Absolutely a great experience! Came at 9 pm on Saturday and the place was packed. The service was the best and the food was amazing. Exceptional all the way around.

Their new menu is a bit different from their older one, but they were still able to make some of the ingredients from the older menu. Yellowtail tradito isn’t on your the menu but I asked, and they made it. The chicken thigh oyster is the bomb. The Robata and ramen actually is all great and you can find some great specialty rolls.

Delicious food, reasonable prices, loud but cool ambiance. Service wasn't great (host and servers didn't exude much friendliness), but overall a great meal.

We arrived literally 6 minimum late due to the lack of Valet parking. The host claimed they had given our table away, even though they had several open seats. I had to talk to manager who came to our rescue and gave us a table.

The food was amazing. I would recommend getting the cold sake shots, also the salmon belly sashimi, maybe steak skewer (it came from the kitchen on fire, literally 🔥). The sushi rolls were amazing as well. Definitely will be coming back!

The menu is somewhat intimidating, with a wide variety of choices, happy hour options, and daily specials, so the overall impression is something like tapas, Japanese style. We especially enjoyed the ramen and the Cali sunset roll. It gets pretty lively inside, so if you are taking someone you want to talk with, I'd recommend the outdoor seating.

my reservation was at 6pm. when I got there it was 5:45. They said I had to wait for there was no empty table. But while I was waiting, I saw that they had people who didn't make reservations. the reservation systems are not professional at all.

We ordered off the happy hour menu... it was all delicious!
The chicken wings and pork chashu are my favorites...along with crispy rice and spicy tuna and Sapporo on tap... perfection!

This is one of our favorite and regular restaurants we go to. Our experience this time was awful. The girl waiting on us made us feel like we we’re taking a test while she was taking our order. We had to ask other people for anything additional she checked on us once and the one time I asked her to put in an order for something else she told me to wait one second she did not seem to be very busy and we were very unhappy with our evening last night. We wanted to order dessert but she took so long to attend to us that we wanted to get out of the restaurant as quick as possible it was not a pleasant experience

One waitress and 3 food runners, service was very lazy. When the food runner dropped off the plate, they would either just leave it on the corner of the table or put it in front of the wrong person. Bad, loud club music playing the whole time. And the food was exceptionally bland for all dishes on all fronts. Must be under new Mgmt/chef; I won’t be back

The rolls were made loosely and would fall apart easily. The rolls were also too sweet.

Food was delicious! Everything was super high quality and fresh, and very tasty. The house cold sake was a good value and very smooth and light. Overall I would visit again, the service was excellent and we had a fantastic time. I recommend reservations, it got busy!

Really great dining experience mid week here. It was a nice summer night so we did the outdoor seating for two. The waiter suggested a sake flight (3 kinds) which I wasn't planning on doing but it was a really great addition to the dining experience. The food was really great, will definitely be going back. We tried about 6-7 different small plates and really, they all were excellent.

The ultimate issue is noise. Why does a restaurant attempting to generate a sense of nourishment, over stimulate the senses with a pounding sound?
