“good food”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

Found it on Urbanspoon. Odd combo of japanese and french. just just had Japanese. sushi was good, tempura was fresh and not too greasy. Presently they are "under new management" and not serving alcohol "yet". Service was prompt and professional.

“Mediocre at best”
Reviewed 20 May 2012 via mobile

We figured that we would take a gamble at this new restaurant, one street down from all of the other more prominent, well-rated restaurants. We failed. This is basically a small town sushi bar with a small, uninspired, "French" portion to their menu. The ambiance is atrocious with annoying pop music playing loudly. Server knew nothing about the menu. For the price, their are numerous far better options very close by. Don't waste your time here.
