Great menu for restaurant week. We enjoyed the soup and Creative poke bowls😋😋😋😋
Sushi Kosho has downsized since the flooding that closed the restaurant. It is still a very welcoming elegant casual dining venue. The quality of the fish is excellent. The sushi rice is uncomplicated but not as flavorful as the best sushi I have had. The sushi is prepared with a little wasabi on the rice underneath the fish (not my favorite given that wasabi is served with the sushi and I would have gone lighter) and is served with pickled ginger and wasabi. Soy is available on the table. We had the restaurant night dinner that started with very good miso soup and a memorable seafood salad and included sushi, sashimi and a tuna roll. While quality of fish makes this the best sushi in Sonoma County for me, it does not compare with the best sushi restaurants in SF because it does not offer complexity in seasoning and light complimentary sauces applied to the sushi by master chefs. I do not usually use or want soy with my sushi when prepared at my favorite sushi restaurants but it was necessary here because of the lack of complexity and relative blandness of the rice. 4 stars for best fish quality in Sonoma County.
The sushi was excellent and the dessert was just awesome. Our server was perfect.
It’s fresh and delish with unique combinations of the rolls. Delish!
Service was prompt and pleasant. Nicely set tables with crisp linens and great dinnerware pieces.
Both the specialty rolls and the nigiri sushi were excellent. We love this restaurant!
Great service. Food is middle of the road for sushi. Well presented. However, it on the higher end of pricing. Although promised otherwise, not many options for GF folks. Overall it's good.
it is still new?
Food service was terrible : (
When we were in front, no host/hostess wasn't there , even waitress never greeting in 10 min.
Food was good, but it took 40 min to serve for sushi is not good..
Really great food and our waitress was awesome. Getting seated on the other hand was quite bazaar. The hostess treated us with “be with you in a minute.” I had a res and expected her to come back but she never did. She cleared tables, went to the bar, and basically left us standing at the hostess station for 10 minutes. Another group walked in and also got the same greeting until they grew impatient and walked to her and were seated promptly. I was there first so of course this made me follow suit. I was told “I could sit at the table by the open door when there were other similar tables in less drafty locations. I suggested another table which we were aallowed to seat ourselves at. I was happy when our waitress took over and we had delicious food and great service. Hope this hostess reads this review and clues up to satisfactory customer service. I will be back.
love this place. the food is fantastic, the ambiance is casual and understatedly elegant.
The fish was so fresh, it melted in your mouth. Best sushi I have had!
Excellent Japanese food. Very pleasantly surprised by the quality and great taste of all the dishes.
Absolutely delicious sashimi. Some of the most flavorful fish I have ever eaten. Desserts are exquisite and unique recipes.
Excellent food! Everything we had was great! The Blackened Edamame is addicting! Love the Country Miso, the Mushroom Salad and the Chicken Thigh were my favorites! Only bummer, no dessert!
The portion size is relatively small for the cost but the quality of the food was excellent. Will recommend to friends and will dine there again.
Best sushi in Sonoma County. Fresh, High quality ingredients handcrafted with such care and creativity. Love this restaurant!
Best place for sushi in west county. Chef/owner is super personable and fun to hang with at the counter
Very small portions. A portion of my chef's shashimi was tough. My partner's cod came with some unappealing white sauce under neath it. Overall, the value to price was just not there. Disappointing given that there seemed to be more staff than quests. Also, the place was loud given that there were next to no quests. The tables are too close for intimate dinners.
After the devastating floods that went through the Barlow center, Sushi Kosho is now back as good as ever with their unique recipes and presentations. Yay!!
The food and service here are outstanding! In addition to miso soup which was a cut above the usual, we shared the red dragon roll, the house roll, and the 15 spice ribs and all were just absolutely delicious. This place is definitely a local gem. We're lucky to have this wonderful chef and restaurant in our community.
Tops the charts for fresh nigiri/sashimi in North Bay. Also tops the charts by being prepared in slow motion.
Dining for life. Great choice
Excellent sushi spot in the North Bay. Great toss sit at the counter watching the food prepared and chatting with the owner/chef behind the sushi bar. Melt-in-your mouth delicious sashimi and terrific hit foods and desserts as well. Definitely leave room for the panna cotta!!
This stunning new shop serves up some of the freshest and innovative interpretations of Japanese classics we have experienced. Miso soup is rich and savory without being too salty. Sashimi and crunch rolls are a delight. The only disappointment was the spicy edamame, flat and unexceptional. Our server was marginally knowledgeable but eager to please. Recced for a hit out of the box, and can't wait to visit when they are in full stride.
It was good but the wait staff could stand to be a bit more communicative.
Wonderful experience! The food was excellent, great service, and overall fantastic evening. We will absolutely be back.
One of the best Japanese/sushi restaurants in Sonoma County. Menu offers exciting alternatives to the garden variety sushi place. Servers are extremely knowledgeable around menu offerings plus sake.
Really excellent sushi, high grades for fish quality and freshness. They are utilizing unique approaches to things like wakame salad and their nigiri and rolls are superb.
Intimate venue in the Barlow. Relaxed creative Japanese food. Creative appetizers and solid sushi and sashimi.
Since I already posted a review elsewhere I will just say here that the food serving was half what you would normally get at a traditional Japanese Sushi restaurant. Definitely over priced for the size and quality of food. I would not recommend this place if you are a die hard Sushi fan as my family is.
The pieces of fish in nigiri were too small to taste the fish.
The rice was packed too tight.
As a result have no idea if the expensive fish was with ordering.
Other restaurants have equally good fish in much larger portions at the same price allowing you to actually taste how great it is.
Food was too saucy and not authentic Japanese.
Nice ambiance, passive service who didnt know anything about the fish they were serving. Pitty because the food and quality seemed good.
Been here several times since the reopening and have enjoyed it each time. Food quality is excellent and the staff very attentive. Highly recommend.
Great experience. Everything was delicious, although calamari was a bit fishy and chewy. Will def be coming again, sushi and garlic edamame was out of this world!!
This is just a lovely sushi place, service was wonderful and the food was fresh and delicious.
We wanted to love this place- its a great location. The prices were high and the portions were small. The service was not excellent (Although our waitress was friendly and pleasant) despite the place being almost empty. Overall, unremarkable and lackluster, especially given the prices.
The meal was exquisitely prepared by Chef Jake. The nigiri sushi was wonderful and the Panna Cotta and the Matcha cake were out of this world. Chef Jake presented a novel dish, combining bacon and Mochi that was unbelievable! We have eaten here before and we were very impressed by the new decor. Much more intimate and warm. Will definitely come back soon.
While the service was great, the food was bland and extremely overpriced.
Super delicious food, fresh fish, beautiful presentation. The interior design is lovely as well! The Barlow is also a fun place to shop and this restaurant is a great reason to come back again and again.
