Sorry to say this was not a great experience at Fuji as it's been in the past.
We had to wait for our reserved time and then once seated we were pretty much ignored . Had to request that a server take our order. Water was not replenished, silverware not replaced, delivery of items not consistent such that some of us in our group of 6 had to wait for a small plate or an entree for longer than appropriate given that others at the table were served.

Any restaurant can have an off night for service but one would hope that some accommodation would have been made here. Nothing was done to compensate us for the truly poor service we received this past weekend. The staff was well aware that something was amiss and yet did nothing to make it right.

Sadly have to say I won't return here any time soon despite how good the food continues to be.

The food was really phenomenal - there were a lot of options and the fish was fresh and served creatively. The atmosphere and service didn't seem to match the caliber of the dishes. We dined on a Friday night and the staff took a long time taking our order and giving us the check. The ambiance was also not as refined as I was expecting for the price. However, the food is good enough to bring us back - we'll just have a better sense of what to expect.

Birthday celebration. Food was excellent. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. They helped to surprise the guest of honor by bringing out dessert with a birthday candle (I provided) and sang happy birthday. Courses were not rushed. We were able to enjoy the food and conversation. Restaurant is quiet and easy to have a conversation. Will definitely be going back.

Never a bad meal at Fuji. Although this business changed hands a few years back it was passed to creative and skilled hands and the restaurant has not lost a beat.

If you have never been go. This is the spot to bring out the good bottles of Pinot Noir and/or sparking, both pair well with the menu.

Longtime customer. Always an above average experience. Fuji is in the same category as Sagami as far as food quality but cuisine is more modern. A bit pricey.

The food and service were fantastic. We had beef sukiyaki and it was the best I ever had. The soft shell crab and sakura roll were also terrific. The black sesame mochi ice cream was great.

The food at Fuji is outstanding. Everything is made fresh. The sushi is terrific with many varieties. I love the lobster rolls and eggplant appetizer is delicious. I had the shrimp and vegetable tempora which was big enough to share. My husband had the beef teryaki that was tasty. This is an authentic Japanese restaurant.

The food and wait staff are amazing. We had a 7:45 pm reservation. We had brought Sapporo and sake with us and the staff cheerfully brought us the appropriate glasses and an ice bucket for our sake. We got several appetizers for the table. Dishes were cleared quickly once we had finished. The waiters came multiple times to refill our hot green teas and water. We all had maki and it was delicious. I especially recommend the Rainbow Roll, Crazy Horse, and the Guacamole. The live scallop sashimi was also excellent. They gave me gluten free soy sauce when asked. We ordered more than one round of sushi. Though the restaurant wasn’t closed, we were the last ones to leave - but the wait staff were still polite and accommodating. We love this place and we’ll definitely come back.

We tried a variety of sushi during our meal and it was mediocre. The sauces were too heavy and the flavor of the fish, both with the sashimi and the rolls, were not memorable. The service was attentive, but given the quality of the competition in the area, we will most likely not return.

Fuji never disappoints our family. The food is excellently and beautifully prepared. Flavors are rich, and the presentations have colorful and simple elegance. The staff is friendly, professional, and helpful. There are dishes for the adventurous, as well as the timid, with a wide range of flavors. Always a five star choice for us.

Fuji is always a treat for my husband and I. We both have loved sushi for many years. At Fuji you will find the seafood to be incredibly fresh everytime. Fuji, however has some creative twists not found elsewhere. This time I tried a tuna sashimi with smashed avacado. It was beautiful and it danced into my mouth. Wow. You should go. We will be back.

Slow service. Very very slow. If it was busy, I could be fair, but it wasn't very busy. I waited 30 minutes for a starter and then received my main course 2 minutes after receiving the starter.
Food was good, but lukewarm.
What killed the mood of a decent night was being asked, while my husband and I were in the middle of eating, was if we could stand and help move our table over to make room for other patrons who would be seated soon. I get its a small space and they were apologetic, but that was absurd.
