    probably the best word to describe this place is "average" , it's one of those places youll say it was good but not great. Been coming here on and off since 2007, and have experienced the good and bad, but overall it is that place we tend to go if other places are busy. Price is ok, but with a groupon/dealfind/coupon etc... It makes it more worthwhile.

    Consistently ranks as one of my top 3 picks for sushi in Calgary- great traditional rolls and lots of interesting (and delicious) features and specials.

  • An Unusual Experience
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 10/13/2012
    Although typically a great place for a quick sushi fix, my last visit was less than satisfying. The hostess was distracted and indifferent, barely looking up from her cell phone to take my name. Before being seated, I was rudely asked if I had a Groupon (which I didn't). The wait staff was friendly but never around, they showed up about 30 minutes after the entire party arrived to take our food and drink orders, and ordering a second round of drinks was a challenge. The food arrived very late and the sushi was poorly prepared. The rolls broke apart easily and the sashimi was cut too thick -- not typical of this restaurant. Here's hoping this was a one-time blip in otherwise good service, although it may be a while before I'm back.

  • Spider in food!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 7/10/2012
    I found a spider in my food! And when it was pointed out to our server, she just said "sorry", can I get you another order? When we refused, she walked away. When she came back around, my father asked if we could get that taken off the bill. She looked apologetic and shrugged and said "I can try". I would have thought the server would attempt a little more enthusiasm and try to appease the customer. In the end, we did get it taken off the bill, but I had lost my appetite. The food wasn't fresh and the taste was below average. I will not come back with my family.

    The woman seating us was extreemly rude, ignored us and left unexplicably many times while we waited for seats. After that though, our waiter, was absolutly amazing and tried his best to get us the best service possable. The food was slow, but sushi is usually, and the place was extreemly buisy. The waiter gave us a free drink for our anniverery and another for having to wait, and we never even had to ask. The best sushi in town

    It seemed like our expensive meal paid for the upscale renovation, rather than the quality of food. The less than average food quality and only acceptable service undermines the beautiful restaurant at a prime location on 17th avenue.

    Full menu including a wide range of sushi and a large selection or non-sushi eaters as well. Everything was delicious and the menu encourages the diner to try different items. The food is reasonably priced. The drink list was good too with a variety of beers and other options. The service was superb. There is an opportunity to sit at the bar to watch the sushi chefs. Even though it is located on the lower level, there is a good amount of natural light coming in through the windows and a variety of table sizes easily accommodates different groups.

    absolutely terrible experience. Food took hours literally and the servers were sitting around talking to each other and in cell phones instead of asking if our food was okay or if we wanted more... or refilling of water. longest time I've ever waited for food in my life.

    The food at Fuji Yama is so delicious! They have many options on the menu - even vegetarian items, which is excellent if you don't eat seafood. It is one of my favourite sushi restaurants!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    I wouldn't normally write up a bad review it's just that the food took forever. My girlfriend and I ended up waiting a good 30-45 mins for my order to arrive. We were given the excuse that the tempura in the sushi would take some time to fry. I'm sorry but this isn't the fisrt time I've been to a sushi restaurant, and I've never had to wait this long for an order that had tempura in the sushi. If you want to wait long for your dinner to arrive then I would not recommend Fuji Yama on 17th.

    First time here for us, we ordered the sushi& sashimi combo for two. It was a nice variety of food, good for a quick dinner but not spectacular sushi. They do their rolls better than some others (california, inside out, cucumber, tuna) but sashimi was not as fresh as I have had. Our waitress was friendly, showed up when she needed to and did not hover =)

    Didnt like it. Wont go back. Sushi wasnt fresh. Service was slow. For being a new place they need to spruce up the joint - seems aged and worn down. The place was totally dead on a lunch. We got there at 1215, only 1 other table there. Says a lot.

    Food was OK but not the best in the city. For the price, there are other options in the city that offer more creative selection of rolls. The ambiance was very plain and lacked character.

    Fine quality fish & other fare. Prompt, knowledgeable servers. Would prefer more flexibility on the menu items, but the format for those that don't know Japanese cuisine works very well. You're guaranteed a great meal experience if you ask a few questions & get the pre-selected combos. Been there twice, would go back.

    I live and work in the NW and don't get to dine downtown often, so when SwarmJam came out with a special for Fuji Yama On 17, I thought why not give it a try. I'm SO glad I did. The server was extremely helpful, the food was delicious and beautifully presented, and we simply had a great time. Reservations were required in this case, and I was really glad to be able to make them online through opentable.com which also sends a reminder email the day before your reservation. I'm not a telephone person, so whenever possible, I try and do things online. Our only problem was trying to find the door to get in! :o)
