We had the most incredible edamame we ever had anywhere. The scallops were the best ever, and I'm very particular about scallops. The asparagus was cooked to perfection. Rainbow roll and tuna nigiri and salmon nigiri were also top notch.

The issue was the service, which was uncoordinated. The main course arrived long before the appetizer was completed. The rice, which we ended up not liking, might never have arrived if we hadn't asked for it. The sushi, which we are accustomed to being brought out almost before we are ready for it, had to be asked for.

If service isn't an issue, this restaurant is a must.

Fun place. Nice service. Sushi was a little overdone and sweet for my tastes. Non sushi options were better choices. Liked it

This was the best sushi experience we've had since Oahu, Hawaii. The food, service and atmosphere were all excellent.

Go at Happy Hour... sit at bar and enjoy the delights of this place at great prices. Everyone at bar was happy and social. Staff were great. I've been back for dinner, but the happy hour experience is my favorite

Got a group of old college buds from all over the country together for dinner. Wonderful time sharing huge platters of inventive sushi and creative, botanically infused cocktails. All the tempura shrimp rolls are perfection. Modern furnishings, snazzy lighting and manzanita branches mounted to walls offered an upscale contemporary vibe. Would also be a chic date spot - just don't assume it'll be cheap. Fare and drinks more than merit the higher price point though!
