Impressed my party
Submitted Sunday, February 8, 2009 - 6:15am [Dine in]

Kudos to their way of dealing with large parties. My experience here was more than expected. Two weeks ago, I had called to make a reservation for a group of 22 people. I was origionally not too thrilled when they said that they would call me back to confirm my reservation but the call didnt happen until almost a day later. However when we got the call, I was thrilled at their attention to detail with our group, asking about the size of our party and if they needed to accomodate to any vegetarians or even individual billing (which i was really surprised, since we had 20+ people). All in all, because this was a budgetted company event, they had offered methods to having payment arranged. The call was no more than 10 minutes but I was happy to have spoken with them to reassure that my group would be taken care of. Well done here.

When we came, they had everything ready to go. The server said that they would have food prepared, we just had to let them know when we were ready to get started. They provided a similar lecture to my fellow colleagues that they had for me when I first came here. It was like going back to school. All in all, the server was attentive, seemed like she was with us the whole time during the two hour dining session they allocated for us.

We stepped out at about 27 bucks a head with drinks, food and tips all in. Not bad for what we got. I wished they would actually add more variety of meats to the menu. Its certainly worth it but I cant see myself coming back too often and cooking my own food.

All in all, we had a great time and we'll become regulars, although maybe every three months.

Cost a lot of money

This place was like a catcus club except its decked out. The food quality was mediocre, below the average at a local cactus or earls.

It wasnt full, at 9pm on Friday night, it was surprising to see it wasnt busy. Overall it was ok but with the good reviews, I wanted to try but realized it was nothing more than a realy nice place.

The food was okay. Nothing really impressed unfortunitely other than the decor. The steak of course was done well and was seasoned well. The pop was bottomless and that was important but aside from that. The rests of the night was quite on the average.

Despite the fact that the music wasnt too extremely loud, the servers could not hear me at all. The hostess I had to say was beautiful and Asian. Unique!

Value was fair at just over 100 bucks for two entree, an appetizer and a caesar.

This time it wasnt as impressive
Submitted Sunday, February 1, 2009 - 4:15pm [Dine in]

Been to this restuarnat many times in the past years, both new and old location. Each time has a good impression on its own. The service was usually good and even though it is expensive, it was well worth the pride much like drinking a starbucks coffee over a McD.

This time, coming with guests of mine. Actually my aunt and uncle, food critics in their own right, picky as heck, it fell flat on my face. Although we were promptly seated and in our booth as requested, no server came for 10 minutes. As embarrassing as it is, we had to wave to flag a server. This is not only seen as rude to the server but annoying in such a prestigous restaurant. BUT unfortunitely, we had no choice since we had nobody to help us.

The food was decent, it wasnt as "awesome" as I would have hoped it to be. We had a vegetarian in our family so we ordered a chefs selection for her and two 150 tojos selection.

Frankly, the money wasnt the problem tonight, we just wanted to have the best for my family. 5 of us, the bill was 600 dollars and yes we were full but the items were not nearly as impressive as they should of been or i would have hoped they would be.

The only uniqueness was the blue fin toro for 79 bucks, as an a la carte item. We also had a few nigiri and cones that were good.

WE think it was a solid restaurant. However it isnt always easy to deliver prefection everytime.
