This restaurant was extremely good. We had gotten there late but they took there time with us and made sure we were well taken care of. Our waitress promptly took our orders and saw to it that our salads and soups were out there as quick as possible. Once we finished with those they brought out our main course. I had gotten the teriyaki chicken and my husband had gotten the filet mignon and lobster tail. His steak was cooked to perfection he had asked for medium. My chicken was pretty much the best teriyaki chicken I have ever had. The waitress kept our drinks and "yum yum" sauce filled. Overall we had a wonderful experience.

Nice staff, good food and reasonable pricing. Not sure you need much else from a restaurant! Having read a few less favorable reviews I must say that we were there on a quiet night and the attention from the staff was fantastic. Not sure what it would be like when it was busy.

There was a bit of a strange odor when we entered the restaurant. Don't know what it was but it was not pleasant. It was late and many other places were closed or closing so we stayed. Service was quite good but the food was average to below par. They had a special sushi roll of the day that was pretty good but the rest of the meal was downhill. The miso soup was very bland, the salad was ordinary and the habachi entrees were quite average. Portions were fine but the flavor was just not there. There are much better choices in the area. Just don't wait until after 9:00 to find one.
