We were thrilled to find this amazing restaurant open and creating incredible sushi downtown St. Louis with the Coronavirus scare evident by empty or closed restaurants. The hostess was the only server and she was training that night and still
managed to be upbeat, pleasant, efficient and kind as she presented our delicious food. How we wished we lived in St. Louis, instead of visiting, as this would be a favorite spot to dine!

This was my first time to this restaurant, I happened to be in St. Louis for business and had a desire to eat some Sushi. Upon arrival the restaurant was empty, I sat at the Sushi bar and ordered a Rainbow Roll and combination fried rice. The rice was decent but the Sushi left a lot to be desired! The amount of fish on the roll was very little and visible a small amount to the eye, the cost of the Rainbow Roll was approximately $14.00 which for a well made roll is not that expensive, but this roll, again, did not meet the standard. I won't be visiting this place again when I return to St. Louis and I definitely don't recommend it for anyone looking for a good Sushi restaurant in the the area of downtown.

Overall, this was an average or a bit above average experience. What was disappointing was the product we ordered: 6 course Valentine’s Day meal. This wasn’t the greatest not because of the food quality, but because our waitress forgot about course number 1 and then lied trying to make my wife and I buy the idea that the package was a 5 instead of 6 course meal. Thankfully, the manager understood and didn’t allow us to pay full price.

Pretty quiet, (rainy winter Sunday night). Our server was pleasant and helpful. Food was decent, but not the best value for sure. The amount of wasabi paste they give is tiny and the drinks are overpriced.

It has more of a TGIFridays meets cafeteria atmosphere. I was expecting more of a dining experience. You can see the kitchen through the food window and swinging doors. Didn’t have a restaurant feel.

The restaurant took our reservation through OpenTable; however, when we arrived, the restaurant was closed. I am not sure whose fault it is - restaurant's or OpenTable, but this was a very disappointing experience.

Food was good, but nothing special. I would enjoy a meal here but It wouldn’t be my first choice when desiring cuisine in this category. My only complaint is that my hot tea and ice water tasted fishy, which was off putting. I do not recommend the sticky fries, especially for the price tag.

The food was good. The service was okay, but our server wasn't always around, which was strange because it was not particularly busy. All in all, a good experience.

Dakota was our server and he was amazing and very attentive to me and my wife needs. I don't usually make comments but the service was amazing. Food was very yummy as well. I ve been trying to find a sushi that I really like and the California roll with spicy salmon is a new favorite, also suggested by Dakota. Thank you for my experience, see you soon.

The food was sub-par. The fish was fine, I mean I don’t think we’re going to get sick or anything, but the food was just not very good. There are 5+ sushi restaurants within 5 miles of Ballpark Village that are exponentially better. Save yourself $75 worth of regret and hit a different spot.

I was there for a Blues playoff game. They ran out of ice and it would take over an hour to get drinks. Some food that was ordered never arrived. The restaurant should have staffed up and been prepared. They could have made at least 4 times the amount of money off our group plus everyone else in the restaurant.

Sticky floors, smelled like a typical bar (spilled beer mixed with faint chlorine). Sushi was okay. Surprisingly empty for how busy the rest of Ballpark Village was that night.

We made a reservation here to be close to the action of game day at Ballpark Village with a little less noise and crowding than in the main facility. Mission accomplished. The food was wonderful and the service was great. We watched the Blues game on televisions all around the restaurant and ate our way through the starters and sushi menu. Try the calamari and I highly recommend the Red Dragon Roll.

My mom and I were going to a concert after dinner. We ordered salads from the menu specials. We waited 35 to 40 minutes for these salads that had only bacon as the protein so there was no reason why it should have taken as long as it did. We were told several times that the salads were on the way. We were told the dressing for this salad wasn't made, so they had to make the dressing. We were told there were no cooks in the kitchen other than the manager. We arrived at 5:30 and it was not busy. When we ordered it wasn't busy. If I go there again I will definitely not order a salad. I'll make sure to order something that takes a bit and actual cooking time to be ready to serve because all kinds of food came out to tables that were not occupied when we got there. Seems our salads may have been put off for preparation of other more complicated dishes.

Sat at bar as they recommended & had happy hour specials. Edamame was delicious, had miso soup & the gluten free shrimp fried rice. Went with a friend before a concert. Bartender little slow considering not very busy. Waited a long time to get our bill.

We were not happy with any of our food selections. Sea Bass “worst I ever had” per my husband. Yoka Soba was very bland and the beef in it was not good. Would not order sushi here again, made me uneasy. We actually won’t be returning.
