We were looking for something a bit different in the Madison Valley area when we walked into Nishino.

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

The sushi was very good and it is a very family oriented restaurant with lots of kids. Interesting specials that are worth trying. The seaweed salad has three kinds of seaweed and three different sauces. It was great. The seared albacore with foie gras was also excellent and a different way of thinking about sushi. Tempura with seafood was another... More

We found this place from reviews online and it did not disappoint! It was a 10 min cabride from the Renaissance but worth the trip. It is a small place, make a reservation .. and it's loud, not romantic. There are about 20 seats At the sushi bar and about maybe 15 tables. The food was excellent, the highlights being... More

WAY too much salt in both the miso soup and the kale salad. But the maguro sushi was probably the best maguro I've ever had. The rolls were excellently prepared with not too much rice, as is so common. I had the egg-crepe wrapped roll, which was both novel and excellent. The other rolls were quite good, as well. Service...
