I am a sushi geek. Morimotos is very good but-overprized (duh!) and a little too pretentious for a down to earth guy like me. My money is on Sushi Haku. So good so fresh. I have to say. I won't spend money at Sushi Mambo anymore. Bad service and bad fish the last 2 times. Sorry-just keepin' it real.

Thank you for jumping in to get the conversation started! It's great to have some info on Sushi Haku and if you get a chance to leave a review on their Patch listing, Matt, that would be a big help for them—they are still new to town and could benefit from a local's recommendation. http://napa.patch.com/listings/sushi-haku As to Sushi Mambo, sorry to hear you didn't have good experiences; the folks there, on both sides of the knife, have always been great to us. I hope you gave them a chance to make things right ...

I have to say that I love Sushi Haku too. The owner is always there and she's very accommodating when you have a special request. The sushi chef knows MANY more rolls and items than you see on the menu. We just go sit at the sushi and let him make us various things based on how we feel that day. Darn..they are closed on Monday because this is making me want to go for a visit!

Went to Eiko's on Friday and I really enjoyed it. Went to Sushi Haku last fall and thought it was good also. I would give them both a tie. I never liked Sushi Mambo and never thought it was very good. My wife agreed with me when I took her to a couple of places in my hometown and she was blown away how good they were.

I have never had a bad experience at Sushi Mambo. The menu has several new items and the bento box special I had on Friday was great. We were a very large party and the wait-staff was very accommodating with our various ways of paying.

Another vote for Haku. Staff is fantastic and the fish is always fresh.

My vote overall is Eikos #1 with a strong second for Sushi Haku and Mambo. I've been a patron of Eikos when it was first Fujiya where the Napa outlets are now. Eikos quality and high standards of food and service are superb. Besides the fact that I adore Eiko and she always welcomes me with a hug when she's there. My daughter was a server at Sushi Mambo and I know they serve fresh fish and take great pride in what they do. I enjoy sitting at their counter and visiting with the chefs. Sushi Haku I've only been a few times but they have been consistently good as well! You really can't go wrong with all three of those. D. Lyons

My vote goes to Sushi Haku. Intimate, friendly, family run dining experience. Sashimi dishes fresh, delicious and works of art. Extensive sushi menu. My husband and I are regulars, and always treated like honored guests.

I have enjoyed lunch a couple of times at Eiko. Great food, great atmosphere and the service was exceptional. I predict it will enjoy a long life serving customers downtown. And, if the place is good enough for my trainer at the Wellness Center, it's good enough for me!

Sushi Haku is delicious and a nice dining atmosphere, cozy without being too small and a clean modern feel - closed on Mondays though. Mambo, sorry but too expensive and fish never tastes fresh, more like grocery store kind.
