Pasta is pretty good here. Their service is great if you dine in house and the staff is super nice. We also did catering and the food was on point. Definitely recommend this spot if you need a Italian crave fixin!

Small, intimate restaurant. When we went, most of the tables were already reserved so we had to sit in a 'left-over' table. Sushi is very good, albeit a little pricey. One of the few Japanese restaurants that is owned and operated by a Japanese owner.

Delicious authentic Japanese sushi and food. Sushi counter for great nigiriis by Chef Nagai. Small space so better to make a reservation. Cozy with wonderful service. Very recommended!

No more Chef Yama san....Replaced by Mr Nagai san (ex-Tatsumi of Japan in Edgewater) March, 2015. Still very good. They might be getting their fish from the same place as Yama san. I was so happy that Mr Nagai san's sushi was so good!! Yamagata is still #1 sushi place in NJ. Food: 5 Service: 5 Decor: 4.5 ( their... More

This was take out. There are very little menus or information in this place. No handouts even about choice of food. Still using older restaurant info.

We’ve eaten here 3 times and were pleased with our meals each time. The sushi rolls were excellent with really good sushi rice (recently ate a place with only ok rice and boy did it make a difference). They are bit heavy handed with the spicy may stuff so it overwhelmed the flavors of the rolls. Next time we will... More

Great service but worst Japanese food I have eaten in tri state area Maybe I and wife plus 3 teens hit a bad day but went based on this sites recommendations and we had a bad experience. And that's 30 plus years in this area. Go for service but not for food.
