Nice place. Downstairs is reasonable. Upstairs nice, but my wife thought it was too loud. Good, solid food

Great location next to the Newseum. Menu is interesting with a variety of appetizers and seafood entrees. Food and service are good but not great. We enjoyed our carrot and shrimp dumplings and spicy halibut entree with fried rice, but we were left wanting just...More

Enjoyed my beef stock noodle soup for starter and the 8 layer carrot cake for desert but the main entree which was slices of chicken and nicely flavored rice came barely warm! The ambiance is nice and the service very friendly.

4 of us had the lunch tasting menu. We ordered 13 different items. Each one was an experience! So delicious! True Dining excitement. It was my favorite restaurant of our girls weekend. If you love Asian fusion you will not be disappointed.

Small menu but with many options. We had the sashimi and fennel salad to start and it was great - clean food with imaginative twists. The branzino was too "bready" and you could hardly taste the fish - not the best I've had. Extensive wine...More

As with any restaurant/menu, it depends what day you visit, what time and what you order. But, 3 course dinner for two with drinks can easily run $250. Well worth it, if you can swing it.
