Praised as truly authentic classic Italian cuisine, Il Forno Ristorante's refined approach to Italian gastronomy features the finest local and imported ingredients. Indulge in dishes of our home made Pappardelle Pasta with Wild and Porcini Mushrooms or Grilled Veal Chop al Rosmarino to entice your appetite. Then revel in the simple, but rich flavor of the Chef’s signature entrée of Veal Ossobuco alla Milanesa and pair with a glass of wine from the outstanding wine selection. End with our seductive Mousse di Ciocolatto al Grand Marnier. The ambiance and atmosphere are enhanced by Il Forno's rustic, open kitchen with wood-burning oven, offering a warm and intimate setting for your dining experience. Whether you are enjoying a cocktail at our full service bar or dining al fresco on the terrazza or listening to live music in the dinning room, we are sure to make your dining experience a memorable one.

Only at SUSHISAMBA will you find a unique blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine, music and design. Hearty moquecas and colorful seviches are served alongside more inventive dishes, including Tuna Tataki and Wagyu Gyoza. Complementing the menu are signature cocktails made with exotic spirits such as shochu and cachaça and an acclaimed sake list, as well as wine, beer and champagne. Equal parts imagination and history, the SUSHISAMBA experience is truly unique.

Rich earth tones of orange, red and brown impart warmth to the cool and tranquil space. Thin tapestries of translucent rose fabric are embellished with flame motifs and suspended from the ceiling, creating a separate seating area perfect for a light bite near the large front windows. <br />Famous for its unique and mouth-watering interpretation of Japanese cuisine. Upscale Japanese fare is given a jolt of new life through an innovative use of ingredients, resulting in refreshing and exciting flavor combinations. Crispy Rice with Spice Tuna, an addictive version of the classic spicy tuna roll, featuring warm grilled rice topped with a thick layer of cool, savory tuna. Baked Crab Roll, for which succulent fresh crabmeat is wrapped in a thin rice crepe paper dotted with sesame seeds and baked to perfection. Hamachi Fusion with Soy-Citrus and Truffle Essence all artfully plated by Koi’s skilled culinary team.

"Great dining experience. We has Edamame, Crispy Rice Tuna, Kobe Beef Carpaccio, Edamame Dumplings, Kobe Potstickers, Baked Lobster Roll. All the dishes were excellent overall. KOI misses 5 stars on this visit because the Baked Lobster Roll was bland and fell apart for both me and my guest when we tried to eat it. Additionally the server seemed to rush us out at the end of our meal and tried to pick up the check 3 times in less than 3 minutes...before I had a chance to get my credit card out. Overall a nice dinner and I will be back again."

"This place is convenient if you are staying at The Refinery Hotel. The menu has some good items but not a lot of variety. I have been here before and the service is always just ok. Today I sat at the bar and waited 13 minutes before someone noticed me and waited on me, and it wasn't busy. The burger was good and I added brussel sprouts and bacon bits, which were decent."
