We enjoyed everything. Sushi Taro menu changes daily because the fish is flown in from Japan every day!!!!!
Traditional Japanese recipes along with favorites you'll recognize make this a unique and exciting dining experience if you choose!
Say hello to Nara, the bartender for me, Kitty San, she's from Mongolia! She is great!
Kiyomi will seat you in the bar without reservations if they are booked. Not to worry.
We had snow crab, california roll, shrimp iko, slippery seaweed, mackerel, and green tea ice cre with lots of stuff in the bowl.
The slippery seaweed is traditional so expect something different. Not so much to my taste but good for what it is.
All was very good and the staff is great. Nara is VERY sweet and has great smile when she has time to talk to you. She is the only bartender so she's busy.

Highly recommend a visit. KittyKatzOnline

Food was delicious but the absolute WORST staff ever. she was so aloof, like she could not be bothered. Even forgot to bring one of our ordered dishes...there are too many places to eat where the staff is interested in giving you the perfect meal...these folks could care less!

Not a great bar selection. Sushi menu was limited, but what we had was great. The view over 17th street was nice and the ambience was serene. Service was good, but he wasn't very talkative.

Make sure to make a reservation, for this dining experience will be one that you always remember...not to mention one that may just blow the roof off the bar you currently have set for the near-perfect restaurant experience! I recommend EVERYTHING!!!
