I really enjoyed my last visit to the restaurant. It was the best sushi I had in a long time. I love their innovative drinks too. It is a very classy and fresh atmosphere. The waiters are very polite and focused on details. We will come back soon!

After working our way through a reservation mix-up, we were eventually seated. Our waiter was nice and helpful, but seemed to be overworked. (The recent hurricane has made it tough to gauge traffic I imagine, creating staffing challenges.) There were a couple unique menu items, but none that were terribly memorable. Good to be able to get sushi in Cabo... More

This is by far the best sushi restaurant in Los Cabos. The decor is beautiful and the wait-staff almost too attentive. The presentation of every dish is like looking at a piece of art.

Some of the freshest and unique sushi dishes I've had. Great views in a posh shopping area. On the expensive side for Cabo but also very upscale surroundings. Great for a special night out or celebration.

We checked this place out last night based on numerous recommendations and left hungry and disappointed. This sort of sushi place would feel more at home in Vegas, where decor, lounge music and false prestige (and high prices) trump actual food quality. They were out of most local fish, which was rather odd, but tried to sell us on imported... More

Everything about Nick-San restaurant was worth the visit, not at all your local corner sushi joint- it was some of the best sushi we have all ever eaten. The mix of two cultures really showed in the garnishes and the fish quality was superb!

Average sushi with above average prices! Nice location with great views of the Sea although noisy being above the hi-way. Used to be the only go-to place for sushi, but not anymore! Lots of other great places in San Jose with inventive dishes at 1/4 the price! Go for the view, not the food!

We enjoyed a dinner at Nick-San during our stay in Cabo. The ingredients were fresh and it was fun to explore the sushi rolls with a local twist. The dynamite scallops were so good and a huge serving considering it's an appetizer. We also really liked the Japengo roll and clear lobster roll which we ordered with crab. The service... More

During our week in Cabo we took the kids to Nick-San for dinner one night. The sushi was amazing as always, but probably some of the most expensive sushi we have had. Seems crazy to pay $20 for a roll in Cabo. the service was not as impressive as it normally is, because there was a soccer game (World Cup)... More

I've never considered myself a sushi snob, but after reading through the reviews here, I'm wondering if people eating here and giving it high ratings have actually had sushi before? ;) I'm especially curious how people can call it reasonable?? I'm not one to leave a bad review usually. But, I just can't ignore how awful our visit was. And,... More
