Our 8 person sushi bar and 20 person patio is located in a discrete corner of La Jolla, a setting well suited to our name, which translate to "Secret" in Japanese.
Chef Mitsu Aihara presents a menu of traditional sushi and nigiri, along with Japanese style tapas using the high quality products and ingredients.
Delicious as usual!!
The food was outstanding ! We sat at the sushi bar and the chefs recommendations were fantastic.
Good sushi but somewhat limited roll selections and wine by the glass. For the price should have nicer ambience but it’s cozy. Only complaint is that when you order they tend to bring a lot of it out at once. If I order appetizer and rolls and something hot in a particular order I don’t expect it all to be served at once. It’s rushed and doesn’t give a dining experience to eat your appetizer, main course - hot and cold food at same time.
Other than that, it’s decent high quality seafood.
Service was outstanding. Food is very good. Prices are high.
A great healthy lunch!
Excellent izakaya style Japanese restaurant. Delicious and interesting dishes. Extremely fresh and well prepared sushi. Only one small criticism: Less wasabi in the wasabi caesar salad! Everything else was perfect,,,
Overall excellent experience. Incredible food. The service was not exactly on-point, but otherwise we were pleased.
Great sashimi... great service. Very nice, quaint place, away from the touristy heart of La Jolla. Really enjoyed our NYE meal....
Great food and service!
This Sushi is made with love. I love their ceramics and Japanese tableware
Good sushi great fresh and creative but lots of repetition
Amazing place. Local vibe. Great quality.
The portions were small and not worth the price. Would not recommend
The best Japanese sushi’s house in town !
Exceptional sushi and service. Himitsu does not disappoint!
Amazing experience!!! Sat with mitsu and had a blast. Do omakase!!!!
Service distracted, not as good as in the past.
Excellent food and service sitting at the sushi bar.
Excellent newer Japanese restaurant. Fish is extremely fresh. There is only a handful of quality sushi restaurants in San Diego and this is absolutely on that very short list.
Great food. Very good service. Staff was really accommodating
I love everything about this place!
The quality and presentation are top notch!
The sushi chefs are all extremely talented and very communicative and informative so you know the details of the ingredients.
I can’t wait to go back again and again. 🍣
Great food and atmosphere, especially at the sushi bar
Fantastic sashimi, freindly staff. This is my favorite thing to do in La Jolla!
Best sushi spot in San Diego! I would highly recommend Himitsu to anyone who enjoys quality sushi.
Very pleasant experience. Service was excellent and the food outstanding. The restaurant is very small but cozy. I’d go back anytime.
A very welcoming setting and the food was delicious. I want to go back every week if I could afford you.
Went there for my son's birthday and let the host know ahead of time for a little surprise celebration. Service was slow and inattentive. And no special treat for the birthday boy. Food was good, but overall very disappointing.
An elegant restaurant with excellent service, serving the best sushi I’ve had in many years.
Excellent sushi. Pretty expensive.
Better Sushi places with better service and better food that is not as pricy.
Amazing Experience. Great quality fish and fast service. From the King Crab Tempura to Nigiri, everything was great!
Amazing experience! Always such incredible sushi!!
Service was on point! One of our friends has celiacs and our server did an outstanding job of helping her find what she could eat on the menu.
Food was delicious and the oysters were one of my favorite dishes. The food is on the pricier end, however it is well worth it for some good sushi!! We will be back!
Brilliant. Authentic. Creative and reasonably priced for highest quality sushi. Very Japanese and excellent. Will absolutely go back!
Amazing every time! Best in San Diego
Best sushi in SoCal! Feels more like a great sushi bar in NYC than in San Diego. Amaaaaaazing!
Amazing! We love this place: The atmosphere and energy are positive; the sushi masters are exquisite to watch (at bar seating) as they do their magic to the fresh, smooth, tasty fish. Every detail has been covered from the freshest ginger to the teacups with indentations for your fingers. There is love, humor, unique sushi and an invigorating evening every time we eat at Himitsu!
