The food is very authentic and delicious, as if we are in a Izakaya in Japan, but with beautiful ocean view.
Great food wonderful service and what a view!
We sat outside and had a beautiful sunset. Super nice folks that run this upscale restaurant. The fish was super fresh and beyond expectations regarding special varieties. We will return when visiting Del Mar again.
Food was amazing
Great sashimi and oyster shooters. The specialty cut rolls were average.
Great quality food
Wonderful, authentic food. Halibut Nigiri is just amazing.
Excellent sushi in a wonderful seaside deck environment...
Everything was delicious! Will always come here when I am in the mood for sushi! Small chilled glasses for beer 👍🏻
Food was good.
Horrible service and warm, gross food
Love it here!!! Best authentic sushi in San Diego!
Very nice, enjoyable sushi restaurant by the coast.
Food was great, but service was spotty. When the owner got involved, it was better.
Mediocre food. Somethings were pretty good (tuna tartare) others not good at all (uni, calamari salad)
Great experience! The sushi was delicious and the service was great. They were very accommodating about giving us separate checks too.
food is very good...
It was way too expensive. We used to come here quite frequently about five years ago, and it was a little pricey then. It is way overboard now. I think the flavor of the food is quite good, but not for the price that it’s marked up. We bought two beers and one sushi roll, and decided that we were just going to have appetizers there. The bill was $55. Two beers and one TINY sushi roll, and it was $55! I was blown away. I’m Lucky enough to live near convoy street, so I will save me Asian food cravings for there.
As a “chronic” Shimbashi customer...sometimes once a week for the past 10+ years...I am amazed by the high level of food quality and service...highly recommended!
This is Japanese small plate dining at it's best. So many choices and every one is excellent.
Always great food at Shimbashi Izakaya. I make a special effort to get to Del Mar and eat here whenever I am in San Diego. Absolutely superb Sushi. The staff are friendly and the food is innovative.
Fantastic as usual! Best sushi and sashimi around!
This is a wonderful restaurant with an extensive and interesting menu and excellent service. We will definitely be going back.
Very good food. Also good service. Prices on the high side. But overall very good. Tip calculator (ex 18%, 20%) is NOT correct as it is based on total bill which includes tax. Why should we pay tip on tax.?
No special offer for our anniversary. We expected something since we selected the dinner place through open table.
I’ve never had anything less than an amazing time at Shimbashi. The food is so fresh I can practically feel the ocean from it. A personal favorite to me and my entire family
I like the small plates concept and the service was good. Generally the food was good as well, except our tempura shrimp was under cooked and cold.
This is our favorite Japanese restaurant in SD. Authentic Japanese foods, interesting menu, gives me feel I am back in Japan. Friendly atmosphere, always remembers us. Good wait staff.
I love Shimbashi Izakaya - without being a local their friendly service makes you feel that way
I came for my husband's birthday - he prefers the sushi bar and it was pleasant to find a spot
the sushi so fresh ..... the ambiance fun but respectful .... so looking forward to going back.
Hate to say it other than view and service was just not very good. Food was bland and very small portions. And the price is ridiculous. I guess you pay for the location. Would never return and would tell anyone there are many better sushi places out there.
We return frequently for great authentic Japanese treats at an informal oceanside bistro
Incredible sushi! We sat at the bar and were treated by Ike, who was fun, knowledgeable, and chatty. He steered us in the right direction with fresh catches (snapper belly was a new bite for me) and was engaging in the right ways. Sake was delicious, fish was incredibly fresh, and the atmosphere was unpretentious in an otherwise sceney neighborhood.
We went with our three kids under 10 at 5pm on a weekday while visiting San Diego, and they were very accommodating! Lovely view, great food and awesome service. We had three servings of the mackarel...it was that good! The hot sake and hamachi carpaccio were also particularly noteworthy, although everything we had was good.
Took my wife here late night for the first time and I might say the sushi was fresh and the service was top notch. I might add the best sushi in town!
Wonderful Japanese food. Feeling is almost Japan Izakaya.
Favorite sushi place!
My favorite Japanese restaurant in North County! Authentic, fresh, delicious and unique dishes. Run by Japanese. Highly recommended!!
We had a lovely meal. We tried a three different specialty rolls (great), a sushi platter (great), ginger beef (so so) and dumplings (very good).
The food and service were spectacular. I’ve been here twice recently, once with my wife and again with the kids. Both visits were very positive.
Live the outside seating. Great selection of sake. Hot food available. Not just sushi.
