The special fish was king salmon and it was fatty and delicious. Every single item we tried completely exceeded all expectations I can’t wait to go back.

This quality alone tells me that I am going to bring back a group to this restaurant so that he can really take care of all of us to do a proper Chef Marian Foodies Restaurant Review. This time around, I gave the chef full control to feed me. The oysters were amazing, and each course that followed was very good. I highly recommend the glass door. As in every Japanese experience or should I say most Japanese experiences, if you get the Omakase, which leaves it up to the Chef it’s usually $100 or more. At this particular restaurant they have a Omakase for $49 in addition to the higher priced ones. What an amazing opportunity to let the Chef show you what he can come up with for you!

Service was horribly lacking. Server had zero enthusiasm. Food runners did not even tell you what fish was in the sashimi platters, I had to ask and then he didn't know, had to ask the chef, was still confused when explaining. Wouldnt go back, theres way better options in CV.

We came for Valentine’s Day and we were seated quickly. Food and drinks arrived shortly after we ordered. Unfortunately, the food and drinks were average quality which was surprising given the price. Cool date spot if you are in the area but would not recommend making a special trip here.

We went during the week so there were only a few people. Food is just Ok and pricey for what is offered. Service was attentive but we were about the only ones there. Disappointed, as there are better Japanese restaurants in SD.

Kind of loud, but fun. Food was of average quality (when compared to some of the top sushi places in town ie: Sushi Ota or Himitsu), had cut roll, nigiri and sashimi. Chefs sushi most disappointing. Looked great but had sinew in many of the pieces. Wait staff really nice and attentive. B+ overall.

We ordered half dozen oysters, yellowtail nigiri, scallop nigiri, and salmon belly nigiri to start. The oysters were fresh and their oyster toppings were delicious. All of the nigiri was AMAZING, but the salmon belly was by far our favorite. We also ordered the Rosarito Roll which was recommended by our server Ava (who was awesome!). It was very good! Definitely a great choice. The shrimp gyozas were also very good, and the dipping sauce was super flavorful. If you aren't a big garlic fan like me though, careful with dunking the whole gyoza in there. We also ordered a couple drinks and the bartender pours very well 😄

Glass Box was fantastic. The waiter was a newb and there were people standing not far from our table waiting on takeout from the Ramen place but the sushi was amazing. Fun little space too. Upbeat good atmosphere. Sushi was bomb.
