I visited Izakaya last month and was amazed. The food was great... Very fresh sushi and several specials written on the board. The service was also very good. I think I just found my favourite sushi place in South Florida... I know it is different, but I actually thought the food here was better than Nobu in South Beach. If you are in the Gables area, give it a try. You will not be disappointed.

Great lunch specials, but the A la Carte Menu is what IZAKAYA is known for. Consistently delicious over the years.

We love sushi, but are pretty careful about where we choose to indulge. Izakaya in Coral Gables was a good choice. Friendly and attentive service. Very interesting menu. Sushi was good, but smallish pieces and priced as singles. So, a bit on the expensive side.

Good price for amazing fish.

We had dinner here after reading trip advisor. The specials here are truly outstanding as stated by other reviewers. We had the sashimi salad--impeccably seasoned fresh baby spinach and perfectly fresh sashimi of tuna, salmon and white fish. The grilled eggplant and tofu dish and gyozas are likewise outstanding. Having said that, the sushi was a little disappointing. While the fish is very fresh, the nigiri have too thin and small of a slice of fish for the amount of rice. The rolls are ok. Overall we enjoyed the meal very much but next time would probably focus our orders on the specials along the wall.
