About us

Simple - Flavorful - Fresh

Fish Face Poke Bar, a small counter-service restaurant, offers food inspired by Hawaiian and Japanese cuisine. Our focus is POKE- a simple Hawaiian staple made with a few high-quality ingredients, not filler. But from hand rolls and sushi rolls to donburi and udon, we have a variety of options for almost anyone. From our ingredients to serving wares, we are aware of our impact on your health and that of the environment and we strive to provide more conscientious products.
