The food left a lot to be desired - mid sushi for a premium price. The service was OUTSTANDING - Brandon is an absolute gem.

Always an amazing meal. They put a great twist on so many different dishes. We had a friend with who was not a fan of sushi, she had the chicken tenders - tempura batter made them AMAZING and I was jealous.

Great ambiance, good food. Service was horrific. Waited 1 hour to get our entrees, when asking the waiter how much longer, he was very rude and condescending. Cudos to the Manager for helping the situation. Might try again, but will avoid that server.

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.

Excellent food and even better service. The best sushi I've had in Milwaukee yet, ask for Brandon P if you want a delightful dining experience.
