"Oddly empty for a friday night at 9pm. This place is hip looking, inside off the lobby of an asian hotel. Sushi, salmon collar and miso cod were OUTSTANDING, and a fair, but not great value. Everything else was ok, not bad. Pretty big Sake menu, but when I asked questions, the server knew NOTHING about sake. Brought one wrong dish. Didn't bring a breakdown with my check, so I'm not sure if they comped it. Have to park accross the street, or valet park for $6-7, and they don't seem to validate. Seems silly when they aren't busy."

"I've reviewed this restaurant before and believe it is one of the better Japanese restaurants in the South Bay. Great variety and very fresh seafood. Too bad it's not more busy. I think people are missing out by not going here more. I'm guessing it's because it is a hotel restaurant and many people do not think hotel restaurants are that good. This one is the exception."

"We enjoy this restaurant. Quality is quite high and they have a few unique items on the menu that you don't see in typical sushi restaurants. I think people do not go here enough because it's a hotel restaurant. Don't shy away. It is very good."

"The food and service at Ise Shima has been consistently excellent in the dozen or so times we have dined there. Friendly and efficient staff, excellent food, and a relaxed atmosphere where we did not feel rushed all added to an enjoyable evening with old friends. I would highly recommend Ise Shima as a special place to dine."

"We went for Sunday breakfast buffet. The food was good, but the service was very disappointing. After we were seated, nobody came by to take our order. We proceeded to get our meals, but nobody stopped by to check on us. There were about 3-4 waiters who were busy folding napkins and preparing the restaurant for lunch -- but I was surprised that nobody stopped by to check on us. The only time someone stopped by was to bring us our check."

"Went for dinner and was expecting to order from extensive on-line menu. When we arrived we were seated and told to help outselves to the buffet. There was no ordering from the menu, just the buffet. As we were starving, we went to the buffet which had many sushi and other Japanese dishes, both hot (tempura style) and cold. Am not sure that tempura and pot stickers are the best choice for buffet. My drink was great a tequila and orange juice called "Sunrise". The pick up of the completed plates was efficient. Deserts were very good. The check suggested at least a 15% gratuity, although aside from bringing the drink and stopping by to ask us how the food tasted, there was no actual service. Probably would not go back unless I could order off of menu. Very nice dining room which had not changed from when it was the previous restaurant. They should let people know that it is apparently buffet only on Saturday nite."

"We went here for Christmas Day dinner. Very good quality. Had wagyu filet. Very very tender. We also had the miso cod. Very fresh. We also had an assortment of appetizers and sushi. Delicious. Every item."

"Never fails to tantalize your senses and delight us, Ise-Shima excels at all levels. The salad bar is excellent, the offerings are superb, and the presentation is magnificent. Everyone in our party had a fabulous lunch. I, for one, will continue to return to this beautiful restaurant, as I am sure many other guests will do likewise."

"Though the ambiance was nice, the food was just so-so. I had the tempura lunch, and on a previous visit two weeks earlier I had the salmon lunch. The tempura was just mediocre; the salmon had little flavor so I asked for some teriyaki sauce. The service was really awful. We hardly saw the waiter, and when the food was delivered, the person serving the food did not which dish came with rice. The servers should at least be familiar with what is on the menu."

"No complaints about the food at all - top drawer. The service was very inexperienced. I'm not one to notice occasional errors. That is human. This was just disorganized. Drinks forgotten, orders forgotten, lack of control. Overall I would defiantly go back. Great food."

"We made a last minute reservation on Open Table because I messed up my reservation to Benihana for my wife's birthday. We ordered the Wagyu dinners and these reminded us of the Kobe Beef dinners we had in Kyoto while vacationing in Japan for a fraction of the cost. We will be back when in the mood for an excellent steak dinner."
