I Love This Place!

I have eaten here many times over the years. The food is always good and fresh, most of their fish selection (for sushi) is good and plenty of choices. Ample portions of fish with your nigiri.

We have been here many times and we are never disappointed. The food is amazing! We had a Groupon for a meal for 2 and it was very good and the price for 2 ($48) was good too. The meal came with miso soup, 3 appetizers composed of roasted-garlic calamari salad, deep-fried chilean sea bass, and sashimi. This is followed... More

Our server made a good recommendation for a sampler platter of sushi. It was very fresh, very tasty. Drinks were good too!

My partner and I only go out occassionally for sushi and we've tried many places. I Love Sushi is on Lake Union with a lovely view of the boats and water. We both got a cocktail which I admit wasn't the best but we don't usually get cocktails either with sushi. We ordered something new and absolutely got hooked. It... More

Both setting (marina water front) and food are very good. Service was good too. Recommended sake was pricy (didn’t ask price when ordering).

Four of us had lunch here on a beautiful day - and the sushi was fresh and delicious... we enjoyed chirashi, and a good selection of nigiri sushi and some interesting rolls - really good combinations in a lovely setting. Go here for fresh sushi and a delicious meal. Only thing that is hard to take is the name of... More

We've done happy hour at this restaurant a number of times. Definitely recommend their happy hour chirashi, which is just the right size. We have often gotten their chirashi for take-home, and it is one of the best chriashi's in the city.

The place is located near the port. You can sit both indoor and outdoor. You can enjoy the view and sun light during your meal. The reservation is required. The service is good. The taste of the sushi is great and fresh. My friend recommended me this place and i think it's really worth the price. The parking space is... More
