We found this place to be disappointing. We don't know if it was because of the Holiday rush, or the poor lighting at our table, but we were simply not impressed. The sushi appeared to have mayo or some other foreign, creamy sauce in it - something we really hate to find. We're also spoiled, because were accustomed to excellent, authentic Sushi in Los Angeles. If you have no other option, i suppose it's ok. But if you have the energy and time, go find something else. At these prices, it should offer better.

Very nice experience, especially since we were seated in a corner with open windows, so the ambiance was wonderful. Little bit of difficulty ensuring my son's meal was gluten-free, but our meals were good and we enjoyed the evening.

We decided for our last night on the island to try Imari. Honestly, it was just okay. We have had better experiences and food on trips to Benihana. It is very expensive so keep that in mind. I didn't feel like we got what we paid for.

Took the family here so the kids could experience a teppenyaki Japanese style restaurant - Service was spectacular, and food tasty.

We enjoyed sushi as well as the main event, but was definitely not the star of the show.

Was expecting a hefty bill for the four of us, so was no surprise when it came.

Great chef and good company at our table! We both had the steak and chicken and the banana dessert was great.
