good, but overpriced food. Slow service. Took over 1.5 hours for us to get the Omakase which costs $98 per person. Other parties showed up after we got there, got their food and left before we decided to leave because we had to be somewhere else. The staff was nice about it, but I will not be going here again.

Decent middle of the road japanese food. Highly recommend the Omakase. Service is slow and understaffed. Restaurant is keeping the door open, so it's freezing cold. Bathroom door is janky.

The Omakase we had was an excellent 20-piece meal, and reasonably priced for the quality of the fish, dishes, and flavors. Whether or not it is the best, I cannot say, but neither do I think it matters. It was amazing. However, their smaller dining room and hardwood walls, ceilings and floors had the noise peaking at 90+ decibels. So while the food is high-caliber, I wouldn’t recommend the setting for serious discourse or luxurious expectations, though I do overall recommend

The place looked to be slammed with take out orders and dining at the same time, but our seat down orders got lost in the line and we ended up waiting a long time for our food. Overall communication would have been nice but there was very little so we felt neglected

The food was very good! Appropriate price as well. One downside is that it was cold and they did not have heaters around all of their tables.

We made a last minute reservation for our 10th wedding anniversary on a Friday night. The staff was wonderful and made our dinner very special. The food was top notch and the restaurant very clean and well tended. My wife and I are big sushi lovers, and this was one of the best experiences we have ever had.

5 Stars plus!
