The restaurant itself is amazingly decorated, and the open kitchen is stunning. I've been a chef for years, so I kinda geeked out on the whole setup. We had 2 sushi rolls and oysters for starters and they were incredible! Great flavor, super fresh, and artistic plating. For my main course I had the ramen noodle bowl and the poke flight. The ramen was the best ramen dish I've ever had, and I was in Japan last year. The poke had intense flavor, and the fish tasted like it just came out of the water. My wife had a crab cake, and also the beet salad. She loved both and raved about them for days. Drinks were also well made, and tasty as well. The service is attentive, and constantly keeps everything topped off, and up to par.

This place is second to none, and definitely deserves a visit!

We ordered to-go desserts for late night sweet tooth. Order was not complete(forgot ice cream) and the creme brulee was liquidity. We thought about the Sunday brunch, but it was too overpriced for offered items. This will probably be a great place once they get their footing.

Only ordered an omelet and an avocado melt, ridiculous! We felt bad for the server, she was so apologetic! Need to work on the staff at this hotel.

Delicious food! Halle is the best waitress. Literally, specifically ask her her. Dont get Jean. That's a sad story for another time.

Food was amazing. Made from scratch with the finest ingredients. Loved how cute the place was as well. I mean, everything was great, besides Jean the waiter that is.

A few of my friends and I came by after the sugar sand festival at the beach. The restaurant is beautiful with modern lines and an open kitchen. The open kitchen makes it easy to see all the cooks diligently working. The Chef John came out to check on us as we were getting our food. He was so nice. The food was amazing. We had lobster sushi with eel and avocado, oysters on the half shell, the ahi tuna takaki, Chinese meatballs, dumplings, lobster fried rice and a special creme burlee. It was my best friends birthday so the creme burlee had happy birthday written on it for her. We were treated like queens. The Chef's inventiveness and flavors were spot on, the drinks were also good. Chef John is an amazing chef and we will be sure to go back
