    Sushi quality was excellent and there was a great selection of cocktails. Its the Keys and its inside the nicest resort in the area so you should expect to pay a premium which we certainly did but we have no regrets...the meal was excellent.

    We had another excellent meal but we ordered the mussels again and you’re still serving them with pita. This is sacrilege, as you can not soak up the broth with pita. Please serve with garlic bread, toast points, etc.

    We have never been served lukewarm miso soup before. We were afraid to ask them to heat it. Felt like all the sushi was prepared/frozen then thawed to serve. The couple beside us wanted to do a tasting of sushi (which was on the menu), but was told there was no chef so it was not possible. Which, reaffirms my thought that the sushi was prepared ahead of time and not fresh. What a waste of a meal and money.

    Bonsai and Dagwood rolls were phenomenal! We also ordered the Big Kahuna and Firecracker rolls plus the gyoza special, which were very delicious. Edamame was good but could've used more salt. Also, we didn't get any of the chili oil in the edamame from what we could tell. Ambiance, overlooking the ocean was great. Nice and peaceful atmosphere. They gave us a free special dessert for our anniversary, which wasn't even on the menu! Some of the best sushi we've ever had!

    Located in the Cheeca Resort, the view was scenic. The resort is worn down. The restaurant was the same. Food was typical for the average fare. The special appetizer was a shrimp gyoza which looked like it was from a frozen package. The rolls were small but plentiful. The desserts were most disappointing and also looked like they were from a frozen package. There are plenty of restaurants outside the resort I would try instead.

    Terrible meal, the “special” of the night were two types of dumplings, pork and prawn. Both arrived still frozen in the middle and after returning them 3 times they finally arrived lukewarm and we stopped trying. A glass of ice I asked 3 separate times and never received it. The sashimi I ordered was a white fish with jalapeño peppers, fish had zero taste and jalapeño peppers had no spice so this dish wasn’t eaten. The salmon sashimi was so so at best. We had a couple of sushi rolls that were average at the very best. The waitress tried to explain that the dumplings couldn’t be served too hot, as they might fall apart, a new one on me. 2 other tables around us were also sending their night’s special dumplings back as being frozen. At these prices they need to try to make the food really nice but fell totally flat. Give a big miss

    The food was excellent. Service very good. The portions of food were small for the price. A large sake which was quite small was $50 and didn’t taste twice as good as the $25 sake. My steak roll was delicious but not much there. The desserts were good but not great.

    Very nice. Food was amazing. Service was a tad slow but that's probably due to staffing issues. Very accommodating. We celebrated our anniversary and they brought us a surprise free desert.

    Server made multiple inappropriate comments such as how one person in our party was sweating (though offered nothing to help). Also tried to push us into ordering the special appetizer even though we said we were not interested. We were the only table there and it took over 20 minutes for our food to come out. We ordered several rolls and one of our party chose not to eat a lot of the rice. The sever for some reason felt it appropriate to comment on this with a look of “what’s wrong with her.” The table next to us arrived about 20 min after we did and we received our food at the exact same time (they had a different server) We sat waiting for our server to clear our plates after we were done eating for about 10 minutes. Once she cleared the plates she commented almost shaming us for not wanting dessert. It took another 10 min for the check to arrive. Upon leaving all the staff including the sushi chefs stared at us as we left, not one saying a word. This restaurant should most certainly be avoided. There are many far better options on Islamorada.

    The quality of the fish could have been a little better, but overall nice. The torched avocado was AMAZING
