“You gotta try the lollipop sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2012

I'm now going twice a month and haven't been disappointed yet. This is a california style sushi with jalapeño, avocado and crab mix if you want them. But they will move past the trendy with just a request for the more traditional. In fact, I skip the menu and ask them to create dishes which are always fabulous and creative. Trendy or not, though, the lollipop is not to be missed.

“Excellent sushi, comfortable atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2012

We went to Jizake on Cinco de Mayo for dinner on our way to the beach and it was perfect for a spur of the moment family outing. The staff were all very friendly and attentive. The sushi was very good, especially for the cost. The sushi bar was large, and looked like a lot of fun, but we sat at a booth. The music was ecclectic and not what you'd expect at a sushi restaurant, but suited the fun, friendly vibe perfectly.

The one drawback is that they were not open the first time we tried to go - I believe it was a Sunday afternoon.

“Loudest restaurant ever”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2011

The food is good and fresh and the service quick. This place is small and usually crowded. On weekends, it can get extremely loud because of the acoustics and low ceiling and the affable sushi chefs. Great if you're into a party atmosphere. Not so good if you want to converse.
