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

Modern atmosphere, not your typical sushi bar. Dark lighting, though don't really appreciate all of the big TV screens. My favorite dish here is the Star Don, which is their version of Chirashi (though they also have the traditional version). It is generous pieces of tuna, salmon and yellow tail over sushi rice artfully displayed in a bowl. A bit pricey, but definitely worth it! Service isn't the most attentive.

We have been to Starfish a few times and like it more and more every time. The food and cocktails are outstanding. The wakame salad is a huge value, delicious and beautifully presented. Sorry I didn’t take a pic! A large salad with the seaweed over greens, it’s served in a fried wonton bowl. The basic and specialty rolls are fresh and beautifully prepared.

Our server was cheerful, prompt, and very helpful. The food was delicious, and I was thrilled with the large portion of seaweed salad. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that I felt the place was kind of loud, but we had requested a quiet corner for a business meeting, and they put us right by the sushi bar, which was perfect. The prices seemed reasonable for the quality. My partner enjoyed the meal very much. We hadn't been out for sushi in some time and this was just the perfect place.

I can’t say enough about what a nice experience we had on our first trip to this restaurant. We were 10 minutes late for our reservation and they were so gracious about it and still sat us right away. The service was excellent, perfectly timed, and the food was absolutely delicious. They brought a special complementary dessert for my husband since I mentioned his birthday when I made the reservation. We can’t wait to go back.

The sushi selection was great and very flavorful. However, the sushi was not packed as tightly as I am used to. As a result, it fell apart as my partner and I picked each piece up with chopsticks. We also lost our waitress for a bit and had to ask another for assistance.

Service was a little slow. I wasn't too happy with the raspberry iced tea. I did not like the serving dish for the steak. It is some kind of convex hot stone that really doesn't work well and just causes a mess. My date was very satisfied though.
