Best sushi in Arcata. What more can i say? I have frequented every sushi place in town for years and this is my favourite. After every meal here I think to myself: I should eat here once a week at least. The staff is helpful, friendly, and accommodating. The place is always clean, the fish fresh, and the menu is...

Love that's it's a smaller restaurant you don't have to wait as long to get served. Excellent oysters. Fabulous special sushi rolls.

Great sushi in Humboldt County, possibly even the best I have had! Casual atmosphere, but elegant and attentive service. They are constantly heating up the pot of complimentary Genmai tea, bringing you more ginger and wasabi...excellent service.

We have been to The Sushi Spot a number of times and it is always consistently good. It is one of a few very good sushi Restaurants in Arcata and a local favorite. They know what they are doing and the ingredients are always fresh and full of flavor. Recommended.x

The Sushi Spot is a great choice for lunch or dinner. The Arcata restaurant is located on the plaza downtown and despite other competitive sushi restaurants nearby, they always seem to be busy. The menu is extensive, lots of options. The rolls are fresh and delicious. Great sake too! Very friendly, helpful waitstaff.

MCKINLEYVILLE branch: It's hard to taste one's dinner when the noise from too loud music and too loud compensating conversation bombard the senses. That's a shame too, because the presentation is beautiful. Also the hot food kitchen does not communicate with the sushi chefs. The three of us received our entrees at three different times. The waitstaff were lovely and... More

Sushi Spot is a small restaurant, so when it is busy it can be hard to get in (although they now have a second restaurant on Central Ave. in McKinleyville). They have a wide selection of sushi, rolls and other good stuff. Excellent appetizers and some of the tastiest and most creative rolls in the Humboldt Bay area.
