    Everything was fresh and delicious. Seasoned just enough to accent the natural flavor of the fish without overpowering it. The toro was incredible. It was ocean butter. Rich and smooth and just melted.

    It was a bit tricky to find since we were coming from north. however, easy to loop around and saw it before we had to make the U-turn. ambiance was very understated, classy, sophisticated. staff was very cordial and professional. the food was A-MA-ZING! the sushi rolls were different and unique- no California roll or salmon bagel roll here! our favorites were the fish collar appetizer- simply melt in your mouth delicious and just the right amount of salty. I did the trio of tuna- such a great idea! but, toro will always be my favorite, though the medium tuna was a close 2nd. The spicy scallop and lobster roll are a MUST HAVE! simply delicious!

    Tomo is superb. All ingredients are of the highest quality, some flown from Tokyo, and prepared by sushi masters without peer. There are gluten free options listed on the menu as well as on the manager's tablet. Order from the daily list of special fish and supplement with items from the menu. The fatty tuna and snapper special fish were outstanding and my large crab roll was delicious as was the shrimp tempura.

Their exquisite appetizer creations are always consistent. My personal server Ferry provides top notch service and is one of the reasons to come back to this restaurant time and again.

    My wife and I had dinner at your restaurant last night…… Let me preface this by saying we only eat the finest food in Atlanta and we dined with you on a whim. The service was excellent…from the time we walked in to the time the valet delivered our car. I wish I had names that I could mention, but I do not. We will be back. You have somehow managed to create a restaurant with 5 star feel and reasonable prices. A nice value for tasty Sushi Perhaps we should move into the Ritz and be able to walk next door.

    I've eaten some of the top sushi restaurants in North America. Tomo is clearly in that class. Better than Nobu. Very impressive. May I suggest that you let the chef decide. It's not on the menu but if you ask they will accommodate =they will bring you the top offering one by one. Incredible.

    This is my go to place for sushi. The manager and staff are second to none. As many places as I have gone in Atlanta, I have yet to find a better place for sushi. They offer high-end conventional sushi, but with a uniquely urban twist. And from sake, to wine, to mixed drinks .. their selection leaves nothing to be desired.

    Tomo is our favorite Sushi restaurant in Buckhead. The fish is always excellent, they offer seasonal fish so the variety is good, and the cooked items are great too. Kampachi Serrano, Tempura and Black Cod Boston appetizers are excellent. Wine, sake and beer list is more extensive than most Japanese restaurants in town. The service is very good and the décor is upscale modern but not overdone.

    I had specifically remarked on the Open Table reservation that it was our anniversary. First they tried to squeeze us in the smallest two person table I'd ever seen. And they actually tried to get 2 other couples onto it while we there. They all declined it, so it wasn't just us. Secondly, they clearly our waitress was pushing for us to order the most expensive things on the menu. From beer, to wine, to sushi.. Lastly they rushed us through the entire dinner. This place is definitely a place where they try to turn tables fast. The food was really very good, expensive which we expected, but their service let them down. Especially when we were trying to celebrate an occasion. We won't be going back and we are weekly sushi people. Sad.

    My three friends were already there by 7:15, but I was behind due to traffic. Came in & sat down around 7:25 pm. Nobody came over to us to ask about drinks, etc., until about 7:45 pm. When she did come, she walked away after we ordered our drinks while I was in the middle of ordering an appetizer. She wasn't concerned with listening to any of us, checking on us, or making suggestions to us. She would disappear for 10-15 min at a time. Mind you - not one of us had our phone out on the table, so that can't be an excuse for her. It took 2 hours to order food/eat & after asking for a fork multiple times, we all gave up. It was the worst sushi (service) experience I've had in B'Head. Food was great. When she reappeared for us to order.

    The fish selection is superb for the east coast, and the preparation was creative, varied and delicately delicious. We ordered and shared six or seven hors' doeuvre portions and that was plenty to eat, although the portions are generally small, a bite or two each. May was our server, and all I can say is we really lucked out...she is lovely, gracious and so knowledgeable and helpful...five star service! We will return, having only scratched the surface of what Tomo has to offer.

    there is a lot of hype about Tomo which is why i had a business dinner there. needed to impress someone. we had some appetizers which were fair...the squid was very good, the crab roll was mediocre in a fairly tasteless sauce. our sashimi (for which i had very hgh hopes) was average. i was expecting fish quality to be off the charts, but i have had better elsewhere in Atlanta...so, while very hip and pricey, overrated!

    Trying to find a great Japanese restaurant in Atlanta. Started with Tomo since it had good write-up in local newspaper by reputable critic. It has all the trappings of great restaurant but if one knows sparkling, true fresh fish, it is obvious this fish is fresh but not sparkling. I'm used to sushi, sashimi in stellar Japanese restaurants in San Francisco and this is close, but not there. It was obvious to us that most of other guests were NOT there for Japanese food but because it is in Buckhead, in Ritz Carlton Residence high rise, etc. We found it very expensive for what it was. Returning to SF for true sushi grade fish.
