Great sushi but feel like you showed get more for the money. 1 roll had 6 pieces and it was $12. Our waitress was awesome. The temperature of the restaurant is freezing cold. I'll be sure to bring a sweater next time.

I had heard great things about this restaurant but was quite disappointed. While it does have a great atmosphere, the sushi was just average and the portions were small for the price. Two of the three rolls we ordered I would consider half rolls and each of those was more than $10. I can say the service was good.

Service and food is excellent. We have been here several times and these people know how to run a restaurant from the front staff to the waiters . A perfect meal for two is edamame,tuna poke, Korean BBQ tacos, and a Rainbow roll. Just perfect. If I could give this place 10 stars I would. Good job guys we will... More

This is my favorite place for sushi. As a local, I have been here a couple times and they never disappoint. If you don't like sushi, that is okay, they have a lot of great "no sushi" items as well. Plus the service is fantastic. If you are there when Jamie or Briana are working, make sure you ask for... More

Excellent place to eat and the food is prepared to perfection each and every time we visit. All staff is wonderful but our favorite waitress is Libby. We just light up when we know she is going to be our waitress. She is professional and so friendly. She makes our dinner experience even better. My husband and I would highly... More

We had heard this place was really a place worth the wait and it is true. The restaurant is trendy and gorgeous at the same time. We thought we were early enough arriving at 5:45 but there was already a 30-45 minute wait. The waitstaff is energetic and attentive to detail. Every food morsel was as tasty as it looked.... More

We LOVE COBO!!!! This place NEVER disappoints!!! It is usually crowded on the weekends but it is so worth the wait!!! The specialty rolls are all so good and large! You will not leave hungry!!! There are other non-sushi options but we always go for the sushi! The calamari appetizer is so light and crispy!!!!

Recommended by a local booner, this place was awesome! Food was delicious and atmosphere was very nice for my wife and I on our date night. We came twice and service and staff were excellent both times.

Love this place - great atmosphere, great service, great food, and I don't even particularly like sushi! (All my friends and family do--even the vegetarian is happy with the Going Green.) The torched sashimi with jalapeños is pretty delicious and highly recommended.

Want good sushi and overall cool atmosphere? This place has it. Sushi is the best I've had in the High Country and the build out of this place is awesome. Tons of different rolls to try-- if you like sushi you won't be disappointed.
