great service, fresh fish, a favorite spot on the Miracle Mile. Just a little bit noisy. Take out is also a great option.

We've eaten at a lot of sushi places but my wife and I agree that this is the best sushi we ever eat. Very fresh ingredients prepared with generous portions and a fun open atmosphere They open for dinner at 5:45 and if you get there by 6 you'll get a table at the first seating promptly. By 6:30 or...

My favorite is tempura and I am never disappointed with the Seafood tempura at COCORO! My husband loves the sushi and the grandchildren like the teriaki salmon very much.

The eating area was small and very loud which made it hard to have a conversation. The waitress was very prompt, kind and friendly enough to point us in the direction of a good bar. We had a Nigri rolls, tempura,miso soup. The fish did not taste fresh but everything was flavorful and presentable. Also the seaweed in the miso... More

If you are closer to Stockton than SF then Genova has the best bread and because of that, sandwiches, in California. It is an old facility with hand worn groove in the door from the years of consistant faithful who come back over and over for the Italian desserts and the bread. Side note: I had a New Yorker tell...

Greeted with a warm smile and seated with a menu in spite of there being only 15 minutes before closing. Tables are close together but that only adds to the friendly atmosphere. Being from out of town and not knowing what to expect, I was happily surprised to find everything on the menu to be within a reasonable price range.... More

Cocoro's probably has the BESTJapanese food in town. Not only is it reasonably priced, the staff is always friendly and the food is always very delicious. It has a very cool vibe going on and my trips there have always been very fun, either with family or friends. Thank you Cocoro!
