Bites Asian Tapas & Sushi Ratings and Reviews

The food was incredible and very reasonably priced. I loved the samosas and the red curry corn fritters. The drinks were delicious and it was so affordable. The only downside was that the service was a bit slow, we had to physically go find our waitress a few times.

The food is delicious, there are a lot of unusual menu items that make great for sharing. The chairs at the high top tables are HORRIFIC. Very uncomfortable and sit unusually forward, we asked to move to a low top once one came available and the request was accommodated. Overall the experience was great.

First time and will be returning ~ the food was very good and the service excellent. We especially enjoyed the small bites (salads & baos) and the sushi. Our server was very personable and is a true asset to this establishment. The place was decorated for Halloween ~ warm, friendly ambiance.

What a great place! The food, service, and experience was great. We sampled most of the small plates and enjoyed their $5 cocktail special. Our server was super helpful and attentive. Plus the owner shared a saki bomb with us! We had a fun time and will be back.

I just love this restaurant. Have eaten here several times for lunch, this was my first dinner, and as always, the food was really outstanding, service was great, atmosphere fun yet cozy, great back yard for outside dining, and prices are really great! This is an awesome restaurant!!!

Come hungry! The menu has a little bit of everything and will appeal to all. Our favorites: The Small Bites Korean Sliders and Tuna Tostado and the Signature Maki: Happy Pride.
The atmosphere is relaxed. There is seating in the back garden as well.

This is a great place. The reason I said "noise level high" was NOT because of the inside but outside-- on the back patio. Unfortunately, you have 4 or 5 air conditioning units that surround you. When they all kick on, it's really loud. Obviously, the restaurant can't control this. But otherwise, a wonderful neighborhood place.

Eclectic Asian food, served in small portion like Spanish tapas. There is a mix of Japanese, Chinese, Thai and other inspirations from South and Southeast Asia in the cuisine. The Thai tea ice cream is nice to freshen your palate at the end. Surprisingly, there seems to be no public Wi-Fi in the restaurant, or perhaps my waitress (whom I had a hard time understanding) didn't know the password.

We received extraordinarily bad service. We waited 30 minutes for a server, and once we finally did have a server, she acted like our presence was a nuisance. We had to flag her down every time we wanted to order, which is unacceptable for a tapas restaurant... Two of the plates we ordered never even came out.

Great for sharing and lots of fun things to try. Drinks were unique and good. I got the one with wasabi in it and it was surprisingly nice. The service was very whatever but maybe it was because we were at the front of the restaurant where it was less busy? Or maybe because our server was getting off work in an hour? Dunno but she didn't check up on us enough to see if we wanted to add dishes (tapas style) or see if we needed to order more drinks (we ended up going somewhere else for our second round cuz we were being neglected).

We had a great experience. The food was flavorful and plentiful, even for tapas/small plates. It was nice to get a mix of sushi and other options (bao, shumai, etc.) The drinks were very tasty and only $4 on the night we went! The patio is very spacious and quiet, which is always a find in the city. Service was very friendly and warm.

Our experience at Bites was excellent. The food was very good and reasonably priced. The only problem was with Open Table. We were looking for a BYOB restaurant, and Open Table had it listed under Free Corkage & BYOB. The manager said that they frequently had customers who also thought the restaurant is BYOB. Open Table needs to get their information right.

Great menu with many options. We tried several sushi rolls, as well as sashimi, and everything was excellent. I love miso soup, but have never had it with jalapeños - it was delicious and I'll make it that way from now on!

Bites is a neighborhood gem. The Wassup Wasabi drink is my favorite. The Crying Tiger hangar steak, tuna tostada, crab rangoon, fried rice are fantastic. Everyone in the group loved the drunk chicks fried chicken. All is good here.

We went for date night and enjoyed a wide variety of delicious bites. A little warm in the restaurant and the vinyl on the bench seating made for legs sticking to the seat, but otherwise a wholly enjoyable experience.
