    Have been to Hiko A Mon many times, and generally have wonderful experiences. This time, with a party of 5, everyone's food came out but mine. I was the only one who ordered sushi. Waiter kind of ditched us and we had to flag another guy down to let someone know I never got my food! He finally brought it but wasn't really apologetic. Everyone else was almost done eating by then. Food wise, they still did not disappoint. Eveything was excellent!

    My wife and I had a night out and tried Hiko A Mon. She had tried sushi once and did not like it. I had never attempted it. Our server was very helpful in guiding a couple rookie sushi goers to an excellent pick. Our meal was great and we left stuffed.

    Wasn't sure what to expect even after reading reviews so I was in for a treat. A breath of fresh air in the suburbs, it is welcoming to both adults and children (and they were very well behaved which I appreciated). The service was top-notch: attentive without being overbearing. But it is the FOOD which is superb. Tried a nice sampling. From the soothing cosmopolitan from the bar, to the perfectly seared gyoza; the unusual but lovely shrimp dumpling soup hit the spot. The Angel Shrimp roll I believe it was called was a near work of art, along with the 3 pieces of sashimi (salmon, shrimp, yellow tail) I chose, but it was all very filling despite the delicacy. And what about that edible shrimp head on the side? Clever! Will definitely return.

    So, I was a bit cautious coming in, because I'd been to quite a few 'Japanese' restaurants, that ended up turning out to feel more Americanized. Hiko-a-mon was different. The atmosphere felt traditional. The way they served us - Meaning the dishes, etc, felt authentic. The food was prepared and displayed in a way that if I hadn't known better, I would've sworn I was in Japan. The food is amazing, the staff is amazing, the atmosphere was fantastic. I'll definitely be coming back soon!

    We had a variety of sushi roll offerings (6 rolls), as well as the tuna tataki and the agedashi tofu. While I have only positive things to say about the experience, the restaurant didn't displace any of my current sushi faves around town. Most of the food was very good, but didn't exceed any expectations; granted, we have exceptional sushi in town. I will give special mention to two items that are worth trying. The agedashi tofu, especially the mushroom preparation, was unique and quite well done. Also, Hiko-a-mon does something distinct in the spicing of their spicy crab (no idea what) that made the yum-yum roll one of the best I've tried; your mileage may vary depending on whether you also like the flavor variation.

    My third visit to hiko-A-mon was every bit as good as the two previous ones. This time I was more adventurous - as were the others; I ordered the delicious whole broiled octopus as an appetizer and others ordered the Westport sushi, which we all sampled. The service was especially deft and timely. All of your staff are well trained and highly professional. I'll be back for sure.

    We have had the good fortune to dine at hiko-A-mon on two occasions. There is no doubt that we will return many more times over the coming years. The seaweed salad is exceptional and not weighed down by masses of wilted lettuce. The tempura is light, perfectly fried, and delicious. Then comes the sushi. From the excellent choice in rolls, to my favorite the nigiri, you will not be disappointed. The salmon, tuna, scallops, and clam are some of the best in the city. Service is observant and intuitive in recognizing your every need, but never obtrusive. Writing this, I cannot wait for my next visit.

    My wife and I visited this little gem located in far east end of Westport Village on a Thursday evening. The house salad was typical iceberg lettuce usually found in a Japanese Restaurant. However, the salad dressing has a zing to it that made it outstanding. My wife had the Munch Crunch and I had the Westport Roll. Both were superb! We will definitely go back soon.

    Arrangements easy to make and when we arrived there was plenty of open tables. But, quickly everything filled up - not an open table to be had. The sushi bar was filled and the private rooms were taken. Clearly, everyone knows that hiko-A-mon is the place to be. Special wine list with great choices from California, Oregon, Australia, Europe, and beyond. Everything is top notch!

    I just recently found out that I have a gluten allergy and that stuff is in everything including some sushi. I felt like the staff was very accommodating and if the weren't sure on something they double checked with the chef to make sure it would be safe for me to eat. They even brought out gluten free soy sauce! The sushi rolls were wonderful to say the least. I have found a new restaurant that I will definitely be going back to again and again.
