Great & knowledgeable service. Fantastic food! So tasty, perfect temps. We had the Tuna Tataki, Manila Clams, Wagyu Gyoza. If you haven't tried you you have to try it. All were terrific. The food is a little pricey. Wine prices are pretty high as well...More

.We arrived for a late dinner just before the kitchen was about to close.. never the less the waitress was very patient, ready to explain and offer suggestions. We had a wonderful meal. Not cheap but worth the money.
