    So this isn’t a traditional Omakase experience- quiet, intimate, respect for the food. This is Omakase Miami style- loud music, fast food service, bright neon colors on the walls. The menu was generous for the price, fish was fresh (although a couple of pieces were under seasoned), and the chefs were friendly. The cocktails were amazingly thought out and complimented the food. What I found daunting was the food service. I felt like I was in a Formula1 race to finish 17 dishes in 1 hour which was stressful in itself! This feeling is amplified by loud techno music - also prompting us to eat faster. This may be a great experience for some, but not for me. The worst part of the evening was when my husband and I were rushed by the manager Laura into a small room to finish my drink, which I found extremely rude, as I still had a piece of sushi on my plate. We immediately paid and left. Good value, party atmosphere, timed and rushed 1hr meal. Not my kind of omakase experience.

    Basic omakase is really reasonable but the upsell on items ordered after service are downright inappropriate. $600 bill for 2 people. I could have flew half way to Japan.

    First time going to Sushi by Bou and I loved the experience! The staff and the chefs are so attentive to detail and nice. The meal and drinks were amazing. Ambiance was 10/10. They sent a message ahead of reservation advising the dinning experience is for 1 (one) hour, this was the perfect duration for the experience and although we knew we had limited time the staff made sure the experience was pleasant and they did not rush you through the meal. They have a super cool lounge area where you can have dessert and drinks after your dinner. Highly, highly recommend this spot!

    What an amazing omakase experience!! Fish was super fresh and they served all of the good stuff- no courses with weird monk liver or cheaper filler courses. Cocktails were also very impressive. But the real star of the show was the service. I mentioned in passing that it was my moms birthday to the bartender and from then on they did everything to make her night special. Sent out complimentary shots, surprise birthday cake, and even let her go behind the sushi counter to help the chefs! Will definitely be back. Jordan and Jeff were sooooo entertaining.

    Such a cute small intimate experience! Sushi chefs are amazing and all 17 courses were great! The only draw back I would mention, is they do hourly bookings : so be sure to digest your food quick or try the later seating because they will move you out of dining area to a “disco” room to finish. That’s the only thing I really didn’t enjoy. If I’m paying $120 I want to truly have the time to enjoy the food. Maybe it would be helpful for longer seating times? Other than that. No complaints!

    BY FAR the most amazing dining experience. From the level of customer service to orgasmic omakase - HANDS DOWN a must. Laura was the most gracious warm host, Jeff and Jordan's energy made the WHOLE experience so much fun. great music.. Its so rare these days to have awesome ambiance and outstanding food. well BRAVO, they did it! my only complaint is... WHY DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS PLACE SOONER!!!! -Elena

    A secret and highly worthwhile sushi hide away. Service is omikase only without a menu and the chefs choices are your choices. But the chefs knows best. The two chefs work together so all diners receive matched sushi simultaneously and their coordination is perfect. Fish is fresh and variety is excellent. From sit down to dinner complete is about 65 minutes. Efficient and satisfying. Not for everyone as No rolls are served and no imaginary American Japanese Frankenstein combos. I liked Bou for the simplicity and freshness.

    I've had many Omakase experiences and this was one of the best. Chef's Jeff & Tim we're funny, engaging and worked their craft masterfully. While not the most unusual, the Omakase featured the highest quality ingredients that were simply prepared with subtle but well-thought out enhancements. There were some unique combinations that I had not had before and I highly recommend you try the "Big Mac" but I won't spoil the surprise by telling you the 4 ingredients. And the table service by Laura & Gustavo was first class. Don't miss this little gem!

    Pleasantly surprised by this experience. The food was great quality in terms of flavor, presentation, and ingredients. The staff (chefs, waiters, etc.) we’re accommodating and friendly. Would recommend to anyone in the area wanting to try an omakase experience without having to break the bank in Miami. Great date night spot.
