Spectacular service and sushi . . . seriously, it was super
Been to this place a couple of times, but my most recent experience is what prompted me to compose this review.\n\nI went to Sushi Bistro with a group of 22 for my birthday (there are probably only 30 seats in the entire restaurant). From start to finish, the entire experience went flawlessly. My Girlfriend called for the reservation and was given no guff about the number of guests. The two of us arrived very early due to our combined nervousness about how the night would go, and we were seated at an empty table (just to wait) and offered drinks while we waited. We were seated (all 22 of us) within 10 minutes of our reservation time. Service at dinner was handled by one waiter who, despite it all, still managed to make everyone feel like they were being specially cared for. The food was spectacular although this is not the thrust of my review (if you haven't tried sushi bistro, do yourself a favor, and if you haven't had butterfish, do yourself another favor while your doing yourself the first favor). The waiter was fun and youthful, and even agreed to do a sake bomb with my group! Towards the end of our meal, the lights in the entire restaurant were dimmed while my complimentary green tea and vanilla/coconut ice cream with deep fried bananas dessert was brought out. I noticed that both the waiter and the owner were actively participating in the singing of the birthday song =). Afterwards, the bill came promptly and there were no hangups. All in All, a perfect 10 for service and experience (and seriously, the sushi is deeelicious).\n\nIf you live in the area (balboa and sixth) you probably already love this place. If you don't trust me that it is worth the trek out there. Try this place!!
