We really enjoyed our meals and time we had while there to catch up with some friends and family and Celebrate a birthday in the bunch of 9! Desert never fails us either! Chocolate mouse and Muchi balls are the best in town!
East by Southwest NEVER DISAPPOINTS!!! Service, food, presentation and atmosphere are top notch!!!
Our server was excellent! Said it was his first day. We were very well taken care of
Front desk was a bit disorganized. But the waiter, who was otherwise nice, charged us for a pot of tea and never delivered it. Food was dropped off at the table without any thought to things like us having told the waiter we were going to share food, so no additional plate accompanied until we asked for such.
We had to ask for wasabi and ginger that was supposed to accompany the chirashi, and then we had to wait 15 minutes for it be delivered before we could eat it. We've eaten at several Japanese restaurants where sashimi and chirashi were served for less than 1/2 of the price at East by Southwest, and we've never been served such a skimpy plate of the item.
When in Durango again will not eat at East by Southwest, and neither will the friends we treated to dinner.
Terrible service. Food was slow getting out plus overpriced. Before our food was brought to the table we were told it was last call for food and desserts. Poor management.
The food was excellent and the service was as well! Not only was EBSW's sushi delicious, it was ART! Mama Silvia's Caprese salad was the absolute best I have ever had! Heirloom tomatoes on a bed of Pesto with the freshest, creamiest Burrata, topped with a perfect Balsamic dressing! Delectable and a delightful pleasure to eat such perfectly prepared and served food!
Our waitress Olivia was awesome but she couldn’t help the slowness of the food coming out and the untimely ness. My tempura meal( not appetizer) came out at least 10 minutes before the rest of the tables food ( which was sushi). That part was annoying. Other than that , the food etc was great.
Seriously great sushi in Durango, believe it or not. We’ve been here several times and it’s been consistently excellent each time.
Absolutely fantastic! If you have never tried sushi, this is the place.
If you love sushi, this is the place.
The experience was wonderful as always! It was the perfet way to clelbrate my daughters 22 birhtday!
The food was fantastic. Our waitress was very fun and kind. Service was fast. We will definitely come again.
Great time as usual, love that I was able to make a reservation the morning of our event. Thank you for the accommodation and fine service. We will return as always!
Consistently excellent service and authentic cuisine!
Food was great but the kitchen was totally out of control. It took us three hours to receive our full order. The waitress was awesome and kept apologizing for it taking so long. Finally three hours in the last piece of our order arrived. All delicious but crazy slow service. They took off our first round of drinks for four off our tab as an apology. We will go back but after some time for them to get organized.
I live in Farmington NM,
And I'll drive to eat there every chance I get.
It's my favorite restaurant .
I tell my friends that they need to try it.
And you get a lot of food, and they have awesome drinks!
Great experience overall for our twin daughters' 11th birthday celebration! Delicious food, fast service, and wonderful ambience.
Our favorite sushi ever. Always consistent high quality food. You must try the firecrackers!!
Service was very slow but that is not the norm in my experience.
Sushi is great and a must if you try this place. Order a Mojito or two if you can - you won’t be disappointed!
Date night with Sushi. Pot Stickers were very good and the Sushi rolls were good. Restaurant was crowded and very busy. Prices were reasonable.
The service was very poor. And they can’t blame it on covid because they had plenty of staff. Our server forgot to put in my drink order and disappear for quite awhile during our meal. It took an hour to get our sushi and we had little kids with us. That’s just unacceptable. But when it was time to give us the check, he was Johnny on the spot.
Great food, great service. They were even nice enough to take us a little early when we showed up.
Food was amazing. Selection was excellent. Cocktails were disappointing and our sever was capable but forgot to put in our appetizer order. He only realized this when we asked after it. Then instead of asking if we still wanted them/apologizing for the mistake/offering compensation he just drops off one of our four entrees. The other entrees did not come out. Instead our apps were finally delivered, eaten, and plates cleared then the other three entrees were delivered. The saving grace of the evening was that the food was very good. Oh and while we dined there were two birthday celebrations, I got excited because I had included on my reservation that we were celebrating a birthday as well. Guess what…no birthday gong for my son.
I suggest ordering their amazing food TO GO!
Good food, but service was a little slow. This is not surprising, given the acute shortage of labor in this area.
Food and service made for a very nice catch-up dinner with a friend
One meal came out 15 minutes before the others😒 Waiter was rude. Food was very good.
We enjoy eating here. Still had a bit of a wait due to the crowds. That also slowed down the food service. But as always the food was good. We will get back when we get a chance
Awedom food and service. I have been to this restaurant many times and I am never disappointed.
Been eating here since 2006 and have never been disappointed!
Fresh delicious sushi and friendly service in a clean, well-decorated setting.
Poor communication by the hostesses. While moving through the restaurant, the other staff members were not friendly.
Excellent happy hour, both food and drinks
I noticed the booth we sat at and area around us was kind of worn and didn’t feel clean either. Good service. Food ok. Wouldn’t come back.
Amazing food, presentation, service in an expedient fashion. Highly recommend East by Southwest and will most definitely return on our next trip to Durango.
Consistently great food and service.
Nice option for sushi in Durango. Food was really good but a little on the pricier side compared to Scottsdale, AZ, which was really surprising. We were a little disappointed that they're using the sushi bar as their takeout staging as it's always the best seat in the house to watch the chefs. We will definitely be back!
Dinner was great. There was a broken water feature by us that was quite noisy. We asked if they could turn it off. One girl was snippy and said no, then our waiter went behind her and turned it off. The whole section seated by us said “yay”. Funny how easy it was to handle! The food was delicious. The atmosphere is lively. Great experience.
Happy hour menu has many excellent choices in both drinks and food. The shrimp and vegetable tempura was in a light batter and very tasty. Gyoza always excellent here. Husband got rolls and I got chicken teriyaki with vanilla black rice. Definitely one of our go to restaurants.
Excellent sushi rolls, very good service, respected Open Table reservation.
