Not a bad meal. Not a great meal. It’s a neat place, the wine was good and not overly expensive. I had crab cakes that were good but not great. My friend had a pork loin that was tough and dry. Dessert was good.

Overall, a pretty good meal. I wouldn’t rave about it but it was better then average. For nothing else, The London Grill is right next door and drinks are a good time there. It was pricey and a bit strange, with a large brick oven in the front, dominating the enterance. But, overall, I liked it.

I’ve now done both the sushi upstairs and the “Japanese Steak House” down stairs and have been impressed with both. The sushi is fresh and tasty and the steak house was entertaining with the hibachi guys cracking jokes and providing a good time. Open late when other restaurants are sometimes closing.

Pretty good Sushi. I’ve had better, I’ve had worse. The location is great because it is right in the middle of the city and if you plan on going out later, this is a good dinner spot.

Again, went here with my parents. The hummus and pita bread was great. The meal was adequate. The drinks were weak. I wouldn’t go back. My friends swear by this place, maybe I was there on a bad night?
