The sushi appetizers are great, but most of the rolls were underwhelming and very overpriced.

The restroom was disgusting.

Food was good, not outstanding and really overpriced. Grove prices I guess. Staff was great and attentive and inside is beautiful but I don’t think I’d go back. I could get equally good sushi for 1/2 the price many other places.

Won’t go again. Too noisy, too many kids, food so-so. The ladies bathroom is very dark. We’d like a lot more light in there. Definitely not a good place to enjoy dinner before a movie. Was really hoping it would be as good as the Palisades location.

Booked outdoor seating, got confirmed but told that outdoor seats not available when arrived. No apologies, not even the open table points. Only 1hr validation for dinner. Will not visit again

The noise level was nuts at this place. When we were finally seated (we had reservations). We were only given the drink menu. The waitress asked about drinks and we ordered. She quickly walked away. We Waited almost ten minutes before I finally flagging down what seemed to be the manager who apologized and gave us two menus. The waitress came literally seconds after and asked if we were ready to order. My girlfriend told her we had just gotten menus. The waitress apologized and walked away.

Service was awful. The food was mediocre. The place was also super loud. It was not a good experience.

I made a reservation for my son’s 18th birthday and said we had a birthday when open table prompted me to indicate if we had a celebration. No one at the restaurant mentioned it so not sure why I was asked. The service was otherwise excellent and the ambiance was good. But after paying almost $200 for 3 people to have sushi, non alcoholic drinks and zero dessert, a happy Birthday from the host or waiter would be nice. The food was good but not worth the price.

I've visited Blue Rubbon Sushi Bar & Grill at The Grove many times. It is about a 70 mile drive, and I come expressly to visit Blue Ribbon. On my most recent visit the food was excellent as always, and the service was fantastic (as always). The sushi is extremely fresh and expertly prepared. No attention to detail is spared, and presentation is beautiful. The taste is phenomenal and the service staff is friendly, full of personality, and extremely attentive.

My only complaint about my most recent visit, which the restaurant likely has little control over (except that they might lower the volume of the music and/or TVs) is that the ambiance wasn't what it usually is. I normally request to sit in the back / bar area and enjoy the tranquil environment with cool decor while quietly enjoy drinks and my food. On this evening (a Sunday evening) the back bar area was filled with very hyper and noisy children and their parents. The loudness permeated throughout the restaurant and created a loud and hectic environment as everyone was talking over the noise. The music volume may or may not have been louder than usual as well. My wife and I elected not to drink any cocktails and ate less than normal because the ambiance just wasn't what it usually is.

I cannot stress enough that the service and food was perfect and did not disappoint, but the atmosphere was extremely disappointing this time around. I may just limit myself to the Blue Ribbon Sushi inside the Red Rock Casino in Las Vegas. Hopefully it will remain more of a quiet and enjoyable adult environment there with the same quality and service.

The food and service was great! We had a 7:30pm reservation on a Monday and it wasn’t as busy as we expected it to be. The restaurant is right next to the movie theatre which we went afterwards! 🤗

First: I let them know I had a reservation, I had requested not to be seated in between tables. My girlfriend and I had a lot of catching up to do. : ) As I gave my name at the front desk, the young lady said Yes, I have your table ready just as you requested and were immediately seated even though the restaurant was full!!! I'm not easily impressed, but we were impressed. The sushi was fresh and delicious and we are now going to make it our "get go" when we go see a movie, or not. Truly recommend and NO, not getting paid for my review.

The sushi was so small and the quality was not very good. A few months ago, the sushi plate came with nice sized pieces. Things have really gone down hill fast.

Really great food and fun atmosphere at The Grove. Only downside it that we had spotty service (our server would leave us for very long periods of time) and the bathroom was absolutely disgusting.

The food was great, and the restaurant was cute. Only complaint is that the service was lackluster. When ordering an omakase plate, it is traditional for the server to describe what I am eating... This wasn't the case. Went there for a business dinner, so this place was just fine.
