This is the best sushi I have found in any location!!! You cannot go wrong.
Great food! Great service! I will be going back soon!!!
My husband and I visit Durango quite a bit and we always look forward to have an fabulous meal at you establishment. I live the fact that we can make a reservation on line and actually get a table that I want. The staff is always wonderful. This is our favorite place to eat. Food is outstanding. Thank you very much. Keep up the good customer service. It’s the best.
We were concerned that the vibe could be different with some steps in place to limit physical distancing, but it made for a fun romantic time!
Great meal as always! Wonderful service and tasty food.
We were told we had a brand new server, and our server was very humble and polite. However, the restaurant simply would not bring out what my child ordered. She got, off the children’s menu, fried rice with chicken, plain. They brought out a fried rice loaded up with all sorts of stuff (red peppers included) that no child under 15 would eat.. Our server didn’t know what was supposed to be children’s fried rice with chicken, plain. He ended up saying 15 minutes later he would bring out white rice and teriyaki chicken. That came out 20 minutes later, long after we had been done with our dinner (and it wasn’t ultimately what our daughter wanted or ordered). Rest of the food was ok, but the disaster of how our child’s meal was handled ruined our meal.
Great! Book and enjoy!
Fantastic food! From the "Hand Grenade" appetizer, the Caterpillar Roll and all the other rolls were exquisite. And probably the most tender Ika I've ever had. Truly a wonderful experience.
The food creations are outstanding and prepared with high quality ingredients. The staff is always very polite and helpful. Thank you for being such an asset to our community!
So wonderful to be back at our favorite restaurant in Durango after the past few months of Covid closures- like everything else East By does, their exceptional handling of social distancing for their guests blew us away.
As usual the food was amazing. The service is superior to most places in Durango as well
Our favorite Sushi spot in Durango. Always delicious and great service.
Excellent dinner and staff! We went for a birthday celebration and left happy.
The food is always very consistent and great.
Food quality seems to have deteriorated over the past year. Makes me sad.
Friendly and attentive staff, the absolute BEST sushi!
Your old menu last year was much better! Have more simple Asian food on the menu!
Bring back the cotton candy!
This is my favorite sushi place in Durango Colorado. As a local I eat here on special occasions and as much as I can! Love love love the Crunchy asparagus and the Philly roll!
The food was amazing as always but the drinks from the bar are severely lacking. I order 2 drinks, 1 double tall Jack and Coke $17 and a Manhattan $15. The first drink tasted like all Coke, the second one was in a tiny glass full of ice, I watched the bartender make it, she had no idea how to make a Manhattan. She poured a shot of Bourbon followed by a shot of water or club soda and then way to much bitters. It was undrinkable. I took one sip and left the rest. If they are going to be an upscale restaurant then they need some serious training for their bartenders. For the prices they charge for drinks they should be amazing.
Food was excellent, however as soon as we sat down the waitress proceeded to tell us that we needed to keep our dining experience to 1 hour. We felt extremely rushed which kind of ruined the experience for us. This was supposed to be a special date and having the staff do this to us was frankly rude and uncalled for, especially considering the cost of the dining experience. The waitstaff didn’t even offer us a dessert menu after dinner but tried to immediately bring us our check. Very distasteful for such a nice restaurant. I’m not sure if we’ll want to go back.
Don't get sashimi! fish tasted bland and gave me a stomach ache :/
East by southwest is a great date night or night out with friends. There was a louder table near us when we first arrived. But it was a birthday and they were obviously having a good time. Great service and great atmosphere!
This establishment is soooo Flippin Yummy, I was utterly gagged! My two friends n I enjoyed spilling Tea and the latest drama from work while stuffing our mouths with delisous cuisine. If there was a discriminatory vibe, we certainly didn't feel it, although there was a lack of diversity if you catch my drift, but it was just my observation during this visit. I recommend looking at the menu before coming because the options are endless, but be open to new things n just try, you'd be surprised. I spent 60$ during this visit, my bill was 42$ but our waitress was polite, attentive, and kept our drinks flowing that I request she keep the change. Unfortunately idk if they still give complementary cotton candy at the end of the meal anymore. I was looking forward to it but it somehow slipped my mind once the bill was paid for and already out the door. I plan to continue supporting this fine establishment for the most part of my trips to Durango. Oh and when we went, it was colder than sh*t outside, they offer a quaint variety of herbal Tea options that'll warm you up instantly and tastes sublime, plus you'll have a cute Tea Pot that'll warm your hands right up over the course of the meal, like your own personal stove. Have fun ^-^
Best sushi in Durango. Fresh. .............and the desserts are to die for.
Best place for Sushi and Fusion in Durango! Never a less-than-perfect experience.
It was our special date night. The food was amazing! Wish the server was a little more attentive.
Fresh sushi and more - nice design and ambiance. We love this place.
Great martinis and rolls. Always a favorite!
We had the best dinner on NYE. We had a reservation and were seated right away. The server was great, and food came out of a very busy kitchen at a perfect pace. All the apps and sushi were delicious.
Our overall experience was excellent. The food and drinks were delicious. The atmosphere was great. I highly recommend it.
Very good food, we had a great time. Food is on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for. Enjoyed our evening.
The food the very good but the service was terrible. We were in town for the Polar Express and made dinner reservations at 5:00 thinking we had plenty of time to eat before the train ride at 6:50 unfortunately we had to inhale are food and a few people in our party did not get to eat because our food didn’t come out until 6:15.
Wonderful way to celebrate our daughter's 18th bday!
We've been to East by Southwest many times and the food is always great. Service can be a little slow sometimes because they're always so busy.
Went for a birthday. They were friendly and prudent. Love this place.
Excellent food and prompt service. One of our favorite places in Durango.
It’s always one of the high points of our visits to Durango! We order different things every time because everything we have tried has been a delight. But we always end with Banana Fritters! Thank you for another memorable meal.
Food incredible and beautiful as always. Still better than any sushi place we ate at in New Orleans or Hawaii. It was a bit loud this time, but it was also homecoming night and teenagers were crowding in without reservations and wanting a million separate tickets. Our poor waiter was gracious and humorous regardless. The food is VERY expensive relative to other places in town but also worth it. I only come once a year, if it was more affordable I would come here at least 2 times a month.
If you are contemplating a second amazing mojito the answer is no. Unless you want to lose your expensive sushi in about 30 minutes. Just sayin.
