We ended up at Ginza based on the need to meet a friend on our way to the theater in Hartford. Never would I have chosen this place on my own. Overall, it was a good experience. It was easy getting a table for 6 early on a Saturday night. The spirit of the place was friendly, inviting, although the decor is dated (1980's), dark, and not appealing. The waitstaff was great! Our waitperson rattled off complicated specials like a pro. Our appetizers were fine. Vegetable gyoza were fresh, nicely prepared and served attractively. The edamame were a hit. A third appetizer tuna dumplings were a hit with those who tried it. Our entrees were served within a reasonable time. The sushi for two was not remarkable. The tuna sushi was not good but that was the only one I did not like. The California roll tasted like it was made much earlier. Other entrees got good reviews - a special steak roll was nicely done. The stuffed shrimp (not Japanese but neither was the diner) looked tasty. Dessert was eclectic - definitely not Japanese - but our group liked it.
Overall, we made a good choice and enjoyed the meal. The price was okay considering we got a lot of food and no alcohol. I'd go back sometime, although it is not a urgent revisit for me.
