My family and I visited for lunch today. Service was very good. The sushi, however, was very variable, from tasty and fresh to not so tasty and fresh. I left wishing that I had eaten at one on the brewpubs nearby. Maybe their strength is in cooked dishes, which were also available. My family liked the décor.

I've always ordered my meals to go. The sushi is yummy and there are lots of options. Seaweed salad is really good. A little pricey, but will still continue to go there.

The sashimi and sushi are very fresh. I was pleased with my dinner. I recommend Hokkaido highly. It is difficult to make the 100 character minimum and keep my review fresh

This little cozy restaurant is for sure one of my favorites, the ambiance is great and the food really delicious. The dishes are very consistent and the services is very good. Every time i'm in town I stop by and get my usual order. Cant wait to be back again. I extremely recommend this place.

This is our family favorite. Wonderful, fresh food. The service is great and we always feel welcome! It is a small location so call for a reservation or go at an "off" time. Take out is always an option. Our family eats here at least once a month!

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. Reviewers raved about the service, so maybe my expectations were too high, but I found that the staff was less than flexible, not necessarily friendly and... More

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
