Great for the eyes, average for the palate
Very nice decor, ambient. The presentation of the dishes, mainly the pottery, are "super". Unfortunately, the food had lots of "up and downs": great grilled Branzini, but fishy Octopus (Nuta); great quail with scallion, but insipid and "watery" Soboro Daikon; a perfectly cooked wings, but "what happed with the chef?" tasting Kinki and Asari Sakamushi. The young lady that was our waitress was unbearably "dark"...no smile, no reaction,no...everything... A Japanese restaurant, but most definitely, not a place for the native Japanese. (And there was not a single Japanese the night I was there).

Pros: Decor, presentation of the dishes.
Cons: Too many: Too salty, too insipid.
