Service was very fun, all of the Chef have a lot of sense of humor. Atmosphere was so excellent with the other clients. The food was delicious, I even forget the sauces (what a shame). The best teppanyaki we made. A very nice surprise to find this restaurant during our road trip and a very good memory who gave us... More

This is a great place to eat. My family and I were totally entertained by Chef Casey while he prepared our meals. The chef prepared our meals perfectly and everything was delicious. The wait staff was wonderful as well. We had to wait for a table and so we went to the hotel's lounge while waiting and the hostess came... More

The food was very good. Reminded me of a Benihana type experience. A little pricey, but most places like this are.

We went with 8 people celebrating a 75th birthday. The menu had something for everyone from vegetarian to seafood and meat. The food was very good but Chef Gene stole the show. He was funny, entertaining, a very good chef and put on quite a display with fire and some juggling. We laughed and had a great evening.

This wasn't the first place I've been where they cook the food right in front of you but it was a personal favorite. To ease us into the mood, our server Victoria was very kind and checked on us regularly. Our chef Scout was very friendly and outgoing. His presentation seemed very personalized, providing a new experience from what I... More

We have family here in Flagstaff and this is their #1 place to go. Nicely greeted, quickly seated at the sushi bar. Had great sushi and no problems making some changes. Will be eating there again, I think we will go for the hibachi next time after reading some of the other great reviews.

The food actually tasted good, and the server was entertaining (not a silly cartoon). We had the chicken teriyaki. I always get this because the food usually is barely edible at a hibachi. But, this was very good. A member of our party had lobster. i had a bite and was glad i had boring chicken. The staff was attentive... More

Was very sorry to see the Sushi bar close for lunch when the new management took over. I'm not making the business decisions, so can't say why, just that we miss the lunch option. We still go for dinner here when it's Sushi time.These guys have consistently made some of the best Sushi we've eaten anywhere. Custom rolls or "Chef's... More

Thank you for the feedback and for the acknowledgement of Sakura being the 'original' sushi restaurant in Flagstaff. Our team IS great and they love to hear it. We'd love to open again for lunch - and it's good to hear requests from guests such as yourself to do so. The more we get... the better the possibility! More

We had a long day of sight seeing and did not want to go out of the hotel for dinner. We went to Sakura for teppanyaki and we were absolutely thrilled with the food and experience. Our chef was just an entertainer...he truly lite up the table several times even creating a small fireball. The other couple at the table... More
