I went there twice within a month & both times I absolutely loved it! The pink lady roll was so delicious as was their Taro French fry appetizer with aioli sauce! The restaurant is very quaint so definitely more of an intimate place to dine but absolutely worth the trip!! Plus they serve my favorite cupcake Chardonnay:) A must try... More

We went early in the evening on a Saturday. Had a short wait to be seated in the dining room. The small bar probably sat about ten diners and was already full. Service was expedient and Friendly. The food was excellent! Well worth the wait and price. Looking forward to my next visit.

Had originally intended to eat in but the line up was so long we decided to do take out. Was really hared to decide what to have since the selection is wide. Some of the best sushi I have ever had...fresh, yummy. Only problem was that we asked for extra wasabi (which we got) but we should have asked for... More

great sushi, but order the green mussels first...they take awhile. Lots of rolls to choose from, excellent, fresh fish!

I love to eat at Matsuri. Nice staff, very generous, good selection. The pink lady is good. Located near St. Paul's park.

Best sushi in the Bay Area. Small and hidden. The staff is great and the chef is generous. So many great dishes and types. Love the pink lady, gobo and more. Once a week we get to eat here. Love every bite.

The pink lady roll is my fave!! Miso soup is great too! Tiny inside, but fast and very friendly service. Food is always consistent. Between the two sushi places in town, I will always choose here... I'd even come here from out of town.

We have been here a number of times, me for the sushi and my wife for the dinner combos. Both are always good. They have a couple of tables outside if you have your dog with you. They also do take-out. The prices are good too.

Downtown Benicia during lunch hour is going to be busy if you want to eat something good. As a matter of fact I have watched the restaurants on First street become sequentially busy with the best restaurants first, with people walking over to the second, third best and so on. (I live three blocks away and spend way too much... More
