    Must try if you like Authentic Japanese food! Great location if you're going to an event at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse or Casino. Will definitely be back!

    My wife and I were excited to try Goma for the first time to celebrate Valentine's Day. We are big fans of Ginko and Dante's, having lived in Tremont. Despite owning a business downtown, we had not yet had the opportunity to try Goma until Feb 14. We unfortunately had a pretty bad experience. Upon arrival, we were escorted to a corner in the basement. Was told by the next person we met, who poured water, to wait for our waitress to ask questions. We asked anyway for saki and was told the order would be processed. After about 10 minuntes, the person who would apparently be our waitress leaned into our corner of the room and said she heard we ordered saki and did we need anything else. She did not introduce herself. From that point forward, we were intermittently ignored by our wait staff. We had to wait extreme amounts of time for warm Saki to be delivered to our table, having to ask multiple times to followup on the order. We were told that there was no "warmer" in the basement, and that we had to wait for saki from upstairs. Throughout our over 1 hour at Goma, we were largely left alone. We did get our appetizers. We waited an exhorbitant amount of time for our sushi. At this point, we decided to cancel our order and return home. The waitress was nice, but clearly was brand new to the job. Her response was that she is trying her best but the restaurant is very busy due to the large crowd. We registered a complaint with the Maitre' d. He was unresponsive. I don't mind spending $200-$300 for dinner (have done so several times at Dante restaurants). Last week, my wife and I were at Marbleroom. The service was impeccable. Again, I don't mind spending the money when the experience is enjoyable. It looks like Goma, while it has a big space, was eager to take reservations but did not have adequate staffing to deliver the proper experience. Bigger is not always better.

    Just disappointing. Overall strong smell of fish when you walked in. That’s not a good sign. Good fish doesn’t smell. If you want shabu shabu you would have to reserve a larger table. This was not known when I booked. Never offered that option. Asked to be moved. Said not available already reserved. Needless to say one table remained empty the entire time we were there. Another was empty up until the last 5 minutes of our time when someone asked to be switched. They obliged. Food was ok, nothing great, disappointing for a Dante restaurant

    The food is amazing and craves for you to come back soon! Each visit makes me want to try something different. Our fave is the Tobanyaki! You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu! By far one of our favorite places for a dinner out.

    Usually go for a sit down dinner, but decided to stop before a Cavs game. Sat at the sushi bar this time. It was such a fun spot! Food is always fantastic. Split 3 Rolls and of course the Shishito peppers, which was the right amount of food as a light meal for 2. Service at the bar was great.

    First I want to say that our waiter was awesome. They seated us right by the door it was drafty and cold . We felt like we were being rushed everything came out really fast . What we wanted to be a nice relaxing dinner was over and done in a 1/2 hour not what I would expect from a so called upscale restaurant. We will not go back . But as I said in beginning waiter was a super nice guy he was best part of our experience

    Great food. We were there early in the evening so not much of a crowd or ambiance but the service was great and the sushi was delicious. Pretty much as good as you can find in Cleveland from my experience. A lot more options and upscale choices than just the standard tuna roll covered in spicy mayonnaise (which is hardly sushi).

    I don’t even live in Cleveland, I’m from Texas. We fly in and typically go straight to Goma for dinner. I typically come into town for about 7-10 days and we will go to Goma’s at least 5-7 times each trip. This is some of the best sushi I’ve had.

    The service was excellent. Our server Kevin did a fantastic job and took great care of us. The sushi was elite- the Pork Belly & Salmon Belly pressed sushi and the Zen Roll were among the best sushi items I’ve ever tried. Great dining experience. I highly recommend this spot.

    Visited primarily for the sushi and had a number of their specialty maki rolls. I can't complain about the quality but I found there signature rolls to be underwhelming and didn't care for the combo of ingredients in a number of them. I found them to either lack flavor or have odd texture combinations. The apps and desserts were good as were the fried noodles and the service was ok but felt a little stuffy. The vibe in this place feels like they're trying to hard to be fancy. In the end, I had buyer's remorse after a $200 bill for 4 people and feeling like I've enjoyed sushi much more for far less at other places.

    The food was okay but it took forever for our food to arrive. Our sashimi platter arrived almost 20 minutes after all of our other food. It should have been the first thing on the table but by the time it arrived we just wanted the check. Such a bummer since the sashimi was delicious. We were really excited to try Goma but after this meal we won’t be back.

    Sat at the sushi bar on a Friday night. Good vibe, excellent service, chefs were chatty & liked explaining what they were working on. Definitely try whatever the specials are. They had several that were all unique & were the star of our meal. Also excellent Crab Rangoon and the crème brule (which as spiced rum that night) was AMAZING!
