Great food. Best poke bowl around. Everything always seems fresh and appealing presentation. Yummy cocktail list. And last but not least, AMAZING service from Emma !!


Food was amazing Service was great. The manager visited our table to check in the service. Such a great experience. I highly recommended the ahi poke bowl.


Love the coconut shrimp. Easy order, pick your seat and the food is out quickly but you are not rushed. Friendly staff makes this an enjoyable relaxing meal.
