We were wanting small plate type dinner so we decided on Nijo. We went during happy hour which serves until 7pm. That's def the way to go. You can order off regular menu but there was enough variety on happy hour.

I've been to Nijo a number of times and enjoy the sushi and sashimi dishes on the menu. It was a busy day and even with reservations still had to wait to get seated. But once seated, the service was fine and the meal hit the spot.

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.

Nijo is good. The service is friendly and attentive and the cocktails are very good. The sushi is decent. Not great, but good fish and a nice selection of apps.

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.
