For years we have been coming to Nishino when we visit Seattle for delicious uber fresh sushi and sashimi , which for the most part is still the case. Our disappointment can last night when we did the Exclusive Omakase , so very disappointing. This is now a mostly cooked and fried series of small dishes with a few sushi... More

The price, location, and atmosphere are the best around. I appreciate its location away from the inner city yet easy to locate. There is extra parking provided under the building reached from behind the building. They have the greatest owner who oversaw his business and customers with courteous style keeping the food and service on target. The preparation is clean,... More

I have loved this place for a long time, but I do not recall whether I have reviewed it. You can not call it a sushi place; only one of the 7 omekase courses was sushi. Mostly excellent raw fish treated with the best sauces and accompaniments . Always a wonderful amuse bouche with several tastes, followed by a fragrant... More

Got an email invitation (one of those direct email marketing campaign)from tripadvisor.com to review my favorite restaurant in Seattle. Took me a while to think of one as there are so many of my favorites locally; I shortlisted to two restaurants (the other being Spinase in Cap Hill) and decided to rate Nishino as my favorite. We ordered Omakase from... More

Stumbling upon Nishino after having just moved here was quite an experience. The restaurant exudes an understated sense of perfection that feels like an embrace from a long lost friend - warm and welcome. The staff going out of their way to make us feel comfortable even though we had no reservation and had to wait a bit for a... More

Rightly renowned for its seafood, Seattle serves up some wonderful sushi, and nowhere is that more evident than at Nishino. Presentation and service are of utmost importance in a Japanese dinner, and on both fronts Nishino excels. Every plate is a feast for all senses (with the possible exception of hearing) and the polite yet personable service is attentive but... More

From the second we sat down, we were rushed through the meal. We barely pulled our chairs up to the table before we were asked for our drinks selection. We hadn't opened the multi-page wine menu or put our napkins on our laps. We asked for some more time, the wait person, hovering six feet away, returned to ask us... More

The Wife and I were directed to Nishino by the clerk at the hotel. He even called ahead to reserve us a table. The décor was beautiful, service was very good. But the sushi was excellent, some of the best salmon I've ever had. The uni was divine as well. I rarely order mirugai since it usually not fresh, but... More

Parking in front is limited. Food is outstanding--reservations are almost a must. Service is top notch. We highly recommend this sushi restaurant.
