Can only give four stars since my reservation for 10 people on a Friday night got lost and we did not expect to be able to eat there. We were initially very disappointed. We have been going to this restaurant annually since 2009 when visiting...More

Did not like anything about this place except the little candies at the hostess station. The sashimi was poor quality, and I mean the poorest of the poor and was kind of a dark color. My boyfriend got Ramen and I could tell by looking...More

We were there twice in the last month. Both times the service was fine. Both times we just had a wide selection of the appetizers (1/2 off specials) and couldn't find any fault with the food. As a long time resident I... More
