My husband and I went here for dinner. Intimate setting, with great music. Covered outside porch-- kept us dry from the rain. The service was excellent with super friendly staff.

The sushi rolls were excellent, all made with fresh fish from the ocean. We've waited a little bit more than expected, but it's worth it Staff was friendly. And I've mostly enjoyed the Helado Teppan Yaki dessert.
