    Sandfish has a great vibe, but is one of the pricier places in the Uptown Design District. As always the meal was amazing. Had the spiced edamame (not very spicy), the Venture roll, the Sandfish roll and regular nigori. The rolls are particularly tasty and well presented. Definitely a nice place for a special dinner.

    Sandfish continues to be the best restaurant for sushi in palm springs and many other places. We arrived in palm springs in Dec and have eaten there 5 times. It is always good.

    We came for the sushi, were in awe at the high prices of rolls and sushi a la carte. We ended ordering the Omakase /Chefs menu with hopes that we would get our money’s worth at 165$/person.. well of all the 9 dishes, one was three pieces of sushi and one was sashimi, the rest was a take on anything but sushi. Add a couple of cocktails and two bottles or water and off we go with an over 500$ dinner for two. Never again, this is a complete trap. Very disappointing

    Outstanding. While we know this is an exceptional restaurant we also experienced unreasonable hospitality. I read this book recently “ unreasonable hospitality “. Excellent book on becoming the number 1 restaurant in the world. I experienced this with our waiter Ivan G. He was outstanding. He went the extra mile. He delivered and his manager supported him. Kudos. The food is beautifully presented and delicious. The martini was incredible. Congratulations to an amazing team. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️🥂

    First time visiting was very disappointing to find the drinks took about 15 minutes to receive only to be sent back due to not what we're ordered . Sushi however was on point. Service was good however for the price charged per item the drinks should be on point and to spec. Tried it but will not be going back anytime soon.

    limited saki selection. Would love to see (and taste) what it could be if there was more of an emphasis on the Sushi rather than the whiskey and the other non sushi menu items

    Came into the restaurant for the Valentines pre-fix menu, definitely not worth the value for the amount of food you are getting. A lot better if we have ordered a La carte. Rice on nigiri and rolls were hard, they were handing out oysters without telling us the price which was 6 bucks for one.. been to place many times and this was by far my worse experience. Service was still good though.
