Most of the other sushi restaurants in our neighborhood have gone to the "all you can eat" format. Not here. The sushi and sashimi are excellent, the rolls large and flavorful, and the appetizers are a great start. It's not as cheap as the all you can eat places, but it's worth the extra fare for nice sized portions of... More

This small restaurant has a varied fish and sushi menu. Always crowded and all dishes are interesting in their presentation and very fresh. Loved the menu!

We eat at Fish in a Bottle often. We always ask to sit in Nick's area. He is the best server we have ever had at a restaurant. The food is always amazing and we always compare other. Restaurants to this one and no one compares for taste and value! We will keep coming back and will always sit in... More

We sushi rookies but the waitress walked us through and answered everything and any question we had. Great fresh tasting, at a fair price. Ice cold beer served w/ice cold tall glasses. Excellent!

The sushi is fresh and delicious. No other sushi place in this area compares! I have never had anything but the best food there. Sometimes I order cooked Japanese food too, and it's fabulous. Because of the good food the place is always busy.

Been coming here for a long time. I highly recommend it. Food is always very good. Service is a bit hit or miss (good when owners are present. Not so good when they are absent.) This is the best for new-age, Japanese, Sushi place around. (for hard-core Sushi, I prefer Sushi Noguchi. But that is more expensive.)

My wife wanted to give Fish in a Bottle a second chance. We'd visited there several years ago but never came back. Usually, there's a reason. I remembered it as being a place where the chefs had highly imaginative combinations but, my memory had just recorded, "foo foo sushi" -- much ado about nothing. On our return visit, I can... More

We went here for Father's Day dinner and LOVED it! Beer was very cold. Mixed tea was fresh. Edamame appetizer was properly cooked - not soggy! We ordered 4 different rolls and loved each of them. Had some yellowtail sashimi, too. It was perfect. Our server was prompt and courteous. Restaurant is clean and nicely decorated. We will definitely go... More
