I read a few of the first couple reviews on other boards and wow its getting ridiculous that people immediately nit pick. I've been to Tokyo a couple of times recently and the team got it right from the yelled welcome, to the expensive variety small plates, and ability to have every part of the chicken tastily grilled. It reminded me of being in Japan but they added some creative cocktails which were excellent. The food was all well seasoned and the sea bass and hot rock self-cooked tenderloin moves here from Japonais. The staff was very nice and seemed really happy to be there. Since I live nearby, i think Sumi Robata Bar and the outdoor terrace in the summer will be in regular rotation.
