    We went to Tsukuro for a birthday celebration and ordered many different things. The best thing we had was edamame. The Brussels sprouts were pretty good, too, but the sushi was not outstanding, pad thai just average, oxtail spring rolls were awful. Drinks were a little overpriced.

    My husband and I went there for lunch yesterday after hearing some good reviews from my friend. We also crave for sushi and raw bar. They have good selections of oyster and sushi. Not sure the other Asian dishes were a good mix for the menu but then we thought maybe the restaurant targets out of towners and not so much locals. The service was slow consider it was Tuesday and not a busy day at all. It took 30 minutes to get our first dish and 45 minutes to get the Ceviche. But over all the food is good and the place is very nice. The raw Bar is excellent displayed with good variety

    I read the reviews before we went and it appeared it could be hit or miss. Overall, the food and service was good. It is a bit noisy as you get music from the surrounding restaurants that bothered one of our guests. There are a lot of options and the sushi was very good. I would go back

    The service was great, they had great attitude. The food was excellent. The only bad thing is that they are too close to a spanish restaurant that played their music so freaking loud. It was hard to enjoy the experience with that next door. Ask for Maria, she was awesome.

    The restaurant was empty yet we had to flag down a server to take our order. Service was very slow. Food was average. I've never been to an Asian inspired restaurant where there is a $5 charge for rice. The 18% gratuity is added to bill - but was never mentioned when the check was delivered. When there is an added gratuity, the servers don't have any incentive to give good service.

    The service was not very good. Everything came out at roundon times, 2 of our dishes didn't come at all until we asked about them, one of the items wasn't on the ticket at all. The server wasn't very friendly until the end when he brought the ticket and explained that he only got a small cut of the included 18% gratuity and that we could leave more for him if we wanted. Nice looking place right on the beach, we will probably not be returning. Unfortunately :(

    We live nearby and normally wouldn't set foot in one of the Las Olas Beach restaurants. Tsukuro wins!! A great table just inside from the street, wonderful small plates, a more than acceptable wine list and we were set. The fried oysters in lettuce wrap are outstanding. The satay combination is also really good. We'll probably become regulars.

    Took a friend there for his birthday. We were immediately taken to our seat inside of the restaurant near the bar. The decor is trendy and looks even better at night when you can't really see the ocean. The food was good overall. Some interesting flavors like the baked oysters. We ordered uni sushi with quail eggs and it just seemed like the sushi chef cracked the entire egg over the uni. Other places just place the yolk on top and skim out the clear liquid. Our server was great, but check your bill! There is an automatic 15% gratuity added. She definitely deserved more than that, however, I feel a restaurant should always verbally tell the guests about the auto gratuity. They should not just rely on a tiny line written in the menu.

    If you are looking for some great seafood and sushi then this is a must try. They prepare some of their dishes differently (i.e. crispy sea bass) so definitely ask about the preparation before you order. Beautiful sushi and raw bar with oysters, crab legs, whole red snapper, etc.... Lots of small plate selections for sharing so you can try a variety of menu items. Roasted Brussels Sprouts were exceptional.. Service was excellent and views spectacular with indoor/outdoor seating. Restaurant is only a few weeks old but it should be around for a long time.

    Loved the contemporary decor and lively atmosphere without being too loud. We sat inside but enjoyed the water view! Waiter was great and didn't rush us. We tried the square sushi and the California roll. Both excellent and fresh! Very interesting menu with a lot of choices. We were looking for sushi and very happy! Definitely a place on the beach to try.

    We were in town for a youth sports competition and wanted to have a team dinner. Several high school age athletes were interested in having Asian cuisine. This restaurant was excellent on many levels. The atmosphere was really nice. The service was efficient. Most importantly the food was excellent. We will be back.

    It's new so needs a shake down. Food seems to be down (sushi was particularly awesome) but not much else. Our server was nice but very inexperienced and it showed. It's spot right next to Rock Bar makes it really loud the Saturday night we were there. Overall I just think it needs some time as it just opened.

    We had a group that ate at this new restaurant , and we gave it a fair score. The service will be great once they get things figured out. This place has only been open a couple of weeks. Our waiter had a rough time getting things straight, but with help of the manager they were great. The food was good, the price are great and it is right on the beach. I would recommend this place to anyone who likes sushi, but that is the main thing on the menu. Overall I would say give it a try.

    It was my first time to dine at Tsukuro and I'm glad I did! The food was excellent! Service was a bit slow but probably because it was a day after Valentine's Day. The food presentation was beautiful and portions are just right. I'm also glad that they have valet parking although it still costs $10 even after validation.

    We were excited to try this restaurant as the menu looked great, as well as the ambience looked like it might be something up our alley. The restaurant was extremely noisy so if you are looking for a quiet place to take a date, this is not it! Our food was great, however the service wasn't up to snuff. We had many dishes brought to our table that were not our own, and had to continuously ask for one of our dishes that finally showed up well after we had finished the rest of our meal. We would not go back to this restaurant next time we visit Fort Lauderdale.
