This was the most disappoint dining experience of the year for our family. We waited over a week for a reservation and came on time to sit at the chefs counter. I am a vegetarian, my husband and son are not. The item on the menu that i was most excited abut was "sold out" at 6pm. So i got the pot stickers instead. They arrived with human tangled hair.... i let the staff know, the lady took it away quickly and spilled the sauce all over my pants. They brought a replacement that was fine. And offered a napkin and soda water. Then my vegetarian sushi roll from the vegetarian section came with fish eggs.... i was very up set at this point. The staff didn't seam to see how this was a big deal, I asked to speak to a manager but was told non were available, they gave me a business card with no direct phone number and no email address. They took a happy hour item and the pot stickers off the bill. But i am very very disappointed. For a restaurant that claims to be high end, they did not seem to care about food safety, or cleanliness. I will NEVER GO BACK, MY FAMILY WILL NEVER GO BACK, and we will let all of our friends, and family know what our experience was like.

Awesome food, awesome service, awesome ambiance. Only suggestion I'd have for the restaurant is to slightly lower their music volume but that's a casual preference :)

Service just seems to get worse with each visit. And this is a “go to” favorite restaurant. But it’s getting tiresome to have such inattentive waitstaff. And this isn’t the first visit it’s been a problem. But it’s first time It’s been bad enough that I needed to write about it

The best sushi I’ve had outside of Japan. Try to sit at the bar in front of the chef.

The food was great and mostly reasonably priced. Good cocktails and good service. They accommodated my gluten free friend easily. I am a vegetarian, which was no problem here! My only real complaint is that it was way too loud. Also, there is a tofu dish “Goma tofu,” that is actually not made from tofu at all, and the menu doesn’t really explain that. I liked it, but I had to look it up later when I got home to figure out what I had eaten was actually made entirely from sesame. All in all, this restaurant is pretty awesome and I am definitely going to go back.

I really liked this restaurant. The food was delicious and quite reasonably priced. It was busy for a Sunday night, but the service was quick and efficient. My friend and I picked the two sampler menus (Ozen), which included 5 dishes (sashimi, miso soup, tempura, etc.). There is a lovely Japanese garden between the two main dining rooms. I highly recommend this place.

New to town and happy to discover this place. Really fresh sushi, lots of house choices and original stand buys available. Bigger restaurant than one would’ve think from the front. Noise level good easy to have a conversation without yelling.

We were seated about 5 minutes after checking in at the front. Ordered the Regent Punch cocktail to start with; I wholeheartedly recommend it. We ordered 3 rolls, Tuna Nigiri, and a Miso soup. Overall the food was delicious, and the service was quick and friendly!

Wonderful food...really top notch.
Asked for a garden side table as it was our anniversary and they didn't accommodate. Actually gave us the table next to the service station... :/ but a beautiful resteraunt, all in all. Order the Halibut Cheeks!!!!

My wife was very happy with the timeliness and i was personally impressed by the courteous nature of our server.
Loved the food and also got a nudge to order less and scale up if we still think we are hungry. Actually our server was right after 2 specialty rolls and an appetizer you were pretty full.
I would recommend this to anyone looking to spend some quality time with friends, family or special someone and have some nice sushi on the side.

The service was fantastic, the restaurant was lovely. The food was pretty good, but too expensive for "pretty good" I had expected better for the prices they charged.

Very slow service. All of our meals came waaay before the sushi rolls. Refills for beverages was virtually non-existent except for the water guy, who was A+. Food was good but would not return.

I’ve been here a few times in the last few weeks and the service has been lacking each time. The food is good and the ambiance is great but I don’t want to be the forgotten table. Water refills are consistent but that’s it.
