Japanese
For over 25 years we have had the honor of spreading some of the most traditional Japanese dishes from "izakaya" style bites to a full on sushi bar, the experience at Hana is a bit out of the ordinary but we assure you that the flavor of the food hits home for anyone who has been exposed to real Japanese food culture.

While offering the most extensive sake list & the origin of sake tasting rooms in California, Danny Pitassy - Beverage Director/Sake Sommelier - will present each different sake with it's own unique and distinct flavor notes in a fashion that even as a beginner, you would be able to come up with your own tasting notes the next time around. Most importantly, behind the sushi bar will be chefs that perfected their craft in Tokyo to meticulously translate the Kantō flavors of Chef Owner Ken Tominaga here in Northern California.

Hana is always great. Wow made the mistake of ordering two bento box dinners, which was way too much food. Next time we'll do maybe one to share, plus a few nigiri. We've been going there for years and have never had a bad bite of food.

The food is always outstanding, really stands apart from most dining experiences. The ambience is nice, fine, perhaps not quite up to the food. The service is fine, attentive, though I never very warm or personable. In any case, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

Exceptional!

As an experienced home chef I am often disappointed with dining at Michelin starred or highly rated restaurants. Overpriced and overrated food, snotty service, and minuscule portions are the norm from my experience. Not so with Hana!

Great and courteous service. Server answered all our questions about menu options, even about restaurant’s background. Courses were served in a relaxed and well paced manner. Water glasses were filled and request for more ginger was completed with a smile. Very professional and friendly service.

Every dish was exceptional and overall this is the best Japanese meal I and my wife have ever tasted. Being that we are from the San Francisco Bay Area that says a lot.

The sashimi platter was fresh, tasty, and filled with quality cuts of fish from Japan. The rice on the sushi rolls were so fresh and the fresh crab, soft shell crab and ebi in the rolls really shined.

The house salad was one of our favorites. It was so fresh, light, and so delectable with a soy vinegrette.

We shared a bento box heaping with airy tempura, grilled wagyu beef, grilled salmon and prawn. Outstanding value and each entree stood on its own.

The ginger crème brûlée and black sesame ice cream were simple, delicious, and a wonderful cap to an incredible meal.

Our server acknowledged our anniversary celebration with two complimentary glasses of sake and the ice cream. We thoroughly enjoyed the elegant and peaceful surroundings, coupled with stellar service, and oh the food.

We have no qualms about driving an hour to dine here again. Bravo!

I really like eating at Hana, although this time the service was a bit off, in the manner that food and beverages were served and removed. Please, please, do not reach across me to stack dirty dishes from my friend's place setting. Go to each person's place, and remove their plates, so that their dirty plates don't have to sail past my face. Also, when you are serving, do the same thing....serve each person from their spot, not across my body and face. I found it offensive that other people's food and the server's arm and hand were right in front of my face. It only adds 10 seconds to go to each customer's side to serve them, and, remove their dirty plates. Thank you.

This is the very best of Sonoma County's sushi restaurants. The food is terrific--fresher than most other sushi restaurants. The ambience is excellent--must better than "hole-in-the-wall" sushi restaurants. The service from Danny (Sake Sommelier, bartender and server) is first rate. Danny made upgraded our dinner to an A+.

The food and service were amazing. We did feel a bit rushed though. Things could have been brought out one at a time so we could savor each. In and out in an hour for an expensive meal seems too fast.

The food was fresh, well prepared & delicious. Our server was kind & knowledgeable. He guided us to an outstanding assortment of perfect bites. We were never rushed and enjoyed a lovely evening chatting with good friends. The octopus was prepared perfectly & the live scallop was great. The Sake menu was extensive and we enjoyed what our waiter recommended.

Hana is the best Sushi in the North Bay. Definitely worth the money for such high quality food. They have also really made the space COVID safe with private dining spaces both indoors and outdoors. We will definitely return for more amazing culinary adventures.

Such a delicious meal, a beautiful selection of raw and cooked items, tiny salty fried fish and delicate chawan mushi custard, excellent sashimi and cured saba. A romantic meal to share. Some people may not like raw seafood but ANYone would love the crisp fried & grilled dishes and the vegetables. Everyone should go. Heavenly.
