The Sit Down Cafe & Sushi Bar
Creative YUM!We come to Hyde Park 3 or 4 times a year for concerts or theatre and have the area a bit lacking in great food places. So we're very happy to have found the Sit Down Cafe & Sushi Bar since it seems have "something for everyone - AND sushi"! Creative menu, very fresh, generous portions (my hubby and I shared a wonderful apple & greens salad and also a sandwick and were quite satisfied). A woman was seated - on the first warmish day of our very-slow-to-come spring - outside, having a martini and enjoying an appetizer. It was such a delight to see an al fresco adventure. She was so content!! We were, too! We will absolutely return!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMSushiGreat variety of Sushi and other foods for non-sushi eaters4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMI was just mad that a 15%I was just mad that a 15% service fee was added to my bill when my entire party didn't even show up. Yes I reserved for 10 people but I never got a notification about the service fee and also my entire party didn't even show up. Unacceptable4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorite placesOne of my favorite places in Hyde Park. Staff is friendly and friendly crowd. I made a reservation (not necessary) and my table was waiting. Our server and everyone was very nice.
Although it is known for their sushi they do have other wonderful items on the menu. The jambalaya was delicious and not spicy served with warm bread. The steak sandwich served in a pita bread was wonderful. Please don't leave without having dessert. I had a slice of chocolate cake topped with macadamia nuts. Very rich and you can share it. The best part of it all is that they have Pepsi on their menu (big time kudos for that)!
Good place, good food what more could you ask for?4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWide range of choices on menuEach member of my party commented on how much they enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant and quality of the food. The dessert was particularly outstanding as we all shared two different choices. The Sit Down Cafe & Sushi Bar has a wide range of choices that are suitable for any picky eater, even an entire gluten-free menu. I will definitely be coming back and enjoying other menu items soon!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSit Down? Don't mind if I do.Sit Down Cafe & Sushi Bar had amazing martinis and great sushi. Service could be improved slightly, as we were waiting for our waitress a couple of times for requests, but overall, it had great ambiance, was quiet enough to hear each other, but very energetic.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was very fresh. LoveThe food was very fresh. Love the Gluten Free menu. The place was nice but not too fancy. I was comfortable there in my regular clothes but felt like I was getting something special. It is my new favorite Hyde Park restaurant.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMNice gemFirst timer... Enjoyed the food and the friendly neighborhood atmosphere. Sushi was pretty decent for the price and the night I came was a half off special on bottles of wine. I will come back.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGive your review a title (optional)This is an amusing, eclectic, restaurant, with food for a wide range of tastes, all good. Often, the restaurant has uni (urchin roe), a great treat for me. The wines are well chosen. At first, the combination of sushi and pizza may seem puzzling, but then when you see families where the parents eat sushi while the kids eat pizza, or groups of more and less adventurous eaters, it all makes sense.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Sit Down Cafe & SushiThe Sit Down Cafe & Sushi Bar is a good restaurant in Hyde Park. They also serve sandwiches, but I only had the sushi, and it was good. I recommend this place for lunch.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
