    They sat me at the counter by the cooks despite my reserving a standard table. For fifteen minutes no one approached me, not even a glass of water. So, I left without ordering or dining. I’ll wait five or even ten minutes but 15 is too much.

    Great lunch menu. I like that I was able to choose 3 items from a large variety and then choose between Miso soup or ice cream for a set price of $18.99. Will definitely go back to try three different menu items.

    There is a living black worm(about 1cm) inside the oyster and jump out of it when I was about to eat. It swam and twisted around for about 30 seconds then die. I still cannot quite describe my feeling at that time. The manager told us this was a common occurrence and gave us a bottle of sake saying it would kill the bugs. I don't know, at least it did prove that the oyster was fresh.

    Ebisu rarely disappoints and it's a given that if they are busy, the service might not be at 100%. Overall my group loved it and it was a good time with good food and good company. The salmon carpaccio and spicy tuna bites were amazing ☺️. Only critique is... By the time my clam miso soup arrived, I had started on the other dishes - so it was slightly overshadowed by the other dishes. I wouldn't have minded the wait for the clam miso soup and the rest come after - that might be a question that can be asked to the guest. But 4-5 stars all around ☺️ stay amazing yall!

    Way too many tables for the space and it feels super crowded and EXTREMELY loud. May be more appropriate for group events than for individual dining/dates. The food is good, but the ambiance is that of a train station on a New Years Eve. We couldn’t wait to finish eating and leave.

    Concierge recommended. Great location above Robson and Bute. Pan fried dumplings were delish. Nice hamachi, crisp, cool garden salad popped between tempura and spicy tuna roll. Hot sake served in a pot of boiling (literally) water. Kept it nice and hot, as we like it. For sushi lovers. This is it. But also has a nice looking bent box. Yum
