Horrible Service. The waiter never once came to check on us nor did he pour our wine bottle. We had to do all of that on our own. Our water was never once refilled throughout the entire dinner, and food was only mediocre at best for the price we paid. The only notable dish out of the 8-course meal was the duck, but it's not special enough to return for. Their kobe beef burger was one of the most disappointing dishes ever. The beef was nothing close to a true kobe beef, which should be something juicy that melts in your mouth. Instead we were served a dry, bland, and greasy set of burgers that we put down after only 1 bite. We also had a reservation which we were about 15 min late to, and by the time we got there, they've given the table away to someone else. We had to wait an additional hour for our next table and the hostess was rude and incompetent. The restrooms also had no paper towel and were running low on toilet paper. The trash can was overflowing with used paper and was spilled all over the floor. We did not expect this type of atmosphere from a restaurant of this caliber. It's too bad.. I love the other Michael Mina restaurants but I will not be returning here.

Absolutely, positively, creatively delicious. Just what to expect from an iron chef. We had the rock shrimp, house cured hamachi, lobster tempura salad, seared bass, and yellowtail stone pot rice. Ordered way too much food for three people. I was astonished at the portions for such a swanky place. I was delighted to see they had a Morimoto line of beers available in a 4 glass flight, which isn't brewed in house (I think it's from a craft brewery in Oregon) but still very good. Service was also A+. We accidentally tipped over one of the beer glasses after drinking almost all of it, and it was immediately replaced with a full glass. I definitely will come back to try the omakase and get sushi next time. I think the place is $$$$ depending on what you order or if you do omakase or not. In our experience it was more like $$$.
