First visit here. I highly recommend making a reservation for dinner in advance, especially for a weekend night. We couldn't get in until 9:30 PM on Friday. Main dining room seemed fairly loud. Fortunately, we were seated in the intimate smaller area in the back....More

We were here with a group and had the upstairs reserved. We had appetizers and drinks in the upstairs bar overlooking the water - what a view! Dinner was in the upstairs dining area and it was all delicious. I would highly recommend!

We tried sushi and small plates, the four of us. The flavors were delectable. Nice wine list and varied menu, so something for everyone. I would go again.

Very good food! Very unique food options. Staff is very professional in serving. Kobe steak served with a hot rock to cook it the way you want. Plenty of Asian style food.

I was so eager to finally try this place but from the moment I walked in the door I was disappointed. The decor with the high top communal tables in the middle of the store and the booths read diner but there was a dress...More

This is definitely a must have meal while in Traverse City! Amazing service and impeccable food. We recently came in with 10 people and although they were extremely busy for a Friday night, they gave us so much attention and made sure our experience was...More

No, but they have "small plates" that would be appropriate for children. Basically they're just smaller versions of the other dishes. No hot dogs or PB&J however.
