A japanese restaurant that incorporates fare from all over Japan. My wife is half Japanese and we have tried many different Japanese foods especially southern Japan's Kagoshima. And this place had several items specific to Kagoshima.

We'll be back soon.

My favorite restaurant
The food is fancy with high quality, most important very delicious. We go there in special occasions.
Most recently was for Mother's Day. We love the Mother's Day special. The shrimp salad, sushi bowel, rib and yellow tail were so good. The four kinds of moose and jelly was a great surprise and was very delicious.

Great dining experience!
Dined here with my husband and 2 boys and loved the food. Great authentic cuisine with lovely atmosphere. It would've been very romantic with just my husband but the boys loved it as well. Great selection of saki.

Shimbashi Izakaya reminds me of some of the restaurants I have visited in Japan. Great variety on the menu and a very nice sake and shochu list.

This place rivals Izakayas in Manhattan, those run by Japanese chefs and waiters. The food was traditional and excellent, of course except for the rolls that are mostly American inventions. They have an impressive Sake and Shochu list. The only down side was that there was a female worker probably in the kitchen constantly shouting very loud, which disrupted otherwise nice atmosphere.

Many types of dishes. Loved the soft shell crab tempura, clam miso,
Kobe beef appetizer, octopus wasabi but overall rating is high for all dishes we had.
Excellent sake list (not wine list...)

Patio with an ocean view
Overall I would give it 3.5 stars. There was only one waitress serving a number of diners on the patio for lunch. We were there for the Plaza "15 on 15th" special sushi rolls and the server seemed a bit perplexed when I mentioned it but then after checking knew what I was talking about. The service was a tad slow but since we weren't in a rush and the day was perfect with an ocean view, why complain. The sushi rolls were good but I've definitely had better. Had there not been a special, I would say their prices were too high for the quality. Since I did get the special, I rate it overall 4 stars. The waitperson, although rushed, was pleasant and

Great views, great food!
If you love scenic views of the Pacific ocean combined with great sushi, sake, and cooked Japanese dishes then Shimbashi is the place for you! Located in the heart of Del Mar, we thoroughly enjoyed the food and ambiance!

It has been a long time since I have had such a memorable meal. We started with a bottle of Kikusui which is my favorite sake. It was served in a wooden box filled with shaved ice - stunning. We ordered a couple plates at a time along with more sake and each sip/bite was incredible. The sushi was incredibly fresh, the baked cod was moist and delicious and the waygu beef sushi melted in my mouth. I have never had anything like it. Our waitress was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. My friend truly appreciated being able to practice his Japanese with her - half the time I had no idea what was being ordered.
My taste buds are begging me to go back. Shimbashi Izakaya is my new addiction.

Sashimi salad was out of this world
We stopped in for a quick lunch the other day and had amazing service and delicious food. I had the sashimi salad which was loaded with fresh fish and very tasty, and my co workers had the lunch specials and loved it. We will be back soon
