I have eaten here dozens of times and each time, it's a miracle. Consistently fabulous, only the freshest and best ingredients go into the exquisitely prepared food here. Someone with a sharp eye keeps the quality top notch every single time I've been here.
The justly-famed sashimi salad is a perfect fusion of Peruvian and Japanese cuisine, the Golden Plate award-winning cod is always a delight, and the little caviar appetizers served in a martini glass are as elegant as they are delicious.
A safe bet for a date or business lunch or dinner. Even people who don't like fish will find something pleasing on the menu.
To me, there are 2 categories of suchi/sashimi resaurant - 1.) Matsuhisa and 2.) everywhere else.
Absolutely 5 stars for atmosphere and hanging out.
Great place to hang by yourself and even better with a friend. The pool room, the art on the walls and the changing but always cool decor are worth experiencing for yourself.
Only gets 4 stars because the food and drinks don't match the quality of the groovy vibe here. The muffins were...just muffins, you know? Such a special place deserves food to match. The teas and espresso drinks were good, but food was disappointing.
OK, it took me awhile to write this review. I mean, who wants to admit they snore?
However, as many don't seem to know it and joking aside, snoring can indicate a medical condition of genuine concern. Inadequate oxygen while sleeping causes tiredness all day, overweight and many problems, including a seriously annoyed Signifcant Other.
Dr Keropian, inventor of the Full Breath solution, exceeded all my hopes and even made my Signifcant Other happy.
It has transformed my life. I've cut down on coffee and lost weight because I'm not tired through the day. I wake up refreshed and ready for the day (except on Mondays, ha!) I sleep like a log but no longer annoy She Who Must Be Obeyed because apparently I'm now a quiet and far more pleasant bedfellow. I'll take her word for it.
It did exactly what it was supposed to do. Cannot recommend it highly enough. For me, it was a great improvement over the other solutions available, especially the hideous CPAP.
Worth every penny.
The first time I went, I had arrived by Metro, so didn't have my driver's license.The man outside was quite snooty and rude. I am in my 40's and clearly not underage, but he turned me away brusquely.
Next time, armed with ID, I got to enjoy the Industrial Steampunk vibe and architectural glamor of the place, which was the main attraction for me. The music was excellent and the food and drinks were acceptable (not nearly as amazing as the decor, but that's OK - the ambiance is why I wanted to be there in the first place.)
Overall I'd say it's spectacularized "event" dining - the location IS the event.
