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.

    It was New Year’s and we went out for an early dinner. We ordered several things and I chose to keep one menu telling our waitress we may order more later. We were finishing up our bubbly and twice people came to take our plates away. Next they presented the bill. We were shocked. I checked the time. It was 6:45 and then checked the restaurant website. They close at 8. There wasn’t a need for our table as it was nearly deserted. Needless to say, it was a bit off putting. Love this place but that was weird!

    Excellent food. We’ve been here many times and there often seems to be a staffing issue. But the folks working there are always kind about it. Might just be that the industry is still struggling with staff.

    Always delicious but is pricey as portions aren’t large. Typical spend for me there is $40-$50 per person without drinks.

    Excellent quality sashimi and SLICED THIN as it should be, but these days so often is not. Seaweed salad needed longer marinating; dressing had fallen to bottom and the seaweed on top was untouched and tasteless (seaweed really has no flavor to itself; it's nutritious but a 'texture' food) and left in big awkward clumps - poor knifework. Oshitashi was grossly overcooked to a mushy olive green; it should be a bright, squeaky, glossy dark green, parcooked only. Wagyu rib was pre-sliced and good, altho sauce tasted like it had too much mirin in it? There was something odd about it - I was also expecting a little chile heat from a 'Korean BBQ sauce' but there wasn't any. Service was good, a bit perfunctory. Location is across the way from Acre Pizza, btw.

    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.

    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.
