This was a good, fun date spot. I chose this location for a first date and it worked out very well. Ambiance was great. I didn't order well but the hand crab rolls and spicy tuna crispy rice were good.

Usually everything is amazing, service was not this time due to the holiday. My sister came in town for this meal, she loved the food and ambiance but our meal lasted over double what it should have in timing.

I would recommend this place for night out with friends as the atmosphere is very lively and energetic. However at this particular time I was a bit disappointed since I was looking for something less loud and little more romantic. The cocktails were good, however the food was just okay and so I wouldn't recommend the value.

Great looking location with the decor and a packed bar scene. The sushi just didn't equal the overall style of the restaurant. The crispy sushi rice was overall the best item we had.

Keep it strictly to drinks and an appetizer! High priced mediocre sushi. Pretty insulting, although nowadays people in Venice appear to be more concerned with looks than substance.

One of my favorite sushi joints.....the food is always great and consistent. Some favorites are the yellowtail sashimi and the spicy tuna on crispy rice. There bar areas open to the street is wonderful during late afternoons.

Where to start? we waited 45 minutes for our food. Sashimi arrives and 2 minutes later a waiter comes and takes the plate away. Wrong table.. At least they took the sashimi out of the bill but I will not return.

worse japanese restaurant I have been to in a long time. Not only was the value horrible but the food quality was so bad. It was a meal that cost over 500.00 (i have no issues spending money on food, just spent well over $700 for same family members two nights earlier)
