Our server was attentive and friendly. Food was incredible!
We were in town for a theatre conference and wanted sushi near the convention center. It was nice to be able to make reservations ahead of time. The sushi lunch deal was great!
The food is fantastic. The service is basically non existent. I think this should be a successful restaurant, but the service will kill it.
The food was delicious, but the service was horrid. We waited 10 minutes in the front before anyone even came out to talk to us about being seated. Then once we were seated, it was another full 15 minutes before we were asked to order drinks. There were no waiters or bartenders to be found in the entire place.
My wife and I actually got a night out for Valentine’s Day and this place was perfect. Highly recommend for food and date night.
Absolutely amazing, food was impeccable and service was thoughtful and alert. Definitely recommend this place, I’ll be back soon that’s for sure.
Miso soup and salad was excellent. The Rainbow roll and Sunset rolls are very good but smaller then most Sushi Restaurants in Louisville. Definitely under staffed for Valentine’s Day.Overall experience was good.
They were out of several items that we wanted and most of the rolls had either cream cheese, tempura, heavy mayo, or were fried. Waitstaff were friendly and attentive, but probably won’t dine here again. Not the type of sushi that we like.
Awesome sushi and great service. Would definitely go back.
The sushi was Phenomenal. The drinks were good.
We went on a Saturday night and it was not very busy. They were a little short staffed, but managed to provide decent service.
My husband’s birthday dinner. The wait staff was friendly and very good. The food was very good as well. We generally go to Westport Rd location but they were full so we were able to get in at the downtown location. Wonderful experience and we could hear each other easily as this location is not as big busy as the original one. We will definitely head back downtown regularly!
Delicious food and great service! Hiko-a-mon is always a good choice.
It’s just ok.
Pretty decent for the price we paid.
Won’t be returning. Service was terrible. We waited almost 45 minutes for our food to come out and when it did it was extremely over cooked and dry. This restaurant is way overpriced and not worth the visit.
Friendly service and delicious sushi. Made in Japan and Red Samurai rolls recommended! Will be back again!
We sat in the sunken private dining area, which was nice but needed some maintenance.
Made a reservation but the restaurant was virtually empty. Took 10 minutes for someone to greet us at the table and the waits were awful. Ordered a soup for an appetizer and it was brought out immediately, but our sushi rolls took 45 minutes to come out after. Very slow.
Sliced tongue was good, wasabi roll was good and the chicken hibachi was good too.
Best Sushi I have had! Got the tornado roll and the Las Vegas roll! Will return here next time I am in Louisville!!
We arrived to the restaurant at 7:30 and didn’t receive our meals until 8:45. What we ate was good, but the wait was pretty extreme. We sat in a separate room at a cool table that was low to the floor, but it had a broken water feature in it and everyone in our party thought it was really hot in there. Overall, I felt like we paid a lot for a not so great evening.
Food was excellent and service very good. The quiet atmosphere suited our family gathering of 7. The only disappointing aspect was the limitations of cocktails available. However it would not stop me from coming back...next time I’ll get sake.
Service was awesome and sushi was amazing. Plus, our server even read my note in my reservation to my wife. 😁
Best sushi in Louisville! I’ve been trying every Japanese restaurant in town for years trying to find one I love and finally did with this place.
It was a girls night out and we wanted to try something new. I will be going back again soon. It's a small place but the food was EXCELLENT!!!! I highly recommend trying it!!
I could have got better sushi at the grocery store. It was below average, restaurant smelled like mildew, and service was slow. Would not return.
Business lunch - food and service were both great.
Amazing food in a cozy, modern setting. Doesn’t look like much from outside but we were pleasantly surprised. Some of the best sushi I’ve had in the Midwest.
It was great! Good food, good service! I recommend it.
Server lady was very attentive and nice. Food quality was decent for Louisville. Bit pricey, but amount of food you will get is worth it.
Loved our meals and apps. Great Yaki Soba and Ramen, very friendly staff. We will be back!
When one thinks of Louisville, KY, sushi is not usually the first food that comes to mind, or not even the second or third. So the it is perhaps time to think again. Louisville is the home of UPS air so if finding fresh fish is not only easy, but plentiful. At this small downtown establishment you will find a good selection of whatever has been flown in that day, artfully prepared and tastefully delivered. And you know it's fresh, because when it's gone, it's gone. Give it a try.
Come here every time I am in Louisville for work, usually bring customers or coworkers and have consistently good service and delicious sushi- recommend Made in Japan roll. It’s a small restaurant but my server is always attentive and courteous. Not sure why other reviewers have provided negativity as I’ve always had positive experiences at Hiko-A Mon. I’ll be back for sure!
There was absolutely no one in the restaurant and we waiting an hour and 20 min to get our food (half of which was then wrong). Very disappointing.
If I could give a negative I would. There was only 1 server for the entire restaurant. The food was flavorless, and loaded with butter, which made me ill before we even left the building.
The food was fantastic. Not much as far as ambiance, but it is very authentic. We started with the Red Snapper Carpaccio which was sliced very thin and in a wonderful citrus vinegar base. We also had the tempura shrimp and vegetables. A little heavy on the tempura, but served with a nice dipping accent. My two other colleagues and I split the Futomaki Roll, Fire Dragon Roll and had Dinner B as well as Sushi Deluxe. We were hungry. Food was fresh and very tasty. Our waitress did a great job attending to our table.
Service was extremely poor. The restaurant was only half full and they had no menus to give us because they were all in use. Waited 20 minutes for menus and waters. Then ordered drinks and didn’t get them until 45 minutes later. There were only two servers who were also the bartenders. The Westport village location is way better.
Staff was over whelmed and unwelcoming. Hostess greeted us about 15 minutes after arriving, and then said give me a minute and returned about five minutes later. She then informed me that they didn’t know about my reservation on Opentable, and said it would be 50 more minutes before my table was ready, even though I had received a confirmation email over an hour prior.
Solid sushi in Downtown Louisville. Pretty reasonably priced too.
After 30minutes waiting the waitress came and told us we need to wait another 20-30minutes for our sushi; So we just left.
