My hubby and I came here for a date night and it was our first time here. The servers were so attentive, the food was delicious, and people were seated with ample space in between. A fantastic first (but not last) visit! Thank you!

Overall, our experience at JaBistro tonight was disappointing. I had high hopes and made reservations weeks in advance to celebrate my birthday. The sushi made both my husband and I sick all evening. The service was moderate. They are not as accommodating as you would expect when paying $$$$. We were denied the Omakase experience even though the seats at the bar were empty they whole time we were there. After a long a stressful day at work, I was hoping for a pleasant and yummy experience. Unfortunately all I got was disappointment and an upset stomach. I would revert back to Shushin next time.

JaBistro is excellent. The fish was fresh and high quality. The staff was knowledgeable and accomodating. It is certainly expensive, but worth it. I would recommend coming here for special occasions / important meetings. The ambiance is also super accomodating.

The food was great but didn’t quite blow my socks off the same way it used to. Also would’ve liked to have more daily specials to try new things, like they previously did. The service was very solid, the staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable but could’ve used a bit more attention to detail (wrong drink order, knocked a piece of sushi off the plate and left the table dirty after the fact). Other than that, the quality of the food / drink was excellent as usual and they really made the effort to ensure we had a great experience on our anniversary!

Our tab came out to $300. We ordered the lobster sashimi combo, 2 salads and a cod dish and 2 drinks. I understand businesses are hurting with covid, but for the same prices, they have significantly cut down on portion sizes. The lobster sashimi combo, had two of each types of fish (8 -10 types in total), but each piece appeared to be cut in half. Very very low portion sizes. Had to grab a hamburger afterwards, as my husband and I were still very hungry

Food was really good, service was just slow. The waitress didn’t come back for our order until 20 minutes later, then we got one of our sushi orders super late. Even the people who sat 40 minutes after us got their food way before. Other than that, food was amazing. Just wish service was better.

The Sushi market is pretty crowded downtown now and with so many options its hard to stand out. Beside having a roof top patio, it was shady which is good but kinda dreaded due to the concrete walls high above the sitting area.

Food was ok, nothing special or unique, prices are top tier.
