Sat outside on a beautiful summer evening- sushi was excellent- service friendly and quick. Excellent bento box on the kids menu in addition to "kids" food. Volcano roll was a standout. Will be going back.

Our first visit. The decor is beautiful. Some nice cozy areas with sofas. However much of table and bar seating is attired with very uncomfortable hard chairs. If you saddle up to the sushi bar to watch preparation you will be disappointed. Very little happens there. My sushi was delivered from the kitchen. This restaurant has a very broad menu and seemed to do better with steaks and chops than sushi. On the upside, very friendly staff. I would visit again, but not for Japanese cuisine.

I'd really like to rate this place higher. It has some things going for it: good location, friendly staff, decent food. It's visually stunning, and the open-air aspect to it is very nice and welcoming when the weather cooperates. However, my husband and I were unable to fully enjoy our meal for a couple of reasons. First, it seemed like the bar was out of almost everything we ordered to drink. Second, the thumping, intensely bass-driven sound track playing actually caused a headache, something I'm not prone to. It interfered with our ability to enjoy our food or to have a decent conversation. We were seated beside one of the side windows (which was closed) and thought that might lessen the sound somewhat, but it didn't--in fact, it may have worsened it as it seemed to reverberate. I fear this place has overdosed on trendiness - they could cut back on the volume and have a much better dining experience for its patrons! If any potential diners are sensitive to noise, check out various areas of the restaurant before being seated!
