As always the food was delicious. Sushi was excellent and always wells presented and the non-sushi items were very tasty as well. With the virus situation the seating was very well spaced out which makes the atmosphere not quite what it could be but that is to be expected as we manage our way thru this situation. The staff and the service was excellent all the way thru the meal.
One of my favorite restaurants that always manages to hit it out of the park!

App and salad came out at the exact same time. Dinner came out while we were finishing salad. Entrees were not good. Server was clearly overwhelmed. I feel badly for even patronizing the place during Covid. Maybe we should just stay home and not have expectations.

Food was bland and not quite mediocre. Menu items looked good but execution moderate at best. Across the board, from a dry piece of sushi to tempura with soft and mushy veges inside to rice noodles piled on top of each other so the dish was more like a bowl of lumpy pasta. Wait staff also mediocre. Spilled bottle of Pellegrino, which is no big deal, it was the response. Lots of sorry, no napkins, no offer of new bottle, water in a main dish. We let it go since we were already disappointed. Two final comments. First seated outdoors next to a lovely birch...with glue strips wrapped around it to catch the dreaded Japanese lantern fly, so we would have been treated to watching them writhing around 5 feet away. Asked to move. Took too long. Next couple they tried seating there? Same result. Nice evening out with my wife, pretty lame dining experience.

Food was excellent as always. Love the wine selection. Ambiance sometimes gets noisy and the lighting is a little dark for my taste but still a beautiful setting. Wait staff is wonderful as always!

The food and drinks were phenomenal. Everything was perfectly seasoned, cooked, and plated beautifully. Service however was pretty bad. It’s was not busy enough to warrant how slow service was. We were seated near the bar and when we ordered drinks we could see the bartender put the drinks up and watch them sit there while we watched the server simply walk around the restaurant not doing anything. Dessert was pretty decent except for the fact that they were out of 3 choices. The chocolate fondue, the soufflé, and the fried ice cream. I settled for the banana bread pudding but I waited a very long time for it and when I took a bite the bottom was warm but the top was cold and the ice cream that was on a side dish was half melted. The only thing that came quickly was the check. Very disappointed in my experience.

We were promptly seated outside late afternoon far away from any road noise and were treated to some of the best sushi that we ever had. Although it was a little pricey the quality was well worth it. Our waiter Derek was very capable and friendly.

We came here for my birthday and I was blown away. Our server was amazing and very accommodating. He even brought out a special dessert for my birthday which he didn’t have to do at all! The food was stellar. I will 1000% be coming back here again!

First time there. Have driven past this spot hundreds of times but never went until tonight. Absolute mistake on my part. This place is amazing! Food, cocktails, and service was top notch. Even during this crazy time, they had customers spaced out correctly and all of their staff were wearing masks. If you are in the mood for great food, make sure to check this spot out

We sat outside on the patio side of the restaurant. The east side is the deck. Both looked great. Our favorite parts were the menu and the food. Their version of Chilean Sea Bass with a hint of orange flavor was outstanding. The kobe hot rock dish was also well done. The sushi was great with ample signature rolls. The cocktails were well done. I ran with the Tokyo Manhattan. "You're damn right it was a good day. Oooh wow."

I am a big fan of the tuna lovers entrée & the octopus salad. Our neighbors and my wife do this every couple of weeks. They are big fans of the Peking Duck. Always a pleasant spot with excellent food.

The overall experience was very good. The only thing I did not like is that the food that was supposed to be hot was barely warm. Coffee was warm too. Belgian waffles were cooked right in front of you. They were really good with fresh strawberries and syrup.
