affordable & fab tasting
Our server was really helpful and recommended some great dishes. We had a coule of the specials which ended being the best idea as they tasted amazing.
This restaurant is in the middle of Lincoln road so very hustle and bustle, inside its really noisy with load music, but you have to weigh that up against the likelihood of Sobe rain! We sat outside and it was fine - good for ppl watching.

Hot, energetic, fun
Had an amazingly helpful waiter. All of the food was delicious! Price was not bad- we got apps, gorged ourselves on sushi, $65 bottle of wine (cloudy bsy sav blanc is my fave for spicy sushi) AND dessert for total of $200 including a fat tip :). Highly recommend

Sushisamba - a fun top pick
Took my family to SushiSamba and we had a great time. Monday night 7 pm so it wasnt too busy. No little kids screaming so that was a relief. Food was really good!
Our server Nicole was excellent. She made good suggestions and guided us through family style ordering.
Would definietly go back!

We were there on a Friday
We were there on a Friday night, eating outdoors. It was packed with people. In spite of that, service was still very good. The only complaint I do have is that we advised them when we made the reservations, that we needed a high chair for my baby neice. When we got there, all of the high chairs were being used. We ate more than 1/2 our meal before getting a high chair.

Overall an excellent restaurant with fantastic and detailed service. Food selection and food quality was outstanding, a bit pricy but overall highly recommend it if you can afford it. 3 adults for lunch was $172.00 not including tip, with no alcohol, just ice tea. Again food and service was worth paying that much, our server Sean was constantly around and very outgoing & friendly. Suggest each guest gets a separate dish to share among each other to cut down the extreme cost.

This place is so good. The lobster/coconut salad, neo tuna roll, pacific roll were amazing. Great scene and a great waiter.

Excellent Food & Service
My husband loved our dining experience at Sushi Samba...it was one of the best sushi restaurants we've been to. The waitress Gabby made excellent recommendations that we found delicious (ie: Yellowtail and Seabass appetizers). We shall definitely go again when we visit Miami.

Over Priced But Good
A tad bit over priced, but food and service is excellent.
5/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was amazing especially
Everything was amazing especially the wagyu gyozas (one of the best things I have ever tasted) and the sea bass and miso anticuchos. Service was great too. Only complaint was whatever "samba" signature cocktail my wife ordered. It was way to sweet and tasted like melted watermelon/grape jolly ranchers. A lot of people were drinking it though so maybe it tastes good to some people.

Sushi that melts in your mouth
The fish is much fresher than your typical sushi place. Drinks are great too.
We had their seviche (ceviche) and very well made with the right flavors. Highlights to the yellowtail.

Me and my Fiancé "the oyster monster" love coming there and always get treated great by manager Carlos.

Rebecca Does it Again!!!
Rebecca Nailed it Once Again!!! From her genuine smile greeting us, her vibrant personality, and her overflowing knowledge of Samba's food and drink she made our experience wonderful. She has taken care of us several times and although we LOVE the food, she is the reason we keep coming back.
B-Roy, the manager, also makes us always feel welcome and like we are in his home.
For being such a big restaurant, the staff does a really nice job of making everyone's visit feel intimate.
Thank you for asking me to share my experience.

Good to Try
Sushi Samba is definitely an experience. If you have never been to one and enjoy sushi, it's worth a try for the experience.

Fun night in Miami
I had heard of the sushi samba in nyc..haven't been to that one so decided to try the Miami location on my recent trip. Overall, the food was great quality sushi, the service was great and the ambience was fun! The manager hooked us up after finding out that we were celebrating a bday. I will definitely return on my next visit to sobe.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Above and beyond in service
We didn't have a waiter, we had an event coordinator and menu planner! We let our server design our whole dinner. I was overwhelmingly impressed. The meal was an adventure!
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We took a group of five girls here for a bachlorette celebration and it was just fantastic. The food was fresh and our waitress was very entergetic and sweet. The chef even made a special desert for the bachlorette!

First timer...LOVED it!
this was my first time at sushisamba. very inventive menu, not your typical sushi place. food was inventive, beautiful, tasty, plentiful. kind of like sushi tapas, but way more than just raw fish! a very intimate and fun way to eat. some of the house drinks are overly sweet, so be sure to ask your server. I stuck with a Brazilian beer which was outstanding. great, hot pumping music playing in the background, loud enough to engage, but not too loud so to drown out conversation. the ceviche sampler was a huge hit. I can't remember all the names and dishes. we had hot, cold and raw, dozens of different looks and tastes. this is a haven for the adventurous diner. a must if you like to try new things!
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Exceptional as always
Everything was perfect. We love SUSHISAMBA and try to visit everytime we are in South Beach :)
7/27/2013 5:00:00 PM
The evening started badly with them making us wait 45mins for a table we had booked and arrived on time for.
Once seated the manager gave us a few niblets on the house so wasn't a great start.
Our waitress (Nicole) was great and took good care of us. The food was great and we had a great time.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Came here for a bachelorette party. We had the best service - they even gave us a round of
Shots for free. And wow - the food is awesome and fun!!

my favorite sushi
when in Miami I always go to this restaurant for the sushi. just delicious !!
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place and music. Portions were a little bit too small
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic food and service
Rebecca was our waitress, and we essentially let her order for us because we wanted to try all of the dishes that they were known for. She ordered some incredible things and we were very pleased. The seabass skewers are to die for and the taquitos are fantastic as well. If you like cocktails, they have a great cocktail menu as well. The restaurant was fun and lively and great for a date!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Been to this place probably
Been to this place probably 50 times. they have trimmed down the menu and some of our favorites have been eliminated, our waiter was good but a bit disorganized. But definitely would recommend this place without hesitation. Their Samba rolls are probably overall the most enjoyable and fun to share.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Creative Menu with a fine taste!
Happening place with lots of energy! Highly creative menu with an interesting spin using Brazilian,Peruvian and Japanese refine cuisine. Very enjoyable,hghly recommend when in South Beach.

The entire dinning experience from beginning to end was very - very good.!!!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic, as always! The Kamachi with Yuzo and Truffle oil is amazing!!! The martinis are a little small, but tasty. Please get bigger glasses!
9/6/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great dining experience!
Our waitress was great! Very knowledgable on the food and she also suggested that we dine Omakase which really made the experience even better! If you like to try new things then I recommend giving that a try! Every course was a delightful surprise and was perfectly timed! Definitely will be going back the next time I'm in Miami!

The food at Sushi Samba is outstanding and never fails to delight!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were three couples on a Sunday night. We sat outside on a beautiful night and watched the world go by on Lincoln Rd. Rock Shrimp and salad appetizers were enjoyed by all and the sushi was just amazing. I would recommend the Neo Tokyo (Tuna with a dollop of some sort of spicy mayo on top and Salmon served the same way). Some other assortments which were all delicious. Manager came by to make sure all was great and it was. This place always hits it out of the park. We love and we will continue to come back with our friends.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
One if the best sushi restaurants - Everything is incredible !

food gave me sleep coma
The service was great. Waitress recommend some great appetizers. The el topo toll is a must have. Drinks from bar were excellent. Had no complaints other than food was so good it was like taking 4 pills of sleeping medicine.

Samba is one of my favorite venues. The menu is innovative and the food is very fresh. It is a Lincoln Road dining and entertainment gem.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sushi Samba was recommended to us and did not disappoint. Food was delicious and just the right amount. Waitress was helpful in suggesting options.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very tasty food - delicious rock shrimp, my fave. Great cocktails and good service. Major night out spot, the music was quite energetic, but a good late night place to go to. Outside tables are great to watch the Lincoln road crowds and we never felt rushed, would defo go back.
