Sushi was the best part of the meal, the Caesar salad and arugula salad were both odd tasting. Drinks were Ok, very creative but a little off. We would try again but stick to simple things.

The food here was great, we got short ribs, shrimp & vegetables and a dynamite roll. All delicious including our drinks! Overall I would come back because the food and location were very good. It was a little short staff but where isn’t nowadays

The food and drinks were delicious. The service was mediocre at best. We brought our own bottle of champagne, for which there is a very reasonable corking fee. The problem is, they took forever to chill it and then open it. Also, I’m not sure if they were short staffed or not, but it was very rare that our server checked on us. Honestly, it was almost as if she was ignoring us. We were always waiting and waiting and waiting. There were other servers and staff members who were much more helpful. Of course, once we produced a credit card to pay, she was there in a flash and very quickly closed us out.

This was pretty disappointing, considering the high rating. I would recommend going here for the ocean view and maybe the drinks, but the food was mediocre (not worth the price in my opinion) and our waiter kept clearing the table before we were done, as if he was rushing us out. Won’t be going back.

Server was excellent! He preemptively warned us about the time it’ll take to have the sushi made and recommend ordering some appetizers.

The drinks were excellent, sushi fresh and tasty and menu fairly priced!! I’ll definitely go back 🥰

Great location, right across the street from the beach. Drinks were great and the food was very good. I deducted one star because they were out of several items on the menu - on a Friday at lunchtime. The overall experience was very good.

Don’t ruin a good thing. They smartened up and switched their octopus back to the way used to be with the gigande beans!! It’s the best. Now they just need to switch the cauliflower back. The miso junk is awful!

It’s a very nice place with friendly and professional service and great food. At the same time pricing is fair, specially considering that it’s in fact a hotel restaurant.

Honestly, we loved the place we love the vibe but not too much from our server Lamia the food was okay but what wasn’t okay was the fact that one of us had a steak and was asked how we want it. If we couldn’t get it how we we’re asked then what’s the point, she asked if we wanted to take it back to be cooked well done like we asked before we said yes. Got the plate again and it was still red she took the plate and asked for the third time did we want to get it cooked again ummm no thank you just take it off our bill. She didn’t handle that too well wasn’t to apologetic. She looked like she was ready to go home customer service goes a long way idk if she sees this but when you do a job you do it 100 idk what it was that night but we weren’t to fond of her, she didn’t even ask if we wanted to split the bill she just gave it to us in one receipt, like how you know we wanted to do that? at this point it didn’t even matter anymore we were over it. We will definitely come back but wouldn’t want her as a server, it’s very beautiful in there very much a vibe I hope you don’t do that with everybody sweetheart…

Unfortunately this was one of our most disappointing dining experiences. We live in the area and come here often. We had a horrible meal & kitchen was in shambles - we found out after we waited an hour for 4 mushy gross sushi rolls that their main sushi chef was out & had only 2 of 5 working the sushi kitchen- they should have told us before our order- the meal was a fiasco from the time we sat (no text received & had to keep asking if our table was ready) until 2 hours later when the soggy sushi arrived. We were so ready to walk out so many times. The manager Glen was very helpful- but they should have told us up front about kitchen issues - not so sure we will be back & big shame on them for even serving the quality of food that was served to us last night feel sorry for all tourists expecting a good meal here. If they don’t have right sushi chefs don’t serve sushi (which is more than half of their menu) we were also celebrating a birthday dinner - which was noted in the reservation & was totally ignored - though we wouldn’t have waited another minute for any dessert to be brought.

Service was extremely slow but likely due to COVID's impact on maintaining an adequate number of staff. The food, especially sushi, was fresh and delicious-- well worth the wait! Fun environment for indoor or outdoor dining.

At this price point, my expectations for service expected better brands to be offered. Waiter missed part of our drink order and never collected the menus after ordering. Our food arrived cold, we sent it back. They placed it in a warmer, and returned the food to us lukewarm. It was was just one thing after another. Very unimpressive. Bummer too as we were really looking forward to it.

Our server was excellent…very friendly and prompt. The ambience is very nice…we sat outside facing the ocean. Unfortunately the food is nothing special. The best part of our meal was a sushi roll we ordered as an appetizer. Cocktails, entrees and desert were all disappointing. Beautiful place though!
