“Table for two”. “Do you have a reservation”. “No”. And so it goes. The food is good. The prices are high. The service is too much and the atmosphere is typical contemporary sushi.

Loved everything we ate! We ordered gyoza, sushi, sashimi, salad, and pan-fried spicy fish. The presentation was beautiful and the food delicious!! The wait staff went above and beyond to add to our evening! I definitely recommend this restaurant!

Lovely location, excellent service, very pricey, disappointing food. Fake crab as the main part of all too small portions of sashimi. Thick soggy tempura.
