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.

The restaurant has a great outside area where you can sit and enjoy a nice sunny day (in summer )) salmon sashimi is the best! Service is great as well. Would definitely recommend going there!

I went here last night after work, it was a quick walk from the hotel I was staying at. I was a bit Concerned from some of the reviews on the service, but I was pleasantly greeted by several employees as I came in and I was quickly seated. The food I ordered tasted very good and I could not... More

Luckily I have been here MANY times over the years; otherwise I would not return. We visited on a Groupon deal which was great! I loved the selection! Our server, YoungJae, was not very attentive at all. I had to ask for a drink rather than be asked what I would like. We only had paper napkins when everyone else... More

We have eaten I Love Sushi countless times- eat in (, carry out, and delivery. There can be issues for each variation. Park in a marked spot otherwise you risk a ticket. Many city restaurants don't have free parking. There are 8 free spots for parking, there are well placed signs to alert you even as you walk in. The... More

I was there in May for dinner with a Japanese business colleague (it was his recommendation) and I found it as a very pleasant, tasty and nice place. Right on Lake Union, one can also pick up a table outside, if wished. The menu options are large and my colleague suggested us ordering a Special Sushi entree, which involved around... More

We had five people and it took a while to get a table... Was worth it! The crab miso is delicious! Great sushi at a good price and nice atmosphere! Get the hairy salmon role! Just.. Yum!

Nice view over the lake. Decent variety of sushi available, but this place is vastly over-priced. Service fast, and they do home deliveries

The sushi here was delicious...from the traditional nigiri, including many seasonal varieties of tuna, geoduck, etc., to the more funky, modern "habañero spiced masago" toppings on creative rolls....all very tasty. Fun, unpretentious, good quality.

I went to get take out meal as the hotel said they did not deliver- but they do. The sashimi came with an ice pak to keep it cold and the soup was warm and in a separate bag. A bit pricey but pretty good.
