    Great food and selection. We split the octopus salad, ramen, and several rolls. More than enough food for 2 people. Specialty cocktails were very good. We had the sangria, OTC, and an old fashioned. Only thing that I would change was the music too loud, we had to shout to have a conversation. And the lights in the bar were very dim. I actually read the menu using the streetlights thru the window behind me. We checked out the speakeasy in the basement too. Very chill space.

    We loved our experience at Goma! Our waiter was excellent, the food was very good and we enjoyed our evening. The prices were the nicest surprise, everything was so reasonably priced. We will be returning customers, and would highly recommend this restaurant to others! Thank you Goma staff!!

    Sushi was okay. Other menu items that came to the table seemed way more impressive than the sushi. Restaurant was very cold. Very dim lighting which is fine I guess. Service was excellent. No complaints there.

    My girlfriend and I have been to Goma probably 5-10 times since it first opened. It’s a good date night option with excellent food. On this occasion, we were seated at a 2-too table near the door. With sub-freezing January temps, it was fairly uncomfortable every time the door was opened. We asked to be seated somewhere else, but no other option was available. The food and the service were solid - as always - which is where I find the value of the experience. The wine list is limited. Only 1 Pinot option, but 6 Cab alternatives - most over $100. I would value a more expansive wine list with more domestic and international options.

    We had a really great time at Goma. We were celebrating an anniversary and every single worker in the restaurant went out of their way to wish us a Happy Anniversary. It was so nice, plus they gave us celebratory champagne after dinner. The Sushi chef was amazing and made our experience interactive and even more wonderful. He made recommendations based on what we liked, didn't like and things we've never tried. We are very open when it comes to trying new things so that made it more fun! Would absolutely go back!

    Beautiful dining experience all-around! Service staff was proud to present some of the most artfully prepared cuisine our party had ever seen. And the flavors were phenomenal. If you’re considering the Gomakase tasting menu, don’t hesitate. Our out-of-town guests were impressed! The staff even tracked us down when we lost a set of keys. Very thoughtful. Will be back!

    I have heard a lot of hype around Goma and was excited to give it a try. I am a huge sushi lover and find it hard to find good spots here in Cleveland. If you’re coming for the sashimi/nigiri… this is the spot. I really enjoyed the toro and unagi that I had. The rolls were a little disappointing. The crunch spicy tuna roll had a huge dollop of spicy mayo on the top that took over the roll and the size of the crunchy rice bits on top were a little overwhelming. I prefer tempura crunch to their take. The Goma roll was a little flavorless. We also had the ramen which was ok. The green tea crème brûlée was so good and creative. I will definitely go back, but may need to try a few of their other dishes next time. Sadly, did not get any photos.

    The food was below average. Ginko is the sushi god restaurant of Cleveland, so this was really disappointing. They cooked the beef tenderloin passed well done. The sushi was fresh and very clean tasting but not unique in any way. The tamago came out with a weird grey tint but we still tasted it, and unfortunately, also not good. Like not edible not good. The tuna tartar was mind blowing. The tuna sashimi was just perfect. And the green veggie tempura was very good. I feel bad about this review but we had a pretty bad experience. The restaurant didn’t go without noticing that we didn’t eat a lot of the food bc they took things off the check(not our intention but appreciated).

    During the 1.5 years that Goma has been opened, I have enjoyed dinner there 20+ times and had an outstanding experience each and every time. The quality and variety of food offered--in a fine dining effort--is seldom matched by any restaurant. The tuna appetizer (on menu), sushi rolls, pork belly ramen...all are star dishes. Goma consistently produces top-notch food. Service is always very strong and the staff does an incredible job of creating a great dining experience, from start to finish. Dante created an amazing concept...basically Nobu-quality food in Cleveland, for a price that is much more desirable. Chef Lou is absolutely elite. Goma is consistently a Top 3 restaurant in all of Cleveland and I cannot recommend it enough. 5 stars!

    Overall it was good. Hip, trendy, loud, too crowded. We're just back from a week in Las Vegas, ehr the prices were similar, but the food was much better- both in variety and quality. Everything at Goma was good; nothing was amazing or exceptional. For our money, we'll go to Shuhei every time.
