Sushi was delicious and fresh! Nice, romantic ambiance.
Quality of food was excellent. Disappointed that sushi was priced per piece. Sushi is never made one piece at a time, it’s made in a roll of approximately four pieces. Price should reflect a four piece roll, so that diners can be assured a fresh, made to order roll.
Smallish spot. Great attentive service. Fresh flavorful specialty rolls that were so well crafted that I didn't want to corrupt the balance with soy sauce. I will definitely be back!
Always good food, great service.
Great waiter, great food, and excellent music selection!!
Seems they had an unexpected rush with only one server on schedule - he did a great job but was a bit overwhelmed!
My husband and I ate here on a Friday night. The host was very nice and informed us of a craft beer place to get some beer with our dinner. Sushi was fresh and delicious. I had the lychee creme brûlée for dessert and it was excellent. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
We live close to Izumi & have been there twice before. This was by far our best experience as our server, Benny, gave us some great suggestions! The sushi was reasonably priced & all of our selections were delicious. We look forward to going back again soon!
While everything was delicious the portion size of specialty rolls was particularly small. Additionally we were seated at the sushi bar even with a reservation.
Lovely place. Our go to spot. Love it.
the sushi could have been better. the shareables were amazing
Nice food, nice environment. Would go back. Friendly service.
We love Izumi! It is a staple go-to for us. We go for special occasions or just a quick meal. It is consistent in price and quality. The staff is great and it is a very cozy dining room. It is wonderful in the warmer months because you can sit outside and really enjoy all that Passyunk Square has to offer.
I made a res here for my friend's birthday and the staff so kindly brought out a dessert with a candle - what a delight! The food was yummy (we particularly liked the Izumi Sushi Sampler). The atmosphere is very nice - great people-watching out the windows overlooking Passyunk. Thanks for a lovely evening.
Was wonderful but a group of women that were obviously drunk ruined it for everyone else. They were obnoxious and loud. Both table next to us were all talking and staring. The waitstaff should have asked them to settle down.
What we did receive was delicious but unfortunately we did not receive our entire meal because the kitchen misplaced our order and then closed without ever preparing it. So we only received our appetizer and that was a little disappointing. However our sever was apologetic and brought us a dessert. We will try again and hopefully will be able to have a full experience.
Great staff they are very friendly, amazing food! Brought my boyfriend and he loved it! Not on time with the reservation, but they opened our bottle of wine while we waited (which was super nice because my man was getting hangry!) Would come again for sure!
Tried the chef’s tasting appetizer this evening - it was absolutely amazing!
Also had the sashimi large plate. The salmon was the best, closely followed by the octopus.
Outstanding service. Love Izumi!
Dined here with three friends and had an amazing dinner. We loved the Asian spin on traditional American fare (like short ribs with wasabi mashed potatoes). Everything was delicious, and we will definitely be back!
Have been meaning to go to Izumi for many months. Finally, on a whim, we went and simply loved every minute of it. What a gem and somewhat under the radar on high-profile Passyunk Ave. It shouldn't be. It will be high on our list from now on.
We always enjoy our meal at Izumi's. Great food and wonderful service!
Been here multiple times. It never disappoints. Service is excellent.
Izumi is the best place in South Philly for sushi. It is the place my wife and I goto for our special events in life.
we asked to be sat outside, but the wind and cold made the seat unenjoyable. Surprised that there was no heating element under the awning. The food was fairly bland and for the $100 price tag for 2 apps and 3 rolls, we're not that excited to return.
not impressed at all. they didn't have anything unique on the menu. average sushi rolls. edamame were not even salted. kitchen looked pretty dirty...will not come back
Izumi has never ceased to amaze me in all the years I've dined there. I highly recommend it.
It was an amazing experience we went for my birthday and the food was incredible and the staff did a very good job at making me feel extra special on my special day
The wife and i ate here on a Friday night recently. We started with the edamame and some individual sushi and sashimi. Our main course was the chef's selection for the Sushi and Sashimi plate. We couldn't recommend it enough - it was Fantastic! Can't wait to have it again. There were no throw-in pieces of sushi that you wouldn't like. Couple different types of tuna, mackerel, salmon - they were all great!
Enjoyed our meal but menu somewhat limited. No cooked salmon. No brown rice. Ala carte can get pricey. Great location in South Philadelphia with outdoor opportunities as well.
Inexpensive BYOB just a few blocks from our house!
I LOVE this restaurant. The food is so fresh and delicious and my family really loved coming here when they were in town last weekend. It did get a little hot in the restaurant though...the A/C may have been down (or maybe there is no A/C) but otherwise I cannot complain! Amazing sashimi and entrees!
While the service was great at Izumi, the quality of the food simply wasn't there. The sushi rice was flavorless and the consistency was off. The quality of the seafood also wasn't there.
They did a great job explaining the specials on the menu. We had two gluten free people in our party and our really friendly waiter did an excellent job making sure that we knew everything they could eat and what they could accommodate. They do have gluten-free soy sauce there so no need to bring your own. Cute location in a nice downtown square in South Philadelphia. Prices were reasonable and, couple that with BY0B, and you'll have a nice reasonable restaurant for a Japanese feast!
One of my favorites in East Passyunk. Not only was the food amazing, but the atmosphere was extremely inviting. It's small inside, but well worth the reservation and price! Amazing. Will be back soon!
Sum up the whole dinmer in one word... UNBELIEVABLE... and thats coming from someone that doesnt eat sushi...
Delicious food, including some very unique specialty sushi rolls. The monster roll was delicious! And the service was efficient and attentive. Plus, it is BYOB. We would go back in a heartbeat.
Fish was incredibly fresh and flavorful - loved the sashimi sampler appetizer. I was also able to experience Uni here, not that I haven't had the opportunity before, but it was recommended by some friends to specifically try it here.
Uni was interesting, you could tell it was very fresh and it was a pleasant experience overall.
Excellent sushi and great service. A real gem in south Philadelphia and it's a BYO!!
As always, an excellent meal, superb service. Owner approached our table to introduce us to some dishes we hadn't tried. Will definitely try again.
The appetizers were out of this world. I highly recommend the short ribs. The sushi and sashimi was good.
