Best sushi/meal I've had in a long time. Not just your standards (although they have some standards). Clearly there is a laser focus on quality and presentation. While the quality was spot on I was more impressed with presentation as the seating was full and they kept dishing out plate after plate of good looking food. First time here (I don't know why) and it will not be my last.

The best sushi in the Midwest, the coolest decor, and the sweetest, friendliest staff! My husband and I are super picky about eating out, but we adore Ginko! It’s well worth the cost for the freshest, most delicious sushi! The service is excellent as well! You are left to enjoy your food in peace without being interrupted every 5 minutes, but if you need anything else, someone will be there immediately to assist you! It’s always an incredible treat and I cannot recommend it enough!

A wonderful experience, best sushi in CLE, intimate setting, get reservations, great service. It's amazing the staff do as much as they do in this small spot. We love sitting at the sushi bar. But all that at a cost so we save this spot for special occasions!

Excellent sushi. Definitely the best and most innovative I’ve had outside of Hawaii. My only knocks against the place would be that it is very expensive, and the small size of the restaurant does not lend itself to a great dining experience.

We have been long-time customers of Ginko and knew that we had to get there anyway we could on our first trip back to CLE from ATL in over a year and a half. It was everything we remembered and more. The food was incredible, the staff was amazing, and we felt safe and taken care of. 100% recommend to everyone!

Very pretty restaurant and great service but the menu has disintegrated compared to what I remember years ago. Not enough selection for sushi, it seems they try too hard to make it seem too elitist and care more about that than the wonderful sushi menu other places have such as blue sushi

It was terrible, our setting area was super cold/freezing. A large TABLE next to us was super loud and annoying. Could not hear my date talking to me. Service wasn’t good, didn’t check up, on our table, usually had to flagged him down

Soooo good. The quality of the fish was evident with every bite. We lived in Asia for 20 years so we are quite picky. Truly the best sushi in OH, hands down.

I have been to Dante several times and had been told by several friends that GINKO was worth visiting and they were right! The food was incredible and our server was excellent, very attentive and helpful with explanations/recommendations.

My only complaint was our seating/table. The restaurant is very small so I understand seating must be a constant restriction (especially with COVID potentially limiting the number of people that are allowed in), however, my girlfriend and I were sat at what I think is a "hot plate" table.

The table itself wasn't the problem, the hot plate was covered but the table is wedged into a space no wider than 2.5 ft., in the corner of the restaurant with a bench on one side so we were seated next to each other facing a wall the entire night. Again, the food and service were incredible but part of an expensive night out like that is the experience, I couldn't help but notice all the excitement going on at the sushi bar and it felt like we were jammed away in the corner. Kind of a let down to be honest.

It was especially frustrating because I had placed the reservation roughly a month in advance and the only available timeslot was 5:30pm (much earlier than I would have liked).

Overall, I would like to return but would specifically request that I be seated at the sushi bar.
