My daughter had been raving about this restaurant, so we had a very nice family meal there for my birthday. We had some nice fresh sushi (we love caterpillar rolls) and bento boxes. Everything was fresh, authentically Japanese and tasty, plus there was so much food that we brought home enough for an entire meal the next day! The service... More

Sushi Garder is an institution around here. We have been eating here for about 15 years. The restaurant is relatively small and gets quite crowded on weekend evenings or most every night when our tourist season is in full swing. Expect to wait, no reservations. It can also get quite loud but is always fun. The quality of the sushi... More

Yes it was really great, not to good about what to choose but the others pointed me in the right direction. Service spot on, friendly and upbeat, not normally given to hanging out 5's but I am going to remember this meal for a long time.

Came here with my son for a belated Christmas dinner since he worked on Christmas. We got there right when it opened, seated in the back where it was quiet, was quickly met by a waitress, she took our order and right when we got our first order of rolls it seemed like the entire restaurant filled up instantly! People... More

We found the restaurant on TripAdvisor and decided to go for dinner based on the reviews. The menu had a great variety. Prices were what you would expect for sushi in this area of Capitola. Service was good considering how crowded it was. We had no problem with the wait as we could slow down and just enjoy each others... More

We have been to Sushi Garden several times for dinner and always have been pleased and satisfied. First and foremost, every dish we have ordered has been delicious and beautifully presented. The menu is out of this world, offering a full array of sushi and sashimi dishes plus a seemingly endless selection of rolls. I love the combination dinner while... More

Mediocre food and service. The tempura was greasy and the salmon overcooked. The box provided at lunch comes with a limp salad and dreadful sushi pieces. While the lunch was only $12, cheap for a sushi place, the quality was really lacking. Also, because I had been there before, I knew to ask for the edamame free intro to the... More
