We found the restaurant on TripAdvisor and decided to go for dinner based on the reviews. The menu had a great variety. Prices were what you would expect for sushi in this area of Capitola. Service was good considering how crowded it was. We had no problem with the wait as we could slow down and just enjoy each others... More

We have been to Sushi Garden several times for dinner and always have been pleased and satisfied. First and foremost, every dish we have ordered has been delicious and beautifully presented. The menu is out of this world, offering a full array of sushi and sashimi dishes plus a seemingly endless selection of rolls. I love the combination dinner while... More

Mediocre food and service. The tempura was greasy and the salmon overcooked. The box provided at lunch comes with a limp salad and dreadful sushi pieces. While the lunch was only $12, cheap for a sushi place, the quality was really lacking. Also, because I had been there before, I knew to ask for the edamame free intro to the... More

Not the freshest or best, but reliable and with ample portions at good prices. Very popular. Best to come early for lunch. Their best is the bento box with many choices and too much to eat.

Both the sushi and the service at this place were excellent! I met my son here for dinner on a Tuesday evening around 6:30 and the place was packed. I was kind of surprised because this place has been around for awhile and I haven't heard much about it. We had a short wait before getting seated by the wonderful... More

I have eaten in the restaurant part of this wonderful Japanese Restaurant many times. In the last year or so, they expanded and added a nice Sake Bar in a separate room at one end of the restaurant. There are big screens televisions to watch sports! I am always on the look out for friendly places to watch hockey and... More

Service was prompt and professional. Sushi, miso, sashimi were delicious. Place is medium sized and has a bar with tvs after you pass tables. Overall a very good experience.

It had been a long time since I ate at Sushi Garden. It used to be a favorite place to go with my family in the mid-80s. This restaurant has been around a long time. Set in the upper Capitola Village area up near the freeway, it has easy parking. It is located in a business plaza and at night... More
