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.

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.

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!
