    Disappointed. Very pricey for food quality. We tried everything from a simple tuna poke bowl to the “Gomakase” chef special and very average.

    Worst food I’ve ever tasted in Cleveland and definitely not worth your time or money. The salmon sashimi appetizer was bland and did not taste fresh. The unagi sushi was terrible. The scallops were dry and the kale in the dish was overly salty. And finally the salmon tobanyaki was also very bland but the only edible thing out of all. The waiter was rude; when we mentioned that the kale was very salty he said “you should’ve said that 2 hours ago” which left us speechless. I was very disappointed especially that I had a good experience at previous dante restaurants. Definitely not coming back and will not recommend it to anyone!

    While some of the food was outstanding (foie gras unagi nigiri, tempura mushrooms, and pressed pork belly sushi) most of the sushi was middling. The experience of unique Japanese flavors is worth investigating but with the price, it’s more of a one time experience than a repeat event. The service is great if borderline too frequent. The atmosphere is great, but some what night club like. Overall, a good restaurant, but not somewhere we’d frequent.

    Hip atmosphere on the corner of E 4th and Prospect. The sushi is creatively presented and the service is superior. Large sake selection in addition to more traditional spirits. Highly recommend leaning into the server's selections and daily specials. Reservations ensure you're not in for a long wait. Even the bar is by reservation only. Conveniently located just steps away from the valet and a very walkable part of downtown.

    Oishi!!! Delicious! We sampled many items and when we definitely return will be re-ordering the Spicy "chips," even if the Pringles were replaced by shingles. The Yakisoba was also a huge win. Perfect portion for sharing. The pork belly was crispy and sweet and just fantastic. We also enjoyed the fatty tuna sashimi - one of our favorite cuts and impeccable here. The cocktails and drink list is extensive and we enjoyed our Spicy Negroni and a couple small bottles of sake. Don't let the menu confuse you. Amanda walked us through the menu and made great suggestions. She was awesome! Don't think in terms of courses. Just order and the food shows up to your table when it's ready, tapas style. it's pretty quick so when you're full stop ordering. But save room for the tempura brownie bites! Sayonara for now, Goma!

    This place is absolutely stunning, food is outstanding and the service is very attentive. Definitely not cheap but worth every dollar if you consider yourself a Sushi connoisseur. The Wagyu+King crab sushi is spectacular. We dropped $350 for a table of 4 before tip. Worth it for me.

    Slow service. Loud motorcycles and cars revving engines outside ruined the indoor outdoor open air ambiance. Food was mediocre and overpriced for Cleveland. Clientele were ultra casual for a hip place (gym shorts and sneakers). Thought this would be a cool, lounge atmosphere with high quality food. Disappointed

    My girlfriend and I went to celebrate my birthday. We have always loved Chef Dante’s work prior so we were excited to try Goma. Our reservations for two was at 5:15 PM. Look, I get it as someone that works in hospitality. Labor is short and trying to hire is damn near impossible. However, the we had to wait another 20 min before we even had menus. Only the cocktail menus. We waited even longer for our server. Only when I saw a manager I had asked for a menu. Once again, I’m in the industry and really hate I have to write this but I do not understand why even menus were not given upon seating. Look I hope everything works out with staffing but I don’t think we’re gonna come back

    The appetizer specials were amazing, the drinks were fine and the tempura brownie was surprisingly good. The duck main dish had no flavor and was quite disappointing. Way too expensive for a meal that was less than great.

    Was in town for a cavs game with a friend! Made a reservation and was sat right away. Server was efficient and friendly and the food was delicious. Not your average cheap sushi bar place though. It’s a bit expensive but you get what you pay for! Sushi was very fresh!! We got appetizers, nigiri and sushi rolls! Was son good we had to order two desserts! Will be back!

    My husband and I decided to try out Goma to celebrate our 4 year wedding anniversary and although I am happy a nice place has opened up in downtown, it was not all that it was hyped up to be. The sushi was good along with the wok style entree we chose to have, but everything else was underwhelming. We also stated on our reservation that we are celebrating a special occasion and the hostess even asked when I checked in but they didn’t do anything to honor our celebration. It was just okay and I am disappointed overall.

    Our second time there was a bit disappointing - the server rattled off the appetizer specials and did not mention the $$. So we were really shocked to find out that the mediocre appetizer we ended up getting (Toro/Uni tartar) was more expensive than all the entrees -$40! Totally not worth it. Also, our cut rolls were super skimpy on the fish - would never get those again. However, the $99 tasting was great and plenty to share. The noise level is almost uncomfortable - the 4 of us at the table were yelling at each other and were straining to hear. I hope management addresses these issues, because we loved our first experience very much.
