Went here last weekend to see if the hype was true. Indeed the fish is fresh, and the sushi variety is wonderful. Overall delicous, my only complaint is the long wait.

This restaurant has very good sushi and the service is always on point. You will need reservations as it's always busy. We have been going here for years; their menu is pricey. $$$ - You get what you pay for.

The quality of the raw ingredients were very much on display and quite tasty. However I have to believe that eating at the sushi bar with 1 or 2 guests would be optimal. We were at a table for 5 and it just didn't time...More
