I've been to Sakana a couple times now and will look for opportunities to return. The menu is huge - almost overwhelming - but our server was very patient, friendly, and helpful when I asked for recommendations based on what I like and don't like. I couldn't even tell you which sushi roll I ordered but it was fantastic. Very... More

The food was amazing - The best sushi I have tasted! Everything we ordered was plated professionally and hot. I highly recommend to make a reservation as the restaurant is popular and busy. The service was fast and friendly.

Group of 10, therefore automatic gratuity. Is that the reason why the service was so slow and inattentive? Nice menu; almost too many choices. Most of the rolls and pieces were very good, and appropriately so for the pricing. They have Japanese sodas, with the glass balls for stoppers; an enjoyable treat for the teens. Beer menu surprisingly limited. No... More

Great service. The food was reasonably priced and they were fine with our small (and quiet) dog sitting under our table. They were even kind enough to bring a water bowl for him!

The service is great! As soon as you walk into the door. Leo at the sushi bar is top notch. Good prices for amazing fish! Ask,for the White Unicorn! We will be back.

I had my favorites from previous dinners at Sakana but the staff helped make sure I had enough food for 8 people and suggested 2 new items (to me) that everyone really enjoyed! One was The Pink Panther and the other was Spring Fling. It was fresh, beautifully placed on the platter along with a fresh orchard. Since I had... More

We have eaten dinner at Sakana on several occasions and were pleased to have a nice, sit-down sushi location move into Wayzata a number of years ago. Mostly, however, we enjoy their lunch fare, particularly the Bento Boxes. The service is friendly, helpful and only at dinner have we had slow service.

The various rolls were delicious and the fish was fresh. Service could have been a bit more prompt but we weren't in any hurry so it was fine. I was surprised that the place quieted down early on a Saturday night - by 9 pm, it was less than half full. While the atmosphere is nice enough, it's nothing special.... More

Fantastic outdoor dining overlooking Lake Mtka. Great indoors during the winter. Staff is awesome. Sushi is excellent.
