We ended up ordering too much for the 4 of us, so I'll just list it all out below.
|Panko-Crusted Fresh Ahi Sashimi|
|Matsuhisa Style Miso Butterfish|
Crispy Fried Calamari - with a spicy Japanese cocktail sauce. The calamari was above average as it wasn't too greasy and it was lightly battered. The cocktail sauce was okay. I would have preferred a spicy chipotle mayo dip instead of the cocktail sauce.

|Seared Ahi Salad|
|Asian Shrimp Cake|
|Sansei Sashimi Trio|
|Spicy Japanese BLT Roll|
|Seared Foie Gras Nigiri Sushi|
|Tempura Fried Macadamia Nut Ice Cream|
Service at Sansei was very good. Our server was around quite often and moved very quickly and efficiently. The food came out surprisingly quickly and we found our table out of real estate quite often. She was also super nice and always smiling.
The restaurant is a decent size and they fit a lot of tables in the space. It was very busy and we saw many parties turned away because they didn't have reservations. My advice: make reservations!
Food: Exceptional. Almost every dish was fantastic. Go with the award winner list and you can't go wrong.
Service: Very good. The server was super nice and efficient.
Setting: Good. The restaurant space was average, but the location is quiet with plenty of parking, and the tables were very clean.
Value: Good. The 25% discount is a great deal, but the prices are a little steep to begin with. The fantastic food makes up for this somewhat.
