First all the drinks are amazing and the bartenders are quite friendly and funny. The sashimi and sushi as so fresh and very tasty. A bit pricey but well worth it. I would definitely go back and also recommend. 🙂

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.

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.

It was very easy to setup a reservation and one of my favorite things was the house ramen, miso soup and the service. They are bilingual and very attentive. I'm from orange county and it was definitely worth the drive

Great views but the food was really sub-standard. The sushi tasted like what you would buy in a grocery store in a plastic to-go container, but much, much more expensive. Partner and I both had bento box. The sob noodle salad was almost all romaine lettuce, no noodles. The seaweed salad was meh. Same with the miso soup (not much flavor). The uni sushi we ordered on the side tasted as if it had gone bad, and the other sushi was old. The hostess at the front desk may have been new- she had trouble dealing with 2 parties arriving at the same time. Waitress was fantastic, but the view and service could not make up for the poor quality of the food. Sorry

At the first time, it was difficult to find the entrance of the building, but the view from this restaurant floor was beautiful.

We had a much better server this time. She gave a lil intro about the restaurant what they are n locations. She also let us know food is on its way. Saw my water glass is low & swap it out. Gave my parents a free dessert due to their Anniversary. That was sweet! She made the service great, but disappointed with food presentation! It lacked cleanliness n detail. Plating was horrific!!! My 1st visit was better then my 2nd. Sushi rolls were ineven cuts. Just bc you are busy don't mean you serve unpleasant looking dishes. Especially when they are double charging & barely rice on it. I am embarrassed sushi line chef.

Food was good, not great! If you have 2+ hours for lunch then this is the place for you. Everything takes forever. Food, drinks, dessert, and the check.... The part I didn't understand was that the restaurant wasn't even that packed. But you will be waiting for everything.

I’ve been here a couple times but I guess I haven’t been here in a while and it seems like they changed up the Ahi Tuna they once had :( it used to be so goooooooooooooood! It was pretty bad this time. But the apps and dessert were really good and sushi is average, not mind blowing. Still a pretty good experience.
