It was a much needed date night (been married almost 13 years) and the food was amazing. Our server made it even better, he was attentive, helpful and had such a positive attitude. I appreciate good service. The taste of the food is flavorful and hearty. We ordered the chocolate soufflé and it was amazing, perfect way to end our meal. I don’t know another restaurant that can top this dessert.

We were very unimpressed by this restaurant.
Inside was very basic and casual.
The food- not great at all. Steak over done. Too much sauce on steak. Seafood very average and not flavorful.
We will not be going back.

Great service with one exception. Mentioned we were there for a special birthday and…….nothing.
Food was good though the poke was very salty.
Sat outside traffic noise was high but that’s not their fault.
All in all just an ok experience.

We tried two items off the chef menu, the calamari and the Burramundi. Both were delicious. We also tried two of the sushi rolls. They were tasty but had too much rice, that over powered the fillings.

The butterfish misoyaki was a sugary mess and almost inedible. Sugar marinade, sugar black rice, and sweet wasabi sauce spilling over into a now sweet vegetable lump. I almost got a cavity just looking at it. They should call it the candied fish plate.

Other than that, I think Mrs. Lincoln enjoyed the play.

We did have to wait a bit in spite of having a reservation. We do not mind that as we sat at the bar. Drink took a bit to get, but they are super busy. Drinks were delicious!

Service was great. Very Professional. Food was outstanding!
Lighting was perfect. Were sat near kitchen which was not perfect but all in all we definitely would go back!

Everything was delicious and our server was very attentive and made good suggestions. Noise level was higher than we would have liked but possibly because the restaurant was full and there were also kids speaking loudly.

Made a reservation on open table for “outside” which was an option and was one of the main reasons we decided to go and celebrate my husband’s birthday. I know the patio as we have dined there before. Due to Covid this was our first time going out to dine expecting to be outside, but when we got there we were told that the patio will not be open until October. I was very disappointed as I did not have time to make any other reservation that evening at other restaurants. Not sure who dropped the ball, Open Table or Roy’s, but we were led to believe on the patio was available.

We went there for restaurant week and were disappointed. The food was underwhelming. We both had the Misoyaki Butterfish which was good but the Beef Short Ribs were a pale grey color and lacked seasoning. Some gravy would've been nice with the Short Ribs. We've been to the Palm Springs and Roy's Woodland Hills in Los Angeles locations and this one was very disappointing.

Lobster bisque was very late arriving and had a skin on top to prove it. Temperature was way below expectations for a bisque. After asking the server where the lobster was, he brought me a fresh bowl with hearty chunks with no skin or temperature problem. He was also working a large party in the next room, so obviously very busy. He came back once empty handed after we waited quite a while for Restaurant week menus. I wished I knew it was online. The fish was incredible! Stole the show. I had butterfish, my wife had salmon. Black rice was great, white rice plain. Desserts were decadent and filling.

Anniversary celebration.
They had a cute card and flowers on the table super nice.
Then the appetizer took forever.
Then had sesame seeds so they took it away after we had waited so long, so hungry. (Sesame seed and tree nut allergy)
Then they brought back the appetizer on the original plate without the ribs and sushi roll those had the sesame seeds.
(Should have used a new plate for no cross contamination)
Then the food followed and that took a long time.
Something was bitter in the mai tai and that may have been what made us both not feel too good after.

1st time to this restaurant, and I have to say it is not worth the price of the food. I ordered the CK Katsu, and the chicken was good but the rice was burnt. The coleslaw that came with it was very dry as well. The plate was not worth the $44 I know the deal was part of restaurant week but the lobster bisque I had for the appetizer was not very warm as well. Overall I expected more for the price. Not sure I would want to go back, it’s a shame.

We came to celebrate a family birthday. The food was outstanding as always. We started with appetizers of the tempura sushi and tempura shrimp. Both were polished off lightning quick! I had the butter scallops, hubby had the classic combo, one daughter had the mahi mahi and the other the shrimp udon. The shrimp udon was amazing! Intense flavors and everything cooked perfectly.
They took our picture too as a memory of the special day.
Definitely will be back.
