Mari's has served authentic Japanese cuisine ever since it was the only Japanese place in Schenectady. But I haven't been there in a while. So we went early evening on a Saturday. It's not a big place, so it's easily filled, and we got the one remaining table. The menu has converged with many other Japanese restos in the area,... More

For me, Mari's is the "go to" place...for lunch, dinner or takeout. The food is superb! My favorites are the salmon teriyaki and some of the sushi rolls. I love the homemade ginger salad dressing and the amazing chocolate mousse! They always offer white or brown rice, which is very nice. The service is excellent, too. ..friendly, fast, and accurate.... More

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.

I love Mari's. This restaurant has been serving up wonderful Japanese food for many, many years. It is a family run and operated business. 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

Mari's has moved from Niskayuna to Burnt Hills and then to Schenectady, and they have served excellent Sushi and provided great service in all three locations. 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
