Rice used for sushi is not the same but not bad. We had shishimi, sushi, maki and bento box. We were a large group. Service was a bit slow. Atmosphere was amazing! It is a nice looking restaurant and some dishes were creative.

Really? So you needed to create 3 different accounts to post a 1 star review? Why don't you tell the whole story? Maybe because it would not shine a good light on you?. I guess when you said that you will do everything to destroy...More

The food and atmosphere are both excellent. Staff varies - some are nice but others need to learn to be friendlier. Excellent location on the board walk.

After reading the reviews I was expecting better. The atmosphere is nice with good ocean views. The poached octopus salad was the highlight of our meal. The octopus was sliced paper thin and was served with baby lettuce, tiny tomatoes, orange slices and a light...More

Hello I do believe I saw high chairs, but I personally didn't ask for one, or have a cute toddler with me to have a need for one! There were families there, however, so I would assume they have them! :)
