we have been coming to Sushi Spot since the beginning when the first owner opened the restaurant. Since then she sold it to a young couple. At first the food was spotty, with not so fresh fish and not so great service. Now, I would say the food had vastly improved but the service is terrible. Perhaps they think that... More

I have usual gone thee with other who want good sushi. They do a great job with that. I usually have something else. They get fresh organic food and prepare it just right. I have enjoyed their chicken curry a few times. It comes with a small fresh fruit salad. I think they do everything well. The service was excellent.... More

Concise menu with everything plus new special menu at every visit. Happy hour for drink specials, and I like the atmosphere and location.

After a hike through the Sequoias, we found this little spot in Arcata. Our server was friendly and offered great suggestions for touring the area. The sushi was creatively conceived and perfectly made. We loved the one with Dijon mustard. Our meal here was perfect, and is a treasured memory of a magical trip to the PNW.

First time at The Sushi Spot for me-several friends had recommended it so wasn't surprised how good it was. We were a party of four so got three orders of sushi...my favorite was the Spider roll but the Alaskan Thunder was also very good. We added miso soup, a bowl of white rice and a Sapporo beer. Everything was comparable... More

Not super fancy, but very trendy setting, very good, and a lot of food for the price. The crispy spicy roll was excellent.

I love Sushi Spot. Their chefs are talented and the decor and room are comfortable, especially now that they've expanded twice as wide. For sushi in Arcata this is the ONLY option, since the other sushi restaurant is out of the way and doesn't serve alcohol. Can't speak to the other's cuisine since no drinks is a dealbreaker and I...

Recently expanded but still packed. Best sushi spot I have been to anywhere; no pun intended. Many nooks to sit in, bar stools, or larger tables. Great for a quick bite or to languish over the delights.

An Awsome change in pace from the usual Arcata dining options. Sushi is prepared with some unique pairings that add new life to old favorites. The ambiance is great, the parking is typically Arcata tough....
