We dined here with a group of 5. 3 different tickets, so that is always going to be a bit of an issue. The waitress in the restaurant wasn't thrilled with that, but she was ok.

The sushi was really good. Some of the food did come out missing ingredients, so they had to wait while some of us ate.

Overall, I thought their happy hour prices were great and they are good both in the bar and in the restaurant. Quite a few choices too.

Upscale sushi restaurant. Freshest fish professionally served up. Raw bar and grilled dishes. My wife and I and friends go as frequently as possible. We love sashimi, but their exotic rolls & grilled items are awesome. They have high end sakes that are not on the menu. Ask! We have had sushi/sashimi all over North America. The only one we found better was the Sushi Restaurant at the Ritz Carlton Puerto Rico. If you don't like Japanese food here, don't bother going anywhere else.

Although Izumi has a sushi bar, the regular Japanese menu was our reason for coming here. At last, some real Japanese food which was very well seasoned and presented. The udon was soft, but chewy and the eel was excellent as well. For lunch we felt the variety of choice was very good.
On the flip side, the restaurant is out of the way from central Eugene, parking is minimal and the restaurant itself is very noisy. Part of this is because of all the hard surfaces inside and part is because of the questionable music being played too loudly. Improving this feature (or lack of) would greatly enhance the otherwise nice atmosphere.
Service was pleasant, but the fact they would be closing in half an hour was made very definite to us as soon as we were seated. No lingering here!
All in all, Izumi is worth the drive as few "Japanese" restaurants nowadays serve much beyond sushi and tempura. Enjoy.

We were travelling, and as my husband checked into the hotel and asked about where to dine, I was in the car checking for nearby restaurants on the GPS as well as Trip Advisor. We both came up with the same restaurant! Doesn't always happen!
We couldn't have chosen better! Lucky us.
We had a lovely waitress who made several great suggestions to us. Originally we had both wanted seafood for dinner. The sushi was delicious and we had our seafood! Every mouthful was so good! We don't always stop in the same towns when we travel but next time we drive through Eugene we will stop at Izumi!

My wife and I visit approximately once a week. Usually, Adam is our server. He does a great job and food is always amazing. We love the happy hour menu. Would be better if it had a cocktail or two besides the 'martini of the day'. Overall, the place is amazing.
