The decor was warm, but not especially interesting. Although the restaurant was nearly full when we were there for dinner, the noise level was only moderate.
Before we placed our order, I inquired for more information about the 5 course menu. She informed us that we would be served the chef's selection of raw fish, cooked fish, protein and vegetable, cheese and dessert. Kelly and I felt this was a sufficient amount of food, so we consented. Next, our waitress asked if we had any food allergies, dietary restrictions or strong aversion to any particular foods. I told her that we were completely open to whatever the chef chose to serve us. She seemed very pleased about this, so I gather that the waitstaff is normally confronted with very picky diners.
