“Up on Ebisu ;)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Ebisu has discovered the art of Happy hour above Robson st . Great deals from 4-6:30 and then it gets even busier. 99 cent Miyagi Oysters & $10.99 pitchers . Very fast wait service. They also have two patios to catch the sun.

“Japanese tapas - tons of choice to mix and match”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Second time here, just as good as the first. Fantastic menu with many dishes around $5-7 so nice to put together an assortment. Only complaint is the obnoxious loud rap music - tone it down in the back section please.

“New Year's Eve Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Having eaten here a few times previously, we decided to drop by New Year's eve without reservations with a group of six people right at dinner time. Much to our surprise we managed to get a table. The quality of food is pretty good and the menu is quite diverse from sushi to ramen noodles and some trendy dishes as well. Prices are reasonable and the dishes are of good size as well.

“Surprisingly great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We ate at Ebisu on Christmas Eve. It was one of the few places open and so whilst grateful for a place to eat, I am always a little worried about restaurants that have menus with photos of the food. My fears were unfounded...the food was fantastic. We ate prawn tempura, chicken teriyaki, spicy miso chicken wings, Alaska King rolls and much more. Great value, great food.

“Great Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We eat here almost once a week and they have consistently good sushi and bento boxes. Nothing off the wall or spectacular, but thee service is always and food never disappoints. If you're looking for a big exotic roll-sushi menu this might not be the place, but the sushi they do have is expertly done. Try the set menus, bento boxes etc, their specialty. They have a patio, but for some reason its never open during the day.
