The waitress was awful- brought the beer we ordered after we were done eating. She had long fingernails that prohibited her from being able to pick up the appetizer plates - she was so inattentive to us the appetizer plates were still on the table when she brought the sushi over. She asked for help to pick up the plates because her nails were too long to do it. Seems unsanitary to have nails like that serving food, they must occasionally touch the food. The sushi was blah- the seaweed was chewy the pieces were unevenly cut and sloppy. Basically not delicious- more like grocery store sushi. The crab wontons seemed stale like they’d been pre-made, they were cold and chewy- no crab to be detected. Overall disappointing night.

By far the best sushi joint in Milwaukee. I’ve been going here for 3 years now and definitely always worth the visit. Would recommend to anyone.

We had a great experience! Our server was very knowledgable about the menu,
particularly the drinks, and made great recommendations. He probably could have been more attentive, but I think he was giving us space because we were celebrating a special occasion, which I appreciated. The food and drinks were great, a little pricier than I am used to, but good quality! Plus the outdoor seating area in the river was beautiful. Will definitely return as soon as we can!

The staff is friendly, the ambiance is good, but the maki rolls just leave a lot to be desired. They have plenty of creative rolls, and the presentation is nice, but I’ve yet to be able to say that any of them really satisfy my taste buds. Even their basic rolls are not as tasty as other restaurants. This was my second time there, and I probably won’t be back for awhile.

We celebrated our anniversary here! We had a great table next to the window, so we had a nice view of the river and then got front row seats to a pretty amazing thunderstorm! The sushi was excellent, and the prices were very reasonable considering I'm used to Chicago prices. Our waitress was very friendly, provided excellent service, and brought us a free dessert in honor of our anniversary! I'd definitely recommend this place, and would go again if I'm in Milwaukee. Thanks!

Food was disgusting and unflavored. Waitress was kind of snippy as well. Would not recommend, and would not patronize again. Me and my friend sushi rolls only had 4/5 pieces, while other customers has at least 7/8…we were both confused as to why that was. Most sushi rolls are cut up to at least 6 pieces….so where did the rest of our sushi rolls go to?? Definitely not worth the money, flavorless just not good.

Just moved to Milwaukee from Denver. Disappointed in the quality of sushi compared to what we are used to. Rolls were odd compilations and sashimi had very little flavor.

This is a great night out. Try the Butterfly Effect (a cocktail). And don't forget the mochi for dessert. It was just the right amount of sweet to finish the meal.

First time eating here, wanted a good spot on the river to dine at. The location did not disappoint, our reservation was right before sunset and the scenery was beautiful. The food was good all around. their wontons were amazing and their sushi was definitely high quality. I have definitely had better but this was a wonderful experience! The service was great as well which always makes it more enjoyable.
