Okay let's take an inside look. When you walk in it's pretty dark inside. The decor is mainly black with hints of lighting to at least get you to your table. There is a large fish tank that the kiddos seem to enjoy. The tables have a tablecloth, but then it's covered with brown paper (because of the high turnaround I'm sure). Although I believe that Sushi Alive isn't the most romantic of places inside it does have its charm and to die for sushi. That's romantic enough, right?
The wait time for Sushi Alive during the weekdays tends to be pretty lengthy. I suggest calling ahead if you have a larger group. The service is always pleasant, but not overly talkative. They come to your table and take your order and make sure you always have fresh drinks. We have our favorites of course, but even they don't say much when they come to our table.
Whenever I go to Sushi Alive I seem to go in large groups. We end up ordering enough sushi to feed an army because of the specials that they have Monday through Friday from 5pm - 7pm. They have about 6 or 7 different sushi rolls that are only $3.00 for 8 pieces and they have half price house wines. It's great!
The sushi always comes fresh and with plenty of ginger, wasabi and even spicy mayo. The tempura style sushi is one of my favorites because it has a great crunch and it's never soggy. There's nothing worse than soggy tempura sushi. My friends are a little more daring and they get some pretty cool dishes that always seem to be presented so well.
There's really not much left for me to say about this place without sounded like they hired me to do this review for them. Which they didn't! I just absolutely love their sushi and even the dark atmosphere.
