Upon arrival guests are greeted and BYOB wine/beer are put on ice. The evening I attended we were also served a complimentary Mai Tai.

The open kitchen allows guests to watch the chefs in action as they prepare dishes. I attended the Japanese Kaiseki dinner which is a traditional multi-course dinner.  This evening\’s dinner was prepared by the skillful and creative Chef Jay Huang, formerly of Uchi and Trace.
