"Miso cod was fantastic, perfectly smoky and flavored. Some of the sushi combinations were great but some just seemed strange. We had one wrapped with soy paper that wasn't so good, and the toro roll was super salty. Loved the avocado and honey roasted peanut, though. I thought this would be a romantic and special spot but it was pretty much just a duplicate of every other sushi place trying to be hip and trendy. Hard to feel romantic when you're practically sitting on top of the people next to you. I might stick to take-out next time."
