Genmaicha with Matcha Tea

This was my first time eating here. As a Tea Sommelier in training, I was especially happy to be served Genmaicha with Matcha tea with my meal. It was served in a large cast-iron teapot which was a nice touch. There were 6 of us going there after work. 3 of us were Canadians (me from Ottawa and the... read more

This place always has very fresh fish and the sushi menu has some really wonderful and creative rolls. Truly, if you want to try some sushi with some bling this is the place. They also have an extensive sake menu but if that is not your thing they also have some fun and creative cocktails.

We are still reminiscing about I Love Sushi. The food was SUPERB! The "Alexander" was exquisite with phenomenal flavor. Every thing we tried was fresh and beautifully presented. For Sushi lovers, this restaurant is a Seattle Gem. We are Eager to return. This place is Highly Recommended!

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. Something new for me: I bought a Groupon for Omikase Dinner for 2 ($60 for a $90 value) - it was actually pretty good!... More

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

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
