    I called prior to coming and ask if they have crab but they don’t which is okay. The person on the phone however told me that they have seafood like mussel, prawns, and sashimi. We decided to still go because they have sashimi which we love. We got there and paid. We got inside they don’t have sashimi but they do have mussels and prawns. Kind of disappointed we paid $124 for 2person. And the baked salmon was salty. The rest of the food is okay.

    Had family celebration for my mom’s 94th birthday. We had lots of fun! Mom got a nice freebie dessert & happy birthday sang to her by some staff members. Our main server, Jean, was fabulous. Super friendly and attentive. Thanks Jean for taking such good care of us.

    We were a party of 6 so I completely understood the need to include the tip on our bill. However, the restaurant was very understaffed. We cleared our own plates, waited a long time for our drinks and had to search for additional silverware. The wait staff did the best they could under the circumstances. The food was decent overall - the dessert table selection and flavors were very tasty!

    Thank you for your understanding regarding the tip inclusion and for your feedback. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the understaffing. Your comments are noted, and we're actively working to improve our service standards. We hope to welcome you back for a smoother dining experience soon.

    Food was fine. Not outstanding. Eggs benedict were stingy on hollandaise. Rest of breakfast items were good, not great. Chinese food items were below average, especially the Shanghai noodle dish. We expect better quality from Chinese dishes in Richmond. Highlights were waffles with fruit, and desert bar. Salad bar was better than average. Biggest problem was lack of selection for the money charged. For similar cost, I have had far better selection than was available. Also, the ambiance was only a step above Denny's (noisy and interior looked worn).

    Thank you for your feedback. We're glad you enjoyed some highlights but apologize for the shortcomings you experienced. Your comments on the lack of selection and dish quality are noted. We strive to improve and hope for the chance to exceed your expectations in the future.

    Not much of food selections on a weekend like it used to, especially from the hot food area. Was expecting some seafoods on Saturdays but none. Servers were okay but was disappointed when they gave us the old drinks menu that are no longer served :( They should of replaced or thrown them instead.

    Very limited food selection. Roast beef was like eating a leather shoe. The restaurant was ridiculously loud. Totally not worth the $50 price tag and the trip to Richmond. Money and time wasted.
