Reservations are a must. Our waitress was excellent, attentive and friendly. For a table of 5, we had a few appetizers, 11 rolls of sushi and a tempura dish. Everything was very delicious!

Had an amazing experience at Yama sushi this evening. Intimate atmosphere with a modern flare. Brenn was amazing! She was very attentive and knowledgeable. If you like authentic sushi, I highly recommend this restaurant.
