Okay so I came here for my friends birthday, wasn't expecting much out of an Asian fushion restaurant, but it was horrible. There were six girls at the table we ordered the XO shrimp, wasabi steak, kimchi lobster fried rice and the filet mignon with udon noodles. The Xo shrimp was drenched with salt, the wasabi steak was dry, there wasn't any Kimchi in the fried rice and the filet mignon taste like pure soy sauce. The food was overpriced and didn't taste any better than PF Changs. The reason I even gave two stars was the ambience was nice and the lychee cocktail was VERY tasty and I recommend it out of everything else on their menu.

This is one of my favorite burger places - I'd be there more often if it weren't for the pricing. My only other complaint is that the menu is surprisingly boring - not that many interesting choices. But the food is great as well as the service.

A wise man once said "In theory, communism works. In theory." I was reminded of this sentiment on what I calculate to be my 4th time at Bubble Lounge in the past 2 years. In theory, this place should be great: it doesn't charge cover, it has a bit of gimmick (the champagne), it offers lounge upstairs and party atmosphere downstairs. But, like communism, that shit don't fly in the real world. The least expensive glass of champagne is $11 and comes from a bottle that can be had at Safeway for $18. Even a bottle of beer is $7 after tip. There really is no excuse for that kind of profit margin at a bar. Once you have a drink and are trying to forget how much you just paid for it, you will find there are many couches around....that are reserved for other people. So, you stand and get bumped into. A lot. There are the usual guys wearing striped button-down shirts with the occasional jacket. Lots of girls wearing cute things. And even groups of man-eaters hoping to find their next 6-figure boyfriend. The dancing is all downstairs. But seriously, that's not a place you want to be. It is dark, about 90 degrees, and smells like a pet shop. Many people spelunk downstairs and after 5 minutes they return to the lounge area. Being at Bubble Lounge, you also get the sense that the employees really don't want people there. As if they are doing you a favor by allowing you to patronize their establishment. One good example of this is the $3 coat check per item. My friends asked to share a hanger for their jackets. No dice. The shame is, with their resources, Bubble Lounge can do better. But, until they do, so can you.
