    We had dinner reservations for two. At the last minute we had two family members that were going to join us and Hiro was very accommodating. As always the food was excellent. However the service was disappointing. They clearly did not have enough help for the evening. I know they were aware of the event that night due to the sign they posted on the door that stated happy hour would not be available due to the event. Not sure I understood why they could not offer happy hour just because of the concert. My four star rating is largely due to the great food. The avocado egg rolls are wonderful; I highly recommend them.

    I'm from out of state, took my boyfriend here for his birthday. I'm not a big fan of sushi, but he is so I tried some rolls with him and the server also gave suggestions as well. The first roll I tried was the Caterpillar Roll....not a fan of eel lol other than that it was great, then I tried a roll with tuna and tempura shrimp, sorry forgot the name of it, was delicious if not for that tuna! The main meal I had was Asparagus chicken which was good and he had chicken and broccoli, go figure right...anywho loved the location of the restaurant made it easy to bar hop and visit other places in the area. Great server, good food, good recommendation. Yay Hiro88, NY approves :-)

    I just wanted to say we love Hiro 88 and I had made reservations for a party of 6 birthday dinner Saturday night for my husband. We had 4 "non-sushi" people in our group (including 2 children) so I was nervous but they loved the variety of stir-fry available and we got them hooked on some of the rolls after trying them!!!! The restaurant is beautiful, the seating was awesome, and our waiter Phillip went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed. In fact, when my husband and I return I want to request his service area! We are newer to Sushi also but have discovered a love for it and my husband is addicted to your crispy garlic beef! Thanks again and please tell Phillip we enjoyed having him serve us. Stacy McIlnay

    The food a Hiro 88 was very tasty, as usual. My husband and I shared a couple small plates, and then a giant sushi and sashimi platter. While the prices are a bit steep, the sushi was very good, so the prices were worth the tasty tuna! The best part was our server. Kyle was fantastic, especially because at one point I spilled soy sauce everywhere, and Kyle was right there to clean it up. He was speedy, and offered suggestions. We'll definitely go back,

    The meal was okay, but nothing to write home about. The sashimi was cut into extraordinarily thick pieces, making it difficult to eat, and it wasn't the freshest looking ahi we have ever seen. The udon soup and mongolian beef were delicious. The sea bass was marginal. But our real complaint was that our server was obnoxious and arrogant. We won't be back.

    Dined on 3/30/2014
    Overall 3.5 out of 5. Great food. Decent atmosphere. Fair price. I personally am not a fan of the bench seating because you're too close to other diners. We went on a date for two, and there is no sense of privacy. Both of us were worried about whether others could overhear our conversation, especially because we could overhear theirs. Again, no sense of privacy and therefore I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for something more romantic.

    A group (4 of us) went to lunch on a Sunday afternoon! Not our first visit. Once again, the food was superior as was the service. We had a boat (literally, a boat) of food...a mix of all sorts of sushi. It was simply delicious...every bite. Each of us had a cocktail...expertly prepared and as delicious as the food. Sunday afternoon's are "happy hour" prices all day so you can't beat the price for the selection and the service. Hiro 88 is a MUST for anyone who enjoys superior sushi, great service, and a light but classy atmosphere.

    I have had sushi at a few other places before but Hiro88 is now my favorite. Their menu has great descriptions of the food items and their staff is very friendly and helpful. The decor is very modern chic giving you an upscale dining experience. The quality if the food as well as the presentation is fantastic, and to top it off your wait is very short. I will continue to make Hiro88 my go-to-sushi restaurant and recommend to everyone.

    I love sushi and was excited to try Hiro88 in Old Market. Patrons were waiting in line when we arrived but our party was promptly seated a few minutes prior to our 7pm (on-line) reservation. The service was good but the lighting was a bit too dark for me. I ordered the large sushi combo and a firecracker shrimp roll to share with my son and daughter. The asparagus salmon roll in the combo was savory and delicious; my son and I were in friendly competition for it. There was a nice selection of 8 nigiri that I thoroughly enjoyed (shrimp, salmon, tuna, icka, etc...). My wife, son and daughter also enjoyed orders of Mongolian Beef, Imperial Chicken and Broccoli Shrimp. All the food was great; we'll be back.

    Dined on 2/16/2014
    I was pleasantly surprised by the ambiance created by Hiro and the effectiveness of my reservations. I had made a reservation 3 days before me and my girlfriends date and was happy to find when I got there I was seated immediately, by-passing a whole line of people that had been waiting to get a table but had not made reservations. My appetizer was great which was a nice shrimp tempura, it was perfect and on time. We were told that the sushi was running behind by a lot because it was packed, but we got it it seemed right on time. The lighting was great and moody, and the noise was great, but merely energetic. We had a great time, I would highly recommend it as the best date night sushi restaurant.

The server made sure that we were taken care of, and the sushi itself was great. The octopus did not taste so fresh, but when you live in Nebraska, seafood is at a premium. I give Hiro 88 two thumbs up!
