This place is bright and spacious and has a great New York upscale vibe - music and all. The service is often slow, but will give them a little slack on that since the place is busy and almost all orders are custom-prepared.

Wonderful, creative and delicious food, friendly and attentive service and pleasant atmosphere. Except for the TVs. I would have given this restaurant 5 stars if not for the two giant screen televisions playing football games and distracting my eye from my companions. The other room may not have them, but I didn't pick the table. As for kids, the staff... More

We love sushi and have been working our way through some of the sushi restaurants in the Sarasota area. We had a delightful experience at J Pan. For a smaller restaurant in a strip center the interior is pleasant and clean. Our server and the others that stepped in to help her now and then were wonderful. The menu is... More

I'm not into sushi or sashimi but my companion thoroughly enjoyed her mixed sashimi lunch. My favorite is Bento Box and the sea-bass marinated in soy/ginger was exceptional; a nice size piece, cooked well, not too dry and not too wet; a small egg-roll, the best Japanese "orange" salad I've ever had, terrific tempura and (only tepid) rice. Took off... More

We went at 6 on a Friday evening, and there were four or five tables taken. We had excellent service and really interesting rolls. When we got up to leave, the place was completely packed with people waiting for tables. I hadn't noticed the room filling up because I had my back to it. I have to say for the... More

Excellent service and sushi! Had lunch there last week with some good friends to discuss business plans, and would highly recommend J Pan.

My fiance and I try to eat sushi pretty often, and that leads us to places we feel have the best quality fish, as well as great service. JPan has been a regular place for us for almost 2 years now. We have taken and referred friends and family because we've never had anything but awesome experiences at JPan. The... More
