We ate here with a party of five to celebrate my teenage son's birthday. When we arrived we were seated at a table at the edge of the dining room that made us feel like we were in the lobby. Some of us have had some experience with sushi and couple very little. From the time we first saw our... More

My husband and I were in town for a wedding and stopped in for a quick lunch. He ordered a sashimi platter and I had the bento box with Salmon. We were both blown away with the quality! The teriyaki salmon was sushi grade and delicious! My husband eats sushi frequently and felt like it just might have been the... More

This is a truly excellent sushi restaurant that strikes a perfect balance of Japanese steak house with some other Asian fusion classics available as well. Attention to details, extremely fresh product, and a relaxed vibe made Konomi a wonderful dining experience. All staff we encountered were delightful, kind, and professional. Worth stopping for if you're traveling through, and if you're... More

Japanese dining has been ruled by one big blue elephant in the Iowa City/Coralville area. And yes, you can get good quality Japanese in the middle of the Midwest - no, there isn't a sushi shack on every corner (right next to the Starbucks) typical of the costal metros, but the stuff you find in this area will surprise you....

This is tied for out favorite IA City sushi restaurant. Good fish and good service. A better selection of rolls would be nice. Current selection is short and heavy on the tempura.

This restaurant is very modern and sleek. It's nestled into an up and coming area in Coralville and is conveniently located near the interstate and next to hotels, an event center, and a brewery. I've had several lunches and dinners here and I've tried just about everything on the menu! The food and drinks are delicious! My favorite roll is... More

I ate here with a friend during a weekend away in August. We were staying at the Marriott next door. Great drinks and delicious food! Very reasonably priced for the area and for what you get. We will be planning a stop here during our next visit for sure!

The sushi at Konomi is consistently fresh and tasty. They have a wide selection of fresh, high quality sushi. The beef teriyaki was super tender. Wednesday night is discount night for some of the more popular items. Ten percent of their sales are donated to the help the survivors of the Japanese Earthquake and the Pacific Tsunami.

This was my first visit to the area and the restaurant had been recommended to me if I like sushi (which I do). I was seated quickly but the service left something to be desired. The restaurant was busy but not overly so. It just seemed like it took the wait person a long time to come around again. Fortunately,... More
