The sushi and sashimi were so delicately sliced, seasoned and served! Outstanding! We were a party of 11, and asked the servers to just "keep bringing plates for sharing" and believe me, they did not disappoint. There was a Mexican twist to some of the...More

He’s an amazing sushi chef! This is the one restaurant we return at least once a year to...the Gorgonzola shrimp is outstanding. Calamari hand roll, the little nest with scallops is one of a kind. We can’t find sushi like this and we live in...More
