This is a great restaurant. the food tastes fresh and is prepared just the way it should be. Service is friendly and they were responsive to getting us a tyable even without reservations during their lunch rush. i had the poke lunch and am so very happy with it. Good quantity and lots of flavors on the plate.

Had lunch and dinner there for business. Food was good and service was very good. Would recommend for anyone who wants a nice sushi dinner but not a huge bill.

Had a group of 7, walked in and were seated in no time at all. Our waitress Alice was great, got our ordered in and the food came out lightening fast. I had the Lake Union Bento, come hungry if you order that.

We went to Japan last year and were craving something authentic. So we came here to meet up with some friends. It was pretty hard to find (especially in the dark and construction) but we were delighted because the restaurants had real japanese chefs. Besides from the sushi, I got soba noddles with a cold dipping sauce (just like from... More

Was here two times with friend on two consecutive weekends. Pretty fast service, but made one mistake each time I was there. Liked the selection of food we had.

I have dined at this place since they opened in the early 1990's and it remains a great place to eat, all for a reasonable price. Great service, beautiful presentation and large portions. They have some free parking available. The place is appropriately named - "I LOVE Sushi"!

This restaurant is on the harbor of Lake Union, a little north of downtown. Adjacent a few restaurants and yacht sales area. Restaurant is harborfront and nicely decorated. Sushi is good but not special.

Had lunch. We got 3 rolls which were OK - but a bit loose in the texture. Overall it was "fine" meaning I would not go out of my way to avoid this - on the other hand I would not seek it out either

Went for lunch. It's good food, though not a particularly great value. Tempura lunch was tasty, and the crab salad was really good, though you must order the "extra crab" for another $2.50 in order to have enough to make a lunch.
