    Filthy wine cellar floor! I guess they're consistent with not cleaning because all of the floors/walls/stairs are visibly dirty!

    I've seen cleaner bathrooms at the gas station!! Yet there's a list up that employees sign off on once they clean it. Stainless steel walls/doors,floors, & toilet bowl were filthy!!!!

    The sushi here is terrible. Spicy yellowtail wasn't spicy, eel avocado roll came without eel sauce. Better off getting sushi from the grocery store.

    Best part is...manager tried to accuse us of being a family he "remembers reserving a teppanyaki table and always to order from the regular menu."

    Reservation was for regular dining, sat us at a teppanyaki table and forced half of our party to order teppan yaki despite having 2 children, first experience here was great, second not so much.

    Both rolls I tried were DELICIOUS (crunch/showtime ROLL.) What I didnt like was the service. The server mustve been new & also didnt speak up. I plan on going back bc the sushi makes up for it.
