For over 25 years we have had the honor of spreading some of the most traditional Japanese dishes from "izakaya" style bites to a full on sushi bar, the experience at Hana is a bit out of the ordinary but we assure you that the flavor of the food hits home for anyone who has been exposed to real Japanese food culture.

While offering the most extensive sake list & the origin of sake tasting rooms in California, Danny Pitassy - Beverage Director/Sake Sommelier - will present each different sake with it's own unique and distinct flavor notes in a fashion that even as a beginner, you would be able to come up with your own tasting notes the next time around. Most importantly, behind the sushi bar will be chefs that perfected their craft in Tokyo to meticulously translate the Kantō flavors of Chef Owner Ken Tominaga here in Northern California.

This was the very first time I was seriously disappointed in Hana. There was a large party that came in after us and got served before us although we had the same waiter. We had a long wait to even order while he seated and attended the large group....someone should have taken us over.
When my sushi arrived, it was lack luster in presentation, the crab seemed canned and flavorless, the nori was soggy and the tobiko barely present. I have had better there before and MUCH better at O'Sushi in Petaluma. My quest had to wait even longer than I did and I was embarrassed to eat in front of her. Not up to their usual standards.
The waiter was very apologetic and reduced the bill....or I would not be going back.

The ramen was excellent. Being from abundant sushi friendly areas, we were underwhelmed.
Perhaps it is more highly rated in it's area, but is average for San Francisco and Peninsula Japanese restaurants.

Once again, Danny and Alberto provided flawless, exemplary, top notch service. That is the dynamic duo dream team. We also always loved Christine and Amy as our servers.


Marina the hostess was the best but we haven’t seen her lately. Carlos at the bar and Chris are always professional and friendly; which is much appreciated.


These are perfect role models for others.

This is one of our favorite restaurants but we had very poor service for my daughters birthday dinner. Food took over an hour to be served and all we got was "I'm sorry". We had to ask why it was taking so long and then our waiter admitted there was a new chef in the kitchen and they were short staffed.

At the very least I would have expected a comp meal or discount of some sort.

Unfortunately, I cannot give our experience a very good rating.

Management should offer some sort of comp when they make customers wait over an hour for food. This place is expensive and I expect better service, even when things go wrong.

Went here on a recommendation and it did not disappoint. We ate at the bar and if you want sushi, it is the place to sit! We had the sushi and sashimi omakase with a caraffe of sake and it was phenomenal! Best sushi I have ever had with unique ingredients and seafood, and everyone was very kind. MUST GO!!

This is a restaurant for Japanese foodies and for people who like sake as the list is very deep. The sashimi was extremely fresh and just melted in your mouth. It caters to those people who really love Japanese food and want to expand their boundaries. The bluefin tuna collar was incredible and very few restaurants serve the collar. It was cooked to perfection!

the hamachi kama was extraordinary - would order it every time! But the shumai was barely hot, should be close to mouth burning, although the flavor was good. The sake selections is very fun and the sake sommelier was very knowledgeable and helpful. Service was good but when I mentioned the luke warm shumai the server just nodded and smiled and made no effort to address the issue.

The food was simply delicious. The server was disconnected and disinterested. The bus staff were good. We will be back for the lovely flavors. Simple spinach and sesame was just perfect as was the miso soup and the teriyaki salmon plate.

A hidden gem. Outstanding menu including an exceptional range of dishes and sake, presented and served beautifully. The tasting bar area is very modern, and the dining spaces are cozy with calm decor. It is equally possible to have a relaxing, low key meal as an amazing celebratory feast.

Hana is a wonderful Japanese food restaurant. It is of the highest quality in our local area and matches up to the SF dining scene. The decor of the property is very well done. Then there is great food served with style. My wife enjoyed Edo Chirasi which included sweet rice with breaded seaweed, crab, clam, octopus, tuna, salmon, shark and steak. Very enjoyable dish. I had a steak which was very tender and accompanied by a delicious dipping sauce. It is a pleasure to recommend this restaurant.

This restaurant is an amazing find. We drove from Marin on the recommendation of a good friend who happens to be a professional chef. We ordered a flight of Sake which was delicious.
The miso soup, rolls and sushi was a perfect 10. The decor was understated with an elegant touch. Looking forward to going back for a relaxing dinner.

We are fortunate to have some great japanese/sushi restaurants in the North Bay. Hana has been at the top of my list for probably 15 years now. Consistently wonderful. They added a lovely sake bar a few years ago and their sake offerings are amazing. Can get tasting flights to see what you like best. Offer very unique fresh fish for sushi/nigiri/sashimi that you typically can't find anywhere else. I have seen families with kids there on some occasions so I am assuming they offer items on their menus that kids would like. It is a japanese restaurant so there are plenty of "non-sushi" choices on their menu. Great for lunch or dinner. Would need to check their menu to see about Vegan/Paleo/gluten free offerings, but I suspect they would accomodate. Parking is a little more tricky now that Bear Republic is in the same center so just be prepared for that, parking lot fills up in the evenings. Definitely make reservations. When I was there last I had reservations, it was a weeknight, I arrived early waiting for my guest, lots of people were walking in looking for a table and they were turned away because they could not accomodate walk-ins given the reservations they had. Only openings were at sushi bar.

Got there with reservation made hours in advance for an 8:30 seating and it was overbooked and had to sit at the bar. Its sushi so its nice at the bar but i wanted a table hence the reservation. Otherwise its a nice place with very good sushi.

They have the best fish. And its location means that the best fish, while still pricy, breaks the bank a bit less than it would in a large city.

My rule for sushi to only order rolls in places where I don't trust the freshness and quality of the fish. In a place like this, order osusume nigiri and sashimi. They have some delicious beef dishes, too, like the garlic beef tongue and the Waygu Beef nigiri.

They also have a terrific selection of delicious sakes, including some adventurous flights.

I had heard a lot about the quality of the raw fish and the interesting sake list. First off we sat at the sushi bar so interaction with the sushi chef was possible. We ordered the ten piece omakase (chef's choice) sushi, The fish was expertly prepared and the sushi rice just the right temperature. As for the sake, the sommelier helped us choose by providing a couple of sample tastes based on our discussion. Overall this is not an inexpensive restaurant but the quality of the fish and expert presentation balances that out. After all if I am looking for boring, bland sushi, that can be found in any grocery store around town.

Very slow and inattentive service. A few dishes that we ordered were mixed up or forgotten and almost 30 minutes went by before our order was taken...felt forgotten or an after thought for most of our meal. Despite the above, the food was pretty good.

We have dined at Hana several times now, and we are very impressed with the quality and presentation of the food...
If you truly like fresh raw fish, this is the best we've found in the area ~ the rolls are great as well, but... rolls are not sushi, really !
They also have two special things they do ~ a chef's tasting,
and kaiseki, which is a form of preparing food whose goal is to make the ingredients taste more their nature, as opposed to covering them up...
Awesome great place !
