    Birthday dinner for my daughter. We got some white tuna to start and miso soup, then had 4 sushi rolls between 3 adults. Everything was great. Seriously, the flavors are really wonderful together on each roll. Super fresh and a good value. Love the atmosphere of the place but don’t love the techno music blaring overhead. Keep the music if you want just turn it down so we can talk across the table. Please. Love this place.

    Minimum selection and very pricey. As a regular sushi eater I would always chose to spend my money somewhere else. This place is all atmosphere and hype. For slightly more we could have gone to Sushi Den.

    As someone who has visited a lot of Izakayas in both Japan and the US, the food was excellent, but Mizu was more of a restaurant then an izakaya. The sushi was fresh and well portioned, the appetizers had authentic flavors and the mains were really satisfying. Their menu leans more towards a Japanese fusion with other Asian cuisines rather then strictly Japanese food, but every dish we ordered was outstanding. The Takoyaki was very close to what we had in Osaka, and the grilled squid had a great acidic flavor to the sauce. I highly recommend both those appetizers. The galbi and scallops were delicious, but the miso black cod was only the size of 2 pieces of nigiri, so be warned it probably won’t fill you up. Moving on to desserts we got one of basically everything and they were all outstanding so leave a little room for dessert! Usually we take lots of pictures of our food but it smelled so good and was so delicious we ate it right away. I managed to sneak one of the galbi in however! We will definitely be back for sure!

    We’ve walked by Mizu so many times and finally came in to celebrate a birthday. The service was fantastic (Irving was the best!), the food was delicious, and the birthday desert was so much fun. I highly recommend the Kobe beef buns. Maybe one of the most delicious things I’ve ever eaten! The brussels sprouts were my second favorite part of the meal. They were deconstructed, mixed like a salad, but still flakey and crispy. The rainbow roll was beautiful and pretty good. The spicy tuna was presented very nicely but it had a strong fishy taste that overpowered the otherwise good flavor. Overall a great experience. Will definitely be back!

    The menu was a little overwhelming at first, but our server was very helpful and answered our questions. The food was delicious and beautifully presented and we will definitely be back to try other dishes or just sit at the sushi bar. We went to Mizu to celebrate our 30. wedding anniversary, which unfortunately went unnoticed, even though we put it on our reservation. If you like it a little quieter ask for a table on the covered patio.

    Nice food. However after seated at patio beside 10 peoples party becomes 40 people later, we are re-seated inside since it’s way too loud and lack of service. Ordered drinks and didn’t get served till asked them the second time. Overall too noisy and wouldn’t suggest to go during Friday or Saturday night dinner time.

    Nice environment, great service. Food was good, not spectacular; likewise the cocktails. Prices were a bit high for what we got. Because there are so many options probably wouldn't choose it again, but if invited would be glad to go.
