The worst experience despite having eaten there more than 20 times. The service was abysmal, our waitress nice but incompetent. I’m not sure we would go back.

Great food, great service, unique atmosphere. Large sushi menu, saki. Private booths. Lots of fun. A neighborhood institution.

Another great dinner and experience at Fugakuu. The quality of the sushi is second to none. The sushi rolls are stuffed with contents and no fillers. Other places put fillers into the roll to reduce the amount of sushi. Not at Fugakyu.

Small table for 6 people and overpriced for that amount of people

Visiting from out of town. Nice overall experience but have experienced much better elsewhere. Waitress was rather unpleasant, food mediocre, costs were high. Nice place though and love the individual rooms.

You can make reservations.

There are two floors in the restaurant.

If you are a table of 2, you share a small room thing with another table of 2.

They have good sushi.

They have Sapporo.

Service might be slow if very busy.

It was a beautiful place and the service was impeccable. The food was really good too. The only thing was if you were seated in the upper floors, you had to go up a lot of flights of stairs. But upstairs is a little quieter then downstairs, so it was worth the climb.

Quality and selection not as good as Oishii for same dish, and even more expensive. One of us in the party had stomach problems later in the evening.

Food was excellent, per usual, and our server was amazing! We had a party of 7 that turned into 9 in one of the private rooms and she was completely accommodating! Never missed a beat. Thank you so much!

Fugakyu, along with Symphony Sushi, is one of my favorite sushi places. Great food, fresh and nicely prepared. Consistently good--I think I have been there 25 times and it has always been terrific.

We had a very nice meal, and the third floor dining area was comfortable with a low noise level. Our server was attentive and friendly. We all were impressed by the quality of the food. Overall it was a very enjoyable outing, except for the price, which was a bit of a shock. I should have done the math as we ordered, but since only one of the four of us had wine, I didn't. To be fair, we had dessert, so that added to it, and it wasn't crazy expensive, just more than I had expected. Next time we'll skip dessert.
