    First timers should always try the "Trust me" - a great assortment sampler - a perfect meal. Then, I also recommend the large scallop sushi and the eel. Did you know Nozawa makes his own Soy Sauce!

    Trust me lite is my go-to, but make sure to try the albacore belly. Doesn't get better than that! Austin, Monica, Will, the whole staff is incredibly friendly. They more than earn their 16% grat.

    The sushi here just melts in your mouth! The tips they give you about what pieces to add (or not add) the different sauces are worth heeding. Your mouth will be happy you came!

    Really good sushi. All of it top quality. I kind of long for this style of sushi when I'm in NY. Get the Trust Me and then if you still want more pick ala carte. All of it is excellent.

    Trust. Lives up to the hype. Don't like to automatically pay at on top of the %16 tip? Order to go, sit by fountain outside…and tip the friendly staff as you see fit.

    I only had sashimi but it was some of the best/freshest fish I've ever had. It didn't need any extra sauces either, it came ready and delicious.

    Busy location, limited seating & TERRIBLE parking BUT the fish is fresh and melts in your mouth! Friendly service. Salmon, amazing Toro & Blue Crab hand rolls. Order the "Trust Me" or a la carte!

    First time here with one other person? Split the "Nozawa." After your finished, order separate portions of your favorite stuff! The sushi here is some of the best and most fresh I've ever had!

    Trust me: You'll love it! I lived in Japan a year & this is in my top five sushi places. Love the simplicity and the warm rice with delicate sauces. Just TRUST Nozawa! He does it uniquely right!

    The highest quality sushi on the west side. Not your normal spot though, very selective menu and no special requests. They make new rice every 30 minutes! No reservations so plan on a wait

    The fish is high quality and the rice is also amazing. A high value sushi place. They are either understaffed or disorganized as many orders come out wrong and there are avoidable mistakes.

    Pro: quality of fish was outstanding and service was friendly. Con: rice was a little warm for my liking and one batch was a bit too sour. The "trust me" omakase set was a good deal.
  • David H.
    First visit here lived up to expectations. The Trust Me menu was a solid choice to sample lots of different options for a reasonable price.

    Remember you dont have to order a omakase per person. Wife and i just shared the nozawa just to try the place out. Not bad. Kind of a better quality sushi boy to be honest...

    Do right by the chef and the food. Order one of the "Trust Me" options and by no means should you dip any of the sashimi in soy sauce.
  • Big T.

    Sushi is good. Expect to pay a good price. The big travesty is that there's no connectivity of any kind inside. OK if you're with friends or fam but hard to have a solo meal & read the news.

    Everything I got was extremely fresh. The food here is terrific. If you are a sushi nut, I would look elsewhere though. The rolls were too basic for my liking. It's a pricy meal, too.

    If you get the "Trust Me" lets you sample a variety of sushi. The nozawa is filling and bang for your buck.

    Food was really good. Not the place to go if you are hungry or on a budget, but if you like good sushi and don't mind having limited options, its a slam dunk.

    The waiters will politely tell you that the chef does not appreciate sashimi dipping into the soy sauce. And he is right, the sashimi taste is too good just by itself.

    Well priced, non-traditional style of sushi. Feels less about the fish & more about the light sauces & flavors. Not for purists. 1 hr lunch.
