The food was great quality and freshly made. Service was fast and well timed. Atmosphere was bright and festive for the coming holidays and the pricing makes sense for the over all experience and quality. Definitely recommend. Much appreciated!

Our food took thirty minutes to arrive after being ordered, which we understood since it was busy. However, every dish we received was cold, and seemed like it had been sitting ready for those thirty minutes. We had to leave without eating because the food quality was so poor. Very disappointing.

There were 7 of us and is supposed to be all you can eat, but we were not able to order any more from the tablet. Our server seemed to disappear even thought there was no uneaten food on the table. A little disappointing.

The food was pretty good for the most part. One dish had a hair in it and the manager blamed the supplier and didn't apologize. The service was really bad. No smiling, not very attentive, no communication at all. At the end when we paid our bill not a thank you, just walked away. I've been there once before and it was fine, but this was exceptionally bad. I wouldn't go back at this point, there are too many other options in the area.

I have been there twice in the last few months and the service seems to just get worse. This time in particular we were enjoying our meal only to have both our waitresses repeatedly asking us if we wanted our dessert and bill even though we hadn’t received some of what we already ordered. We felt rushed to get our bills and when we did pay our waitress asked us if there were any problems and pointed at our receipts saying we hadn’t tipped. We tried to explain to her that we were leaving the cash in our hands as a tip but after how rude she was to us basically telling us to tip her we thoughtfully declined. I called the manager afterwards just to let him know our experience and he basically told us that his waitress is to blame and rushed us off the phone and hung up. Overall there are way better places to get sushi then here. Especially when it comes to services you would receive better service anywhere else!

This was our second visit and it was just as good the 2nd time. The i-pad ordering is such a novelty and kinda fun too. Service was slow on our 2nd visit which was puzzling as it was not crowded. But the wait staff is friendly and helpful with the dishes. Plan to go again.

Love Tatemono in Whitby. Go there quite often and is one of my favorites. All you can eat sushi is awesome and price is good. Spider and red dragon rolls are really tasty. Good customer service all around. One of my go to places.

Getting a table can be a hassle, there rarely seems to be a hostess handling guests as they come in and build up in the small corner. But once you're seated it's a quality experience.

They really need to turn down the music.. It was way too annoying! And they need to pay more attention to the orders being placed... Missed 3 of our items and when we advised of it, there was no apology.

Had to order dessert directly with server as the iPad ordering system was turned off or timed out while chatting and catching up with friends. No issue, just odd.

The food was good and promptly delivered to the table. There was a bit of a delay waiting for the wait staff to complete the order on the iPad, but Friday night is busy, so it's not unexpected. The menu has great variety and most of it is fantastically delicious. The tables are adequately spaced apart such that there was space for a fairly bulky stroller without blocking the walking area.

This was the second time eating at Tatemono. The first time the food was good (nothing spectacular) but we decided to go a second time because it was close to our friend's home (another couple who joined us) and we four all enjoy sushi/Japanese food. The quality of most dishes this time was fair to good and dishes came surprisingly quickly. However, the special rolls were huge and sloppily put together, as if the chef was new to Japanese cuisine and did not have the experienced touch to make tight, elegant rolls. They fell apart even as they were brought to the table and were about 4 times larger than what we've seen at most Japanese restaurants. The seafood (sushi) and seafood in the hand rolls did not taste 'off', but it also did not have the clean, pure taste of extremely fresh seafood. Really, the quality and presentation were inferior to what one can get in the deli counter at grocery stores! Even the steamed edamame were limp, as though they'd been sitting for some time before being served (or possibly re-heated many times). We had some non-Japanese dishes, which also were sloppily cooked - the shrimp dumplings (dim sum style) conglomerated into one mass of chewy, overcooked rice wrappers with small shrimp interspersed within the mass. Even something as basic as green tea was poorly made - the water was tepid rather than hot, so a potentially refreshing brew - was not. So it was a very, very mediocre meal - on a night that was not especially busy (so no excuse there) - and my partner and I concluded we will not be back.

I come here a few times a year for my AYCE fix. The options are limited at lunch for the price, but dinner is fantastic. If you let them know about your need for gluten-free they can accommodate it fairly well, though many menu items beyond sushi/sashimi/rolls will be off-limits.
