Had a group of six and took about an hour to seat us. The sushi and appetizers are great. The old fashion drink we ordered had a bit too much syrup, so we sent it back. Sushi was good and very colorful.

Sophisticated interior decor with touches of elegance and earthiness. Menu is diverse and all of in our party rated the food excellent. You don't even need to love sushi - there are other options. Friendly service. Can't wait to go back!

Cobo is a favorite place for us. I'm allergic to shellfish and really enjoy the Appalachian Role, along with steamed dumplings, although lots of other choices as well. Have to comment on the drinks: always excellent and creative. Best Lemon Drop Martini in the county!...More
