A word from I Love Sushi on Lake Union
Since 1992, I Love Sushi on Lake Union has been serving the greater Seattle area as I Love Sushi’s second branch.
On sunny days, enjoy the sunshine, fresh air and the water view on our lakeside patio. At night, stay warm inside, or try dining outside under heat lamps, accompanied by hot sake! The starry sky and spectacular view of the illuminated Space Needle make us glad to be here in Washington.
Upon entering, you'll be greeted by our friendly staff. Whether you're a first time sushi eater or a connoisseur, we'd be glad to help you navigate our menu, and steer you to something you will enjoy.
Great atmosphere, superb food, and fine drinks!

Diner Reviews
  • "Great food but they stuck us in the back room where the noise was so loud we wanted to leave."

  • "I have eaten here quite a bit so I was surprised when my group, which of course we had a reservation, had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. Obviously there was nothing that we could have done, but as a ex-restaurant owner, you should always take care of your customers and they didn't do one thing for us which I thought was rude."

  • "I'm never disappointed with the food or service at I Love Sushi (Lk Union). The seafood is always fresh and the presentation is excellent. Highly recommend!"

  • "We caught up with some friends who were visiting Seattle and staying in South Lake Union, and this was a reasonably priced restaurant in the right place with a nice view of the marina. The Sashimi and Rolls were imaginative and very tasty. We highly recommend for a catch up over lunch."

  • "The sushi remains exceptional, which is the reason for the 5-star overall rating. There seems to be a high turnover with waitstaff lately and we did not have a very attentive one this particular night while sitting at the sushi bar...had to keep looking for him for additional drinks and water refills."

  • "This is my go to place for great sushi/sashimi but I'm always disappointed with the service. Whenever I go I expect to wait for my server and sometimes for the food. Time to venture out for a new favorite place I suppose.."

  • "My husband and I really enjoy good sushi, and thought this would be a great place to celebrate Valentines Day. First, you have to pay $8.00 for parking... Not a big deal, just annoying. Second, the sushi didn't have a lot of flavor and wasn't anything special. We decided to get the fried ice cream for dessert and it was really heavy and took a long time to get. Like I said, it wasn't bad, but it wasn't great..."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Food was ok but not great. Sushi was dry, as in not fresh, not made on demand. Disappointed...."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The sashimi both in variety and freshness was excellent. The vegetable tempura was the lightest possible. The wait person was very helpful with choices. Couldn't ask for more."

  • "We have been to this place with a group of 10+ several times and each time the food and service has been great."

  • "Really pleasant location, love the marina feel. The food is always good but without the steep price of some sushi places. Definitely one of my favorite sushi place."

  • "Went here for Christmas dinner, very busy but still great service. We had the Lake Union roll And the special Spider roll, both exceptional. The Hamachi Nigiri was fresh and melted in your mouth."

  • "They automatically charged me a tip even though the service was poor! Very disappointing since I was taking six other guests to dinner and five of them were from out of town. It was embarrassing for me. Not good, not good at all."

  • "I Love Sushi is a very good place to have dinner in the South Lake Union area, but be careful because it can get quite expensive. I would totally recommend the lobster tail sushi roll because it was simply amazing!! The assorted sashimi on the other hand it was good, but the cuts were uneven."

  • "No better sushi around from our experience. We've been going here for 5+ years. Sit at the sushi bar with Taneda-san or the young new chef Masa-san (or is it Masaki-san?). Let them know if you want them to be creative or to stick to certain items. Service this time was excellent. On the rare occasion, we get a less attentive server (the one responsible for drinks and water). But it is easily overlooked as the sushi is the highlight. We never leave disappointed."
