  • "We decided last minute to go here and got a reservation on open table. Right after we walked in it got very busy. Service was good. We did not feel rushed. The sushi was delicious! We will definitely go back!"

  • "Maybe my expectations are off, but I expect when I make a reservation, I'd expect to get seated close to that time. Not here. Upon arriving 15 minutes early we were told it would be a 20 minute wait. We then proceeded to watch others get seated before us. Finally seated 30 minutes after our reservation time (waiting for 45 mins total) we were sitting down. The server came promptly to greet us but when we asked for just a moment to look over the wine list, we didn't realize that would translate to another 30 minute wait. All in all, we got food an hour and a half AFTER our reservation time which by then it was HH time, but do you think they honored those prices, no. Terrible service and the food was fair. Not a good first impression."

  • "Sakana's menu is fantastic--maybe the best sushi bar in Twin Cities. Entrees like miso cod and "Forbidden Love" are delicious and as good as you would find at Nobu venues. It's kitchen serves until 10pm so it's one of the few places in Wayzata where you can dine at a later hour. The servers are wonderful."

  • "We previously enjoyed Sakana, but sadly, likely will not be returning. We came for dinner with a Groupon. Upon arrival, they tried to add extra restrictions to its use. We asked to speak with someone, and the server that came out was combative. We left without eating and asked for a call from a manager. Manager didn't call. When we called to follow up, he apologized, asked us to return, and said he would be there to "take care" of us at that visit. When we arrived for the reservation we made directly with him, he wasn't working and nothing was done in regards to our prior experience. There are too many other good options nearby to make it worth eating here."

  • "This is much more than a sushi place, more like Asian fusion, with a variety of other Asian dishes. We eat here frequently and the food is constently very good and the service is terrific."

  • "Good food, great service. I highly recommend the coconut curry soup! When I made the reservation I had special comments and they followed them perfectly."

  • "So-so mango salmon roll. Tempura shrimp was heavy and doughy."

  • "Love the food. I love that they had pink ginger. Reminds so much of sushi places in my home state California. Husband loved it."

  • "The food was great. Service was excellent too. Has a bit of a strip mall sushi joint feel, but as the experience starts, it's easy to get over that. Would highly recommend, for a reasonably priced sushi dinner."

  • "I was pleasantly surprised by the menu and the quality of the food. I say surprised because I know many Sushi restaurants look and feel all the same. I thought they did a nice job with a creative menu and the overall presentation of the food. I had sushi and my guest had Pad Thai and said it was very good and seemed to be made from fresh ingredients. I would go back. A very nice addition to downtown Wayzata."

  • "The sushi is very fresh, delicious and beautiful presentations! The service is very genuine and attentive. My only complaint is every time I've gone in the winter it is very cold every time the door opens. But overall I love it!"

  • "We arrived at about 6:55 and indicated we had a reservation for 7:00 p.m. The hostess explained that because of a computer glitch they were overbooked and no tables were available. We waited about 15 minutes before being seated right by the drafty door. I thought the Chef Specialty Sushi rolls were overpriced and a 22 ounce Sapporo was $10.00. Spent $66.00 and left hungry. Should have gone to the grocery store!"

  • "The food was superb, the service prompt and unobtrusive. It was a pleasure not to have a waiter or waitress coming to the table every few minutes asking how it was or if we wanted anything. So many places are annoying when you are intruded upon constantly...particularly in places when the might not be that many people there and the wait person isn't aware how often they come bak to the table. Love the lunch specials here and will return soon. ."

  • "Thank you to the staff at Sakana's for such a memorable evening of dining and celebrating our son's 18th birthday. It was perfection. Friendly and welcoming staff, modern and beautiful restaurant with a view of beautiful Lake Minnetonka. The food was amazing - from appetizers to dessert. We especially enjoyed the Crunch Roll and Spicy Girl and the Calamari!!"

  • "We eat at Sakana often since it is close to our home. The food really is exceptional and "Nobu-like" quality. This time we took our 3 year old grandaughter and that went well too. This is an intimate-size restaurant so good idea to make a reservation."

  • "My wife and I took our kids to Sakana for my sons 9th birthday dinner. Our kids always love the Japanese sodas and the chopstick cheaters that they give the kids. Both my son and my 6 year old daughter attacked the spring rolls and edamame as usual, but the big surprise was my sons interest in the Spicy Tuna Roll and the super secret Volcano Roll. All of our appetizers and entrees were flavored to perfection and the service was perfect. Sakana has been and will continue to be a perfect go to restaurant where we all get what we want and thoroughly enjoy ourselves."

  • "My wife and I went for dinner on 9/7/13. The view of the lake and location are really great! The prices were reasonable, and our server had great suggestions. The "special" roll was amazing, as was the yellowtail jalapeno appetizer. Sakana was a lot more casual than we had anticiapated, which wasn't a bad thing...just not expected. Definitely a place you can take kids. The "bar" sat 5 people, but there is not a bartender...the servers cover the bar and their tables. I reccommend Sakana to anyone looking to get a couple appetizers and drinks while enjoying a great view of the lake...dinner - questionable because the sashimi was at least half the size of what you would get somewhere else. There are fun bars to walk to when you're finished."
