Japonessa Sushi Cocina
Great Sushi!Watch out for the Diabla Say roll - this was almost too spicy to eat.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFave sushi in SeattleThis place is by far my fave sushi place to eat in Seattle. Not only is the sushi of a high quality and the staff are extremely friendly and accommodating, but the happy hour (which seems to last most of the day), makes the cost of the meal very low.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGourmet SushiMy 2nd time eating here. As before, excellent sushi. Had the Orange Crush, Rockstar (the best), Last Samurai, and California Crunch. All were terrific. We also had the Brie Tempura and Garlic Short Ribs as appetizers. Both were very tasty. Japonessa offers unique rolls that are very good. Would go back.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat sushi, great service!Down from Vancouver for the day and wanted to sample some of Seattle's highly touted seafood. Upon getting a good reference from Yelp!, we decided to try Japonessa since it was within walking distance of our DT hotel. What a wonderful surprise! From the outside, it seems very understated....but inside, is a wonderfully fun & well appointed sushi fusion restaurant & lounge. We ordered a few items based on the server's recommendation and were not disappointed. Ordered a few more and the experience just got better & better. Great food, friendly helpful staff, and an atmosphere that can fit any occasion. Will definitely recommend it to my friends who come down, as a must-go sushi destination downtown Seattle!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMReally Fresh and YummyReally fresh and yummy Sushi, definitely a great location right near Pike Place.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA great go to restuarant.My wife and I have gone to Japonessa a number of times now and everytime we leave satistified (albeit very full). Agreeing to go back. Appreciating good food for a good price this restaurant fits the bill quite well.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite place for sushiI will never eat sushi at any other place. The quality of their fish is so fresh and there's such a great variety to choose from. Happy hour here is AWESOME!!! this place is definately my favorite restaraunt in town6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI loved the food! Maybe theI loved the food! Maybe the best Sushi I ever had.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousThe sushi here never disappoints. The lunch/happy hour prices are fantastic. We usually order about 1.5 rolls per person. Services is always fast.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSo Good!This is our third time at Japonessa Sushi Cocina and we love it. The oyster shooters, lobster soup and geisha roll were great, as well as the service!5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWent there base on reviewNot as expected, price well. But can have better Japanese food around.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA little disappointed about the fooI loved the appetizers that we ordered, but the rolls were mediocre at best. I plan to dine again to give the restaurant another chance. The lighting is a bit offensive, better when they turned down the lights. The ambience was excellent and our waitress was incredible. Had a lovely time.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatI have only been here for lunch and it is definitely a hot spot for the noon working crowd. The only reason I did not give the service five stars is because they apparently forgot to assign a wait person to us and we sat there for almost 20 minutes before asking. Once we got a waiter the service was outstanding. The sushi is great and not to be missed if you like rolls is the monthly chef's special. It is a very fancy roll and be warned if they say it is spicy as it can be very spicy as is the current special. It fills up quick so for lunch get there early or make a reservation.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is awesomeThe unexpected mix of Japanese and Mexican was really well done ~ I wasn't sure what to expect but strawberry habanero in the spicy tuna such = genius. the waiter "ferry" was sweet and polite and recommended a very good combination of sweet and spicy dishes. Quick service, great food. I would definitely return to try more on the menu. Only one vegetarian item, but after all, it IS sushi dominant.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers DayThis was our first time at the restaurant and our moms first experience with sushi. Everyone was so helpful and great attitudes. The ambiance was great. The sushi was delicious. We had a wonderful experience and our mother is a sushi addict now. We will defiantly be back. Thank you all so much we really appreciate the hard work you have put in to make your reasturant a wonderful and yummy experience for diners5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAll i need to say is Blind Fury.I took my wife here for Mothers Day sense we enjoy sushi a lot. The service was very good our server always had a smile on and would engage in light conversation with us, the atmosphere was very much alive which we enjoyed. Now down to the good stuff let me tell you the "Blind Fury" was amazing the yellow tail was so good and the flavors that came along with it were perfect the heat of the roll with the cilantro sneaking in during the flavor explosion great stuff. We also had the "Laughing Buddha" and the "Crunch roll" which each were very good and id eat them again when i go back, its just the "Blind Fury" has made a lasting impression on me and i will be going there again.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat sushi restaurantWe eat here often and have never been disappointed. Service sometimes slow and noise level sometimes too high. But the food is excellent and consistently good.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMLove those happy hour prices!The Wicked Sensation roll is just that, wickedly delicious. We can't get enough of the jalepeno lime glaze.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWill certainly return!This was my first time at Japonessa and based on the experience I'm sure to return. Our service really was excellent, which set the stage for a lovely evening. We were impressed with our small plates, particularly the sashimi appetizer, fried calamari and uniqe eggplant-mochi preparation (and its amazing broth). The house sushi roll we ordered was a bit less impressive, especially considering the price tag. It seemed like Japonessa is doing a brisk happy hour business - great spot to recharge after work downtown!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy time any timeI always have a great time and food at Japonessa. I love the happy hour and its food. Service is always great, and all wait staff is very pleasant. I very much appreciate people and their service at Japonessa. Thanks and I can't wait to go back there!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my friend here as anI took my friend here as an introduction to the Seattle lunch scene and we were both very pleased!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWent here for my husband'sWent here for my husband's birthday with family. They have a great selection, large sushi portions (we all ordered rolls)' great dessert, and good service. It definitely lived up to our expectations (we heard many good things). However, the tables were a bit close together (we were in the back of the restaurant) which may get awkward, especially when the table next to you enjoys staring/glaring/or-just-watching.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNom nom nom!There is a LOT of good sushi in Seattle. Japonessa happens to have GREAT sushi. Not even sure how many times we've eaten here now! Get the Super Bad Boy Roll. Holy mother of pearl, it is amazing.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious as always and theDelicious as always and the happy hour menu can't be beat!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was good exceptEverything was good except for the greeters. They should take charge and ask who's next or initiate the conversation in some other way.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery time we come here theEvery time we come here the food is awsome!

Reservations are a must at this hopping place!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMJaponessa is my favorite sushiJaponessa is my favorite sushi restaurant in Seattle. As usual the restaurant was very busy but we got seated right away for our 7:30 reservation. There were 4 of us and we sat at the sushi counter and had perfect service and absolutely amazing food. There are so many good rolls that it's hard to choose a favorite but the Heat Stroke is probably mine. We ordered many rolls, sushi, sashimi, soup and desert. Truly everything from the miso soup to desert was excellent.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDecentSushi was decent. Order after 10pm to get cheaper happy hour menu. Get the garlic short ribs, they are amazing. I still like other area sushi places better but this was fun and I would go back should I find myself downtown and wanting sushi late.
Also, despite being busy, they managed to seat our table about 20 minutes early.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMJaponessa loverJaponessa is soooooo good! The food is AMAZING! And the sushi roll portion is VERY generous!
Very busy so make reservations! And the Happy Hour prices are unbeatably cheap!
