Top-notch on all levels. Fresh, delicious seafood, expertly prepared. Crunch Roll was a standout. Inventive cocktails. Professional service. We dined indoors, but there are extensive outdoor seating areas as well. Expensive and worth every penny.

I told the host I had reservation, he bought me a two people table. I reserved 4 people. I don't know is is too early in the morning, but my reservation is noon!
Anyway, not a lot of customers in the morning, we often have to ask for refill for water. I was not very impress on a well known sushi restaurant will miss this kind of service. Overall, the food is quit expensive for what it is. I guess I was so looking forward and came with bit disappointment. Food is good, but not worth that much. Anyway, they got my birthday dessert! Thank you!

We had reservations and we're quickly seated upon arrival. However, we had to stare at our glasses of tap water for 20 minutes. Why? Regulars took their usual spots next to us after we had arrived. The restaurant staff provided prompt, attentive service to these repeat customers while we had to wait our turn. Best advice: go with someone who is a regular!

Celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary here: aside from forgetting to bring our tea, it was perfect. Dishes that can be ordered at many Japanese restaurants such as tempura and chicken kara-age are their deliciously best versions here. I had known the owner years ago; he came over to say hello and gave us each a glass of sake, which was much appreciated. Service was unobtrusive but excellent. We'll be back!

I have been to Sushi Ran with my husband for years and never feel disappointed. This is our favorite Japanese restaurant. The food is so delicious. The fish is always fresh. The service is great.
We like to sit at their patio. Love this place. We will keep going back.

We were seated at a table outside near the street as as people entered. It was a bit noisy but it was I choice to sit here. So no complaints. I'm just explaining my score for noise.

When making reservation, staff were very accommodating requests we made in person (after booking via OpenTable). Great table location (though not sure there’s a bad one)!

The best examples of the craft that goes into the food are the specialty rolls. Fish was very high quality across the board - the unique vegetables/herbs and curing of the fish create such unique (and delicious) flavor combinations.

The bussing staff were outstanding in keeping our table organized/clean and helping resolve some minor service hiccups we experienced. Would go again in a heartbeat!

I didnt care for the sushi. Not just the combinations in the rolls, but the fish itself. It was just kind of bland. I never had that experience of biting into something delicious, and didnt finish anything I ordered. My husband loved the soba noodles though. Nice service and ambiance. Wouldnt go back.

My friend and I had lunch on a Sunday. We chose to eat outside - more space and very pleasant. Although the daily menu suggested that a party of two stay no longer than 1 and 1/2 hrs., we went a little over with no rushing. Service is friendly and professional, servers provide information and are knowledgeable about the ingredients, and are ready to help with wine or sake suggestions. The food was outstanding. I would advise anyone coming to Sausalito on a Sunday to allow extra time to find parking - it was a challenge, especially since the end block of Caledonia is now closed to traffic.

Wonderful restaurant. Haven’t been on a date with my husband in a while and this place was recommended by a friend. The sushi was outstanding, a little pricier than what we are used to but we don’t mind paying a little more for great quality. Service was excellent too. Will go back again and we highly recommend.

After 25 years of fabulous meals, Sushi Ran continues to satisfy and amaze. They've got new dishes, including some noodle dishes perfect for outdoor dining in Sausalito. The outdoor set up is very comfortable, good heaters, comfortable furniture -- everything absolutely first class in all ways. Sushi continues to be the best quality with super delicious items you don't get anywhere else (umi masu [ocean trout from Tasmania!], zuke sake [white soy sauce cured fatty salmon from New Zealand]). Enjoy!
