The three of us had a wonderful time. The cocktails were fantastic, the salads were refreshing & the sushi was scrumptious.

I went with a date and we got the chefs choice six course meal. Each course came with a paired sake. Everything was fresh and the sake pairings were perfect. The service was outstanding. Great sushi spot.

Nijo has become one of the go-to places for my husband and me when we drive to Seattle every month or two. This time the restaurant was steadily busy, but service didn't appear to be overwhelmed. We find the happy hour menu, which runs until 7 pm every day, to have everything we need and be super reasonably priced. We'll keep coming back, for sure.

Nijo was absolutely outstanding. My boyfriend and I arrived about ten minutes before our reservation was guaranteed for, yet were seated immediately regardless.
The ambiance was perfect. Dimmed lights to set a casual and intimate mood, light noise from conversations around us made it feel comfortable, leaving us feeling like we could hold a conversation at a normal tone, while at the same time it was not at all noisy in the restaurant.
Our server was kind, polite, and speedy. Our service was impeccable, and the quality of each dish was exceptional.
We absolutely love Nijo, and this wonderful experience is just another to add to our memorable times there.

I've been here before and the service and food have always been exceptional. The prices are quite a bit higher than what you would find in the International District, but for me - on occasion - it is worth it. If the prices were more in line with other sushi spots nearby, I would come here more often.

Happy hour menu is fantastic! We love coming here and go for birthdays and family dinners. The salmon collar is the best appetizer! We also ordered the fried oysters, calamari, short ribs and seared scallops... and about 8-9 rolls. The service is always on point, very friendly!

Food was decadent. Cocktail was dangerously good. Service was great. Ambiance was exactly what we were looking for after walking around downtown Seattle. We went for happy hour so we indulged at a reasonable price. Although there was a cute patio seating area we opted to sit inside by the window.

I had great expectations from the reviews on Yelp and other sites. Surprised to find out from the server that there's no happy hour on holidays such as Labor Day etc. - its not mentioned anywhere. For the price, it's worth it only if you visit during happy hours. We tried the so called famous Agedashi Tofu and found it pretty bland. For drinks we had Asahi Draft beer and Buddha's Tonic. We tried Fried Calamari ( ok taste, a bit more rubbery than I expected), Spicy Tuna Roll , Spider roll...and Firecracker Roll (off-menu but pricey at $18). Total with tips came to almost a hundred bucks - the priciest dinner I've ever had but not the best. Ambience was fine but service was excellent - the server was very attentive and fixed our wobbly table as soon as she saw it. Oh, and the flies can be a distraction.

We went on a warm evening and it was too hot to eat inside but an outdoor table was available. Lots of city traffic noise but much cooler than inside. We began with two appetizers which were good; the beef wrap rolls and Kalbi short ribs. We ordered the small plate of broiled salmon which was so "fishy" and overdone we sent it back to the kitchen. We ordered several seafood rolls which were good. Overall a good though not exceptional meal.

Nice quiet location off the beaten path away from the tourists. Delicious sushi. Very nice ambience. Very disappointing service, probably 45 minutes to get our first two dishes. To be fair, they comped me a beer and brought our third dish quickly. If I knew the service would improve I would return tomorrow.

Made a reservation for my daughter and I to have dinner before attending a play. I had been there just once before and the waitress recognized me right away, which I thought was impressive and spoke volumes to their friendly staff. Since we mentioned our plans to attend a 7:30pm show, our food came out rather quickly but it was still presented beautifully and tasted delicious - both fresh and refreshing! Overall, it was a relaxing dining experience because of the ambiance but also felt fun and adventerous because of the menu options. Our only regret was running out of time to enjoy dessert, but now we have another reason to go back.
