Went here for a dinner to host 11 people and I thought it was A-Ok. Service was great and to par. The spicy miso ramen was good and I even asked for an extra to go!

Dining room is gorgeous but food doesn't live up to it. Service is adequate but not especially professional. Rainbow roll: short and topped with scraps, no full slice of sashimi. Average these days.

Average food for expensive prices. We arrived with 6 people. The place was empty; yet the hostess would not accommodate us with another table that we preferred. We have came here a few times before and even considered hosting a party here....but will not come again. For the money I am paying, I just expect more! Too many places to pick for Japanese food in the area. Bye!
