Diner Reviews
  • "Reservation made for two, weekday, 6:30. Place nearly empty so why put a couple at the one table that is right by the door to the kitchen and right by servers counter where they pick up the food. Service was slow, taking too long to return after saying "I'll give you a few minutes." Menus were left on the table throughout the meal. And surprisingly, the food was bland."

  • "Enjoyed our visit. 4 of us shared 2 apps, Sashimi platter, 2 rolls and a dessert cheesecake roll. All great for sharing! Especially dessert roll - perfect 8 piece sushi looking dessert - easy to share. Sashimi was very fresh. We like to wrap rolls in cucumber instead of rice and they will do that on any roll! (no rice at all, then)"

  • "This place is good with good food. The place is usually energetic and can sometimes mean you need to speak up to order."

  • "I took a girl, now my girlfriend, on a first date to your restaurant on a Saturday night. I've been to this location before, and thought it to be a great place for a first date, and it did not disappoint. The service was helpful, the food was good and arrived in a timely fashion, and the experience itself was great. We will most likely be returning on future dates."

  • "We were very pleased with our meal at The Drunken Fish. They have excellent Sea Bass, if you like fish. The make over of the restaurant was long overdue, and is now much more comfortable."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "As I was eating my sushi... I found a piece of plastic wrap in one piece. I am a chef and I understand that the fish is wrapped in plastic while being chilled. Anyways, the manager was notified and when Andy came over , he was not apologetic at all. He simply said," well the fish is wrapped in plastic and this happens sometimes!" What?! I'm sorry but plastic was not listed as an ingredient so it should not be in my food...ever!"

  • "We dine here often. Always good sushi, good service, and a good time. My only suggestion is that they should expand the Bar area if possible"
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "The atmosphere was great and the food was good too. I wish we would have had better service I understand that she was busy but she wasn't very prompt or attentive to any of her tables. The martinis were wonderful but the one mixed drink I had taste like soda."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "The food was good, not fantastic. The waiter we had was terrible. If we had paid full price I would have been very disappointed. I always feel like the waiter makes or breaks the experience at a restaurant and unfortunately this was not a good experience. We only get a "date night" once a month and this was not a positive experience."

  • "I love Drunken Fish sushi. Wide variety of options for new sushi eaters to expert sushi taste buds. Reasonably priced and always offering deals/coupons/happy hours. My favorite sushi place"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The food is always great but the service is always slow. I have visited The Drunken Fish many times service has been slow on every occasion with one exception. Last visit I requested more wasabi and it was not delivered until we were more than half way through our meal."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "We have always enjoyed dining at the Drunken Fish, and this time was no exception. The signature rolls are always very good, but this time it seemed that the classic rolls were just a little bit overlooked in terms of presentation and preparation. The service was fine but my wife had to have me read nearly everything to her from the menu, because the lighting was just a bit dim and the contrast on the menu was poor. If they expect you to read in the dark, then maybe a dark or black background on the menu is not a great idea."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Enjoyed the food although it does fall a bit short of expectations. Sashimi was OK, but was mistakenly delivered before the appetizer overall the food and service was good. For a Midwest Japanese restaurant Drunken Fish is good, but would have a hard time to compete with the ones you find in CA and Japan."

  • "We have never had a bad experience here! Food is amazing & the martinis are to die for! I think we've tried every one! Great Happy Hour too!"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Waited 25 min for order to be taken 35 min before our drinks arrived Waitress had basically no knowledge of menu couldn't advise us on what to order. Another couple spoke to manager as they waited 45 min on food and never received part of their order. Manager didnt handle it particularly well, making their waiter come over and apologize. Which is awkward at best. We waited 45min for food as did the table behind us (so 3 tables w 2 waiters had exceptionally slow service this has to go back to management.) Manager appeared to be waiting and serving instead of running the restaurant. Something was wrong with the water, although clear it tasted dirty. Food was very good."

  • "The sushi is always delicious at Drunken Fish and the salad with ginger dressing is a good starter. They make a great dirty martini with bleu cheese stuffed olives."

  • "The night went well the whole evening, however, when my wife told our server that it was my birthday this is where it turned south. She asked if they did anything special and the server said that they did in fact and gave us a list of items I could have to celebrate my birthday. I ordered one of the items and we sat there for 20 minutes waiting for the item. I then asked the manager what was taking so long and they told me they were backed up and that my server said that we had already left. Other than that everything else was fine."

  • "We have had sushi 1 time before and was not impressed but was recommended to Drunken Fish and we fell in love. Our waitress Tiyana I think was her name recommended Starburst and I thought it was FABULOUS!! My boyfriend had Kamakazi and he was THRILLED as well...everything was perfect and we will definately be back with a groupon of course :) Thank you for a great night out."

  • "Very good sushi with a very friendly and smiling waitress. Enjoyed spending my 5th year anniversary here with my fiance."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "The sushi is good, but a little too non-traditional for my taste. Also, there seems to be asparagus in just about every roll. I love me some asparagus, but not in my sushi. Good mixed drinks, yummy appetizers, and the noodle dishes are also fantastic. I will definitely go back."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "The sushi was delicious and arrived promptly at our table. The fried calamari was so-so, more fried dough than squid, and the chicken katsu was a bit dry. Service was excellent and efficient. The very good rating for food really applies to the sushi, for which the restaurant is known."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "The best sushi in town and excellent late night happy hour deals. The atmosphere is perfect for date night too!"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Have always enjoyed the West Port Drunken Fish until this last visit. The sushi and sashimi were delicious but the service was excruciatingly slow. When we sat down our drink orders were taken immediately, however it took over 10 minutes for them to arrive. The waitress then set down the drinks and disappeared again without taking our order. When a gentleman in a tie came over to fill our waters and we mentioned something, he totally disregarded us. I can understand and appreciate this if it were busy, but it wasn't. I can also understand and be accepting of slow service if it is acknowledged with a simple I am sorry for the wait. I have waited tables and I know it is not easy, but my advice is to address it not dismiss it."

  • "I took my girl friend here for a surprise snack before our evenings Valentine's day festivities started. Our waitress was fantastic and the food was phenomenal! I would love to go back and try it again when We didn't have so much going on. Seriously fell in love with this place!"

  • "We have heard from several people how great Drunken Fish was. Well, we were expecting outstanding Sushi. It was only OK. Actually, the lobster appetizer, Wonderwoman sushi, and another sushi were actually pretty bland. Not bad,... but not much flavor. Very disappointing. The service was great. ...very attentive. Atmosphere was kind of noisy, but actually a lot of sushi places we've been have been noisy. We are actually spoiled because we spent a couple years in Seattle where the sushi was outstanding....so maybe it's not fair to compare to that. I will say that they had a wonderful Kung Fu martini which was basically a ginger martini....so if that is an important feature to your meal, I recommend that."

  • "We've been to Drunken Fish several times. We love the fresh sushi, shrimp tempura and lots of other yummy finds. We were celebrating my son and husband's birthday and so it was a special treat. This last visit was marred by bad service though. We had to ask for extra wasabi and ginger 3x and 20 mins later, our sushi was almost gone. We had to wait about 15 mins or so for the complementary birthday dessert and the waitress did not even say Happy Birthday when she brought out the dessert! She simply flopped it down on the table and said "enjoy" then quickly ran off! When she brought the check, there was no apology. If she had been a better waitress, she could have turned our table around much quicker and she could have made more tips."

  • "Took the boyfriend there for his birthday dinner--he lived in Japan for 6 years and likes most Asian food. He likes to be spoiled on his birthdays, and this seemed to meet his approval. Being a vegetarian, I would have enjoyed more options but I found plenty to fill me up. A little bit pricey, but again the point was to impress the Man. Very nice place, very good food."
