We do our best to keep the restaurant temperature at a comfortable setting, but during these hotter days it can be a challenge for our system to keep up. Thank you for the feedback; we will be sure to give this extra attention.

I have dined here twice and enjoyed the experience a lot both times. The food is consistently delicious and the servers provide great recommendations. There were four of us dining this time and we decided to share 5 sushi rolls - was the perfect amount for our group. I also like that they have non-sushi options as well, in the event someone in your group would prefer other options. I will definitely dine here again.

We went for our anniversary. Although it meant dealing with all the construction it was so worth it! The seven fish sashimi salad was amazing and the Chef’s platter was well customized to our spicy request. Thank you for a much needed night out for just the two of us!

We had a great visit! Had to change the reservation time due to work issues but we had no issues with getting a table on the patio. Great service as always I swear about 4 or 5 servers know us when they see us.

I thought the food was good. The service was excellent. The sushi flavors were good but the sushi rolls fell apart and were unevenly cut. I was just expecting more based on the reputation.

I have to start by saying, that I am in no way a sushi expert. However, my wife has Celiac and Maru offered an excellent array of options for us to share as well as a dedicated gluten free menu (which was not easy to find on the website, so I wasn't sure they would have one.) They also offered Tamari sauce which is gluten free in place of the standard, non-gluten free soy sauce. I would recommend it to anyone with and without Celiac, and we will certainly be returning.

Be prepared for relatively close quarters and a high noise level, but it accompanies great food. The kitchen sent out one of our rolls wrong but comped it and got the right one out to us immediately. Prices are a little more special-occasion for us but we'll definitely be taking advantage of happy hour specials in the future!

Great selection of sushi with some very unique options. Loved everything we ordered (about eight separate items). Our favorites were the Crouching Tiger, Sexy Bacon and crunchy shrimp but everything was delicious.

Server was fast and friendly. She checked in with us on a regular basis and seemed to sense when we needed something.

Great restuarant. Will become a regular stop in our dining routine.

We made reservations for a dinner experience to celebrate a birthday. Our special seating request was honored by the hostess. The house had actually read the reservation and seated us accordingly with no mention, nor hassle. The service was excellent and the food was presented well and tasted great.

We love Maru! The food and service is excellent! Just wish that the restaurant itself was larger. Way too cramped. A table for 2 is never a table for 2 your basically eating with strangers cause the tables are so close together. We still come back cause the food and service is great!

Amazing service. She took the time to review the whole menu with us- but asked us if we preferred it or not which is nice. Made eye contact and was kind. Offered an appetizer as first time visit, and it was my birthday and offered a dessert on them. The food was delicious and so were the desserts. Great option if you need some substitutes to play around or are GF. It seemed a little tight in there for space, and nothing to wowing about the atmosphere. But it was simple, elegant and lots of window natural light! I will deff be coming back.

Not as great as it used to be. Sushi is smaller and more mainstream. Over priced. Service is just ok. When going as two for a date the tables are way too close and not a good ambiance. Too loud and too close to other tables. This place used to be an awesome date spot and one of our favorites. Not anymore. Last night was disappointing.

Asked for a booth on reservations made about 3 weeks before; arrived 10 minutes early & they gave away the booth while we were standing waiting. They seated us at a table, but gave a complimentary appetizer to compensate. Very nice gesture.

Service was great. We thought the free appetizer for being first timers was really nice. Beer selection was thin, would have enjoyed some more beers on tap. We ordered four roles of sushi that were good but not the over the top everyone was raving about who recommended. The atmosphere was not the traditional Japanese atmosphere more like a traditional downtown American restaurant.
