I’ve been to Kisaku several times before, but everything about this visit was exceptionally wonderful. They went the extra mile in COVID prevention measures, including sealing each utensil in paper envelopes and sealing the top of the tabletop water carafes. The food seemed extra delicious and service was impeccable. Kisaku, you really know how to run a great restaurant!

Our server was so generous with his time, quick with his humor, and patient with two teenagers who were new to sushi.

Kisaku’s has always had exceptional food and service. It may be the most under-the-radar high-quality sushi I. Seattle. At dinner yesterday, they were exceptional. The safety measures were clear and effective, and the service was, as always quite good. Our waiter was knowledgeable and provided an excellent sake recommendation. The foos was delivered within minutes of ordering and was both high quality and delicious. I highly recommend Kisaku’s to any sushi lover who would like a first class experience at prices that are more than reasonable.

Dined at Kisakyu last evening and it was a truly wonderful experience! The tables are separated with only seating 4-5 at a time.and there is excellent hygiene with all the plates, etc encapsulated in plastic on the table. Mask wearing is mandatory for those who haven't been fully vaccinated. The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. We had the tempura and it was the best I have had - light and crispy and very fresh. The black cod was perfectly cooked and absolutely delicious too. We had the maple fried brussel sprouts which were fabulous! All in all a perfectly lovely dinner and experience.

Everything from the service to the food was outstanding. Fish was incredibly fresh. Sauces were made in house and everything tasted so great. Prices were so good too, especially for Seattle. 10/10 would visit again.

Kisaku has been my favorite sushi spot in seattle for years. The food and service are always top notch. My partner is allergic to shellfish and they have always accommodated and we have never had an issue with cross contamination. They do have a little higher price point, but I always feel as though it matches the value as the quality of fish and preparation has always been of the highest quality. They also have a good selection of sake and wine, but there is no liquor, FYI.

KIsaku is my "go to" Japanese restaurant for the last twenty years. The original owner sold out a few years ago and the new owner has improved the menu adding new and innovative dishes that make it more appealing. Since I enjoy the raw fish at this restaurant, it is important the fish is always fresh and top shelf, and it is. One wait staff that has been there from the beginning is the best. Seskui (not sure of the spelling) always provides superb service. It goes down a bit from there, but adequate.

If you are in search of an outstanding neighborhood Japanese restaurant, go no further, Kisaku is the place.

Fantastic food as usual. We have eaten here many times and the quality and preparation and service Remains the Same even during this difficult Covid time. They are very very safe & strict with masks, distancing, and no contact service. Highly recommend Kisaku.

We both had awesome starters! The ceviche and albacore sashimi with crispy onions were both great

The omakase was... not as good. There were several good pieces but there were a few things that were off. It’s not clear if they were Covid related (we will definitely try again post Covid)

1) There were two “nigiri” that were asparagus and avocado. Not a big deal, but they weren’t great and there was no indication on the menu
2) All 15 nigiri pieces were served at the same time, so the temperature was off. This seems small, but in my experience, serving pieces in small groups makes a noticeable difference
3) The cuts of fish were really thick. Some of the fish tasted tough because of this

So it was fine for a neighborhood sushi experience, and we’ll come back. But I think a few small tweaks would make a big difference!

Solid neighborhood sushi spot. Very nice service and the fish was on point. Nice selection and served at the proper temperature ( hard to find sushi not ice cold). Nice to dine in on sushi, much better than take out!

I was excited to dine in the restaurant for my son’s birthday. I think this place must be suffering a supply chain problem related to lockdown and Covid. The fish was just mediocre in quality. Did not reflect the great reviews before pandemic. We dined at the restaurant and they do a great job of keeping things safe. But u can’t order sushi a la cart. You have to order 1 of 3 options and they determine the type of sushi. I was disappointed but understood that. Much of the sushi came w small toppings but instead of traditional items like shiso leaf, lemon slice, or fish eggs, the salmon had a sickly sweet topping, another fish had a bit of spicy relish, and they overpowered the fish. Also, I didn’t appreciate the asparagus sushi or the avocado sushi. I’ve had better sushi at places where I took plates off a conveyer belt.

It was OK..
Our first dinner out since covid, were 10 min late and that was kinda a problem for them not the most accommodating or friendly, menu was limited pre set where you pick app/dinner/dessert, the food was all pretty average nothing to really wow us..
Server was very nice, all of us still getting use to a new routine..
Was good to be out tho..
