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.
Very good food. Consistently good. Loved the lobster salmon roll. Great squid legs (karaage).
