We popped in for a quick drink and sat at the bar. Beautiful lighting, great music and atmosphere. Bartender was excited to suggest and prepare our drinks which were perfect! Would definitely recommend it!

The noise is deafening on a Saturday night even at 5:30. Walk past the bar into the restaurant and it gets a bit better, but then you have to deal with music which is way too loud. But there is a vibrancy and energy to...More

We went to this restaurant at the end of July. I have a sesame allergy and informed the waitress before receiving the menus, clearly reminded her again at the time of ordering and asked her to double check when receiving the food…all clear apparently! After...More

Great decor. The sushi tacos and crispy rice were AMAZING. By the time main sushi came, we were stuffed. The portions are really big and beautiful. Great service.

We went for brunch intrigued by the Japanese inspired menu which was rather disappointing. Even though they offer an actual separate BRUNCH MENU they don't seem to be prepared to serve it. The food was mediocre at best, served on small side dish size plates,...More
