I've been to Sushi Rock a few times and have enjoyed it, but my experience last night at Matsu far surpassed anything at SR. The food was both fresh and beautiful, and the atmosphere was much more conducive to talking and enjoying your dining companion's company than at SR, where people tend to be snooty and attitude-prone. Our waitress was extremely gracious, and the entire experience made me glad to wander out of my normal dining options. Definitely a place I'd go back to.
Pros: Service, Freshness, Atmosphere
Cons: Closes early
