    ABOVE and BEYOND SERVICE. I had just flew in from out of town; and my boyfriend and I stopped here for dinner without reservations on Saturday during restaurant week. Other nearby restaurants turned us down without RSVP so we were happy that they were able to accommodate us. It was a very busy night and our server didn't get to our table even though we had a few servers stop by to greet us and the manager that evening. My boyfriend and I did nothing that would've have seemed that we were unhappy but instead we were relaxing and chatting with each other. The GM came by with two appetizers on the house apologizing for our wait. I was so surprised because we were very content but the GM explained that they pride themselves with their customer service and wanted to make sure that our experience was to his expectations. We are so impressed! The food was fresh and delicious. We plan to come back often and highly recommend Japengo.

    Great sushi in San Diego! I ate here when I last visited La Jolla, and the sushi was fabulous! Their rolls were to die for, and the atmosphere was trendy and soothing at the same time. I tried a couple of different rolls, my favorite was the Japengo Special. I'd definitely go back!

    Great Atmosphere, Great Sushi! Incredible variety of Sushi and Pacific Rim cuisine for the Sushi beginner as well as the Sushi lover interested in sampling the talented Chef's gourmet Sushi concoctions. Great food, great service, great bar! Or sit by the cozy firepit outside on the patio and breathe in the warm, clean Southern California air. Highly recommended.

    I love this place and have been going there for years. I took my wife there last night for our anniversary. The drinks before dinner were creative and tasty. The non-sushi menu is robust for you fish-o-phobes but the sushi is simply awesome. Don't go if you are in a hurry, slow down and enjoy. Oh, and leave the kids at home.
