    Not recommended

    I went to Poke last night. While the service was fine and the BYO policy was great, I was disappointed when I received my Sashimi Deluxe entree. On the plate sat no more than 12 pieces of sashimi, not 18 that one would get at any other japanese restaurant. The kicker is that 2 of those 12 pieces were what seemed like imitation crab! When I held up my plate and asked him if he was kidding putting this on my plate, the "sushi chef" said that it is up to the "chef" what he served and if I didn't like it then don't eat it. I was incredulous and stunned into silence by this Philistine excuse for a "sushi chef". Needless to say for the first time in the history of my love affair with sashimi, I left two pieces uneaten on my plate.

    Simply sushi

    If you want great sushi go to Poke. The absence of decor only highlights the excellence of the food. A no frills hole in the wall, with creative wonderful maki rolls - recommend the truffle roll. Yay Poke!

    Delicious but too little on the plate

    This is the perfect little neighborhood restaurant. The food is absolutely delicious..the mussel appetizer is scrumptious. But the sashimi, though excellent fell far short of being satisfying. For the price it is most unreasonable. There were only 10 small pieces of sashimi. For their price other restaurants fill the plate. I left hungry. Soup and salad are not even included. This restaurant ought to take a hint and come across with more food or lower the prices.

    Excellent sushi--on a shoestring

    If you want really great sushi and don't care about decor, Poke is the place: excellent rolls, friendly service, BYOB, very reasonable price. I have been to Poke 4 times, and have been satisfied each time. Highly recommended.

    So darn good, don't wanna tell ya!

    Um, like I would rather barely mention the dining experience to the other rubes out there because this place is very cheap and very very good! You can eat here and bring your own damn wine. Do you know what that means? That means you can eat for like twenty bucks a person. Thirty bucks if you are chowing down. The miso soup is superb. Try the tofu salad. And certainly all the sushi and fish is wonderful and not that expensive. The place is not fancy but it is clean and you just have to get a seat. It feels like eating in Tokyo or something. All I can tell you is that the food tastes delish and you don't have to spend too much.

    Patience pays off with good sushi..!

    I have been going to Poke for sushi since they opened. I have eaten at many different sushi spots throughout the city but the food here is among the best. I have yet to find a place that can even touch the spicy tuna and dragon rolls. The fact that they don't accept credit cards is a small draw back. One word of advice though. If you're in a rush you should probably eat somewhere else. The place is pretty small and gets packed quickly so you might end up waiting a while to be seated and for your food. This wasn't always the case but the word on the quality of the food here has quickly spread. If you have the time though....the food is absolutely awesome and you will not be disappointed. Looks might be deceiving as the place is small and doesn't look like much, but BJ (the Sushi chef) can sure make it up with the food quality. The prices are fair and about average when compared to other spots. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who appreciates quality sushi..!

    After reading the reviews of this place, I was excited to go. However, our first clue should have been that they don't accept credit cards. Anyway, we tried it and, while the sushi is good, the portions are SO SMALL that I almost had to eat another full meal afterwards. I ordered the sashimi plate - it came with about 7 pieces and they were miniscule. It didn't even come with soup or salad!
