Very nice evening and dinner. Service was top notch and we were very well attended to. My only complaint and this is minor is that the tables are very close together which makes moving around somewhat difficult. The food is very good.

Great food, great service. The seats are very tight so if you don’t like close neighbors, this isn’t your place.

Don’t fine before 6 pm. Lights are very bright and the music is nightclub boom music that is horrendous for enjoying a nice meal. Food was good but nothing fantastic. Prices are a little high. The lights were dimmed at 6 pm which was very much appreciated but the music remained loud and disruptive.

Friends Sushi is a small neighborhood sushi restaurant with a significant though not extensive menu. I had the Friends Maki roll and my guest had chicken terriaki bento box. We both enjoyed our selections. The white on white interior ambiance and tightly spaced seating makes you feel like you are almost eating in a communal space. We went in early afternoon and there were few customers. So we were not crowded.

Good choice. Fresh interesting sushi choices and a few Japanese beers. Intimate indoor seating or outside. Would eat here again.

Lo recomiendo por la calidad de la comids. Quizá demasiado ruido y poca luz pero creo que fue ese día debido a las personas de las mesas cercanas.

Very good creative sushi. Bit expensive but portions are generous and the fish was top quality and freshness. Like in so many restaurants in the US, service felt a little pushy, hasted. But otherwise fine.

Very good value however, not good presentation. Much of the fish in the sushi was warm so concerned about freshness. Loud music and I hint of not being very clean.

Great Sushi! It took a little bit to get served. I'm really glad I reserved through OpenTable though. I got a reservation for 15 min from the time I reserved. It was just the right amount of time to walk there from the hotel.

Cute place. Very small. Hipster crowd. No complaints about the Sushi. The smoked salmon sashimi was generously cut and buttery. The nagiri was good too. The appetizer (a warm pork and shrimp roll) was new to me and very nice. The Miso soup was excellent.

Nothing was life changing, but everything was well done and a good value.

Wanted to like this place but at the end of the day it wasn’t worth the money. Someone recommended it but we definitely have different taste buds. Only one of the 3 rolls we ordered was decent. Chairs are definitely too big for the space. Service was good and liked the touch of orange and cucumber in the water. Sorry but I wouldn’t go back.

Sushi rolls were quite good but the tempura was not a light batter but more of a deep fried breading. Alos would be nice to be given plates to eat from even though the server said it was his job to clean up the mess on the table.

Perfect spot to have a light meal while out and about. Our food came out quickly, and staff was courteous. Lychee martini was great for an afternoon sip!
