Tops'l opened in July right above The Cask and Schooner and it is a winner. They have an impressive cocktail list. Their sushi chef was hired directly from Japan and he does an incredible job and serves the best and freshest. Raw bar and "more traditional" items are available. Wish they were also open for lunch.

Always willing to find a good sushi place, the wait to be seated was too long, after ordering we waited and waited to receive our meals, especially the sushi. The food was okay.

We stopped here the other night thinking we were in the mood for sushi and once we arrived we realized we didn't want sushi but there were enough other things to please - I had soba noodles with tempura - excellent broth, and light batter on tempura; date had their version of Caesar salad with tempura - enjoyed it a great deal. Also had a reasonable flight of saki's - the nigori - excellent. We will come back as the sushi looked fresh and appealing. Only complaint was a bit of a rush job towards end of meal - even though restaurant was nearly empty.

If you need your hit of sushi this is the place, the only place, to go. It has all the standard rolls and nigri you expect, well prepared. The rolls are the perfect size and do not have too much filler rice as you can sometimes find. The rainbow roll was very good but it was a little skimpy on raw fish. The spicy tuna was delicious as were the tuna wontons. Broccoli Rabe was too tough to eat. The seaweed salad was a treat, unusual preparation and beautiful presentation. A bonus was a creative cocktail menu. Service was quite slow but very friendly. All in all, a great find.
