From the team behind RAMEN-SAN, SUSHI-SAN serves up fresh fish with fresher beats. With crispy
handrolls, bincho-tan roasted meats and ice-cold beer; this is not your typical sushi joint. Come in and see for yourself.

I really like Sushi-San, it wasn't my first time here and it seems to get better with each visit. I would definitely recommend it as a fun place to go with a group or even on a date.

Great music (90s and 2000s hip hops) and food was excellent.
I was amazed with how quickly the food was served after we ordered.

Highly recommend.

They have very good sushi, and the drinks were creative and tasty. The service was very good as well. The seating was uncomfortable, hard wooden benches with no back to rest on, and it was VERY loud in the restaurant.

My boyfriend and I had a great dinner at SUSHI-SAN on Saturday night. The sushi was extremely fresh and delicious. We had the Spicy Tuna, Wagyu Tartare, Tempura Shrimp Maki, and S&P Chicken. We both ordered the Cilantro-Lime Margarita. The menu is creative and fun, and the service excellent. We were seated right on time for our 7:15 pm reservation even though the bar and restaurant were filled. I highly recommend it for a night out. Cheers and Happy New Year!

Came here for NYE. Have been here once before. Ended up being 30 minutes late due to travel issues, but we’re seated right away at the bar! Good was great! We ordered two miso soup, the coal roasted king crab, and the Megatron. Then food came out quickly. The staff was very pleasant and did a great job removing items as we finished them. Overall, a great experience and we will be back!

It is a very nice restaurant to go and have dinner with friends !
The only think I didn’t like is that the chefs that are making the food are not wearing gloves ! I know is a sushi place but come on ... one of the chefs had a finger injured and he was making sushi like that ! Attention to those details people !
The service was definitely incredible !

Food was delicious, and service was great. Very attentive staff. I liked the selection and the dishes were very fresh and tasty.
There design is cool (hipster-ish) with same kind of music.
Only thing is that entrees are medium sized, I'd love to get a little more for the price

Sushi San provided a vibrant and enthralling experience! Creative and colorful cocktails with fresh sushi. Stand outs were the sweet potato fries, scallops, crunchy avocado roll and a special spicy salmon and ginger roll. No question would come back with more friends.

Not children friendly. Made reservation for 3, since it was my wife, our newborn, and I. They seated us in a cramped two person table, despite the fact that we made a reservation for 3 since we had an infant with us and needed the extra space. Luckily the the women at the table next to us were nice and allowed us to squeeze our baby carrier on the shared bench, but it was incredibly uncomfortable and awkward. After the nice women seated next to us left, another couple was walked over by the host to be seated next to us, once they saw us sitting there cramped with our baby carrier, they awkwardly stood there then decided they were not interested in sitting at the table next to us and asked the host to be seated elsewhere. Again, incredibly awkward. Made us feel like we were inconveniencing other customers, as soon as we got our food, we quickly ate, asked for the bill, and immediately left after paying. Staff was polite, but not helpful nor accommodating. Never again.

The sushi is very good. One quibble: the menu makes is difficult to order. They seem to have created sushi packages that are price-segmenting the menu vs. making it easier to order for a group. Also annoying: you have to order omakase in advance, but there is no prompt to do so when you book (at least via OpenTable) so if you don't arrange that ahead of time you're SOL.

Ambience and service are so-so.
