    I ordered the beef fried rice. I have had this twice before and it was great. This time it wasn't beef but they said it was. More like pork. I said then something's wrong with the beef. I then had the chicken fried rice which was very good but was disappointed in the beef.

    Fabulous customer service! The music was mostly 80’s and 90’s, which would not be first preference, but overall a good vibe. The crispy duck was excellent, as was the BiBimBop, Bulgogi Beef option. Very healthy portions and my mom loved her GF sweet & sour chicken!

    Sushi was great!!! One suggestion is that the brand of soy sauce on the table is extremely salty. The sushi was so good I took a few rolls home for an evening snack. I used my favorite soy sauce that I have at home, and it was perfect!!!

    Husband ordered the Volcano with shrimp. He likes hot and he said it was. I am gluten free and ordered the beef fried rice. The best fried rice ever, however, I got a reaction from it even while eating it. Had a worse reaction overnight. I guess it's not gluten free but why?
    Sakana Sushi Bar - Rocky RiverResponded on February 13, 2024
    The fried rice is not gluten free unless requested. Soy Sauce and another thai soy-based sauce are added during the construction of the dish. We do have a lot of diners that order it GF though. I apologize you had a reaction but thank you for coming in.

    Scheduled a reservation for 2 for 7pm at a standard table. When we arrived we were told that they only had sushi bar seating? I asked what the point of the reservation was and the hostess said that the people ahead of us might have just been taking longer than expected. I said fair enough and sat down next to TWO open tables. One of which a couple sat at 20 minutes after we were seated and another which no one sat at the whole duration of our visit. This was our first date night we were able to go on in quite a bit of time and we still had a pleasant dinner but it just would have been nice if we actually got to be across from each other rather than crammed into bar seating with not much wiggle room.

    Food was delicious. Service was fine. Restaurant was very loud. We had reservation for 2 at the counter and the hostess acted like she had no idea what to do when we arrived. Overall, good place to get some great sushi.
    Sakana Sushi Bar - Rocky RiverResponded on November 4, 2023
    JLuoi, Thank you for taking the time to review Sakana, and for the wonderful rating. On the weekends and on our half priced Tuesdays during peak hours, it is difficult to find a "quiet" spot in the bar area of the restaurant. The bar area has vaulted ceilings, so when everyone is talking, it is louder than usual. We do have another dining area in another room that tends to be less loud. The next time you come in, or put in a reservation, you are able to request to be in our main dining room area. Also, with the weather changing, we generally get very busy around 6pm until 9pm. I have noticed that earlier hours(between 4pm and 6pm, it is a lot quieter. I hope this is helpful. We appreciate your support and look forward to serving you again soon.
