Don't try to go there if you are using a passport as identification. I recently lost my id and thought "hey, my passport is good enough for EVERY other restaurant and bar in town, not to mention AIRPORT SECURITY, so I should be able to get a drink at the local sushi place"... WRONG.

Maybe it's because I'm a college student, maybe it's because they just didn't like me, I don't know. I was treated rudely by the waitress, apologized to by managers (after being told by the waitress that SHE was the manager which was really just sad and pathetic). The real management even sent us comps to compensate us for the maltreatment we endured, and assured me that until my new id came in the mail (which takes quite some time) that a valid passport would suffice. They wrote us a letter apologizing and saying that they would fix the problem immediately that they sent with the comps and everything.

Then we called back to use the coupons because we wanted to make sure that this problem had been fixed before going back, and the same damn waitress claiming to be the manager (her name is MIsty and she should be fired immediately for incompetence and rudeness), informed us that passports STILL are not accepted. We called management again because we were upset and thought that, you know after a letter of apology and a good deal of coupons, that they had fixed things. The management apparently changed their mind over night and decided that passports are no longer acceptable at their establishment. WHY SEND THE LETTER OF APOLOGY AND COMPS AT ALL IF YOU AREN'T GOING TO FIX THE PROBLEM?!?

So, if I have a relative visiting from another country they are not allowed to have a drink there? NO FOREIGN PERSON WITHOUT A VALID CALIFORNIA ID CAN HAVE A DRINK WITH DINNER? Sounds kind of suspicious to me. I feel like they were discriminating against us because we were college students, although we always leave massive tips for good service. For whatever reason they treated me and my friend with EXTREMELY POOR SERVICE, and I would never recommend going there to anyone, especially college students that expect to be treated well by waitstaff while spending money on an expensive meal like sushi.

There is no such thing as an ABC law that disregards the use of passports as a valid form of identification, and I am very upset that they attempted to insult my intelligence by trying to convince me of that.

I Just thought that I would let people know about my experience so they wouldn't have to endure the same things that I did with this establishment. If you want good sushi with exceptional service, take the 10 minute drive down to Petaluma to Kabuki or Hiro's on Petaluma Boulevard. At least they appreciate a good customer and have never hassled me about my passport while I have had to use it.

The interior is beautiful, but the quality of sushi is not. My husband ordered the tuna poke salad which cost an arm and a leg and received mini pieces of tuna buried under a mountain of lettuce. A poke salad should at least consist of 50% of the salad, not worth the price. The spider roll "tarantula" roll, lacked flavor and appeal. The dragon and rainbow roll were decent, except again for the price. If you're looking to find a nice place to sit and eat and don't mind SPLURGING on "okay" sushi, this is the place for you. Wouldn't recommend this place because of the outrageous prices.

Boathouse is to Sushi what Olive Garden is to gourmet Italian food (an Americanized, homogenized version made with lower quality, less fresh ingredients). I suppose if you like rolls laden with sauces, then, the lack of freshness in & quality of the ingredients isn't particularly an issue. Perhaps Boathouse has found a niche with folks who like that sort of thing. Nothing wrong with that! However, as for sushi, there are far, far better places within a couple of miles, for a more authentic, high quality sushi dining experience. The fish at Boat House is not even in the same league as that at Gohan in Penngrove, or Sushi Hana in Rohnert Park, or even Ta-Ke Sushi in Rohnert Park. Maybe Boathouse is OK for novices, but even those new to sushi might be better served at one of the sushi bars mentioned above, where very fresh, expertly prepared, beautifully presented sushi is served. (Unless, one isn't really interested in the taste of ultra, fresh, buttery yellowtail or sweet, creamy sea urchin, but instead wants a giant roll with a jumble of not quite fresh fishes & sauces layered together.) Come to think of it though, even rolls are better when made with fresh ingredients . . . .and while Gohan & Hana are certainly pricier than Boat House, Ta-ke is comparably priced, offers many varieties of rolls, and all made with fresher ingredients. . . . but Boathouse does have the cute little boats theme. . . .won't find that nearby.

Friday is Sushi night at our house, we've made Boathouse our place. They have many different roles and some are quite unique. My husband loves the Mexican Roll and the Wet'n'Wild. I prefer the Kani Temperu Roll and the Hand Rolls for Lunch. They have great Lunch and Dinner Combo's too.

My husband and I recently visited Boathouse Sushi and were VERY impressed. I was sorry to see that another reviewer had such a poor experience. We had quite the opposite. The service was friendly and prompt. The sushi chefs put a slightly different twist in creating some of their rolls. Nothing bizarre, just kicked up a bit from traditional. My favorite was the crunchy roll. We've eaten at many sushi places in Sonoma County and we both felt this was by far the best we've had a quite awhile.

PROS: friendly staff, delicious food
CONS: some of the rolls were pricy

I was very surprised by how disappointing my experience was at boathouse. The sushi did not taste fresh. I left most of it on the plate. Flavors weren't pure - that is, it seemed like a mixture of foods were in open containers together and flavors had merged in a not so tasty way. The waiter took my plate never asking why I'd left so much on it. I brought it up and the waiter said they hadn't had many complaints. I didn't pursue it.

PROS: Kids might like the boat concept
CONS: Not the place for Fresh Sushi
