I am honestly surprised at the other reviews. This wasn't a bad experience, but I wasn't overwhelmed either. The menu seemed about average. The sushi was pretty good. I suppose the value was good. Service average at best. Although, it was packed so I guess it's understandable that things were on the slow side.

my girlfriends and i ate here on a girls' getaway weekend. we waited over an hour with high expectations. maybe we were too hungry, but this place failed to impress. i might not be a new yorker, but i grew up in LA where little tokyo is second to none.

don't bother.

We were in Park City for 6 days, and wanted to hit several highly rated restaurants. Our experiences were varied, with many falling disappointingly below their positive descriptions. Although Yamato is a newcomer to Park City, the recent reviews posted here were so consistently positive, we decided to give it a try even though the ambience is humble and our concierge had never heard of it (we have since corrected that ) It was a terrific dinner from start to finish. Our group of four tasted everything we ordered, and EVERY dish was unanimously declared a winner. (BBQ edamame, calamari, potstickers, honey vanilla chicken that tasted like "chicken and waffles" , beef sukiyaki, and several rolls off the sushi menu). James, our server, was amazingly informative about details of dishes, wines, etc., and was more than happy to make substitutions in rolls to accommodate allergies in our group members - often with suggestions that made the revised dish delivered to our table the best of its kind we had tasted anywhere ! Chef Tosh visited our table, was very friendly and enthusiastic about making his guests happy, and indicated he might put the modified version on the menu since we liked it so much (Look to see if the "Miami Marissa" roll is available - highly recommended) The prices of individual dishes were very reasonable, but because everything we tasted was so terrific, we kept ordering more dishes, so that even with the current fantastic half off sushi special, we ran up a sizeable tab of $50 per person. However, it is possible to have a great meal for considerably less, and for whatever amount of money you spend, you will be getting everything you really want to visit a restaurant for - great food and great service - not a "snooty/designer" place with hit or miss food and poor service. Before we left town, we cancelled some other big-name reservations, in order to dine at Yamato's twice !

We are a level locals and know every place in town. We're once upon a time new yorkers and know what we're doing. This is the best sushi place in town, hands down, and no debate. Order the rich, tempura fried rolls . Ask for Elena or James (who's obnoxious, but the best sushi waiter ever). Get the sneak attack, or tiger Lilly (neither of which are on the menu). The sneak attack is the best roll in park city, but can be hot as hell. It lives up to it's name. It is 100% vivid. I hope it helps...
