    The atmosphere is very "instagram worthy." However, that is the only draw to this place. The hot saki comes in the smallest carafe and was not hot at all. Tasted very cheap. The other cocktails were weak and full of sugar. The food was hit and miss with every other dish tasting quite bland. And since there is no parking, be prepared to pay $10+ just to eat here.

    Food and service were good a bit pricey. The ambiance was horrible. Loud, extremely dark could not see what you were eating and a bunch of drunk kids and old dudes trying to pick up those kids. Overall not sure I would try again for dinner.

    I was expecting a little bit more out of this restaurant based on the prices, reviews, etc. The Sea Bass was over cooked & a little chewy. For $42 you’d think it would be perfect. We also ordered the sea scallops, got three medium sized ones & enough baked polenta to feed a horse. They should focus on giving you more sea scallops and less filler food. Presentation was nicely done but that doesn’t account for much when the food isn’t that good. The cocktails were so-so, not to mention we had to wait an extremely long time for one of the drinks. They had plenty of staff to get the job done and everyone seemed to be doing a good job so you can’t make excuses for being busy and our party was only 3. The one very positive upside for Haiku was the food comes out really fast. If the food was better, I would’ve been much more pleased.

    Haiku was amazing! I’ve been wanting to go for a long time and I finally did and I am so glad. My new hotspot in Tampa! It was my best friends birthday and it was a night to remember. The sushi was amazing the Shishido peppers were amazing! I will definitely be back! 6 stars!

    Sat outside. Service was good-Justin was very welcoming. Outdoor seating was drab & dusty. Maybe it was the faux plastic plant decor. My menu was full of dried food. I returned it to server. Sushi presentation was nice but not very tasty. Rather expensive too. Although I made reservations for outside we asked to sit inside; there were only 3 other tables being used at circa 5:00. The hostess told us we could sit for 1 hr & 10 min inside. Not sure why she qualified this. I would think that as long as we are eating & drinking we should be welcome. Not sure if she qualifies this to all guests. This was not a welcoming comment. Anyway we sat outside so our meal wouldn’t be interrupted if we took more than an hour. This was ok bc I think the inside restaurant did have an odor & it was very dark inside. When we left -circa an hour later the indoor restaurant wasn’t any more crowded from what I observed. We’d never return.

    Some dishes were great (mango tuna stack and shishito peppers), others just okay (baked crab roll was just warmed crab, not all baked; pork bao buns were dry and lacked punch; volcano role was so-so). Service was good and appreciated that our sever spaced out all of our dishes so that they came at different times (we ordered a lot for the table). Half-off wine on Wednesdays was great, and our cocktails were inventive, too. Ambience was okay but the lighting made it REALLY hard to see menus and quite a few people were turning on phone lights or holding up the electric candles on tables to view.

    The ambience was great however the service was terrible. We were called and texted at least three times to move our reservation early due to them closing early that night because of low volume. I understand that, However I’m not sure How that concerns me. I made the reservation at 9:30 and told them we were driving in and would not make an earlier time. It felt we were being rushed to come in. Why allow guests to make reservations at 9:30 then? We arrived at 9:35, seated and then not greeted until I asked for a manager around 9:45. Manager was not very understanding and said the hostess only called one time. I was bombarded with calls and texts saying to come in early as early as 7pm. Our server was very kind, but overall poor planning from the restaurant and manager

    I expected a more extensive sushi menu, there were 10 rolls, all specialty which I don’t mind but for my younger child he likes the simpler Mexican roll and that was not an option. The service was a little slow and the ambiance outside does not compare to the inside. The kids got the ramen and was not impressed and my husband got the pork belly fried rice which looked like a Hispanic dirty rice dish. I am Asian so maybe I expected more. I ordered the hot sake and the tokkuri was small (I’m used to a pot of sake at my usual sushi place) and the first tokkuri was luke warm. I had to ask for it to be hotter. The restaurant wasn’t terrible but doesn’t live up to the hype of the decor.

    Super cute. Instagrammable spot. The food was great! There was a live band and they were awesome. Service was good. The only reason I didn’t give five stars was because the drinks were bitter. It took me three different drinks to get a good tasting drink. Other than that I highly recommend!
