Hiro's was an innovative sushi cuisine with a special soy sauce that had a hint of smoke. As a local, I am bummed that they are not longer part of our downtown scene.

Their offerings are still good. The food is good, but not as good as it used to be in the beginning when they first opened. Not sure why the service is not as good as when they first opened. You will not be disappointed if you have never been here before, but for us it is a different perspective.

Nice location and decent sushi. Crummy wine list for being in wine country. And service was rocky and amateurish.

In keeping with my child friendly appreciation, they hit it spot on for our grandson. He had Fried Soft Shell Crab off the appetizer menu, Miso Soup, rice and apple juice and ate almost everything on his plate. My wife had the Teriyaki Salmon and Vegetable Tempura and I had Beef Teriyaki and Mixed Tempura. We ordered a roll to... More

Maybe it's not fair to compare, but I remembered that I had not reviewed this restaurant that I visited a week ago before I began my trip to Japan. Other than some very high end sushi places in the Bay Area, there is simply no comparison between Japanese and US sushi. Admittedly, I my wife, daughter, and I went to... More

The "3-color Rice" item on the lunch menu is my favorite. I always order it b/c it is so good and so unusual. This selection comes in a long rectangular box, divided equally into 3 squares with some rice in each square. In one square is deliciously seasoned vegetable tempura; in a second square is amazing poke (alone worth the... More

This was one of the original great sushi restaurants in Petaluma, and it used to be fantastic. Recently, they have not done so well with sushi quality and service. I hope they return to their original greatness.

The atmosphere was casual but cool with its old hardwood floors and exposed brick with high ceilings. The food was very, very good. My husband had cigar spring roll appetizer and I had seaweed salad. I had the Baja California roll and he had bento box. We had chocolate wontons for dessert. Everything was delicious, and the owner came to... More

I came here on a quiet Monday night. I was given to expect high quality food and I received exactly that. I ordered the sushi and sashimi entree and asked for no mackerel and received a lovely platter of sparking fresh, high quality food. The service was good. My server went above and beyond. I will be back!!

We sat at the bar and watched the owner prepare sushi for everyone but my wife and I. After ordering with the waiter we waited 90 minutes before deciding to leave. It was ridiculous. This was not our first time time at this establishment and we did not have this problem before, but somewhere along the line disorganization has crept... More
