Just everything about Sono you will not find better. The staff, the food, the Japanese wines, the location, the ambience, EVERYTHING here is to die for! Front counter staff even went above & beyond to find where we could purchase Japanese wines. Thank you SONO 8-)

“A great new style Japanese”

It's a great locale, traditional and modern seating, good traditional service and the food is always great. Great pre movies or for a business lunch.

“Sushi and sake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

I love this restaurant the staff are amazing and the food is even better than amazing. We celebrate all our special occasions here. Soft shell crab, pork belly, black cod, scallop sushi, salmon and on and on. It is our favourite restaurant and well worth the visit. They have a sushi bar, tepinarki bar, western tables and tables like you are sitting on the floor as well as private rooms. It is great.

Very good to excellent. Only comment is that it is a large restaurant so not the best choice for those looking for a romantic setting
