My mixed shashimi with rice was ok but not great. My wife's grilled chicken breasts were very strange, with one piece tasted like ham. They are not succulent chicken for sure. This is not an authentic Japanese place and also the chef is speaking Chinese!

Came here on a Sunday afternoon of a holiday weekend. Despite the huge crowds a block away at Pike's Place, this restaurant seated us immediately. The seafood was super fresh - Gee, I wonder where they get it. Good value, recommended.

Just steps away from Pike Place Market in Seattle... Staff was very friendly, food was very very good. I am not typically a Japanese Cuisine fan, however I would strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone who just flat enjoys food! Not sure if this is always the case, however my wife and I went in at Dinner time on a... More

Fish seems very fresh despite how long it took them to prepare it. "Sushi chef is busy", we were told but there were not that many people in the restaurant. Still, overall, quite a decent place to have sushi if you're in the Pike Place area.

Fancied something a bit different and always like to try Japanese food when they have vegetarian options available, as this place does. Not sure how much the waitress serving me could understand my English accent, but we got there in the end. Some tasty local bottled beers and I had the veggie yakisoba, so a noodle dish. Would have preferred... More

I was visiting Pike Place Market, and walked by this place. I peeped in, it seems full. I noticed the staffs either speak Mandarin or Cantonese, I know that it is run by Chinese and not Japanese. No offense, some great Japanese restaurant are ran by non-Japanese. The judgment will be on the food and service and not on their... More

After a long day of touring and shopping around Seattle my friend and I were beat. It was Sunday evening and we were walking around for a place to grab a bite to eat. Trying not to walk around the hills of Pike's Place Market, we ran into the Japanese Gourmet Restaurant. From the outside it appeared nondescript. We read... More

We chose JGR because it was choice, directly across the street from Inn at the Market. Actually my wife liked the idea of on climbing another hill. I looked at TripAdvisor's reviews and wondered why anyone in their right mind would want to have salmon or northernwestern seafood at a Japanese restaurant. That's down the street at the Market or...

Stopped at this location shortly after arriving in town. It was very convenient, the service was great, and nice selection of food. The bento boxes have a good range of components. Recommend this place if out shopping or walking around Pike Place Market.

We had a groupon for half-price dinner. Arrived before dinner hour, we were greeted and seated. She explained it would be an hour before the dinner hour but said we were welcome to sit, have a drink, maybe and appetizer and wait so we did. Never felt pressured to get more than the appetizer to share and a drink until... More
