good sushi, shady waitress. The decor inside was cute. The sushi was good, but not anything spectacular. Based on my experience I would go again. However, there is a shady waitress who works there. I had written in the tip amount on the restaurant's copy of the credit card receipt. But, when I saw my credit card statement sometime after, I realized she had decided to add an extra dollar to the tip amount and this was on a 18% tip. It got resolved through the credit card company, and it was only a dollar....but it's the principle of the matter.
Not worth the time if you love sushi and great service.. Visited this restaurant for the second time on March 22, 2008 at around 9ish. The restaurant was busy but didn't have to wait long for a table. The hostess didn't even have a smile when she greeted and seated us. Waitress wasn't bad. She suggested some sushi along with our other orders, although the sushi was not memorable. And believe me, I eat sushi like its my job. I have eaten at more restaurants that have better service and put more care and quality into their sushi that this place doesn't compare in the slightest. What looked like to be the manager, was nice enough to make sure that all his "regulars" were well taken care as he watched over them by the sushi bar. I've never seen a manager hang out by the sushi bar that much... as if he was afraid to approach new customers. As our time ended at this place, we wanted to get our check and waited long enough to realize that we were waiting too long. But they didn't wait long to pick up the check once it was signed. Happened to glance at the hostess on the way out....no smile. So sad. So if you are not a regular at this place and if you are into not great service and not great sushi, then try it at your own risk. But don't say that were weren't warned.
Below Par Sushi. Went on Friday, February 22. Ate at the sushi bar. The popular fish such as maguro and salmon was fine. However, the more challenging fish such as yellowtail and halibut were not fresh at all. This is the second time trying and both times some of the fish wasn't that fresh. The sushi chefs are fun and provide good service. My friends all like this restaurant because it is close to our work and the staff is real pleasant. However, the fish just doesn't cut it with me.
