Very interesting menu - covers a broad spectrum of seafood, lamb - all with an Asian twist. We started with soup dumplings and crunchy shrimp rolls. Dumplings were excellent - rolls - OK. Moved on to grilled octopus and winter vegetable salad. The salad was...More

Thanks for coming in Edward. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your meal, with the exception of the octopus and the calamari; which is odd as those are two of my favorites. Sorry to hear we missed the mark for you with them this time....More

My wife and I had lunch here and would highly recommend it. The food was creative & wonderfully prepared. The service was great. They were more than happy to change some of the recipes to meet our food preferences. So, we shared the wok-tossed calamari...More

This was very good for a date night. It wasn't perfect only because the lighting was super-low (at night in the lounge area) and it was loud, so don't plan on intimate conversation or admiring the details of each others' faces. The food was amazing....More

Glad to hear you enjoyed your evening. I think "Chocolate Miracle" is a better name than our descriptive, yet uninspired "Triple Chocolate". Thanks for coming in, hope to see you again soon. Michael Blyth Maître d' ChoLon Restaurant Concepts

Hi Jason, So glad to hear that you savored every bite of the soup dumplings and the potstickers, though I'm surprised to hear that you didn't have the same reaction to the pork belly buns… that's usually the one that's guaranteed to elicit rapturous moans...More

What an amazing blend of tastes. The soup dumplings are a must, be I believe one could try anything here and not be disappointed. Come with an empty stomach and you'll leave with a full heart.

The service is excellent. I had the wagyu steak which was also brilliant. Although it is an Asian fusion restaurant, don't expect to find some real Asian food there. The dumpling looks Chinese, but not what's in it, and the skin is too thick. The...More

We ate there in the evening and I would say that most people were dressed business casual. That was in early May. I would think that during the summer you would see people with shorts and a collared shirt?
