Birthday Sushi

I want to have a quiet, romantic sushi dinner with my special someone. Suggestions for great sushi along with the ability to speak without a great deal of background noise would be appreciated. Added to the complexity is a Friday or Saturday night.

Thanks for your help

  1. Whatever you do, do not go to Tiger Sushi in uptown. Awful, overpriced food and even when the place is dead, it is always loud because of the music they have blaring in the background. My suggestion would be Obento Ya in Minneapolis. Excellent food and the setting is somewhat romantic.

    1. Origami in Minneapolis is probably the most quiet sushi joint I've been to in the TC. The sushi itself is also very good.

      1. I second the nomination for Origami in downtown Mpls. By far, my favorite sushi place in the twin cities. Good ambience. Incredible sushi. Not too loud.
        I don't think they take reservations though, but I've never had to wait long for a table if at all.

        1. Piling want Origami for great sushi and low background noise. Even better if you can sneak upstairs in a corner table, just to be cozy.

          Masu could be an option, but it would have to be later for Fri/Sat to be a bit more quiet.

          1. I am partial to Sakura in Downtown St. Paul.
