Wow. We loved this place. Everyone kept talking about the music (which was truly fabulous) but the food was also delectable! Every bite. Highly recommend. It seems more suited to couples and groups.

Our first experience walking in was being greeted by Amanda, the hostess that night. She was incredibly kind and gracious and pretty much set the standard for the rest of the evening. Shout out to Heather who took our orders upstairs. We went downstairs into the beautiful basement dining room (faux cherry blossoms on the ceiling, Japanese spirit-themed decor) and met Zach (Zack?) the chef, and Ashton, the head server. I’m embarrassed to say I don’t remember the name of our server or the DJ who came over and talked to us and played my song (even though it wasn’t entirely in keeping with the mood), but everyone was sweet and helpful. The food was great, but honestly it was the whole experience and the personal interactions that made it. (Also I’m schlect at describing food.) They felt like good people.

Our waitress made us feel uncomfortable. She had a very unsettling demeanor and tone which made us feel unwelcome. Food was ok. Sake selection is well varied and seems to be of good quality, nothing amazing or very rare. The aesthetic is gimmicky and a sad example of cultural appropriation that is not genuine. The one redeeming factor was the music. The DJ was a great.
