The blackened codfish melts in your mouth, the sushi is incredible, and for a sushi restaurant the prices are great! Always call ahead for a reservation. If not, try showing up and seeing if you can get a spot at the sushi bar in the back. Tatami rooms are great for larger parties.

The Black Cod was amazing. Location in Chinatown (International District). Old Japanese restaurant in the nation. They also have salmon collar (it's not in the menu so you have to ask for it).

I've been coming here, with just three owners, since 1989. Nothing much has changed, including the recipes. Many of the original waitresses are still around bartending and waiting on tables. Amazing! The traditional Japanese food is consistently good and be sure to check out the specials on the back wall. Ask for help because it's written in Japanese. There are... More

Just thinking about what I ate here last night makes me want to come back! My flight was delayed and I arrived late to meet friends and family with my huge suitcase and the hostess was nice enough to keep my suitcase behind the screen so I wouldn't have to worry about it. Food was already ordered and everything was... More

Went here with some fisherfriends who definitely know their stuff. Maneki didn't disappoint. Cute little place and not pretentious at all. Service staff was super friendly and our food came out SUPER promptly. The sushi rolls are fantastic...not drenched in sauce or too gussied up. As my friend told me, 'It's nice to actually because the flavor of the fish... More

I recommend the black cod and highly recommend making a reservation (I couldn't get through calling so I sent a text to their other number and got a reply). All the food was delicious. A couple next to us said they came in yesterday and liked it so much that they came again that next day lol

This was a great discovery for me. After reading multiple reviews in local magazines I have decided to give it a try. Parking is ample on the street and free after 6 pm. The place was packed. There are 2 bars . One upfront and does not have a sushi chef. You order the food from an older lady. The... More

My husband and I have a favorite local Sushi place that is amazing and also All-You-Can-Eat, so when we go out for Sushi we are most often disappointed. I must say that Maneki's has the most bang for your buck of anywhere else we have been for Sushi, and had really good flavor as well! Being a vegetarian, I only... More

Everything was delicious. Soft shell crab, salmon Rockefeller, rolls, all great. Service was pretty good. My only quibble was the hole - in - the - wall ambience. Boxes piled near the door, wasn't sure if it was open.

This is a venerable Japanese restaurant (on a steep hill) in Japan Town of Seattle. It is an izakaya-type restaurant which means they have sushi but that is not their specialty and they do not do fusion foods, causes for complaints in the very few less-than-stellar reviews I've read here. Oh, and one more criticism I saw was about having... More
