Stuck In Plymouth,MA. Help!

Anyone have any thoughts on the Roobar in Plymouth? We have one in Falmouth, so I imagine it's similar but is the food good? I feel like the one in Falmouth is just slightly off, even though they're trying to be 100% on. Thanks.

Sushi of Gari...good sushi choice?

my husband said he'd have the omakase and the waiter said, can i bring it all on one plate (therefore making it 'gari's choice'). it was the same he assured us... we did get a lot of the pairings MMRuth suggested (so that makes me think it was the same), although we didn't get the eel. the roasted tomato and salmon was excellent.
as for price, ours was what we expected (we didn't order any additional sushi)....i did overhear that the 2 guys behind us spent $450...and the definitely ordered more after their omakase.

Sushi of Gari...good sushi choice?

just to follow up....
the meal was excellent. i ordered tuni of gari and my husband ordered the gari's choice. the waiter was really nice and attentive and explained omakase vs. 'gari's choice' (basically the same except gari's choice comes all at once and omakase comes as 3 or more courses). i can't really even recount what was on each of our dishes but it was excellent. we sat at a table in the mini room the right of the sushi bar and thought it was great. there was a big party in the other room so it was a little noisey but our room was serene. thanks for the suggestions, greatly appreciated...

Sushi of Gari...good sushi choice?

I've read a lot of the sushi posts and decided on Sushi of Gari. When I called (last night for a next Friday reservation…it’s my husbands birthday) for a reservation, I opted for a table b/c I didn’t want to wait until 9:30 to eat at the sushi bar (i hope the table will be ok..thoughts??). Based on what chowhounders have said, I chose Gari b/c it seems more innovative (someone else’s word, not mine) than Yasuda. I’ll be honest, we like some accompaniments with raw fish. I have a couple questions…we’re not planning on doing the omakase, but can anyone remember some great items to order a la carte (and I’m guessing not on the menu). I read that it’s great idea to point to other peoples plates and order like that, which I don’t mind doing, but would love some suggestions. Also, are most of their items sushi and sashimi or do they do ‘creative rolls’ as well… Bottom line, I’d like a memorable fun meal with my husband for his birthday. Thanks for the advice…and if you have a better suggestion that Gari, let me know.
