    Hot sake in a bomber?!?! I was told that's how it's traditionally done in Japan. WHAT?!?! What makes sense with cold beer! Not rocket science.

    You are on your own to mitigate quality control from the bar as I did. Waiter that ran some food to us named Michael noticed an issue with our food and corrected it on his own. If it wasn't for him,..

    Happy hour is 3-7pm Monday to Friday, 1-5pm on Saturday, and all day Sunday. Reverse hh is 9-11pm Mon-Sat. Half off certain rolls and appetizers, $6.50 for small plates, and $6.75 sake sangrias.

    Off the happy hour menu - Get the Atlantic Roll, BBQ Chicken Flatbread, Chicken & Shrimp Lettuce Wraps, and a Margarita/Mojito. Love the sauce they have with the calamari! I eat it with everything.

    Mediocre sushi, kind of bland. Miso soup was also unimpressive... And everything overpriced for what you get. I only come here if somebody else plans an event here, otherwise don't go out of your way.

    I haven't tried anything I didn't like. The food is fantastic but make sure to leave room for their awesome desserts. The brownie is enough for 2 or 3 people!

    Not sure what's changed, but the service & staff have become ridiculously slow. Every time I come it's worse. If you're not hungry & want to wave someone down to order a drink, this is the place!

    It was ok. If you're looking for good sushi you're better off going to Tomodachi, if you're looking for a bar and grill, you're better off going to Bj's.

    Everyone is mentioning happy hour, but here's the catch, you're food takes 45 minutes, the waiters get stressed and are awful to you, and rude people hover over your table asking if you're leaving.
