We ordered the miso soup to start. It was excellent. Also ordered crab and heat roll sushi. They were quite good . The dessert took some time so the server gave it to us as complimentary. A nice touch . Shows they care about their reputation

Excellent value at lunch with Bento Boxes. Server very helpful and it was nice sitting outside now that weather has cooled a bit. We have always eaten dinner, but lunch a great deal with lots of favorite tastes on plate.

Not as good as what the Lonely Planet said. Service was below average, most of the wines by the glass were not available. Food was good but nothing special!

Love this spot! The butter crab roll and the octopus (sauce in the side) are fantastic. Also like the small cans of saki they have and they pack a punch. Looking forward to coming back!

We ate inside because of the weather, bad decision as it was incredibly noisy. The music was blaring, the party seated next to us was also bothered by the noise level and music selection.
We sent back a chicken order because it was cold and was not to our liking. Otherwise, the food was delicious and our server was great!

The superior older sister to the Brickell City Center Pubbelly. The food is consistent and perfectly prepared. Being a sushi purist, I would not call this a typical sushi restaurant - yes there are raw selections - but generally this is well thought out interpretation of sushi that will satisfy even sushi haters. I know you are out there! Terrific selection of Saki. Order the bottle because the saki pours are small. Terrific cocktail menu for the non- saki drinkers around. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. The surprise this visit was their taco style pork rolls - excellent interpretation, and the dumplings - again excellent interpretations. Having been to the City Center 4x and the original Purdy spot 2x - it will always be the Purdy spot for me.

Our server literally knew EVERYTHING on the menu in great detail. We wanted to go to to our favorite spot in Hollywood go bistro, but since I’ve seen Pubbelly on Instagram 748583984 times we gave it a try and this is our new favorite. It’s just sooooo far from where we live. Worth every second of the drive though.

Oh man! We really wanted to give this place a great review, since we loved the original Pubbelly so much!

Waygu Tataki was so grisly, we had to spit some pieces out. When we mentioned this to the server, she said, “Was ALL of it that way?” She never offered to take it off the check.

Stick to the seafood if you go. They were out of all 1/2 bottles of dry saki. Server never offered us the option of ordering saki by the glass. We spent $200 and left hungry. Too many good sushi options in Miami to consider giving them a second chance.

Everything was really good, my whole “miami family” recomended this place, service is quick ! We were not dissapotinted. Rolls are great taste and creative. The only “bad” thing was at the end with the check when noticing supp. +2$ when the server did not warn us that the salmon that she was replacing instead of the kani (we warned her we did not eat shellfish) was a paying option. Really good place :)

After taking our order, the server said things would arrive as they were ready, which normally means small delays or a steady flow of dishes, but this was absurd. The two sushi entrees arrived after about 5 minutes (and, for the cost, were really bland), our appetizer arrived about 10 minutes after them, and then our rice arrived approximately 20 minutes after we had finished the rest of our meal. I tried to cancel the rice when it had been so long but the server would not allow it. I would not recommend this restaurant — very surprised to have found it on a “best of” list given the plainness of the “I am Salmon” roll and quality of service.
