    We visited Kisaku to celebrate our daughter’s 18th birthday. It was a special evening and the staff made every effort to honor our daughter on her transition to adulthood. We knew we could trust you with this occasion - thank you.

    Not as good as expected. Hot items are very limited. Sushi is good, but not great and a bit overpriced. Ambience is basic. Would not recommend for date night as the tables are very close together and not intimate at all. Our server was sweet and accommodating but service is a bit slow. Noise level is on the loud side. Music vol is too loud.

    I had sashimi combo which was excellent but I thought it was weird that I didn’t get any ginger.

    Everything was fine, but it was just fine… nothing more. We ordered 4 rolls and they were all good, just not great? Everything was just ok, I’ve had better sushi at many other restaurants. Lights above tables were a bit intense too? It was dark outside so the bright lights just felt a bit weird. Overall this was an ok place, just doesn’t stand out against comparable restaurants imo.

    My wife, daughter, and I wanted to get some Japanese food here in Seattle. Fortunately we chose the Kisaku for dinner and made a reservation. Arrived on time and were seated immediately. My wife and I had the multi course Omikase selection. Each course was delightful including the sushi course which included generous portions of very fresh sushi. Would recommend the Omikase option for the high quality and generous amounts of food. My daughter had a set sushi combo and it was deliscious as well.

    Waited more than 15 minutes to make an order. Another 15 min wait for the first appetizer. Another 15 min for the entree after we finished all the appetizers. The sake tastes like a mix of 80% real sake with 20% water. In terms of the price, almost triple of the market price.

    This service was as bad as it gets. We were forgotten about, did not get anything for 30+ minutes. We ordered the omakase but got a sushi combo then at the end of the meal were told we ordered the wrong omakase. No one checked on us or gave a damn. Nothing comp’d, just a half-hearted apology.

    Have been long time customers and this will be our last time eating at Kisaku. Service was awful. After we finished our appetizers, we waited at least 45 minutes for our sushi. We had to flag down our server to get more wine. He never checked on us. We had to stack our dirty dishes. Server never Informed us that there would be significant delay getting our food. It was a special occasion and our night was ruined. To boot, we spent so much money. Staff was clueless. So disappointing.

    Arrived 5 min early for our reservation, and had to wait 15 minutes for our table which was setup strangely in a back/side corner that felt cut off from the restaurant. Service was sporadic and we wondered if we’d been forgotten multiple times as our water glasses and drinks sat empty on the table. When the food finally came out, it wasn’t worth the wait. I eat a ton of sushi, this place was simply not up to par.

    Being told you have a time limit on your table as you first sit down is a real turnoff. Otherwise the experience would have been pretty good.

    Kisaku is not just a neighborhood sushi spot - it's an extraordinary sushi experience in one of Seattle's best neighbourhoods. Go for the omakase and definitely talk about what you like, and the chef has a range of glazes, additions, and elaborations which will make this your best sushi meal north of Los Angeles and east of Honolulu.
