Really enjoyed the sashimi here. The yellowtail, salmon and octopus were all delicious and the portions were very large as well. The restaurant is located in a marina and is very lovely. We would gladly dine here again.

The quality of the raw fish was average. It was disappointing that the sushi chef did not use sushi grade rice, as that detracted from the overall taste.

Not to my knowledge. It wasn't "season" when I went, so maybe just calling ahead of time to see.
