This is as good or better than any sushi I have tried outside of Japan. But no reservations, so a 25 minute wait. And if you are just visiting, PARKING IS COMPLICATED. this is really downtown. Consider Uber. Nice servers, but they, and the atmosphere, are busy. Tip is included in the bill. Decoration is simple and elegant at the... More

No words can describe that melt-in-your-mouth taste with every piece of sushi. Just wow! 100% get the Chef's Menu and enjoy the some of the freshest fish you will ever have. Pricey but worth your money.

Hands-down the best sushi I've ever had. My wife and I went here for dinner and ordered the chefs menu. There's nothing we ate that wasn't amazing all of the sushi and the sashimi and the makis were extremely fresh very well-made and very tasty. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly to explain everything to us. I found the... More

Really one of the best sushi I've ever tried, and the service is really extraordinary. The menu is rather complete, I recommend the Nozawa by far with some wine.

If you love perfect pristine fish, you will love Sugarfish. We were at the Beverly Hills location. Room is simple but filled with extremely good looking people. Service was friendly and attentive. But, this place is all about the fish. It reminds me of eating sushi when I was in Japan. First of all you'll notice that the rice is... More

This is a good sushi place to take your date. However, I thought that the price was a bit too high for the quality of sushi they served.

If you haven't tried Sugarfish and you are wondering whether it's worth it, it is. Go. Do it. You won't regret it. I thought I knew sushi until I sat at the bar and told the chef to give me the works menu. My friend warned me that going with the smaller menu leaves feeling regret. "You won't want it... More

I love sushi, and sugarfish makes some really great food, but I was extremely disappointed in how rushed I felt while eating there. I dined with a friend at 8pm on a Wednesday, and it felt like our waitress was trying to get us in and out as fast as humanly possible. Next time I think I will go to... More

Best sushi ever, hands down. No other comment. Nothing else matters. Who cares about the ambiance or the service when the fish is just this good.
