“AMAZING FOOD”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014 via mobile

Went here for my boyfriend's birthday, and it was just fantastic. The food is just amazing, brilliantly thought out, beautiful to look at, and unlike any other food I have ever had. The service was also wonderful, I've never had a server so knowledgable about the food & attentive to us even though the restaurant was crowded. We tried a little bit of everything and I especially recommend the tasting sequences, there were so many different courses to try. It is definitely a little expensive unfortunately, but well worth it. I am in love with this restaurant and highly recommend it to anyone looking for amazing new food!

“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

Fantastic exotic foods like duck in a jar and stuffed avocado. An adventurous experience, but only worth it if you're daring with your choices. GREAT STAFF!

“Our all time fave restaurant in Houston!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

Wish we would've found this place sooner, as it is now our go-to restaurant for any celebration!! We live in the suburbs so it's about a 40 min drive and a $150 Bill for two people, so we reserve it for special occasions. But it's less expensive than many other "nice, trendy" Houston restaurants! $150-200 includes drinks, food, dessert, and tip. Get the chef's choice and prepare to be amazed at the flavor combinations! Served tapas style, you get a tasting of each course- and each one is equally amazing! The deconstructed desserts are equally fantastic and you must try the sake cocktail!! Delish!!

“Great food, don't go if you're on a budget”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

Some friends treated me to this wonderful restaurant ( thank goodness because I was a bit short on cash ). We ordered a lot of food , almost had the entire menu I think, portions are quite small ,so don't expect to walk out of there stuffed. It was incredibly busy , Nd despite this the service was pretty good. Good sake list . My favorite was the hamachi with pear and smoked almonds. It was an incredibly memorable dish. A must if you are in Houston or Austin. ( and have some loaded friends)!

“Service let us down”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

The flavor and creativity of the food was great. However, our service was quite poor. We ordered several items, and the portions are quite small. It seemed like we were waiting forever between each dish. This was made worse as we watched surrounding tables receiving dish after dish as we sat there with an empty table. We had to keep asking when we would be brought some food. It was painful. After seeing our frustration, our server brought us something we didn't order that he said would be complimentary, but when the bill came the extra item was included in the total. At that point, I was tired of complaining and just paid it. On the way out, the host gave us a gift card to try and make us feel better, but I don't know if we are going to use.
