Gyuahama Sushi

This restaurant looks small from the front, but stretches way, way back, with small rooms and traditional Japanese seating. Comfy space. The sushi wasn't the best though... I just thought it was lacking. The salmon sashimi was not as buttery as I've had in the past, and the bluefin tuna sashimi was very, very red, almost purple. I thought I understood this to be the center of the tuna, which is super blood rich, and not as tasty as the outer parts of the filet. (No? Maybe we can start answering this on the general topics bd.) So we asked the waitress why it was so "beefy" tasting as well as having a metallic flavor. She said it depends on the type of tuna, what coast it's from, etc. makes each one different, but this wasn't like any I've ever had and I usually love these rich little slices. Also had yellowtail which was good, not great. Had two types of rolls, one spicy tuna which was, as my BF said, "a mayo bomb" and a cucumber/salmon roll which was just alright. We had a few pieces of regular sushi, red snapper and bass, and they were on the sweeter side, nothing remarkable.
I guess I just expected to have every bite be a perfect mouthfeel and fresh, clean flavor. At 85$ for two (we also each had two beers) it was a lot.
Any other experiences here?
