I love the food. The environment was a little too busy, especially for a mid-week night out, but the booths are pretty private. We had a fairly long wait in the bar, but the bar is pretty cool and they make great lemon drops!
Cafe Japengo is one of the best restaurants I have had the pleasure of visiting! Their menu was not only enticing, but worth every penny. The atmosphere and music intertwined well with our evening. The severs were knowledgeable and genuinly interested in assisting us with our selections. The quality of the fish from the sushi bar was impecable. Should the server not mention any specials, inquire, because they are usually a rare find. The razor clam was out of this world...and the LIVE amaebi...outstanding. The staff were all quite good looking, as if it were a theme of Cafe Japengo, and their service hit the mark. When you arrive, ask about Tengu...you may get a few different stories, but all are entertaining. Over all, Cafe Japengo gets an A+. Visit this establishment ASAP!
It's definitely a great find if your looking for the trendy happening sushi dining experience. Overall the general public would have no complaints from the menu. As I have a true appreciation for authenticity of the culture and food...sometimes the best are not always the most expensive and are usually not known to the general public. You definitely have to have an in if you want to find those.
Excellent business Lunch spot. Good happy hour. Normal pricing is a bit more expensive than other top quality sushi spots, but the quality and presentation is absolutely top notch--the High price doesn't beat out the quality--5 stars. Quite the �Place to be seen� on weekend nights.
Cafe Japengo is definitely in my top 5 places for good sushi. It isn't too expensive, some rolls a little more than others, and is not way overpriced like some places I have been. I haven't been there for Happy Hour, but it looked like they had some great Happy Hour specials also!
