    I went there for lunch during work the other day and food was good as usual. Friendly service, the sashimi was fresh and we were able to talk comfortably in a cozy setting. The lunch menus are great - reasonably priced and worth the money. I will go back!

    Such a large variety of classic and specialty rolls to pick from, and the prices cannot be beat! The service was very fast, although the restaurant was virtually empty due to it being a holiday weekend. Hands down a neighborhood gem and our new favorite sushi spot.

    ATLFoodie
    Dined on 3/15/2014
    Absolutely incredible food. The sushi menu was not only huge, but it had so many unique and delicious options, rather than your typical handful of regulars and a few super weird, non-appetizing ones. The service was slightly less than stellar at our upstairs tables, but otherwise things came out in a timely manner. Great prices as well for the quality and amount of sushi you get.

    They have excellent sushi; the fish is very fresh and the rolls are expertly prepared. The service is friendly and the location is great (and will be even more valuable once the Ponce City Market opens). Great place to get sushi.

    Try2BFairVIP
    Dined on 2/13/2014
    (caveat - ate here the Thursday nite of winter storm #2...so maybe short-staffed). That said, there weren't many people there either. Was about 10 mins after sitting we were acknowledged (they seated us, and it isn't a big place, we weren't hiding). Klunky service. They sat us on top of another couple (no need to - plenty of room), and since it was so quiet it was almost impossible not to be in a 4-way conversation. Food was decent, but wouldn't put the sushi up against any of the better restaurants. Calamari salad was very good I will say. But all in all, probably won't go back.

    The only thing what I could mention as negative for this place is the parking space situation. All spots outside for the restaurant where occupied and also the parking garage was full. So after 25 minutes search we parked in a side street and walked for a few minutes to the restaurant.

    We have eaten at Gekko several times, and were very disappointed this time. It took a long time for food to come, and there was more than 10 min between when food arrived for 3 of the 6 people at our table (mostly cooked food) and when the sushi arrived for the other 3. Both the spring rolls and the chicken katsu were quite overcooked as well. All in all, not what we are used to at Gekko, and we will think about finding another sushi place.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 1/11/2014
    I made the reservation for 9 people and when I got to the restaurant at my reserved time the host told me they did not have a table for 9. Our group had to wait an additional 20 minutes for them to prepare a table. After being seated it took 15 minutes before we were even provided with menus, it was another ten minutes before our drink order was taken. I felt terrible for our server - they were very understaffed and he had to work the entire upstairs (two large groups along with three other tables and the downstairs as well). While it took an entire hour for our food to actually make it to our table, it was great sushi. I think had they been prepared for a Saturday evening rush our dinning experience would have been completely different.

    This place was on scout mob so I chose to venture here and try things. The sashimi was fantastic as were the most exotic rolls we enjoyed. The kiwi roll was my favorite. The small slices were obviously succulent and juicy yet there was some heat at the finish from the spicy mayo. Wine list was limited, but everything was reasonable.

    The quality has gone down and the constant scoutmob promo that seems to last forever might be part of the problem. The service is still good. If you need a quick sushi fix this will do.

    Even though the sushi and sashimi were good, they were not above that average. It is difficult to find good sushi, but Gekko is a sure bet. the service was a little slow, they appeared to be understaffed. On the other hand it was friendly and on accurate with the orders.

    SO amazing!!! How isn't EVERYone eating here already?!!! It was so.good. A friend suggested this restaurant and we are sushi addicts that are extremely loyal to our fav place already, but Gekko is definitely the place to cheat on our usual. Even the little side ginger house salad had me digging down in the bowl embarrassingly desperate for more.lol! Oh, and by the way, the chicken teriyaki deserves an ovation...Nothing like I thought. I love the standard dish so I expected the standard, but this was ridiculous. Huge portion spread like tenderloin, seasoned like gormet. Ummmmmm!!!!!! ((Okay, before I start licking my lips, I'll end the review here...oh, and great polite service))

    Met up with a friend for sushi on a Friday evning and Gekko has Happy Hour sushi specials from 5:30-7pm! We tried the chicken kabob appetizers and they were seasoned to perfection!My friend got the delicious duck entree. It was so good that she placed a to go order of duck to have the next day. My sushi was so fresh and sweet; I didn't even need soy sauce on them. You've got to get the Gekko and the Dancing Eel rolls. They were prepared nice and tight and didn't fall apart when you pick them up.

    Very good sushi at reasonable prices. It is way better than the cheap Atlanta sushi places without paying the high end prices that are typical of good sushi prices in Atlanta. The dish, sunflower, is a very good sized appetizer that can be eaten as a dinner, except for a very hungry person and then just order one more roll or appetizer. Friendly staff. Valet parking makes it easy.
