Called on a Saturday to make reservations for that same night. I was told that they were booked and there would be no chance of walking in to get a seat. My husband thought he would attempt to make a reservation too. He was able to get a reservation at a prime time and we got a nice table when we got there. I was conflicted because we did want a reservation, however, when he was treated better than me, I did not appreciate the restaurant. Besides, the service isn't that great (they're slow and don't treat you well unless you speak Japanese) and the food isn't really spectacular (the sushi pieces are less than stunning and they can't even cook chicken right--I had to send back because it was undercooked). We can get better sushi at Zippy's.
