Hatcho Ratings and Reviews
Really good food but the long duration of the dining experience caused it not to be completely worth it. Linda seats the customers, takes the orders and prepares the sushi. In addition to her, there is one other person in the front. Curious business practices.
Hatcho offers the best Japanese cuisine in the South Bay Area. Tucked away in a small mall and without pretense, the focus is 100% on the very best authentic Japanese cuisine experience. We frequently have business guests from Japan and when I take them to Hatcho, there never is any disappointment. Obviously, not cheap, but top quality comes at a price. Good value if you appreciate top-quality sushi and sashimi.
Hatcho is a great place if you want real Japanese food! All the selections are excellent and well prepared by the host/owners. A nice variety of food that you don't find in the standard Japanese restaurants in the south bay. Because the host/owners are also the chefs service can be kind of slow and a meal may run you some time and money but if you are patient it is worth it.
My wife and I like Hatcho a lot, it is an authentic Japanese restaurant, very cozy and Linda is very nice and welcoming. I enjoyed Yaki udon, Agedashi Tofu, and many other dishes, I also like the tatami room. It is a great place for dinner near Santa Clara University!
Hatcho is ultimately one of better Japanese food experiences in the Bay Area with its authentic Japanese cuisine. The owners are a beautifully spirited couple. The husband is the chef de cuisine and his wife the welcoming committee. Her one person waiting staff of over 25 years completes the Hatcho experience. Expect to wait to be seated and the serving of the food. But it's worth the wait believe me. Go to Hatcho !!!
I was very disappointed after a great start to our meal which had a friendly welcome by the host and our order of sake and 3 appetizers. The food came out rather quick, within less than 15 minutes which was great. The restaurant was fairly empty when we arrived but was filling up quickly. We gave our waitress a sushi order which we filled in at the table and ended up waiting for almost an hour to get it. By then you could see many customer trying to get their checks, get seated and place orders. I was ready to just forget the sushi but decided to wait. It was obvious they were short staffed but it was disappointing to also see some mistakes on the bill and real trouble with them processing chip based newer credit cards. I loved the food but it was a painful dining experience.
This is basically a Mom and Pop shop. That said, it took quite some time (30-40 min.) for our food to arrive (our party of 5 ordered different combinations dishes).
HOWEVER it was really well-worth the wait when it came! So, if you plan on going, prepare to sit back and relax if the food arrival takes a little bit longer than usual. You'll be glad you did!
I will definitely return.
I've been here twice now. On both occasions we took the approach of ordering numerous appetizers from the sizable app portion of the menu and going at it family style. The dishes are all very tasty and appropriately priced. The only negative I can give is that on both nights the service started out as what you'd expect but quickly slowed and never improved. I like the food but when we're left waiting so long for food or to get any attention at all, it still leaves an impression. Go with extra time, and order a pitcher of beer so you can socialize for a while.
It was fun to watch the food come out to our table and other tables. Each dish was beautifully presented. The fish (we are sushi and sashimi fans) was delicious and fresh. I think the service was having a bit of a challenging night. It took a long time to get someone to take our order, and food for our table of three didn't all come together. I had the impression from things we were told that this was not a typical evening.
We made reservations for 8 and had our own private room, which was nice. My daughters loved the food and the service was great, and the girls are hard to please. This is more authentic Japanese than just a sushi place, so do a little research before you get there so you're not just studying the menu
Sushi rolls were tasty but much smaller than what we usually receive. So, we ordered more. As we were leaving, a lady behind the sushi counter complained because my son, an 18 year old cross country runner, ate so much. You would think she would have been happy because we spent more money.
The food is good or I can even categorize that as great. With my limited knowledge of Japanese cuisine, it is authentic. It also has some not-run-of-the-mill dishes. However, I have to say something about the speed of the service. The crew is friendly, but it took too long to take order, serve food, or take bill. From sitting down till the first dish is served, it is a little over 1 hour.
The bottom line, if you are not in any hurry, the food will worth the wait. And, remember to bring someone with whom you have a lot to talk about. :)
great sushi, lousy service, pretty much sums it up. I think there was a disconnect with OpenTable, the restaurant didn't have my reservation even though I had made it about 4 hours earlier. It went downhill from there. We were finally seated 40 minutes late, then spent 15 minutes trying to get someone to wait on us. We finally moved to the sushi bar and ordered there. The food was great, very fresh & tasty, but we had to inhale it as by then we were running late for a concert nearby. All in all they were very disorganized, I can't say I'd be willing to go back, too risky.
First thing you must know about eating at Hatcho, if you go on a weekend, or a busy evening, be prepared to wait, and have lots of patience, the wait staff cannot handle it when there are so many people. The boss lady, i think she is the only one who can take orders, so you have to wait until she gets around to you when the restaurant is full. There are at least two more support staff, but that is not enough when the restaurant is full or close to full, and they cannot take food orders, only drink orders i think so you have to wait for the boss lady. We really like the food at Hatcho, but like i said, if you go on a weekend or a busy evening, be prepared to have some patience, though it is worth it. Their cooked Japanese food is awesome, love their hamachi kama.
