The service was prompt and great. I could find no fault with it. My husband gushed with pleasure at all the courses of our fixed price meal. (Limited time only). Noisy, yes after a while...go early. Shushi fresh and tasty....dumplings plump with horse radish sauce ..salmon cooked just right .....And chocolate cake or sorbet with all the tantalizing flavrs you can imagine. We will return soon.

Way down hill. And what happened to the wasabi mustard lamb chops. Your new items are no good. To loud. Food untasty. I would agree. I have been 30+ times. I wouldn't return. This was the last straw.

We have been enjoying pod for about twelve years and it has had some ups and downs with menu changes. Until now it was always at least edible. It was absolutely horrible this time. The fried rice is not fried and tastes more like a risotto. The"vegetable" stir fry consists of bean sprouts, scallions and mushy tofu. The karaage is the most disgusting heavy sugary breading we have ever tasted. They took away all the colored Martinique and the inexperienced bartender could not recreate them. Stephen Starr, did you forget or give up on your old favorite, Pod? We will!

Short ribs are amazing. Sushi is great. Drinks are strong and good. Don't go there if ur cheap & like big portions though.

I am a college student and went with some friends to Pod, and loved it! It was quite expensive, so it is one of those special occasion places, but it has a really neat atmosphere. It is underground, with small windows, but everything inside is white, and the lights are all colored, making a fun combo. We did not have the service issues that someone else had spoken of. Our waitress was really friendly and helpful. I will return at some point... when there is extra cash in the budget to splurge. :)

This place USED TO be one of my favorite restaurants. More recently, it has become a hangout for college kids. You can imagine the noise! The wait staff is extremely indifferent to your concerns. It seems as thoughh the chef became obsessed with choppingg scallions for the miso soup because the soup was in definite scallion overload. Our waitress ignored our comment about this with her face practically saying "Either you eat it or you don't. I couldn't care less." The dumplings were cold. Needless to say, I won't be going back there any time soon. I should have known when I saw the sushi bar practically empty. I have NEVER seen that.

We weren't sure what to expect but it looked cool on the website. We made reservations and arrived on time at 7 PM and were warmly greeted and seated immediately. Trendy, upscale and hip... great vibes from the get go. The menu is nothing short of fantastic. The colored martinis were very interesting and refreshing; I had the blueberry and plum martini. The menu had a ton of very interesting choices, including the desert menu. My main course was the filet with truffles and it was hands down THE best red meat I've ever had. The sauce was nothing short of amazing. My date... well, I can't even tell you what she had because I was so engrossed in my own meal but she raved about it as well. The service was great, our waitress was very well informed on the entire menu and drink selection and she was cheery and helpful, guiding us through the numerous choices in front of us. I'm a repeat customer from here on. We loved it and will go again whenever we're in town!
