    Just moved here from Tennessee and hadn't found my new sushi spot yet. My cousin recommended this one right off the bat so I checked it out! Excellent food, great service (Sarah was great!), and great memories made with friends. I'll be back soon o.O

    They were out of a lot of things when we arrived on a Saturday at 5:30. Not a good sign. They had a specials menu, with most of it gone per the waitress. My wife ordered vegetable gyoza, and they were even out of that....which is a regular menu item. Weird. But, the food was good, and service was great. Restaurant was kind of empty when we arrived, and had not filled much when we left about an hour or so later. Not sure if this is a return place...

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    I really enjoyed the atmosphere and drinks. The service was phenomenal, our waitress was very attentive and personable. Overall everything was good, expect for the tables and chairs. For a pricey sushi place the tables were not big enough to hold all of our food and drinks, but that is not so bad. What would probably Make me question my return to the restaurant is the awful seating. The chairs are so uncomfortable my back was hurting after 10 minutes of me being there. There is a bar in the center of the back rest that digs into your lower back. It really is a shame that such a nice place went cheap on seating. To me it doesn't really matter how good the food is. If the seating is that bad I will probably not return to this establishment.

    Four of us got a great assortment of sushi. Two of us enjoy the more simple nigiri and two ordered the more complex maki. All were served very beautifully: Very fresh fish with just the right amount of rice. We also got a very informative lesson on sake. Highly recommended for experienced sushi lovers and newbies who have not had the pleasure yet.

  • Best Cocktails in Charlotte
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    If you're looking for an interesting place with a fun vibe, excellent food and the BEST cocktails in Charlotte, go to Pisces in midtown when Bob is behind the bar. Bob Peters is a Charlotte legend for good reason, his cocktails are amazing! We ate at the bar and Bob's food recommendations were spot on too. You have to try the Pork Belly Buns....incredible. My wife and I were out to have a great date...Bob and Pisces blew us away!

    Being from LA, I know my sushi standards are high, but the quality of fish here was just not that good. I didn't even eat one of my sushi pieces (which cost $3.50 PER PIECE by the way) because of the fishy taste. The food also took a while to come out despite there only being 2-3 other parties at the restaurant. Spicy garlic edamame was great though, but also cost around $7 for a small bowl. They did have good drink specials and the rolls seemed potentially tasty, maybe we just ordered the wrong things. Overall, just not worth it for the price.

    my wife and I both work in restaurants in Charlotte and happened to have saturday night off. I decided to try Pisces finally, after wanting to for many months. We both love sushi and we found that Pisces delivered on everything that we enjoy about our favorite sushi places. We both enjoyed some of their signature cocktails which went very well with the food. Our server was professional and friendly. Overall great experience.

    Even thought I don't live near The Metropolitan, Pisces appears to be a total neighborhood gem. Four of us sat outside the other night, when it just happened to be 1/2 price wine by the bottle night and it was delightful. Most enjoyed the hibachi dinner entrees and the shrimp and scallops were done perfectly. Service was very good and it proved to be a great evening, perfect weather and a great place.

    This place was awesome. The sushi was fresh not only literally but figuratively also. The presentation were very creative and the prep put a new spin on the old sushi roll. I would recommend this to any sushi lover. Also no be afraid to bring non sushi lover because they have a great Asian menu also. I will say this place can get into you wallet for dinner but well worth the money and the smile on my daughters face. Side not they had a live acoustic soloist that was just as wonderful.

    Pisces is one of my favorite local spots in Charlotte to grab sushi! I've heard some people say the fish portions are small, but each one of those people only went to the LUNCH buffet. What do you expect? Seriously? Even if you do go during lunch, get the "regular" menu. I'm not a fan of tempura rolls, so get the fresh stuff. My absolute favorite on the menu is the "Bagel Deluxe". It's not on the menu anymore, but they still can make it. Cheers!

    Had a wonderful night, here. The only complaint would be that the website is out of date and that they do not offer $5 apps during happy hour. But, they do still have the drink specials. If you are looking for a romantic night, request a booth, very private and quiet.

    Pisces offers moderately priced sushi that we enjoyed but would rate as average. The platings were well done (liked the slate plates), however, there was no 'Wow' flavor factor. Our server was diligent throughout the meal and patient with our request to split the bill amongst our group. Pisces has a neat bar and cool decor. Unfortunately, we felt the chill of cold air each time the door opened although we sat at the table closest to the back of the main area. All things considered, it was good but not great.

    My boyfriend and I are all about trying new restaurants in Charlotte. Of course, Restaurant Week is a wonderful time to take advantage of wonderful gems like Pisces. We dined at Pisces on a Tuesday evening around 9 and were the only patrons in the restaurant. Our server was very friendly and very informed of their menu. I always like that. Everything we had from wine to dessert was unique and delicious. It is easy to think that once you've eaten at several sushi spots you have seen a plateau in chef creativity. Pisces breaks the mold. Go, enjoy, and thank me later!
