Very popular restaurant, service was slow but understandable on how busy they were on a Monday night. The place was packed. They have an amazing cocktail and sake selection and all the sushi was outstanding. Umi Roll and Pretty in Pink are a must.

Did an early dinner (via happy hour) upon arrival to Seattle for vacation. Sushi was exceptional, presentation very good, servers attentive, and many creative sale based cocktails. Had we not ate at Happy Hour, I would find the prices pretty steep - so would definitely...More
