Quality food, a bit pricey

Went to Shushi Damo for my step daughter's birthday. The place is well done, airy and subtle not to dark or light. Our server dropped off hot towles and took our drink orders right away. Drinks came out quickly and correctly and we ordered appitizers. Everything was well done. I had fried oysters... read more

I am not a fan of rolls with crazy combination of ingredients, names and sauces so ordered the seafood salad which was super salty and the seafood while plentiful did not seem of high quality. The fried oysters were good, though. Someone else in the party ordered a chicken teriyaki and got a huge portion of chicken piled on top... More

Depending on the night you go you may or may not have to wait long. For the price I would rather go somewhere that would accomodate more seatings. We usually love sushi but because we had to wait we had to sit by the bar and wait and needless to say the bill was adding up! We were a group... More

I've been coming to Sushi Damo since it first opened, and boy has it gone down hill. The decor is worn and tired, the food (albeit still decent) is way over priced for the market it is in, and the service is slow and uncaring. Our server today was downright catatonic. There were only four tables for lunch service today,... More

We've dined there a number of times and it's always a pleasure. Their food has always been fresh and presented well. We particularly like the mistletoe roll, blue ocean roll and their miso soup, which is of the chain. Romain has become our go-to server, always extremely helpful, friendly and highly professional! We highly recommend it...

Stopped in for lunch and had the crazy horse roll. It was fresh and tasty. Excellent service and beautiful atmosphere. A must stop.

Celebrated my husband's birthday at lunch on New Year's Eve. First, the greeting was warm and welcoming and we immediately felt comfortable. We even changed tables twice! The decor was very upscale, the music sublime and service was A++ by Roman who was very knowledgeable, helpful, friendly but professional and really made the visit perfect. The menu offers a great...

There's a lot of disconnect between the ambience and service. The interior is very trendy but the service is not up to par. The young staff comes across as newly-hired and trainees. First of, I don't think they even like Japanese food- they seem not to know what they are selling. While I agree with the other reviewer that this... More

I had out of town guests who love Japanese food after having lived in Japan for a year - thought this place was a great choice for the atmosphere and food. The place is small with a full bar, no frozen drinks though. Food is good, presentation great, service can be quicker. Our food was long in coming and at... More

My husband and I were looking for a new sushi place to try, and Sushi Damo was a great find. The atmosphere is modern and intimate, with outdoor tables as well. We loved the Tuna Tataki appetizer, melt in the mouth tuna with a wonderful light ponzu sauce. We also had the sushi and sashimi combo and the Tokyo Rose... More
