  • "Luckily the food is outstanding that I keep coming back. Service is definitely something they want to work on. Polite but not timely and they tend to forget about you and not let you know where things are."

  • "Our family dined at Izanami on Friday night - yes it was Valentines Day too, but the staffing for a Friday was noticeably low. We waited close to half an hour to get our order taken and had almost no followup service during the meal. It appeared there was only one server for the entire front dining section - and that server was also filing the role of host/greeter. I couldn't tell if there were any different servers in the back section or not. It was significant the only thing we got quickly was the bill. Previous visits were much more enjoyable."

  • "She said it was not high quality. The sushi fish was fresh"

  • "But the food was excellent. Most of my table had sushi and I had a bowl of Ramen. Everyone was satisfied. However, this restaurant lost points because of service. We were seated and given menus then ignored for the next ten minutes. No drinks, no "Hi, I'm your waitress", nothing. Only once we started commenting (loudly) did we get service and service afterwards continued in an unhurried pace. Not great. Don't let the reputation of the food suffer because the service is slow!"

  • "The restaurant smelled like rotting fish as soon as we stepped in. The sushi was mediocre, the nigiri was warm, and the ramen had no flavor - it was more like an oily and spicy water and the noodles were al dente."

  • "Our server, Jenny, was great. She came back at appropriate times (not when we had food in our mouths) checking on how we were enjoying the food and our sake flights. It's unfortunate that the only option for ramen was made with a beef broth. It would have been nice to have a veg-option that wasn't cold noodles."

  • "We ordered 2 soups, 1 salad, edamame and 4 sushi rolls plus Saki and we all had waters. The soup was never delivered to our table. The dressing on the salad was a mix of ginger and garlic with a bit of a smoky flavor. I didn't care for it but my friends liked it. The sushi was underwhelming. There was no real flavor, and it didn't taste fresh. My friend wanted to order a second Saki but had to wait forever to do it. The waiter never refilled our water. When the bill came, we were charged for the soups and had to tell the waiter to take them off since we never got them. To sum it up, there are way better sushi places. I wouldn't go back here."

  • "Husband and I were craving sushi and found Izanami. We were seated promptly when we arrived. There were large parties: BDay party in a backroom; four large groups in the main dining area; plus families with little kids. Limited seats at the sushi bar. Waitresses were friendly, but service was a bit slow (there was only two of them; they could use one more waitress). We ordered 3 specialty rolls, sashimi, and 1 nigiri. The rolls were outstanding and the fish was very fresh. Prices are a bit more than where we usually go for sushi, but well worth the extra money. Had tiramisu for dessert that wasn't completely defrosted, but still tasted great. We'll be back again for excellent sushi!"
