Two orders of the sushi sashimi combo. ($50 a piece). It was so salty that it was near inedible. My friend and I could not taste the sushi or the sashimi because of the amount of salt. I mentioned it to our server and she in turn said that she would tell the chef. To be clear, our server was great. When we get back to the office, someone said, "oh yeah, fish markets are closed on Mondays, they were trying to hide that the fish was not fresh!!!" Expensive and horrible but we learned our lesson. We went there because our favorite restaurant was, again, booked. We'll wait until we can get into Hatsuhana. Definitely worth the wait. I don't care if anything else in there is "good", they have shown to be deceitful with their food quality. Too bad.

I was at this place on a Monday night, it was relatively filled but definitely not packed. 5 of us were there to have a casual birthday dinner for our friend. The food was okay, nothing spectacular but it was freshly prepared and tasteful. The service was fast and considerate until after dinner. After we gave our waitress the money, we were all still seated enjoying our last bit of tea. Without walking away, she started to count our bill right in front of us at our table. We looked at her and said it is VERY RUDE to count our money right in front of us out loud, its not as if we were trying to leave without paying, we were all still seated. The gratuity was not included in the bill, but after counting she said ''You are short two dollars on tips.'' And with that said, we all got up and left without giving her the 2 dollar tip short because she obviously did NOT deserve it. It was a very bad ending to a mediocre dinner that could have been avoided at all cost.
