Was hungry and walking around found this place. Waiter was nice and recommended me couple shrimp rolls, with a cold beer. Think it's a little bit expensive, but is a very nice place where you can have a really good time with great sushi rolls!

Try the fairview roll, really tasty! Tempura scallops melt in your mouth. The Amber beer goes great with the food. Nice patio on the water.

Exceptional fresh fish. Authentic Japanese, not just California rolls. Pleasant setting on Lake Union.

We use our groupon promotion to try the 5 course fixed price dinner here. The dinner is of good quality and high value. There were 3 appetizers, ours were Japanese squid salad, grill teriyaki salmon and sashimi plate, the main course was deluxe sushi plate with miso soup, and dessert was mango pudding. We have the experience.

Had decided to have dinner at this restaurant because it was close by to our hotel (Silver Cloud Inn). This restaurant is located across the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center & right next to Lake Union. There is in/outdoor sitting. The food was absolutely delicious. My daughter had the sashimi platter & not only did the presentation look great, the fish... More

Today I had the best sushi and sashimi meal I've had in my life. Kudos to the sushi chef. After discovering this place over 15 years ago, I always make it a point to visit every time I'm in the Seattle area, for work or fun. The quality and freshness of the sushi has always been excellent. However, today, they... More

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 other... 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!
