    Sushi Samba could just ride on its prime location on Lincoln Road or trendy interior design. What keeps us coming back is the food--it's consistently good and is varied enough to satisfy traditional eaters as well as foodies. We'll be there the next time we go to South Beach.

    This isn't your little hole in the wall sushi place. Its a large scale chain. Its busy & bustling. It has small stools and tables, and a large open restaurant. Ive frequented the Sushi Samba in Las Vegas many times, and always had a great experience. This one is no different. Good sushi, good drinks, and a great place to have a great time. But just know its not your mom and pop sushi place, so if you are looking for some kind of crazy unique, or cheap cuisine, this isnt it.

    Dined on 7/13/2014
    I have been to other Sushi Samba restaurants, and this one was the worst! We sat outside, which would usually be acceptable, except this time we sucked down the second hand smoke of a chain smoker at the next table over. Our meal took over 2 hours. The rolls were tiny and we had to order more, which meant waiting twice for food. The drinks were over priced and weak. Our bill was wrong. Except for the company of our family, which was delightful, the rest of our experience at Sushi Samba in Miami Beach was awful. We will not return, ever.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 6/20/2014
    I've been to Both the New York and Las Vegas locations of this restaurant and the Miami Beach location just doesn't compare. The food was fine and the service was ok, but the restaurant was really dirty and not well kept. There was duct tape holding my booth together. The plates and bowls had chips and cracks. The tables and floors were dirty and sticky. When I spend $100+ on a meal, I have an expectation that, at the very least, I am going to get a clean glass.

    My Wife And I Went To Miami For Our 4 Year Wedding Anniversary. We Went To Sushi Samba For Our Anniversary Dinner. I Thought It Would Be A Nice Change From The Norm. Our Waitress Was Yvonne And She Was By Far One Of The Best Servers We Have Had. Not Only Was She Knowledgeable About The Menu, But She Was Very Helpful, Friendly, And Kind. Yvonne Definately Made Our Experience Memorable. The Scenery Was Beautiful, Food Eclectic, And The Atmosphere Was Bar None!!!

    We love the restaurant in Vegas and had to try the Miami Beach location. Very lively on Lincoln road. Packed at 7:00 so I recommend a reservation. Had a great waitress. Spicy tequila martinis were the bomb! Similar food to the Vegas location. We had the signature roll El Topo and it was awesome. We love Sushisamba wherever it is!!

    Sushi samba wants to be an upscale place yet they need to train their staff better. Management was no where to be found when the staff dumped the ice water in my friends lap. Nobody came to the table besides the waitress. But the check was handle by manager and no apologies. We have been to sushisamba in New York and the service is as bad as the one on Miami. I think it will be my last visit to this restaurant, I can't take it anymore, my money will be better valued somewhere else where they do care for its diners.

    We made reservation through open table and were quickly seated inside as there was no table available outside. As the music was vey loud, we asked to put it lower what was done. The boss(?) of the restaurant informed us about the fact that as from 9pm there was a DJ and the music was going to be much louder. As this was not really acceptable for us for medical reasons, they managed to put a supplementary table outside in a few minutes to solution our problem. Our fist waiter came 2 times to inform if everything was OK and our new waittress was extremely friendly and efficient although the restaurant was completely fully booked. The food was of a very good quality : excellent sushis and other combinations. Worth a real recommendation !

    This place is awesome! They have it all! The food was mind blowing, the service was 5 star, and the ambience was extremely cool. However, they forgot something extremely important, my wife and my anniversary. I used OpenTable to make the reservation and put in the memo line that it was our anniversary. It was never mentioned once. How disappointing.

    My family and I went to Sushi Samba for dinner, and it was wonderful. We were able to catch a spot outside to sit, the sushi was absolutely delicious, and the service was great. We highly recommend the taquitos to start. They include a fresh blend of fish, guacamole, and vegetables that all blend in perfectly together. The Rainbow Dragon sushi was also to die for, and the Samba Split as dessert was an amazing blend of dulce de leche ice cream, Japanese whipped cream, caramel popcorn, and fresh fruits including bananas. What a great place to eat!

    Food was amazing. every dish was fresh, interesting, and packed with flavor. My only complaint is that the outdoor seating is a little "sceny", full of south beach character. Tables and chairs are all a little wobbly and sticky, but if you can get over the fact that this is how it is everywhere, and focus on the food, it was great.
