I’ve heard for years that Sushi Ran has the best sushi in Marin. They were right! The atmosphere is casual and well appointed. The server was knowledgeable and attentive. Not as expensive as I feared. Every reason to go back!

Superb lunch as always. We often stop here on the way back from SF. The food is always excellent. Had 10 pieces of Sashimi, with Soup, Seaweed salad and oyster roll as well a roll that was wrapped in cucumber. Recommend all. Enjoyed several sparking Lemmon drinks as well.

I have been going to Sushi Ran for special occasions for years and this time found it to be a bit underwhelming. For the price ($11 for one piece of nigiri, $19 for one roll) it should be exceptional and this time the fish was just okay.

When you finish the two meals we each had and then say (semi seriously) let's reorder the same - now - you know you are in a "good place".

Delicious!! It’s a bit pricy, but well worth the justifiable price tag! Everything we ordered was absolutely superb. This is probably my new favorite Japanese restaurant in the Bay Area. I highly recommend it. Note: it’s very quiet on a Thursday between 5:30-7:15.

Sushi Ran continues to maintain the highest levels of food quality and service. Owner, Yoshi, is ever-present greeting guests and visiting table side. Yoshi's presence seems to be key to the smooth running, relaxed yet professional atmosphere and over the years we have noticed that there is very little turnover of staff. Servers, hosts, kitchen staff and other team members tend to stay on board with pride and enthusiasm, knowledge and professionalism. We always leave feeling we got real value for money spent.

We've eaten here occasionally for 20 years, used to love the food, something isn't working here anymore, is it that their owner is now at their new resturant and not watching quality here in Sausalito?

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend so we came with a reasonably high expectation. The food was good but not outstanding - certainly did not match up to their price tags. The fish was reasonably fresh, but we have had better at other restaurants. The dessert was excellent and the sampler offered a good selection. The waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. However, the guy who showed us to our table insisted that we sit at the table next to the door, but we were only the second party to arrive for dinner that day (five minutes before our reservation time) and almost the entire restaurant was empty. Don't know what we had done to offend him to deserve such treatment...

Lukewarm soup and lukewarm vegetable entrees. The room felt line a greenhouse, very humid, extraordinarily slow service, and a very long sake list that had us trying the one suggested by the waitress. It was almost undrinkable. I really wanted to live this place. Sadly I’ll never go back

I've been going to Sushi Ran for years, however, over the last few visits, I felt like the food had slipped a bit. This was my first time back in a few years. The food was terrific and overall, the menu was much more affordable than I remember - relative to other high-end restaurants in Marin. I'm looking forward to returning soon. The Ahi Poke roll, the dumplings, and the sake selection are standouts. Skip the halibut entree; it was overdone, although the combination of flavors was good.
