When seated at the table, the chair that was pulled out for me was littered with debris and wet marks (as if a child had sat there before me). I told the staff, and they just moved it to the table next to me, and 5 min later I watched as someone else sat it in. Also the menu had stains on the pages — gross!

But the main issue we had was the appetizers coming out after our main course. And then the fried rice we ordered came out long after we finished our main course. Were they expecting it to be our desert?

As we waited for the rice, the waiter assured me that “the manager was aware” — but the manager did not come over, did not apologize, did not send desert, and did not take the rice off the bill even though we had to take it to-go because it was so late.

I am local and have been to BR Sushi several times. But I was disappointed with the management and service.

My husband & I ate here on our first night at the Plymouth. We were very happy with the food, service, and ambiance. Looking forward to having more of their sushi at Happy Hour from 3-6. Highly recommend.

I'm sorry, but for how expensive this place this I expect the fish to be excellent and there to be a little creativity, otherwise you're just paying a big bill for standard sushi you can get anywhere. To be exact, I only ordered sushi, no appetizers, and then got the key lime dessert, which was phenomenal. A few pieces were excellent like the toro and uni, but a few pieces were just bad - albacore, amberjack, fluke, and yellowtail could have been anything - no flavor and didn't seem fresh. Service was good, very sweet staff. The hotel that the restaurant is located in is so fabulous and fun so I get the ambiance attraction, but can't recommend the restaurant itself to anyone.

A little loud. Wish the sushi rolls weren’t “minced” tuna and “minced” crab. Roasted green beans were fantastic.

So, this was an opportunity for me to take my daughter's family with teen kids for really good sushi. Some are not fans of raw fish, but they enjoyed the sushi rolls and soup. Further, this restaurant has the best fried chicken I have found anywhere. The raw-fish reluctant loved the fried chicken. Plus with the terrific weather that day, we were able to sit outside and enjoy a truly California day.

My favorite sushi spot in Miami. No complaints except for the constant 90s rap. I absolutely love rap but they need a more varied playlist. The Blue Ribbon restaurants in New York have amazing music in the background. It adds to the experience. If Miami’s restaurant could work on that it would be absolutely fabulous.

Best sashimi in Miami but why do you need a DJ at 7.30pm playing loud music? I was with my GF and we needed to request to lower the music so that we can hear each other talk. The table next to us requested to change tables and we finally requested they lower the music. I eat at BR often, and have left 3 reviews now. Food is unbelievably good. I’m a sashimi connoisseur and this is as good as it gets. The oh toro is out of this world and the sashimi deluxe plate is the most amazing quality, melt in your mouth fish at an exceptional value. But why oh why do you guys feel the need to play loud music at a restaurant where the food is the star. At lest keep the outdoor area speakers on low volume.

Seafood was fresh but not very imaginative and overpriced. We got the Blue Ribbon sushi and sashimi special platter but for the price was mostly just run of the mill sushi, sashimi and rolls. Fresh and a lot of fish but for the price I was expecting more of a wow factor.
