It was awesome. The service was stellar and so far the best we have had at Baha mar. Our glasses never had a chance to run empty and our throw away dish for the edamame was discarded twice without asking. I didn’t have to ask for one thing, they knew exactly what me and my wife needed and when we needed it. Food was good, a bit overpriced for the portion you get but that’s to be expected. I’m all about service, and this place definitely treats you the right way.

Everything was delicious and our server was friendly and prompt. However, everything comes out at different times “because it’s in different kitchens” so the first member of our party was done eating 20 minutes before the last one got their food. If you plan to share a variety of plates or don’t mind the timing, we enjoyed it.

A glass wa dropped, people came to pick it up with their hands, noone swept the area, could see glass. Service was so slow. Asked for utensils, people eating with hands or waiting to have their soup. We did not have the correct dishes, took them from other tables. Service is just sad in this hotel.

Food was fabulous! The Robata portions were large which was fine because, they were delicious. The broccolini and asparagus were my favorite. Lots of char and flavor both served with a Japanese mayo. I had the braised short ribs; tender and delicious with fried leeks on top. It was loud in the restaurant that night only because there was a group of girls having a pre bachelorette party dinner...they were just having fun but, simply could not stop laughing and talking at high volume. They were asked to keep it down actually.

Not even the Nobu restaurants in London or Manhattan have the exorbitant prices of this restaurant. To pay $17.80 dollars for an Asahi beer ($14.00 plus 15% service charge plus 12% VAT) 330 ml us utterly ridiculous.

Outside was full so we were inside which was nothing special. Service was great. Rolls were great... but the price for value isn’t. This was most expensive meal to get full. We were pumped for the $40 lobster roll.. and it was our least favourite roll. I am not sure if we would go back.. but if you have $200 to eat a dinner, it’s worth the try.

Dined there and order came out incorrectly. When pointed out it was another 15 mins before the waiter ever came back without the order. Food was good but not at those prices. Made to feel like a second tier guest.

No manager ever came by to ask if they could be of service. The label on the restaurant of designer and chef not lived up to at all.

Avevo prenotato in questo ristorante in quanto amante del cibo giapponese. Mi trovavo alle bahamas per il mio compleanno e volevo festeggiare in questo ristorante che si trovava in un hotel molto carino. Il baha mar, noi soggiornavamo all atlantis.
Bene, cucina davvero ottima, ma il servizio, davvero davvero pessimo. Nemmeno un sorriso ne all accoglienza e ne al saluto finale( che non c’è stato) Ci hanno presentato il conto e una volta pagato si sono dileguati.
Avevo chiesto una torta al momento della prenotazione e ho dovuto chiederla in presenza dei miei amici perché non l avevano contemplata, ovviamente non l avevano ma hanno pensato bene di inserire una candelina in un dolcino singolo.
Ripeto la cucina molto buona, anche se devono far pratica nell’arrotolare i roll perché si frantumano appena li tocchi. Ma per il prezzo esagerato che hanno, più di 500$ in 4 potrebbero essere un pó più gentili quanto meno. La lista dei vini a partire da 70$ in su non è molto ben fornita e noi che il vino lo produciamo oltre che a berlo siamo rimasti al quanto delusi. Nobu decisamente un altro servizio, e abbiamo pure speso meno!😬
Direi 3 stelle ma solo perché il cibo ripeto era di nostro gradimento.

To begin with, even though we had made a reservation a few days before with a request to be seated outside, there was no table available for us. The hosts inside sent us outside only to be sent back by the outside hostess after she told us that she didn't have any tables available.
The service, once we were seated inside was good, except they forgot one of our starters!
the food was delicious, however definitely not worth the price . The exotic wild caught sashimi sampler 80 USD ex was definitely not worth it. The sushi rolls were good but way overpriced! The wines were also extremely expensive! When the check arrived there was an extra glass of wine on it which we didn't order!
I must say that we were seated in the inner part of the restaurant where the ambience was a lot more attractive than the outside part, which looked a bit cheap. The restaurant was also very noisy wherever you were seated! So, not our best experience!

Simple, food isn’t nearly worth the price. Paying 5 star prices for 3 star food. To be fair, I’m getting the sense that is the norm at all the restaurants are at the Baha Mar.

I had indicated (because I was asked) it was a birthday celebration for my fiancee but no one at the restaurant acknowledged or showed any possibility that they received the info. So we left feeling a bit bummed at the entire dinner experience.
The hot food was cold when reaching the table.
Drinks were never asked to be refilled.
The restaurant seems to be overrated.

The portions are tiny the manager Hiram is an idiot . 4 people ate 20 minutes apart . The manager claimed that the waiter was at fault for not advising us that the main course will come out at different times . I said if he did we would have left . Hiram walked away in a huff he should be fired ! Another manager gave us free dessert . She tried her best . Avoid this place .

My biggest problem with this restaurant was that everything was premade and obviously waiting in the fridge. Within two minutes of ordering all of our sushi dishes were delivered to our table. Our drinks hadn’t even arrived. I prefer time to enjoy a cocktail and at least 15 minutes before being served my meal.
