I have been to Kisaku several years ago and enjoyed it. I also have heard a lot of great things recently about Kisaku. Sadly, our experience was not a good one for several reason...

One of my favorites 1/3/2012

Agree with the last reviewer, Kisaku is Kid Friendy. Owners and staff are very friendly and offer great service. Good Fresh Sushi. I love the BBQ Eal! Kisaku is one of the top 5 sushi places in my book. more

Fantastic, kid-friendly sushi and Japanese cuisine 12/8/2011

Kisaku is probably my single favorite Japanese restaurant in Seattle. It treads the line between a more upscale place and a neighborhood restaurant, with prices slightly higher than an average sushi joint but still low enough to eat there casually. Service is generally good, and the food is excellent. The menu is extremely varied, and they have both cooked specials and sushi specials that change regularly. They even like kids there, not something I'd say for most sushi places. more

A little pricey but definitely very fresh sashimi 9/13/2009

This place is a little bit on the pricey side but the sashimi is super fresh. The salmon felt like it was melting in my mouth! I had the sashimi combo which was basically a sampler of 8 different kinds of sashimi. It was definitely worth it! more

Fresh and Fantastic 1/1/2007

The best sushi I have had anywhere in the country. Very fresh, very imaginative. Everything is always great. In addition to my regular sushi, I like to ask the chef at the bar to: - Surprise me with whatever they feel like making (never have been disappointed) - What should I have this evening. I have tried many new and great types of sushi with these two requests. You will not be disappointed at Kisaku. And try to save room for dessert, as the desserts are outstanding. more

Sushi so hard, Sushi so good 12/11/2006

I've gone there two times and I really really like it a lot. My date and I spent around $75 but were so completely stuffed beyond description. I could name many places where the same amount of money will just get you started. We got appetizers, sake, lots of fish (sashimi and nigiri), a couple small rolls, and a couple LARGE rolls. Plenty to munch on. The specialty rolls they had were huge and filled us up. A pretty good value and tasty at that. I remember a good selection of fresh fish that tasted nummy and buttery. We sat at the bar one time and was given free treats throughout dinner. I think he was the owner. So delish. And the waitress was hot as well. I couldn't stop watching her mouth as she spoke. The atmosphere was pretty cozy. We had a romantic time. It's a very pleasant experience overall. The food, waitstaff, price, atmosphere. Spot on. more

Good sushi, not the best 9/18/2006

I love the atmosphere here. Its almost worth the cost of the food just to sit in this place. Almost. My husband and I went here for my birthday. We got tempura (good but not great- a little too coated and heavy), miso soup (great- hard to mess up), and edamame (great but again hard to mess up). Now the sushi was delicious, I don't deny it, but honestly I've tasted fresher. Also I like to regulate the amount of wasabi that is used to flavor the sushi but they had so much rolled in it that it overpowered the taste of most of the fish. I probably would have given the place 4 stars except it was so expensive (even for a sushi restaurant). All in all, the service and atmosphere was great, but the food was not worth the cost. We will be searching for a sushi restaurant in Seattle that is better valued. more

This place is great 9/6/2006

I have recently found Kisaku and think it is GREAT. The staff is really nice and it doesn't feel as affected as many of the downtown sushi places. I have yet to sit down and try their table service, but the sushi bar is great and the head chef certainly knows his Mariners well! Great Mochi if you're a fan... more

Kisaku--cute sushi place by Green Lake 5/12/2006

Kisaku is a cute place with great service on the corner of Keystone, across from Zoka Coffee by Green Lake. The price is just right, not too pricey and not too cheap, a great place for a date. They have this amazing salad with mushroom covered in a miso salad dressing, a must try! They also have fresh salmon sushi rolls and surf clams--my two most favorite items! What's great about this place is I've always been able to walk in on a weeknight and be seated right away! If you're hungry and is ready for a good quick meal, this is the place to go. more

Great sushi, quiet atmosphere and fish quality is top notch 12/27/2005

The sushi here is very good, and the prices are not too outrageous. We really enjoy all of the tuna (they usually have a wide selection) and the pieces are the perfect size (not huge like Musashi, not tiny like Nikos). Calling ahead is usually a good idea, as it is typically crowded on most nights. We really enjoy sitting at the bar on the far side, where our fav. chef works. Not sure of his name, but he gives out samples to his good customers. Right now, best sushi in Seattle. Have eaten here at least 12-15 times in last year. more

Sushi Heaven 10/11/2005

There are a few better places for sushi in Seattle, but they're a LOT more expensive! Kisaku has a good, slightly upscale atmosphere, but it's not as expensive as say the Belltown equivalents. Excellent fish, pretty surroundings. and the desserts are awesome. more

Sign me up! 9/12/2005

Super-fresh fish, pleasant atmosphere, and some of the most gracious, committed, and attentive sushi chefs in the city! more

great sushi quality 8/16/2005

Appetizer is delicous. Sushi is of very good quality and portion is just right. They also have seasonal sushi specials not listed in menu. Be sure to ask server. Ambience is quite nice but it can be a bit noisy at night. I like their closing time of 10pm or 10:30pm. more

Amazing sushi, best service 2/16/2005

Kisaku serves some of the freshest sushi in town. The two chefs at the bar are excellent and provide friendly service. Staff is friendly and ambience is pleasant. Pretty traditional sushi here, for serious sushi lovers. more
