We had a variety of foods and most of it was good. We had a couple sushi rolls that were good and the pepper tuna was really good. The Shu Mai was just ok. Our girls had the children's portion of hibachi beef. The beef was cooked nicely and the portion was more that our 2 girls could eat. My... More

We've been coming to Sake since it first opened a couple years ago. Unfortunately service has declined significantly. We've had the same waitress for the last three visits, and she is always rude and has no customer service skills. No smile, no questions if you need anything else, no follow up, nothing. She takes you to the table, places the... More

I crave this place sometimes. The food is excellent. It is a bit dark in there even during the afternoon but your eyes get used to it eventually. Hard time understanding the waitresses many times.

really enjoyed the restaurant, great service, very attentive, good food, this was a nice change of pace and it's small so you feel like your being addressed immediately.

When this restaurant came to town I was a bit skeptical. I wondered how fresh the fish would be and if it would be worth going, but they have proven me wrong time and time again. In fact, this is a go to place for any occasion in our family now. It is a dark, quiet atmosphere with a great... More

The least expected option for a dining experience on the Prairie. We moved to Brookings 4 years ago and were skeptical of sushi in the middle of the prairie, but we found an amazing experience that continues to delight. I have never had anything but a great experience.

Nigiri was on the edge of retirement and the rice was cold in each of 4 visits. Service and decor was fine, but a Japanese restaurant, it wasn't

Having been there a couple of times already, when we had special occasion that could only be done during lunch, I contacted them ahead of time and they made it special indeed. Just like their food and service, the extra touches were perfectly balanced to make the occasion stand out without be overdone. They strive for perfection and nearly always... More

My SDSU college student asked to go here when I came to visit during Mom's weekend. Service was excellent and fast - the sushi rolls (Lovers Roll and Dragons Roll and Surf Roll) were incredible and very generous as my son took some back to his dorm. The Hibachi (salmon and shrimp) that I ordered the next day with fried... More
