One of the very best places for sushi in Seattle

Wonderful restaurant with excellent sushi. The wine pairings are really very good. The decor is really beautiful. Very good service. The star though is really the wonderful food. The fried oysters are delicious, as is the asparagus tempura roll. Highly recommend a visit.

We had a variety of appetizers, sashimi and maki rolls. Everything was delicious and well prepared. The cocktail I had was one of the best I've ever had--I am very picky when it comes to drinks. I always describe my likings to the server and rarely the drinks come spot on. This was one of the rare occasions that I... More

As this restaurant enjoys great reputation we had high expectation, but sadly I must say they didn't live up to the reputation, especially at the price they charge. We had a 6pm reservation on a Sunday and arrived on time, but there was no parking space left in the packed lot. When we made a reservation on the phone there... More

We were looking for something a bit different in the Madison Valley area when we walked into Nishino. It is not your average neighborhood sushi place, but rather an elegantly appointed restaurant with a diverse and at times innovative Japanese menu. We had some traditional sushi and were amazed at the generous cuts of hamachi, the fresh scallop and the... More

Not the best restaurant on any one parameter--food, service, presentation or decor, but wholistic ally it all worked fine, and was worth the hefty price tag. Great place to celebrate a special event, but for day to day Japanese food, the top places in the ID are my favorite.

We had spicy butte clam soup, tempura, kale salas, and a sushi combo, with a large chilled sake. Everything was perfectly executed. The service was impeccable. It was a very enjoyable dinner, as expected, as always.

I have been to Japanaese restaurantes all over the world, including Japan, so every time I try to find the best in the town I am at the moment. I chose to go to this restaurant because I had read the reviews. Well, I cannot compare it to the others in town, so the only thing I can say that... More

The food was excellent and the service was nearly flawless. My wife and I had the omakase for the first time. Each course was innovative and very tasty. I will probably chose more conventional sushi and sashimi in the future because that is really our favorite and the omakase was pretty spendy. Be sure to get there early on weekends... More

I read sushi was very big in Seattle so wanted to try it one night during my visit. I then saw a WSJ review and Zagat score of 29 for this place and wanted to try it. When we got there we sat at the sushi bar and was told the owner and helmed chef Tatsu Nishino was working that... More

Setting is good. A good place to entertain. Food and wine are excellent. Desserts are good too. The waitresses are very knowledgeable on the menu details
