Hana Japanese Restaurant
Good timesHana was recommended to us. We sat at the sushi bar and cannot comment on items from the kitchen. Fish was fresh. Sushi chef was very helpful with recommendations of the day. Wait staff was very attentive. A little pricey for those of us used to "all you can eat" sushi places but an excellent dining experience.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMy son takes me here all theMy son takes me here all the time. One of our favorite restaurants in the North Bay. The best quality fish. Presentation is beautiful and artistic. Ken does a remarkable job with his special sauces and creativity with respect to how he wants his dishes to taste. The staff is the best. They are always helpful and very attentive without being intrusive. A great place for dinner with friends and or family. A great place for a date. Try the black sesame ice cream......oh my!!!!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways the bestLOVE IT!!!! everything is fresh and melts in your mouth!

The Best Japanesse restaurant in the Bay Area !
I took a friend from Arizona who seemed skeptical but he was raving about it by the time we left5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food and Fabulous SakeThe Food will entice you to go but the Sake will keep you coming back! Ken is master and can help you find the perfect Sake for your taste and budget.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful findAlthough we are locals, Hana is worth a drive up from San Francisco just to enjoy this wonderful food. Every single bite would be worth the time. Everything tastes amazingly fresh and clean. They don't hide their food with pounds of rice and thick layers of hot mustard and sticky sauces. The freshly made Wasabi and the black sesame ice cream are absolute must-haves. The service is friendly, professional and efficient. Even though they're in a strip mall, albeit an upscale one, the atmosphere is beautifully understated Asian once you pass through the doors. Hana is not inexpensive but I also cannot say that it's overpriced. We thought it was worth every dollar.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Japanese FoodThis is our first time at this restaurant. We found it to be quite busy upon arrival, looks like it is a very popular place with the locals and the hotel guests (which we were). The food was very delicious and cooked very well. We had the plate dinners and our friends had the box dinners. If you want a little bit of everything, I suggest the box dinners. All our plates were very colourful and you get quite a bit of food. I would definitely go back one day...not from this area, so it may be very difficult, but if we had the chance, yes it's a definite!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Japanese in Sonoma CountyThis is the best Japanese restaurant in Sonoma County. Their food is not only fresh but also very authentic (I'm from Japan). Eventually, this is very competitive to the many popular Japanese restaurants in Bay Area.
I'd like to add a special note that their lunch manager, Danny has the most superior skills to provide hospitality to his customers.
I'm sure you would be pleased with dinner time although they are often packed and service could be slow, but I definitely suggest to try lunch whenever you have a chance.
They have a special daily menu for sushi lover which is very fresh and flavorful, but you won't regret any of non-sushi menu (I personally recommend Ten-don, Sea-food Katsu, Chicken-Katsu). Bento box provides a great value too.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMHana Japanese restaurant wasHana Japanese restaurant was an amazing experience.

We go to Hana whenever we can. Ken doesn't serve up your run-of-the-mill sushi standards. He is an artist and conscious of sustainability and seasonality. Our server was knowledgeable and responsive.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Sushi in the North BayWe go to Hana often and it is consistently excellent.
