A word from 2G Japanese Brasserie
2G Japanese Brasserie is an authentic Japanese restaurant offering items made from original recipes from local farmers/ingredients.
A few years ago, this restaurant
under previous management was a reliable pre-ballet/opera eatery. Since then, with new owners, the prices have almost doubled and the portions have been noticeably reduced. Way too expensive for my taste!"

ordered sushi--out of several
staple fish--an order of scallops was "off" --tasted like it had been there for 2 weeks. I complained and they did take it off my bill. The size of the portions are very small --rolls, cuts of fish etc. We ordered tempura vegetables--were oily and a skimpy order compared to other places. I would never go back there again!"

Chosen for its proximity to
performance venues (Symphony and Opera), and for the type of cuisine (Japanese). This is our second visit, coming from the peninsula. We liked the service, ambience and, quality and presentation of the food. However, we feel that the dishes were small and overpriced. Hence our rating of just 3 (out of 5) stars."

While the sushi was good, the I
had a miscommunication with the waiter and accidently ordered some items. I had asked if the roll that came with sushi dinner item was chef's choice or picked by me. The waiter (who did not speak much English) said it was picked by me and so I picked one. When the bill came I found that was not the case, and I was charged for that extra choice. When I asked the manager about it, he could have said 'This was a miscommunication, but you received the extra food, so can you pay for it?' or something along those lines, and I would have paid. But instead he immediately began yelling at me and my little brother was with me, and he began to act as if we were attempting to scam the restaurant."

overpriced, tv screens made the
place feel like a sports bar. Service was fast, but staff seemed rushed and inattentive."

Chose for birthday: Chicken -
dried out, overcooked. Fresh fish selection limited. Waiter forthright and honest. Come here for Sushi/Sashimi. Other expectations may result in disappointment"

This is a great spot for pre
performance light fare in the Civic Center. Good sake selection, limited variety of sushi/sashimi dependent on what's available. Excellent fish collar and good ramen specials. Never crowded (pretty big room)."

quantities than other restaurants. Tempura just ok...batter somewhat heavy. Service great and informative"

We had dinner there before going
to the Ballet. Location was prime and within walking distance. The service was great and staff very friendly. The dinner menu was not as extensive if you do not want sushi, rolls or small appetizer sized food. While one party in my group is not a big raw fish eater - we thought there would be terriyaki or rice plates for dinner to order but there wasn't. They said that was only on their lunch menu. The sushi combo platter ($30) was small and the cut of fish not very big and the portion of the platter, very small. It did not look anywhere near the demos in the window - very decieving."

Came here before an event in the
area. Was craving for some sushi so I came. I never order any specials at a restaurant cause its always hit or miss but the waitress sold me on there Chilean Seabass Steak Dinner. All I can say it was oily, soft, flavorful and best of all huge. Was quite impressed. My friend ordered some sushi in which she devoured with some sake."

We had been planning to try this
restaurant for several months so it was particularly disappointing to order (besides sides of rice) 6 items. And find that 1 was completely unchewable (beef short ribs), one was a cheat (shrimps breaded on skewers - which were actually slices of shrimp, small) and one (our fault) that we chose without asking for verification of vegetable that was tasteless. When we added how skimpy the servings were (except for the tuna sushi - which was tasteless) the dinner was not only a disappointment, it was an expensive disappointment. The simplest cafe in Japan town beats them hands down! Diners should save their money!"

I have eaten at 2G before. The
food is always good, maybe a little bit pricey, but in a great location for the opera, symphony, ballet, anything at Herbst theater. The service is sometimes slow even when the restaurant is almost empty, but it was quick and efficient this time."
