The porkloin was overcooked and tasteless. The only saving grace was the brussel sprouts. Finally, the plating was not presentable. Very disappointing for an entree at nearly $30.

Kylie was great! (I think that’s her name) Awesome service & personality! Food was awesome as well. Only negative is the hostess, she was either having a bad day or don’t like her job! I’ve never have a restaurant call me because I was running and say you need to hurry up! In the nastiest tone of voice ever smh the polite way to say it was you have this amount of time left before we have to cancel your reservation.

Really nice food options. Our group ordered a variety of items and then shared and LOVED everything except the burgers (which were overcooked, otherwise they would have also been good). The house sangria was delicious. Fun place to eat with friends!

Note to self: Never eat at a sushi restaurant when you’re the only customer!

Only customers in the restaurant during Friday lunch (big red flag). Had to pull over the find a rest room during the drive home.

Wait staff was good/attentive. Good food presentation. Overpriced…especially for the food quality.

Sorry, but not a place to bring business customers.

Great location, great staff, but the food is honestly missing something. The chicken lacked seasoning and under cooked. The shrimp and grits had just as much if not more tomatoes and onions than actually shrimp and grits. The sushi was very good, the location was great, great staff, but the food was the only issue.

Promptly seated upon going in. It was pretty empty to start for 8 pm on a Friday night. It did pick up a little over the next hour. I was sat next to a table of 12 which was very noisy. Couldn't hardly hear the music over them all. I went for Downtown Dineout which they participated in. They had posters advertising it on the doors and postcard size advertisements at the hostess desk, yet had to ask the server specifically for the Dineout menu to be brought.

I did the 3-course special. It had 3 apps, 3 entrees, and 2 desserts to pick from. I chose chicken potstickers, the bistro steak with fries, and Madagascar vanilla creme brulee. The potstickers were nice and crispy and just the right amount of sauce. The steak was over seasoned and a little too salty. I was not asked how I wanted it cooked, it definitely had some char on the outside and still slightly pink on the inside. The jus gravy was really nice. The fries were good and crispy. I'm sure asparagus was used to feel fancy, just not a fan of it. The creme brulee was just normal, did not taste any vanilla and was thick. The sugar shell was nice and thin and cracked just right with the spoon. All in all, just need to go a little easier on the steak seasoning, especially if having a app with a sauce that is salty and having a side of fries which is salted as well.

They close between 4-5pm. We arrived at 4:55pm and they made us wait be seated even though there was no one else there and employees were just standing around talking. We had a reservation for my friends birthday, lackluster experience. Drinks were okay, Sushi not so much.

The green fried tomatoes, the drinks and the overall atmosphere was good and relaxing. The food was not good to us had to send my California rolls back. The salmon was small the food didn't mean equal up to the quality that the price on my bill would have suggested. The waiter Leonardo was ok though I think he was a bit dismissive when he didn’t know the answers about the menu.

Wonderful meal. We had a party of 6, and we shared a big plate of sushi along a couple hot appetizers. They were all excellent, especially the spider roll. I had the steak as the main course that was cooked just perfect. Several people had the salmon and loved it. The service was friendly and prompt. Definitely would recommend.

Service was really crummy… slow, hard to understand. We ordered our drinks and they came with the wrong ice so I asked for the correct ice and was told they were busy over the weekend.. (this is Saturday night) and they didn’t make more. The drink was good though less the melting ice. We had an appetizer that was fresh and delicious but because of the slow drinks, slow and rude service, people around us leaving for the same reason, we decided to end things and try somewhere else.
