“Terrible service, good food. ”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

Waited over 10 minutes just to order drinks, over an hour to receive food. Food was good, service was not. Didn't even get asked if we needed drink refills.

“A favorite for me and my Sushi partner”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

My daughter and I have been eating sushi together since she was two! Of course in her younger days she didn't eat the fish, only the tofu and miso soup! So I'd say we are pretty seasoned veterans of Japanese sushi places in Santa Cruz county.(28 years worth!) Shogun in downtown Santa Cruz is always consistently good and the fish is very fresh. The menu is quite extensive, so anyone would be able to find something delicious. The plates are presented like a work of art--almost too beautiful to eat! The restaurant is spacious, and yet feels very cozy. We have never eaten dinner here, so not sure about nighttime service, but we do eat often during lunch and the service is fast, friendly, and helpful. If you like Japanese food and are in downtown Santa Cruz, I recommend Shogun, which is located close to the Del Mar theater on Pacific Garden Mall.

“Fantastic food, service had a not-so-good night”
Reviewed 7 September 2013 via mobile

Summary:
Great food - definitely 5 stars on food - with really good value for money. Unfortunately, this time the service had a not-so-good night (max 3 stars). We still highly recommend it!

Details:
We went with two friends and were immediately seated. The sushi we ordered tasted very fresh, and we also had a chicken teriyaki box that was HUGE. We definitely recommend the Unagi, which we actually re-ordered because it was soooo good. We had some difficulties getting our water refilled (service-) and some major attention deficits of the service at the end of the meal (service--)
