We celebrated our son’s 30th birthday here. We ordered a chef’s platter. The $75 platter filled us all up. Everything was spectacular! We finished up with vanilla cheesecake. We were glad we had reservations because the wait was 30 minutes for those who arrived without.

Fantastic rolls here, that’s their speciality. I love sushi but rarely get it in GR because we are limited in options that aren’t gross. Here is the only place that it’s always good. Yeah it’s pricey, and a bit of a pain to get to...More

So much good here it's a shame that they feel the need cut corners by using Fake Crab in their rolls, and worse that they falsely advertise it as real. (Fake Crab is supposed to be spelled with a K, and typically White Fish) in...More

We've been to Maru several times. The food is excellent. It's ok to go here for dinner, especially if you're up for a relaxing evening. However, our visits during lunch are just frustrating. We ate this week with a group of 12 from our office....More
