I first ate at Mari's about 25 years ago, and it is still very good and going strong! Their newest location is bright and clean which is just what you want from a sushi restaurant. The menu is quite large with many items that you don't typically see in a Japanese restaurant, and the prices are very reasonable for the... More

The wife and I eat at Mari's several times a year. I love sushi but the wife doesn't, making Japanese a difficult choice when deciding where to eat. Fortunately Mari's has helped solve the dilemma by offering excellent Terriyaki and Tonkatsu as well as excellent quality sushi and sashimi. The service is always good and the atmosphere friendly. I highly... More

Was recomended here by a chef neighbor. This is a great little Japanese restaurant in Schenectady. The ala carte sushi is super fesh and special rolls above and beyond expectations. My friend was very happy with the dumplings, an order of seaweed salad, and some other kind of roll. Highly recomended!!

This is a neighborhood Sushi Bar in the wrong neighborhood. The people are nice enough, but I always feel a distance by the staff and the food is only good, rarely great. Prices are the usual full boat for sushi. No bargains, but completely reliable.

Mari and her husband go out of their ways to make each and every meal perfect. I have had almost everything on the menu....the sushi is top-notch...the teriyakis are tasty....the tempuras are tempting...even the SALAD is... More

My wife and I have been going to Mari's for many years, and have found the quality of both the food and service to be consistently excellent over all this time period. We have... More

The sushi and hot meals here cost from 10-15$ and though it seems pricey for students and lunch-eaters looking for quick take-out meals, it's a lovely restaurant to take the time and sit down and savor the attentive and friendly service, the home-made decor, the personal greetings at your table from the chef, and the delicious authentic Japanese food. It's... More

Every one in the family has a favorite meal at Mari's--sushi and sashimi are routinely excellent thanks to Hiro,others prefer the teriyaki or tempura. Atmosphere is happy and service is friendly. We love it and go often.
