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.

A generally nice experience of good food, service and a very nice staff. Little pricy for what it was.

Lack of atmosphere, just dated … the space has seem better days.

Hana is the best Sushi in the North Bay. Definitely worth the money for such high quality food. They have also really made the space COVID safe with private dining spaces both indoors and outdoors. We will definitely return for more amazing culinary adventures.

Such a delicious meal, a beautiful selection of raw and cooked items, tiny salty fried fish and delicate chawan mushi custard, excellent sashimi and cured saba. A romantic meal to share. Some people may not like raw seafood but ANYone would love the crisp fried & grilled dishes and the vegetables. Everyone should go. Heavenly.

Hana has become our go-to special occasion restaurant. You can choose to either have a more normal (but still excellent) sushi meal here, or go for the Omakase and have something truly special. A fantastic restaurant.

It was delicious and so great to be back at Hana!! Billy our waiter is amazing, he greeted me by first name. I was shocked!! The crab cakes were delectable, the poke was the best I’ve had and Ken...your “Ken’s roll” was off the charts. The lemon sorbet was a great finish to our meal. Thank you! See you very soon!!!

Love supporting local mom n pop owned restaurants, especially after the year we've all had.

Food was exceptional if a little pricey, great sake.
Unfortunately it was obvious that even with limited seating, staff was stretched pretty thin.

This is the best sushi in Sonoma County, hands down. The sashimi is as fresh as can be, the rolls are creative and delicious. Small plate items are exquisite. Even the greens in Ken's Salad stand out as fresh, tasty, as if they had just been picked. Worth the price for the experience of such superb Japanese food. Not to mention our favorite sake sommelier, Danny, who always finds just the right bottle for us and always remembers what we have had in the past, even after not dining at Hana throughout Covid. Treat yourself!

My beloved and I had the most wonderful and romantic dinner on Hana’s outdoor patio. Danny and Ken-san were charming and attentive as always and the food was otherworldly delicious. We especially liked the exquisite striped jack nigiri, the maitake mushroom tempura, and the happy spoon. We will be back as soon as we are able as this is our favorite restaurant in the Bay Area and in Sonoma County.

We just celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary at Hana and it was a AMAZING AND WONDERFUL experience.

Danny our server is so knowledgeable and passionate about what he does and made it very special for us. We know a bit about Japanese cuisine, but Danny elevated our awareness with fabulous recommendation both for food and a special Sake as well.

We had such a great experience, I am about to write Chef Owner Ken Tominaga a letter of gratitude.

Thank you Danny and Ken for a wonderful anniversary! Nolan & Rosalie

Always an amazing dining experience because the quality and freshness of their fish can not be beat. Absolutely love their staff as well, they always remember my husband and I (we’ve moved away years ago) and that makes the meal even better.

This is a spot that I’ll fly out of state to visit because it is so good.

The Crispy Spicy rolls have shrunk considerably ( in terms of the size of the rolls) compared to before the shut down. They were so tiny~ previously large, scrumptious rolls and lined up on a long plate. Now, on a square plate~ and so small. Also, the batter in the tempura is different too! Instead of super light and crispy it is now heavier and more golden in color. While we still love Hana, it is not the same food quality as when they were still open of lunch etc. ie) pre Covid.

The fish is so fresh. The hamachi, toro and uni are like no other I’ve had anywhere. I don’t want to waste my time on rolls here. I come for the simplicity and purity of the fish because it is so amazing. Great sake selection too..
