My husband and I went once with friends and we will definitely be back. The food and service were excellent. It's a bit pricey but well worth the money.
Went when during the week and it was almost empty. So our service was just fine. The sushi rolls were priced fair and really tasty. We really enjoyed it and would go back again. Still a little nerves about service next time given all the other comments, but like I said we had a very good meal this time.
Had ate at this restaurant before and I got to admit..it's nothing special; it's actually somewhat cluttered with tables being so close together and this big fish tank in the middle, which I got to admit somewhat cool, but would rather have more space available from other table than to see the fish. Although, my last experience was a bit... More
Some of the worst service I have had in Iowa City in a long time and I eat out often. Week night, not busy. Didn't get 3 things we ordered, slow to check back--really surprised they can survive if this is indicative. Maybe the sushi bar is the place to sit but no one was even sitting there--I guess I...

My daughter and I had a wonderful meal of sushi and wine. I'm from Los Angeles where sushi restaurants are everywhere. I wasn't sure what to expect in Iowa City but I was happily surprised! The yellowtail was fresh and perfectly presented and the California Roll was excellent. Nice ambiance! Can't wait to go back!

We ordered and the original order came out fairly fast, but when she dropped off the sushi we ordered another roll. After 20 minutes and everyone else at the table basically finished with dinner I asked her about the other... More
I have been there before couple of times, but was never that disappointed as I felt in my last dinner. The ambiance is good (inside only, their outside seating is not good!), and their service is truly outstanding. The food presentation and serving portions are good; however, the food has very ordinary taste. Also, they don't have ample choice of... More
I visited the restaurant with a large group of colleagues. The restaurant was nearly empty on this early Tuesday evening. Our server answered every question and accommodated all our requests with ease. First, we ordered drinks. My neighbor and I tried the cotton candy vodka and the skittles vodka. The cotton candy (blue) came in a conical glass with the... More
There are a few sushi places in town and some are better than others. Takanami is one of the better places to eat. Fun items like the Kobe roll and really good bento boxes kept me coming back. In the summer they have a really nice patio to eat and people watch- The service can get slow, but I've never... More
