I highly recommend Swordfish, even if you are not a fan of sushi. I love their Mame Scallop lunch entrée and my husband loves their sashimi. GOOD FOOD & SERVICE!!

This is the best sushi ever by far. Every time we bring someone here for the first time the love it as much as us. Last night we went at 5pm and there was already a wait. Make sure you make reservations. For $65 (including tip) we had 1 appetizer, 1 small salad, 2 rolls, 2 large beers. Not cheap... More

Very nice serving of bento-box sushi accompanied by miso and salad. Extremely fresh. Large lunch serving - more than I chose to finish. My lunch-mate had a great looking vegetarian sushi dish - artistically presented - as nice looking as I've seen. Service was good. Decor is informal. Price is fair considering very high quality ingredients and artful presentation.

Called in for lunch the other day. I had the seafood soup and my husband had the grouper bites.Both were delicious. Our visit was enhanced by our server Peggy whose bubbly personality made her perfect for the job.

A job assignment put me in a hotel near Swordfish for the better part of a year, and I stumbled across this restaurant halfway through my assignment. After that first encounter, I ate here every week. It has wonderful sushi, incredible sea bass, delightful presentation, professional staff, and an immensely enjoyable atmosphere. I make it a point to visit whenever... More

If you like sushi - this is a wonderful Fox Valley restaurant. Consistent, inventive, fresh, and tasty sushi, every time. Nice wine list - great little bar with lots of drink specials. Staff is very attentive and friendly too. My wife and I visit at least once a month (thank you Groupon) - and love the Ocean's 13 dish. Everything... More

A groupon coupon took us to Swordfish for the first time. The food was superb. Service was beyond what I ever expected. Atmosphere was eloquent. Although it is pricey but definitely worth what you get. Would never expect a restaurant such as this one to be in Batavia.

Located in a outlot in Batavia near a strip mall, the location may seem a bit misleading...but don't be misled. This is a superb restaurant with Zagat rating. We dined here for the first time last week and were pleasantly surprised. The quality and presentation of food and service were all top notch. The ambiance is relaxing and the staff... More

This place has the most tasty California rolls of anywhere... the crab has some nice little extra seasoning or something and we just love it! Occasionally there is a groupon ($40.00 for the price of $20.00) and we always take advantage of it! We don't find it expensive because we don't order much beyond rolls... =0)

The food was very good. Especially some of the seasonal sushi rolls on the menu. Aside from the great food it is a very nice place and our waiter was very attentive. Only drawback is that it was a little expensive compared to other similar sushi restaurants we go to.
