Love the entire staff here too!

Great sushi..long waits....
Despite our reservation we waited 40 minutes for a table. We were comped several appetizers... But then sat waiting again for our second round of orders (comped for our drinks for that). Excellent food.

Best Sushi in the North Bay
We go to Hana often and it is consistently excellent. Hana provides the best sushi in the North Bay with an exceptional wine and sake list.

Hana, Something Special
A little over-air-conditioned, but wonderful food and service! We go to Hana whenever we can. Ken doesn't serve up your run-of-the-mill sushi standards. He is an artist and conscious of sustainability and seasonality. Our server was knowledgeable and responsive.

Best Japanese in Sonoma County
This is the best Japanese restaurant in Sonoma County. Their food is not only fresh but also very authentic (I'm from Japan). Eventually, this is very competitive to the many popular Japanese restaurants in Bay Area.
I'd like to add a special note that their lunch manager, Danny has the most superior skills to provide hospitality to his customers.
I'm sure you would be pleased with dinner time although they are often packed and service could be slow, but I definitely suggest to try lunch whenever you have a chance.
They have a special daily menu for sushi lover which is very fresh and flavorful, but you won't regret any of non-sushi menu (I personally recommend Ten-don, Sea-food Katsu, Chicken-Katsu). Bento box provides a great value too.

Great Japanese Food
This is our first time at this restaurant. We found it to be quite busy upon arrival, looks like it is a very popular place with the locals and the hotel guests (which we were). The food was very delicious and cooked very well. We had the plate dinners and our friends had the box dinners. If you want a little bit of everything, I suggest the box dinners. All our plates were very colourful and you get quite a bit of food. I would definitely go back one day...not from this area, so it may be very difficult, but if we had the chance, yes it's a definite!

Although we are locals, Hana is worth a drive up from San Francisco just to enjoy this wonderful food. Every single bite would be worth the time. Everything tastes amazingly fresh and clean. They don't hide their food with pounds of rice and thick layers of hot mustard and sticky sauces. The freshly made Wasabi and the black sesame ice cream are absolute must-haves. The service is friendly, professional and efficient. Even though they're in a strip mall, albeit an upscale one, the atmosphere is beautifully understated Asian once you pass through the doors. Hana is not inexpensive but I also cannot say that it's overpriced. We thought it was worth every dollar.

Excellent Food and Fabulous Sake
The Food will entice you to go but the Sake will keep you coming back! Ken is master and can help you find the perfect Sake for your taste and budget.

My son takes me here all the
My son takes me here all the time. One of our favorite restaurants in the North Bay. The best quality fish. Presentation is beautiful and artistic. Ken does a remarkable job with his special sauces and creativity with respect to how he wants his dishes to taste. The staff is the best. They are always helpful and very attentive without being intrusive. A great place for dinner with friends and or family. A great place for a date. Try the black sesame ice cream......oh my!!!!
6/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Hana was recommended to us. We sat at the sushi bar and cannot comment on items from the kitchen. Fish was fresh. Sushi chef was very helpful with recommendations of the day. Wait staff was very attentive. A little pricey for those of us used to "all you can eat" sushi places but an excellent dining experience.
6/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
very friendly staff! and sushi is always presented beautifully and it is very yummy.
6/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gets Better Each Visit
We are regular diners at Hana. We like to try something different each visit, but also keep ordering some of our favorites. I just tried the Black Miso Cod and made the mistake of asking my wife if she would like a bite. It was fantastic!!!!
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant looks very nice with a choice of indoor or outdoor dining. The food is excellent. Seafood is fresh and delicious!

Best Japanese Restaurant
This restaurant never fails to deliver the best sushi,sashimi and tempura food..A go to for our family..

Delicious Sushi in Unlikely Place
I've eaten here before and really enjoyed the food. I would recommend having the omakase meal. I ordered a few nigiri and some specialty rolls. The toro was the most outstanding part of the meal.
The donburi with ginger beef was delicious. The beef was tender and had great flavor. The chirashi bowl was also tasty but not great.
I would definitely return here when I'm in the mood for sushi. Definitely a must try...!!!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love Hana!
It has been awhile since dining here. Ken continues to keep the menu interesting and the quality perfect!
We love Hana.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
A good restaurant
This was my first time. The food and service were excellent. This is definitely one of the best Japanese restaurant in the Bay Area.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always the best
Consistently fantastic, always fresh and wonderful. Great specials, love the rolls...love the poke and Ken's roll is to die for! Try it!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really good lunch
I met a good friend at Hana's for lunch. I was greeted warmly and seated. My friend and I were met by our waiter after drink orders and specials described. We ordered and the food delivered was beyond delicious! I will be back.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful way to start the evening!
We came up from Fremont for Piano Sonoma and decided to have dinner at Hana to start the evening off. Best decision ever! We had a wide variety of dishes, and everything was perfect, from start to finish! Those in our group who enjoyed the sushi said it was the best they've ever had! At her request, we will be back in December for our daughter's 22nd birthday and are already planning to dine here next August when we return for Piano Sonoma!

Favorite Sushi Restaurant and More
Love Ken's sushi. The regular menu is also excellent.

Wonderful heated patio area
Wonderful heated patio area that is considerably quieter than the inside.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Hana is the best
Once again, Hana goes above and beyond. Amazing selection of fresh and unusual offerings on the sushi menu -- many specials, perfectly sourced. Prices are fair, service is great. Hard to know why anyone who loves sushi would bother with any other place in the North Bay.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Like the others
It is a shame this is not situated in a better location. All the acumens are here for the finest Sushi restaurant. No reason to go on when all the reviews are pan on.
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Super expensive, but worth the cost
Hands down the best sushi dinner that I have ever had! The freshest fish and delicious preparations. I don't think that the kitchen is as incredible as the sushi bar, but they were still pretty good. Bring your piggy bank, as it is very expensive, but it is a special occasion restaurant that you will not want to miss.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Return to Old Favorite
The food is still super. I hadn't been for a long time and I wasn't disappointed. The best sushi and sashimi around.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our group went there twice during our last trip to the wine country and this allowed us to try a several dishes and a variety of sushi. We were impressed, and everything was excellent....the fish in the sushi, the tempura, even small sides like the seaweed salad (with toasted pine nuts??) or the small amount of wilted spinach served with Hamachi Kama. Hana is a little pricey for an every week visit, but it wasn't overpriced for what we got. We'll be back.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and server very helpful to those new to sushi.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best sushi ever
This place has ruined me for sushi anywhere else! Stuart is the best sake expert also!

ALWAYS WONDERFUL, AS GOOD AS ANY IN JAPAN.....MAYBE BETTER!

Wonderful staff, great food.
I had no idea this place existed and I sometimes play golf across the street. Suggested by a winemaker to check it out, I'm glad we did. Reasonable corkage of $15 bottle and also a nice little wine list of their own.
We both had the Omakase, it was like $100 person and had something like 6 or more courses, I dont really remember the exact number but I left completely stuffed. Courses included red miso soup, mushroom, egpplant, tempura, sushi, beef, pork, desert.
Dinner took about 2hrs for the two of us.
Next time we will try the sushi menu. I enjoyed this more than Sushi Ran in Sausalito. About a 45 minute drive from us in San Rafael but we will be back, the friendliest staff make it worth the trip.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Thank you for excellent food and great service! Well worth an hour drive. We are coming back next week.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best sushi in Sonoma County
Warm greeting from owner. Great, professional, non hover service. Fresh food, super attention to detail service pieces.
Great selection (although i did hear one table try to order a few types of fish which they were out of for some reason).
Impressive sake list (with attentive sake sommelier). Very affordable with options for chef's tasting menu that gets expensive but seems like it would be a worthy splurge someday. Bento box dinner is a favorite!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great for pre-show dinner
The food was super fresh and inventive and the staff was very friendly. With their proximity to Sonoma State U, Hana seems used to getting diners served and out the door in time for their concert. A word of advice -- the omakase takes longer to prepare so be sure to allow enough time. It's worth it.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Japanese Food
Hana has very creative and fresh food. My wife and I ate there on a Thursday evening for the first time and will definitely be back. It's not inexpensive, but worth the price.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Authentic, Extraordinary Treat
We had a lovely birthday dinner for our daughter at Hana over the weekend. The service was exemplary, matched by the amazing level of the dishes and sushi. We ordered dishes off the Osusume menu- the steamed Dashi and Uni custard and the Tokyo Pancake. This is what sets Hana apart from your typical Japanese restaurant- this chance to experience these authentic and extraordinary bits of Japanese gastronomy. Our daughter enjoyed the high level of sushi, and the less adventurous of the bunch thoroughly enjoyed the tempura, teriyaki, and sukiyaki.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
This Japanese-American Likes!
Whenever we're in the area, we always eat dinner at Hana's. We recommend it to all our Bay Area friends, too. Our daughter is a student at SSU so it's her treat when we visit. We even got her picky roommate to love Japanese food. Our server made some fabulous recommendations. Of course, she was kind to point out that one of the fish was running low. My husband didn't take the hint, and when he finally ordered it, it was too late. I always start with the Uniten roll for myself. However, everyone at the table always helps themselves so I only get one piece. My husband orders all the fresh fish sushi, including the uni. My husband is going to try to Omikase next time!

Best sushi I have ever had!
I had been dying to eat at Hana for years, so I finally made the not-so-far drive to Rohnert Park from Napa this past Sunday.
Stuart, the sake sommelier, greeted us at the door and proceeded to seat us near the sushi bar. We arrived at 6:00pm and it was full, but the noise level was extremely quiet. He made some awesome sake suggestions and the food came out in a timely fashion.
The quality of the fish was INCREDIBLE and I especially loved the mirugai, ike hotate and ika sashimi. Other super dishes were the grilled Hokkaido ika, Hawaiian style tako poke and tempura hirame-wrapped uni. The flavors were bold and spot on.
Prices are higher than other sushi restaurants, but with the quality of the seafood being this good, it is worth it!
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
It's simply the very best
We make a special point when we visit San Francisco and the wine country north to enjoy the incredible selection of fish that is offered here. We sit at the sushi bar and just ask just to be served. It's always fabulous! Not only is the sashimi top notch but this is a place when you only come once every 2 years you still feel welcomed.
