Jo's Sushi Bar serves you sushi and sashimi and stuff from the kitchen--traditional or Americanized, we've got it here. We do a lot ourselves like the dashi, tamago, gyoza, and even the teriyaki sauce. There are always many today's special fish available, so come in and see what we offer beyond the menu! 日本語でもお気軽にどうぞ!

This family-owned restaurant has been in business since 1996 just an arm's reach from DVC. We're a casual place that likes to decorate the place with Japanese and seasonal festivities. If there's a fish tank at the entrance, that's us--you'll find Nemo and Jacques in there.

Sushi and sashimi were outstanding! The fish was very fresh and were choice selections. Good selection of sake as well. Japanese inspired deserts were very good with a mild sweetness that left the palette very satisfied. Wait staff were also very courteous and helpful! Will definitely be back.

We love this place. Food is so good and fresh. The longtime staff is friendly and attentive. They genuinely appreciate your presence and enjoy providing you with a great meal. So nice that they take reservations now, as it can get crowded.

Our new favorite sushi place in the Bay Area without question. Chef special (amikasse?) is THE way to go. Had barracuda. Da bomb. super friendly and efficient service, too.

On the plus side, the sake menu was deep and there was a lot of sashimi options. The sushi menu itself isn't great however, with little variety and not many options.

Terrific amikase. My wife and I choose to accept the chef’s recommendations and so tremendous - never had barracuda before though I’ll be a repeat future customer. Excellent customer service. Next visit maybe we’ll try the sushi bar.

The best local sushi in the east bay! Joe, the sushi chef, slices the highest quality sushi by buying the most freshest fish and the most unique fish. After getting over the beautiful presentation of the sushi, it is very noticeable that the way Joe combines ingredients is at a higher skill level. Not only is the food fabulously delicious, the service is probably one of the best I have seen anywhere. The attention from all the servers for our one table never let up! The location of the restaurant is in within an outdoor strip mall which hides this unassuming restaurant door front. We are fortunate to find this gem in a sea of horrible restaurants.

This is the best sushi I have ever had.
Our omakase experience at Jo's sushi was unbelievable.
Even after coming back here for few times a month, we still look forward to coming back again the next week.
I would say Jo's sushi is the one of the top Japanese restaurant in Bay Area!
Never a disappointment and the service is great.
Enjoyed everything, thank you!

This is a wonderful place with attentive staff and authentic Japanese food. There are many selections from appetizers to dessert. The don buri, grilled squid, and Japanese cheesecake were the best. The creme brulee was a work of art. We had a party of three and wanted for nothing. They also have non-alcoholic beer.
