We make the strong case that Kazu has the best and most innovative sushi in Jacksonville. Each roll is mouthwatering (perhaps with a few small exceptions, depending on one's taste). Our Kazu preference is based on 4 1/2 years of sampling the sushi menu, both the regular and special rolls. The wait staff is also very good as well.

Consistently great!

Wish they would bring back the personal “hot plates” for some of the meals! This set them apart from other hibachi style meals.

First time at Kazu. The meal was fine but nothing extraordinary. This is just another in a long list of Jacksonville restaurants that serve good food but doesn’t create much excitement.

Kazu is by far our favorite sushi restaurant in Jacksonville. The sushi is always fresh, the special menu is always innovative, & the taste is consistently superb. Just be aware that prices for rolls & appetizers have increased. Also, our only small complaint is that on a Saturday evening, the wait to be served our sushi order was considerable. Restaurant was very busy with in-house diners & take-out. We forgive you, Kazu, because the sushi was sooooooo good!

Mother’s Day dinner. Nothing special about the food honestly. Ordered unagi don and three specialty sushi rolls. Nothing stood out about the flavor of the sushi rolls. Unfortunately the Unagi Don dish came out cold... had to ask for a reheat. Was not busy at all though. And the service was great! For desert we ordered the Mochi ice cream and the chocolate cake. Everything was a pre packaged type of desert.

Went for Valentine’s

Took 20 minutes after giving us our drinks to take our order

Took over 40 minutes to get the food (we ordered sushi/sashimi for two, so literally all they had to do was cut up fish)

We saw our food sitting at the sushi bar for quite a while

While we were waiting, the waitress barely checked in with us

Tables that sat after us got their food before us

Asked for the manager, had to wait 5-10 minutes for her to come see us

When I told her what was going on, all she said was that “We’re busy, it’s Valentine’s Day”, no apology, only got a discount after I kept pressing the issue

Enjoyed the Tuna Lovers roll and raw Kumamoto Oysters - very tasty and enjoyable sushi. Will definitely visit again in the near future.

Kid friendly too - my kids enjoyed the bento box meal.

The food ordered was lobster gyoza, shrimp and vegetable tempura and the teriyaki shrimp and teriyaki salmon entrees.

All of our food was cooked beautifully and well presented.

Service was excellent, courteous and very attentive.

Recommend on quality, value for your money, and ambiance.

I’ve been coming here since this restaurant opened and I am always glad I did.

We had an outstanding meal! The curry coconut soup was my favorite! We tried all kinds of sushi and the kazu fried rice and washed it all down with the black and gold saki. We are in town for a few days and will probably return before we have to go home!

First, let me just say that I am extremely picky person. That said, I have nothing bad to say about this restaurant. Everything was fresh, plentiful and delicious. Our server (can't remember his name - young, vegan (he told us) man with lip rings) was excellent with full command of the menu and efficient in his service. Several of us had a sushi app (I had the three crab, yum) followed by hibachi bowls and we all loved everything we had. My husband had the hot and sour soup and the shrimp tempura. Not sure how he at it all. It was huge. Will definitely be going back here. Do not hesitate to try it.

We were tourists and came here based on the reviews of other patrons. Needless to say we're weren't disappointed and actually went to the establishment twice before leaving! The bathroom could use a good cleaning. When we arrived at 430pm the bathroom was dirty and paper was tossed around on the floor. Other than that the staff was very friendly. Kept our cups full and was quick with serving their delicious entrees.

We arrived a minute or two before 6. The lady at the front door was on the phone. Finally someone seated us. We usually like to go early for "cocktail hour." It was several minutes after 6 and tey would not give us cocktail prices. The waiter was new but gave reasonably good service. For Japanese food it seemed to be more greasy than usual but okay.
