We love this restaurant, especially its weekday buffet. All you can eat buffet with premium sushi offerings, and cooked foods too. The waitstaff is fantastic, and the Sushi chefs, and even the kitchen chef. They use real crab, no imitation junk served here. They serve the best tea in town, and its an endless serving at no extra charge. They... More

This is probably the oldest sushi restaurant in Milwaukee. It has been here before all the others. The sushi is fresh. They have a large sushi variety. The type of sushi is more traditional than a new restaurant that has crazy rolls. It is a bit pricey even from what I have had in other larger cities in the country.

I have gotten sick the last two times after dining here. The men's restroom odor is horrific and the food had a problem. Within an hour I was sick and spent the rest of my evening in my bathroom at home. Clean this place up.

My husband and I went to Izumi's before a movie at the Oriental theater. We allowed a full hour for dinner. Too bad that wasn't enough and we had to wolf down our sushi in less than 10 minutes in order to make our movie! What a shame to have to eat such delicious fish in speed-eating style. They appeared... More

Of all the sushi places in downtown Milwaukee, this one rates way above the rest. I've eaten here many times and have never had anything less than excellent. The sashimi is very fresh and the portions are large. The rolls are well prepared and the chef doesn't use fillers like panko crumbs. The crab is real crab, not the imitation... More

Coming from California where the sushi is often better than that in Japan, we did not expect much from seafood delivered to the land of the bass, pike, and muskie. We were very pleasantly surprised by the food quality at Izumi's. Rumored to be the only Japanese owned sushi place in Milwaukee, the fish was fresh and generally flavorful. The... More

We came here for Valentine's Day date night for the first time. Our food was great. The sushi is definitely comparable to other places we've been but the sake selection was better tha most. They also had sake sampler which was cool. We plan on coming back with a larger group.

Being Asian myself, I've eaten a lot of Asian food across the US and in Asia. Izumi's has good Japanese food for the mid west. A great bonus for the area they are in is that they actually have a parking lot. There are a lot of restaurants in Milwaukee in the same neighborhood and it's mostly street parking so... More

We've used Izumi for carry out several times. Having eaten at many Asian restaurants I can only rate Izumi as average. While the sushi can be good the other dishes are passable but nothing to rave about. Why do we go back? not many alternatives for Asian in the neighborhood

The food is pricey and the quality of food and the environment isn't that great compared to Fujiyama.
