“Good Sushi for such a small town.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

Even though McCall is a small mountain town somehow they manage to have a great set of restaurants. The sushi bar does a superb job at providing basic sushi to the area. Don't expect off the wall options or that your fish was flown in that morning. That aside they do a great job with the resources they have and offer a great selection of sushi and other dishes.

“Sushi Sensation in McCall!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

We have had sushi all over the world and nothing has come close to our hometown bar in San Diego until our experience last night at The Sushi Bar! The fish was FRESH, the rolls creative, imaginative and very flavorful.
The owner, Jordan understated and passionate!
The view of the lake is mesmerizing!
Save room for the honey toast, it was a home run!
We cannot wait to return!

“Great food, fabulous view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We live in California, but travel to McCall a couple of times a year. The sushi that we had was as good as what we get at home. We ordered three different rolls and enjoyed each, and with the second story balcony looking over town and out into the lake - we will definitely be back.

“Better sushi than I've had in Boise in a long time.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

It is so refreshing to find a place like the Sushi Bar in McCall. I feel like the many of the restaurants in that mountain resort town settle for mediocrity, which is very common in towns like McCall. It is also so nice to have the option of sushi as well.
I went into The Sushi Bar on a Wednesday night and sat at the bar. I had some ceviche and the Shrimpzilla roll. Everything was fresh and delicious and I have found that this is consistently the case when I dine there, which is probably two to three times a year. The staff is friendly and efficient. I particulary enjoyed talking to my sushi roller while dining, I believe his name was Chad. He was charming, and engaging and obviously took pride in what he was doing.
I will always make it a point to dine at The Sushi Bar when I am in McCall.

“two time chump”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

twice in the last month we had dinner at the sushi bar. Great food and service but a total disaster on when and if you receive your food. No order to the sequence of your food. If there is more than one person you will not receive you entree at the same time. Would rate it a 5 if they get their timing down.

SushiMcCall, Owner at The Sushi Bar, responded to this review, July 22, 2012
Hello Michael! We are glad you love the food and service but are quite disappointed to read that your food was not delivered in a timely-fashion. Though our restaurant is styled kind of like an Izakaya, it is our policy to serve all apps first, followed by all entrees at the same time, unless people are sharing small plates and sushi, which is often the case, then we will send plates out as they are prepared. This is generally not an issue as we definitely have an order to the sequence. It sounds like maybe the sequence was not right in your case. We would love if you could email us at sushi bar mccall at gmail dot com so that we could ask a couple of follow-up questions and set this right. We of course appreciate when patrons come to us with any complaint as an online review leaves so much mystery. We are left wondering how, why, when and who; and we want people to have nothing less than a wonderful experience at our establishment. We urge you to email us as detailed feedback given to a small business like ours is invaluable. We would love the opportunity to set this right. Thank you.
