“Japanese Fusion At Its Best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

Sakana offers many wonderful dishes and the sushi is done right!
The Lunch specials are a good deal, you get soup and salad with certain entrees and the price is right. It is everyone's favorite restaurant in Rockland.

“Very good sushi. great soup”

A little on the pricy side, but the sushi was very good. The Miso soup was also very tasty. Not too salty, just right. I would definetely go back there

“Excellent Food, Fun Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2012

My fiance and I have dined here twice in the last two months. Sakana is now our go-to place for sushi. The first time, we went with friends who raved about this place. We weren't disappointed in the least! The sushi was excellent-- both times we went we tried completely different rolls, and they were all exceptional. The sushi is fresh and the selection is huge, so it would be hard to get bored with so many options! Also, we appreciated the creativity in the menu. In addition to the sushi, we also had the edamame (hard to mess up!), miso soup, and the shumai appetizer. All delicious!

Another bonus is the drink menu. For $7, they give you a hefty glass of wine, which I thought was a great deal. The menu also has several interesting cocktails, but we haven't tried them yet. I did notice a difference in the timing of the meals both times we were there. The first time we went with another couple, and it took a long time for the sushi to come out. However, the place was crowded and we were enjoying each others' company. The second time, the food was out so quickly. There were only two of us and the restaurant wasn't as crowded. We entered the restaurant, ate and paid in under 40 minutes. I also really enjoy the ambiance of the restaurant. It has a hip vibe to it. I like the dim lighting and layout.

Both times we were there, we saw a mix of couples, groups, and families. Everyone seemed to be enjoying their dining experience. If you are looking for quality sushi for a reasonable price, try Sakana. You won't be disappointed!

“Food great, Service and price not so great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2011

I have been a fan of Sakana for many years, however I was always extremely disappointed by the service. The waitresses are rude and RUSH you so much you can hardly enjoy your meal. Since Kumo in New City opened, we havent gone back to Sakana, except recently and we think the sushi has actually improved, the waitresses should get trained on how to treat customers or go to Kumo or Wasabi in New City and take a lesson from the waitstaff there.
