This is a small place and hard to get a table, so make reservations. But absolutely amazing!! Right downtown. GO!

Beware this place is where you will drop the most money. Worth every penny. You don't come every night but for a hot date night or just special occasions this place is the best sushi you will ever eat. Don't miss out.

This small restaurant offers some of the best sushi I have eaten, and I have enjoyed excellent sushi in several countries. Make a reservation as there are only a few tables. The food is artfully and creatively prepared--and it's delicious.

One Time I called and the chef said that they would not be open that particular Saturday night because the fish that they had recieved was not fresh. So despite the loss of money their commitment to excellence was greater.

Sushi in the Raw is popular with locals and it can be hard to get in. But the experience is less than stellar. Poor lighting and small tables make it difficult to see the food and enjoy the meal. Explanations of the dishes are insufficient....More

Sushi in the raw is hands down my favorite sushi I've eaten! The sea trout shooters are my favorite things there. All of the dishes are very fresh and oh so good. Just know that you will need reservations well in advance or you can...More
