I am staying at a great Hampton Inn in Alameda near the Oakland Airport. There are no restaurants within walking distance, so the shuttle brings guests to local spots. Two were recommended: a Mexican restaurant and this one. I chose Angelfish. I chose the wrong one. The service is slow, inattentive and not knowledgeable about the menu. No one was... More

Best Japanese restaurant in Alameda. Whether it is lunch or dinner, sushi is made with fresh seafood. Noodle soup is good, and the garlic noodle dish is tasty. The homemade sushi rolls are large. Friendly service. Prices are moderate. Angelfish is next to the local coffee shop near Safeway. I always get the California crab roll.

Good service, great food in a nice location. Staff is friendly and helpful. Always greeted right away even when busy. A good variety of food but not such a big menu that they do anything well. Just enough so that you can choose but they still can keep the quality.

Tekamaki, tuna roll, was very fresh and tasty. Miso soup was interesting and flavorful. A little more stock than I'm used to, but I really liked it. Edamame was made fresh, but it could have had a bit more salt. Service was outstanding.

I came to Angelfish with my family and friends, a diverse Asian group, and this restaurant is their absolute favorite place to go for sushi. The owner recognized our mother who is elderly and was incredibly gracious to her. Our table shared numerous dishes, all very fresh and inventive. The halibut liver "pate" was a first for us and quite... More

This is a good place for a quick lunch. I had the special lunch bento box that came with chicken katsu, teriyaki salmon, sashimi, rice and salad. It was fine but nothing really stood out. On the other hand, the miso soup had a real home made feel to it. It was delicious.

Reasonably priced with good selection. My favorite is the Tomas Roll, good service and good support from the locals. They also had good innovative plates

Food is fresh and I attribute this to the standards of Chef Taka. Choices are a few dollars more than other Japanese restaurants in Alameda. Service has been a challenge the few times I came. I noticed quite a bit of turnover in servers - that appear to be younger kids that may lack the experience and coaching. Lots of... More
