“Worse and worse. I'm done”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

This place used to be so great and it's gone downhill but now I've had my fill. Beyond rather mediocre food recently, the service has been ATROCIOUS. And oddly, the last few times I have been there in the last 12 months, the sushi chefs and / or servers have been having screaming matches right in the middle of the place. Holy uncomfortable!

We sat at the bar this last time, had to flag down a waitress for drinks, had to ask her to please bring the drinks 15 minutes later and we finally grabbed our own food that had been sitting on the top of the sushi bar for 10 minutes, And THEN she brought out appetizers. After the lack of attention continuing, we had to get our check from the hostess. Wow. Very, very lousy service. I'm not going back. There are other places with equal or better food and MUCH better service, Save your $ and check out somewhere else.

“A carbon copy-”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

We are frequent diners at Sake in Bloomfield and happened to be near the Wethersfield location so we stopped there for dinner. Although the layout and décor is different we were delighted that the food and service is the same. Simply the best Japanese cuisine in the area. The staff is knowledgeable and attentive. Service is quick. Try the rock shrimp, I promise you won't be disappointed.

“Consistently good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

I was compelled to finally write a review since I've been here multiple times (including two of my birthdays) and they have always provided a good meal and deserve some props. We come here mainly for the hibachi; a flaming onion volcano, sake being squirted at you, trying to catch hot grilled vegetables flung towards your face...always a good time, lol! The extensive specialty sushi rolls are also good if not overwhelming with choices. Best part is the awesomely cheesy Japanese pop version of "Happy Birthday" they play over the speakers instead of making their poor servers sing for your enjoyment.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

Whether you are enjoying the terrific show of knife and culinary skills at the hibachi grill r at one of the cozy tables, the food and service at this restaurant are excellent. The place is clean and the atmosphere fantastic. In a shopping center off the Silas Deane Highway in Wethersfield (behind Panera) you have to look for it or know it is there...but it is worth the look.
