    The food came quick. Our server answered our questions, although incorrectly. He acted like he knew about GF options and ingredients but was incorrect on several counts. He didn't check with the chef to ask if an item was GF or not but instead pretended to know. The outdoor location was lovely and we all had a nice, unrushed lunch. The food was ok. The Miso soup was bland tasting with a strong odor. Friends enjoyed their combo platters and skewers. The sushi rolls were just ok.

    We had a great experience at Blue Sakana. Fish was fresh and dishes were creative. We brought our 3 kids and the wait staff was super patient and accommodating. This place is a gem.

    The food, service, and value were outstanding. Unfortunately, they allowed a patron to be seated near us inside with a French bulldog who sat on the bench and ate off the table. We love dogs but this really was inappropriate and impacted what otherwise would have been a great experience.

    Service was TOP NOTCH! Came here with our family to celebrate our son’s birthday. We are a sushi family and ordered 2 red gingko’s, Hawaiian, Tatso, Danville, Spider and Alamo rolls. All were very good! We also tried the miso mushroom soup and were surprised at how satisfying and savory it was. Our server was so kind, attentive and professional. She carried out a chocolate crème brûlée with a personalized messsge written in the plate. Oh, and a lit candle brought to our table by about 6 team members singing happy birthday. So fun!!! We will be back again and again.
