  1. We were there last Saturday night, the food was good. We mostly had the appetizers... pork/vegetable dumplings, short ribs, hamachi, salads...etc. Dining room is small, very trendy, place was packed, they have a dj late at night, I think there is a second floor..noise level was loud..... Keith the bartender was very attentive and we will return..

    1. We were there a few days ago. I loved the calamari salad and didn't care for the pork dumplings (they tasted mainly of pepper; I had been hoping for ginger). My friend liked the hamachi. I liked, didn't love, the duck. The tuna next to me looked really good. I skipped dessert and regretted it. I had a taste of the chocolate terrine/cake(?) that comes with peanut butter ice cream, and it was terrific.
