We were 45 minutes late for our reservation on Valentines Day (our GPS lead us astray to the wrong location) but thankfully they still seated us. Our waiter was very attentive to our needs w/o being overbearing. The Fried Calamari app was very good, not too much breading and we enjoyed the sauce. My wife really enjoyed her Sushi Combo plate and how it was presented. She was 'stuffed' after eating. I'm not a big sushi fan and had the Steak Tataki. Although it's flank steak it was perfectly seasoned and tender. We were in and out in under an hour which was perfect since we had another engagement to get to. My wife also had a Lemon Drop and raved about that too. Very reasonably priced, we got in and out, including a 20% tip, for under $100. After reading some of the negative comments on Yelp I was a bit apprehensive about dining there but overall we had a great experience and will be going back again.

The hostess was amazing and even wished us happy anniversary without prompting as it was noted in the reservation. They made us a desert that even wished us happy anniversary!

The food was amazing and prompt service, the only thing that was a con for the first time for us here was our waitress.

When she noted that we were there for the Queen's feast, she seems almost to not care about quality service for our table but she rebounded in the middle of the meal and it was a great night. Check this place out you won't regret it.

Food was excellent. We were there for restaurant week and we had a choice of an appetizer and for an entree we chose two sushi rolls each. They were abundant and flavorful. The sushi was not overly creative but it was fresh.

This is the second time I've been to this restaurant. The first time I ordered sushi and the second off the hibachi menu. The food was ... meh. Nothing special, especially for the price.

The booth area of the restaurant is cute and good for conversation as it is more quiet than the main seating area.

We have eaten here before as well as the one in Mooresville. We are always very pleased with the Sushi quality, it’s freshness and presentation. Prices are reasonable for the quality and ambiance of this excellent sushi restaurant. We requested a booth this time for a bit of a different experience. The booths are definitely a bit more secluded and private even romantic. However, the booth entrance is about 5’10” so watch your head if you are 5’10.5” or above. I’m 5’11” and bumped my head on the way out, ouch! Our waiter even warned us.

Dinner was a special occasion with my wife and son so we ordered dessert after dinner. There were several options, we settled on creme brulee cheesecake and some kind of flourless chocolate truffle cake. The cheesecake was as expected and good, but the gultten free chocolate truffle cake which was more like a giant truffle than any cake was the most awesome dessert I have ever had at a restaurant. The three of us shared both desserts and a little left, the portion size was generous and good for sharing. Well done Pisces, we’ll be back!

The sushi was very good with a beautiful presentation, and the hibachi dinner and loco moco received good comments from my fellow diners. Service was a little slow and inattentive despite there being few diners. It took some effort to get our waitress' attention, and some of my sushi arrived well after everything else. The chairs are oddly uncomfortable, with a bar across the mid-back that digs into your spine (each of us struggled with it, despite being very different heights and sizes) and the bottom of it has a strange pitch so your rear is quite low but the front of your legs are high. But, the sushi was very good and that is the most important thing.

Really enjoyed Pisces- the sushi was excellent and my drink was prepared perfectly. We ordered the Screaming O, Dynamite, XOXO and Main Squeeze rolls. All were delicious! I'll definitely be going back for another date night or even a group dinner. My only complaint was the temperature in the restaurant. I was freezing. The waitress assured my that they were working on a fix- but even my husband was cold throughout dinner- and he's never cold.

Pisces has consistently had the top 2 freshest sushi in town. They do have a lot of speciality rolls which are good too but my preference is to order nigiri/sashimi and especially from their fresh menu which has a lot of exotic sushi not found on a typical menu. Recommended.

We really enjoyed this place for Sushi. Many of the rolls were very creative and not your ordinary run of the mill sushi. The staff was very good too. They worked as a team and checked back with us often to make sure everything was OK. Will repeat next time in Charlotte.

Pisces was very accomodating for me, for I tried to place a reservation for a large group on a Friday night and very few restaurants would take such a reservation. The staff was very easy to work with and they even called me the day of to confirm my reservation. The service was attentive and fast, and the food tasted wonderful with plenty of options to choose from. I loved the ambience, especially having live music in the background that was not too loud. I was very happy overall with my experience here!

Too expensive for what you actually receive. It was my birthday dinner and the waitress did not seem to care or even say Happy Birthday. It felt like an average dinner that was not worth the expense. Definitely would not recommend dining for a special occasion.

Flight was canceled and my wife and I wanted sushi. Did some homework and found Pisces. Excellent from start to finish. The service was on point and the food was fresh, delicious and creative. We don't live in town, but to anyone who does, consider yourselves lucky. It is awesome, my taste buds thank you.

The overall feel is creative and unique. One of the best sushi places I've been to. We live in Raleigh but will definitely return when we're back in Charlotte for a weekend. The service was friendly, and well executed. As a former server, I tend to pick up on those traits such as refilling our drinks right before the food comes out. It was all done flawlessly. Will definitely be back.

Went for Charlotte Restaurant week....first time here and will definitely be back. Service and food were excellent. Sushi rolls, steak hibachi, apps were all very good. We sat in a booth away from the bar/main part of restaurant and were able to have a conversation without being disturbed by a lot of noise. Would definitely recommend
