I've been waiting for 20 minutes to be seated. It took another 20 minutes for me to understand, that no one is going to take my order, so I just ran out of there. Never again.

Very delicious chirashi and excellent value on their bento boxes. Hatcho located at a nice strip mall across an apartment complex. The owner of Hatcho is an elderly Japanese lady who always mind the sushi bar. She is extremely pleasant and helpful.

I’ve been to Hatcho several times over the past couple of years, so it’s about time that I wrote a review for this great Japanese restaurant that serves traditional Japanese food at both lunch and dinner. In the past I’ve gone for lunch with colleagues, but in May 2015 I finally went for dinner with a friend to sample more... More

I lived close by and mostly frequent during dinner hours. Linda and Rocky are two of my favorite people while I was living in Santa Clara. They are amazingly genuine and down-to-earth. After a couple of meals there, I just gave up looking at the menu and just asked them: "what's good tonight?" It's always a nice surprise of comfort... More

I went to Hatcho many times. Though i'm. Or sure how authentic their cuisine i, the food is good. The place looks a bit like a home style dinner place and does not offer many tables. They are closed Sundays which i forget at times. Price level is fair.

Avoid the Kaiseki. We paid 150 dollars each for their Kaiseki and it was terrible. Lots of sloppy food on dirty plates. The sushi course was combined with sashimi course and there was way too much of it. The rice was overflavored and overcooked. I couldn't believe that they called this Kaiseki and charged that kind of money. I will... More

Nice atmosphere and good food. However, it took us over 30 minutes to get someone to take our order. The good was delivered in about 30 minutes and there was plenty, they were flexible in adjusting they're fixed price menu to accommodate us. All in all over 2 hours doesn't put us in a position to return.

I went here with our Japanese staff. He comes here every his business trip in USA. The manager of this store is Japanese. We can place order by Japanese. Very quiet atmosphere and good taste. I can't eat such delicious sliced raw fish easily even in Japan. Very Good!
