Sushi
Koshō Restaurant at The Barlow is a modern Japanese and sushi restaurant in Sebastopol with a progressive focus on food, local ingredients, and sustainability. We utilize local purveyors for fresh produce and meats as well as national and international providers for fresh seafood and sushi grade fish. Koshō derives its moniker from the condiment of the same name, Yuzu Koshō. Known for its spicy, acidic and balanced nature, it appears throughout the menu in various forms; including Meyer lemon, grapefruit, and satsuma orange koshō. Our chef, Jake Rand, has traveled to many of the famous markets in Japan and has a vast knowledge of selecting top ingredients and the freshest fish and has over 20 years of experience preparing them.

    We left after the first course. The yellow tail was fresh but expensive and not a great presentation/preparation. We also had the Gyoza which was tasteless. The noodles were cooked nicely but the pork filling had no flavor.

    I was really looking forward to going to this restaurant after reading some reviews. Sushi and roles where good, but unremarkable. Ambiance was not really to my liking.. It has that warehouse feel and I could see it getting very loud if there was a crowd. We tried the blackened edamame. Quite a large bowl (we didn't finish) Although I enjoyed it, I don't recommend it with sushi.. It tends to over power. Had the Machi-Bon, they were pretty tasty Salmon and yellow tail sushi where good/average Unagi was good, but cold. #7 role was very good. Several of my favorite sushi/sashimi items where missing from the menu and nothing too exotic.

    It's a cute place, but my husband and I both thought the fish was slightly mushy and the poke salad was strange....all covered in mayonnaise.

    Food was very good and there were some creative dishes. Spare ribs not really all that - okay, but nothing special. The machi-bon was outstanding as was the seaweed salad which was unlike any you've had before. Nigiri was fresh and flavorful Uni was from Australia (!) and was either a bit past its prime or just a stronger flavor than California uni. The kitchen got backed up toward the end and if we hadn't been enjoying talking with our friends, we would have had to cancel the last order we had made. Our server was very nice but also overwhelmed as the restaurant got busier. Will go back.

    Want a great date? Head to Sushi Kosho! Our server Tristan was terrific: He walked us through the menu with ease and enthusiasm suggesting a wonderful sake. You gotta try the grilled appetizers - the mushrooms and eggplant were excellent (Fire!) with a accompanying non-mayo sauce that was out-of-this-world good. While the gyoza wasn’t anything special, the chef’s combo was: sublime every bite. Didn’t think it could get better, but the black sesame ice cream was over the top with its savory flavors. While servers and other staff are not masked, one can easily dine outside and Friday night live music from the brewpub in the adjoining patio was perfect (Odd that outside table wasn’t an Open Table reservation option). Great choice when you’re in the mood for sushi!

    My girlfriend and I wanted to celebrate our anniversary at a nice restaurant with a friendly atmosphere. At Kosho, we were met with hosts and servers that couldn’t care less about our experience. The host barely made eye contact with us and begrudgingly accepted our request to sit at the bar. When asking questions about the menu, the server reacted as if we were stupid. The only person that smiled at us was one of the chefs when he noticed we were curiously watching him plate a beautiful roll. The one redeeming factor about our dinner was the B tier Japanese food and sushi. The trumpet mushrooms were delicious. We were there for less than 30 minutes. Overall, you’re better off burning the $100 bill that’d you’d spend on dinner and drinks for too, and getting grocery store sushi. At least someone at whole foods will genuinely ask how your day is.

    Great restaurant design and location Half empty for Mother’s Day and they were struggling, including the kitchen. We ordered our daughter meal first for her to get started but she got it free our sushi rolls The server was not happy to work that day or is just miserable. We waited so long for our second order of sashimi bowl we were bout to canceled it when it arrived but the Sashimi was not sashimi but instead the fish was butchered with bits and pieces including thin slice of skin, When we mentioned it to the server he was upset and told us I’m calling the Chef…😳what?? What does this mean?…to us it was threatening..and he walked away and never came back. The owner came and over did it by comping the whole meal but ultimately defending the dish, the server and never really acknowledging their mistakes. They need some work, training, adjustments and new people to be able to be successful. Hopefully they will, as I want to go back for a better experience.

    Restaurant seemed to be in a little frenzy when we arrived. Took a while to get a menu after being seated. Server changed after we said “no alcohol.” Don’t know if that mattered or was part of the server change. Seaweed salad tasted like it had canola oil on it - very oily and without much “sea” taste. Double Down roll was good but not outstanding. Miso soup was delicious. Finally got a smile from the server. Had to ask for the check. Will give this one to a frenzied night in Sebastopol. We want Sushi Kosho to stick around….especially since we are locals. Pick up the friendliness, bring up the quality, and change the menu a bit, please!

    They felt a little understaffed (not their fault at all) but in that, maybe the service suffers cause it felt like one persons was trying to cover all the bases at once. We also had some dietary restrictions at the table that felt like they should be accommodated but were not.
