I have been to I love sushi many times and I have never been disappointed. Great food. Great service. And a beautiful view by the marina. My favorite sushi restaurant in Seattle. It is a bit pricey, but worth it I think.

I Love Sushi! Thanks to I Love Sushi, I love sushi! It was my first try, and with a LITTLE wasabi, it was extremely tasty! Our waiter checked on us every 5 minutes to see if we needed anything!

The super rainbow roll was excellent. Chef knows his craft. Beni sake nigiri was spot on. Salmon was very fresh. In Seattle, you must have salmon.

This restaurant has incredibly fresh and very authentic Sushi, along with other Japanese food. Bento boxes are great with lots of food. A definite GO on the East Side
