The service is wonderful and the setting/environment is beautiful and classy. I thought the meat quality can be even better. We have already ordered the wagyu set and it was not as great as I had hoped. But still enjoyed the experience nonetheless.

We always like to seat inside away from the smoking area but for whatever reason sometimes we get someone sitting to the left side kind of patio but it’s still inside the tables at non smoking area. It’s discusting for us non smokers having to smell that cigarette (wasn’t hookah) from this woman sitting by herself close to our table.
