This was a nice experience. The food was very good. The rolls were to die for. We could have just kept eating them. For a college it was pretty impressive.

Reservations are a must. Leave time to appreciate the impressive entrance with fountains,gardens and benches. Dinner was delicious and the presentation was exceptional. The service, however still needs more practice.

Our meal was excellent, and the service top notch. We must have been luck to have a very hard-working student server. The menu selection had plenty of variety, and what we ordered was excellent. We had some marginal experiences at other CIA restaurants, but this...More
