    My wife and I went here before the Pearl Jam concert. We started with the avocado egg rolls - they were unreal. We ordered three rolls of sushi and all three were excellent. Our only thought was that two of the rolls were a little big/wide, so they were kind of tough to eat without a knife to cut them in half. However, the taste and flavor were exceptional.

    I went to Hero88 with a few friends. We sat outside and the food was amazing. I defiantly recommend the west-coast roll, and their Sunday deals are the best! What was the most surprising however, was the face that an anonymous table picked up our bill, it was defiantly a night I'll remember for a while!

    We're big fans of Hiro now that they are in Lincoln. The sushi never disappoints. Servers are well-trained and know what they are talking about. We love: edamame and crab Rangoon appetizers, and the Wasabi stinger, golden gate, cinqo de mayo rolls, and the fatty tuna. Ask for fresh wasabi, they don't always have it. Great beers (I love Sophie, my husband likes the Japanese beers. Also great cocktails:jalapeño popper and the pomegranate mojito! The reverse happy hour is a good deal, with specials on food and drink (all day Sunday I think). The atmosphere is classy and hip, one of the best places to eat in Lincoln's new Haymarket.

    For starters, the food was delicious! The only draw back was that the server forgot to send my friend's order of kung pow chicken to the cooks and she didn't ever receive her soup. I will definitely go here again.

    Started our night at the bar with a generous pour of MaCallan 12 on the rocks. The rest of our party of six was running late and when I told the host he offered to talk them in. With his directions they arrived shortly and we were seated promptly. Our waitress, Diana, was very knowledgable and made some great suggestions. The Wasabi Stinger roll is great and the Sea Bass with Miso glaze was unbelievably good! Everyone also really enjoyed the edamame appetizer, especially with the spicy garlic sauce. Overall great service and great food.

    This was our second trip to Hiro88 and it was for Restaurant week. Would have been perfect except for the fact that our wait person was clueless and had no training apparently. On the food side, it was fantastic as usual and once we explained the menu to our wait person, the food showed up quickly. Great food, just needs to train the wait staff.

    We had reservations at 6pm to allow time for 7:30 concert. Arrived early, seated immediately. Friendly waitress but service extremely slow. Meal did not strive until 7:10 despite server's assurance she had spoken to both kitchen and manager. Several tables who arrived later got food before us. Despite supposed comment to manager we heard nothing from him/her and got no discount or free dessert or similar. Salmon and sea bass excellent; ribs unimpressive.

    I received a call the next day from Hiro to confirm. I was told that dining time for parties of five or more (we had six) would be limited to two hours so Hiro could accommodate all diners on such a busy concert night. Fine by us, since we were attending the concert. Wrong! Our reservation was at 5:30 pm and the concert began at 7:30pm. We arrived on time and ordered cocktails. When our server returned with drinks we ordered appetizers. When our appetizers arrived we ordered dinner. WELL OVER AN HOUR LATER, at about 7:20, our food arrived. Needless to say, we missed the beginning of the concert. Super disappointed! The table next to us was in the same predicament! Great food was overshadowed this time! No recommendation on concert nights!

    We visited on a Saturday evening and the place was busy. Staff was very friendly and the food was terrific. Our seating was a bit close to the tables next to us as we were a party of 2. The noise level is on the high end which is ok just not what I expected. It wasn't awful but was noticeable. Our service was great as was the food which in the end is the most important aspect to me. Our sushi was prepared well and tasted even better!

    The ambiance at Hiro 88 is nice, it has a great onyx bar and very modern decor. Our server, Sarah, was quick to check on us and supply drinks and appetizer. We had the Miso Sea Bass and it was super moist and cooked to perfection. I've had Sea Bass all over the world, and this could be the best yet. I will be back many times to enjoy the lunch and dinner. You will not be disappointed at Hiro 88.

    Just visited Hiro 88 for the first time. Ended up visiting during happy hour, which was great as my girlfriend and I were able to get 5 different rolls for under $30. My girlfriend isn't a fan of raw sushi, and our waitress was very helpful in recommending good rolls that didn't contain any raw ingredients. The sushi was fantastic, the atmosphere was busy, but not overly loud. Highly recommend! (Especially during sushi happy hour!)

    Bar was understaffed on a Thursday at 6 p.m. Bartender was absolutely great and gave excellent recommendations, but volume of orders outweighed ANYONES ability to serve in a timely manner. Our waitress was not attentive enough.We Waited way too long for drinks AND food based on guest ratio. Food was great but Mongolian beef just a bit too salty. Need to have low sodium soy at every table too if food is going to start out that salty. Service was maxed out. Not enough staff

    The noise level was a bit distracting the night we went. However, the food, the service, the scenery and ambience exceeded our expectations greatly. It was obviously quite busy with the NCAA games going on across the street, but we felt our server was very attentive in spite of that. It was my wife's first time having sushi, and she was THOROUGHLY impressed. We will be back :-)

    The food and service were great. There were alot of young babies and families close by, which was not quite the mood of the evening we were looking for. Also, I felt that the table for two wasn't quite big enough for the amount of sushi we like to order. I felt like we were cramped for space within the room and at our table.

    I went with a group of friends and we had a great time and really enjoyed the food. Even our midwest girlfriend with a desire for simpler foods (i.e., she grew up eating chicken and potatoes, and hasn't moved too much beyond that) was able to find a dish that suited her tastes. The rest of us shared a boat (literally) of sushi. Fantastic.

    Sushi spot everyone should hit! We went for a date night and it was during boys state basketball. The scene outside was part of our experience while we talked and ate! Canopy street side of Hiro is all windows so you feel like part of the Railyard scene. We used the groupon and had a reservation so the bill was $46 with 20% tip! My wife had the Las Vegas roll and I had the 13 PC Nigiri. We also shared the lg. vase of warm house sake. Highly recommend the meals and my wife actually liked the sake!
