We have been visiting tomos for a number of years and this is our first review. We have found the food and service to be of a wonderfull standard. The sashimi is fresh and the gyozas are the best we have ever tasted. We travel over an hour to eat here and are never disappointed. Well worth visiting.

We had an excellent meal here. My favorites were the sea urchin sushi and a Dungeness crab roll, a local and seasonal special. In the historic Hotel Arcata, right on the downtown plaza. Worth a visit.

Our server, (Kassidy), got us a table to view the bowl game we had been watching in our hotel and had the TV turned so we could see it. Sushi was, as usual, outstanding and the service was wonderful. For us, the sampler is the way to go and adding a few things off the menu tops it all off.... More

Super tasty bento boxes with a lot of food for the money, but the service was slow when we were there for lunch on a Tuesday. The place was packed (great food!), but even getting there on the early side before the dining room filled, our food took awhile. We weren't in a hurry, so it was fine and worth... More

It wasn't far to walk from inside the Hotel to the Sushi restaurant located in the hotel. We've eaten here several times and always come back. The service is good the food is good. You really feel like the working college community comes here as one of the strategic places to eat. It's one of the reasons I wanted to... More

First time but will not be last. Eight in our party and we all had something different. From sushi to tempura to teriyaki. We all loved our entrees. Service was timely and informative.

seemingly the place for parents to take kids and their friends, entrance is thru the arcata hotel lobby. its always packed so make a reservation. food is good and fresh (seafood) but its not inexpensive and can be slow on service and quite noisey. that said, we've eaten here 4 times.

Absolutely brilliant from the food (best sashimi outside of Tokyo) to the very attentive service. And the price is very reasonable, especially when compared to the ludicrously priced places close-by. A must eat place in Arcata!

This is a local favorite! It is always a good idea to make reservations. This place is known for its "Tomadachi" - half plum wine/half saki. Give it a try! They use fresh ingredients and have a nice presentation. If you aren't a sushi fan they have other options - chicken katsu, teriyaki chicken, salads, edamame, etc...This place is usually... More
