This is a great sushi place, the sashimi was very good, it showed the quality of the products used. You can see the sushi being prepared with attention to detail. It was so good that, in 2 days, we ate there twice.

Went to Yanagi to celebrate 2 birthdays. Excellent service and food. Staff is very attentive. Great selection and the sushi was so yummy. Try the baked green mussel appetizer. They were great. Can't wait to go back.

Mediocre sushi + Terrible Service + High Prices = A restaraunt I won't return to. Its too bad, because they have a great location and views. But hey, some people like warm beer.

I loved the tuna tataki, one of my favorite dishes in Japanese food. Service is very fast and sushi pieces are huge. Probably a bit too much.
