    Not as good as it usually is. Food wait was a very long time. Restaurant didn't seem that busy, so maybe not enough chefs or help. Food was excellent when it arrived. Took over 30 minutes to get our cocktails. Very slow service, which is not usual for Sasa

    Nice ambience. Good vibes. Good service. Food generally over salty, sweet. Sushi fresh, but added favors undermine the freshness. Spicy Tuna, probaby the best roll.

    We enjoy dining earlier these days and when we arrived at Sasa at 4:45, we were quickly seated at the spacious, gorgeous, copper topped bar. The service here was exemplary; we never had to search for staff and our questions and needs were addressed thoroughly. The food is delicious and we had our fill sharing the Chirashi bowl and agedashi tofu. I have to that it wasn’t my favorite as the mushroom sauce over it was a bit cloying but that didn’t stop me from finishing it and everything else we ordered. We are looking forward to trying more of the raw fish selections next time as the fish is about the freshest you can get.

    We’ve had better experiences at past visits so we were surprised at how bad the service was and the food was inconsistent too. The hostess ignored us at first and it took 10min to get seated, then waited another 15 before the server came by to ask for drink orders. We ordered everything up front it took forever to get each plate out and it wasn’t crowded at all for tues at 730p. At 815 they asked if we wanted anything else (still waiting on 2 rolls and a sashimi dish) because the kitchen was closing. Most rolls had an overly sweet sauce dribbled all ove-not yummy. Won’t be going back for awhile, sadly.

    We arrived exactly on time for a 6:30 reservation. After checking in and waiting 25 minutes we inquired about our table, and were told that they were waiting to seat 7:00 reservations before we would be seated. There were several empty tables and so we asked if we could be seated at one of these but were told the tables (which had been empty since our arrival) had been assigned to other reservations and the hosts were unwilling to make any changes to the preset plan. We weren’t seated until 30 minutes after our reservation time. It was extremely disappointing that the seating process was such a poor experience and that there was no flexibility given the circumstances.

    Fabulous….very cool ambiance. Waiter was awesome and made great suggestions. Food was amazing….beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. My son and husband had the Steak which comes with a heated stone to finish the searing. Very cool and quite delicious. Comes with sautéed spinach. They prob could have used rice or something else to go with it but they were pretty happy. My other son had Blue Fin tuna rolls that were gorgeous and very generous in portion size. I had the braised short ribs which was amazing….tender, flavorful, beautifully presented and just the right portioning. We shared the most exquisite and silky creme brûlée for dessert. Look forward to going back and trying some other dishes.

    I love this place. I love the ambience. Beautiful decor. Great staff and everything we ordered was delicious. The food made me happy. It was all beautifully presented and fun. They printed Happy Anniversary on our menus and brought us each a glass of complimentary champagne to toast. Their cocktail menu is also fun and they have an extensive list of sake. We had a great night.
