The appetizers were fine, but the sushi was average at best. We even order the rolls that were rated highly on OpenTable, but they were average as well. Probably won’t be back

Attentive and amazing service! Sushi was phenomenal, and portions were perfect. Our waitress surprised us with complimentary ice cream and 2 shots to celebrate our anniversary, and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thank you!

Wonderful quality of sushi, everything is always so fresh and like how sushi should taste. Went to celebrate my birthday with my wife. It was lovely. They even printed “happy birthday” on the menu and gave us a nice little dessert.

Came here to celebrate two of my friends’ birthday and the staff at Jellyfish made it such a memorable night! Thy CUSTOM PRINTED menus with their names on it and brought out complimentary desserts with candles and shots. Thy truly went above and beyond and made us feel so special. Service and food were both fantastic and the ambiance is modern, chic, and very cool. Will definitely be back!

The sushi was delicious as always. Our server was the best we've had at Jellyfish (bowing and all) and the water boy was constantly filling our glasses. My only complaint is we waited 1/2 hr from ordering to get our sushi which seemed too long and certainly longer than we've waited in the past.

Nice sushi place. Definitely worth a visit. Some of the seating is a little close. My date and I actually decided to sit at the bar bc they tried to squeeze us in and it was a little too close.

I don't know if it was just particularly busy the Saturday night that we tried to go but it was very clear that the hostess and staff was not prepared for the amount of people. While having a reservation, we had to wait about 30 minutes before being shown basically a little kids table. We declined the table and left soon after. Maybe the food is good, wouldn't know, but everything was about the restaurant leaves a lot to be desired.

It took over 30 minutes for a waiter to ask about our drink order. The service was horrible. Food was fine, but overpriced for what it was.

Went to Jellyfish for restaurant week. Decor and ambiance was decent, ordered drinks with one server and a different server delivered them. This server assumed wrong about which drink belonged to which patron. A different server takes our food order. Once we finished our sushi rolls, one of which was rolled poorly and fell apart once picked up, the bus boy cleared our table as if we were done eating. A different server from the previous three delivered our entrees, which were both wrong. And yet another server delivered our dessert, which the plate seemed confused in and of itself (sorbet and cinnamon apples?). The restaurant didn't seem nearly that busy, or large enough to have 5 different people touch our table, on top of the fact that our food order was wrong, on top of the fact that we were never asked if we wanted another round of drinks. We felt rushed, under appreciated, and like the staff didn't care. I normally would have said something in the moment to one of the servers, but I honestly just wanted to leave immediately after eating. I will not recommend this restaurant to anyone else.

A nice mix of fine dining and quasi-hipster. The DJ next to the bar, with no dance floor is a bit bizarre for a restaurant. Eclectic, great people watching, excellent cocktails. A great place to sit at the bar and mingle.

This restaurant was more trendy than i expected. It had a great atmosphere with good energy and interesting people. The main course is sushi. My date and I enjoy sushi frequently and found this place to be exceptional. The drinks were a bit sugary for our taste, but this was definitely offset by the quality of the sushi. I recommend the Lobster Mango Roll. I have never had lobster in a maki roll and i'm not sure why. They cook crab for them, why not lobster. It was delicious. I can't think of one item we ordered that was not delicious. Also, the service was very good and responsive. Overall, I recommend this place for dates and meeting up with friends.
