Nice local place, friendly, good service,lovely touches like free appetizers, but, good, not great, food. The fish was fresh, but not much of it. Everything was OK, but lacked "zip".

If you want a fancy Americanized restaurant with designer rolls and a 10-page menu, look somewhere else. Yamaguchi is for people who want excellent sushi, sashimi and cooked foods like katsu, negamyaki, tempura and teriyaki steak, fish or chicken. The decor is simple, but are you there for the food or the furniture? It's true that the regulars get special treatment; the good news is that if you've been there twice, they treat you like a regular. The wait staff is attentive, friendly and efficient. Reservations are always a good idea.

This has been a regular place for our family for years. We've gotten to know Mrs Yamaguchi, the owner, who greets is warmly at every visit. She's a lovely person. Her husband is a sushi chef and the food is well prepared and fresh. They suffered a fire a few years ago but are reopened in new location on the same block.

Miss Yamaguchi and her staff provide the ultimate in small town intimate service. This is a Local establishment where the patrons are often no less than 50% Japanese. Being a regular is a must. You are often treated to complimentary edamane and potentially other appetizer treats. Mr. Yamaguchi is the head sushi chef and takes care that the quality control is of the utmost highest standard. The food is delicious and consistently reliable. the greeting and hospitality are warm and accommodating. My family is know by name (Ivy-san) and we are all welcomed with friendly greetings. XOXO we appreciate you Ms. Yamaguchi.

The new dining room for the restaurant looks like a cafeteria, and the service is slow now, especially on weekends. However, sushi and sashimi are still reliably good, albeit pricy. But then, you get what you pay for. This is still my first choice restaurant for sushi In this area of Long Island.
