Mediocre in every aspect. Nakazawa is no longer behind the sushi bar which was a disappointment.

This is next level - don’t even bother coming unless you’re a serious sushi lover. Mesmerizing experience. Flawless service. Superb wine list. Need I even comment on the fish itself? There are no words. Looking forward to our next visit.

The best sushi you will ever be so fortunate to enjoy. There are none better. Not in Tokyo, not in NYC, not in SF and not in Seattle. This omakase is superlative in every way imaginable. Enjoy.

We sat at the sushi bar for the omakaze. Excellent experience. All the staff members were friendly, welcoming, knowledgable. Best sushi I have ever had. Super fresh ingredients prepared creatively by the head chef.

I'm blown away by the flavors and the professionalism. I have been to some really great restaurants in Japan but I gotta say this is even better than the ones in Japan, the friend that went to Sushi Nakazawa with me has been over 20 times to Japan an agrees on this opinion.

Will keep coming back!

Simply put - the best dinner I've ever had. From the moment we walked in, it felt special. Each piece of sushi was an orchestra of flavor and perfect in its own rite. Amazing. Could not have dreamed of a better meal, experience, or ambience. Truly memorable.

Our Omakase dinner st Sushi Nakazawa was the best meal I’ve ever had in my life! What an incredible experience it was to sit at the sushi bar and watch the chefs at work! We have not stopped talking about our dinner to everyone we know loves sushi. We flew all the way from LA to eat at Sushi Nakazawa and it surpassed all expectations! We will be back!!

Fantastic quality sushi. The best tamago (egg) -- there's nothing like this anywhere else except for maybe at Jiro's. One warning though: the sushi chef who is Nakazawa-san's right-hand man told us he's moving to Washington DC to open up their new location there. He said he'd be there through the end of January 2018, so right now it's a new guy (could be an okay or bad thing).
