I tried this place for the first time today for lunch. It was ok. Average for Japaneese around jacksonville. The California Roll was great, the soup not so much.

This is my new and favorite Sushi bar to go to here in Jacksonville. I've moved here from the West Coast having lived in Hawaii and originally from San Diego, so sushi I am very experienced in and this place is amazing. They have authentic sushi chef's that make so many different styles of sushi with bursting flavors. Very fresh seafood and beautiful presentations. I took some pictures and I can't really say I have a favorite cause it was all good. The Sexy Lady Grill although seemed to be a favorite to the rest of our family there with its unique blend of Tobiko for the right smoke like flavor to this roll. We also were served this delicious non-alcoholic beverage called Aloe. Right after we topped it off with Red Bean and Green Tea Mochi. If you are not into the sushi side of food they serve a variety of cooked and tastey dishes as well, such as Naba Yaki Udon soup or Chicken Teriyaki. The time of our visit we were seated promptly and our food arrived in a timely manner. This is a smaller yet beautiful setting inside very clean and friendly staff. Well worth the visit. Thank You Wasabi's our family definitely will be back!

My husband and I are new in town and stopped by last Saturday. It is a fairly new restaurant and kind of in a weird place so it wasnt very busy. There were about 3 to go customers throughout the course of our meal. The menu was varied and we had a hard time deciding on which rolls to pick The waitress told us about the chefs specials and which of the rolls were her favorite. In conversation we told her we recently moved to town and were dissapointed with the sushi at Shogun. (we had a favorite sushi restaurant back in MD that I worked at )
There are only about a dozen tables in the restaurant each with a bowl of fresh flowers for decoration. Jazz music played loud enough so you could recognize what song was being played but not too loud that we couldnt talk.
When our sushi arrived it was beautifully decorated. Too pretty to eat...almost! Our favorite roll was the Jacksonville...Lobster tempura with spicy tuna and avacado. YUM! Next time we will be more adventurous than the spider roll and shrimp tempura.
I had green tea ice cream for dessert and the waitress brought out a dish of fresh watermelon as well. She was friendly and asked our names so she could remember us for next time. We can't wait to go back!
