Spotty service

The food here is good but sometimes the service can be spotty. Lunch hour is pretty consistent but going there for dinner or late night you can expect to wait awhile for them to come and they will forget some of your items.

I have eaten a lot of sushi in Calgary and it is not always that great. Soggy, rubbery, bland, poor quality- I've had it all. Sakana Grill is none of these things. I have been here frequently over the past few years and each time I am blown away. I am hesitant to write a restaurant review as food is... More

Miso and tempura are blah but the sashimi was fresh and nicely sized. Service is a little cold at times.

First we had trouble finding parking in downtown. We called Sakana Grill to let them know that we would be late and they neglected to tell us that they actually have free underground parking which we discovered as we walked up to the restaurant. When we entered the place we mentioned to them that they could've told us about the... More

Lunch with my colleagues. Food was alright and reasonable price but staffs were not nice. I prefer to see chef put the glove on when making sushi.

Have visited this resturant countless times and remains one of the better sushi places in the city. They have good quality and a great variety with reasonable prices. Parking is a little of a hassle but worth it

I've been here countless times over the past year and I've been happy everytime. The price is fair and the service is great! The servers are friendly and always pay attention to my needs. The food is really good as well especially the red+black ninja roll and the rainbow roll! I recommend those!
