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.
