Love this place. Sushi is always fresh and delicious. Sake is ordered warm and arrives at the perfect temperature. It's always lively and live the decor. If it's your birthday they will even sing to you.

I really love the sushi here. I just wish the owners had thought about the customers a little more when planning the layout of the restaurant. The lobby area is rather large while the seating areas are super small.. they cramped so many tables right up next to each other it makes it really uncomfortable to get around. I will... More

Incredible sushi! Nice atmosphere and such a creative menu! Everything is absolutely delicious! It's a major hot spot, so it gets jammed with people on Friday and Saturday nights. Anytime after 6 you will be waiting: no reservations on weekends. But, people are always willing to wait up to an hour and more. They still manage great service and don't... More

Our party of four (myself, my boyfriend, his brother and wife) enjoyed a birthday dinner. We had a slight wait due to requesting a booth (this was on a Wednesday night) but had excellent service. We ordered the salad with pear and goat cheese (not the typical salad - this one had cucumber ribbons, and deep fried goat cheese, candied... More

We tried this place for the first time, and were let down. We were sat down at a dirty table, and when asked for it to be cleaned, had someone walk up and take a rag to about a third of it. We had no silverware or napkins. We didn't get timely refills. Half of our party was served food... More

The sushi here is fantastic. The hibachi is good. The only real drawback is the service is sometimes either very brusque or nonexistent. Not always, just sometimes. At other times the service is excellent.

Arrived at 1:40 with my son, stood there for 10 minutes with no acknowledgement, several associates walked by and we never got a look or greeting, guess they don't like parties of 2.

We came here for brunch on Sunday. We had a sushi plate which tasted good. The fish was fresh. The eel rice bowl was ok, but the sauce wasn't a traditional unagi sauce. The miso soup was excellent however. Tempura was crisp but there was no grated daikon in the sauce. Service was excellent, our server brought the dishes and... More

I've been to Sake Blue 3 times now while traveling on business and each time has been consistently excellent! Their staff is friendly and efficient, the sushi/sashimi menu is huge, and the quality of the food is over the top great, with beautiful craftsmanship in their plate presentations. They have a very good affordably priced wine list and a good... More
