    I ordered miso soup, a crunch roll, and karaage, all of which were very good. For my main I ordered chicken Teriyaki, a Seattle staple. What arrived at my table very late, was what I would refer to as desiccated chicken stir fry. There was no sauce or discernible flavor. They did replace it and it was acceptable but it took a lot of time and still wasn’t great.

    This is somehow the perfect mix of a hip and trendy, relaxing, Japanese sushi place with extremely good food. I enjoyed the vegetarian Cowboy roll, Seattle9 roll and cucumber roll - so good, and all of the excellent traditional sushi options were available and more. The seaweed salad was very nice as well. Everything was delicious and the service was excellent! They have high top tables, regular seating. and sushi bar seating. The cocktails, beers, and sake options are all amazing as well. You can’t go wrong here!

    At best mediocre. The service was decent but the raw food was not. There’s a reason why the best sushi places are small. But when sushi is industrialized to such a large extent there is a definite decline in the quality of the food. With that said, stay away from the raw food and order the cooked food.

    Was looking for a casual dining spot with authentic Japanese sushi. OpenTable advertised an “experience” option which I reserved - the counter bar where the ”action” takes place. Upon arrival we were taken to a standard table and only then asked if we wanted the counter when we inquired - less than ideal experience. The waiter gave my guest and I great recommendations for appetizers and was extremely generous with the drinks he served. I appreciated the heavy poor but couldn’t finish the drink… The food was nothing to write home about and would not even recommend this venue to someone who has a novice palate for Japanese cuisine as this doesn’t even come close to what I would deem authentic. As my guest tasted on piece of one of the rolls he described it as “cat food like.” The appetizer was highly confusing as it was a sashimi dish under the guise of a tuna carpaccio wherein neither of us could even taste the fish…. Concerning? I think so. There was one thing that really bothered me by this place as well. The menu items are named in what I would describe as a culturally insensitive. “Asian Armageddon” isn’t the most polite way to market the cuisine you’re intending to recreate and serve. For that reason alone I will take my business elsewhere for mediocre sushi.

    Fantastic sushi restaurant. Innovative menu. Our waiter has an off night it seems. Not normal for the food service we expect. The outside was having some work done so they seated us in a cool inside spot with our dog. How cool is that?

    If you want drinks and something to nibble on, this place is adequate, but anything more, you’d best look elsewhere. The selection is highly Americanized and not of the best quality. TLDR; this place clearly doesn’t understand the Coco Chanel rule of dining. To top it off, it’s pretty pricy for what it is. Wouldn’t particularly recommend unless your night really isn’t about the food.

    The food was absolutely delicious and the service was wonderful. The rolls are a bit pricey, but they were larger than some places which mitigated the difference a bit. Apricot lemonade was also scrumptious. Only complaint is that the tables for two are quite long, putting us a good foot further apart than most restaurants, and the restaurant was very loud with chatter and music, which made it hard to have conversation. I just turned 31 and my hearing is pretty normal, but when my partner covered their mouth for a moment while talking, I had no idea what he was saying anymore (lip reading). Anyhow, overall wonderful place, but I bet turning down the music and smaller tables would prevent people from having to shout, which would overall greatly improve that concern and add a slightly more calm ambiance.

    Overall I think the food and atmosphere was pretty good. Really upbeat and good vibes inside. I sat at the bar with my date and I can’t lie it’s not very comfortable. There’s not much leg room and that makes it pretty uncomfortable. Service was somewhat bad though. Took ages to get our drinks. 20 minutes or so.

    I enjoyed the food and ambiance however we were seated at a high top table. I was told that all reservations from Open Table were seated at either high tops or the bar. When I booked the reservation there were 3 options, the two previously mentioned and standard seating. I specifically choose standard. So if you want to sit at a table, don’t make your reservations through this app

    Went here based on the rating. From arriving and having a hostess ask our name 3 times, ask what kind if table twice, it doesn't start well. The table for 2 was huge. Felt like we were too far apart to talk. Service finally came. Food prep took awhile. Food was ok. Not worth the price in my opinion. I wont go back.
