This restaurant is a local favorite. They have a very dedicated customer base. The food seems well received by the regular crowd. The staff are young and seem eager to please. However, we arrived early and were taken to a table in the back. We had to ask to be moved. The smell of Pine Sol was so strong that... More

I was recommended this restaurant by a friend. Due to the crowds and cost, I usually go for lunch only. Well if you want lunch this one is ONLY open Friday Saturday and Sunday. But I have to tell you it was absolutely worth the wait until Friday.! I've been a local sushi goer for years and years. I've had... More

My husband and I love coming here. The menu has so many options. My 2 year old loves the tofu nuggets. The fish is always fresh and all the apps and salads we've tried so far are delicious. The only downside is that they're not open daily for lunch.

I love Jizake! We go at least once a month. This is on the higher end for sushi in Orange County but so worth it. You get what you pay for! The crispy rice is my favorite. Best shishito peppers I've had. If you prefer the cooked route, the butter fish is amazing. If you have a big group, get... More

Jizake brings the authentic flavors of Japan to this coastal community in a big way — everything on the menu is delicious! Because this neighborhood gem is both small and popular with couples and families... be prepared to wait — the good news is if you do, you'll be glad you did.

They sure know how to make sushi in the place. The area is small and compact, but the food is worth the inconvenience of being in such confined place. They can use some maintenance in their outside area.

First started going to Jizake's 4-5 yrs ago, definitely one of the best if not THE BEST sushi restaurant in South OC. Only issue is EVERYONE is aware and sometimes the wait can be a tad bit longer than you would prefer. Nonetheless, great service, fun atmosphere, outstanding sushi! Wish they would bring back the honorary saki bottles (certain customers... More
