The table was extremely dirty. The waitress was very slow, disinterested and borderline rude. Some things we ordered were never delivered. The food was soggy. In my book, this was a grand slam home run. If you *wanted* to create a disappointing experience, I don't know how to top this one.

Sushi Main St is a locals favorite. We have dined here for over a decade and the food is consistently fresh, delightfully eye pleasing and delicious. If you manage to get one of the long time servers, you are in for a treat. Love the sweet woman who serves the front side dining room, facing Main St., in the evenings... More

These guys were real close to a 5 star review, but I can't quite justify it. The sushi here is really good, not superb, but definitely above average. They offer an impressive range of rolls. All of them were good. They also have large beers (the Rogue brown ale is tasty and paired well). Everything was very fairly priced ($45... More

We visited this lovely restaurant on our first evening in Half Moon Bay. The waitress made us chose between the two empty table they had and we opted for the one close to the entrance door, as the other one was very close to the Brazilian musicians playing. We ordered some sushi and sashimi, plus my favourite - Japanese sea... More

After reading the reviews on Sushi Main Street and staying down the street at a B&B, I thought "Sushi Main Street," would be the perfect place for a nice romantic dinner with my spouse. I'm so happy that we decided to go to "The Benito House," for a beer, before our 7pm reservations. At "Sushi Main Street," we were promptly... More

This friendly establishment features a rare combination of top drawer sushi/sashimi with absolutely zero pretentiousness. This is some of the best raw food I have ever sampled, and other dishes like fried soft shell crabs are fantastic. One formula for a perfect Saturday afternoon: 1) Take a long walk on Poplar Street Beach (after making your way through the laughably... More

Love the decor and the food. Location in Half Moon Bay is very pleasant and convenient for a stroll around town at any time of day or night. They've been a fixture of the coastal restaurant scene forever.

Ok, this is the place to stop if your a sushi lover and find yourself driving down the coast in HMB. I would suggest going at lunch time, real value compared to the evening prices. The California rolls are fabulous. My kids ordered the combo bento box, which was prefect and a great value at lunch time.

Very nice place to stop for lunch. We were on our way to Santa Cruz through Half Moon Bay where we decided to stop for lunch. We went to Sushi Main Street attracted by the idiosyncratic decor, which creates a cozy ambience (Pueblo counters and fixed seating meet the Flintstones's stone tables meet wooden Indian carved panels meet Dogon granary...
