Pleasantly surprised with the freshness of the fish and the selection that they had. Not a Japanese person in sight, but I've gotten used to that in sushi places outside of the major cities.

Hokkaido: enter into a zenny space and savor its warmth and simplicity. Peruse the menu, and note the range of choices: from vegetarian specialties, to the real deal raw sushi possibilities. Order anything on the menu- you will never be disappointed here. The food is excellent and the staff is attentive and kind. A friend who visits from Burlington VT... More

The Hokkaido roll and a hot sake... my favorite special occasion combination. Hokkaido has served us well on my wedding anniversary, casual dining outside with friends, and even a meal with my boss. Many great memories, made better by good service and delicious food. Thank you Hokkaido!

Whenever we're in New Paltz we head down Church off the hullabaloo of Main Street to take refuge in the tranquil atmosphere of Hokkaido where the service and the food never disappoint. Aside from the sushi, we love the appetizers: miso eggplant, an array of unusual pickles, all accompanied by delicious hot saki. Our mouths are starting to water...bye,got to... More
