Our favorite place. I think they have a new bartender, because the martinis were not quite as excellent as previous visits.

For a change of pace we decided not to order sushi but instead we ordered Ramen noodles. The broth was flavorless

My favorite sushi place anywhere. Go about every 2 weeks for lunch and the fish is great, the presentation is wonderful and it's a good value as far a sushi places go. Highly recommend it.

My husband and I visit the restaurant almost weekly and recently had dinner with visiting family. They could believe how fresh the sushi was and the delish variety of appetizers. We highly recommend. But make reservations on the weekend or you won't get a table.

I never ever write reviews but I have to write one here. I made a reservation for lunch for 3 people to celebrate a family members 60th birthday. We got seated and the waitress basically took our order the second we sat down, threw our food at us ( meaning it was out within a few minutes- appetizers salads and rolls all brought out same time). Waitress came over about 5 times asking if we were finished eating while we were still eating. Didn’t offer us a dessert menu and brought our check. We were celebrating a birthday, I marked it on the reservation and we couldn’t have been more disappointed in the service and how rude they were, the food was not up to par and if this is how they act, They shouldn’t even bother accepting reservations. We will never go back.

I’m not a fan of sushi but my wife likes it. Sushi was fair but appetizers are better. Will not return many other sushi places are better! Service was slow when it got busy! Washroom floor was covered in 1 inch of water!

We went in for dinner and I was a little underwhelmed by the decor. Although we had made Open Table reservations and there were tables available in the dining room, they sat us at the bar. No big deal, we didn’t ask to move. At that point, we looked at the menu and we were disappointed that it was missing our favorite sushi go-tos. How was the service? After about 15 minutes of being entirely ignored, we decided to walk out.

Food was great. Long wait even with reservation. No area to really wait either. Small bench in front of entrance and host stand which fits a handful of people. If you’re lucky enough to sit you feel in the way of everyone coming and going, or you have to stand and block the door.

We were seated right away but waited over 15 minutes for a waiter to take our order. They also didn’t check us in for our OpenTable reservation which resulted in OpenTable emailing me asking me if I missed my reservation. We’ve been here several times and this was the worst experience and service we had.

Unfortunately this time around. Starfish shushi did not meet any expectations, sushi pieces were limited but the size were very large which will never fit as one bite. On top of it the wrapping was so loose that everything was falling the moment it picked from plate. The chocolate soufflé was burned some places and had an aftertaste that we could not even finish it. It was just very bad experience considering our first visit was way better .

I've been here 4 times now and every time, without exception, they have hit it out of the park. This place is not your typical sushi place. They respect it as an art and the food is fresh and simply presented in the best form.

We've done everything from assorted sushi, sashimi to their Don-Bu-Ri which is their rice bowl. They have elevated everything and the freshness, even on the grilled food is top notch. They get you out for lunch quickly as well.

I haven't tried their chicken or other non-fish dishes. I'm sure it's the same quality. Their Salmon Danburi is almost too much food for lunch.

Without a doubt, this is in my top two places for sushi anywhere I've been in the Midwest. I'd love to make it to dinner, and just ask the chef for "omakase", and let them guide the meal. You can't miss with them.

gyoza and stuffed mushroom appetizers were excellent, the side salads were very tasty with a great dressing, had the vegetarian combo, smoky bear maki roll, golden dragon maki roll, dirty old man maki roll, and muffy maki roll. all of the entrees were prepared perfectly and looked and tasted excellent. very very good. ended up with the peach sorbet and bomba desserts, excellent as well.

service could have been much better, had to ask multiple times for soy sauce (for the maki rolls), none on the table. also had to ask multiple times for iced tea refills. annoying but not terrible.

definitely will return, loved the place

We have been there many times. It's a great sushi restaurant. I think because of Mother's Day weekend, it was busier then usual, and they didn't have enough staff. Normally, service is very good
