Great place. Absolutely outstanding sushi! It's a little pricey but it is worth it. There are many restaurants charging similar prices, but the food is no where to the level of Maru. The rolls were so fresh tasting. The plating was amazing. Just really impressed. It wasnt an overly asian themed place, not that it would have been a bad thing, it wasnt what I imagined it would look like compared to other sushi type restaurants...more modern I guess I'm trying to say. Will definitely be coming back.

Birthday dinner. Everything was lovely, except there were a lot of fruit flies in the dining area. Surprising for winter and quite unpleasant for us and other diners to seat them away.

We had a bonus night because both our kids were at friend's house! Woo hoo!
Our server was really nice and helpful.
She was very knowledgeable about how our GF good needed to be ordered. Made an online reservation early in the day - only 5:30 and 7:30 were left, so we took 7:30. We got right in and there was a line at the door. Our food was really good. We were squeezed in a table between two other tables. So it was really tight. We almost felt like we were with the tables on each side of us.
My husband really liked his sushi and I always order Rio Grande mexican sushi, which is always good!
My salad was also really good.
Overall fun night out!!

Fabulous food/sushi and great service. Prices were decent, reservation process was easy to navigate for a swamped evening. The only issue is that the space is very tight especially on a busy night. We will go back very soon!

Food was great. Service was a tad slow, but it was extremely busy. The only complaint would be that it felt very crowded and cramped in there. Our booth was even cramped. The seats were too close to the table. Other than that, we had a great dinner!

Great service as always and the food was great as well. I have never been disappointed with a trip to Maru and this was no different. The crab Rangoon dip was perfect!

We had 4 and a baby carrier. The restaurant was packed!!! They were able to seat us within 5 minutes though and we could pick which 4 top to see which would fit the baby carrier better. Service was great and food was fresh and delicious!

Fiod was very good, as usual. Service was particularly slow and it wasn’t that crowded. Maybe they were understaffed, hard to say.

Pretty busy in there since it’s so close to the holidays. Our server was newer so she had a few slip ups but overall, everything was great! Food was phenomenal as always.

Good experience in general. We were seating at a two-top directly next to another couple. We basically felt like we were sitting at a table with them. Very uncomfortable. Sushi was good, but not outstanding.

Very substandard service and tables around us also getting antsy we waited more than thirty minutes and no one greeted us. No one even brought water. We had been there so long that the hostess thought we had eaten even though we hadn’t even been offered a drink.

I had booked this for a special occasion and left because the service was mortifying

We had a lovely evening at Maru in Historic Fairmount Square Neighbourhood! The food was perfect and our server (I can't remember her name!) was intelligent with an awesome sense of humour! I love the personal touch that we always receive at Maru :-)

My son and I ordered firecracker shrimp, edamame, four different rolls and the matcha creme brûlée and chocolate truffle desserts. Edamame are edamame wherever you go. But the appetizers, rolls and desserts were unique, beautifully presented and most appetizing. Two rolls apiece is pushing it, but we had never been there before and wanted to get the full experience. We loved it! It was one of those partially researched, partially random choices that makes great travel memories.

It was a big mixup in our checks. We had to sit there for 30 minutes waiting for them to figure it out. We felt it would’ve been good customer service to take a dessert off our bill or offer a gift card or something but they made no attempt to improve the customer experience for us. We are a little disappointed in that, but the food is always awesome

We love Maru. Friday night’s staff seemed a little off their game. Service was slow but the food was delicious as always.
