    We had an 8:15 reservation but we’re not seated until close to 9:00. Wait staff was inattentive due to large parties and never brought us multiple items we asked for. Beautiful restaurant in regards to ambience and food was good but they need to increase staffing significantly.

    Food was exceptional. Just very pricey for what you get. Best quality sashimi I've had in a while, just not a lot of it. Service was fantastic! She was energetic, and with a memory like a steel trap. She was busy but she never missed a beat. Ambiance was v nice. Quite modern with a mix of a midtown bar and bar height tables. Constant line to get in, so that tells you a little about the food quality. Blue fin tuna and kanpachi were excellent and the wagyu beef was to die for, although again, not a lot of it for the price. It's definitely one to try , but bring your credit card!!

    The menu/website should state you can't get the chef course meal on the weekend! I emailed with no reply and called with no answer to Confirm, so just showed up and in fact could not order the tasting menu. The server just picked her favorites and it was underwhelming and she stated multiple times it all came out late and in the wrong order.

    This was our first time dining here - honestly we picked it because it was one of the few places we could get reservations at the time we wanted and it had good reviews. We are so glad we tried it - this place was amazing. We loved that they had so many unique options - we will definitely go back! This is definitely high end dining but the service/atmosphere wasn't pretentious at all - and I should mention that our server, Austin was great!

    This was our first visit to this restaurant and we will not return. The good news (the only good news) is that they promptly honored our reservation. The noise level was intolerable (we had to ask our waitress to shout so we could hear her). We ordered drinks and dinner at the same time as we had a concert that evening. They started bringing appetizers before our drinks arrived (we had to ask about our drinks). Leisurely dining this was not. The food was tolerable but came very quickly. The maki rolls were dry and were clearly made many hours before. We had to ask for soy sauce and wasabi to be brought to the table (and they don’t leave a supply of soy sauce in the table: if you want more, you have to request it). My hakatori - the only cooked item we ordered - came out after we had finished everything else, even though it’s on the menu as a small plate, semi-appetizer. All in all, a terrible dining experience.

    The food was good, we liked everything we got and would order the same stuff again. Our waitress was very sweet and attentive. The big cons for us that will probably not have us return….waited 30 mins even though we booked a reservation. And it is so insanely loud in there you can barely hear the waitress or even conversation at our table.

    This was the best Asian meal that I have had in a very long time. They had a four-course tasting flight that I took advantage of that they have in honor of their third anniversary, and the person with me had something off the menu, and we had an outstanding French red that was below the cost of what I could buy for retail. The entire experience was fantastic, and the server took very good care of us. I am sure they will be celebrating many more anniversaries with the product they have in terms of ambiance, food, and service in no particular order. Thank you for the amazing experience

    Waiter did not come to check on us after somebody else delivered our food. We wanted to order more but she was nowhere to be found.. also she took forever to bring the check. Food was not bad but it wasn’t the best. I’ve been here before and it was much better. Definitely won’t be back.
