    This was such a great dining experience that I have told a few friend already and will be back! The ambiance is eclectic and tranquil. You will see both Japanese and French influences. White linen tablecloths, real silverware, nice china plates. We started with salmon tacos as appetizers along with a cucumber mojito, pomegranate martini, and a glass of merlot. Our dinner entrees were broiled salmon fillet in dill sauce, breast of duck in orange sauce, and the masterpiece signature dish, the whole fried catfish. The presentation of this item was fascinating, the preparation was truly gourmet, and the taste was amazing. Crispy on tge outside but tender and juicy inside. Not only I could eat the fish with chop sticks, but I ate the skin as well as the meat. The duck breast was so tender and tasty that melted in your mouth. The dill sauce on top of the salmon was one of the best I had ever tasted. Then we had apple pie with ice cream and coffee to finish the night. The server was very professional helpful and friendly.

    I think I had high expectations, and was let down at the end. I thought the food was ok. The catfish was over hyped. It's basically fried catfish with soy sauce and huge slices of ginger; not alot of favors. One thing I do recommend is their sea bass (special of the night) it melted in my mouth. The truffle wonton was ok the favors are in the sauce and the wonton were a little bland for my taste. In addition to that my soda was flat. Although they gave me a new sprite, it was still a but flat. Overall, I felt a bit disappointed for the prices we paid.

    It's been a while, but I needed to have their catfish again; marvelous! If you like fish and ginger, well it just went through perfection and joined you in a pond of delightful ponzu sauce.

    (Grade A+) Another restaurant that deserves an A+ from me. The whole catfish is out of this world. It's deep fried with Ginger pieces in between all the cuts. It's perfection. Been there twice within 8 days.

    The environment was not comfortable: seating was too close to other diners (even though there was plenty of open space), the temperature was uncomfortably warm, and the chairs were not comfortable or of good quality. The staff were attentive and friendly, and the food was decent. For the price, I did expect more complex or inventive dishes. Most main dishes came with random sides as an afterthought that didn’t compliment the main dish. It was overall very odd, uncomfortable, and unnecessarily expensive for the results.
