Harney sushi year after year is the most consistent place for sushi. In my opinion they always have the freshest fish and the saki selection is vast.

Excellent food! I loved the spicy seafood miso soup. It was a nice twist on the traditional miso. They have an excellent selection of signature rolls. And it's in Old San Diego so you can take a nice walk after eating.

The food was excellent in a slightly funky space. The music was a little loud making conversation difficult but the quality and flavors made up for it.
