Food wasn’t the greatest. Felt as if we were being rushed the entire time.

Best sushi in town hands down. Only seating on the patio which is exactly what every other restaurant should be doing. Also best Japanese Whiskey selection except for this time not great. Great service great food!

We have been enjoying sushi and ramen at OBON for about 5 years, tonight is was amazing what we love most is the FRESH sushi . The calamari was so delish to start and share it was not rubbery or fried ,unique and delish and it left us both wanting more !! Our serever / bartender was on point. We will always come back again and again .

Food was great as was service, did not like music at all...hipster sonic dance tunes played too loudly. Perhaps I’m just getting old but I feel like music should be a feel good background item at a restaurant not an in your face distraction.

Valentine’s Day. Late lunch-early dinner, first time there. Fuku wings were great with a crisp texture. Pretty ballsy charging $9 for 5 wings. Other than than the overpriced appetizer, the entrees were hearty and more filling than expecting. They get an A for presentation and originality of dishes. Staff was attentive & pleasant. There are too many dishes not to go back & try again. Great location.

The food was absolutely delicious! We tried a little bit of everything and it was all great. The drinks are also unique and the service was good. The only downside is that the inside of the restaurant is on the smaller side and it was pretty crowded. The tables are very small and there's not really enough room for your drinks, sushi, and entree.

Funny, we took the time to make a reservation and were given one of the worse tables in the restaurant- we were even hot or freezing because of the very large door opening and closing. Most of the time customers just stood with the door open. My feet were under the table, but as the waiter was going around the corner he caught my foot, nearly fell and spilled water on my foot, better to have a wet foot than a dirty foot though - felt bad- he was super busy. The food was mediocre- the sushi had cucumber in everything, and big pieces of it- not at all traditional. Ramen was good.

I was very excited to come to try this restaurant in downtown because I heard good things about their sushi. I had made a reservation and was seated immediately which was nice. The waitress was not the best she rarely came to our table and it always seemed like she was nowhere to be found when we needed something. The sushi roll menu was limited but I found a roll that sounded pretty good. When I got it, the roll looked very appetizing but when I ate it, the sauce that they had put on the top was so strong that I couldn't taste anything else. It ruined the whole roll and made it hard to even finish. My friend also wasn't very pleased with her ramen either.

The food was unique and tasty. The sashimi was the best and best value I've had. The service was prompt and accomodating. It was new years eve and the place extremely busy but we were treated as if we were the only people there. The only negative was the music that was too loud to allow any conversation.

Obon Ramen and the Monster Roll were phenomenal, the street noodles were also very good but we believe it’s the cause of our stomachache as it was extremely seasoned. The Hamachi serrano nigiris were also unbelievable. Definitely going back

Incredibly unique for a sushi restaurant. I loved everything we ordered, as I did the last time I went. Our server was very personable and the atmosphere is warm and slick at the same time. The only negative is the very loud noise level combined with the proximity of the tables. Fun vibe and great menu.

My partner and I chose OBON for our 5-year anniversary dinner and we left so happy. Our waiter was fantastic and the food, as always, was quite delicious. OBON gave us our best anniversary yet. We’ve been coming to this restaurant for years and it’s great every time. The poké bowl is refreshing and my partner got the bibimbap and it was so tasty! We’ll be back again, no doubt about it.
