We walked in at the last minute (our first choice was closed because of Super Bowl, silly people;-)) and Sasaya was open and welcoming. We do not know very much about Japanese food, but the waitress was very helpful in her suggestions. We enjoyed the sampler dishes and the recommended skewers. Very tasty soup.

Went here thinking it was a sushi restaurant but apparently they are an Izakaya now. Fine with me. Food is great and sake selection is good. You can tell they take their food seriously.

i think there could be more variety to the menu, but i've probably been there often enough to think that way. good food for somewhat less than other izakayas. great sake selection, although i'm not much of a sake drinker.

One of my favorite izakayas (sake-tapa house). Great list of Sake, and good tapas. And overall less $ than others. Go there on Wed. nights for half-price sake with all gal pals! Happy times, always!
