Best sushi I have ever had. If you're lucky to sit in the back room you also get to see the chefs at work for Ginko. Waiter was phenomenal and gave the best recommendations

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 quite expensive, but well worth it. Took my girlfriend and we tried a little of everything. By far the best sushi I have had in Ohio.

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.

Our server was exceptional! She was so knowledgeable, friendly and kind. We really enjoyed our time with her! The food was also incredible as well. We did the tasting menus and both were phenomenal.

Our overall dining experience was amazing. Thank you for the lovely evening!

Ginko is undoubtedly one of the most atmospheric, outstandingly delicious sushi spots in Cleveland. The phenomenal service is only matched by its consistency in expertly crafted concoctions of culinary cunningness. Their specialty pieces are worth it alone.

Good sushi. Good drinks. In addition to the bar downstairs they have some seating upstairs in Dante that's nice for a more intimate date. Loud rap music with F bombs seemed a little out of place but they're trying to be hip I guess??

We loved it. This was our second time going, first time since COVID. They had plexiglass between the tables and guests had masks on when they left their tables. Felt safe and organized. The nigiri was so delicious, and we loved the unique chef specials. Staff was professional, but also very warm. Helen was our server, and she was genuine and efficient. I’d put a note in Opentable when I made the reservation that it was my husband’s bday, and I’d completely forgot I’d written that. Staff surprised him w a candle and dessert, even though I never even mentioned it. Food and staff are perfect.
