    Thanks a lot Bou, now I can’t eat sushi at literally any other restaurant. You’ve broken sushi for my wife and I. I hope you’re happy with what you’ve done. See you next weekend…

    It’s an interesting mix of informal bar to formal omakase. Unique and fun! Some of us wished there were some simpler sushi pieces. A lot of the sushi had toppings that sometimes took away from the flavor of the fish. This is just our opinion though as all of us agreed that overall the meal was superb.

    Exceptional…. Service, food, ambience, staff were absolutely amazing. Chef Carl was wonderful and very engaging. Gabriell was on point with the drinks and conversations. Even Angel was very attentive and helpful. The staff had such a great way of working together, laughing and making our experience one to remember. We will recommend Sushi by Bou Albany to everyone.
