I have dined at Geisha several times and always have a great experience. First of all, it's in a great location.. Capitola Village. Beautiful ocean views and a sweet beach front town. I live up the street, so it's easy and I recommend parking up out of the village and walking down to dinner. The service is always pleasant and... More

My boyfriend and I spent 3 days in Capitola and decided to give this restaurant a try - we loved the concept of sustainable fish and we love sushi. We sat at the sushi bar - the server and sushi chefs were polite and accommodating. The fish was outstanding! Salmon was on the specials menu for the evening and we... More

This was a very quiet restaurant while the other beach places were jammed. The food was good. The service was good, just an odd choice of cuisine for a sun and sand kind of town. Pink Cherry blossoms and pink walls are out of place when you are seated 50 feet from the surf.

My friend and I used a groupon to try this newer sustainable sushi spot in Capitola. We went right when they opened on a weekday, so I'm not sure how operations work when it's really busy, but here it goes: First, water and complimentary miso soup was brought immediately to our table. Nice touch. The miso was delicious with freshly... More

Service here is AWFUL. We finally walked out after 1 1/2 hours. We had only received our nigiri. We were still waiting on rolls when I finally threw in the towel and left. I tried speaking to our waitress (who is also the owner). The sushi chef jumped in and said she was the only one working and she was... More

We used to frequent a couple different sushi restaurants throughout Santa Cruz County until we discovered Geisha sushi in the Capitola Village. Excellenct sustainable sushi and other delicious menu options. We are vegetarian and there are so many choices we could go there every night for a month and not get the same dish. The sushi is fresh and there... More

Geisha is wonderful and it's really nice to go to a sustainable sushi restaurant. Our dinner was tasty and the staff is really friendly and enthusiastic.

We could see the sunset from our table! Sustainable fish in the excellent sushi here. They also have vegetarian and vegan. A special sushi house with excellent food and service!

We've walked by this place a bunch of times and finally decided to have dinner here and I'm glad we did. The restaurant has great views since its on the 2nd floor and you can see the ocean. The servers all wear Kimono's tops which is cool. They have some interesting rolls. The night we were there they had a... More

We hit Geisha at 8pm on a Friday night with a party of nine. The restaraunt was busy but likely we were seated within 10 minutes. As others have noted this restaurant only serves sustainable fish. No Hamachi or Unagi however the have sustainable substitutes for both of these. Sayuri (Little Lily) Unfiltered Sake - 3 to 4 stars depending... More
