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.

    The House Sushi Roll was just delicious. It is made with eel, which is really tasty. The waitress was great.

    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.

    Open and airy restaurant location in The Barlow. Got a good corner table with my two friends. Service was great and food was delicious. You have to try the bacon-wrapped rice cakes: such a unique and delicious item. Was very full at the end of the night!

    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.

    I met friends i hadn’t seen in a very long time. We tried a variety of dishes and they were all exceptional. The seaweed salad was delicious, as well as the charred edemame and the mushroom salad. Double down dragon roll, salmon tacos and the machi-bon were all exceptional. Great wine and Saki list. We will come again and again. Oh, very friendly and professional servers. Thank you!

    I had the Combo Set, a bit of an expense but very much worth it: top quality food with a lovely miso soup to start, best Japanese I’ve had around here in many years! Good drinks selection too, and a friendly and efficient server. We ate inside but they also have a shaded patio, all right in The Barlow.

    Impromptu Valentine’s Day dinner with our son. It was beyond delicious. The wait staff was very welcoming and had great communication. They ended up giving us a bigger table since we had to wait a little which was awesome with a child who loves space! Definitely want to return.

    Booked a reservation weeks in advance stating it’s for outside only, called the week prior to confirm and was told of course it’s already listed with the reservation - when we showed up they said that they only have indoors and we’d have to wait at least half an hour until a table left if we wanted outdoors. We said how we booked a reservation and confirmed specific for this so they made us a table outside not even a part of the restaurant without any heaters during a cold night - which we had to wait a bit for too. One of our guests has terminal cancer so being inside during a pandemic would be even more dangerous and being freezing because we didn’t have a table anywhere near heaters wasn’t ideal either. The food took super long, valid for a busy night though, but also not everything was correct and it was clear we were forgotten about throughout the night. Also the menu prices listed online are different than what is on the menu in person. Overall not the best experience or value for the money we spent.

    We were at Sushi Kasha on a very quiet Tuesday evening. Had the restaurant been full, the noise level would have been quite noisy. The food was very good except that the hot dishes really cooled off too quickly. Do not know if warming plates or something else might have helped. Attentive staff.

    Our first visit, on a quiet Wednesday at 6:45 PM - made the reservation while next door at Regions and deciding to have dinner out. The food is delicious (I can recommend the Red Dragon Roll) and the sushi is reasonably priced. We will go back for sure.
