Absolutely wonderful, authentic experience at Tomo! The sushi was delicious, atmosphere was cozy and the service was excellent. I'm sorry I havent found it sooner! There is a chef's tasting at a wonderfully affordable price!

Sashimi well prepared and always tastes fresh. Shoyu ramen a winner and available vegetarian. Good variety of vegetarian rolls. We have been here many times since they opened and hope to return many more times. Best to go on a non-weekend since word is out about the high quality of food, kind service, and atmosphere where you can have a conversation.

I had the Triple Salmon and ramen. The Triple Salmon was unique and creative. The ramen was warm and delicious - perfect on cold night!

What a great gem!! We tried a variety of items from the menu including tuna tataki sashimi, nigiri, gyoya and a lot of different rolls. All were beautifully presented and delicious. Tried hako roll with salmon eel strawberry and avocado for the first time ever. It was fresh bright and nicely presented. One had chicken ramen which had a flavorful broth and good noodles. Ended dinner with strawberry mochi which had fresh strawberries in the mochi. Server Alex was knowledgeable, pleasant and attentive. Recommend reservation. Went for a Sat 5pm and the restaurant was completely full by 6pm. Outstanding dinner, great value and a nice surprise. Will definitely go again.

Came here on a Friday night with a reservation at 7. Restaurant became more crowded as the night went on but food came out quickly and it’s the perfect spot for a more intimate dinner

Old City is so fortunate to have this fantastic restaurant! The owner is a master sushi chef combining the most delicious elements to create works of art that are delicious! They serve only the highest end, freshest ingredients. We took friends there tonight from the main line who told us it was the first time they’ve had this high quality offering since spending time in Japan! Be sure to order the ramen as well. Their broth, savory and addictive, is genius! I can’t think of a more appealing “comfort” food as the weather gets chilly.

Loved that they had vegetarian/vegan sushi that was different than your typical cucumber and asparagus rolls. The ramen was good and staff was friendly.

We had Sushi(Toro, Uni, Salmon ,Whit tuna and Yellowtail) was so fresh and Tonkatsu Ramen(Soup) was deep. You can tell its healthy. The both of them Delicious😋 I am glad to found them. It will be our new Sushi and Ramen spot! Lastly, Our server was Alex tonight. He was so kind and sweet. We had a lovely dinner at Tomo Sushi and Ramen.

We arrived precisely at our reservation time and were told there was no table. We were offered two seats at the bar that weren’t even together. I had specifically booked a standard table. We were told they had overbooked, but I believe they gave our table to a walk in. It was first Friday. The sushi is mediocre- we have been there before. We went to Tuna Bar, two blocks away, where, on hearing our story, they found us a table. And the sushi is superb there.
