Pubelly Sushi never disappoints!! It was my fourth time dining at this restaurant and the food is always suburb and service amazing. The sushi is the best I’ve ever had and worth the price. I highly recommend this restaurant to my family and friends.

We made the reservation, when we got there we are told that they didn’t have miami spice on Saturday. I was very disappointed but my boyfriend decided to stay and we ordered and payed full price. I was disappointed because they didn’t have any initiative to offer us anything considering it was their fault to promote something they didn’t have. The food is amazing but I was very disappointed

We were 7. The waitress told us that we should order 4-5 dishes for each of us, since the portions were really, really small and we should share. Food start to coming out... different dishes in different times, wrong orders, wrong quantities... We ordered a bunch of different dishes and the food was not good and most of the dishes really, really hot!!! Service was absolutely horrible!!! Then came the check. Extremely expensive and they add 20% service without letting us know. None of us are coming back.

This was our second time dining here and this time things were different and much better. The first time we had gone the location had just opened up so a lot of things that were off but this time it was a great experience. We loved their happy hour special from 4p-7p on Sunday. We had a ton of food, 2 drinks each and all for about $70 which here in Miami is inexpensive for eating out at a nice restaurant. Service was great, music was on point (hip-hop Sunday’s) and the food was very good!!! Highly recommend to try for happy hour. Great value!

I've been to Pubbelly Sushi Aventura a number of times and have always had a great experience. On this visit - the day before July 4th, so presumably holiday-related - the service was just terrible. The host couldn't be bothered with us when we arrived. It took 15 minutes for anyone to even welcome us (despite it not being particularly busy), provide us with water or take our drink order once we were seated. When we finally placed our food order, we had three different staff members confirm it with us and we still ended up getting charged for an extra roll we didn't order or receive (and didn't realize it until after we left). Probably won't return or recommend.

Food was decent, not terrible but not memorable. Service was absolutely atrocious. Server was slow to come initially, and the food runners had no idea which tables the food were supposed to go to, nor did they know the dish they were carrying (one guy was carrying some sort of wrap and said it was pork ribs). Save yourself a headache and avoid this place.

I had heard amazing things about this restaurant for months and finally went to give it a try. The service was outstanding and I was so excited to try the food. I found hair in TWO different dishes. We told the manager is a respectful way and he didn't seem phased by it. I felt the response from the manager was completely unacceptable. We sat around for a while waiting to hear back about what he was going to do about it. I didn't feel a sense of urgency and therefore we left very unhappy. Things happen and hair can be found in even the most upscale restaurants. But two hairs in different dishes is unacceptable. I am really turned off to this restaurant and don't want to come back. You have been warned.

Enjoyed it - excellent service and interesting flavors and choices. They accommodated my GF needs but they clearly need to have more and better ways to deal with food allergic customers.

Perhaps I will see a GF menu if I return with at least 10 items.

It took a while for a waiter to come to our table and then we were finally acknowledged but it was 2 waiters taking care of us but nonetheless, the sushi was outstanding and the ambiance was awesome. I cannot complain about the food, the quality and the cost of the sushi was reasonable and not overpriced. Certainly would go back.

Most importantly, service was bad. Ten minutes after we sat here comes the server. She kept apologizing. My friends food all came out in three pieces about 10 minutes before mine. These folks don’t work for that tip they include before the bill arrives.

Very innovative cuisine. Second time at this restaurant and enjoyed the food and surroundings. Would have liked our waiter to be more proactive by recommending different dishes given the unusual nature of some of the items. He seemed distracted and rushed at times on a busy Saturday night.

Our cocktails were missing the boba and my friend asked for spicy mayo on the side that was never brought to the table and we were then charged for. Our waitress was very helpful in the beginning and then kind of disappeared until we asked for the check. The food is great here but pretty pricey for what you’re getting in terms of quantity, quality & service. Second time going and don’t feel a need to return.
