“Great sushi, great atmosphere”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

I wasn't a sushi fan til moving to Fernie. Yamagoya is one of top sushi restaurants I have eaten at (I love sushi now and love trying new sushi places where ever I travel!). The food is amazing, the atmosphere is terrific, and the desserts are to die for. It is not a place to come for a quick dinner. I've seen some out-of-towners come in a rush, complain about how long it's taking to get their food, etc. This is a restaurant where you come to dine, and enjoy the experience....not gobble your food up and run. So please ensure you have the time to sit and enjoy. The sticky pudding dessert (who knew?!) has got to be my fave, as well as the chocolate mousse. The staff is friendly and very polite. The chef's are amazing too :) If you come to Fernie, try it, but it's a popular place, so you may have to wait your turn too...but believe me, it's worth it :) PS it's a smaller restaurant, they don't take reservations cuz they are busy without them. So it's easier to go in smaller groups.

Yamagoya always delivers, with great atmosphere in the winter and outside dining and beautiful views in the summer.

“Best place in Fernie”
Reviewed September 18, 2011

There's a reason it's hard to get a seat. This place is by far the best food in Fernie and tip three sushi restaurants I've eaten at. Including the ones in Vegas. Try to go early dinner to get a seat without a long wait. You will not be disappointed

“Always amazing!”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

We go to Yamagoya when ever we get the chance. The food is divine so I always end up over ordering (too hard to choose). The restaurant is always really busy so we go expecting to have to wait a while for a table (they don't take reservations). It's worth it though. An unexpected sushi gem in the heart of the Rockies!
