which did not seem justifiable since it was not busy or crowded at all. I think the cleanliness can also use an improvement. Our table and the floor felt a bit sticky and the air in the restaurant smelled like old oil. I would recommend on basis of the food, which was great, but the atmosphere can use improvement.

    Came for mother's day and loved the environment. The food was really good and reasonably priced. Our waiter was nice. There was a slight wait to order but understandable since it was mother's day. My only complaint was when another server came with our food, she placed our utensils on the table. Not in a napkin, not in some type of cover. Just on the table. The table was clean except for one sticky stain left behind so it was a bit bothersome receiving my utensils in that manner. Aside from that, I enjoyed my time

    We went here for a Mother's Day lunch. Our waiter was a nice guy but a terrible waiter. We were seated in an area upstairs that was lovely but isolated from all the other diners. As a result, no-one took our order for ages. When I went over to tell a waiter we were ready to order, it still took them 10 minutes to come to the table. After we finally ordered, the two appetizers and three main dishes were all served at different times. One main course, then one appetizer. Another main course, then another appetizer. FINALLY, my wife's main showed up about 45 minutes after the first dish was served. Don't even get me started on how long it took to get a bottle of sparkling water. We finished eating and had to go get the waiter to give us our check, about 20 minutes after we were done eating. In short, this restaurant was a train wreck. Don't think I would ever go there again and neither should you.
