    We had a great experience, it was nice and quite. The food was good for the money, quantity and location. We sat on the patio/terraza and it was incredible romantic with great view. I will say they need to upgrade the patio furniture to make it even more enjoyable.

    Food is decent, but there are quite a few significantly better sushi restaurants in Marin. Pricing is pretty reasonable, but food and service does leave a little to be desired. That being said, Ginza has basically a perfect location, right on the water. It offers a lovely ambiance, is set among other quaint restaurants in a very quiet, pretty part of Tiburon, and parking is extremely convenient (so convenient that the $4 for an hour and a half seemed cheap). Recommended for a date if your date is not a foodie.

    Ginza sushi is a neighborhood gem tucked in downtown Tiburon. The sushi is always delicious and fresh. There are lots of options for kids too like chicken teriyaki, udon bowls, and small-cut avocado rolls (request this if you have little kids). The service is fantastic! Connie is so attentive and warm. Eddie is always jovial and welcoming. We dine here once a week.

    My fiancé and I love sushi, we love trying all the specialty rolls, and this place had some very unique combinations that created the perfect bite to hit all of your taste buds at once. We made a reservation on New Year's Eve in the morning for 7:30 that night and they had a window table reserved for us. The view of the city is breath taking and the food is to die for. We will definitely be going back!

    Ginza Sushi is a comfortable and friendly restaurant. It's right on the water in Tiburon and has a few outside tablets. They're worth snagging on a pretty day. It's one of our favorite places because the people there are so warm and welcoming. We've always had a good time.

    Food is very good - pleasing to eye and mouth. Very nice wines as well. Service attentive without being bothersome. Some very interesting sushi. Only drawback to Ginza is the pricing, which is over the top for what it is. It feels a bit 'we can ask these prices because tourists will pay them when visiting Tiburon' pricing. As locals, we get it. But it keeps Ginza from being our go-to-always place for sushi.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    Whereas the service was exceptional, and the staff very friendly, the food was only average. In all likelihood, had I stayed with traditional sushi, I would have been more satisfied. I decided to try the grilled snapper, which was both meager in portion, but more notably, the sweetness of the sauce almost destroyed the flavor. With all the good sushi restaurants, for me there was little that would motivate me to return.

    We'd never noticed this place before, even having been to many other restaurants on this street. Found it on OT when looking for Japanese in Marin. Sushi and sashimi were good to excellent. Shime saba was flavorful and plentiful, but the uni was scarce and not as cold as we like. Toro and smoked sake were very good. Starters (miso, wakame and gyoza) were fine. Service was fast and gracious -- we were in and out in under an hour. Easy parking in the paid lot across the street.

I wrote it off but my kids kept asking if we should try it again; we did, on the 4th of July. WHAT A RELIEF: the food and presentation were back to the standards we once new!

We sat in the middle ofmthe restaurant and it was drafty from front door and sliding door to deck always being opened and closed. The service was ok, nothing special. But we will definitely go back because the food was very good.

    An alternative to the loud, boisterous sushi bar scene. A quiet, even restful place with excellent sushi and other dishes. The preparations do not overwhelm the delicate flavors of the very fresh fish. It is a delight to look out over the water and to the distant shore on the other side of the bay. Service is usually to notch, but tonight the service was slow and a bit inattentive. We love this place.

    Their sushi is a bit pricey but since I am a vegan that loves sushi I look for sushi restaurants that have good vegetarian sushi options and this one enough to satisfy what I am looking for (not just your besic veggie sushi but some rolls that that actually thought about when putting the roll together). Has a wonderful view of the Tiburon marina, Angel Island and San Fransisco. If they lowered their prices just a bit they might get more people in. :)

    The food was good and the portions were generous. We thought the restaurant needed some serious sprucing up in term of decor. It would have perhaps felt better had the weather been conducive to eating on their deck over the water. I did not think the food lived up to the 4+ rating it received on Open Table and that made me a bit skeptical of the over all rating system.

    The service was beyond bad. The waitress ordered the wrong food for us and costing us an extra $20 for that dish. It was lunch time and we ordered the Sashimi combo lunch. She gave us the Sashimi Combo in the menu which instead of $12.95 with soup and rice, is an a la carte costing $33.00. She not just didn't apologize, but had such a bad attitude. It really is quite a pity, as the food was great.

    Nice location but the food left much to be desired. My mother ordered beef & asparagus udon and said the meat was tough and tasteless. I had the black cod, which was tender and tasty but the bok choy that it was served with was very oily. The hamachi on the hamachi roll wasn't very fresh but the other rolls were pretty good. We ordered a side of veggie tempura and the eggplant was undercooked (still spongy). I didn't try the taro root tempura. Overall, a disappointing meal.

    My Japanese girlfriend Emiko and I love Japanese food so I suggested after our walk we go have dinner at Ginza Sushi in Tiburon. We walked in and the restaurant had tables lined up by the floor to ceiling glass window overlooking the boats and city water views. I was a little apprehensive because it was Emiko’s first time there and she knows good Japanese food but once the food came WE both loved it. Food was fresh and full of flavor. We tried two delicious salads, miso soup, and several sushi rolls and desert. The presentation was wonderful. Our server authenic Japenese was attentive to our needs. Everything was yummy to our tummy. We will certainly return.
