When they are on their game they are, hands, down, one of the best and most unique sushi menus I have seen. I have eaten here a LOT and I would say that the biggest problem is that they will often not have something on the menu, though they only mention it when you have waited and go pick up... More

We have been to the sister restaurant in McKinleyville and loved it. Came in for lunch today at the Arcata restaurant. Waitress took our order, food was good, were approximately 4 other parties in the restaurant. One roll was wrong and the chef took over 45 minutes to get my wife's replacement Philly roll. He brought it out in person,... More

I've eaten here only 4 times and have gotten take-out a few and it's always deelish! Everything is fresh and when it's Dungeness crab season that is the only roll I order (with soy wrap). Until lately...the Moonstone Beach roll is a worthy competitor. Also like their Miso soup, not too seaweed-ish. It's just right. There are too many things... More

This was my second trip on the recommendation of a local friend. The sushi is fresh and good. Especially like the special rolls! Very inventive! The Butsugiri is very good too - its like a combo of sashimi and poke. I will visit again the next time I am in town.

we have been coming to Sushi Spot since the beginning when the first owner opened the restaurant. Since then she sold it to a young couple. At first the food was spotty, with not so fresh fish and not so great service. Now, I would say the food had vastly improved but the service is terrible. Perhaps they think that... More

I have usual gone thee with other who want good sushi. They do a great job with that. I usually have something else. They get fresh organic food and prepare it just right. I have enjoyed their chicken curry a few times. It comes with a small fresh fruit salad. I think they do everything well. The service was excellent.... More

After a hike through the Sequoias, we found this little spot in Arcata. Our server was friendly and offered great suggestions for touring the area. The sushi was creatively conceived and perfectly made. We loved the one with Dijon mustard. Our meal here was perfect, and is a treasured memory of a magical trip to the PNW.
