"Picture-Perfect Sushi Experience"

Nagisa upholds its legacy as the most traditional, authentic Japanese restaurant in Newport Beach. Owner Ray and his second-in-command Reggie continue to be hands-on with restaurant operations, dutifully serving hordes of local regulars and the errant out-of-towner. The decor matches the cuisine's authenticity, wooden walls, subtle Japanese decor and delicate instrumental music combining to create the perfect ambiance for such refined fare. Fresh fish and immaculately presented sashimi is only part of the reason locals have flocked to this location since 1982, a wide selection of more substantial (and Westernized) dishes such as tempura and chicken or beef terriyaki also available. Shellfish deserves a special mention for the massive, yet balanced flavors, the baked clam and "Sue's Mussels", a platter of fresh mussels in a delectable soy sauce-based marinade, some surprising and delightful choices. If owner Ray's service can seem brusque to newcomers, it is only because he saves his real adoration for repeat local guests, many of whom have candid photos hanging right over the register in the back. With its quality ingredients, skilled chefs and picture-perfect atmosphere, it's hard to find a better sushi experience, let alone better sushi, anywhere else than local favorite and hidden gem Nagisa.
