First and foremost the food was incredible. When we got there, the background music was a little too loud for every day conversation. The service was great and we had a fantastic time

Food and service is always great. Conversation isn't easy as the atmosphere is very loud.
Not any more pricey than other sushi restaurants in the area, but much better food. 9 of us had dinner including beer, and the tab was ~$300.00.

Loved this place! Amazing list of specialty rolls and the Red Dragon was the best I’ve ever had. However, the garlic edamame was the real show stopper! So delicious that I will be back every time I’m in the area!

Having been here several times, we know the food is good. Love the I love you roll! My wife has been enjoying their soups and sushi bowls. This place isn’t cheap, but I don’t think it’s a bad value. Biggest issue of the night: they ran out of booze and couldn’t make any cocktails. And this was at 7pm. I reminded two waiters that there is a BevMo liquor store about 100 yards away, but they just smiled and said we know. Seriously, no liquor except beer and sushi?

This was our third or 4th time to dine here. The food didn't seem to be as fresh as in previous visits. They also seemed to be understaffed. Perhaps it was just a bad day. We really like the place and we think it is the best Sushi place in Gilroy/Hollister, and we will dine there again.

We live in Hollister and only have two Sushi restaurants, one of them is terrible. So finding a sushi place we like is a good find, Omakase is a great find and worth the drive to Gilroy

Our 5 year old grandson chose Sushi Omakase for his birthday meal out. The kids California roll is really cute. They always make a creature design with the cut roll. The kids love it. Their sushi is always fresh and delicious; we're rather choosy since we've had the real thing in Japan. The adults can always find something they would like even if they don't care for sushi; noodle bowls, teriyaki, tempura and non-raw rolls. We've never had anything that wasn't delicious here. That said we did have one big problem when we arrived. They didn't have a reservation shown for us even though I had my reservation number from Open Table. I believe Open Table messed up somehow. The restaurant worked with us and we only had to wait about 20 minutes, which during prime dining time is great.

I drive from out of town to come to this place. Been the only sushi place I go to. Until this last experience which is my last time there! I get there and they dont have my reservation, even though I showed them my copy, they told me if I wait half hour I would get seated and get a free appetizer? Are you kidding?! Will not be returning

This restaurant does not check us in and consequently we do not earn points. Each time we have gone, we have asked them to be sure and confirm we showed up for our reservation and nada. They do not follow through.

We were actually unable to eat here this night. We arrived 5 minutes prior to our reservation and there were many people waiting outside. When I went in it took the hostess 10 mins to even acknowledge me. Once she did she said it was going to be at least 20 more minutes (now almost 30 minutes after my reservation time). There were at least 5-6 tables that had not been cleaned and the restaurant was clearly under staffed. I love this place but that was a huge disappointment. We needed up leaving without eating because it was taking too long. We intentionally had made reservations because we were on kinda a tight schedule.

Lots of new staff, not familiar with their jobs. Sushi was falling apart, not well made. Hand roll had no sauce. We were there for a birthday celebration and was not good. The service was very slow, food presentation was poorly put together. Not the dining experience we've had in the past.

Food was great as always, just one minor issue. The last 3-4 times we have eaten at Omakase the potsticker sauce as been too spicy for my wife to eat, used to be one of her favorite things......

We made an Open Table reservation for 6:30 and upon arrival there was a line waiting to be seated. When I told them I made a reservation through Open Table, they told me it wasn't working on their side. We waited anyway because the food looked fabulous! And, it was! Although the system wasn't working, the food was great, and even with the crowd, the service was very good too! I would definitely call next time for a reservation.

We have been here several times, usually with large groups. The service has been great, even when very busy, and we appreciate that they will do separate checks. The food has been consistently good, and they have a few uncommon things like fresh real wasabi and kama (collar) on the menu. The acoustics are very live, so it is a noisy place

Sushi was quite possibly the worst we've ever had: BOTH the spicy tuna roll and spicy scallops roll were bland.

Rolls were approximately 1 centimeter in thickness - skimpy/cheap cuts of sushi roll.
If we had put all 6 pieces together, it would have been less than 4"of sushi roll.

Sake tasting was OK.

Kids scattered everywhere, no way to escape the noise. Also, I enjoy ultimate fighting, but blood spatter & dinner don't necessarily mix. On the upside, friendly servers and good food. I'll have to try again on off-hours.

We had a pleasant lunch at Sushi Omakase. The service was friendly. The sushi combinations were interesting. The fish was fresh. Unfortunately, the rice was somewhat overcooked and a bit sweet for our taste. I prefer the slight tang of rice vinegar in the rice to bring out the fish flavors. The location is good, so if I feel in the mood for sushi when visiting the outlet stores, I would definitely return.
