Met friends here after work. They offer $5 small plates during happy hour. The wings, calamari, pot stickers and fish and chips were great for the price!

I stopped here for a late lunch on a Tuesday. I was immediately sat. My order was quickly taken: deviled egg appetizer and the bahn mi sandwich. The food was outstanding and fairly priced. The service was good too

Stopped in there for dinner as we arrived to late to go out and ended up having two more meals there. The wait staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is absolutely brilliant. Good selection of beers and wine.

I ate several meals here as I was attending a seminarian the Hilton Mark. I ate the buffet once and ordered from the menu twice. Two of the meals were fine, one was not. All the wait staff serving me were not native speakers of English which in one case presented a problem. I ordered rice with one meal and... More

I think this place has great food , but I feel like the service could be a little better .It was the first time I tasted Sushi and it was good . I would surely go back to the restaurant but ONLY if I was staying at the hotel. It is not a place.

I am staying at the Hilton, and arrived early (Sept 14) as my room was not ready. I decide to have a beer while I waited. I decided to sit at the bar, and settled in. I waited as the sushi chef worked 5 feet from me, I waited as several servers walked passed me, walk behind the bar, only... More

I was hoping for a light meal and wine before turning in. My only mistake in ordering the calamari is that it was such a huge serving. It was excellent and came with 2 tasty dipping sauces. The service was excellent, too.
