I ordered a sushi roll straight off the menu that had NOTHING raw on it. It's my personal preference. After waiting for 30 minutes, my roll came topped with thick slices of raw salmon. When I asked our waitress about it she told me each sushi chef makes the menu items "with their own special touches." Raw fish grosses me... More

My husband, 24 year old son and I ate at the Mahe on a sunday evening in December. We loved our meal and the atmosphere. We ate in this outside patio area that was surrounded by gas fires along the walls. Twinkling white lights lines lined the room along the ceiling. The room was enclosed with plastic so it was...

Mahe was recommended to us by the Ritz-Carlton, especially for Happy Hour. We sat outside on a warm autumn evening, and thoroughly enjoyed the sushi happy hour. The sushi was very fresh and well prepared. Soft tacos were also on special that evening, and I placed two orders since they were so good. Our server did a great job, as... More

This restaurant was a great choice for my son and daughter-in-law's rehearsal dinner. Since we were coming from Ohio, I relied on my son to make this choice. We sat outside at a big rectangular table with ample room for everyone to walk around and mingle. While we had cocktails, the servers walked around with delicious hor'doerves for us to... More

Had Dinner here for Jordan's birthday dinner, She had the Lobster and I had seared Ahi. Both were very good. The Poke appetizer we had was very tasty. The Creme Brule dessert they surprised Jordan with was excellent. One drawback and this is not a slight but for me it is difficult is the extremely high noise levels. But for... More
