It's rare to find a place where every single dish you have keeps topping the next one that arrives. Fortunately for me, and my tummy, I think I've found one!

This is a regular spot for me and my friends. The bartenders and owner are hospitable and friendly. Their specialty cocktails are delicious and the spicy edamame and fusion roll are a must!

My friend found this place on Yelp one day when we couldn't decide on a place to eat. We started ordering sake, toro, a few rolls.. fusion and this double spicy roll....spicy edamame goes great with beer and sake. The sake was excellent and they good selection for you to choose from. Fusion roll is shrimp tempura I believe wrapped with scallop... it just melts in your mouth...oh yes the toro melts in your mouth too. I forgot what's inside the double spicy but it's topped off with a slice of jalapeno, tobiko...if you like spicy this is your dish! we ended leaving 2 hours later very happy with a $120 bill which isn't bad at all.

Fast forward 2 years later... I'm still coming to this restaurant regularly. They've added a lot of new items to their menu since then but I think we've tried every item on the menu and haven't had a bad meal so far! Parking in this area is difficult but not impossible if you're patient.

It's a great spot if you stop off in the Marina to grab a snack and some $3 sake bombs before you head off into the Marina to bar hop. You'll find the bartender Jacky very friendly and occasionally you'll end up doing sake bombs with the owner Fred too. We usually sit at the bar... not sure why but it's funner when you can interact with the bartender. I agree with Candice S. it does seem to be a date place maybe because of how romantic the interior seems with all the dim lighting. Date place or not.... it's a fun restaurant and a place where you can expect to always have a good japanese meal. That's all that matters right?

A great place to start the night - couple of sushi rolls, some sake, some beer - and you are set for a night of debauchery in the marina. We keep coming back.

The atmosphere is nice. The food at Mas Sake (around the corner) is better, but this place is quieter and easier to get into on a weekend.

Had a really good time. We loved the stylish ambience and the different areas--sake bar, sushi bar, etc. with just enough noise. Our order came at a good pace. Eating out is about being with friends and spending time together. Really

I can not recommend Yuzu to anyone. Appetizers came at the end of the meal. Wait staff brought water only after 40 minutes. Service was deplorable. Drink orders never arrived. Food was mediocre at best.

The Sat night in March '06 that my friends & I went, service was terrible. You shouldn't wait 10-15min to be seated when there aren't other parties & there are at least 3 open, clean/set tables. There was a wait for the menu, a long wait

We love Yuzu's interior - with its high ceiling, ultra modern but comfortably chic interior, it reminds us of the hip eateries in Nolita or Meatpacking District in NYC!
The sushi & sashimi are exquisite - our favorite is the Himachi
