This is our to-go-to place during our lunch time. They have very good sushi selections and soup as well as salad. They also have a reasonable price specials for lunch!! You should try this place and you will love it!

Everything here was fine and the service was very good. We were able to get a table with no wait at dinner time on Friday night. I'm not thrilled with the decor. It's dark and somewhat gloomy. The sushi was fine. The edamame was steaming hot and fresh, and the salad was also fresh. I have no complaints about the food. If I worked downtown, I would probably eat here regularly.

The sushi is pretty good, not amazing or mind-blowing, but good. It's open late and has great sake choices, plus a sensational vegetarian sushi menu for those who don't eat fish. The atmosphere is phenomenal, a cozy downtown spot to eat sushi and chill while still feeling fancy.

Well, someone goes here or they'd have closed by now. The fishy smell I've noticed both times I've gone for a sushi venue. If you're downtown and Kenichi or Imperia's too far of a walk, I suppose this is another choice. They do have a bar, so you can maybe convince yourself after a few drinks that it was a good idea, but having tried that with other things in life, I can tell you, it's a bad choice.

I was craving a good dragon roll, and stopped in here for a quick sushi lunch. I settled on the lunch special of a California roll and miso soup for $8. You can't find much better than that. The California roll was okay. It's one of the most basic sushi items you can get, so I guess it was okay. The soup was also just okay. The service was okay. Everything was okay, or mediocre. I've passed by a few times since that visit, and still haven't stopped in. Meh. If you're looking for a cheap sushi lunch, then this is the place for you.

It has a pretty good deal for lunch during the week for downtown workers. Sushi is average but not the best or worst. I wish this place had a more distinct personality. Lately, the sushi quality has gone down and the fish seems old or not chilled.

For me what make this Japanese-menued joint are the sushi selection and atmosphere. While the sushi perhaps isn't world-class, it is really good and fairly inexpensive. My favorite so far is the Sakura roll. They serve beer and sake, and the fact that they have a good selection of boba is a knock in their favor as well. More than anything however, what makes Silhouette so perfect is that they are open late, so if you are the type of drunk that is too snooty for greasy pizza (a'la me) stumble yourself on over here.
