Like all the previous reviewers have said the quality is exceptional. The waiting stuff are well versed in what they are serving, its origin and the flavours your palette will experience. The chocolate soufle is exceptional also. Certainly at the very high end of price...More

Great quality food and attentive service. Call ahead if you are hoping to get a table less than a week in advance (including on the same day); otherwise, make reservations online. It's a bummer that parking is such a nightmare.

This is my second time to this restaurant. First time wasn't impressed with their sashimi. And their service also average. Not calling them rude, but also didn't make you feel like they were friendly or sincere. This time, their sashimi was fantastic, could be timing...More
