We had a lovely dining experience at Maru in early September. The place was packed on a Thursday night! The one negative thing I would say is how close together the tables are. We heard almost the entire conversation our neighboring table was having. That aside, the food was wonderful. We ordered the Sexy Bacon roll and the Crouching Tiger... More

I visited for lunch, I had done my homework since I am vegan and it is recommended by VeganGR. My lunch companion and I sat outside which was very nice. The interior is just as nice. I ordered the veggie hibachi which came with a choice of salad or miso soup - I chose the miso soup. I had let... More

This place is really the only place in town where the quality of the ingredients really stands out. Amazing sushi, definitely not a cheap place to grab a roll but very well made!

My wife and I went to Maru on a sleepy Friday afternoon at 330p. We ordered 3 rolls. The place was half empty. It took 40 min for our order to arrive. When we asked our server (after 30 min) when we could expect our order, she said she'd check. She never came back with an update. The place would... More

My boss brought me here for dinner and first impression was how crowded this place was! The food took a while to arrive but you can people watch too! When food came, it tasted great! Quite pricey but I didn't have to pay! Located in a "uptown" neighborhood, parking was limited and there is a very nice church nearby converted... More

We dined here with our son, who loves sushi. My husband and I had the hibachi, grilled chicken, brown rice, and veggies. The food was outstanding! The service was a bit slow, but did pick up after we told our waitstaff we were on a time schedule. Will return.

Popped in on a Friday night about 6pm. The place was packed (it always is), but there was room at the bar. We were waited on quickly by Derrick. I opted for the Malbec. The hubby grabbed an Italian red. Both were great. The food - a mix of sushimi, maki and specialty rolls, was, as per usual fresh tasting... More

Super delicious, creative sushi, sashimi and hibachi-style dishes. Really good happy hour food and drink specials, and a lovely place for lunch with friends, or a romantic date night.

Definitely would give 5/5 if it wasn't for how warm it was inside Maru. Literally needed to fan myself with the menu. Sweating. It was rather hot outside as well (high 80's), but the waitress also stated this was usual and the air needed replaced. On a positive note ! We had a party of 7 on a Friday night.... More
