In a very good location in SF (the embarcadero), this restaurant proposes good asian-inspired cuisine. Most dishes are made with fish or seafood. The white wine was served half-chilled and nobody was able to provide a basic ice bucket. Very overpriced (more than 80 dollars...More

Experience was average. Food quality was good, but table density in restaurant was high and server seemed too busy to focus on us or check in. Server was not helpful when asked questions. She negatively impacted experience.
