We dined on a Friday night around 5:30 PM without reservations for my daughter's birthday. Our party of four was greeted by a server as the hostess was seating another party. Maru definitely has a hustle about it and I was thankful we could dine without a reservation. I would suggest making one though! We sat in a booth which... More

Been here many times. The sashimi platter is always fresh and delicious. The service is great. If you want sushi/sashimi and you're in Grand Rapids don't bother going anywhere else.

For a relatively modest price, you get the best sushi in Grand Rapids. It isn't a "typical" sushi place but a place offering a unique take on great sushi. The fish is top quality and other ingredients are locally made. It is so well liked that on Thursday through Sunday, either plan a wait or go early. If it is... More

Rule #1 of a sushi bar. If you smell fish...run. #2: ALWAYS sit at the bar. Always! Its way more fun, interactive, friendly, interesting...you get it. #3: Always thank the chef at the end of the meal with eye contact and a 10 degree (Euro) bow. Maru is extraordinary. Easily the best Sushi restaurant in GR, Holland, GH...which (sadly) isnt... More

Very good 'modern' sushi in Grand Rapids. The rolls are very very good. In my opinion while you can order sashimi (which is excellent) the focus is on the rolls. The combinations are delightful. Maru has gluten free soy sauce which one of our guests needed for health reasons. The place is hopping, recommend making reservations.

Not impressed at all with this place run by a bunch of young kids who concentrate more on snide remarks to each other versus serving quality. Watch out for the $35 chef platter which clams to be sushi, sashimi, and a roll. It is a Rip-off! The plate had 75% garnish of inedible crap, and 25% sushi and sashimi. Manager... More

It's a rare thing for my good friend T to have such a great selection. Vegans are usually very limited in choices. If you're vegan, you'll love it here.

I like the ambience and cocktails but.... interesting dish, Japanese "inspired" at most. As a Sushi fan I assume Sushi to be offered as raw fish. The signature JAW dish was prepared with COOKED salmon. Really? It came prepared with a tasty salad (spring-mix!!not Japanese style salad) and the salmon in my roll was fully cooked. What a disappointment! The... More

Stopped in with friends and was quite happy we did. Service was great and met our requests without hesitation. Food was excellent as well. Will definitely stop by again next time in Grand Rapids.

During a visit to see our son at GVSU, we searched for a restaurant and Grand Rapids and were so happy we found Maru. Excellent food, service and atmosphere. We were lucky enough to go on a "Funday Sunday" with significant discounts on sushi rolls, wine glasses, bottles and beers. There were 6 in our group and we ordered a... More
