Sushi

Saito – Sushi, Steak and Cocktails features world-class sushi, fresh cut steaks and craft cocktails in downtown Atlanta.

The downtown restaurant offers Pacific regional influence that truly inspires Sushi Master Chef Saito as he utilizes fresh tropical fruits, balancing delicately with the freshest fish flown in daily to create magical rolls, sashimi that melts in your mouth, and other inspired dishes. His partners have also developed an equally inspired beverage program, utilizing techniques from next door at Red Phone Booth and traditional Japanese ingredients such as shiso and yuzu. Rare Japanese whisky is showcased and served over double reverse osmosis ice pressed into a sphere from a Taisin ice mold.

For party of 5 or More please call us at 6787320553

    Gavin the GM was great. Our daughter has a peanut allergy and he made sure she was taken care of. Our server Jenifer ( she is from Macon Ga ) was the best and of Saito came by the table and talked and even bussed the table. Can’t wait until the next time

    The weather was perfect and the outdoor seating was the best part of the evening. (Although very loud). Our server was very sweet but overwhelmed. She told us she was the only server who showed up that day. Our cocktails were very average at best. Ceviche was good- various fish- a little heavy on onion but otherwise decent. My daughter ordered the tuna poke and was satisfied. Very good taste and good size portion. The sushi was very disappointing. We ordered a spider roll. It was the worst spider roll I have ever gotten anywhere. It was greasy, falling apart and overcooked. I asked for wasabi and soy sauce and it never arrived. The edamame was a tiny portion but same as every other restaurant. Again- our server was kind and knowledgeable but service was lacking. Atmosphere was nice.

    We enjoyed a perfect spring evening on the balcony with food that was ALMOST too beautiful to eat, but thankfully it was just as satisfying to the tummy as it was to the eyes! Truly phenomenal service, both from our waitress (Charli) as well as the owner, and the atmosphere, both inside and on the balcony, was simply exquisite. We look forward to coming back the next time we are in town!

    Expected it to be a little more authentic. The sushi quality was mediocre at best and everything was swimming in way too much sauce. Descriptions on the menu didn't match what came out. Less is more- the dishes were overdone in a way that made them bad.

    My date and I had a wonderful evening visiting here. The food was really good the Sake was even better (it was my first time trying Sake). Our waitress, the host, the manager, and Master Chef Saito all spoke to us kindly, made sure we were comfortable and taken care of. The LoFi type of music and blue stained glass ceiling just added to the elegant aesthetic of the entire restaurant. I would love to visit again. 10/10 stars for me 💜. Thank you!

    This place is amazing. Much smaller than you would think. The owner greets you and comes around to make sure everything is good. Sushi menu is not overwhelming... highly recommend the Oh My God roll. It lives up to the name. We are in Atlanta 4 times a year for business, and we will most definitely be repeat customers.

    I wish I could add some context to the “poor service” because our server was great, the lad just didn’t stand a chance due to the fact we had to wait about an hour over our reservation time because table didn’t turnover timely.

    Overall, I wasn’t completely disappointed as this was not the worse meal ever, but I wasn’t impressed at all given the hype of this place opening. The sushi rice was over cooked and over dressed and just made for a mushy mess of a roll. The beef tataki was sliced entirely too thick. I’ve had thinner cheeseburgers to be frank. It was cut so thick, there was gristle in a few pieces, but it was well marinated and flavorful if I had to give it anything. The cocktail options were limited and weak except for the old fashioned. The bright spot was our waitress. She was super kind, attentive and informative. I could tell she was striving for a good experience. The extra star is for her.

    The food was good, nothing super exciting. Service was bad. Our server literally harassed us every five minutes, not in the good way. He was super pushy, to the point I felt thrown out of the restaurant. The place was nearly empty so no I couldn’t understand his attitude. At the end I will not recommend.
