Quite possibly my worst restaurant experience ever!! We walked in and the hostess was on the phone. She was taking a take-out order so no worries….we waited patiently. A few servers came and went without acknowledging our existence…but still no biggie. The hostess finished her...call….looked up and said Hi? With an irritated tone. I asked for a table for three and was shown to a table with absolutely no further words from her. We sat a very long time and our server finally took our drink order. I asked about a gluten free menu (as GF options were proudly advertised on their website but no indications on the menu)…and was told no…but they have GF soy sauce. Great. Finally took our order. Waited and waited. Food trickled in one item at a time….leaving our 6 year old as the only one sitting with no food for a bit. Finally got all our food. My cucumber salad….ordered GF….came with imitation crab (it has gluten). Luckily I recognized it and removed it. Had no opportunity to let the server know this as she didn’t come back to check in. No GF soy sauce came. I flagged her down and asked for some. Still never came. I finally went up to the bar and asked for some. The lady I asked was so annoyed….she grabbed a jug of it and said well I have no containers so you have to have it in a shot glass. Almost done eating when our drinks came….and the woman that brought them sloshed mine into my sandal!! Server dropped the bill off….came back to take payment…was distracted by another server….fired it back down on our table and marched off to deal with something. Food was…..okay-ish. I will never be back!!! Would give a 0/5 if allowed.More

Excellent sushi meal. They have a combination of sushi, grill and rotating rolls at the bar. We sat a table and had a very good sushi meal. The place can get busy so go early.

We made reservations for Father's Day two weeks in advance. When we got there, we were shown to a table with other people already seated, when our party alone was enough for one grill. Part of our party ended up seated off to the side...at a separate table, rather than around the grill. This is the second time Sakura has placed our large party with another at the grill without warning us upfront. The manager is downright abrasive about it, as if our expectations are unreasonable. What Sakura is doing is fully booking the grills with advanced reservations, then also taking all walk-ins and crowding everyone together. They also do not change the quantity of fried rice and vegetables to accommodate larger groups, so you also end up getting less food. We've loved Sakura for years and it used to be our go-to celebration restaurant, but not any longer. We prefer to not be treated badly when we're paying several hundred dollars for our dinner out.More

My husband and I went here because I was craving sushi. We ordered sushi. The restaurant was very empty. We ordered nigiri. I ordered the salmon and freshwater eel along with an avocado roll. My husband ordered the Unagi, the yellowtail and the Saba. The...sushi was really good but the avocado rolls should not even have been served. It was as hard as a rock, it obviously was not ripe and should not even have been delivered to the table. I actually sent it back and I did ask the girl to take it off the bill which she did but it should not have even been served. Normally this restaurant is excellent, but I would have to say this visit was not up to their normal standard.More

Food was good, and I was excited about the rotating plates. Cost was reasonable! Kid had soups which we ended up taking home for later!

This is my favorite sushi restaurant in the area where I live although we do have to drive about 30 minutes to it. We were seated very quickly and we already knew pretty much what we wanted. My husband ordered a martini and I ordered...a ginger drop. We order a bunch of sushi, an avocado roll, a yellowtail. A snapper. I ordered three salmon and two tuna and we had two orders of eel. The fish is an excellent temperature and is always fresh. The total bill was just under $100 without tip. Excellent server. Will always go here for sushi. They do have teppanaki tables but we never eat at them. Make reservations for those. We will always be back.More

Automatic Gratuity for a group of 5? Insanity. The prices are also out of control having more than doubled in the last 3 years. Probably won’t visit as often

This was the first time this restaurant has let me down. First they had no ginger vodka so they could not make my drink. I noticed one of the boys behind the sushi counter was eating and did not wash his hands before making sushi....The sushi fish was way too cold and the avocado was not ripe. I have never given this restaurant less then 5 stars since they opened but they seem to have gone down hill. Waitress was nice though. Need to find a new sushi restaurant to try if we can find one where we live. We drive 30 minutes to this one. $61.36 for lunch plus tip for 2 people.More

We have been going here for years. We love this place. They have great tasting food. Great drinks. Great service. Prices are reasonable. The only thing I wish would be better at is mask wearing. Most servers are good except one. Some sushi chefs don’t...seem to wear a mask, some do. Not sure about the kitchen. I will continue to go here as I really do love this place. It is one of my favorite restaurants in the area.More

Prep chef was not wearing a mask. Waitress has mask under her nose. I watched her sneeze in to her hand! Ugh! Feet stuck to floor. No one was wiping the menus. Health department needs to shut this place down.I had to walk out.

I love this restaurant and have been going there since they opened. THEY ARE NOT PRACTICING COVID RULES! SUSHI CHEFS ARE NOT WEARING MASKS! I do not know about the kitchen chefs. Waitresses ARE practicing covid rules. I hope this review will get them to...put on their masks for you. Very crowded last night. Cooked food came out about 25 minutes before sushi order but I understand about the wait. Overall a good experience but was not feeling comfortable about my food. On the way out a customer was sitting in the waiting area with no mask on. They need to work on masking badly.More

We enjoyed the sushi & teriyaki chicken. Portions were generous and the teriyaki chicken was moist, sliced breast chicken and the teriyaki sauce was not too sweet. We had a delicious meal!!!

I was staying at the hotel directly across from Sakura, so it made sense to call there to order sushi for takeout. The sushi was delicious, The staff was friendly and helpful. They were quite busy, but managed to have my order ready at the...promised time. I recommend them for take out. The dining room was a bit too crowded for me to choose dining inside during this time of high COVID numbers.More
