We, a large party of nine, had a delicious dinner. 5:15 reservations. Did not particularly like the whole line up at the door setup here, but the food and service were excellent.

The sushi was tasty although a bit loosely rolled. My family enjoyed the ramen and the grilled swordfish was amazing. The waiter was very helpful. He worked hard because he had several tables to look after. Overall a nice place and good atmosphere.

Excellent sushi! Very fresh. Loved the panko crusted ahi tuna, the Sunset Flower and the salmon nigiri was amazing(melts in your mouth like butter).

Awhile back Sansei did not take reservations, but they do now. We were there a few months ago & they took our reservation. I highly recommend a reservation so you ensure that you will get a table at the time you want... More

I just ate the sushi, and not the Kodama, although it sounds delicious.
What is the dress code? Is business casual or nice dress shorts ok?
