This was our first time here and it was for a girls lunch. Unfortunately, our waitress was less than pleasant and seemed to have a difficult time understanding what I wanted until I pointed to it on the printed menu. Thinking all would be okay, imagine our surprise when mine came out fine, but my friend’s order was something completely different than what she had ordered. When we politely told the waitress this was not what she had ordered, she was visibly annoyed yet said she’d speak to the manager and see if it could be changed! I have never had this as an issue in any dining establishment! The entree was replaced, and the manager eventually came over to apologize (SHE was very appropriate, polite and understood completely). The food was mediocre (Udon bowls), and the cost for lunch was on the high side. On a positive note the menu is extensive and the ambiance was wonderful.

We love Fugakyu - the food and service are great. I think we most love the ambiance of the booths with sliding doors. It's a nice touch and gives you the feel of a private dining experience, which is a treat.

Seated by bathroom, felt like the mall sushi restaurant that it was. Slow service, slow drinks, cheap-feeling wineglass. Food ok but didn’t feel like an elegant treat like sushi should.

Consistently good food.
Opt to get sushi.
The main entrees could use a little bit more spice/flavor.
However, overall good place.

Food is consistently great, everything is cooked just right, many unique flavors. Booths are very nice for tuning out background noise. Service a little choppy, but certainly friendly enough. Parking a bit of an issue, though not if you're up for a bit of a walk.

Waited close to 25 mins before a waiter noticed that we were not being helped at all. He took it upon himself to serve us. A little inexperienced (maybe new) I.e. was slow to clear table, didn’t notice that we all needed refills of our drinks....but was very nice and polite. At least he cared enough to serve us, for which we’re thankful for.

Management passed us several time, ignoring the fact that we weren’t being helped. It was not a busy night, so there was no way he missed us being ignored.

Normally we have a decent experience eating here. But tonight was just plain awful. Complete inattention, then it was long wait time. Food was mediocre at best. I had an order of spider maki (was gross) and salmon sashimi (not cold and too thickly sliced) and sparkling sake (warmer than room temp). My husband and oldest child both shared veggie tempura, beef negimaki and shrimp tempura maki rolls; my two younger children had kids’ meals of chicken teriyaki. With tip, for a family of 5 (two of which were kids’ meals), our bill was a little over $200. So not worth it. It will be a very long time, before we come back, if ever again.

We used to love this Fugakyu. We’d meet up with our friends for couples-date night and the six of us would order everything on the menu (literally so much food that there’s not enough table space). And in the past, the place was lively and bustling with great service. We’ve been here probably about 15 times. The last 4 times we came though, it has gone down a little but more each time. But tonight’s was the absolute pits.

Had my birthday dinner here. The food is amazing. Very fresh and delicious. We would definitely go back again. I would give it 5 stars across the board except for two very minor things. There was a slight mixup over the bill which was solved immediately. The other was it was freezing inside. To be fair it was extremely cold outside, but with that said they could have turned up the heat.

Two minor issues in now way would stop us from going back.

One of my favorite places. The lunch special is a great value and so good. They give you quite a bit of food if you order the sumo special which has 3 rolls, a miso soup, salad, and oranges for $14. The manager and wait staff are always very friendly, nice , and welcoming. The fish is particularly fresh and of a high quality in their sashimi lunch specials. They generally give you generous cuts as well. Great food!

Love the private rooms with the inground tables (good for inflexible Americans attempting experience Japanese dining style!) The only thing I want them to improve is the acoustics in the private room -- with the addition of some sound absorbing material on the ceiling/walls the environment would be great.

The waitstaff was extremely rude and not open to answering questions re the menu. My friend and I felt like they wanted us to leave early on a Saturday night because the restaurant was empty and they kept coming over and trying to clear dishes, etc. They even took the soy sauce off the table in an effort to move us out when we were still eating. The lighting was too bright and the food was overpriced. A terrible experience - will never return.

I've been here before and the food was good, unfortunately, that was not the case tonight. A sushi roll with crab and pineapple was "funky", the pineapple tasted like canned pineapple and it messed with the entire roll. The spicy seafood salad roll was standard, and crab rangoon were very, very, very oily. Mushroom soup was okay.

The grillee chicken ramen plate (rather, bowl), was bland. Lacked depth of flavor.

Hot sake was great, though. Service was good, we had a reservation and were seated promptly. Our waitress was straight to the point and polite.
