Very good food served here with a fun trendy atmosphere. The walls of whiskey are impressive to look at. I was there on a saturday night and the music choice was awesome. Funk and R & B, great way to get the evening started. I highly recommend the Hon maguro tasting which was the freshest bluefin, Toro, akami and chutoro I've ever eaten. GooglePlace - February 2018

Brilliant little whiskey and sushi bar, easy 5 stars for great cocktails, delicious food and an awesome atmosphere (and music). Very cool. Didn't know what I was doing with whisky selection but the waitress was really helpful, had an amazing rye old fashioned. Sushi was super fresh and everything else was super tasty. 👌 GooglePlace - January 2018

I know I have come on to this website before and made a statement like "this is my favorite restaurant" but fr, THIS is my favorite restaurant. And yet... it is more than a restaurant, it's more like an experience. an experience for the heart, soul, and body for true immersion in quality, love, and discovery. thanks GooglePlace - January 2018

Food was good... but next time I dine solely on cocktails and whiskey! The Dead Rabbit is a fantastic Smokey whiskey take on a Last Word. Herbal, acidic, bitter, lightly sweet— sandal wood and rose dance across the palette with a Meyer touch. Could drink a gallon of that. Yknow. If ye olde liver could handle that 😝 GooglePlace - January 2018
