Needed to say thank you for being in Brookings Cafe Kitanishi. What a wonderful place to find tucked in behind in a less than obvious place for a Sushi bar. Wonderful food...wonderful atmosphere and extremely friendly and competent staff. Reservations recommended. Don't drive by.

We have eaten here twice in the past month. Chef Beth does a nice job and we really enjoy the desserts. We like the wine list although in general this place seems overpriced and the service can be quite slow. The food is still consistent and on point. The hours are bizarre. Will be back.

Honestly we had eaten here a year ago while on a fishing trip so we went back again this year because it was pretty good, HOWEVER this time is wasn't so good, As we sat at the sushi bar and looked at the sushi, you would think they would have only fresh looking sushi but not the case the sushi...

The food was very good, but it can be busy and noisy. Japanese food is always a bit more expensive than other cuisines, and their prices reflected this. Though not Japanese, they have a fantastic cheesecake.

Love this restaurant with it's daily specials and the freshest of foods. Try anything but if they have the bacon wrapped tuna don't miss it. The soft shell crab sushi is delicious as are the bento boxes.

When my husband and I want to treat ourselves to some wonderful sushi, this is the place! To say it is the best sushi around does not give it justice, there isn't a lot of sushi around. I love sushi and the only place I would prefer to Cafe Kitanishi is in Seattle. My favorite rolls are the 'Spider with... More

I eat lunch every Thursday at Cafe Kitanishi. Beth (the chef/owner) is one of the most meticulous people I know. Her fish is always screamingly fresh and her innovative ideas can't be topped. I recently ate at Nobu, in Las Vegas, and had their salmon skin hand roll, I was surprised when I found that I liked Cafe Kitanishi's version... More
