Was interested in eating at this resturant, however wanted to see if anyone had any reviews of the place before I go. Is the food good? Do they take reservations (I would call and ask, but I have not been able to find a phone number online)? Service good?

Thanks

Ate there tonight. Wait was about 10 minutes. Food was good. The waitress was friendly, however we asked her a couple of questions about the menu and she did not know the answer. Instead of trying to find the answer she just shurked her shoulders and walked away. Price was about $55 for two (no alcohol beverages were purchased).

$55 for two people? What did you eat? And I hope you didn't tip that stupid waitress.

I went there this past week and had a horrible experience. We had to ask to be seated,the wait for the food was crazy. The only thing good about the food was the rice. But most of all the waiter was awful. Then my belly hurt most of the day.

Although this isn't the resturants fault, the parking is terrible. I would much rather drive to the Japanese Resturant in Lexington and get to park in their parking lot, then to drive circles in hopes of finding a place to park that is not a hike. I don't mind walking, but it is riduculous that you have to park so far away.

Parking will kill Kotos and Buf. Wild Wings.

It is extremely loud, you can hardly hear the other people at your table for the waterfall. Service was slow (and at least one of the waiters should learn about deodorant), we didn't get everything we ordered but were charged for it (had to have it taken off the bill). The only choice for rice is fried, apparently it's a Japanese restaurant without a rice steamer. Overall the food was only average. If you want sushi or habachi style dining spend the extra 20 minutes to drive to Lexington. Dinner for two was fifty bucks.

I see a pattern. Seems like all the new sit-down type restaurants are getting bad service reviews. Maybe it's exactly like one other person said about Logans.... maybe it DOES take a while to get everything smooth. I get frustrated with these types of things too... but maybe we all just need to have some patience and understanding, knowing that, when we go to these new places they're still babies, and everyone's still learning.

I ate dinner there. It is pricey. Food is average. I had drinks at the bar. The bartender said he was from Vegas and could mix me any drink I wanted "just name it". The first drink I told him I wanted (painkiller) he had never heard of. He did offer to look up how to make, but I told him not to bother, just mix me something different. He mixed a pineapple and rum....

They couldn't do Pusser's dark rum, coconut, orange juice, and pineapple juice?

Guess not....bartender said he had never heard of it. I almost laughed out loud....especially since he was carrying on about being from Vegas and able to make any kind of drink.
