My partner and I had dinner on Valentine's day. The menu was Prix fixe and included 7 courses, some of which is on the regular menu. The tuna tataki was delicious. As was the ebi in spicy sauce.
Excellent Happy Hour! Friendly staff, good vibe and not too loud. The food was delicious as well - specialty roll was worth the $. Shrimp dumplings were tasty and the miso is yummy. We will definitely be back!
This should not be called an izakya restaurant, it's nothing like an izakaya in Japan. It's just another mediocre Japanese place. Sorry I just wasn't impressed with anything. Food, service. Ambiance. Nothing
Squid Robata was completely burnt. Manager was rude when we asked for enough ponzu for everyone at the table. Our party included children and they put us in a dark area around the corner from the main restaurant that seemed as if it wasn’t in use anymore. Waitress was very nice but other than that we did not have a good experience.
This is a lovely place to grab a pre/post-theatre performance meal. The happy hour menu is generous (lots of choices) and the service was excellent. Dishes were the right size to split between two people and the food wasn't too heavy (more "snacks" that are filling than actual solid "meal"). It was a great place to hang out and have a conversation over drinks and food.
The happy hour prices were great and the food was good
Had reserved for 8pm. Arrived early. No hostess. Place looked empty A group of strange people dressed in strange costumes were filtering in.
A girl finally walked by. She said she would find someone. Another 10 min hostess finally She talked to 2 girls who just arrived. I told her I had a reservation..it was now 820pm. She said we would be seated behind the walkin groups of 6 and 2.
I showed my confirmation. She said we would be seated behind the walkins It would be at least 30 min. Had taken a cab there...not impressed. She said she could recommend 2 other Japanese places. I had already tried them . Nothing until 915. It was obvious she knew the strange party of 6 some of whom were now necking! We went to Japonessa. BEST!!!!
We appreciated servers being very attentive and friendly.
Food was very salty i.e. roll, ramen. Rice was mushy and doughy.
We met some friends from Seattle here and had an absolutely wonderful meal. Every item we ordered was delicious. You can't go wrong at this place. And the prices were quite reasonable as well,
