Mark, the new owner, introduced himself as we sat down. He and his team have this place humming smoothly and we felt well taken care of. We sat and ordered at the sushi bar, where Chef Peter builds his sushi and sashimi creations. Delicious, and...More

Nice restaurant. Good food. Good service, a bit slow but nicely paced and a WHOLE lot better than being rushed. Our server was very friendly and informative about the gluten free aspects of the kitchen, being celiac herself, she even removed the soy sauce from...More

The food here is superb, carefully and beautifully presented. Sushi and other Japanese dishes are delicious. We love the salad and dressing, teriyaki salmon and are never disappointed. They have a traditional private dining area for groups of 6 also.
