Our party of four loved the food and service and would recommend the restaurant. The one thing we noticed, which reduced my 5-star rating to a 4-star rating, was that the gigantic TV above the bar, facing many tables, was a very annoying distraction and seemed out of place in this setting. We asked to be moved out of sight of this monster distraction and luckily, as we were early, were accommodated.
Origami is the best sushi in the Minneapolis area!
Origami is always one of my favorites. The food is exceptional, a nice variety of sushi plus cooked items that everyone can enjoy. The staff is friendly and very helpful.
Great food but the lights were turned up way to bright. Create some ambiance and dim those lights!
Excellent Happy Hour with great Appetizers and Maki.
We had an amazing time. The sushi was fresh, vibrant, and beautifully plated. Our server was attentive even though it was busy, and he times our meal well while covering other tables. Other items we all shared were delicious and of a good portion size. We brought family from out of town here and we are so glad we did. We will definitely return.
Clearly the best Sushi in town.
Excellent food and excellent service! The sushi was hands down some of the best we have ever had. 🙌
Fantastic visit. Tuna toro and salmon toro were buttery deliciousness. They were out of the spicy clams, so gave us a free octopus salad instead and it was very tasty. They also gave us one other spicy "mistake" app free or charge. Combined with happy hour pricing, we had a wonderful meal for an exceptional value.
Excellent sushi. Would be easier to enjoy without the TV. Some help with parking would be appreciated (at least a bit of discount in the ramp).
My favorite place to get Japanese food in the cities. The are always amazing, and the food is always top quality.
Excellent 5 course valentine special. Excellent value. The black cod was outstanding. I hope they will serve this on regular basis or at least for other special occasions
Valentine’s Day - Good sushi. Decent albeit slow service. Sat upstairs where it’s peaceful and quiet.
Really good sushi. Good Saki selection. A bit pricy, but the food is worth it.
The food as usual was delicious. It was 2 adults and 3 kids--2 of whom really like sushi. My son's favorite restaurant is Origami but we usually sit at the sushi bar since it's usually just 2 of us. And now we know why. Our original order took 30 minutes to come out (okay, it's sushi and it takes time). But, we put in a 2nd order for 2 rolls and 40 minutes later nothing. We ended up cancelling the order as the kids at that point were no longer hungry and tired. So, I guess be prepared to wait a long time at peak meal time (Saturday 6-8pm) or go earlier and sit at the sushi bar.
We were 7 people for dinner, including 2 children. Food was served promptly and was delicious as usual. The portion size was smaller than I remembered from previous visits.
Went for a birthday celebration dinner specifically to try the Fugu, advertised on their website, but upon arrival we were told that there was none available until 4 days later. If going there for a specific type of fish, I advise calling ahead to ask because they do not update their site.
Great atmosphere and quick service. The food was priced just right for what you are eating. All in all a great experience. I will come back.
Have ben going to Origami for years and the uptown location has never lived up to the original.
The food was fine but not outstanding, the Sushi chefs competent but not great. Still a good place to go but don't expect too much.
Origami is the best sushi restaurant in Mpls for the quality and value. Their happy hour is very good (and all day Sundays) and they also have amazing ramen. We go regularly and have never been disappointed in the least.
Hi! My 17 year old daughter and I had dinner at Origami before seeing a movie at the Lagoon Theatre. Service was great, and we loved the happy hour sushi menu. We will definitely be back!
Lovely evening out. Great food and service.
We had an amazing dinner! It was the best sushi that I have ever had. Our server was attentive and so much fun. We will definitely be returning.
One word- yummy. Ok more words, great service. Fun atmosphere and great location.
This restaurant is listed as having gluten free options. The option is salad with no dressing.
Sushi was yerrible
Origami has been delivering for decades and still does the job well. The food was as good as always and the wait staff was terrific. Great overall experience.
I ate at Origami when it was still in North Loop and came here for a birthday expecting to be similarly impressed - I wasn't. Very run-of-the-mill sushi. Service was pleasant but a bit slow.
I am big fan of sushi but yesterday was not good. I paid 170$ but it was not worth I am big fan of sushi but yesterday was not good. I paid 170$ but it was not worth I am big fan of sushi but yesterday was not good. I paid 170$ but it was not worth
I love Origami! The staff are friendly and helpful, the menu is excellent and offers choices for both sushi and non-sushi eaters.
Really great food - and service!
Try the poke bowl.
Love love love Origami. They have the freshest fish in the whole city. We sit at the sushi bar and the sushi chefs are all great. This is the one place we go where we eat almost exclusively raw fish because we don't trust the raw fish at other places. But, their cooked rolls are delicious too.
You also get a little noodle appetizer and pineapple with passionfruit sauce at the end (and 2 Pocky sticks!).
Tasty if fairly expensive sushi that is tasty but not exceptional. The staff is very friendly and good at giving recommendations in my experience.
We came here to celebrate a birthday party and all of us (6) had a great time. We had made a reservation and were seated right away, although it wasn't too busy for 7 pm on a Friday. Our server comp'd the birthday guest with a free drink! The staff was very attentive and timely. The sushi and noodles were both amazing, appetizers were delicious as well. We had the wontons, short ribs, and pork gyoza all pretty good, albeit a bit expensive. The nigiri and sashimi were all served room temperature, but I didn't mind considering the wonderful texture and light flavor of each fish. For maki we had the Philly X (surprisingly good for a fried roll), Black Widow, TNT, Feisty Philly, and the California roll. TNT was definitely the best and pretty spicy. Highly recommend for it's atmosphere, the staff, and the food! This would be a great place for a business dinner as it's pretty quiet and has an upscale ambience.
The sushi and origami rice was very good. Great atmosphere
Took an out o town friend out for dinner. The waitress was the exact type of server I would want. Didn't engage in an actual conversation, prompt on the refills, and a good balance of frequency for checking up on us. We stayed for 2 and a half hours and never felt pressure to leave.
We went here for a birthday dinner and the food and service were excellent!
Requested for patio seating. While the seats and table were okay, the atmosphere outdoors was not that inviting. It's not the restaurant's fault though since they are situated right by the entrance of a parking ramp.
Cameron, our server, was attentive, and did update us on how busy the evening was, and notified us that if we already had orders in mind to order the apps, entrées and drinks all at once. Drinks were treat and a good pour. The food (sushi, teriyaki chicken, salad, gyoza and takoyaki) was tasty but not anything one can't get at several other Japanese restaurant. I think the sushi is more pricey than what they are. I'd still return and try other menu items to see if any other dishes would be more exciting.
The sushi was great , my favorite was a sour plum roll. Also, I liked the staff very much.
