Success! Thanks for posting your review of Sushi Ota. You’ve done the world some good today.

sushi results are in

Went to a new sushi place called Sushi Ota in Pacific Beach. 1st, if you don't have a reservation be ready to be ushered out the door as fast as you can eat your meal. Even though our waitress was very nice to us, she was the only one. We arrived at 5 pm and since we didn't have reservations the lady at the door asked that if we were seated could we be gone by 6 pm. Of course I lied and said yes just to sample what p... view more

Will never get my business!

I have no idea how the food is because despite having made reservations a week in advance for a birthday dinner, confirming the day off, arriving 10 minutes early, they were not prepared and kept seating parties that arrived after us! We asked three times what was going on, each time we were told they were very sorry, but it would be another 5 to 10 minutes! No explanation as to why others were being seated before us... view more

Good food, quick service

Went for first time for lunch on a weekday. It was impossible to find parking, even in the lot behind the strip. Once I got to the restaurant, I was promptly seated. The service was very quick, and impeccible. I tried several pieces of sushi and a roll. The sushi was slightly disappointing, after all the raves this place has had in the past (and after having eaten at Sasabune in Honolulu last month). The sake a... view more

Avoid due to rude service!!!

The food was average, nothing special. However, the staff was most unprofessional. Our group of 6 arrived for our reservation on time a 6:00 PM on a Wednesday. The staff immediately warned us that we had to be finished by 7:30, or else!!! You would think they were giving it away for free. Also, they kept on forgetting items we ordered. If we would have had a bad memory, we probably would have never received all of ou... view more

Good sushi!

This place is crowded and I agree with some of the other posters, waiting for a table even with a reservation can be very annoying. However the sushi and sashimi is great!

very disappointed

Took my wife here after reading rave reviews on this site. First impression upon entering the restaurant was very good. It was very crowded and full of Japanese customers, all good signs. What I noticed as we were waiting to check in for our reservation was that Japanese people definately got preferential treatment. I was in line just to let the front know that we had reservations (not even waiting for our table... view more

Rude Service, Bad Fish

May be these guys are just uneven. May be these guys are just full of themselves. Either way, I had a horrible experience there. The sashimi did not taste fresh. The servers were surly and seemed put out that we were not people they recognized. Too bad for them. We had just moved to San Diego from San Francisco. We love sushi and were looking forward to Sushi Ota because it was on the top five sushi restaurant... view more

Good Sushi

Don't let this place fool you. Though it's tucked behind a convenience store, and a Thai restaurant, it is a hidden gem. The fish is fresh, and some of the specials they have are amazing. My wife and I went here on the recommendation of a friend and were pretty happy with all facets of the food (sushi, tempura, etc...). There was a LONG wait though, even after we had made a reservation, and the place was pretty p... view more

Like the others said -- Best sushi in SD

Up to par with decent sushi places in LA, but by far the best fish in SD. There's really no other place to go in SD for good sushi.
