Pisces Sushi Bar & Lounge Ratings and Reviews
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
Definitely one of the best spots for sushi in Charlotte. Their happy hour is good and the daily HH specials are worth the trip. Sushi is always fresh and you can order items not on the menu, i.e. Tekka Donburi which is hard to find in Charlotte.
Good food, good music, and GREAT service is available at Pisces.
I made a reservation a couple of hours before and I'm glad I did. The place was full all night. The service was outstanding. Always spot on but never pushy. We ordered an appetizer, seaweed salads and sushi to share. Everything came out right on time in the correct order. This may seem like a no-brainer but so many places get it wrong. I was very impressed that an empty dish never stayed on the table very long. The food was as good as the service. No complaints. I look forward to my next visit.
Had 7:30 reservation. Waited behind 2 other parties to be seated that did not have reservations and when we got to the hostess, she didn't have any tables left. What was the point of using open table if a reservation doesn't guarantee you a table. Also, food was eh. Waitress forgot items we ordered. We won't be back.
Had a reservation, although we were seated a little over 45 minutes later, the booth was worth the wait. They are shaped liked coves. Interesting. The only thing I didn't like was the cocktails. I had a Bittersweet Symphony-- it just tasted like puree and ice. I was surprised there were no special martini's, like Lychee.
The food though-- soooo good. The bacon wrapped scallops. amazing!! we got 2 rolls and 4 sushi pieces. you can taste the fresh fish. We chose the Karyu and the Aries Rolls and 4 salmon nigiri pieces.
The place is not that big. My second drink was my standard Dirty Martini Straight up. But Definitely going back to try more items.
It was very busy, so they are doing something right!
I was surprised they had nothing with Smoked Salmon though. Oh well.
