Meh. Service was good. Food was below average and not worth the amount of money we spent. Some things over over sauced, over cooked, flavor was off. It was like they tried to alter sushi to make it for people who don't like actual sushi.

Okay food in lively atmosphere. We almost always go to the sushi place at 4th and Walnut st. because it's the opposite: No atmosphere but great food. We live closer to Ake but the food at Walnut st is so outstanding! If you haven't eaten at 4th and Walnut you'll be happy with Ake.

I love this place with my entire soul. I recommend it 1000x over again. I have been hooked for over 5 years easily. I do my birthday dinner there every year. Staff is always incredibly trained, respectful, & professional. If you are lucky enough to receive Nick you'll be laughing the entire evening. Suggestion: park in the garage above the restaurant & have them stamp your ticket! Free parking & short walk! GET THE SURF & TURF roll, the presentation you will NOT be disappointed!
