Rarely does a dining experience have both excellent food and service all in one experience but Aoi came through like a champ. Maybe it was my personal taste but I couldn't find one dish on the menu that didn't fit into what I would expect a competent sushi house to serve. That being said, the menu wasn't mainstream but a combination of creative, substantial, and fresh. Since it's a short review I'll leave it at that and add one more note, our water Eric(k)? was the bee knees, we made a reservation for next week and requested him.

I was entertaining to Los Angeles-based movie producers on their final night in Bentonville after wrapping on their new feature films. We all loved the specialty rolls we had. Do you need combination of flavors or some thing even the Angelinos had not experienced. Waitress was excellent and view of the gardens the calming experience we needed after a busy couple of weeks on Location sets.

I loved the Japanese Old Fashioned. Finding a parking spot is a challenge. Afternoon sun was bothersome where we sat...suggest a window shade. Food is a bit pricey. Server said the Lamb Pots we’re phenomenal...I did not find them so...mine were tough at the bone. Scallops were very fresh. Sushi rolls were average. I look forward to different ones on my next visit.

The experience is as good with the waiter. The food was amazing. We both ran out of water pretty early on in our meal and both needed some water throughout our meal. Also a verbal happy birthday would have been nice at least since we reserved for a birthday and there was not much celebration happening from the customer standpoint.
