Had a great get together with a friend who frequents this place. Sat at the bar, the wine was good and they prepared a special sushi roll upon her request. The bar does fill up quickly and it’s at little pricey.

It's true... most of this experience comes from the chef. BUT... the food is excellent! Chef always cooks to order and is very good. The entire experience is not cheap. We typically go here for birthdays, anniversaries, etc.... and are never disappointed. Well done.
