The food here was outstanding and creative. I don't like mayo, and sometimes sushi restaurants can be difficult about making accommodations if the food is premade, but everything I selected, they modified and made absolutely scrumptious. It was fresh and the presentation was beautiful. Everyone from the hostess to the bussers were friendly and my drink never went unfilled. Can't wait to go back!

Food was great! Service was good until it came to paying. We were presented with an electronic device to process our payment. Then the server disappeared and wasn’t there to help when we encountered problems with it. It felt like a very rude and impersonal payment system. Like the self check-out aisle in a supermarket, except this is supposed to be a nice restaurant, not Vons or CVS. I expected full service based on the price I paid for lunch.

A lovely place plagued with poor service, sadly.

I came in on a Wednesday night with a large group. Service was so slow that, after waiting 20 minutes for drinks, we were presented with the check. I had to call the waitress back to see about those drinks.

After continued slow service, I informed the manager on duty that the evening was a special celebration and that we might need a bit more attention. The waitress proceeded to then avoid the table and eye contact. I had to wave my beckon vigorously so she would stop pretending she couldn't meet my gaze. I know waiters hate that. Nobody wants to be "that guy," but the situation seemed to call for just that.

I've been to this spot three times in the past three years... It's hit or miss, I suppose.

Oh, and for your happy hour menu: Add a whiskey/bourbon-based drink. Kind of bizarre that there wasn't at least one.

This was my third visit, and another business dinner. The vibe here is laid back, the staff are great at recommending (thank you Rebecca!) and the food is awesome. Great views of course, and just a great place to eat and chill out.

Great service, not a long wait after ordering food which was delicious, beautiful view of city (dependent on seating), although there were many people dining in, it was never so loud that I couldn’t hear the person talking to me seated the furthest away. Great choice for business meal and special occasion (e.g. Birthday lunch).

While the atmosphere was very nice and the service was good, I thought the food was only ok. We had rock shrimp tempura, where the sauce was not as good as most places, and robata lamb chops, where the chops were scrawny. The sashimi was average.

A friend told me to go to this restaurant but I was really underwhelmed. We were told to seat outside but it was too cold and the heaters didn't help us because we were sitting on the wrong side. I wouldn't return to this location but it was ok one time experience.
