    Best Sushi I have had in years - OUTSTANDING! And the wok dishes are also excellent - the shrimp in my wife's entree was prepared perfectly. In addition to the wonderful food, the service was top notch - Juan took amazing care of us - it was an absolutely delightful late afternoon. Thanks again - we cannot wait to come back!!!

    We enjoyed the food except that the sauce on our entree was extremely salty. All I could taste was salt. The tables in the main dining room were all high top, which we, as older people, don't like. I imagine that's a problem for families with young children also. Some low tables mixed in would be better. We sat in the back dining room where the tables were low but there were no windows. The appetizers were very good. Just fix the problem with the salt in the sauce and the food would be great.

    The restaurant smelled very fishy as did the sushi that we ordered. The main dish was very bland and the spring-rolls were very greasy. The service was good when we saw the waitress. Overall disappointing.

    Dinner tasted excellent but you poisoned us with the MSG!!!

    Sakana Sushi Bar - Rocky RiverResponded on July 7, 2022Hmmm, Mike, we do not add any MSG to our dishes, nor do I have a "substitute chef" . I am curious as to the items that were ordered on your visit, and who may have been working that day so that I may further look into this for you. I can be reached at the restaurant 440.857.0700 or via email at cholden.sakana@gmail. We appreciate your feedback. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Christen Holden, General Manager

    This IS the Real Deal for Sushi on the West Side of Cleveland! We come every year from our Home in Las Vegas, where there is an EXCESS of Sushi Restaurants, and get our pallet re-aligned at Sakana! Their Food is THE BEST Sushi anywhere! Crista and her Staff were excellent servers and were attentive without being overbearing. I'm hoping to find time before we go back home to stop in again! Thanks Crista and EVERYONE at Sakana!

    We did not know it was 1/2 price sushi night when we made the reservation for a birthday celebration. The hostess was efficient, the service was amazing, the calamari appetizer was uniquely delicious, the sushi was well done and plated like it was for a photo shoot and the entire night was capped off with a complimentary cheesecake for the birthday celebration!

    We tried getting the spring rolls but they didn't have them. We ordered the Mongolian Beef and the Sezchuan Shrimp, both were very good.

    Sakana Sushi Bar - Rocky RiverResponded on May 22, 2022Joe, Thank you for taking the time to review us, and for recommending us to others! Unfortunately, our restaurant is one of many, worldwide, that is experiencing product shortages from our distributors. We have had to come to terms with this now as "the new norm". We do have quite a few other tasty vegetarian/vegan options that I hope you were able to enjoy. I am glad to see that your entrees were agreeable. We look forward to serving you again soon.

    Goodish sushi in an environment that feels more like an Applebees than an authentic sushi spot. Not bad in a pinch but we’ll stick to Ginko, Sasa or Paralax if we want quality sushi in NE Ohio

    Sakana Sushi Bar - Rocky RiverResponded on April 21, 2022Cleohbjj, I am sorry to see that we did not merit a 5 star review. We are not going for an "authentic sushi restaurant" look, so I appreciate that feedback. We are an asian fusion restaurant with elevated service, so we tend to identify as such. Ginko, Sasa and Paralax are all amazing, unique restaurants that deserve to be recognized for their individuality and quality food and service--they are lucky to have your patronage. Thank you for supporting local. Christen Holden, General Manager

    Cool place. Sushi was good (the Sakana Sampler app was really good). The General Tso's lacked spice and so did other things on the menu that were labeled "hot/spicy." Overall good experience.

    Our rating was bases on the service we received. The food was good. Ambiance and overall experience was good. Being used to great service when we dine there; this evening the service just fell short. No refills on our drink, I had to give my husband my water. The server passed us several times without even checking on us. Another server had to get us our to go boxes. We may not go back for awhile.
