Atmosphere was a little loud, service was mad-rushed [except he had time for 2 gals nearby!] We ordered a variety hoping for a better result, but it was terrible sushi! Grocery store stuff is fresher, without a terrible aftertaste! Expensive for daughter and I, $115,...& driving home, I wished I could get the bad 'fishy' taste out of my mouth that lingered! I may never trust fish again. [never left a bad review in my life B4 this]More

Ordered the traditional rolls, Shrimp Tempura and California. They were delicious! The restaurant was busy and loud, which is to be expected at a downtown restaurant. I decided to take my food back to my hotel room. I would definitely go there again.

We had great references from the place. My friend Eric knew Jairus Timmons and asked him to be the one to select our dishes. We did not order, we just placed ourselves in the hands of Jairus, and he made such a superb selection for...us that we can hardly wait to repeat the experience.More

It’s hard for me to give something 5 stars, but the sushi was amazing. Only in Tokyo have I had sushi this good and fresh. For the quality, the prices where not bad. Their Toro and Sake were great, and the staff were friendly and...attentive.More

A great place with ambience even in the outdoor environment. Food was wonderful and the service was friendly and attentive. My favorite roll was the full moon- see pic. So fresh and unique. The half moon was also delicious as was the shrimp tempura appetizer....Definitely a new favorite in downtown!More

A great place. Lively. Great server during our dinner. No matter what you asked for, she had a smile. The sushi is phenomenal. One of the best sushi I’ve had. Fresh, tasty. A bit pricey but worth it. Can be noisy with the music but...don’t worry...you will not notice because the food is so good. Wish I lived closer to I could go again. Go here and you will not be disappointed.More

Everything was super fresh. The front desk was very helpful and got us in on a late reservation. The food was delicious! Everything tasted fresh.

In our recent travel to San Diego we visit Full Moon. I really love sushi and sometimes I do not find what I am looking for. Full Moon is really everything that I like in a sushi bar. The ambiance, service and delicious food make...this restauran an amazing place to visit if you are planning to visit the beautiful San Diego.More

By coincidence we had dinner at Full Moon and we definitely don't regret it. Delicious food, perfect atmosphere and lovely staff. We tried several different dishes and all of them very yummy! Try the Salmon Skin Roll, highly recommended

The restaurant has a nice vibe and is very popular, so reservations are recommended. We always let the chef choose the best, most fun dishes for us. Called omakase. You can choice the price of $80 or $120 per person. The $80 version is more...than enough courses, each one being delicious and creatively platted. This should become your favorite sushi restaurant in San Diego.More

Stumbled onto this place while walking in the Gaslamp District. Sampled the Tuna sashimi & the full moon roll on a night there was a full moon, so maybe that's why it tasted especially good! Spicy crab inside & shrimp tempura on top with a...tasty ponzu sauce. They make their own low sodium soy sauce.More

I found this restaurant inn Yelp. It was very highly rated and more importantly, had an extensive menu for non-sushi lovers like my wife and mother. Unfortunately, while the food was good the service was poor in that those ordering sushi received and had eaten...all of their selections BEFORE the other guests received their salmon dinners. There is no excuse for not plating the dinners simultaneously.More

If you are looking for a unique presentation on fantastically fresh sushi this is the place for you. Order the sashimi platter as it is amazing!

Beautiful presentations, excellent flavors, attentive service -- what's not to like? Miso soup w clams added was a very nice starter. The Black Cod marinated in miso (overnight) was a taste extravaganza. Will be back!
