This is wonderful casual Japanese food at its best! After recently being in Japan, Hachi definitely holds up to the great food the Japanese are known for. Make sure to try the beef tongue and the uni is fantastic. The chicken wings and veggie chips are great sides too!

Came here as a group for my friend's birthday and we ordered Omakase course. EVERYTHING was so delicious. We chose Motsu Nabe and we all LOVED ITTT. Their service was excellent. Will come back and try Shabu Shabu.

We booked a table here because of how amzing their online photos and great reviews were. Unfortunately it was way to pricey for the quality of food... We ordered all house specialties and the only one we actually really liked was the beef salad. Also i made a note on open table that was a birthday dinner but nothing was mentioned... the waitresses just seemed overwhelmed and even declined our request to move to a more private table even thou it remained empty for the rest of the night. We (6) end up sharing with two other people while a bigger table was kept empty. So yeah quite disappointed and will for sure not book it again.

I wish I could say maybe instead of no. Good food and service but very small portions at very high prices. Not a great value for a strip mall sushi joint.

Hachi Izakaya Restaurant serves truly quality food and the service is excellent.
Recommend beer and shochu with their izakaya dishes.
Truly a fun and enjoyable dining experience. Will be there again to try other dishes.

Every time I come here (once a week, sometimes twice a week), I am never disappointed. So far the pork cheek and the intestines are my favorite! The flavors are killer, the service is excellent, and all the chefs are so nice. Everything on the menu is delicious. You got to give this place a try! Oh, and they have Orion on draft. FTW!!

This is a nice Izakaya in Costa Mesa with a diverse menu. Service was extremely attentive and the food came rapidly. Everything was good, but I would not say outstanding.

We stumbled upon Izakaya Hachi while we lunched at a ramen restaurant in the same center last Sunday. We looked up Yelp and found this restaurant has great reviews. So we decided to give it a try and made a reservation at Open Table for dinner the same day. We loved everything we ordered. The service was great. All the servers were very attentive and pleasant. We ordered beef tongue, chicken skewers, wagyu beef salad, blue fin tuna sashimi and Shabu Shabu. Everything was delicious, very tasty and fresh. The beef tongue was cut very thick. This was the first time we had such a thick cut beef tongue. It was very tender and juicy. The chicken skewers were very tasty, fresh and tender. The shabu shabu was great too. Excellent food, excellent service! We will definitely be back and recommend this restaurant to all of our friends.

The service was superb despite the fact we were 45 minutes late to scheduled. They took us in after understanding the situation and provided exact food and drinks. It was actually a bit crowded for it was Mother's day, but they still managed to serve food promptly on time and gave mom a red carnation before we leave. Will definitely recommend to friends and family

This is my third visit, and I brought my colleagues for a management dinner. We ordered practically the entire menu, and everybody loved the different textures and flavors. Service is always conscientious, attentive, and staff is always smiling. We will all be back together, and I'm sure everybody will be back individually as well.
