East by Southwest
Top Sushi of the WestI know, I know....great sushi in Colorado!!!....and Durango !!!!. Believe it. Blew is away and we are foodies, from San Diego who eat Sushi,all up and down both coasts. SOOO good. OK examples......Saki wine from Orgeon by the bottle, (real size bottles), for reasonable $$ and good. Great decor ans service but loud...hardscape I presume....but the fish is FRESH. Must have the Handgrenade....order many!!!. Sashimi choices are fantastic...Belly Salmon, Amberjack are my favorites. We dined and then came back 2 nights later. Wish they were in San Diego!! More expensive than "usual" sushi joint but worth every $$.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSushi for our grandsonOur grandson asked specifically that we go to East by Southwest.

Ray Family6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat birthday dinnerGreat experience taking my wife out for her birthday. Great food and drinks.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMNeeded a night outWe celebrated my husbands birthday so I mentioned that on my reservation and the fact that we were bringing an infant. They put us at the best table where I could set my baby bag next to me and the car seat and easily pulled him out and put him back in. It was a really nice booth table. The service was great, as always and the food is incredible. So fresh!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat presentation, food & serviceEast by Southwest/Golden Triangle is one of our "Go To" places for special occasions. Great appetizers, main courses and desserts all served with a nice presentation. Staff was friendly and very efficient without being overly obtrusive. Good value for the money. All seating is a bit close to other tables and noise levels during peak times require either leaning close (not a bad thing on a date) or speaking a bit loudly but there is also little chance of being overheard. We did not have cocktails or wine so can't comment on bar/winelist.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMReviewWe had the chicken dumplings for the first time and they were great.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best sushi & JapaneseThe best sushi & Japanese fare between the East and West!

Creative mixed with quality foods and wonderful service!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love East by SouthwestWe love East by Southwest and eat there every time we are in Durango. Have never had a bad meal or bad service. It is a busy and high energy restaurant. Even if you don't like sushi, you will find something you like and have a good time4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat choice!The staff was very professional when taking the orders and presenting the plates.
Very friendly, delicious food and nice atmosphere.
Will definitely return and recommend it to others.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMTop-notch sushi. Hard toTop-notch sushi. Hard to believe located in land-locked Colorado but I have yet to find better sushi on either coast and some abroad locations. The restaurant is so popular for dinner on and around the weekend that service really suffers as every table is full all night regardless. Wait is typically only 30-45 min or so around dinner and lunch is fairly slow with lots of open tables. Price is not cheap but also not outrageous based on food quality. Besides the lack of quality service when busy you will not be disappointed.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is always good, whichThe food is always good, which is the reason why we choose this restaurant. The Service is hit or miss. We were told by the waitress to let her know when we were ready to order, it was really hard to get her attention after that. Once our food was ordered it came quickly. Again, hard to get our waitress' attention after that and she never came back to see if we would like more drinks, dessert or anything else.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was only my second timeIt was only my second time at your restaurant in five years. We were treating a couple who frequently dines there. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our friends recommendations for appetizers and the amazing entrees. Congratulations on providing a great adventure in dining.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEXSW excels in sushi and JapaneseEXSW excels in sushi and Japanese cuisine ... better than most prime sushi bars that I've frequented on either coast!12/5/2012 12:00:00 AM
