The food here is probably some of the best I've had in a long time - so fresh tasting, hot, crispy when it was supposed to be! Everything was seasoned to perfection and the service was awesome. Even my husband, who was terrified to go to "a sushi place" commented that he enjoyed himself, and loved the food - there... More

East Izakaya has a super cool vibe. Servers race around bringing fresh sushi and other Japanese delicacies after you order from a tablet provided at each table. The long harvest table is inviting and a great way to chat with people. All of the dishes are fresh, flavourful and beautifully presented. Everything we ordered was gobbled up quickly! Ask your...

We enjoyed lunch here yesterday and have enjoyed both lunch and dinner in the past. The service is always great, with visible active teamwork! The food is always fresh and fast (not too fast). Allergies are asked about and taken seriously. Our favourite all you can eat sushi place!

We chose this place because my teenage daughter gave it rave reviews and it had deep-fried Mars bars! Everything was excellent – the food, the service, the atmosphere and the special attention my daughter got for her birthday without us even requesting it or telling anyone that it was her birthday. Special shout out to Donald for the gift and... More

I can't say enough about East - their service is above and beyond and their food is absolutely amazing. I have never been disappointed. They constantly refill your drinks, give you new napkins, remove empty plates and check in with you to make sure all is well. All of the servers are friendly and competent and have such high service... More

I've been to east many time but this is the first time I've had an amazing server like Joshua! He made sure our food was great and made sure our drinks were right there on time. He told us the specials right away and made sure we had a great time. He brought us cute little Santa post cards to... More

We had a terrific All you can eat Sushi dinner at East on Sunday Nov 6/16 for the first time since the big renovation. The place was packed. Seriously, make a reservation, it seats about 100 and we were fortunate to get in at 7:00pm...dinner for three. Food as expected was exceptionally good, giving us yet another venue for terrific...

I thought Wind had great sushi, but East is soooo much better! Quality is better, service is better and tons of variety. East has definitely won me over!

I don't expect much from sushi in St. Catharines, having eaten at several of them (Jade, Wind, Real Sushi, Raw Fish), but East Izakaya is really good! Way better food quality and a more upscale atmosphere than Wind. The grilled items are a welcome tide-over when you're waiting for your iPad order to be filled. The grilled beef was tender... More
