Happy hour cosmos were delish. Sushi was good. Bartender was nice. Other patrons were cool. I thought the decor was funky and nice. I might go back to try some other happy hour specials, or maybe I would try somewhere else. It might be a good place to go to sit outside on a nice day!

Nice ambiance, not very loud. We seated at the upper level booth and loved the decor. The food are smaller in portion but very appetizing.

We had a reservation for a party of 20 on a Friday night, everything wet well, the staff were very nice and caring and although a bit late we had our foods on the table. The food was nothing exceptional, I had the halibut which was fine, and some oysters which again were OK (for 3-4 dollars a piece). The bread was not good at all. Some of the people complained that their salad was too salty (the salads were remade and they removed them from the bill as well). We were seated close to the band (drums and a piano) and maybe that's why I found the music to be a tad loud.

Went for early dinner on a Saturday - piped-in music was so loud we had to relocate a few times, but didn't make the experience any better. i had dined here a few times over the past several years and I loved the food, but the last time was disappointing. The sushi rolls were disappointing - I ordered a tuna roll with other things in it but the fish was very 'fishy' and smelly I couldn't eat it. nothing inspiring on the menu,except the tiny lobster bites; the hash that came with them as greasy and salty - diners do them better. Inspect your bill - we were overcharged but it was rectified once I pointed it out. That shouldn't happen in an upscale restaurant.

Got the pri-fixe for restaurant week Food: - Muscles - there were eight; two of them were not very good (sand and fishy, not quite fresh taste) the rest were okay; the sauce was pretty nice and buttered bread on top went well with it - Maki roll - cooked tuna fish with cucumber and arugula - the rice was a little dry but overall the flavor was good - Salmon sushi - fine - Roasted tilefish - pretty good - it was served roasted atop some cubes of eggplant and a green sauce; there were a few scales on the fish skin still - Blueberry shortcake - the shortcake was lemon flavored and ice cream was served on top of half of it like a sandwich; the blueberry sauce was really good and had whole blueberries in it - skirt steak - not bad Service: - it was fine; server was pretty nice
