    They were out of the first 3 items that we wanted to order. Portion sizes were very small for the cost. Second time going and not as impressed as the first time. Family of four spent $180 and still left hungry. Staff was friendly and service was good. The wasabi was not included unless we asked for it, odd for sushi dishes.

    First time at this restaurant. Was warmly greeted and taken to our table. The specials were well explained as was the cocktail selections. The food was a real experience. Oysters were an unexpected experience. They were small but flavorful. The sauce was wonderful. Our food was all very good. The rolls were excellent as was the scallops and swordfish. We will go back again soon.

    I’ve been going for years. The remodel with the bar and additional room is beautiful. They have special bartenders for craft cocktails and the liquor selection is far greater. Best sushi in town has gone to a higher level! Would highly recommend it.

    Fiancé and I went for our 4 year anniversary dinner. We opted for the chef experience, which, while costly ($500 with drinks) is undeniably worth it. Our servers laid out of each course before us and provided detail on the pieces.

My husband and I shared the Truffle Amberjack , Citrus Roll, Hirame Usuzukuri, spicy tuna roll , spicy salmon roll, Yuzu Tuna roll, and some trout nigiri . The fish was fresh and so delicious ! Yes, We will definitely be back and bring some friends with us. Thank you for a lovely experience !

    A great experience but I would recommend going into the Omakase with a plan as we left the dishes to our waitress and she went several hundred dollars over the budget we set. The food is absolutely incredible and worth the experience.

    If you are searching for an authentic Japanezlse experience, this is your place. I lived many years in San Francisco and enjoyed many certified nihonjin suchi chefs offerings and Shimogamo is on par with those experiences. You will need a reservation and be prepared to spend some money if you really want the enitre experience from appetizers through desert. My wife and I had no alcohol but still managed to spend $300. It is worth it though. This is the only authentic experience O have found. Don't be fooled by chain restaurant sushi that serves 2nd rate fish dripping in sauces. Go to Shimogamo at least once and you will forever understand what good Japanese food really is.

    An amazing dining experience from beginning to end—each course brought together unique flavor combinations and ultra-high quality ingredients, including the best A5 wagyu we have ever had (and our group of 5 diners has tasted many)! The decadent Udon Carbonara and the creative flavors and textures of the Hojicha Panna Cotta were also memorable treats. The owner is always extremely kind, and all staff are highly knowledgeable, friendly and great fun. We look forward to our next meal here! Arigato gozaimasu!

    Shimogamo is the sushi gem of the Phoenix area. Family owned, with outstanding food and service. We go often, and last night had the Omakase for the first time. It's $140 a person, and worth every penny. After asking if we had any food allergies, preferences or requests, we had an amazing 7 course dinner, with everything from the premium sashimi assortment (including scallops and king crab) to the Truffle Amberjack and a new dish - the Wagyu Stew. I can't recommend Shimogamo highly enough. Service was impeccable, and they have a full bar if you would like cocktails. We usually do wine or sake. Just incredible - will return again soon, as we usually do!

    We dined Omakase for an end of the year splurge and it was a wonderful culinary experience. The service was excellent. Our server explained everything and asked if we had any preferences or allergies. She described each course in detail as it was served including the chef’s recommendation for sequencing each bite. Did I mention this was an amazing experience? It was!
