  • Apparently this was one of Steve Jobs' favorite restaurants.
  • Very solid quality sushi. The Saba was straight out of Tokyo and the Uni was delicious.
  • Arrive early if you don't have a reservation, otherwise you might end up waiting LONG time. We didn't and had the most delish and fresh fish and an excellent service from the waitress. Loved it!
  • If you don't have a reservation on a weekday, you can usually get at the sushi bar pretty quickly for a small party
  • Besides their sushi/sashimi, everything else is just mediocre and overpriced. I really think their chirashi is the only item worth ordering!
  • Steve Jobs favorite japanese food.
  • Prix fixe lunch is a decent deal... comes with a choice of salad, entree, miso soup, rice and dessert!
  • Place is solid. Make reservations!
  • their signature miso cod is delicious. i sometimes ask for the rainbow roll with the inside substituted with spicy tuna
  • This is the best miso cod I've ever had, even better than nobu!
  • tasty miso cod, you must try it for yourself, you won't regret it!
  • Ask for yaki udon. It rules!!!!!
  • Arrive right at 11:45 when they open for lunch if you want a table and have no reservation. Bento box (rotates daily) and lunch prix fixe are great deals here!
  • Specialty rolls
  • Excellent Japanese food. The sushi & sashimi very fresh and everything else good. Though service can be slow and off putting at times.
  • Plain sushi was great.
  • Solid lunch deal here. Only slightly overpriced :/
  • Lunch special ($16 for app, entree, small dessert). Order the yellowtail jalapeo.
  • great sushi place that I need to go to more often
  • Yellowtail with Jalapenos
