Izanami serves Japanese Izakaya fare: seasonally inspired small-plates meant for sharing, accompanied by the best sake list in the west.

We have a beautiful outdoor pavilion with cozy seating surrounded by heaters for a comfortable safe dining experience.

We require guests who dine inside to show proof they are fully vaccinated. There are no requirements for outside pavilion dining. Masks are optional as of 3/15/22 since due to covid cases declined by CDC report.

    One of the best meals we have had in a long time. Amazing ambiance outside, just wish the lights were dimmed a little bit and dogs weren’t allowed on the patio (dog fight broke out). Overall, amazing experience and dish after dish - we were impressed.

    The Nebraska beef that we cooked by stone at our table was delicious. The dry cold sake was also wonderful- what a sake list! I had never seen so many choices! Eggplant and tuna tacos were also excellent dishes. Loved the outdoor ambiance. Will definitely return!

    Intriguing menu with shareable tapas-sized dishes that arrived in a steady flow, each unique and scrumptious. Friendly staff with good advice. Beautiful view over the mountains and open windows provided good ventilation for COVID safety. There’s also an outdoor seating option in a plexiglass structure but the architecture indoors is part of the fun.

    I am a longtime lover of Izanami.. !!! Last evening Sashimi was Wonderfully fresh and perfectly prepared. The Raw Scallop was worth th trip.... I personally thanked your sushi Chef.. I have forgotten his name.. sorry. The eggplant was up to your perfect standards.. but other foods ..mushrooms, etc, were OK..Just not as singularly presented to tasty as in the past. Garnishes on Everything was the same. Not distinctive The quality of your dish ware, plates, etc. were not up to your standards..( dull) All the service folks were working hard, friendly .. and most importantly..!!! YOU, .. Izanami family ... have survived COvid.. Bravo. And I LOVED being with you all last eve. Thank you Y

A fabulous selection of Sakes - and knowledge staff to guide you to the perfect choice! The rooms are beautiful… Go. You will not be disappointed.
