3rd time visiting over as many years. Food was great as usual in mid March. Recent reviewers gave poor reviews, wonder if the rumor i heard that they were closing is true?

Atmosphere was very nice. Patio dinning, clean and very stylish. Service seemed not up to St. John's speed. Interesting drink selection and did enjoy several of those. Sushi rolls seemed over priced and were average in tasted. Probably won't return.

Don't let the location fool you, cute place, great food. Sushi was fabulous. At first look I wasn't excited about the menu selection but in the end very glad we went, food was really, really good.
