Sushi Ann happily accepted my lunch reservation the morning of for a table for two. No mention of anything special or any potential delays. Turned up on time and was seated promptly - meanwhile there were several other empty tables, which remained that way. Once seated, our waitress mumbled something about there being slow service in the kitchen today but if we took a special it might be faster. I couldn't understand her and since she was all smiles I basically thought nothing of it. We ordered and then we waited. And waited. And waited. The waitress came by periodically and gave us a shrug, like sorry, you didn't expect fast food, did you? When I asked for an approximate wait time she just said "sorry", and I had to basically push her to ask the chefs for an ETA. Turns out after 1 hour they hadn't started our order and still had a dozen or so before us. Had to get back to the office within the half hour or so, so this would never work. Really annoying service, smiles with no promises, and the free edamame were overcooked and oversalted. Thankfully I got out of there paying only $1 to the coat check guy. This place doesn't deserve any more of my money than that. Can only base my food rating on those crappy edamame.

A $35 incredible value for a prix fix dinner, where you can chose from soup and probably one of the freshest salads Ive had in a long time with such a unique and delicious ginger dressing. I then chose the marinated black cod, cooked to perfection with a marinade that just makes you want to lick your chop sticks. You also get the choice of two rolls. The fatty tuna just disintegrates in your mouth and the salmon roe roll was just as tasty. Ice cream for desert.

Traditional setting. Friednly yet very professional service. The best of all is their sushi and sashimi! Don't expect to see any fusion non sense on their menu. This is the place where people enjoy the flavor of the freshest fishes and their beautiful preparation by skillful sushi chefs. I would not personaly recommend anything that is written on the menu, which can be pretty ordinary. Instead, you should first ask for fish of the day or your favorite fish and seafood to a sushi chef and make a small platter called "omakase" (for this reason, it's best to get a seat at the counter so that you can communicate with a chef throughout the meal). From there, you can start ordering your rushi piece by piece and enjoy them with a great sake they have. We were really satisfied with everything we had and great conversation with a chef and staffs. I cannot wait to go back and indulge myself with their truely authentic sushi.

If you want to have the best sushi / sashimi with the best Japanese service, I strongly recommend this place. I felt like I was having dinner in Japan! Professional sushi masters are there! Fresh and tasty sashimi, and not over priced.
