Diner Reviews
  • "We very much enjoyed our food at Hiro, but we're very disappointed by the slow service. The kitchen (cooked items) was quick. The tempura was hot and delicious. Three sushi rolls, however, took two sushi chefs 40 min! By then, we had almost lost our appetite. The waiter was inattentive, and the owner, while wandering around, never stopped by to check on customers. Odd. We would try it once more to see if it was just a bad night, but only because the food was good and pretty reasonably priced."

  • "Wonderful upscale Japanese restaurant in downtown Petaluma. Owner Hiro is a very gracious, congenial host and both he and his head sushi chef, Yo, pride themselves on the fresh fish and presentation of the wide variety of dishes. Caring service and nice selection of sakes. This restaurant would compare well to any in SF but stands out in the bounty of Sonoma county too."

  • "My husband and I had tickets to a concert at the Mystic Theater so I searched for a restaurant in walking distance. Hiro's turned out to be the perfect place for us. The service was friendly and prompt. We asked for suggestions and the waitress told us about a roll that wasn't on the menu. We loved the sushi and the ambience. We will be back!"

  • "Overall good food. The sushi rolls were good and service was excellent. The things I would change: Tempura appetizer; it seems they should have let it sit for a minute on something to absorb the oil because it was way too greasy. Other than that, great place. Bar; was looking forward to having a nice cocktail as advertised in their online menu, but the blender was broken."

  • "I've been here several times and never been disappointed. And the staff is friendly. But we were there early on an off-night and had an overly long wait for our meal. While we weren't in a hurry, it seemed strange, with only two other tables seated and three people at the sushi counter. The decor is serene, spare and peaceful (let me know if you puzzle out those odd, sideways birdcage art "things" on the wall) and the temperature comfortable. However, the oldies rock was loud and matched neither food nor space. (The back corner booth is under the bass speaker.) The music, my friend noted, was on a short loop, so we heard the same Freddie Mercury song twice.) Oddly, we had to send the water back -- it tasted off. Still, I'd go back."

  • "We had an excellent special-occasion dinner at Hiro's but have to report that the service staff stumbled badly several times and the food was very slow to come out. Our waiter did comp the mixed up appetizer order and did correct the wrong bento box successfully. Overall and consistently, the fresh fish and the creative and tasty sushi recipes always satisfy so we will give them more chances to tighten up what appeared to be a whole new wait staff."

  • "The sushi and sashimi was fresh and tasty. Nice that they have a brown rice option for the sushi. The server was very knowledgeable about both the food and sake(a first for us we). I would recommend drinking sake as it was very delicious and went very well with the food. Much better than wine on their list. This is definitely a place we will return to visit hopefully when the owner is there as the server says he is very knows a lot more about sake."

  • "Hiro's is fine. The sushi is good but not outstanding, the service is the same. Interestingly, in a room made of only hard surfaces, a large group (16+ people) right down the middle of the room did not make the place terribly loud (they were restrained, which was nice). Hana in Rohnert Park is far better for sushi, but Hiro's is a prettier room."

  • "The food and service are always fantastic. The best sushi in town by far. Simple, beautiful and comfortable atmosphere."

  • "Had an opentable reservation for 5pm on Sunday - we were the first ones in. Service was terrible. I mean really terrible. We managed to place an order for appetizers while we indicated we needed time to figure out the rest of the order. 30 minutes later our server was nowhere to be found, and three other tables of people had left because no one had come to take their orders. Our appetizer sat on the sushi bar for another ten minutes before arriving. We didn't try it, but from what we saw of it on the way or the door the portions were small and presentation was uninspiring."

  • "as always, the food here is really good, but, unfortunately, after going here for many years, the service is consistently bad nowadays... they leave food waiting on the counter for far too long before bringing to the table, they dont come by to check on whether you need water or drinks or just to check that everything is ok... it used to be that hiro roamed the restaurant checking on things, but now he just sits up front at the sushi bar and the result is that it just isnt as sharp an operation as it used to be... really disappointing... taking a break for awhile"

  • "Prior reviews of this place seemed to compliment food not service. Although it took a little but for our food to come out, the wait was not too terribly long. The only complaint is my husbands beef teriyaki was WAY over cooked. Still good but not really acceptable. I'm a vegetarian and even I knew it looked pretty "well done." If, and when, we return we will definitely send it back or emphasize "medium rare" prior to ordering. Other than that we have no complaints it was nice comfortable for the two of us and not too loud. Glad we didn't let negative reviews sway our decision to try it :) we are definitely looking forward to going again."

  • "This was my second time here. I really enjoyed the food. I'm starting to become more familiar with sushi and this was not an intimidating place at all. The one negative was that the server did not remember that our meals came with Miso soup and/or rice, so I had to remind her. This was minor though. I look forward to many more visits."

  • "I went here and the food was awesome. The only problem was our waitress seemed like she was really new and forgot our waters, almost didn't bring our miso soup, didn't have spoons when she did end up bringing it. We also ordered the calamari appetizer which came at the end instead of te beginning"
