My fiancée and I have been here twice. Once because we wanted to try something new and this was one of the closest sushi places near our house. The first time we went we got the bento box which was pretty good. This review will be primarily on the second time we went, however. We saw that they offered "Kaiseki" here so we decided we'll be back to try it a second time as they require you to reserve ahead by at least two days for preparation. For those who do not know what Kaiseki is it's pretty much a Japanese style dinner where they bring out multiple courses involving various recipes, dishes, and styles. It's more of an eloquent way of eating and was $55 per person.
My fiancée and I had a great time eating Kaiseki here. It involved 6 dishes total. The first is Poke (Po-kay) or fish salad style with tuna and it was pretty good, we rate it 8/10. The second was our favorite, the Clam Soup. It's simply a soup with clam, thin lemon peels, and a few other ingredients, 9/10. The third dish was simply a plate of sashimi. Some tuna, yellowtail, squid, salmon roe, and salmon. This plate alone would probably be around $18-24 in most places. We give it a 7.5/10. The fourth was the tempura. There was sweet potatoes, mushroom, shrimp, okra, squash, and a few others. The shrimp was very good, the sweet potatoes was uncooked and was a bit hard so my fiancée didn't enjoy it. It came with a dip for you to eat the tempura with. Decent plate but nothing great, we give it a 6.5/10. The fifth was some sort of a grits soup that came in a pretty Japanese bowl and lid. Inside the 'grits' it had udagi, chicken, mushrooms, shrimp, and squid. All of which were juicy and tender and very good. The 'grits' is a bit heavy and isn't too easy to eat so my fiancée only ate half of hers and I finished the rest. We give this a 7/10. Then the last dish is actually just dessert. Which was two pieces of red bean mocha and two green tea. Mochi ice cream is just mocha ice cream.
Overall still pretty good, the pacing was good we didn't feel rushed nor did we have to wait between plates. Our drinks were filled. We rate the experience an 8/10 and would probably do it again with some friends at a later time.
