    Nicely decorated. But the minute with enter the restaurant a weird smell came through, like wet dog. The menu is very small and the signature rolls are very expensive. So is the Sake. In Overall two of us had a bottle of Sake, 3 apps, 4 signature rolls, 3 pieces of nigiri. The Toro and Uni nigiri was mediocre for $18 a piece. I can barely see the Uni. Total was $250 including 20% tip. The service was very good!! I would say is above average for Florida sushi. Yes, no cream cheese please.

    Over all food and service was good. Food comes out quick, but we were made aware of that when we sat down so it was not a surprise and I don't feel like we were rushed. I would just order and set my own pace next time. Good stuff... Would go back

    Great first visit, we sampled several items on the menu, our sever was very knowledgeable and friendly! The Toro spoons were outstanding, maybe a little too much truffle soy to enjoy the toro but it was easily poured off! Can't wait to head back in the fall and checkout the upstairs to the outside deck! Great location, just across from the Jax Beach Pier! Cheers!

    We ordered A LOT of food. The nigiri was fresh. Unagi (bbq eel) was thin and a little too charred for my liking. The waygu needed course sea salt and to me was not worth $30/oz. I would rather eat at Cowford for those prices. All of the fried things were good. The chicken wings and pork belly wraps were the best things we ate. The sushi rolls were not anything special. Honestly, I would have been more satisfied with sushi at a local sushi joint. The flavors on most dishes were seriously lacking. Nothing really wowed us and for that I won’t be returning.

    Overpriced! Dim Sum is simply fried dumplings. Half of the sushi rolls are shrimp tempura. The nigiri and sashimi are just ok.

We sat at the sushi counter which was an even better experience of watching them make all the rolls. Will be back again 100%.

    Overall the experience was fabulous, food was great and the waitress did a good job. But it was a very different experience than I anticipated. The space is so hectic and there’s so little space to move around. I was expecting a more elevated experience. This place definitely has a beach vibe.
