    We ordered yellowtail taquitos and blue point oysters to start. Both were delicious! Then we ordered the Samba Roll, a Spicy tuna roll, and a shrimp tempura roll. All three if them were exceptional. My husband said the sticy tuna roll was the best he had ever had, ad trust me that is a HUGE compliment coming from him! The atmosphere is very high energy and fun!

    We had a reservation at 8h15, line up for 15 minutes, then a outside table on Lincold Road, not a pleasure. So a fair service and a lot of noise. We waited 1 hour to get our sushis' plate. Sushis were good. I am not sure that we will go bach there.

    a little bit different sushi restaurant. The Wagyu beef was my favorite and we enjoyed the tacquitos. The service was excellent with multiple servers cleaning our table and at all times attending to us. The rock shrimp was not as good as we expected so we probably wouldn't order it again.

    The food is always good. But, this resto does NOT honor Opentable reservations. We were told by the rude hostess,"wait in line w everyone else" So if we need wait in line,whats the point of having a res on Opentable?! Huge turnoff from the beginning but luckily our waitress was amazing and very friendly. Whats w/hostesses anyways? Why they always act high + mighty! Get a grip,ur a hostess!

    If you love a scene, Sushi Samba is probably a must if you're visiting Miami. Unfortunately, I prefer a great meal and the food doesn't deliver at all. As sushi goes, I'd give the place a 4/10 and as value goes, I'd give it a 2/10 (when you order sushi ala carte, you get one piece instead of the standard two everywhere else in the free world). I don't mind spending $150-200 on dinner if it's great but this one was a big disappointment. On a positive note, the restaurant was great about being flexible around reservations. I ended up having to change my reservation the same day by 30 minutes as I was running behind and they were great about letting me push it out.

    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.

    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.

    I believe this restaurant wants to be more than it is. The food is good. Our table ordered a lot of individual items and the presentation was nice. However we probably had five different servers. Many times restaurants/servers know where food goes on the table. I do not recall one dish, from appetizers to entrees coming to the table and our not being asked, "Who gets the _____?" Also, we were a party of seven. Our server immediately asked if he could put together something for us. What he did not tell us was this service was $60pp. We initially said yes and then, before he left the table, discovered this on menu and declined. The portions were limited and overall, based on service, portions and such, overpriced.

    The food was very good and the service from the waitress as well. Don't expect the guys cleaning the table to take any request and don't ask them anything. have no idea what they are bringing to the table or for whom it is.What they should improve is bringing the food for all at the same time. We were 5 and one finished dinner and we haven't even received the drinks. Besides of that very good place for outdoor dining.

    The food, undeniably was excellent, unique and simply contemporary. You don't get to try such elsewhere terribly often. Clearly a good asset for the establishment. The main problem, however, was the attitude of the waitress who waited my table. Would it be approriate for a waitress to just stand there seemingly playing around with whatever device she had, while her customers were ready to place their order? I wasn't expecting her to be staring at my table all the time, but isn't it a server's job to glance at their table(s) every now & then? Two busboys were chit chatting nearby and they happened to notice us. Upon being alerted, she rolled her eyes looking distracted from whatever activity she'd been engaging herself on. Seriously???!!

    Food was likely as good as prior visits, but the service killed the entire experience. From the moment we encountered the hostess and she didn't want to seat us outside as it had rained that morning and none of the tables or chairs were wiped down, so "you'll have to wait, then!" with a look of disapproval. On previous visits the staff was engaging and suggested different items we may not have tried including sake, but this time it was "what would you like?" and had it not been for the opentable reservation, we would likely have left before ordering. The food was good, but could have been much better if the front staff would have smiled.

    Sushi and dumplings were awful. Ceviche was much better but still not excellent. Noise level was fine when we walked in but by the end of our dinner we were screaming at each other. We decided then to go have desert somewhere else. Food came in and we still had no drinks. Will not be recommending this restaurant.

    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!

    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!
