The last couple times we visited we were disappointed by the wait staff and food.
We have had some great nights here enjoying the food and drinks. The last couple times the sushi was not up to par and the wait staff was lacking. We would sit without water or drinks for very long periods and the food would be cold and soggy.

How often do you see the owner chef with knife in hand, preparing dishes alongside the staff. Not often enough - whether it's sushi or anything else. I for one am tired of the celebrity chefs full of hype and vapor. I want a great chef preparing dishes he/she is proud of. That's Bob at Bob San.

If you like elaborate, imaginative maki rolls, what I call pseudo sushi, you can get it Bob San in spades. But it you're a true sushi lover, just park yourself in front of Bob at the counter and tell him "omakase" and let him take care of you. Don't fret. Trust the chef to guide you through the journey.

I have eaten sushi in many different restaurants. It was not worthy eating in this place. I liked the neighborhood. Service average, food average, pricy check $45 per person.

Not a bad little joint. The prices are right and the service is good. But the menu and sushi is only average...which isn't to say it's bad, just not anything to write home about. The BYOB thing is cool, but a $12 corking fee is pretty crazy.
