    Great stage area but 4 people to those tiny tables is a bit much. Food was okay not fantastic and a bit over priced but the ambiance was enjoyable. I'd go back again.

    If u are a meat eater, go for the steak and pepper skewers along with the shrimp tempura. You won't regret the combination of flavors.

    It's a great place to see live music and the food is good too! General admission shows are a blast but get your fix ahead of time. It's a small venue.

    A bit pricey but the food is good. If you don't want Japanese they serve burgers and other types of food during the show. TIP: Dinner patrons get first dibs on show seating. First come, first served

    Order food and bevs while watching the show. Shows are about an hour so servers come by twice on average to take your order.

  • Keith S.
    Keith SmithJanuary 25, 2014
    The place is open seating, so if there for a show make sure to make a reservation for dinner before your show - you get preferred (better) seat selection while at dinner.

    Great jazz. Overpriced food and don't order a martini unless you like ice chips

    Eat at the restaurant first and they'll let you reserve seats for your show. Even if all you get is appetizers and drinks, you'll still be able to get better seating.

    Food was really good but, the service was slow. There was a show going on so I'll give them that but, there were a lot of times I was finished with my water and it was awhile before it got refilled.

    The sushi is awesome, and are a bit bigger (and pricier) than other sushi places. Naturally busy when there are shows, but service is still top notch. Looking forward to catching a show!

    I love this place including when there's performers. They are normally locals and there's mostly a $10-$15 cover but it's totally worth it.
