    Being insulted by a waitress

    Some people shouldn't Force themself to wait table if they don't like it , it's a shame cause the food was good but we end up living with bitterness sensation in our mouth, I guess that's something you have to get used to in those trendi places where nobody cares about the feedback.

    Poor Service, Average Food

    We had a 10pm reservaton and did not get seated until 11pm. The waitress forgot to bring out 1 appetizer and 1 main dish, we had to cancel b/c it took so long. The food is average, nothing special to wait so long for. There are a lot better places to eat.

    Exactly what I needed

    I live here in the city and am always looking for restaurants that have great food but also great energy and a good scene- places I can go with my girlfriends and enjoy a full night. The General is exactly that sort of place! As with any popular restaurant, there was a bit of a wait but you could tell the hostess was doing everything she could and my party of 6 was sat within 10 minutes of our reservation time. The food was delicious- we ordered some of the lighter dishes (sashimi salad, sushi rolls, the cod, etc) and enjoyed it all- the corn Cobb is a highlight must try. Our waiter was lovely and it was an overall wonderful ny dining experience. We'll definitely be back soon!

    Poorest dining experience ever!

    I don't even know where to start with how AWFUL this place is. They sat us 45 minutes after our reservation time....20 minutes before a server even acknowledged our table...waiter spilled soy sauce all over birthday girl's white top...food was OVERPRICED & UNDERWHELMING (basically glorified take-out chinese)...and to top it off while trying to exit the dining room, which apparently turns into a lounge, was accosted by a bouncer. Just a terrible experience and a waste of time & money...typical trendy, want-to-be restaurant that WILL BE CLOSED IN 6 MONTHS

    You have to eat here!

    I really enjoyed this restaurant...in fact, I went there for dinner twice in two weeks so that I can try more items on the menu. The flavors are fun and different...for example, the tofu was interesting bc it tasted just like bacon. And the atmosphere is cool. Its a hip, chill spot with good food...What more do you need?

    very disappointed

    I was dining last night w my friend. we both are Asian. Basically all the dishes we ordered had the same taste, way too sweet and way too salty w tons of sugar and soy. I was pretty surprised by the fact that top chef winner created those food. We only had 5 little dishes but left half for all and could not continue to eat. It is very easy to prepare Asian food w dashi, soy, suger, sake etc but if you use them too much, it gets so salty and sweet and make all dish taste the same and boring. That's what we got last night. I am pretty sure that Americans are ok with it since they don't know much about Asian food. And...way to expensive. How can you charge $14 for crappy tofu dish. I was expecting to have Tofu 3 ways to be very sensitive Japanese way of dish. It was way too salty and sweet and coated w brown chinese sauce. Asian Fusion is a mistake. Go to Authentic Japanese place for Japanese food. Chinese for Chinese food. I will NOT go back there.
