    I had the Valentine's Day Special with my partner, and the food was outstanding. The vibe is very luxurious. The price is a little high but understandable considering the service, food, and wine. My only complaint is that the music was a little loud and didn't fit the vibe of the restaurant.

    1 of our mains came before everything else, appetizers came in the middle then 2nd main came last, very disorganized in regards to meal structure. Aside from that staff was friendly, food was amazing and atmosphere was great. Overall amazing place just needs abit more organization on delivering food

    Food was delicious and fun to experience. Easy to get swept away with ordering more to try. Mystery box was a highlight for sure. Found cocktails to be imbalanced and not match the quality of the food. Would recommend sake and/or beer to prospective diners as it did not interfere. The room was lovely and intimate. Server was lovely and didn't try to sell us anything we weren't interested in or needed. I could tell she cared we enjoyed our experience. Would recommend. Would try again.

    Went to Akira Back to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday. Overall it was an okay experience. You didn’t have the wine we wanted. No one came to take our order for a long time, and our server didn’t help us with any recommendations. The manager though, I forget her name, was very helpful and on it. I began to tell her it was his bday and I didn’t even have to finish my sentence - she got a cake sent over right away. She was very impresive.

    The ambiance was the best part. Our server on the other hand just seemed uninterested and indifferent to the service he was providing us. It was a slow night and there was only like 5 tables so we expected a stellar service. The food was good but it was wasn’t memorable.

    For 160 Dollar, the expectancy of the food was not not meet at all. One of the mpst underwhelming tastimg menj. We sadly were very frustrated to a point, where we even lost our appetite. Food was bland, meat were to fatty, some of the food combination didnt harmonize at all felt random, only sushi was good. Again for 160 price value I expect very minor deficencies in food quality for such a price. We were still hungry as we even had to send our main course back and were lefr unsatisfied. Service was "ok" but mpr attentitatove as ot should be, drinks were empty for a long time, plates were laying around for a long time, servixe attention for us minimum contact, no tasting menu pacing, etc. again for such a high class restaurant I expect a different level. Really regrettrable 320$ spend for which we got little value
