Been here several times, most recently for lunch. Sushi bar is good. Lunch outdoors was okay. Place is clean with prompt service.

Frankly, I wouldn't expect such a poor service in a Japanese restaurant. Granted most servers were not Japanese, it doesn't give the excuse them to be snappy and unattentive. Food was nothing special either.

We go to Akira at least four times a month! One of my favorites is their Garlic Edamame, no one makes them as good as they do. Fish is always fresh, friendly service, order food to go and they have a large selection of sushi.

A local Japanese restaurant with nice ambience and great food. The variety of dishes and sushi on the menu made for tough choices. Service was excellent, and the restaurant was quiet enough for table conversation. I would recommend this to anyone with a yen for...More
