We had a group of 6 and got one of the small rooms. Even in one of the private rooms, the noise was loud. There is a 'bell' for service. Service was fairly prompt. There is a good choice of food and sake.

Great experience, reservations could have been better but we did change the number of people. Did not work on open table, you need to call them. Once seated we had a lovely time. We (7 of us) asked out server to just make us happy and she did a great job picking a verity of wonderful items, When we were done and happy it worked out to $ 57.00 a person with a few bottles among the group. It is across the street from the Fillmore and very easy to do dinner and then the show. I would definitely go back.

We were charged unknowingly 20% for the party of 5! I also added extra 18% on top since i didn't expect such an insane practice and didn't pay a close attention to the receipt. I have tried to request a refund but the restaurant's management is unwilling to do it. SHAME ON SUCH A PRACTICE! what's a scam! :( very unhappy!

I dined here with my daughter and her 8-month old infant recently. We did not have reservations, and thus were seated at the bar....a bit inconvenient with a small child. However, the wait staff was very friendly and took good care of us, including a spill or two induced by the baby. The food was quite good and beautifully presented. Could highly recommend the scallops and the Hawaiian poke salad.

This place has a great interior and a real vibe. The food was terrific and the servers were attentive. There are some private rooms. The beer and sake list was extensive.
