    Japonessa is a delicious dining experience from cocktail to dessert. Service was good especially since we had a show to see later. We will definitely return.

    My girlfriend and I were here for a girl’s trip and absolutely loved it! We went right after a hike and it was well deserved. 🤣 We had the Sushi Set A, Sushi Set B, Salmon Roll, Tuna Roll, Spicy Tempura Roll, and Seattle Roll and LOVED every single roll! Our favorite was the Salmon Roll - it was both probably the best Salmon Roll we’ve ever had. It was so good, we ordered a second roll each! We both loved that there wasn’t too much rice in the rolls and the fish just melts in your mouth. We will definitely be back if we’re ever in Seattle. We hope you open a restaurant in Chicago someday! Thank you for the amazing experience.

    Our waitress was exceptional. She made the entire evening extra special. I tipped 25% which I never do to show my location for her excellent service and kindness for the birthday celebrant.

    Took 23 minutes to have our drink order taken. California roll had something hard and inedible in multiple pieces like shell or something.
    Japonessa Sushi Cocina - SeattleResponded on June 10, 2024
    We're truly sorry to hear about your disappointing experience. Twenty-three minutes is certainly not the level of service we strive to provide, and we apologize for the delay in taking your drink order. Additionally, we apologize for the issue with the California roll. Your feedback is valuable to us, and we'll make sure to address these issues with our team to prevent similar occurrences in the future. If there's anything we can do to make it right, please don't hesitate to let us know. We appreciate your patronage and hope to have the opportunity to exceed your expectations in the future.

    Ingredients are of amazing quality but the specialty rolls were disappointing. Understaffed, so our poor server had at least 10 tables that I could see and they were seated in quick succession of each other. The space was quite crowded and loud, so it was difficult to communicate with our server too.
    Japonessa Sushi Cocina - SeattleResponded on June 10, 2024
