The food was good, we had the sushi; you can tell it was fresh. But the inside was extremely dated and dirty. There were spider webs in everything corner.

Service is a bit slow. The sushi is good but not great. The interior leaves a bit to be desired. Not sure who selected the music in the downstairs part of the restaurant, but it wasn't very conducive to conversation.

A great place to catch up with a few friends over sushi. Not too quiet, not too loud.

The webpage looks legit but the sushi is really not worth it. The fish didn't seem fresh and the flavors were not refined.

That was such a bait-n-switch, with the website giving you exquisite photos and scrumptuous discriptions of foods that don't exist in the actual restaurant.

The menu posted on your website is not the same as your actual menu. Among other differences, it included some Japanese-French entrees that were not on the actual menu. In fact, I wasn't able to identify any Japanese-French entrees, which was very disappointing. I'd suggest having some such as the ones on your website. It would really differentiate you from other Japanese restaurants and help to increase traffic. The website also gives the impression that Japone has a relatively up-market ambiance. So, the actual ambiance was a surprise, even though I didn't mind the ambiance.

The food was wonderful, but I felt the decor and and furniture could use an upgrade or refinish. The current look makes you a bit scared to go inside and eat, because it gives you a sense of uncleanliness, but after you sit down and get your food, the presentation and taste of the food is excellent.

From Our Editors

Before guests to Japone—or its less-formal sister eatery, Café Japone, located upstairs—even take their first bites, they notice the restaurant’s unusually colorful environment: an attached lounge area dubbed Sango Sho surrounds patrons in oceanic hues and fiber-optic luminescence, and regular DJ performances keep toes moving so that they don’t get caught by a shark. Karaoke kicks off at 9:30 p.m. every night in both Japone and Café Japone, giving guests two places to show off their pipes on a continually updated list of the latest hit English, Japanese, and Spanish-language tracks.

To keep mouths happy, Japone's French-trained chef fuses Japanese and French flavors. Entrees include curried jumbo shrimp and scallops, plated with fresh veggies, japanese mushrooms, and a dollop of rice, while sushi specialties include the Arizona roll with shrimp tempura and carrot.
