The restaurant atmosphere is casual, but high-end service. The establishment offers both menu dining and Omakase, definitely go with the Omakase. Every course brought to the table has its own unique flavor for the tester to savor. It's not the type of restaurant to get satiated, but a treat to your taste palate. You'll need a reservation and a budget... More

Perfect omakase with really fresh fish. The restaurant has a lot of strange rules - but worth it for the food and spot- on service.

The best sushi I've ever had outside of Japan. The fish was very fresh. The dishes were very creative. The service was excellent.

The food is amazing, each piece of sushi is very creative with flavors and ingredients. There was a portobello mushroom sushi with shiitake mushrooms, and a sweet shrimp with marinated shrimp. Very tasty!

This was our third visit to Sushi Sasabune. Form the first of several Omakase courses to the last, our experience was brilliant. The abalone course together with a great sake made this the best meal we have ever had. Words cannot describe how magnificently prepared every piece of sushi was. If you are a genuine fan of well-prepared and beautifully... More

Best Sushi Ever! Go with Chef's special and you can tell likes/dislikes, etc. The fish just melts in your mouth. Deliciously prepared and presented!

If one could rate higher than 5 this place deserves it! Wow! "Trust me" is the motto and they don't disappoint. Each plate of 12 courses of carefully sourced and thought out by the chef. Bring your Japanese for some added respect or learning the way! Hardcore sushi joints are tough to find in the states and this place is... More

Had a customer make reservations for 5 of us here and he told me they bring out whatever they feel like. It's a pre fix menu consisting of multiple courses of different types of sushi. All the items were very unique and so tasty, along with the real wasabi they give you and the ginger was to die for. No... More

A+ all the way! Our omakase Saturday night dinner was absolutely the best experience! Everything was excellent --- especially the sashimi with fish from New Zealand. We sat at the sushi counter, got superb service! Brought a Dom which they put in a bucket of ice --- worth it for $25 corkage fee. $300 for a dinner for two but... More
