Sushi Ota is good, but not spectacular. The fish is fresh. The rice a bit sticky. I have had better sushi sorry to say. They did not have Uni so if that's a favorite, might want to call ahead.

Great meal! Definitely call for reservations. When we called there was 1 seat open at 5 and next time was 9:15. They had a nice selection of rolls, including some interesting combinations. We had a crazy tempura and a few hand rolls.
