This place is definitely one of the best sushi I've ever had. It was quite pricey, but given the high quality of fish, I think it's definitely worth it. The wait can be long, so I usually come right when they open for lunch. I...More

If you like great sushi - go here. Get the Nozawa tasting menu - delicious. This is just a sushi restaurant. Every course was great. No reservations - be ready for a wait

At Sugarfish you will not find salads or fancy appetizers or dragon rolls or mayonaisse based sauces.. What they offer is fantastic unadorned sushi and sashimi competently served and explained by an excellently trained wait staff.

There was good parking in a structure across the street and a nice courtyard to wait for your table. The four of us were seated within 10 minutes. It is a trendy way of ordering and serving Japanese food. There is no sushi bar but...More
