Extremely slow service at lunch. The wait staff was rude and I had to get up several times to get silverware, a refill and condiments. The food was mediocre.

Fabulous! Lobster Dynamite will not disappoint. Kay is the best and Boyd is the best chef. Heck, the whole staff is super friendly and great service

Everything was great here, the seating was uncrowded meaning we weren't stacked on top of each other. It is a relatively small place to dine. The wait staff were on top of their game and we didn't have to wait long for anything. We placed...More

Have been eating at Aka for a number of years. This place hands down offers the best sushi in town. Rolando, Stephanie and Tonio go above and beyond in creating rolls for the guests. Hibachi food is good however, sushi bar is my fave. Their...More
