    Whether it's savory pancakes stacked with local cheese or eggplant "fries," the flavor profiles are always eye-opening. [Eater 38 Member]

    Ask for the extinct menu. 10k will get you 5oz of bald eagle. Worth every penny.

    Want a prime-time reservation? Wake up at around 4 AM 60 days before your date of choice. It's worth it!

    It's gotta be one of the most fun restaurants I've ever visited! Long lineups, impossible te reserve, but so worth it!

    Even late reservation are fine -- the dim sum style means there is food on your table just seconds after you sit down, and you won't be hungry for long.

    "The food is 'dim sum'. Order a few hot items off the menu but also try the items brought around on carts or trays. It was all universally delicious and novel. It's worth a visit if you're in town."

    Quail, lobster salad, octopus, burrata garlic bread and birdseed dessert were delish!

    Waiters roam the room serving innovative small bites from dim-sum-style carts. The seafood selections are particularly worth flagging down for delicacies like black-garlic aioli on a fried nori chip.

  • Shirley L.

    Def get the sturgeon pancake, hamachi, state bird, duck, and ice cream sandwiches! Get a reservation or show up and wait in line at 5pm for 530 seating.

    You can't miss with the fish. Stuart, Katie and team do wonders with red trout.

    Try and sit at the Chef's table on the stools opposite the big man himself - down to earth guy - and he'll lead the charge. Killer chocolate and ricotta cheese - is intense!

    Don't order, just take the dishes offered to you until you're satiated. Also, here's a photo of the olive oil ice cream with rhubarb…

    The wait is too long and the reservation system really sucks. The food is just ok, I would say not worth the wait.

    If you're planning to walk-in, go early (5) to put your name down. Come back after a movie and a drink and you should be in time for a 9pm dinner!

    Dim sum-style dishes are delicious fun. Order off the menu for "state bird" (chicken-fried quail) or fried pork belly. – Green Guide Editor
