Food was excellent, very creative and presented well. We really enjoyed our visit and the food. We felt the service was exceptional and that our server was definitely above the norm. We were there for a birthday celebration and were delighted by our experience that evening.
Food and ambience are superior, but noise level makes it hard to hear even at a table for four located as far as possible from the speakers. Server was pleasant, but had little knowledge of gins or wines.
It was alright nothing that was great. Sushi wasn’t awesome.
Went there for New Years Eve dinner with my husband. Ordered the smaller boat for both of us and it was amazing. We even had plenty of food to take home and it was delicious. Staff is very nice too. Definitely recommend this place!
everything was great except the hostess was rude
Now my favorite sushi and Asian hangout. Great for large groups or just me and the wife. Great noodle soups and my favorite, the fantastic noodles with tuna add on. Love the veggie dishes. Best atmosphere. Always upbeat with just enough action and sounds.
The food was very good. Wish they would have had uni.
I was staying at the Hollander Hotel which is next door to Sake 23. I saw the restaurant out of the corner of my eye.....what a find. I had a great experience - good food, service and ambience. Loved it...
Fantastic Sushi...but the dumplings are worth the trip by themselves.always great service
Both the service and the food were excellent! Will definitely come back the next time we’re in town.
Not a good experience, unfortunately, though we had high hopes. Rude service and sub-par food. Many other choices nearby are far superior. Steer clear.
Would definitely go back and bring the family next time 😊!
Service, food, and location were top notch! Between the 6 of us there, we had sushi, apps, ramen, yakisoba noodles, fried rice, and a bento box. Everything tasted great! The only thing we didn't like was that the music was way too loud.
Great menu with lots of selections. Come hungry.
Perfect for pre-performance at the Palladium. Lots of choices on the menu, nicely done, friendly staff.
It was great! My wife and I would definitely go back there again! The people were so friendly!
We have dined at Saki 23 many times, both in the restaurant and takeout. We usually have amazing service and amazing food. This time the server took the three trips back and forth just to get our drink order for 5 people, he disappeared when two needed to order more beers, and one never got a refill on his coke. My sashimi came out beautifully, my Brussel sprouts were burned and the kimchi was subpar. Bourbon chicken fried rice was poorly made (this is a favorite of ours). 2 orders of gyoza came out beautifully as did the 2 bowls of ramen and snow mountain roll. This could have been an off night, as like I said we usually have amazing service. That being said, Saki 23 is still worth a try. The menu is great and their Saki list is long. They always carry my favorite bottle of wine.
Great place good food and interesting twists on the classics
Awesome food and service. Highly recommend going here!!!
Delicious sushi, edemame was uniquely taste
We were introduced to this restaurant about tow years ago and we love it for lunch and dinner.
Great intimate atmosphere. Beautiful decor. Food was fabulous!
Great food, great service. Can’t wait to go back!
I went in for a birthday dinner with friends, one of whom was vegetarian. She contacted the restaurant prior to make sure that there were vegetarian friendly options and they listed the ones and advised to let the server know. She was told that the miso ramen would be vegetarian friendly, but when she asked the server, the server said that there was fish in the broth. She was disappointed because of the limited options, that it what she wanted to order. My food was good and I would recommend as a cool spot to go, but not for vegetarian or vegan friends.
It was a quiet Monday evening in out of Season St. Petersburg so there we only a couple of occupied tables our entire meal. Service was outstanding with the food facilitator coming out of the kitchen to greet us and check on our gluten free diner. There was complimentary Miso Soup which I did not partake as is ordinarily so salty in many establishments. The other three diners raved about it. It was chuck full of mushrooms, veggies and tofu and they all agreed that it did not taste like the salty dishwater you get in many Asian restaurants. Our meal was superb. The Summer Roll was so fresh with shrimp and julienne of impeccably fresh veggies and plenty of fresh mint. Delicious. Some of us shared a very tasty pineapple fried rice and the kitchen accommodated us substituting chicken in place of the Spam listed on the menu. The entire meal was excellent, our server never missed a beat and Sake 23 remains high on our list for go to restaurants.
I was very disappointed to show up in advance of our 7:30 reservation, to be told by the hostess that we would be sat at a bar high top. I asked for a table, and she said that 20 minutes prior, someone called in for a party of 20-22, and she did’t know if there would be a server for us in the dining room.
Another woman then approached the hostess stand and offered to take our party of four to a booth. Steph proceeded to take great care of us. She was charming and patient with us as we chatted over the menus for 20 minutes before placing orders. She rescued the dinner!
I’ve hosted before - and clearly this one needs training.
It was perfect. The ambience was nice and the food was spectacular.
Drinks and food were amazing! Service was great as well. We will be back!
The food was great with interesting combinations/flavors. We did not have as good luck with the cocktails even though we did get a discount for happy hour.
Fantastic Sushi!!!! The dumplings are with the visit alone. Highly recommend...they wont disappoint. TSO stir fry....incredible. all accompanied by attentive service.
I liked the separation of spaces before the remodel. Sat at a table very open area removing some of the intimacy I had experienced previously.niw feels like every other restaurant I’ve been to.
Great food ! Great experience! Definitely returning!
Great place, great food!
Sushi was amazing, the ambiance of the restaurant was great!
We came during happy hour which made it very worth it with 1/2 drinks. If not drinks would be a little on the pricey side.
Great place to come for dinner or meet with a group of friends!!!
Will be back !
Great place. Food was good and prices were ok. It’s a good sushi place in the area. For aure will return
Our waitress was great! Very personable and responsive. The appetizers, drinks are deserts were good. The sushi was mediocre.
I requested a quite booth so it would be easy to talk with old friends and we were given the perfect place. It was easy to park and the food was great. The server, who is also an artist, was delightful. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
This was our second visit in two weeks and we loved the food just as much as when we first discovered Sake 23. Try the Brussel sprouts as we love them and a number of tables also ordered them as a shared plate. The Spring roll was excellent, very large, full and fresh with a delicious peanut sauce that we wanted to eat with a spoon. The Bento Box that two of had was as delicious as our previous visit. My husband had the yellow tail collar and said it was the best fish he has had in a long time. This is a very happy restaurant and all tables seemed to be having a good time.
Everything was great but they close at 11 now not 1
It was our first time to Sake 23 and the great experience started at the host station. We were greeted with a welcoming attitude and the rest of the evening went uphill. Our server was outstanding, understanding that we need time to catch up with our guest and she made no bones of saying I am here, don’t rush and rather than interrupt, you let me know when you need me. The food, ah the food. We shared pork belly buns and charred Brussel sprouts and knew we would continue to have good food. As none of us could make up our minds, we all had different customized Bento Boxes. I had chicken, my husband had beef and our guest had shrimp tempura. We delighted in the food and ate the entire portion. Fortunately we were with a guest who had as much joy of food as we do. Will we come back for another meal? We left a very upbeat, happy restaurant full, content and all asking, when are we going to eat here again?
Love this place. Sushi is excellent and fried rice is to die for.
