    Our waitress saw that it was my husband’s birthday and brought out birthday ice cream without requesting it. The service was great and our waitress was kind. The tables are close to each other but the overall atmosphere is comfortable. We chose this place to celebrate because their food is so good and one of our Erie favorites!

    Made reservations online for four. When we arrived, they acted like we had not made reservations, but did seat us rather quickly after clearing a table. Food was outstanding and our waitress was very good. Thought prices were a little steep for Erie, but things are more expensive lately. The one negative is how loud it is inside of the restaurant. Definitely would return for a special occasion.

    Food was delicious, as usual, at Samurai Sushi. Very happy they now have a license for wine. The only detraction was that a large party came in and the room became quite loud, too loud for my friend with hearing aids. Fortunately we were almost done and could wrap it up and head out. I had the Chirashi Sushi and it was excellent. My friend had the salmon from the hibachi and quite enjoyed it.

    excellent quality of food with appropriate portions and beautiful preparation - service was badly lacking in comparison - multiple tables were sat after we were, and received meals and drinks before us - understandable if this was due to being packed, but there were more open tables inside than occupied. will order takeout in the future because the fish and food was just that good!

    Our experiences here have always been great. However, we didn't see anywhere online that the Ramen Tuesday was ONLY in the winter. We showed up for Ramen and were told it's seasonal. But other than that, the food and service is always exceptional :)

    The food was good, would have been much better if we all got our food at the same time. We received 2 entrees while our 3rd guest had to wait 30 min for there’s. We respectfully waited for our guest to receive there food for us to start as well. The atmosphere was really nice, but overall experience wasn’t the best.

    Delicious and the service (I believe our server was Mike) was outstanding. The only downside is the size of the restaurant is small and there’s nothing to catch the noise so even a crowd of 30 people sounds like you’re at the club.

    I took my daughter out for sushi while visiting her in Erie. Cassandra was our waitress and she did a great job. She was attentive to our needs without interrupting us unnecessarily. The sushi was excellent. We had the last samurai roll, kamakazi roll, California roll, salom sushi and tuna sushi. The tuna was a deep red and melted in my mouth. Get the miso soup instead of the salad.
