    And totally quiet except for one loud couple at a corner table. You could hear the details of their conversation across the room. The food is good and the menu eclectic. I'm surprised that the restaurant doesn't have more patrons.

    While we are not devotees of the modern decor, we love the eclectic menu, small plate offerings and creative sushi. The food is excellent and the service very professional.

  • A GREAT MEAL RUINED...
    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 5/5/2013
    My first experience at this restaurant was "unique" and not in a good way at all!! The food was delicious, the ambiance was very nice & comfortable; however, our server, Simon, although started out as extremely nice and friendly, made two extremely inappropriate and offensive remarks towards thee end of the meal which made both my date and myself extremely uncomfortable. This was a first date and made us both feel awkward. Not the type of behavior one expects when dining out; very unprofessional and it ruined the evening! WILL NOT BE RETURNING!!!

    The food at Unique was delicious, although a little salty (I had the lobster tacos, beef negamaki & scallops w/ mushroom rissotto). The cocktails were amazing & the service, although a little slow was very good.

    We were seated downstairs, which was quiet but the service was slow as one waitress covered the entire downstairs and had to run up and down. The food, however, was very fresh and very good.

    The sushi was pretty good but the appetizers were overpriced for the quality. A really nice space but I recently had better sushi at Ginza and Blue Fish.

    Swore I would never eat sushi before I found thus place. Decided to celebrate my birthday here - my third visit. Our server, Eddie, was knowledgeable and pleasant. He made our night great from start to finish. Sunday thru Thursday are great nights to enjoy Unique - leave Friday & Saturday for the amateurs.....

    Very eclectic menu. Braised boneless short rib appetizer was great. Sushi was fresh and tasty. Lobster tacos were outstanding. Very noisy on a Saturday night.

    NYCgalVIP
    Dined on 2/14/2013
    I did not like Unique. I had sushi and the rolls seemed to have duck sauce on it, way to sweet and gloppy. I did not finish my sushi, it was that bad. My husband had steak, it came cut in strips with gravy on it. The server, who was quite confused in general, announced they did not have any string beans (at 730 at night). He did like the Kobe meatballs, but when the Kobe steak is listed at $26 you have to wonder just how authentic it is. I think not. We won't be going back.

    There are a scarce few restaurants in Oceanside, but I was glad to see this re-vamped sushi place re-open finally. It's basically the same, with loud music and more choices aisde from sushi - many more, actually. They clearly don't have the formula down yet, as on two visits I got pretty mediocre service. Granted, the second time it was quite busy and all - but this place really is 8 lbs of potatoes in a 10 lb sack - it doesn't live up to the 'trendiness' they are trying to play there.

  • A great combination of Japanese
    MarlarVIP
    Dined on 1/25/2013
    A great combination of Japanese with a French flair. This new place will give the other Japanese restaurants in the area a run for the money. Suishi was light, fresh and very tasty. Wait staff was equally as good. We will definitely be back. The only complaint has nothing to do with the food. The valet service was not good. It was snowing when we left and instead of bringing the car to us they drove it out to the street and left it there. I was on crutches and told them I couldn't walk in the snow down the driveway and over to the car (I know they were busy but even if I wasn't on crutches they should have brought the car to us). With help I got in the car but then we couldn't find where they left the keys. They were very flustered.

    This is a great restaurant. Went there with 8 other people so we tried almost everything on the menu each item was better than the previous. If you are looking for a eclectic asian menu this is your place. I will go back time and again.
