What used to be a popular, slightly upscale dining spot in Cherry Creek Mall has changed profoundly with the recent remodel. It is now more of a bar feel, and mall patrons actually walk through the restaurant close to diners to exit to outside! It is the only exit! A bit food court-y due to this effect now, even though...

OK...so it is a mall restaurant. That used to mean something entirely different than what it does now a days. This is an upscale restaurant with good prices and a great remodel that was done recently. I love several things on their menu and the two that I have had the most are their chopped salad (great!) and their pork... More

It is a little loud for me so it isn't a quiet romantic date night place but the food is delicious. I've been here for lunch, dinner, apps... It's always really good and the service is usually very good as well. The entrees and the sushi is great. Our sushi rice was a little warm but the tuna was great.... More

We ordered drinks and appetizers--sushi, pot stickers and spinach dip with chips. After catching up and enjoying our "happy hour" , our server, Alexis, (who had been very... More

Ate here before and food has been better but service always slow. Won't be going back after today. Ordered a Cuban that had almost no pork, cheese unmelted , temperature cold, no pickle and collapsing as it was so small. Complained and ordered something else which I was charged for despite not being able to eat the Cuban . Very... More

Arrived about 6:30 and was surprised that Happy Hour goes till 7. We sat on the patio area outside the bar and it was comfortable. Happy Hour selections are great. Excellent service with a great selection of generous appetizers. Easy parking is also a plus at the Cherry Creek Mall.

Located at Cherry Creek shopping centre. Was recommended by a sales lady working at Free People. I had the Pork dish, with mushrooms, Buck Choy and mashed potato. What an interesting blend of flavours.. Loved it. The water features in the restaurant adds s lovely touch.
