    The food is delicious and the staff is great! They have a large amount of gluten free items on the menu, especially sushi which is very hard to find anywhere! This is one of our regular spots that we love!

    The sushi and sashimi are of high quality, but I am confused with why a legitimate Japanese restaurant wouldn’t use real wasabi. Instead, Elite Five serves horse radish dyed with food color. I think it is a terrible decision by the management. Hopefully real wasabi will be served from now on. Thanks!

    Haven't been to Elite Five since the pandemic started. It was very busy with customers and the only issue we had was at the start of the meal. The gyoza came out ice cold and we returned it. The second time it came out it was luke warm and the pork was raw... They took it back. Our main orders were great and they gave us a desert on the house. Just didn't expect that the chef's would actually plate cold dumplings, uncooked for the customers. hope it doesn't happen again

    It was a first date and as we were getting to know each other we took a while to order. The staff was awesome and patient with us and allowed us to have us much time as we needed. I think we were the last people out of the door, and we appreciate it.
