    Went with a party of 4. Were greater and seated immediately. Brayden was our server. He was very nice and got the vibe of the night. The FOH was on it. BOH what’s up? Food came out staggered to an unorganized point. I know kitchen staff is hard to find but this was not planned or organized. If you have one guy back there with a pan, don’t have such an extensive menu. I got my sushi in a good timeframe. One of our party got their kitchen dish at the same time. 10 minutes later another came out and 20 minutes after that the last came out. So almost 30 minutes between individual dinners coming out. Brayden checked in on us and stayed on top of it without us having to say anything to him. So if you want to go for a quick dinner not the place. If you were planning on hanging out and picking and drinking. Good spot.

    This was our second time eating here and it was not as good as the first time. I was disappointed in the size of the fish on yellowtail sushi. I ordered salmon sushi and got smoked salmon sushi. When I mentioned it to our server, she said “ Oh you wanted the other salmon?’ The sushi nachos were really good. I liked the Hokkaido roll also. I will go there again but at this price pint, I really expect a 5 star experience.

    We went for my birthday and what a great night! I’m sorry I can’t remember my servers name, but she was super sweet with glasses! We all had a great time! It was majority of the party’s first time, they all now understand why I love this place so much! We all did a variety of things and shared. I forever stick my my statement, you’ll never taste something bad here lol

    This was our first time taking the kids. My daughter likes sushi and she wanted to go for her bday. She loved the non alcoholic geisha drink. Everything was delicious as usual. My son loved his chicken fried rice. Everyone had a great time. Even dessert was yummy!

    The absolute worst service I have come across in a long time. It’s as if our “server/waiter” was just a warm body they grabbed off the street because the restaurant was short handed or something. How was he ever hired I’ll never figure out. I don’t expect to come back anytime soon because of the obvious lax care for good customer service.

    We loved our time at Dolly Dautaun! Met up there w/family to try it for the first time. My husband had the best dish-noodles w/beef! The fried Tempura Eggplant was great also! The drinks were so much fun—they have such a variety! I highly recommend!

    Cool vibe, great staff, and we’ll thought out drinks. Generous cuts of fish on our nigiri. Really enjoyed the music they picked and loved the projections on the wall. Price wise it felt like everything was $1-$2 more than it should be, but it’s was a solid date night spot.

    Dokyo DauntaunResponded on August 1, 2022Thank you for your feedback! We wish you could feel the value a little more but are doing our best to keep prices from soaring during this time, when it seems prices are going up all over the place.

    We were for the 1st time, 3 adults and a child. The place is to loud and not clean. Waiting time was 50min!!!!! The sushi we ordered was dry and not yami.. My order was "avocado bomb", the server says its so good , but it was yaks, no flavor, no salt. Just like left over food mixed together. Im Not recommended to go there. One star!

    Made reservations for our 40th wedding anniversary. Was greeted and seated right away. The service was good. However, the ambience and was more of a bar setting than a higher end restaurant. The food and drinks were good but a little pricey for the overall experience.

    Very busy and crowded. Staff was running into one another. We waited over 10 minutes for a server. Then another 20 for one cocktail. We ordered 4 items and each was brought out individually the last one fried rice 10 minutes after the others.

    This was our first time visiting the restaurant. A table wasn’t ready for our reservation. Reservation marked as “Anniversary” but there was no acknowledgement of that whatsoever from the hostess. We were sat next to a loud table of four. Waited 10 minutes to order. Table beside us got their food 15 min before us after we ordered at the same time. Were Asked for a bowl of miso soup 25 min after sitting (we were asked when the two tables beside us were asked). Food came in 40 minutes after sitting. The soft shell crab was lukewarm at best. The Korean soup was okay. The kimchi lacked flavor. The steamed white rice was probably the only good item we ate. We ate half the food. We told the waiter about the food but we still offered to pay for it. It was a horrible experience especially for our anniversary dinner. Also, the aesthetic of the website doesn’t reflect the bar/club atmosphere at the location. We didn’t expect it to be loud. Not recommend for an anniversary date or similar dates.
