Baba Sushi is one of my favorite restaurants. This is my go to spot for date night and special occasions. The quality of the sushi is top notch. We've never had a sushi roll we never liked there. We took friends from Boston out to eat at Baba and they even said this is the best sushi they have ever had. I recommend making reservations on the weekends.

Ever had one? No you haven't! Not until you've had one here. Far and wide I've yet to find a better oyster shooter than the ones made here.

The menu is delicious. They do an excellent job on presentation and freshness of fish. Their regular menu entrees are great as well. There is something for everyone here.

The staff is friendly, it's not 5 star dining service however the experience is exceptional.

If you find a better oyster shooter let me know!

PS- would love black Marlin sashimi on the menu here.

Title pretty much summarizes everything! The bar is awesome - makes really awesome mixed drinks. I also had their special Bloody Mary - absolutely out of this world! Very nice signature rolls. I also had their sushi deluxe. I've heard a lot about this place and while was in the area decided to stop by with friends. One of few places that open til 1am - was important as we were going there after a venue. Very happy with the service. The only issue was the bathroom: there was only one and it was always locked/busy.

I had heard very good things about Baba Sushi and we gave it a whirl twice.

On a busy Saturday night we were on time with a reservation, and seated immediately. Always nice when a restaurant can not only take a reservation, but can KEEP a reservation as well. No waiting. This is a simple expectation and one lost on many these days.

Sat a the sushi bar. Always prefer that spot and managed to watch the chef's work their magic. Baba does not disappoint in skill of the chefs, creativity, flavor, freshness, variety or simple rather than over done presentation elegance. Clearly all about the food. If you love sushi, you will see the difference in talent level immediately. This is key. From our perspective, it really does blow away our other favorites. We started with one oyster shooter each which were tangy, had a raw tiny egg and was a flavor blast!. A great start. Next we moved on to shumai and sushi spring rolls which were really outstanding. Then on to sushi, with a selection of rolls, nigiri and sashimi. Excellent.

On day two, a weeknight late (Open till 11 a plus), there were only about 9 people dining with some at the bar. We began with oyster shooters again, but this time eel and avocado, spicy tuna rolls, softshell crab roll and yellow tail with scallion were the selections. Have to give mention to the super fresh and delicious ginger and also a great wasabi/horseradish accompaniments. Far better than the stuff you get elsewhere. The service is perfect here, not hovering and very accommodating.

On a side note, it would be nice to have a non-alcoholic beer choice here. So often sushi bars don't seem to get the no alcohol concept, that you can charge the same as a premium beer for a great German N/A beer like: Erdinger, Clausthaller, St. Pauli Girl, Becks etc. (Avoid the swill versions from the big beer US makers that are awful). These are super low cal, super tasty and getting hotter and hotter these days to have on the bar menu.

Yes it is a tight space, yes it is busy on weekends with a wait, but those are not nuisances - Make a reservation. If the food and service are great (and they are), then tight seating becomes part of the Baba experience and sometimes rubbing elbows results in new friends. Baba Sushi is currently that by which others should be measured. Go.
