Apparently every third Sunday of the month(technically Sat night) they do Hookah night and have bongs setup around the perimeter tables outside the dance floor. While they have the hookah bongs setup they place Indian... um rap? type music. Even though I didn't understand a word they were saying, me and my two buddies I went with enjoyed every moment of it, even trying to sing too! The energy these Indian and Middle-Eastern people exhibit on this night if something I haven't felt before. So much energy, jumping, singing, and dancing with anyone. No one cared. Amazing club atmosphere. The bartender was quick on orders and made them nice and strong. Can't say he wasn't polite, just busy and needed to get everyone's drinks in and out. Parking was quiet easy, had to park on the other side, after the hotel next to it, it was a full club after all. Beautiful inside... you had to see for yourself!

The place was nice, after we finally found it. The food was pretty good and so were the drinks. I must say, the service was horrible, and I do mean horrible. Our waitress never introduced herself and never smiled. We were not given enough silverware or menus for our party and then we were forced to give this terrible waitress a $35 tip. Now had she done a good job, that would be fine if not more, but she was the worst I've had. Even after speaking to the owner, we were not accommodated for that horrible service. So I left a nice tip which said on the ticket, ""Learn to smile."" Now beyond that the bartender they had was just plain mean, and again not smile or hint of friendliness. Despite the good food, I will not return to this establishment and I do not suggest this place to anyone else.

(This is rating is for Aiko as a restaurant, not a bar) The food wasn't great, but what really got me was when a bouncer came over to our table of six and demanded to see our IDs. There was plenty of light in the restaurant, but he shined each of our driver's licenses with an unnecessary flashlight, informing us with a voice of authority that since we were under 21, the moment we finished our dinner we had to leave, because the restaurant turned into a bar. My boyfriend even went outside to get something from his car and had trouble getting back inside, even though the bouncer saw him leave! I resented how unwelcome they made me feel and won't be going back again.

I had a really bad experience with the service for AIKO while there for a friend's birthday. Our server said she could not split the bill so we sumbitted individual credit cards and cash. A member of our group counted the cash 3 times over and we submitted more than enough to cover our group's charges. She later return and claims that we are EXACTLY $100 short. Needless to say, we were forced to pay another $100 dollars after the management refused to believe us and kicked us out. I bet the extra $100 dollars that they pocketed went to her probation charges that she mentioned she had to face.
This place is unethical and corrupt. Please do not continue to support them.

I went to Aiko for the first time on saturday,my group had a great initial impression ,it was very upscale,sleek decor ,we could not wait to ejnjoy our night . well lets just say do not judge of of appearence we had the most horrendus service in the world . our server was very stupid she could not even configure our bill at the end of the night. she was also very rude she rolled her eyes at a person in my group.by the way the alcohol they use in their drink was so cheep it tasted like rubbing alcohol.

I used to eat around the corner at Genki but grew dissatisfied with warm cuts of poor quality fish...enter Aiko!! What a fun place! The fish it top notch. The service is actually pleasant. The owners stay sober and don't try to chat up you or your friends. A really fun crowd. Definitely a must.

If you arrive there early on Fridays, you get some pretty cheap yummy sushi. During this time, however, there is hardly anyone around. People start showing up at about 12 when it's club time; not too many people come in for the dining experience.
Service has always been mediocre.

Lesson Learned: Don't be too shocked if your food is really small and your bill is really big. If you want to save a little bit of money then I suggest you eat before you get there and aim for Happy Hour when some menu items are reduced 50%.
I recently dined at Aiko. Although I'm not a sushi fan, I would go for their Crab Kisses appetizer and calamari. They're so good! It?s the only reason I go. If Aiko comes up in conversation, I always tell whomever to order them. Since I hadn't been to Aiko in so long, I was craving them. I was so excited until the waitress brought out these teeny tiny, itty bitty crab kisses. Needless to say I was disappointed. Even the calamari appetizer had less on the plate. I remember the kisses being very plump and the creamy crab meat would practically ooze out when you bit into them. This time, it looked like someone had siphoned out my yummy creamy crab meat and left me with dried up kisses with a pathetic little bitty bump where the crab stuffing once was. To me, they were more like Crab Pecks than Crab Kisses.
I must have made a comment about their size to my friend because the waitress asked if everything was ok. I asked her if something had changed and the waitress said ""I haven't been here very long but other customers have said something about it too"". My friend, who frequents Aiko, also said they were smaller, ""Remember when we could share them?""
As I ate them really slowly in an attempt to relish the experience, I thought I should give Aiko benefit of the doubt. Perhaps the cook is new and didn't know he should put crab in the crab kisses. Or, perhaps I was just in denial things have changed and now this is how it is. :( Oh well!

Aiko was great about accommodating our large dinner party and our tardiness! The atmosphere was great and the sushi was amazing, you have to try the Red Neck Roll! As it got later the party peoplemade their way in and the music and dancing was really hot! I will definitely be back and tell others about our experience.

In my opinion, the BEST sushi I've ever had! The selection is hard to beat and warrants going many (MANY) times to try what they have--I've been there 4 times and I haven't been dissapointed yet!!. The Miso soup is great to start with and you NEED to get your mouth wrapped around their SS (seven sins) rolls...the name says it all!. The location is easy to get to and the atmosphere and staff are so very enchanting. Recommended for a group or a quiet date--you can't go wrong!
