    Meiji really goes above and beyond with their sushi. Not only was the presentation outstanding to look at, they also go the extra mile with taste as well. Also the soft shell crab tacos might be on of the best appetizers I have ever had. I highly recommend them to anyone who stops in. If sushi is not your thing the grill items will satisfy you beyond expectations as well.

    Meiji surpassed our expectations and will now be one of our frequent date night spots. The servers suggestions were spot on - from sashimi salad and sushi to the great mixologist gems behind the bar - this place gets our highest marks!

    This was my second time to dine at Meiji and it did not disappoint. Our waitress Adrienna was knowledgable and friendly. We had lunch here on a Thursday to celebrate my 14th Anniversary and the entire experience from start to finish was wonderful! I'm still dreaming of that decadent toro! I would absolutely recommend Meiji AND Adrienna to my friends!

    Great tuna tataki but overall the food was just OK. Met expectations but didn't exceed them. The server was pleasant, attentive, and knowledgeable about the fish though another member of staff carried an open bag of garbage through the dining room. Bleh. The crowd was noticeably geriatric but it's probably just that side of town. Not vastly overpriced but the same cash elsewhere would've scored a much tastier plate. Fayetteville remains in need of a really great sushi little joint.

    Who knew one could get truly exceptional Japanese food in Fayetteville, Arkansas! Inspired sushi from Japan-trained chef accompanied by--get this--fresh wasabi. Lots of things wrapped in thinly sliced fresh daikon. Really good creamy pork ramen. Vegetarian selections, including a ramen. An impressive array of sakes--even a sake flight. Service was a bit slow, but knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Interior, pleasant, open, and calming, not overly decorated. Overall, I was impressed.

    Delicious, fresh sushi and great apps! The staff was so friendly and the sushi chef was personable. We tried many different items on the dinner and drink menus and were so impressed. The decor/ambiance could use a boost, but that's hardly anything to complain about. Overall, this is a very good restaurant!

    We were very impressed with both the sushi and cooked entrees, and will return to try others. Wine selections were unfamiliar to us but included a few new favorites. Meiji's interior decor is comfortable with clean lines, but also a bit sparse. Food was well-coordinated from the kitchen so everyone in our party received meals around the same time. Sushi combo rolls are a great way to step out of a comfort zone; each we tried was fantastic.
