Japanese
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.

Overpriced for the level of service and the sub-par sushi. Do not order the tuna poke ...it is a pile of spicy tuna, would not return

We celebrated our son's 31st bday at Hana. All of us had the Omekasi. A pricey evening, but lots of fun with amazing dishes, each done beautifully. The best part of the evening was the Sommelier, Danny. He really made the evening for us. He presented a saki paring for each course, explaining why each saki went with what we were about to eat. He gave a brief explanation about each saki as well. He answered all of our questions, and explained some of the dishes we were not sure about. He truly made it a night worth remembering.

Spectacular Omakase. Skip the optional sashimi course and focus on the perfectly seasoned and presented Nigiri.

A hidden gem in Rohnert Park. We always have dinner here before a concert at the Green Music Center 12 minutes away. Try the sake flights if you know nothing about sake. Staff here are always so gracious and welcoming. There are just too many things on the menu to choose from which makes ordering a challenge.

Food was fabulous as always. The service for the sushi was very slow-45 minutes to get two rolls. This was the second time. It has to do with the large to go orders at 11:30. Expect very slow service at early lunch for sushi orders.

Hana is an outstanding sushi/Japanese restaurant. The quantify of the ingredients and the preparation of them is superior to other sushi restaurants I've experienced in Nor Cal. Their prices are very high, but I believe the prices matches the quality and freshness of the fish.

While many “Japanese” restaurants are just raw fish based, Hana has a great select of cooked authentic Japanese dishes. If you think Japanese cuisine is just raw fish (which by the way is excellent at Hana) go to Hana and get a whole range of Japanese food. In addition to good food they have a large selection of sake and spot on service

We had black cod which was on the menu but also had the grilled fresh water eel which was not. Both were excellent. To start with we had kinpira (lotus root) which was also not on the menu but available when asked. The service was very attentive and the seasonal sake was delicious. Highly recommend this to anyone who want authentic Japanese food — not just sushi.

Hostess and lady bussing tables outstanding, smiles and genuine happy to be there.
The chopsticks and napkin on the table had more personality than my server, Alberto. Never a smile, nothing genuine, just robot functions to get the paycheck. Flat affect. Nothing about him displayed he should be in the business of hospitality. He did not deserve any of the tip, should all go to the busser.
Food outstanding, excellent quality.
Location has plenty of parking, ambience inside is traditional.
Almost a hidden gem. Excellent Japanese restaurant experience.

Sushi was very good, sukiyaki good. The problem was that my wife’s sushi was served 10 or 15 minutes after my sukiyaki, and then only after we asked a waiter to find our waiter and ask when her dinner was coming. Toward the end of the meal bus boys asked —twice—if they could clear our plates before we were finished. We felt rushed. Odd, because it was still early and no one was waiting for a table. Overall, a disappointing experience.

My wife and I have gone to Hana's (or at least to the Japanese Restaurant at their location) several times over the years, and we have always enjoyed the food and the service there. We haven't been there often lately.

We wanted to see our grandson and his family. They live in Rohnert Park, and we wanted to get together at a nice restaurant. We remembered Hana, and made reservations there.

We were all very pleased with our dining experience.

Dined there twice while I was attending a meeting at the hotel next door. First night I specifically went for the black cod. To my surprise on a Thursday night they didn’t have it. I found something else. Service was slow and the server didn’t appreciate my annoyance of not having the cod. Visited with a colleague the next day for lunch. They did accommodate us without a reservation. My chicken teriyaki was fishy tasting and medium rare. My colleague had the salmon and she said it was also fishy tasting. I know this place has great reviews and probably is the best restaurant in rhonert park. But, Ehe.

The service was terrible. After we were seated, no server came by, so eventually we had to go to the front to ask for a server. We were a party of four. Two received dinners at the same time, the third dinner came about 10 minutes later but was wrong, and the last one came after another 10 minutes. No apologies or explanations from the server. The menu was great and the food was good, but dishes that should have been hot were only lukewarm. We were so disappointed!
