The waiter's recommendations were all good, the food was delicious and came pretty quickly and the final bill was more than fair.

The food was reasonable however two of our party had an allergic reaction to the crab salad. Neither of them has ever had any allergic reactions to shellfish before which makes me question how fresh that particular dish was. Otherwise the sushi was good and reasonable value with quite large portions.

Took a day trip to Miami and wanted to get sushi. The sushi was great, was a little expensive, but the quality was really good. There was actually nobody else in the restaurant besides our party. So everything came quickly. Sushi came out one dish at a time. Don’t mind that, helps to pace ha. Overall, really enjoyed it and would recommend.

Great fresh Sushi. Good AYCE option. Nice staff. Pleasant but not elegant environment. Fried dishes not so good and clothes stunk of cooking oil upon departure.

When we arrived there wasn’t anyone there so we figured we’d be quick in and out. The menu online says hibachi steak, it was not. It was beef teriyaki. The food was only warm. We were there for an hour and a half and everything took very long. Our dinner came out before our soup and salad. We also asked if instead of white rice we can get fried rice and our waitress, who was sweet and beautiful but very slow paced and forgetful, told us it would be a little bit of an upcharge. When we got the bill the “little upcharge” was $7 and $5 which is not an upcharge it is full price. She brought our edemame twice, the second time being after the meal came. The restaurant was nice and in a great location but staff doesn’t really know what they’re doing.

The food was decent ... salad came without dressing and whenever we asked our server a question she gave very rude short answers. I believe she was new but the service was terrible.

Great food and great ambiance. All you can eat doesn’t include everything on the menu, but has good options, definitely worth it. Not a full bar, only wine (sake) and beer drinks.

I’d like to sincerely thank you guys for a wonderful night last night. I had a friend in town from Paris and she had never had real, American fusion sushi before. Back home, sushi is just rice, seaweed, and whatever seafood meat is inside, so this was a welcome change.

When we came in, we were greeted by Eduardo, who was polite, friendly, and very engaging. He made us both feel so at home that I forgot this was my first time ever visiting Kone after hearing about it so much. From the moment we got our menus, Eduardo did everything he could to help us understand meal choices.

All in all, Eduardo was awesome. He was kind, hospitable, and he definitely helped make my beloved friend Injéh feel and know something she never did before—amazing sushi.

I can’t wait to come back next time.

I had seen the positive reviews on Open Table, so was encouraged to try, on a business trip. Original waiter got my order wrong twice. Each time they brought out the wrong food, mixing up the request - and it wasn't complicated. Food was ok.

Won't return / recommend.

Not good place for sushi. Whenever there is an option for all you can eat in a sushi place. It is a sign for mediocre food.

Decent food at reasonable price but Waiter with poor manners

We were craving for some Sushi last week. As usual, my wife relied on me to pick a good place for our date night. After some reliable research, I selected Kone Sushi in the downtown area of Miami.
Overall, it might be a decent place for lunch or for takeout but not for formal dinner.
We had the crunchy monster, rock shrimp, spicy Edaname and a miso soup to start. Subsequently, we ordered the Unagi special along with the Sashimi platter. For the 1st time EVER, we were insulted by the waiter (Ivan) who bluntly told us: “Oh boy, you were hungry”. Later on, we tried to be politically correct by telling him that it was not appropriate to make a such statement. As if he didn’t get it, he repeated the same stupid words again. He didn’t see anything abnormal with his statement. That waiter needs some serious training. This is the 1st time I write a bad review about a waiter because we were really offended.
With a poor ventilation system and unprofessional staff, I quickly realized why the restaurant was virtually empty on a Friday evening why the Italian restaurant just a few doors down the street was packed.
Would we go back? May be for a quick lunch but definitely not for dinner.

Service is regular to bad. Everytime we asked for a beer it took more than 10 min to be served. Restaurant was not busy at all, the owners were there, but something was going on between the managers and the staff. Food was good, fresh and authentic and didn't take too long to be served. They speak english, spanish and portuguese, wich is a plus. The place is not as spacious as other downtown restaurants, but you can choose to eat inside or outside (sidewalk tables).

Charging almost the same price for kids (80% of an adult) is an absurd! Food is just ok.

I had tickets to the Bocelli concert at the AA Arena. It was a Valentines Day surprise for my fiance. I made a reservation at Kone Sushi because both my fiance and myself love sushi. I received an email confirmation. I was driving from Palm Beach to the restaurant. About 50 miles into my trip they called me on my cell phone to inform me that the restaurant is closed and has been under renovations and they cannot honor my reservation. You don't want to know how furious I was. Try to find a restaurant on Valentines day the last minute near the venue you are going to that is expecting 30,000 people to show up. Why would they accept a reservation knowing full well that they could not accommodate any guests. Needless to say I will NEVER, NEVER, go there. Nor would I use Open Table for any more reservations. I wrote the book, "The Depersonalization of Corporate America." This is a perfect example of how technology can screw up a perfect evening.

We ate here during a recent visit to Miami. We wanted a quick but good sit down Sushi restaurant during our last night in town. The sushi rolls were tasty and well priced and the service was fast. A great casual place to go for sushi.
