I was apprehensive when I first realized Edo was under new management, having been a huge fan and loyal regular of Edo for over 3 years. HOWEVER, the new Edo has gone above and beyond to wipe every bit of that apprehension from my psyche. The family like service, the quality of the sashimi, the family attention to detail on the plates - it's all amazing. I treat myself at least twice a week (okay, sometimes three times a week) to their delightful lunch specials, and it's a pleasure each time. GO!

So like previous reviewers have posted, the place is under new management. I used to always get the Chicken Katsu...it was fried deliciously with a side of sweet soy sauce. Now it's a lump of chicken, hardly cooked or remotely hot, with really salty sauce. Now the first time I ordered it, I thought...OK, new owners, maybe they are just starting out. So the second time, it was a little better, but not like before. The third time was not a charm. Why a third time? I didn't want to give up on them...I really liked their food, before the new management. Please trust, this will be the last time I eat here.

I have a different perspective from the person who wrote the previous review: having french fries at a japanese restaurant is out of the ordinary, yes... but if you were craving sushi and you had to go with a friend who only likes "American" fare, where would you go? I went to 9-Edo last night with my wife and 3-year old girl (completely out of our way), and it was just one great part of a great night. I usually get delivery from here, but the weather was so nice, and we wanted to see how the place looks now that there is new ownership. The food and service at Edo was starting to get pretty bad there for a while, before the new owners took over, and now I have to say that... with improved service over the phone (for deliveries), and the quality of food having gone back to what it was previously... I'm even happier with this place than I ever was. GENEROUS portions of consistently-fresh fish will keep me loyal, too. The last time I got delivery from here, last week, my phone call to order for 3 people took about 30-45 seconds... that's the result of a fine POS system, my having ordered before, and a person manning the phone who knows what they're doing! (Ask for Chloe.) If you go, check out the sushi counter. The only things they have on display are small portions of the most popular fish. That's why it's always fresh... no lazy sushi cooks. And they keep clean, too. Anyway, I didn't even notice the french fries on the menu, though I found the menu to be very diverse with some very nice and original dishes (peppered tuna avocado salad? haven't tried it yet, but sounds awesome) and variety, too. The atmosphere at the restaurant is plain, not fancy, but that's fine with me because it's clean, and I just want affordable, awesome sushi! The yellowtail and salmon are great here, and the green tea ice cream was really nice, too. Enjoy!

My friends and I used to love Edo for its reasonable prices, great food, and solid variety of sushi. However, we came for dinner last Sunday and found that the management has changed in the past month or so. Prices are about the same, the food is still decent quality, but the variety has completely disappeared. They replaced standard Japanese entrees such as pork katsu, salmon teriyaki, and unagi don with chicken fingers, ribeye steak, mashed potatoes, and french fries. Yes, french fries. At a Japanese restaurant. The menu is also half the size of its original. No one complained about the quality of food, it was actually good, but this place is nothing special anymore. If you eat here you'll enjoy your meal, but it's no longer a restaurant I'd visit regularly. I miss Monkey Mountain.

The good things the other positive reviews have to say about the service and the atmosphere are true. This place is also perfect for the vegetarian sushi lover, with lots of creative options such as jalapeno and goat cheese maki rolls, vegetarian dragon and rainbow rolls, and delicious portobello mushroom rolls, and whatever else I may have missed! I enjoy finishing off my meals with the plum wine.

I really do like Sushi Edo. The staff are awesome and attentive. However, I must admit that the sushi is mediocre. It hurts me to write this because the staff are so great, and the ambience is inviting. But the truth is the truth. I have been to other sushi restaurants in the city and Sushi Edo pales in comparison. I won't stop going there though. I get a bang for my buck. I usually order the Spider roll and it's not bad. But if you're expecting to be blown out of the water this is not the place.
