    A lot of their menu is deep fried so if you are looking for a healthy dinner. Probably not the best call. We had ordered a roll which was under the roll section. And it came with raw fish on crispy rice. We called the waitress over to let her know we had missunderstood what we ordered as we thougt we were ordering a roll and didn't want more deep fried items. She happily took the plate away and brought us back something we wanted. Very loud very fun and a live dj.

    We had a marvelous experience at Sushisamba. The food and drink were wonderful, and our waiter, Charles, was extremely helpful. The only negative (a very minor one by the way) was that it did get very noisy when the room filled up with more and more people.

    My husband and I went to sushi samba for his birthday. The waitress was amazing, she recommend great food. For appetizers we got beef and lobster taquitos they were amazing especially the beef, it was juicy and temder and, it was very tasty. We also got el topo sushi which was also great only wished it had more than six pieces. For entry my husband and I shared churrasco, another great plate and for dessert we got smores delicious. Overall I had a great experience and I would definitely come back.

    SUSHISAMBA provided us with a really nice dining experience. The scene and ambiance are beautiful and lively. Really vibrant and festive. Music was a touch loud, but not that big a deal. Our service was solid and the food was delicious. Great flavor combinations and presentation on all the courses we ordered. It certainly lived up to our expectations. Would recommend to a friend and look forward to returning.

    The menu is great with many options and each dish has a great presentation. The mushroom appetizer is to die for - it came very hot and the aroma was wonderful.. All the appetizers are great. Sushi is delicious and served all on one platter, instead of many separate plates. We loved the lobster on top of one sushi roll.

    We had to wait about 20 minutes even with a reservation, so that was kind of annoying. I think they might have given our table away. However, they made up for it by giving us free drinks and free appetizers and our waitress was very helpful and patient with our large group.

    I've been dinning at Sushi Samba for years, usually at the park avenue location. Since that had closed down I decided to give the west village a try. Love the music and the atmosphere, but it is a bit loud. Better for a girls night out than a romantic dinner. The menu has been updated, which is nice however I stuck to my favorite samba rolls and antichuvos. Overall great food, the menu had a lot going on which could be a positive or a negative. I finally tried the samba juice, which was amazing, will certainly drink that against during my next visit.

    The sushi is delicious with a twist from your typical sushi. Delicious, and the Nashi cocktail was by far THE BEST cocktail I've ever had! Service was excellent. We sat upstairs and were glad we did as it was VERY busy and crowded downstairs, especially at the bar, when we left.

    The downstairs portion of the restaurant is very typical. There are some big "community" tables where you can sit with random people. The second floor is awesome. Quiet small tables and a patio that overlooks the busy street. Highly recommended for date nights and small groups od friends.

    I don't have any additional comments. The options you provided above suits my opinion very well, but since you insist. No place is perfect. It is a bit pricy. Red at the bar is over the top and alarming. A wider selection of vodka (Tito Vodka specifically) would go along way. I understand the significance of the red but I'm just say-in. I thought the having one TV with Asian cinema and the other Latin is awsome. The music was nice. The seats were confortable. The wait staff didn't quit have it all together. They brought me someone else's order. I got the special, it was tasty but way more than mouthful, than i could appreciate. I was able to get parking in front when i drove up. This is always a luxury plus in New York City.

    My wife and I ate here before going to a concert at MSG. Very nice ambiance! Our server was great, she made excellent suggestions for both food and drinks. Our sushi was delicious, fish was fresh! We didn't have to wait long for any of our courses or drinks. From the moment we walked in the staff was attentive to all our needs. Sushisamba is conveniently located a short walk from the 1 train at Chambers St. station. I highly recommend this place!!

The food is amazing, the cocktails are great, and we love the ambience a lot. We usually like to bring our visiting guests here, and they are always pleasantly surprised by the food and the overall atmosphere. Great place!

    I have been to SushiSamba many times and honestly they have never disappointed. The food is always phenomenal and the staff is friendly and obliging. This last visit my boyfriend lost his wallet at some point while we were waiting for our table, and both our waitress and the manager were very helpful to us. They even gave us a free appetizer. As we were leaving the restaurant we found out from the hostesses that they had found his wallet! All in all a fantastic experience. I highly recommend this place for anything from a girl's night, to a family dinner, to a romantic evening out, to a birthday dinner with a large group of friends.

    Discovered Sushisamba in London, at the top of the Heron tower... amazing view and food. Tried it out in NYC and wasn't disappointed. The food is excellent. Basically it's a mix between Japanese and Brazilian food. The suhis are amazing, the beef is to die for. They also have very nice cocktails. I can only recommend to go. It's neither cheap nor expensive... for the quality, I was happy to pay!
