I've eaten at Hokkaido many times and always find the food wonderful. I usually get the Maki Roll Dinner--a special that starts with Miso Soup (a wonderful Miso Soup) and includes a California Roll, a Tuna Roll and a Salmon Roll. It's been a wonderful,...More

Sushi is excellent however the Fried Rice with Salmon is addictive and the noodle soup is magic. I like the Soba Noodles. Service and atmosphere is top notch. Their green tea is sweet and ethereal. I love this place.

This was our favorite place years ago. But unfortunately, it has changed for the worst! Teriyaki chicken was burnt; the cucumber salad was overly sweet; the house salad came with the worst ginger dressing I ever tasted: it was very liquidy, with a mayonnaise like...More

There are hot dishes from the kitchen that will delight as well as a wide range of sushi and sashimi. The variety and inventiveness of the sushi rolls is dazzling. The staff is friendly and attentive and the whole place just radiates warmth.

Completely overrated. People around here must be desperate for sushi. Average at best. Go to Kingston if you can to a couple of places that serve much better sushi.
