About Hana Japanese Restaurant

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.

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.

Always my first choice for sushi & japanese cuisine in Sonoma County. Unique menu items you won't find at other places. Saki bar and expertise is the absolute best

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 !

We loved our meals. Two of us had the donburi and it was amazing. My husband and I had the sushi, which was the best sushi we have ever had, outside of Japan. Sooo fresh. You can taste the ocean in each bite.

Took my sister to Hana for her birthday. This is her favorite Japanese restaurant in the county and it was my first time (we are half Japanese, so we're picky!) We started with a toro small plate and goma-ae, along with the Dragon Sake flight. Then we had the bluefin belly roll from the specials, and the seared cod as our entree. We finished it all out with a shared glass of plum wine. This was a special occasion, and the meal, atmosphere, service, etc. did not disappoint. Everything was perfect, our server was knowledgeable about all aspects of the meal and beverages, and we were never rushed, while at the same never felt we were waiting a long time between courses. It was very traditionally Japanese in that way. Truly a spectacular food experience.

The restaurant was a pleasant surprised once we entered. It is quite deceiving from the outside. I loved the ambiance, all the servers and staff were super friendly and nice. Our waitress was especially warm and accommodating and make some really awesome recommendations.

I love that the menu was extensive as I now will have to return to try other items. The sushi was fresh and so was the salad. Lots of authentic Japanese dishes to choose from. I found it a bit pricey, however I would definitely return.

There was only one minor issue. I ordered the crunchy sushi and it was the very last item served and there was quite a wait after we had finished the complete meal. Other than that, everything was perfect.

Visit #2 didn't work so well as our intro visit last month. The food tasted like some lower-level chef was in the kitchen, who thinks that "more is always better" - it is NOT. Strip Steak red wine teriyaki was ruined by too much sauce which had way too much shoyu in it. Intrusive and much too salty vs first visit. Altho perfect med-rare, steak was chewy & tough; like typical grass-fed beef maybe? Ugh. Yakiniki donburi (also 2nd time to try) also suffered heavy-handedness: chile-soya was mostly sugar with not enough chile, and way too much of it drowning the rice. Even the beef tasted of too much sugar. This is an intense sauce and should NEVER be over-applied. Ruined the excellent Black Angus beef slices. Maguro sashimi and futomaki roll were delightful; Hana is always on point with sushi.

Consistently my top go-to restaurant for innovative japanese cuisine in the North Bay. Great menu options for people who don't enjoy sushi.......but their sushi menu is top notch. Expansive saki menu and they offer flights and help you decide which saki you'd enjoy with your meal.

Party of 2 people. Final bill was almost $100. For this you get a tiny table facing the kitchen where you can see kitchen supplies and cleaning supplies each time the waiter comes through with food. Only 2 tables in the restaurant have any ambiance. You are out of luck if you don't land those tables. Tables are small and crammed together. Lighting is horrific. Like sitting under a halogen lamp at the FBI undergoing interrogation. Hostess had personality of a limp sour fish. However, looks like the owner spared no expense to decorate and furnish the bar, booze and lounge area next to the restaurant area. This bar area was EMPTY of people when we arrived for dinner. So what is the priority here for this restaurant? Squeeze the diners to pay for the bar? Sushi rolls were small, dry and nothing exceptional. The daily special nigiri was good but very expensive. Won't be returning. Cannot recommend. This was a special occasion for us and it was ruined by the below average dining experience.

A fantastic meal with excellent service and some of the most delicious and special fish I’ve had in a while. If you’re serious about sushi (and sake!) this is your place north of the bridge. You will pay for the quality but it is so worth every dollar.

Hana is by far the best sushi anywhere!!! I've been to at least 30 different sushi restaurants in my life and this tops any of them! Every single time we come here it is top notch, from the service to the amazing food. Super fresh and very artistic! Anything you get is fab!! It's a bit pricey but definitely worth every cent!

Hana lived up to it's 5 star reputation. We especially enjoyed there Saki flights. The sushi was outstanding! The quality of their fish can't be beat. I had a melt in your mouth grilled black bass and my wife had the Wafu Seafood combination. Everything was cooked perfectly. We will definitely return soon.
