Had dinner there yesterday, prior to catching the Lion King and have to say my party left very hungry and unsatisfied. Service was slow and inattentive throughout the dinner. I ordered one of their special rolls, with eel, avocado, caviar, tamago, that was called a Bride of Dragon, or something, I guess because it had black and red caviar on top. It came with a small salad on the side of the plate. Very expensive and not really very flavorful. I still felt pretty hungry, but judging how long it took to order plus the waiters forgetting to bring menus again after my party asked for it since we wanted to order more food, we gave up. Instead, we thought dessert would fill the void, but we had very mediocre tiramisu.

The restaurant wasn't exactly filled at around 6, but the host looked upset when we asked for a table coming in from the cold. Throughout the meal, not including the majority of the time waiting for the food, we were very rushed, and the server practically dropped the check on our table without us asking for it. By the time we left around 7:30, the restaurant wasn't packed, so I am baffled at the attitude. Just wanted to share this bit, because I need to vent.

On the upside, the show was fantastic and the pastrami sandwich I had at Katz today makes me feel slightly better.
