Sushi and Sashimi was extremely fresh and beautifully presented. The servers were attentive, but didn't hover. The room is beautifully decorated and restrooms very clean. I've always had exceptional meals at Tomodachi.

When you walk in, you see the oyster bar. We were seated in a booth by the window overlooking the sidewalk. Wait staff appeared impatient when we took too long to decide. Menu items on the pricey side. We ordered the Salmon Teriyaki Bento Box and Unagi Donburi. Then, it took forever to get the check. Probably not a place... More

Been here before. I liked it then. Two of us went for lunch today and we were not disappointed. We had the bento-lunch (miso soup, sushi and spicy tuna roll), along with a dragon roll. Although the bento and dragon roll were delicious, the miso was pretty watery and tasteless. Service was great again. We'll be back!

So happy I didn't order sushi. Server asked if I wanted something in its place..decided on chicken. She asked if I wanted to eat it there or take it... More

Had the worst ramen ever! Do not order this. Beware. If you like unjapanese designer sushi rolls. This unjapanese owned restaurant is probably for you.

My wife and I take this restaurant in occationally for lunch on a Saturday. We like to sit at the counter to watch the sushi chefs work their magic with their knives and the fish. They are engaging and extremely talentedl It is very fun to watch the cutting! Our favorite is the Bento Box. It's a lunch size sampler... More

We made a reservation for 12 to celebrate Grandmother's birthday. The service was excellent, very attentive to our needs and friendly to our young children. The food was very good, especially the rack of lamb and sushi dishes. They also provided a complimentary dessert, took a picture of the group and gave it to grandmother (framed). In addition they allowed... More

Bento box is delicious! The ambiance itself is a little dull for a Japanese restaurant, a little on the crowded side as the tables are Farley close to each other and if you don't mind sharing your conversation with complete strangers the food makes up for it.

Dinner great. Lunch Bento box great. Sashimi was crazy good. Atmospere light and peaceful. Our bill for 3 people was less than what we paid at the cheesecake factory for 2 people and we didn't wait for a table. Go with friends or go alone, this place is AMAZING & AUTHENTIC.
