    We enjoyed our dinner in every regard. The only (and minor) thing I could complain about was the level of the music. It made it unpleasant to carry on a conversation and I believe there was a problem with the system as the music level kept going up and down,

    Dined on 11/14/2014
    First of all, for an experience like that, the food was not pricey and was incredibly reasonably priced. The service was so wonderful and not sloppy, our waiter was extremely attentive and had a great positive attitude, which as a former server myself, I really appreciated. Even other waiters who weren't assigned to our table would stop by and check on us. The food was delicious and came out in a timely manner. The only thing I didn't enjoy, however, was that we shared seating with other tables on either side of us. I know that's how the restaurant is set up, and that you'll have to be a bit closer to other groups, but I was at dinner for a special anniversary, so it was hard to enjoy my spouse's company on our special night when the table next to us was being unnecessarily loud and making extremely rude comments about the service (they were so wrong and ungrateful). So I suggest this especially if you like to sit at the bar and just hangout, or if you enjoy places with scenery, because the river looks beautiful at night when you're viewing it from their terrace. But I wouldn't suggest going there if you want some privacy unless you go before the dinner rush hits. The only thing that made the experience bad was being closely in between two groups that were both making loud and rude comments to each other and about the restaurant. But this one experience doesn't mean it'll happen to everyone, and not all the seating is so close to other tables. So go check it out! We will definitely be visiting again for such great food, service, and scenery!

    Per usual. No surprises. Had a chance to hop up for a quick lunch rather than the box lunch offered at the Smart Growth Summit on the ground floor. Glad I did! Grand lunch of eggplant miso & seaweed salad overlooking the river. Couldn't have been happier.

    The atmosphere is very electric and romantic at the same time. There is a beautiful view overlooking the Mississippi River. Great place for dates or gathering with friends. Service was excellent and food was delicious. The best calamari I've ever had! Definitely recommend reservations, very busy.

    The one reason to visit Tsunami is the spectacular river view. it can't be beat. That said, the quality of the food is not what it used to be, and the ambience, which used to be incredibly chic, is now looking shabby (lots of holes and tears in the bench seating upholstery). Sushi is good--Lava Rolll is a favorite), but with so many sushi choices now in Baton Rouge, it does not rank at the top for me any longer. Of the 3 entrées we ordered, the Shrimp Ebi and grits was good, the Sea Bass, not so much. Service was friendly but not timely. Save Tsunami when the view with a good cocktail is a must.

    Decided to book this restaurant on the day, was really after a nice view overlooking the mississippi and was not disappointed. We ordered three types of sushi and all tasted amazing, the atmosphere was pleasant to make a beautiful evening. The service was a little slow at first but nothing to have effected our evening, will definitely be coming by again when I'm in the area.

    They NEVER let us down! What a grand spot for a wonderful dinner before a show at the Manship Theater. By all means, enjoy the shrimp & eggplant appetizer. If you enjoy fried soft-shelled crabs, don't miss the Norman Doumit roll. We'll be back again soon & fully anticipating another stellar (pun intended) review.

    It has an amazing atmosphere with the small bar area and the dinning room around the corner. You just feel apart of something special when you're there with the incredible view of the river and the food, drinks and service add to the feel of it all. The only thing I might have a down point on is the hostess. There was a very rude male hostess that was soon forgotten though.
