We wanted to try something different in OTR and stopped here for happy hour 4-6 pm on Saturday. Great half priced menu and drinks. But the first Sapporo drafts tasted like Millers. The waiter apologized and we split a poke bowl and a couple of rolls. We enjoyed the poke but the rolls were loosely prepared and dry. My husband... More

We had the pork belly bun which was very delicious, the Kaze salad was okay and the half sushi rolls were tasty. The service was very good.

We arrived for our reservation a little before time. Luckily, because the valet parking people were busy shooing non-valet parkers away from the spot in front of their stand. After a few minutes of explanation, we convinced the man at the stand that we really did want valet. After that, things went smoothly until we were ready to leave. Anyway,... More

My wife and I have heard many good things about this restaurant and went there with another couple. While it is a beautiful atmosphere, it is too dark, in my opinion. The service was great and the food was very good. The main emphasis is fancy sushi and it you love that, you will love this restaurant. I will not... More

Went with family (7 total) including a 3 yr old and 1 yr old - food was really good. We got a mix of things including the pork ramen, yakutiri, sushi. Cool and hip for adults and accommodating for the little ones. Will go back.

I meet people here for drinks in the courtyard from time to time and it is always very enjoyable. I like when they have music streaming through the courtyard, but that is not always the case. A couple weeks ago we ordered food too. The sushi is delicious; very unique and flavorful rolls. I was not impressed with the fried... More

Very good Japanese restaurant. They have bowls that have innovative ingredients, and that are very filling. They have varieties of sushi rolls and sashimi. This place is popular and so is Vine St. I recommend having reservations on the weekend.

Kaze is a great place to take friends for a night out. Great food and atmosphere. The OTR roll and Ramen bowl were out of this world.

I've been to Kaze a number of times now. If you're going during their lunch time or happy hour I HIGHLY recommend it--it's a great value and good environment. I'm going to break from the norm here, though, and say that I don't recommend their sushi. I'm an avid sushi fan, and their sushi is probably among my least favorite.... More
