    When we arrived there was a bit of a wait but after seated we were greeted quickly and served promptly. The food was amazing I got two sushi rolls (spicy tuna and a volcano roll). If you in the Tampa area make a reservation and check them out.

    Service was just awful. Server never asked us how everything was. Only came over when was called for twice to order additional drinks. House roll was wonderful. Pork belly was undercooked and awful. ‘Seaweed Salad’ had at best 2 tablespoons of seaweed on top of salad greens with an Italian dressing. Not a true seaweed salad and not worth it. Sushi rolls were good. Over ambiance great, service awful, food fair. For this price there is far better sushi in tampa. If this place doesn’t up its game and make changes it will be closed soon

    I've been looking forward to trying Haiku since it opened and finally decided to do so yesterday. #1, the place is beautiful. Very "Instagram worthy". We went during happy hour, but did not try any happy hour offerings, except a couple of cocktails. I tried a cocktail with scotch and prosecco... weird, but strangely good. My husband had an old fashioned was perfect. Not too sweet. We ordered the grilled octopus, wagyu tartare, and two sushi rolls. The grilled octopus was fantastic. I fancy myself a bit of a grilled octopus connoisseur and theirs is among the best. Everything else left something to be desired. The wagyu tartare presentation was very cool. It was brought to the table with a smoke-filled cloche over it, which was cool when lifted and gave the beef a nice smoke flavor, but that was where the intrigue ended. The beef itself, good, but it is served on, what I can only describe as a thick sticky rice hashbrown. Meh. If it was served with a different vehicle, it could be a winner. Both sushi rolls, just "meh". One was the least flavorful roll I've ever had, the other, good but too saucy. It's so dark inside that many people had to use their phone flashlight to see the menu, but it's alright, lends to the vibe. The service was great. There were a bunch of people working on a Friday evening and our server was able to be super attentive. There is a nice patio outside. Overall, maybe a cool place for happy hour eats, but I probably wouldn't go back for more than a drink and the octopus, and that's only if I was in the area for a different reason.

    Had dinner here yesterday. Started off well - the appetizers we ordered were very good and arrived at a good pace. We then waited over an hour after appetizers for our entrees to arrive, and when they did, they were pretty terrible. The truffle tempura tuna roll - a $26 roll - was completely over cooked and dry. The citrus salmon roll had the thinnest pieces of salmon I have ever seen. It was clear our entree order was lost in the shuffle, which no one acknowledged. People who sat after us were finished and long gone. By that point, we just asked for the check, ate what was edible and left. I never leave negative reviews, but wow, this was just a huge miss!

    Lychee martini, Old Fashioned for drinks, both swung toward the sweet side of the palate. Fried gyoza was decent, house roll was great. (All ordered off the happy hour menu 4-6pm). Entrees were beef short ribs with wasabi mashed potatoes and broccolini. Short ribs were well prepared, tender, flavorful and comforting. Wasabi mashed potatoes had intermittent strong punches of heat, not consistent in taste. Broccolini was still a bit crisp which was to my liking, not limp and soggy. Also had umami grill salmon over a bed of black rice, onion, edamame, and pork belly, with cilantro. Salmon piece was quite thick and I was initially concerned about whether it would be over cooked and dry, or undercooked in the center. No need to worry, it was done perfectly. Slight crust on the outer edges, moist and tender inside,flaking apart easily. Sadly the menagerie of ingredients underneath was less than desirable. May have been better served as sides on their own, as they were just a jumbled concoction that was not enjoyable. Service was good, regular check ins, dishes cleared in a timely manner. Volume wasn’t an issue, despite multiple prior reviews to the contrary. Prices were a bit high, but the happy hour offerings eased some of the sting. Would come again, reservations recommended.

    Took the family out after going to The Tampa Theater for a school event. Very nice ambiance and decor. Served by Samuel, who took very good care of us. The food was very good. Kids had the steamed gyoza and kids fried rice. My wife and myself had the Banging Shrimp and the Mango Tuna Stack. Also shared a roll. A bit pricey, even for sushi standards. Overall, we had a good time. Definitely a good place to get the night started and meet with friends. As always, you're welcome.

    Made a reservation weeks in advanced, showed up and check in early for out 7:15 reservation and did not get seated until at least 8:30… over an hour past our reservation time. Not sure the point of a reservation if it is just going to be treated like a waitlist upon arrival. Food was great but not sure it is worth waiting 1+ hour for.

    Had a 6:45 reservation showed up on time and weren’t seated until 7:40. Then the table we were sat at wait staff was running by and knocked over our drinks. The drinks even though they remade them came back and were made with the wrong alcohol. Was never given chop sticks after asking for them twice.

    Had a reservation for 6:15pm and waited to be seated until 6:35pm while multiple groups (two groups of 2 and two groups of 5+) came in and were sat before us without the hostess saying a word to us on the progress of our table that was being “wiped down.” I’ve worked in restaurants so understand a busy night but I would have loved more communication from the hostess regarding the status of our table or asking if we were okay sitting outside, which would have gotten us seated much sooner. Once sat, the food and server were great.

    We made reservations a month in advanced my cousins was coming to town who is a food blogger for NYE. Our server told us she " wasn't there today" when we first sat down to order drinks. She told me my drink wasn't going to be sweet and it tasted like juice. She brought us the wrong foods, so we didnt get to eat the same time. She never once asked us if we wanted another cocktail and it was New Years Eve Night..so you would have thought she would have been on top of it. At the end, I said I read on instagram we get complimentary champagne, she said " ok do you want it.?" You would have thought NYE we were excited to go somewhere with family in town, and our server would have had a better more enthusiastic attitude

    The food was good, the service was slow, and for some reason, they automatically charge a 20% tip with the option to add an additional tip. We typically tip 20% anyway so wasn't a big deal, but here's a heads-up for anyone else.

    Always love dining here however, we felt rushed, all our apps, drinks and dinner arrived within 5 mins of each other. We didn’t really get to enjoy the food as by the time we enjoyed a glass of our wine everything else was cold. The server was good just didn’t space out our order well. The dj was great but the music was so loud we had to shout to hear each other. A few notches down would have been ideal. Over all we love Haiku and frequent monthly

    Absolutely perfect! We were seated immediately upon arrival for our reservation. The service was spot-on. Our waitress was attentive and offered appropriate suggestions. The food was amazing! We dined on shareables: the tempura shrimp, pork gyoza, spicy cauliflower and lettuce wraps. Each one was served hot and fresh. Nothing ever sat on the pass long… if the wait staff was busy, the chef walked the food out. We can’t wait to return.
