I think the title says it all. There were four of us dining at this restaurant and every body felt that the food was marginal and the service was abysmal and slow. We will definitely not eat here again.

First time visit, based in Trip Advisor and Yelp reviews. We decided the $50/2 people dinner would give us a good overview of all of their food. Miso soup = weak. Salad = green and ordinary. Appetizer spring rolls good. Sushi and sashimi = excellent....More

My wife and I are real sushi aficionados. And we´re spoiled, too. We come from Long Island where we have some of the best sushi outside of Japan. That being said, Yamato is BY FAR the best Japanese food we´ve had West of New Jersey!...More
