Great atmosphere! Great Japanese Food in Wayzata!

I love this place!! The service is always good, the food us always great and the atmosphere is just right! I like their sushi, but I usually order off the traditional Japanese cuisine section of the menu. Fun outdoor seating on Lake Street Wayzata, just across from the lake!

Fantastic service and really good food. The sushi is authentic and the waitstaff does a great job guiding you if you need help. Right across from the lake!

The variety and quality of the rolls really sets Sakana apart from other sushi bars. From the traditional maki, through the Midwestern safe options (BMW roll?) to the scrumptious if predictable No. 9, they really do it well. Attentive staff in the lakefront setting adds to the overall enjoyment.

Everything here is reasonably price and delicious. The sushi was served at correct temperature and was melt in your mouth delicious. The rice was properly cooked and had the right fish/rice ratio, which is key in great sushi. A lot if times rice is mushy and not flavorful. The price is what you would expect from and sushi place. Its... More

My wife and I love going here. They have a great outdoor patio. The staff is all great but we always have fun with Travis. He knows us by now and usually we just look to him for what to order. They have a full bar and make a solid drink. The food is consistently great.

Visited Sakana with my adult daughter, husband and parents. We went at 5:00p.m. for the last of Happy Hour. We were fortunate to get a table out front to enjoy the "busy" and atmosphere of downtown Wayzata. This was nice ambiance. Our server was so wonderful, informative, and helpful. The service was also quite fast. This is appreciated when doing... More

Extensive menu, nice presentation of our food. My son and his girlfriend both enjoyed their sushi rolls, my husband liked his Three Green Chicken dinner and I liked my Shrimp Tempura dinner. The service and food were good but not outstanding. Because it was my first time dining at Sakana I will likely try it again. Maybe I'll be wowed... More

High quality sushi and fun rolls. Their non sushi items are good too- Especially the fried rice and sesame crusted tuna entree. They take reservations on open table which is nice too. They have a great little patio that is great on the nicer months.

My wife and family have been visiting Sakana since it opened years ago. The atmosphere is great. Views are wonderful and Johnny behind the sushi bar is amazing. He's one of the best chefs we've had anywhere anytime. The fish is always fresh. Johnny has always been most creative when we've ask for something unique. Be sure to ask to... More
