Diner Reviews
  • "The food was outstanding. Service was just as fantastic! Very attentive but not overly!! We saw the manager on the way out and he checked in with us. Very polite. I brag on this restaurant all the time and it never disappoints!"

  • "If you get there enough to see the sunset, you're in for a treat. It's absolutely gorgeous. Try to take your eyes off the tasty rolls, gyoza-pan fried dumplings (my mouth is watering), mochi, etc. just for a moment, look out the window and for a moment feel that all is right with the world."

  • "Upscale atmosphere with views of the Mississippi River and Old State Capitol. Besides sushi, the Chilean Sea bass was exceptional and enough to split."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Great food even if you don't care for sushi. Our waiter was helpful in helping us select food that we enjoyed. The portions are large. I would order fewer items next time. All in all we had a delightful evening and will return. The view is spectacular seeing the Mississippi River roll by."

  • "Tsunami is far and away has the best dining ambiance in Baton Rouge. The panoramic view of the river and the patio are inspirational. It is certainly an extraordinary environment for a romantic dinner. There are better sushi restaurants in town but they do not compare with Tsunami due to it's visual impact; however, the food was particularly good this time. Much better than it has been in the past."

  • "The staff at Tsunami was awesome. I requested an outside table, got one. The chef sent out an appetizer for my son's birthday. The view was amazing, as was the food. The waitress was very attentive. At the end of the meal, they sent out a dessert for my son's birthday. I was amazed. I'll be back and will highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "I love everything about this place! The Bartenders are the best, I can sit at the bar all night and feel like I'm home. The Salmon on top of the Greens made my weekend!"

  • "We eat at Tsunami's as often as we can. For special occasions, or when out of town guests come to visit, we always include Tsunami's in our plans. "
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The quality of the food is low. The prices are high. Most of the sushi is cooked, comes with cream cheese, and is covered in heavy sauces. The fried calamari appetizer tasted like old oil. Miso soup was extremely salty. The hot tea is promoted as exotic gourmet tea and costs $4-$6, but it is Mighty Leaf. The place was so noisy and the other customers were so uncouth that we could barely converse at our table. In the end we spent quite a lot of money to be unsatisfied and put out by the dive bar environment and unaccountably snobby staff. Never going back. Will recommend that others do not try it. "

  • "By far the best/nicest restaurant I've ever been too, looking forward to coming back."

  • "This is our favorite place for good, atmosphere and view in Baton Rouge. Maybe best view on the river period. But the food and service are exceptional as well. A must try restaurant. "

  • "Seated right away at reserved time (Wednesday 7 pm). Ethan, our waiter, was prompt, attentive, and knowledgeable. The crunchy roll appetizer was delicious. I had the short ribs, my wife the salmon. All good. Sunset over the river was beautiful. With the right weather and timing an outside table would be the thing to do. One out-of-character oddity....the seat on one side of many of the tables is a very long, upholstered bench. At more than one location there were rips in the fabric; at our table the rip was about 5 to 6 inches long. We mentioned this to our waiter and to the hostess; the answer was that "LSU" (LSU has the lease?) would not let them fix it. Strange. "
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "The Sushi, excellent service, and the view from the roof top patio can't be beat! The setting was quiet for an intimate dinner... you could talk without shouting. Highly recommended. "
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "So, I have always heard great reviews of this restaruant so I wanted to be really romantic with my girlfriend and treat her to a dinner here the night before Easter. I made reservations the night before for 7:30 pm. So we got our table quick from reservations and then the he was sorry and gave us 2 drinks on the house. We then ordered the food like 10 minutes later and ended up waiting 50 minutes for our food to be prepared. It was extremely long and my girlfriend noticed about 5 groups of people that got there food before us that came after us. I had to wave our waitress down and she did not even apologize for the long wait. It turned my romantic night into having a agitated girlfriend and ruined my dinner romantic plans. "
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Last several visits the service has been off and I think the quality of the food is not as good as it used to be but the prices have gone up. Still an excellent view and atmosphere."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "The manager is to be commended. He/she hires and trains excellent wait staff and the food is consistently good. I've never been disappointed. And the view...wow!"
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "The staff is great, very accommodating, We brought a birthday cake. Food was delicious really fresh and well prepared. Two in our party had something other than sushi and it was very good. Very nice bar ( not large) but great drinks and great service without pressure. I would definitely return."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "Great food, great service, with amazing views. Only complaint is the noise level. When I arrived they informed me my table wasn't ready yet but would be ready in about 15 minutes. Although that rather annoyed me since I had reservations, I went to the bar to order drinks for the wait. Wasn't 45 seconds before I received a text message informing me that my table was ready. Our waitress was attentive without being a bother and very knowledgeable. I highly enjoyed this restaurant for date night. It was kind of loud, and at times I felt I needed to holler to my date, but the noise level is worth the experience!"

  • "I did not fulfill my reservation's obligation due to being involved in a traffic accident. I will make reservations next opportunity."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "I ordered the Kabuki Roll, Caterpillar Roll, and Dragon Roll. My brother had the Michael Doumit Roll, Sahbum Roll, and Spicy Roll. The sushi was okay but it did not taste fresh, which was disappointing. For dessert, my bro ordered the Vietnamese Coffee Ice Cream, which was too ice-y and watered down. I tried to order the Pancific Bread Pudding but couldn't so I ordered the Tsinful Chocolate Tsunami. Unfortunately I am lactose-intolerant so I asked our server Shelby if I could substitute the ice cream portion for something else. She very graciously suggested the Honeydew Pineapple sorbet and even had it served separately, so that it wouldn't clash in flavors. The lava cake was good. The sorbet was good, but had a weird texture."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "They were packed-- had to wait about 10 minutes on the 6:30 reservation. Service and Food were very good. However, the dining experience felt rushed. Food came out too fast, and we missed the leisurely pace of prior visits. We were out of there before 7:30, which seemed to be their goal.... In and out in an hour. I recommend trying Tsunami on a non-weekend night so you can enjoy your time there."

  • "Great location atop the Shaw Center in Downtown Baton Rouge. Restaurant has a beautiful rooftop terrace available for dining for for sitting and soaking in great views of the river and downtown Baton Rouge. Food is excellent with a huge selection of sushi appropriate for every taste. Service was friendly and capable. My only wish would be for a more expanded wine list. Highly Recommend."

  • "Tsunami is a wonderful place to have great Sushi and their Sake menu is really good. We always like to sit in Ethan's area. He's a great server who stays on top of your order and is always available to assist you with the menu. Love going there."
