    The food, is always amazingly tasty and original. They *need* more staff!!! Went for my birthday and got there @6pm, was still waiting on one of our four rolls at 7:50 pm. We watched the other two servers constantly check on their tables, but we were forgotten about by our server guy. He did give us a wine glass on the house after we waited a half hour for the third roll. The first two rolls and edemame were received pretty quickly. It seemed like they were more concerned with their to-go orders than their dine in customers. I think they just need to hire more people or take less to-go orders. I’d like to reiterate how tasty the every single roll is though. Tequila roll is the best if you like spicy, zesty islander is refreshing and mild, and the mafia roll and black rice is the best- 10/10 hands down. We’re going to support Kizuna because they have the most original sushi around, and hopefully they’ll grow into the bigger space soon!!!

    They were very quick in making the food and the server was very on top of everything. The staff was very nice and helpful. The food was really good. I like that they give more pieces per roll than a normal sushi restaurant.

    The food was good. The service was terrible. First the waiter forgot our drinks, then he forgot our food. We had to remind him (while he was wandering around) that we ordered a soft drink and tea.

    The food was fine—it was good sushi. However, the environment rubbed me the wrong way, in that it seemed a little “too comfortable.” One server in particular socialized a bit too much with certain guests, taking precious time away from others who were waiting to be seated, have their own order taken, etc. One couple in particular were standing at the front, waiting to be greeted. Meanwhile, the server was socializing, talking about a recent retreat that he went to over the weekend with his girlfriend. For this reason, the noise level was very high and distracting, taking away from the experience of actually enjoying dinner. I understand that “regulars” exist, but there needs to be a level of professionalism when you’re on the clock. Perhaps more employees would aid with this issue, as I did notice only two of them at the time—they were responsible for hosting and seating guests as well as taking and delivering orders to tables. All in all, just a poor experience because of the environment.

    Best sushi around! Had the 'Anne, thumbs up" and 'Black Monster" rolls as well as miso soup and edamame. I ordered the black and gold saki - very good as well as a very interesting ( albeit confusing) presentation.

    Was there for 2 hours. Food came out slow but was delicious. Server kept forgetting everything and didn’t write down our order so that’s probably why. Love the food but seriously need to get more staff, these days it’s totally understandable

    I like the new addition. They have made it much bigger and improved the decor immensely. As with most places they are suffering from supply issues but we were able to find plenty to eat and drink. Very friendly service.

    Came here with my boyfriend on a Sunday night and business was good (something I love to see!) it was busy and it looked like they were understaffed but they handled it perfectly and were so kind and professional. Great service and ever better food. Ingredients were fresh and they had different/cool rolls on the menu which I can always appreciate!!! Absolutely recommend this place!!!

    I've dined at Kizuna pre-COVID and now during COVID, and it is still one of my favorites. The staff is always very attentive, and very accommodating (I have food allergies, and most recently dined with a friend that is pregnant). And the food is not only delicious, but also well priced.

    Outstanding service and food. Although small place and can get noisy but that didn't bother us. Our OpenTable RSVP got us a table immediately. The menu features various rolls, both basic and fancy/original, and a la card sushi items. Don't expect other Japanese stables like tempura, ramen, and grilled meat.
