I was always curious about this place since the restaurants have Japanese chefs and when I heard about Garlic Fair, I decided to take the opportunity to check this place out. My friend and I had a 8:15 p.m. reservation on Saturday and the place was packed. W/o reservation, it would have been 45 minutes wait. Even with reservation, we waited about 15 minutes to be seated. We wanted to try many different dishes we decided to pick three appetizers from Garlic menu and one pasta from regular menu to share. Everything was sooooo good! This place reminded me of a hip restaurant in Tokyo. I would definitely come back here to try their regular menu.
