Diner Reviews
  • "Our kids always request a birthday dinner at one of the hibachi tables and we're never disappointed with the "show!" The chefs are entertaining and funny and the food is very good. When I made our most recent reservation through Open Table I noted that we were celebrating a birthday and had no idea they would surprise us with a special dessert. Very thoughtful!"

  • "My family often dines at Sakura for sushi or hibachi. They have a great selection of specialty sushi rolls that look as good as they taste. They also offer many options other than sushi. You can get a hibachi meal even if not at a hibachi table. We went on a Sunday afternoon and was disappointed they were not offering the lunch menu (they have the dinner menu all day on Sundays). Other than that it is one of our favorite restaurants. "

  • "Went to Sakura for a friends birthday with a small party of 6. We sat at the hibachi bar but they also have a dining room, sushi bar, and regular bar so there are plenty of options for all types of groups. The hibachi was great, sushi was incredible and the whole environment was very lively with a touch of sophistication. I would go here again and recommend to anyone for a change of pace from your typical dinner out."

  • "This is our favorite couples night place to eat. Classier than most. Service always good and friendly. Had considered having our daughter's wedding reception here but no private dining room. The only complaint is often few parking spaces available. On this night a huge Whole Foods delivery trailer was blocking off 4-6 prime parking spots right in front of the restaurant. Boo on Whole foods."

  • "The sushi was the best we have had in quite a while. Very fresh and many choices. My 7 year old loves sushi as long as its made very small for him, they accommodated this and where very kind to him, letting him try the green tea ice cream before he ordered it."

  • "Various sushi rolls were good but not great. There was a limited variety compared to many sushi restaurants in the area. The fish was fresh but the overall presentations were not very creative again in comparison."

  • "This restaurant is a real Jewel. The surroundings are very elegant ( for those who think this is important). The service and food was really great and the prices were very reasonable. The menu selection is also varied. (Something for everyone). What went through my mind the whole time was how lucky we were to find such a great restaurant on Christmas Day when so many other restaurants are closed. We had reservations but you could have also just walked in. Because there was nothing else open, there was plenty of convenient parking also. I am a little biased because I like Asian food, but I think anyone would like the food here. We were very satisfied. What a Great Place!!!"

  • "We ordered the tempura shrimp appetizer. My son doesn't usually like shrimp and he devoured it. Excellent. I had the Chilean sea bass. It was wonderful. I savored every bite. The presentation was very nice too. The wait staff was very efficient and catered to our needs. I would certainly recommend it."

  • "I have eaten at Sakura quite a few times and each time I am amazed. The food is right on the money and so is the price. I know that it is the holiday season and it gets quite crowded at restaurants, but it is worth the time and effort, and that is why I use Open table."

  • "I made reservations for 8p.m. and was not seated til 8:35p.m. After being seated we waited another hour for our cook. When we acquired about our cook and ridicilous wait time we were told it was a busy Night. The food was good once we ate. Then my bday desert was not what we ordered and the waitress Couldn't find what was ordered."

  • "While the food was good, we were surprised that the restaurant would not serve "Happy Hour" drinks in the main dining room. I had to go to the bar to get our drinks. Seems to be a silly policy."

  • "There's nothing different about the hibachi area of this restaurant. The food is the same, the "chefs" perform the same routine as every other hibachi restaurant I have been to. That's not to say the food isn't good, it is, but it's not any different. The only real annoyance was the television sets scattered all around the hibachi section. We are there to enjoy the show and it is rude and disrespectful to those guys who are trying to entertain us to have to compete with televisions. I go to a restaurant to get away from media and enjoy time with my friends and family. Not watch TV. I have had lunch in the dining room and enjoyed the food there very much."

  • "The server and food were good. My sushi for one was good. My husband had chicken hibachi. We had a vegetable tempura for appetizer. My husband had a zombie and ice tea for me. Alex was attentive and knew when to replace another ice tea. Thank you."

  • "Sakura's interior is well appointed, with comfortable seating and tasteful decorations that make one comfortable as soon as you enter. Although I'm not experienced with sushi, I felt at ease because our waiter was so eager to pleae. My daughter and I had miso soup which was excellent. We also shared a Boston roll, a Tuna roll and a Spicy Santa roll - all of which were beautifully presented and tasty. My husband was a bit disappointed in his chicken tempura platter, but acknowledged that he should have ordered a less fattening dish. Unlike some other restaurants in town which are upbeat and noisy, we were able to feel relaxed and to chat quietly. Overall, it was a great meal, and I'll definitely go back again to try some of the raw entrees."

  • "I dine here often when in the area for business. This visit the service was off. The delay in taking my beverage order was not typical. Usually the staff is right on top of things. Based on the number of filled tables, I could not figure out what was taking my server so long. My salad and soup included with the hibachi meal was delivered and I had to call the server back for silverware and she only brought a fork. I didn't even bother to call her back for the knife. The food was good as usual but the service was not up to par and what I experienced on previous visits. I might add that I dined solo at one of the tables instead of in the hibachi room."

  • "I had yet another terrific experience at Sakura. I am always greeted with a smile. That friendly service continues throughout my dining. Even the people sitting next to us were friendly. They were smiling and joking as we shared comments on the food and environment. This part doesn't always happen but it is not surprising. Sakura is always consistent in the delivery of friendly, fun service of fabulous food."

  • "Once again I find myself boasting about Sakura, this was my fourth visit in the last week, and I am still amazed at the service and the food. There is new sushi chef, and his new ideas and style is quite unique. I give him a ten."
