    Salt Food

    Maybe my taste is too sharp but I don't know why in NYC everybody needs to use this big amount of salt on food. Atmosphere plus the service are excellent, just hard to swallow the salt flavor. Also on Yellow tail fthey shouldn't use garlic, the delicious natural flavor was missed... Service was amazing also those exotic cocktails. Peanut butter bar as desert was delicious! Beautiful place they just need to cook without salt and leave the soy sauce at side. If I hear that things has been changed I would be back, otherwise cannot recommended.

    Define reservations

    Reservation system is poor. You check in at a front desk and then they ask you to wait in their overcrowded "lounge area,"where they will find you when your table is ready. Waited over 30 minutes past our reservation time - over an hour since we arrived - while we watched those around us (who got there after us) get tables first. However, the dim sum and appetizers were definitely worth the wait. The edamame dumplings, scallion pancakes, tuna tartar spring rolls & spare ribs were amazing. Main course was ok, nothing to write home about but the apps will have us coming back. Beautiful atmosphere too and good service once you get seated.

    Great food

    This is the third time I have been, and the food keeps getting better. Came for a very late night dinner, 11:30 and still had to wait a bit, not sure why though as there were plenty of tables available. I'm starting to think they make you wait on purpose to snag you into buying drinks at the bar. Had the lollipops again very tasty makes you want more, short rib, very good, and perhaps the best preparation I've ever had on the meat itself, absolutely perfectly cooked. Coconut desert was just right as well, not too sweet and very flavorful. All in all, excellent meal. A tad on the pricy side but I think you're paying a bit for the decor as well, but still doable. Very trendy scene, which is to be expected given the area, never saw so many girls in one spot either lol. A little loud, but also managable. All in all, very good.

    Some things really good, some just there. Middle ground overall.

    Went here the other week with 7:45 reservations on a Wednesday, still ended up waiting a bit for our table, so we had a couple drinks while waiting. Really liked the Fever, and the bald bartender with the handlebar mustache was really cool. Offered to remake my girlfriend's drink if she didn't like it (she doesn't drink gin and he recommended a gin drink). For the meal, we started with the edamame dumplings and the tuna tartar spring rolls. I really recommend both... the dumplings really reminded me of perogies, but in a good way. The tuna tartar was like some of the best spicy tuna sushi I have had, but in a spring roll. For the mains, we had the Alaskan black cod, the charred filet, lobster fried rice, and Asian greens. The cod was amazing... melt in your mouth delicious fish, on par with the black miso cod at Nobu. The filet was ok... the sauce it came with made it better, but fairly unremarkable. Lobster fried rice was also ok, again, nothing special, just some fried rice with a bit of lobster. The greens, really not worth getting at all. For dessert we had the peanut butter bomb, which was interesting. Had some kinda peanut butter powder around the ice cream, which was really interesting. The atmosphere was ok. The service was ok... the shaved head handlebar mustache bartender was great, but the waiter did not really check in on us much. Total damage for 4 drinks, 2 apps, 2 mains, 2 sides, and a dessert with tax and tip came out to $205. The apps and the Alaskan black cod make the visit worth while.
