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

The customer service was amazing . I asked were the restrooms were and the manager had a person escort me . 2 different supervisors checked in to make sure everything was good . I was dining alone but had plenty of attention . Food was creative and very well prepared and presented . Great wine list and fantastic desserts . Very enjoyable visit and will be back .

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.

We had a confirmed Open Table reservation (email & profile to back it up), which they would not acknowledge - and were actually quite rude about. We used Open Table for other reservations at the hotel throughout the week and didn't have any issues - so was very disappointing.

The sushi is delicious and fresh. They bring fresh fish into this hotel by boat daily, so you can never go wrong. This is one of the few spots in the Fontainebleau where you can order a sushi roll and salad, without overeating or breaking the bank. That said, I was disappointed to see that they convert the hotel breakfast room into the dining room for sushi at dinner time. It felt a bit fake (like a sushi lounge on a TV sitcom) and I couldn't lose the image of kids eating chocolate chip pancakes at my table just a few hours before. Bottom line, delicious sushi, capable service, little ambiance. As long as you know what to expect, you will enjoy your meal.

We had low expectations going in, but were pleasantly surprised by both the food and the service. The hamachi, which is perfectly paired with Asian pear and yes glaze, is phenomenal and a definite must try. The rolls, the sushi and the sashimi were all fresh and tasty. Our server from Morocco (who's name I have sadly forgotten) was lovely. She was very friendly and also very knowledgeable about the menu. She made some great recommendations for both cocktails and food. We will definitely eat here again.

The Fontainebleau has some serious dining choices---Blade, while still upscale, is less formal. The sushi is very good and a couple of selections were quite creative. But it's in the Vida space which gives it more of a dinette feel than the food deserves.

Restaurant with great atmosphere, good wait staff & great food. However, the menu pricing was way out of line for what you received. Extremely small portions with extremely high prices. Based on the prices & portion sizes would not visit the restaurant again!!

We found it expensive with poor ingredients. A crunchy roll with chopped tuna was a really cheap and bad dish. None of the sashimi tasted very fresh.
