Reviews for Ijo Izakaya

Not a fan. Agedashi tofu was super fishy (bonito flakes are normal but they really overdid it for a vegetarian dish). Yellowtail carpaccio would have been good but it was warm, because the lion roll is somehow heated! If you're going to heat or cook sushi, let us know! Also they don't have avocado rolls as an option so I had to call and ask. They told me to buy cucumber rolls and specify avocado. Kind of lame, how hard is it to edit the menu to add a standard item?

My husband and I got lunch here yesterday and although it's not my top Japenese spot in the area, it was definitely solid and has lots of great and different menu items! I got a bento box with shrimp tempura and a salmon roll, and my husband got one of the restaurant weeks deals which was tako yaki and chicken katsu. There was a lot of food and good quality for the price.

My go to Japanese when I'm in this area before COVID-19. Today I got the food from here again and I was pleasantly surprised that the quality was still superb! My sashimi was super fresh and the udon was perfectly cooked with pleasant flavor. Thank you for providing quality food and excellent service during these unprecedented times!
