Esoji at their new digs on Iron Springs Road

We were 2 couples and received a warm welcome. The "Teppan" (griddle-like) tables were not in operation yet and we were seated in the main dining room. The decoration is modern and pleasant. I ordered the soft-shelled crabs and the Chilean Sea Bass. Preparation was first-rate and both dishes were... read more

Went there for the first time and had heard good things about it. Maybe not so much. The dishes were either very salty or very bland. The tempura was somewhat on the mushy side and whatever they covered was very bland. The miso soup was like a cup of brine as well as the yaki sobi. Will say the service... More

Went here with a friend a week ago. Nice, subdued interior in the Japanese tradition. Their new address is: 1355 Iron Springs Rd. It was not being used at the time, but they have a room with several "Benihana"-like tables set up for cooking shows. So it's possible they'll be doing that soon. It is very good food, though it...

The food here is outstanding. It's a good thing it is. Because the service is some of the worst I've experienced. They are actually at a new location on iron Springs Road now about 2 miles from the one listed here. The new location is beautiful. I'd recommend a visit if you have a taste for sushi. Just budget about... More

We have been here many times over the past several years and have always been pleased with the food....actually looked forward to it. We have to travel about 70 miles to get here, so we would stop in every time in the area. Well after today's lunch, we will never go back. Both my husband and I have been ill... More

I have been to a lot of sushi restaurants so I know what to expect. There is a lot of hit and miss places. While there are only 2 in the town of Prescott your limited. Just like the other it is hit and miss here. The other place has awesome food but, poor service or down right rude. Esoji... More

Nice to have a friendly and pleasant atmosphere for sushi near downtown Prescott. One of my choices for 'first dates'!

Best sushi I've had in town! Its a little pricey, but I think its worth it. The staff is always friendly, and they have great service.

Fresh fish that's it. Service was terrible we had to ask for everything twice. The dragon roll was so big and loose impossible to eat. The nigiri was good fish was fresh but Fujiyama preps there food way better. Hopefully it was an off day for Them. Would have gone to Fujiyama but it isn't open Mondays.

Great food...excellent preparation and presentation. Wonderful service and nice atmosphere. I will eat here again and again. We have about 5 rolls and two carafes of suki plus a few extra and the price for the four of us was only $100.00. Great value.
