We celebrated my birthday on a Saturday night at 6:00. Our server had good suggestions for drinks and apps. She then was full of knowledge for our sushi choices. My husband doesn't like asparagus and they were more than happy to make the sushi sans vegetable. We had fried bananas for dessert...another fantastic recommendation from our server. We would recommend this restaurant to our friends for a special occasion and are looking forward to visiting happy hour soon! Overall, wonderful experience and we are happy with our dining choice.

Nice décor and ambiance, but very small portions. Basic sushi rolls were the smallest I've ever seen. Other rolls were fine. Calamari appetizer was unusual, huge pieces of squid and very heavily breaded. It was my first visit and I probably won't go back.

We had reservations and were seated at the sushi bar which we did not like. If I would have know we would potentially be seated there I would have requested not to in my reservation details. It's difficult to converse sitting like that. After being seated it took about ten minutes for a server to wait on us although numerous walked by. And the Server waiting on the couple next to us at the sushi bar completely ignored us. The food and drinks were good and quickly delivered. However, the overall price for everything was too steep for the service we received and where we were seated.

I took my sister to Drunken Fish before the Lady Gaga concert at Sprint Center- so nice to make a reservation and be able to eat on Happy Hour prices and menu! Drinks were delicious and the service was fabulous! Danielle was our server she was awesome and on top of it!

Took over 90 minutes to get our appetizer. People sat after our arrival finished their meal paid and exited before our main course even arrived. Server was rude and unapologetic stating that the sushi bar got busy. Food was substandard and over priced

I have my birthday dinner here every year and my girlfriends and I always have a blast. It's our favorite tradition. The servers are always friendly, knowledgeable and fast. The sushi is my absolute favorite and the cocktails are always made well. We had a blast. However, it was my initial reaction with the hostess that could have made our night better. She refused to sit us till our whole party arrived even though we had a reservation. She chose to sit 2 large walk in parties who arrived after us and made us wait. It makes no difference if two of us sit before the other few guests arrive. Instead she sat us 15 mins after my reservation time and didn't even walk us to our table. She said, "I guess you can sit now, your table is upstairs and to the right." I was shocked that she wasn't walking us to our table herself. That is her job. Thankfully her lack of costumer service didn't ruin our whole experience.

Awesome as always. The lobster spring rolls are phenomenal as well always hitting a solid homerun on their sushi rolls - white tiger is one of our standing favorites. Walking distance to both music hall and sprint center make this place one of our staples for date night. They make it easy to get in and out on time. We waited a little bit long for drinks and the check, but otherwise it was a great night.

DF is always amazing from a fun, attentive waitstaff to sushi chefs who go the extra mile. I order weird stuff and they're always willing to give it a go. Does not disappoint for ambience and the rooftop view is incredible.

Our son and daughter enjoyed the sushi (and lots of it) while my husband and I had noodle bowls. Really good. The appetizers were delicious also. The only negative was my husband ordered shrimp and got chicken. Didn't mention it. Would have inconvenienced everyone else. A plus, however, is that it's right on a streetcar line stop.

Whole group was pleased with this restaurant. Having all heard mixed reviews, we approached uncertain, only to find ourselves entirely satisfied. We will all be back. The sushi and sashimi combo plate was great. The cuts of fish were full of flavor and quality. We enjoyed (Sunday night) and the rooftop table. We could hear live music from center stage at PNL, and enjoyed our dinner in comfortable conversation. Great evening.

We felt like it was a bit pricey. We paid $70 for two, just for food & felt like we didn't get much to eat. For that price we should of had full bellies. We spent even more on a few drinks. I'm all for paying for good sushi but compared to serving sizes we get elsewhere, you didn't get even half the amount for the cost.

Our server, Rory, was super friendly and helpful both with the menu and with finding a good bar to hang out at after our meal. We were seated at a glowing red table which was bright and made it somewhat difficult to read the menu, but the food and drinks were creative, beautiful, and delicious. Well worth the price and trip out to Kansas City!
