    One of the waiters kinda convince me and my girlfriend to share a plate cuz he made it seem like it was a lot so we decided to share a plate then we barley even got anything to eat. Also I asked if you guys could say happy birthday for my mom or anything but nothing happened.

    Get rid of the 20% service charge. I would use tge 20% for tip. It's the companies job to pay their employees more not the customers.

    I could tell the people seated at the table with my party & I were highly uncomfortable with us do to our ethnicity. I asked the hostess to move us or them because it was very awkward but our request was completely ignored. I did not appreciate that at all. So my party and I ate our food uncomfortably.

    We ordered sushi rolls. They were large. One was good but the other lacked flavor. I ordered a miso soup but asked them to remove it from the order because it arrived so late. I think it would be a good place for large groups but it was not my cup of tea, so to speak. Which reminds me, all they serve is green tea from individual tea bags. Which is OK, but not what I'm used to in Japanese restaurants. I prefer a pot of tea with fresh tea leaves.

    Laminated paper signs in several places at entrance “20% gratuity will be automatically added to your bill” “you must leave table 40 min after chef has finished cooking your meal”. Floors were super slippery w what I guess is oil.

    Food was excellent. The experience the ultimate worst. The entire dining experience was rushed. 30 seconds after our soup and salad were delivered the chef arrives and immediately starts cooking the main course. He cooked it very quickly and was gone to the next table . I have been to these type of places before. Part of the enjoyment is the chef preparing the food and cooking it in front of you. He showed up as soon as the soup and salad were delivered and rushed through his cooking. Then , we had barely started our main course and the waitress deliverers the check? Did they want to rush us through this dinner!! Just the ultimate worst experience. I am an easy going person and hardly ever write reviews but felt I must in this case. I 100 percent would never return to this place and recommend others not waste there money here- it’s not cheap. The cost would have been fine if the experience had been good, but the experience was terrible. Just the worst really.

    I had a reservation for 5:15pm.. We only had to wait about 10 minutes before they took us in, which wasnt bad at all. Food was amazing, definitely pricey - but we knew that going in. Our Chef was cool and service was good too. Food was yummy as usual.

    Had a good experience celebrating my moms bday. We were able to bring a cake in and they gave us small plates and a knife to cut my moms cake. I thought that was really nice. They also brought my mom a small piece of cake and sang happy birthday to her.

    Didn’t like that 20% gratuity is added to the bill regardless of party size and then your credit card receipt still has a line for tip. I imagine that people double-tip often without even knowing. Then we felt rushed compared to the last time that I dined at this restaurant. We got a lot less food than we did the last time. They seemed to have cut back considerably on the cheapest component of most people’s meal which is the rice. The portion was not commensurate with the cost of the meal. Lastly, our waiter seemed very impatient with me because he couldn’t hear me through my mask, over the noise in the restaurant but didn’t bother to adjust by coming around closer to me to take my order. I didn’t appreciate the snippiness in answering my questions about a menu that isn’t self-explanatory. Both times I have brought large groups with me to this restaurant spending more than $300 per visit. I will try taking my party to Hana Japan instead next time.

    It was our first time there. I didn’t know we had to share a table. We had to share with three young guys that were cursing a lot. It was a Father’s Day outing with my kids and their dad. The food was great. Even though we don’t eat beef. We had chicken and one of the guys had streak. The chief cooked all the food together, so it was streak juice- fat cooked with our chicken. Glad we checked it out but will not be going back.

    A bit too expensive for what we got but fun nonetheless. The best part was after the meal, we went to the bar and chopped it up with Andrew (bartender). Cool guy, great at drniks, and funny as hell. I would go just to have a few drinks with him next time.

    Ordered medium rare steak and received well done. A friend told our server that her California roll didn’t taste good and their response was “ok”. No toilet paper stocked in women’s restroom. Honestly my experience is a 0 out of 10 wouldn’t recommend.

    We were given to go boxes while we were still eating, never got offered dessert, refill on drinks, dirty dishes sat there for a while, no one checked on us. Poor service even though 20% service fee is already included. I don’t mind that practice but we expected better service
