WE ordered an appetizer that was tuna, with avocado and wontons and it was delicious. WE also ordered 3 other rolls which were fabulous...One was spicy tuna, the other one was rock and roll and the third was an eel roll.....very nice staff.

Went here with a coworker for lunch and had a great experience. It's pretty straightforward ambiance-wise but the sushi is great. There were tons of options and the service was really speedy and receptive.

Sushi was really good for the price. A lot of variety for sushi. The service was a little slow, I had to get the waiter's attention in order to ask a question about the food.

Went to Fuji Mountain during restaurant week. They offered a great 5-course dinner for 35 dollars. I got a soup, a salad, an appetizer, a entree (sushi+sashimi combo), and a dessert. Great food, awesome service. I had to take some home because it's a lot!!! My only complain is they automatically charged us 20% tips. I mean, the service was great I probably would have given this much for tips but still would like to have a choice.

We made a reservation for July 3 at lunch for 5 people - a good sized group! Received a confirmation email and reminder. Upon arrival to the restaurant- we discovered it was closed. Ruined our plans. No communication whatsoever.

Waitress was great. Constantly filling water glasses. Had the special of toro. Which was melt in your mouth delicious. We also had the hurricane roll that was just as good. Decor. Was non descript. But it really didn't matter. We asked the waitress. Of an ice cream place and she recommended a great place a block away. Great gelato

They always have high quality fish, so get a selection of sashimi every time. Even if you have one of their entrees.

Sushi was amazing. Beyond the traditional roles, the Chef Special roles are extremely unique and tasty. Of course you get what you pay for, but this was so worth it.

Bento boxes are delicious and substantial for lunch. It's a calm place. You can have a conversation without shouting. Server accommodated our request to be out in one hour. I have dined there many times and will return and recommend it to others.

This restaurant has the best Japanese food I've tasted anywhere. The service also could not possibly be friendlier or more thoughtful. All in all, a real treasure for Philadelphia.

This is my wife's and my all-time favorite Japanese restaurant. The food just couldn't be better: the sushi rice is impeccable, done just the way it should be. I always get the sushi regular, and my wife branches out. But consistently, it's the best Japanese food you will find anywhere .

The menu is varied but the food is underwhelming and overpriced. The appetizers were not bad but Chinatown-standard. The kinoko soup was probably the only salvageable. My roll was just OK and my girlfriend complained that a piece in her "premium" sashimi was still frozen.

The restaurant looks dated and could use some dusting. The service was OK but slow given the place was almost empty.

We wanted to try it out for restaurant week but at 3pm they only offered the more expensive dinner menu (despite no notice on the website and dinner time stated at the door starting at 5pm). When I booked using Opentable we did leave a note to clarify our intention of participating in lunch for restaurant week. This was the first ever booking I have made using Opentable (I've used it more than a dozen times) that NO one called us to confirm anything or discuss the notes in the reservation. This is also the empties restaurant I have ever booked as well.

The curb appeal would not have attracted me but this was a great Open Table find. On a pretty busy Saturday night we were still seated within a few minutes (with a reservation). The food was great. Among our group we had Chilean Sea Bass, Shrimp Roll and Noodles with Shrimp. Each was excellent. Service was friendly and reasonably timely. However, I did witness two other diners having to flag down a waitress to ask for their checks. When it was our turn to ask for the check, our waitress forgot to bring it the next time she visited the table. Still, a very minor inconvenience given the superb food. I would recommend and I would visit again.

This was our first time at this restaurant. We wanted to try something new. The sushi and entrees were good. So were the cocktails. It just wasn't really anything special and the dining room was somewhat cramped.

The bar has been raised for Japanese food over the years. Unfortunately Fuji mt has not followed that trend. Limited sake options, rice was not cooked well, fish was gamey. Better go with friends and enjoy the atmosphere and karaoke. Everything else here sub par

Fuji Mountain was fine, but I definitely feel that there is better sushi in the city for less money or at least for the same cost. None of the rolls stood out to us and for $15+ for specialty rolls, I had hoped to at least really like one. Overall our meal was fine, but I would not run back.

I had a business casual lunch here with our client. They come here often for Sushi and recommended this place. I had chicken noodles and liked it. I saw on other tables also occupied with people having business attires, that was my first good impression.

Best Japanese food in Philly. It's that simple. Actually, it's the best Japanese food I've had anywhere. And the service couldn't be more efficient and kind.

The nigiri fish was dry and unpleasantly fishy. When I mentioned it to our server, her response was trite and nothing was done. So, we didn't eat anymore of our dinner. It was expensive too. Service was included even though we were only 5 (2 adults and 3 children under 10). That's the last time I will go there.
