Overall good food and sake and a cool experience. The chef makes beautiful pottery the food is served on. However, the food while good overall fell a bit short of what we had hoped for considering the cost. The menu does change so it is possible another night we might have been more blown away.

Yamazushi was such a lovely, authentically Japanese experience. Each course was transcendent, flavorful and delicate. The sake pairing really took it to the next level. It was well worth the wait for such an intimate and special meal.

It's a little bit pricy but food and sake was fantastic.

It was an awesome experience eating at yamazushi. The decor, the atmosphere is very calming and soothing. All the sashimi is really good and melts in your mouth, but tempura could have been better considering the price point.

Had a fantastic birthday dinner here with my wife. I felt like I was back in Tokyo. Food and sake were top notch and service was perfect. I even received a gift bottle when I left. I wish I would say I will be back but it is hard to get a seat there. Highly recommend.

Amazing Kaiseki, in NC. Totally blown away. The authentic Japanese experience is awesome. The quality is off the chart, and is appropriately priced.
