Delicious Sushi – Check out my full review on buenprovechola.blogspot
love this place! – the food here is so good. the sushi is fresh and amazing! The people who work here are friendly, helpful and attentive.
I have always been happy and so has my belly when leaving here!
Never go back again – We have not done the San Vicente joint but we have tried the one in the Marina. This place is a stone rip off. The room is cool and the help is OK. The fish has been precut some place else and they then have a untrained Sushi guy putting it together in the back. It was OK but nothing special and thought it was over priced as there are any number of Sushi places on the West Side that are better and often less expensive.
But mostly I objected to the fact that they added I think an 18% tip on the total bill including the tax. We were only two people. In all my years as a Restaurant worker, owner and patron I have never seen a tip added on for such a small party. Besides I never tip on the tax
But then I am jaded as we use to have Masa take care of us at Ginza Sushiko. Also the guys at the Hump.
I know if I can't say anything nice I shouldn't say anything at all but I just could not help myself, Frank Soracco
Delicious Sushi! – I absolutely loved this sushi place! I heard a lot of good things about this japanese restaurant and I decided to finally check it out tonight and I must say I was not disappointed at all. I ordered the Nozawa special on their menu and every single sushi was fresh, delicious and melted in my mouth. The price was quite reasonable for the amount of pieces they served me.
The staff was very professional and super friendly. The only negative thing I would say is that it was crowded and a bit loud but my friend who has been there several times said that usually it is not that busy,
Sushi Heaven – I have been trying to find the "best" sushi on the west side, and I have to look no further. I followed everyone's advice and ordered the Trust Me Light- and have never had fresher fish. But make sure to get the crab hand roll- to die for. The fish is served on warm, sweet sticky rice and the fish melts in your mouth. Parking is validated for first 2 hours and service was spot on. All in all, a wonderful dinner.
Overrated at best – After reading so many rave reviews my wife and I ventured a trip with my parents who were in town visiting. Overall - service was decent though they stopped explaining what we were being served after the first course of the Nozawa version of the "Trust" concept. Speaking of the "Trust" concept - it seems to be a commercialized version of the original intent of the 'omakase' tradition of putting yourself in the chef's hands. Instead of a custom designed menu from a sushi master built to order it has been reduced to a set menu with little change from day to day or even week to week.
While I did enjoy the unique combination of ponzu sauce with sushi that stylized many of our nori - over time it got a little old and did not effectively mask the sub-standard quality of the fish served. Additionally, my parents and wife noticed a fishy smell upon entering the restaurant.
Overall, I would rather go to nearby Sakura on Centinela which provides much higher quality product and larger selection though is slightly more expensive. However, if you are not big on raw fish and prefer sushi styles that are more about the sauce and the rice than what's served on top of it then sugarFISH is probably a better choice.
Another fantastic place – I've been enjoying sushi from Sushi Nozawa for years. sugarFISH is a fantastic concept and continues to improve. It's fantastic sushi in a great environment (love the San Vicente location) without the long waits of places with similar quality. I absolutely love it.
Nice job on the new look and thanks for adding the hand rolls.
We go every time we get to LA – This is my children and my favorite Sushi restaurant. They talk about it all the time. Very nice staff and decor. We have always had a great experience here. Love it!
