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.

an old standby sushi restaurant. always good, never the greatest. very large restaurant with 3 floors. Had the sashimi combo and was really only so so. the seaweed spicy salad, too much mayo, not enough of the fish it said was in it.

As always it's been a great experience concerning food drinks and service. I was positively surprised that my request to get on of the more private tables with room was fulfilled

We took our two children, aged 9 and 11, to Fugakyu following an afternoon at the theater/ballet. We had come as a family once before, and we all loved it. This time was no surprise: the food was excellent and the ambiance great (we requested and obtained a private booth). Quality was superb, and quantity was more than adequate. It was 20 degrees outside, so we enjoyed the warm ambiance, and the hot food when presented. A great meal all around. We are now inviting our friends to come to Fugakyu with us, to reserve one of the upstairs tables for groups: what a blast!
