The whole experience was amazing. I had the cod and it was the best fish dish I have ever had in my life!! And our waiter (I think his name was Caleb) was so friendly and full of knowledge! Ask for him if you can!!! I would love to go back there and recommend it to anyone!!! We also had the Brussels sprouts and those were awesome too!! Overall, 10/10!

One of our ‘go to’ places...always good food and service. However, the changes to happy hour menu, both in prices and food items, are far too frequent.

Server chatted with adjoining table way more than being courteous. Waited 40 min for our appetizers and while he was apologetic blamed it on the printer. And they were only expecting 20people and 90 came in. Really odd. Good service recovery in comping the appetizers but it took a second bill to get that done. Very pricey for good sushi and sake. Would never pay $30 an ounce for wagyu beef. Won’t try here again.

Had an amazing experience the first time I came. I thought it was the best restaurant I had ever been to. I came back with friends and the food was very disappointing. My first visit included a delicious match green tea latte, a wonderful dumpling/spring roll appetizer and a marvelous selection of green tea desserts and a chocolate cake. I came back expecting to order all of the things that I enjoyed so much. All items had been either changed or removed. Servers said they dont make matches green tea lattes, the appetizer looked and tasted different (but was the only option that was remotely close to the one that I had ordered on my first visit), there was only one green tea dessert option and the chocolate cake was also different and very heavy unlike the light and delicious one from my previous visit. Overall it was a very disappointing experience. The food was okay but not even close to the quality of my first visit.

Great sushi and great asian fusion items cooked and presented to perfection. The food was a joy to my taste buds. Besides our main server, who was just great - there was a lot of stuff that walks around and unserves items or adds more water or tends to any needs possible. The ambience is both formal and informal, but is on the upscale side. Strongly recommend!

I've never taken time to rate a dining experience so this is a first for me. Chef Tyson and his cooking team won our praises with unique, delicious dishes and surprisingly generous serving sizes. It was a pleasure to meet him and gain a little insight into his style of cooking. We enjoyed the jumbo scallops, half lobster, and lamb cutlets with a vegetable tempura and spicy sweet potatoe slices as sides. Our lead server, Olivia, and the service crew made us feel like we were their only table, answering all menu questions thoroughly and providing outstanding service. We're already planning our next visit with other friends.

Usually everything is good, but the service was really bad and strange. We ordered wine, one white and one red. They came and we completely different sizes, they tried to fix it, but that did not work. So instead they give us two new ones that were the same and solved the problem. Brussel Sprouts were way to salty, could not eat them. Never came to fill our water.........just not the experience we had previously.........very disappointing.

What a wonderful find for us. The tempura shrimp and vegetables was the best we have ever had. The batter was light, fluffy and there was no grease what so ever. I got their dinner salad which was perfectly fresh and crisp with a wonderful light dressing. For dinner my husband had the ribeye! My dinner was the Chilean Sea Bass! Both dinners were so delicious! The beef was so tender and the fish cooked perfectly. We had dessert which was the creme de pot. It was creamy, smooth and outstanding. Our waiter chose wine for us that we enjoyed. I give this 5 stars! And we will be back next time we are in town!

Fabulous hamachi nigiri and sushi rolls. Our server, Heather, was fabulous. Made you feel like you were a guest in her home. She anticipated needs before we said anything. Her sushi roll recommendations was spot on. We’ve had wonderful sushi in Cabo & San Fran & this ranks as good or better. We sat at the raw bar & watching the chefs was entertaining & they were charming as well.

This is our very favorite place to enjoy dinner. Management, service, food and decor. It can be noisy at times.
But the food makes up for it all. Steaks are better than most high end steakhouses. The Black Cod is on par with Nobu.
Then there is the Pork Belly, bone marrow, and Hamachi Collar.It goes on and on. John is the waiter to ask for.

Miso soup very salty. Soy sauce very salty. I should have asked for low sodium but have not had to do that at other restaurants. With reservation was given a table in the middle even though plenty of tables better located were open. Shusi was excellent but would not go again since they were out of Shapiro beer and service was average.
