Take it from a Sushi snob, this place is fantastic!! Very small and hard to get in, but worth it if you like the freshest, most creative sushi dishes. Nobu trained chefs make a fantastic variety of sushi and rolls!!

Great sushi. The staff was very friendly, and answered any questions I had about the menu. Restaurant is very small and extremely casual. I would recommend going here with three - four people maximum; the tables are very close together and quite cozy.

The best sushi I have ever eaten. Every dish was a delight. I can't recommend this place enough. As other reviewers have noted the place is tiny so come early or be prepared to wait - but it's worth it.

A little small and crowded, service is a little slow during busy periods. Get there early and enjoy very good sushi.

We eat sushi regularly but never like this. Super sashimi tuna on a bed of greens, dripped wasabi, vinegar and olive oil. A large assortment of rolls. The house specialty is a topping of slightly roasted salmon. For sure we will be back next time...More

The sushi was creative and innovative definitely not something you're going to get just anywhere. I wish the waitress could have been more helpful with recommendations, as the menu can be overwhelming if you don't read every single element of what you are ordering.
