Unlikely to return, service slow noise level too loud. Food came out in an odd order. They have dropped in quality since our last visit. They are in need of improvement in management.

Good sushi. The food was well prepared and creative rolls. The only complaint was the cooked food came out when all the sushi was eaten already: the server kept us in the loop though and gave a little discount. There was live music so it was a loud setting

I was disappointed that I didn’t get the discount I was promised for making a reservation for a time that they’re closed and I wasn’t notified beforehand.

The hostess wasn’t very good. She was new and didn’t reserve our seats for us and two gentlemen sat themselves where we were supposed to sit. We eventually were able to sit there?, but then I am notified that she did not check us in for our reservation on opentable.

We are very regular customers and love harney, especially the sushi chefs. They have had a bit of turn over of their servers and hostesses. However, management should know that she didn’t do a very good job on a very slow night.

Everything was great, our server was awesome and the hostest accommodated all of my special requests perfect. It was my wife's birthday so I came in early in the day to drop off roses and a special cheesecake to surprise her. I reminded the hostest to let the server know it was a surprise,noted I'm sure it was obvious by bringing all this in at 11am when I had 745 pm reservations. Everything went perfect...almost. My wife is very beautiful and I have to deal with guys staring at her constantly it's just part of having a beautiful wife,I'm used to it. One particular busser that kept walking by our table kept staring, I figured he was checking my wife out or obviously checking our table for good service, but it looked like he was staring at my wife's direction. Whatever it happens. As I asked for the check I got up and secretly told the host if they can bring out the dessert with the candle etc. I go back to the table to wait for my wife's surprise face as that same busser walks up to us and says the only thing he ever said to us... "Hey guys your cheesecake will be right up in a minute they're getting it ready" walks away. Could just be clueless or could be a jerk move...anyways that ruined the surprise and it left a bad taste. Won't stop me from coming back just won't plan any more surprise dinners there.

In from out of state, chose this restaurant to celebrate my birthday because of the reviews on Open Table. Wanted sushi for dinner. Food and service were excellent!
It's a bit of a construction zone outside the restaurant, but don't let that deter you.
Great sushi, wonderful people!

The server wasn't that helpful for being our first time. She took forever to get drinks and refills. And it was slow. Wish they can make their famous bloody Mary's all the time. Disappointed it's only served on Sunday from a certain time.

We not only had magnificent Sushi, appetizers and drinks, but our service was excellent. One of our party had hearing loss and they kindly seated us in a quiet area. The birthday girl was given a delightful desert that was enough for all of us to share. We couldn't have had a more amazing meal.

We celebrated our daughter's 30th Birthday at Harney Sushi while visiting Oceanside. We were a group of 9 and they sat us in a perfect, private area! The service was exceptional, the sushi was very creative and delicious and the drinks complemented our dinner! When we visit next year this restaurant will be on our list to visit!
If you love sushi this is a must!
