Not sure how they can allow smoking in the outdoor dining area. I thought all bars and restaurants were smoke free. And EVERYONE sitting outside was smoking. We had to move inside and could not enjoy the nice summer night.

Food was fantastic I was just disappointed with the cocktail menu, I felt they should've had more specialty cocktails for being a bar, and the size of the drinks for the money was disappointing. Four sips and my $12 rum cocktail was gone.
Ambience was good for new years eve dinner.

Not a good experience. The waitress kept attempting to take the foods away while we were still eating. Martini's were supposed to be half price on Weds; I even confirmed with the waitress but the bill came out full price which I didn't notice until I got home.

A great place to enjoy quality sushi and japanese food with friends! We went for an anniversary and had a wonderful time - the staff was so kind and the food was delicious. The best part was 1/2 priced martinis on Wednesdays! We will definitely be back.

I'm not a big sushi eater. My brother selected the restaurant and did allof the ordering.
We had a couple of appetizers and two different kinds of rolls. Whatever they were, they were very good.

The place was totally closed and deserted when we got there. Even though Open table allowed us to make a reservation. I would suggest call and make a reservation and not use OPEN TABLE.
We couldn't find a place that would take us for my sisters birthday after that :( Ruined our whole night.

The food and service were fantastic, although the prices are higher than expected (for the amount of food) in comparison to some similar venues. We will be back, but it's outside the price point for a "regular" family restaurant.

We had the sweet and sour chicken. Not coated in that artificial red thick stuff--it was light and yummy!
My sashimi arrived frozen. But was of good quality.
I love the DJ in the background and the fabulous bartender.

Looks are deceiving. I've passed this restaurant hundreds of times. It's very unassuming from the outside. But once you step inside, the atmosphere envelopes you and the culinary adventure begins. Everything about this restaurant makes you want to return . . . sooner rather than later! Is twice in a week too soon?

Unfortunately, i have to give a bad review. I've patronized this restaurant many times and the food & service was always great the general mgr Matthew always goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. HOWEVER, I was there for customer appreciation on nov 6 the food and specialty cocktails were 1/2 off and the food was terrible im assuming it was because it was 1/2 off HOWEVER i would rather pay full price than to receive unacceptable food. We were. A group of 5 we ordered 3 orders of lobster taco they were really salty we couldn't eat them so we sent them back and they had NO Lobster in them.we had other food everything was terrible. Also, the bill was $180 plus tax and gratuity of $70 i asked Matthew why was gratuity so much on he said it was based off of full price which would of been $360 ish so you offer 1/2 menu, terrible food but base gratutity off full price ABSOLUTELY NOT ACCEPTABLE!! HOWEVER, Matthew tried to make good he adjusted the bill he took off $26 which still didnt compensate for being overcharged in gratutity . I was totally disgusted because I feel like we were ripped off i won't be returning because i dont like being taken advantage of I called Matthew the following day and he was rude & he said they had a disclaimer via mail and online that the gratuity would be based off of full. I didnt receive mailer or saw disclaimer online FURTHERMORE , Matthew said the waitress can't work hard and receive smaller gratuity and it would be unfair because they work off tips. Consequently, i won't patronize this establishment again .Debbie Sanders

We have eaten here many times but this is my first review. Food, service, atmosphere… all excellent! We had the boneless sparerib wraps, several different kinds of sushi, the Totowa roll (customized for my sister who can’t do spicy) and the Teriyaki Hibachi. Everything was so good! Our server was the epitome of how service should be. We ate early so we didn’t get to experience the DJ but it looks like it would be a great time!

Been there twice, both times the food was great!
A little steep on the beer prices, but well worth it overall.

Good music in the backround, nice ambiance. Two thumbs up!
