I think they have a few tables but I always walk in and order to go without even looking at the tables. Fresh, tasty, well presented and at the lower end of a high priced neighborhood.

Super little sushi restaurant. About 15 seats and what you order gets made while you can see it. Fresh, tasty, top. Nice atmosphere, nice price level. Worth going to, but would recommend marking reservation since there was a long line when we where eating.
