Harney Sushi crafts high-quality Japanese food in a beautiful, upscale restaurant in north San Diego. The restaurant has won awards multiple years in a row for its sushi.
Harney Sushi might have the best ambiance of any sushi restaurant you know. You won’t find any sushi belt here. When you walk into Harney you’ll see huge banners covered with classic Japanese art and a giant tropical fish tank behind the bar. Harney claims that’s the only sake bar in San Diego. To top it off, there’s live music here every Thursday night, a great pairing to the relaxed, warm atmosphere.
All of the fish here is sustainably sourced. The fish Harney sources is often caught using methods that reduce bycatch, are not genetically engineered, and receive the Best Choice rating by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch, a program that creates science-based recommendations that help consumers and businesses make ocean-friendly seafood choices. Even the beef, pork and chicken are all natural and raised and harvested in the U.S.
