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

There are several very good sushi places in this city of restaurants, and J-Pan is one of the best. In fact, I might put it at the top for a great sushi lunch - social or power type. The place has a clean, upscale panache - you feel good just walking in to this place. The wait staff are attentive... More

Came here with my wife for a quick little lunch the other day...I was very impressed with the décor AND the service (although the carpet looks like it could use an update). That aside, the lunch menu was perfect and perfectly priced. Our server was professional and the food was served quickly and tasted wonderful. I was especially impressed with... More

This great little Japanese restaurant has something for the whole family...hubby and I are able to get a bottle of sake and great sushi while my son can have a nice bento box. The kids meal is refreshingly unique: a protein, gyoza, rice, veggies and fruit. It's awesome that we can eat well while my son can have something that's... More

JPan has a cool interior (literally and figuratively--bring a jacket!) and always plays the mellowest of music. I'm a fan of the soba soup and salad and the tempura asparagus rolls. The service is always super nice, but not always the fastest. Definitely worth checking it out if you're around midtown SRQ looking for a Japanese fix.

first off the environment and music in that place is outstanding. The staff are always smiling and very friendly. When you sit ... first thing, you get a HOT wash cloth, really nice touch. Food wise, if you like it simple, their soup and salad combos is the best deal in town, it always is fresh, hot and delicious. Edamame... More
