I thought the food here was really good! It's a very popular place with a great location in the heart of Ballard. I hadn't really tried sushi before I ate here and the food here was so good that it inspired me to try out other sushi places. All the other sushi places I have tried since then make me realize that Sam's Sushi is not a bad choice for sushi at all.

The sushi chef at Sam's Sushi in Ballard is exercising his creative style to positive affect. Last night I had the special "Monkey Brain's". A tempura mushroom with several types of spicy fish and roe all cut in bite size pieces and arranged aesthetically on the plate with 4 pieces of nigiri. Very delicious.

My husband and I have been going to Sam's weekly for a year. The service is fantastic, and the sushi has always been really good. The miso soup is soooo good! The prices are reasonable. It is our favorite Ballard spot. We have gone to other sushi places in Seattle and elsewhere but we keep coming back to Sam's

Pros: fast service, good sushi

I love this place! Every time I've gone to Sam's I've had really good sushi (fresh, big pieces) and the prices are really reasonable. I just took some friends visiting from out of town there the other night-- there were 4 of us and we stuffed ourselves silly with sushi and sake, and the bill was still less than $100! I've never been disappointed here. The service is good, the atmosphere is nice and casual, and the servers are friendly. What's not to like?

Pros: big pieces, good service, affordable

Cons: hard to find parking in ballard

Nice Ballard neighborhood sushi bar, nothing too exciting about the place. The fish is fresh but the rolls seem to be too large. The staff has always been nice. It is a good place to dine before you go to the movies. The servers are very educated on the different varieties of fish offered.

My husband and I had high hopes for this place since we just moved here and had heard that Ballard had good restaurants. The sushi was not good, the combo plate my husband got had 5 pieces of lumpy, stringy sushi and it cost way more than it was worth. Overall, the sushi restaurants are terrible in Seattle and this one was the worst by far.

Cons: Bad Food, Bad Value

I really don't understand the negative reviews. I just ate at this restaurant last night and had a great experience. I was seated immediately at the sushi bar even though it was the busy dining hour. Complimentary water and hot green tea were brought to me as soon as I sat down. All servers smiled at me. All orders were served fresh, delicious, and as requested with huge gobs of wasabi and ginger.

so i lived right by sam's for a while and started going there and then have tried SO many sushi places in seattle since. we always seem to come back here. it's so good, the sashimi cuts are big and really delicious and all the rolls i've tried are awesome. i can't believe no one likes this place. i guess it's not for the people who don't really like sushi . . .
