We had a groupon here and the staff seemed annoyed that we bought It. They said we couldn't use our groupon toward happy hour which was fine but then we wanted to get the happy hour menu on food bought over the cost of our...More

We were excited to discover this restaurant as we walked around. The sushi was great. We ate in a very creatively designed room that felt like an underwater cave. We liked the contemporary music selections as well.

This place is terrible, the waitresses and bartenders are incredibly rude and the place itself is an absolute dump. Do not go here unless you are looking for a terrible time.

We just happened on this place because it was close to our hotel. We did not have sushi. My husband had Kobe beef tartar and it was delicious. He had another appetizer that was OK. I had the lamb chops (not exactly Japanese), and they...More
