Always a great meal. The sushi is fresh and yummy. Every time I am here, I think the menu is too limited, but when the food comes it is spectacular. The Bleau Roll is 4 star!

Impeccable service, decent ambience, but ordinary menu options. Servers are kind and attentive. The physical menu will wow you as it glows in your face in the very low-lit restaurant. Portions are small and the sushi dissapoint with high rice ratios. The steakhouse across the hall was better. I rather favored the prepackaged salad and deserts at Chez Bon-Bon again over a dinner at Blade.

Trying to combine two restaurants Lido and Blade didn’t mesh well. It felt like we were at a hotel buffet area rather than the vibe we expected. Service due to this is awkward and more like an IHOP than a high end restaurant. Should have gone to Hakkesan.

Picked this restaurant over Nobu (next door) because it was rated higher. It certainly wasn’t terrible but I am extremely dubious this place was better than Nobu. In terms of value, this was an average sushi restaurant but priced as though it was exclusive.

I have a number of dietary restrictions, including celiac disease, which can result in an unpleasant hospital trip if I eat something "unsafe". I called ahead, spoke to the manager (Rafii), and was assured that the restaurant would do their best to accommodate my needs. This was the biggest understatement possible. Not only did the manager come to our table and assist the server throughout the meal (talk about teamwork!), but the chef himself came to my table to find out exactly what I needed, answer my questions, and adapt an existing menu item to match my needs. The meal and cocktails were incredible, as was the service. If anyone is interested in recommendations: my husband had the Blade specialty roll and I had the Ronin. Both were fresh, unique, and expertly crafted.

After dinner, my husband (who has no dietary restrictions) ordered a dessert for himself off of the menu. Not wanting me to feel left out, Rafii asked the server to run to the nearby bakery to grab a "safe" treat for me to enjoy as well. Needless to say, we will definitely be returning to Blade on our next trip to Miami Beach. Thank you to the entire team who made this experience unforgettable!!! It is so refreshing to see a team like Blade's, which functions as a unit and treats dietary restrictions and food allergies with the utmost seriousness.

Deterioration. People in flipflops and shorts. The sushi bar was a mess--thats the first thing you see and the chairs were all over the place. The servers were nice, but got a lot wrong several times. The maitre d's were dialing it in. The food was excellent, but there is a risk that the kitchen will lose its inspiration/will to be perfect given the mess outside. In general, the lobby of the Fountainbleu looked like a bus station. People were getting pizza deliveries. Makes me sad-it used to be semi-glamorous and fun to people watch all year round. Now its just trashy. Ironically, the hotel spends a lot of money on its "hardware".

We did the nigiri tasting, shared one seaweed salad and one small cold sake. 16 pieces of nigiri, while delicious, should never run $200 all-in. Service was impeccable, sushi was delicious, just can’t get over the price.

Bastante desagradable porque cuando vino la cuenta parecíamos que habíamos cenado en un restaurante de 27 estrellas y lo que era es un nada vulgar cafetería sin ambiente sin luz sin decoración comida bueno y nada más y carísimo fue un robo salí con la sensación de atraco

Friendly, attentive and unpretentious service. Very good sushi with excellent special rolls as well as Japanese staples such as tempura and miso soup. Restaurant location is fun, at the end of the buzzing Fontainbleu "food hall" where there is great people watching. The restaurant itself is peaceful, dim and elegant.

This was our first time at Blade and we were pleasantly surprised. Very intimate environment, even with another restaurant on the other side of the location. Friendly and attentive customer service and great quality sushi. We had the 5 sushi platter as an appetizer and it was delicious and incredibly fresh. Would definitely go back!

Chef was great, came out to introduce himself. We came for my birthday from Sarasota for the Omekase. The rice wasn't flavorful like sushi rice normally is. Quality of fish slightly above average, but definitely not the highest quality I would have expected for Omekase. Some of the selections tasted very fishy, and not in a pleasant way. Ambience does not lend itself to Japanese sushi experience. We had sake pairing and had to ask for more detailed explanation of what each one was. Also would have been nice to have been told which sake to pair with what fish. Server and staff friendly.
