Didn’t feel hygiene enough to dine in. Should know that dishwasher isn’t a magic that cleans everything throughly when stains are clearly wipeable even with a tissue. Menu is like a book and therefore unsatisfactory food quality is expected.

Pretty good Korean made Japanese food. A bit expensive for the quantity and quality of food. Service was pretty good. Very nice interior décor.

Most of the foods were fresh and well prepared. But Scallop and king mushroom dishes missing the king mushroom. I could not find where they used king mushroom.
Good service.

Food is very fresh, beautifully plated and delicious! Service is fast!

The only thing was the scallops were a little over done and a little too spicy.

Food not worth it for price paid, ambience/decor very nice though. Service staff needed more training - did not know menu, and were openly scolded by chef/supervisor at front of house.

tldr - looks fancy, not worth price, poor service.

While pricey, the service, food, ambience and safety protocols were excellent. We really enjoyed the experience. The seafood Okonomi Yaki was a treat. We loved this dish when we visited Japan and it equally good at Seiza.

Delicately delicious with a wide assortment of 'fresh' fish all beautifully plated and exquisite to taste. Along with Seiza's aesthetic surroundings and quiet attentive service they have become our go to for a fine dining experience of reasonably priced Japanese cuisine

Made a reso for 8:15, arrived and they told us last call for food and drinks was 8:30.
Ordered red wine, they only had 1/3 of a glass left in the whole place, therefore charged me $8 instead of $12 - yes, thank you so much for the 1/3 full glass of the bottom of the bottle house wine for not 1/3 of the price.
Came and put our bill down as we were in the middle of eating.
Then proceeded to bring the card machine over as we were... still eating, telling us we need to pay right away so they can 'close out the system.'
Won't see ya again, Seiza.

The okonomiyaki was delicious and so was the eggplant with sweet miso sauce. The salad with thready French fries on top looked cool but was disappointing. 4.5/5

The quality of food has gone downhill since our last visit before COVID. overpriced for what you get. Their pressed sushi fell apart and the sashimi cake really fell apart once we start working on it. The Aburi had too much sauce and also fell apart. The open patio door created a cold draft into the restaurant. Their draft 14oz beer is less than 14oz in actual volume. The service was good.

Our server was not knowledgeable at all this evening. He didn’t know the difference between Don Katsu and Katsu Don and then brought over the wrong dish to us. When we told him the error, he refused to change it for us. The pork turned out to be extremely dry. Such terrible service compared to our first time visiting this venue just a few days ago. Truly disappointed.

Compared to the abundant amount of sushi and Japanese cuisine places in Vancouver, this newly opened eatery does not have a fancy signature dish, rather it has a wide selection of authentic Japanese food while in mid range price that deserves a visit.
