We only ate sushi, no entrees. The sushi was outstanding. It was like really creative sushi with a French flair. Each seemed to have some divine sauce that enhanced the flavors perfectly. The service was impeccable. The waitress was very knowledgeable and seemed to que in on our preferences quickly and made excellent suggestions. The manager stopped by and very unintrusively asked how we were doing. My only complaint would be that the California Rolls used fake Krab. In a restaurant of this price point, I would expect them to use real crab. The decor is very contemporary and trendy. The clientel is mostly young adult. If you are looking for an intimate dinner, this is not the place. I can't wait to go back and tryother menu items, but I will skip the California Rolls.

Last Saturday we went there for the first time and had an enjoyable experience. The blond hostess was very gracious as she took my coat. (Sorry, I did not get names.) We were seated at a nice table near the undersea large tv. We had quiet a few people waiting on us, and they were speedy and attentive. Our waiter and waitress came back a number of times to check on us and so did others, including the manager. I ordered the salmon because it did not say it had noodles with it because I can't have regular noodles. The dish came with noodle anyway. When I explained my plight the choice I had was for a completely new dinner or putting my salmon on rice noodles. I told them to just replate my salmon, but they came back with a completely new meal and said they would not charge me for my meal. I said not necessary, but the waitress and the manager would not hear of it and it was not on the bill. The atmosphere was great! I would go back!!!

Ive been to this restaurant twice now and have had poor experiences both times. The food wasn't bad, although the chow fun noodles are linguine noodles, which is strange. Aside from that, they rush you in and out to get the next table seated way more quickly than is needed. Both times we were brought our check with our dessert at the same time and told to finish up as soon as possible because they wanted to get another table in. I realize all businesses want to make money, so after the first time, I didn't say anything. The second time it happened I spoke with the owner regarding this and was told it was a favor to us that we were getting a table at all and that was their policy. I maybe could have understood if we had slowly mingled or something, but we were only there long enough to get our food eaten and that's it. I would normally read reviews such as this and assume that the patron was just misunderstanding something or doing something wrong in some way. I am not that patron. The service and restaurant policy they attain to is ridiculous and rude and I wish them all the luck that each previous business has had in that space. If you are looking for a nice, relaxing dinner experience this is not the place.
