Everything was good (but not gourmet). We shared a crabmeat sushi, veggie burger, and avocado salad. All was good. Service was good as well. For a large restaurant we were surprised we could hear each other and weren't disturbed by a large party seated near us. Good experience and would definitely return again when in town again.

We stopped in after a downtown event and found the food and service to both be very good. Our waiter was friendly and prompt and was able to accurately describe menu items.

We went twice and both times food was undercooked and yet took forever to prepare. Won't be going here again.

We went on an extremely busy New Year's Eve without reservations. Nevertheless we were worked into bar seating very quickly. The service was prompt and friendly. Two of our entrees - whitefish and a Caesar salad - were quite good and an excellent value. The whitefish was properly cooked and flavorful. The mash potato side was very well received. The... More

Simply, probably the most underrated restaurant in TC. We do date nights here, and also lunch is great. You won't be disappointed.

The place to end on Thursday if you like Martinis. Small plates if you like or full dinners. Service is excellent.

Happened on this place during our visit to TC and found it very enjoyable. The deal is a buy one, get one on appetizers (I think it's only Tuesday evenings). So my wife and I ordered the calamari and the potstickers. Both were great. The calamari was spicy in one way and the potstickers with accompanying sauce were spicy in... More

This was one of our favorite restaurants in TC. We haven't been there for several months but I took an out of town friend there for lunch yesterday. I was surprised at the menu as it had seriously changed since my last visit. But I was hopeful it was even better. Not so.... I ordered fish tacos and had to... More

Get the pitcher of sangria! Very light and refreshing for a hot summer day! Not too many options that are vegetarian friendly but the sweet potato fries and California sushi rolls were a big hit. Great location with a great atmosphere. Would recommend to anyone visiting Traverse City.
