Ate there last night and the food was phenomenal! Had the crunchy tuna roll, it was AMAZING! The shrimp tempura roll was good as well. Would highly recommend the crunchy tuna roll, chicken wings, and for an entree the beef with noodles. It was very good. My only thing would be the prices for what you get. The entree we got was very good but very small especially considering it says a sharing portion. The service could have been just a little better, was a little slow. But luckily there was a bunch of different people helping out with our waters, plates, food, etc. I would definitely come back here. Their happy our from 4 to 6 isn't bad either. The atmosphere was awesome too. Nice for a romantic dinner or girls night out. Cool place.

We've had the pleasure of experiencing Departure twice now, and it has been amazing. The dishes are fit for all foodies, and the service is impeccable. (The cocktails were great too!) There were some menu changes (perhaps seasonal?), so it was exciting to try new things. We'll definitely be back and can't wait to bring friends when they visit! PS- do NOT miss the bibimbap!

Very elegant and upscale place! Service is great. Portions are small but delicious! Great fancy dinner for any company. Dishes are unique, not just a regular restaurant. Highly recommend!
