We visited this lovely restaurant on our first evening in Half Moon Bay. The waitress made us chose between the two empty table they had and we opted for the one close to the entrance door, as the other one was very close to the Brazilian musicians playing. We ordered some sushi and sashimi, plus my favourite - Japanese sea weeds and miso soup. The sushi was very good, and the sashimi very fresh and tasty. But what we really liked was the atmosphere of this place. Too bad we will not have the chance to go back, at least during this trip, but we really enjoyed the experience!

Sushi bar was wonderful, food was fresh and prepared well. Service was fantastic and the Sushi Man was charming and talkative. Prices were reasonable and all staff were friendly and attentive.

After reading the reviews on Sushi Main Street and staying down the street at a B&B, I thought "Sushi Main Street," would be the perfect place for a nice romantic dinner with my spouse. I'm so happy that we decided to go to "The Benito House," for a beer, before our 7pm reservations. At "Sushi Main Street," we were promptly seated, however we sat for twenty minutes trying to get a servers attention with no luck! We were not even approached with water and/or given any eye contact from any of the staff. The poor table next to us, had been there for a while and they were still waiting for drinks, even though plates had been brought out to them. Well after twenty minutes of waiting, we decided to walk out and that was the first time I have ever walked out of a restaurant in my life! We walked North on Main Street and found the best Sushi place with amazing service and more sushi roll choices. It was right next to Pasta Moon in a newer building near the Coffee House.

This friendly establishment features a rare combination of top drawer sushi/sashimi with absolutely zero pretentiousness. This is some of the best raw food I have ever sampled, and other dishes like fried soft shell crabs are fantastic. One formula for a perfect Saturday afternoon: 1) Take a long walk on Poplar Street Beach (after making your way through the laughably difficult parking payment machine). Dress warmly--it's Half Moon Bay remember--and then 2) when you're thoroughly wind blown and ready for a great meal, jump into your car and take the short trip to Sushi Main Street. The two times we've visited we've eaten in the "lounge" and enjoyed the over-the-top sea and sand decor--chairs made of driftwood, table tops seemingly carved out of undersea rock--it's fascinating. OK, the service might have been a little faster, but once we remembered to abide by the slightly slower pace of HMB vs. SF Peninsula, we were fine. In an earlier visit we sat right at the bar and watched the sushi chef at work and his obvious pride in what he did immediately won us over. This earns an unqualified top recommendation. If this place were over the hill in Menlo Park it'd be mobbed from afternoon to late night.

Love the decor and the food. Location in Half Moon Bay is very pleasant and convenient for a stroll around town at any time of day or night. They've been a fixture of the coastal restaurant scene forever.
