“Great, great sushi!”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

The original restaurant we were going to was closed so we ended up at Harney. Located in the Old Town area there's plenty to do before heading in for some of the best sushi that I have had in the US. The server was THE most knowledgeable about the different fish etc, as well as their policy of SUSTAINABLE food only! A little pricey but the portions are good. Also, if you are a party of ~7 or 8, you can have a semi-private booth which was the perfect environment for us to catch up with friends in SD.

“Fantastic Sushi, Sustainability efforts, fun little hideaway”
Reviewed April 1, 2012


Orange crush roll was a new experience. Food and service fantastic. Appreciated that sustainability is a focus. Quality excellent. Ambiance less than desirable, but really who cares when the sushi is that good. Got the chef's choice, and where it is usually stuffed with the non-sellers, this was all high quality, great sushi! A definitely match! Only wish they were open earlier...

“Awesome + 1”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

What a great place. The service was spectacular. Which was only superceded by the phenomenal sushi. Menu was wide ranging and the staff very knowledgable. The ambiance was great; hip but tasteful. If you're looking for a nice evening out and have a craving for excellent sushi, Harney's is your place. Five stars and two thumbs up. I/We will definitely return every time we're in San Diego.

“hidden treasure”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

creative and delicious food at amazing prices. The rolls are fresh and very good. we are sushi lover and are very picky - we went back the next day and would have gone back again but our flight was that day. i will be dreaming about the wilted mushroom salad and lightning roll for months to come. The service is fantastic. The seating choices in and out are simply fabulous - with two small outside patios with lots of greenery - it is a little oasis and a very special treat. Don't miss it - it is in old town which has lots of Mexican restaurants - so if you love sushi or Japanese and want superior food - go here!
