We had a group of seven, four different checks, an hour before a concert. We received food and drinks promptly and our bills were all divided. There was a thunderstorm right as we were leaving the restaurant and all of the customers were given garbage trash bags to use as ponchos when walking to Pinnacle-customers were very appreciative.

We always go here before concerts because I love their sushi! However, the service is always terrible! This last Friday was the last time, we will find some place else!

It took 15 minutes to be greeted by our server and 25 to get a glass of water & 30 for a drink. Our server Dan once he got to us was wonderful, prior to that service was lacking. The food was wonderful and the patio is nice.

Miso soup and seaweed salad were very good. Shrimp tempura was overwhelmed by the batter and mealy - basically, tasteless. Sashimi not made with the best quality fish. Our server was very pleasant and efficient. Overall, a disappointing experience.

We were seated by the door on a cold night even though there were plenty of open tables. The sushi rolls as appetizers were good but my entree was another story. Vegetables with tofu turned out to be a lot of mushy tofu and a few vegetables. The service was luke warm at best and the overall atmosphere is not very conducive for a date night. Previous trips to this restaurant were usually good but this experience will probably be our last.

I love the food here! It never disappoints and service was excellent! I never felt like we were being pushed to leave despite the obvious wait for tables. They were great to ask if we were done with items before removing them from our table as well. I'll be back!

last time i went, my food was fine. not so this time. i had the mongolian chicken and my wife had fried rice with chicken. last time at lunch my food was perfect. this time at supper, the rice sticks on bottom were burnt and not hardly any there. Chicken was skimpy in mine and much skin left on it. Yuck! I have to be gluten-free and one of the reasons i come there. White sticky rice was good but way too many onions. Like i said, chicken very skimpy. My wive's dish was fine, looked great, not so much mine. Didn't want to make scene and complain when we hadn't been on a date for awhile. Worth the price of the meal? Sorry...

This is a great place to grab a quick bite before an event at the arena. Appetizers and sushi rolls are excellent. Entrées are hit and miss. No ambience to speak of, and quite noisy when busy. Nice selection of beverages.

Hiro 88 delivered a superb experience on my first visit. I started by ordering a Vesper martini. Clean, crisp, and cold as they should be. Thankfully they did not appear to use dry vermouth, which for me is a big plus. I now compare all other Vespers to theirs. For food I ordered miso soup and a 14 piece sashimi plate. Both the soup and sashimi were top notch. In fact the sashimi was so good that I had to order another small plate. I will definitely be visiting Hiro 88 again.

Had a great dinner with family from Florida! Made reservations for 14 for 7:00, got done with Husker game early, and got to Hiro at 6:30. They accommodated us in 10 minutes, we were seated by 6:45! Service was awesome! Had the best waiter! He was always checking drinks, food, ......great experience!

I tried Hiro88 for the first time. Being raised in Japan, I was skeptical about their Japanese dishes especially I had two Japanese business clients with me. We were pleasantly surprised that my clients enjoyed the dishes. They ordered sushi combo and Eel don and they thought the dishes were good. I ordered sea bass (grilled ) to be on the 'safe side' since I have not eaten here before. I will definitely go back now that I know the food and services are good.

Was informed we would only have 90 minutes to dine as there was a concert that night. We were seated at 4:56. At 6:08 the hostess informed us that there was a reservation for our table at 6pm and we would need to finish our drinks outside. Other tables that were seated prior to us were still dining when we were asked to leave. Not impressed and will not return.

A real gem in Lincoln. Fantastic appetizers and happy hour specials. Large selection of roll choices. We shared appetizers and split a main course. We enjoyed the campus-like energy of the atmosphere. The rolls were fresh and full of flavor. The wontons were crunchy and full of cream cheese and other flavors. Try it!

Had to go to the bar and order my second cocktail because waitress just wasn’t back to check on us. Also the waitress picked up my salad without asking if I was finished. I wasn’t found that irritating as I was planning to finish it with my main course. General impression was that service was friendly but not very attentive, as in go through the motions and get it done. This was not my first visit but not my most enjoyable either. Do love the food. I think they might have been under staffed that night. I’d rather think that than just admit the service was sub par.
