The Owner of Yamagata used to own a similar place in NYC, and brings with him a NYC level of gourmet Japanese to Fort Lee. Crowded but worth the wait and the price.

Very high quality sushi. The very best in an area with many, many competing sushi restaurants. Extremely friendly staff, both at the sushi bar and waiting on tables. Get the omikase sashimi; it's more expensive but very much worth the splurge.

The place is great traditional Japanese sushi with Japanese chefs. Nothing fancy but in my opinion sushi is best in Jersey, at least best I eat.

Their sushi is always fresh. Other Japanese dishes are good, too. Limited seating area, so be there early. Lunch menu has variety, too. Parking can be a little problem even they have some parking spaces. Staffs were friendly and good for lunch and dinner.
