The food presentation on this restaurant was atrocious, one the most important attributes of the Japanese cuisine. The lack of care, like the thickness of the sashimi, in all our dishes was a disappointment.

The sushi is as good as any I have had in California or Hawaii. The calamari is some of the best I have ever had - done in tempura batter and very tender. Besides Japanese food, they also have Chinese and Thai. The Lemon Grass soup is wonderful as are the Drunken Noodles. If you really like spicy, their heat levels go from 1 to 10 and you can tell them what you want but I tried 3 and it was as spicy as I would want.

Everything was wonderful! Our server spaced out our courses so we weren’t overloaded with everything at once (we had a LOT of food). The staff was very personable and pleasant. The special cocktails were delicious! The food was amazing! We had a little bit of everything and it was all perfectly made.

Reservation was at 6:30, by 7:15 we had still not had a waitress come to the table, so we left. Have been there before and the food is good, hopefully this was just a bad night.

The sushi was fine. It was fresh but nothing extraordinary. Other places give bigger pieces and allow for some more “exotic” types of fish without a “premium” upcharge. They consider eel and octopus “premium” on a chef’s choice sushi dinner. The service was fine in that the wait staff was attentive but had we gotten there 30 minutes later it would have been a problem. They fell behind and other tables were not able to be served in timely matter, and drink glasses weren’t even available. We saw some folks leave after time not being waited on. We had a $10 coupon which at least made it worth it. Great kids platter choices too. Very friendly and nice staff.

We have been here many times for both eat in and take out. It has always been good until this visit. The service was boyond terrible. We did not receive our cocktails until after our food arrived. Three of four of us had food that was ice cold. It was such a terrible experience with no apology or any reaction from our server. I am not sure when I will be going back.

The food was amazing like the other two times we've been but this time celebrating our anniversary was different from a couple years ago. On the reservation I stated it was our anniversary but no one said anything about it. Our waitress seemed distracted and seemed like we were bothering her. This wouldn't stop us from being back.

Food was very tasty, good quality sushi rolls that were generous in size. Service however was amateur hour in action. Staff were not aware of who was covering what tables and I was shocked at how bad the service was. Looked like a better environment all around in the larger main dining area, food was worthy of a return visit, but probably not going to happen due to the inexperienced wait staff

It was a great experience, the food was awesome the level of noise was a bit high but it did not deter the ambiance. The service however has gone a bit down and the very personal touch that Saki Hana was known about is kind of gone. One of the things that has always impressed me by the service in Sake Hana was their knowledge about their foot and a very keen and pleasant experience that the interaction with the service make you feel. it seems like that element of keenness is not there any more. It seems like the specialty of the atmosphere differentiating Sake Hana from the rest has been lost and now is only the part of the pack. Shame I really loved this restaurant.

It was Christmas Day when we first dined at Sake Hana. They were extremely busy - who knew that many people eat out on Christmas Day?! Nevertheless, the service was a bit slower than I expect that it would be normally - aside from that, the service was excellent. The food was terrific and I was impressed with the options available for kids and adults who don’t care for sushi. We will return - soon!

It took 20 minutes before a waiter came to our table. The restaurant was getting empty but we didn’t get our food yet and the bus boy started to vacuum. I don’t think we needed to hear a vacuum running while we were eating.
