I love this place. Service and food are are always great. They serve some of the best sushi in town. The ambiance is amazing. Nice place to go on a date or a group outing. Beautiful interior. Many different options of seating

This was the first time i had a bad experience here. Our waitress was so rude and was slow bringing our drinks and it took a long time to get our food. They did get us a new waiter and he tried his best to make things better. I never had this happen at Soma Sushi.

I loved the open windows on a perfectly cool night when our weather is just right, and you can sit right there and feel the outdoors while sitting on the second story, the service was kinda slow the sushi didn't impress me but the sesame garlic wings and the mohitoes were perfect.

We were a group of 6 friends on a get together to hang out and have a fun night. We requested a table by the window, instead got the table between the bathroom and the kitchen doors - as far as possible from the windows. . . no biggie. Food was decent but in no way made up for the service. Service was HORRIBLE. We would've easily double our bill had the server been slightly more attentive. We weren't uptight about it or complaining so maybe he thought he did a good job. The restaurant was busy, but not that busy. Server didn't seem frazzled or overstretched, we just rarely saw him, when he did stop by, he never offered anyone drinks despite the round of drinks and bottle of Sake we ordered straight away. When we asked for our bill we all took over/unders on when we would see him again - the winner was likely to have been my date at 30 minutes (!!!) but after 22 minutes one of our friends got up and walked into the kitchen and demanded his credit card back. The manager gave him all the cards back, though I think they had run a couple of them. We felt bad and left some cash on the table for a tip but it was purely for our conscience not a job well done.

This was one of my fave places for Japanese food - but i have to say that the last 2 visits, i see that there is a decline in the quality and quantity of food.
Our server was totally not interested but was busy chatting up the ladies -we even approached the bar tender to help us out as we were unable to get his attention - All in all a very disappointing date esp during happy hour.
we used to get their gift cards and visit atleast once a month but i am not sure that i would like to come back - at least for a while.

Tristan was our waiter.. He started out good and then we needed him mid ways had to wait for a good amount of time to come back.. After looking around for him we found him sitting down and eating.. Mind you he mentioned fried ice cream to us for my friend 27th bday. Let's just say we paid for our table he handed us all of the receipt books at once and left.. Honestly if I haven't been before I wouldve gave a worst survey and told people not to come... At least not at this location smh

I have eaten here several times for lunch and had excellent service and food. However, Sunday was not that great an experience. Our server seemed to be completely distracted and we had long waits for our food and drink orders. It was too bad since we were entertaining an out of town guest and told her that RA was a great establishment. I hope that we just caught RA on a bad day.

Good for Happy Hour. It does seem to get busy so a reservation really does help; without a reservation we waited about 30 to 40 minutes for a table. I've gone on a Friday and Wednesday night and both times most of the people looked dressed up. Nice, low lighting and good service.

We got there on time; we were placed in an area without a server. We requested to move to a booth since they were available and that area was much quieter. Our server brought out plated dishes out of order; my sashimi came out before the appetizer and I didn't receive the rice until I stopped them at least 10 minutes later to request it along with my wife's dish. This is all meant as constructive criticism as my wife loves the food and restaurant; I just feel the customer service could be improved.

Had a reservation at this location. We were seated at a table with a hobbled leg. The whole time we were there the table was rocking and it was annoying. When the waitress came and brought our waters she spilled some on my new suede shoes and didn't even apologize. I ordered three sushi rolls. After 20 minutes of waiting one roll came out and it was very unsatisfactory. It was supposed to be a hot roll and it was room temperature at most. Then after 15 more minutes of waiting the waitress came by and told us sorry for the long wait because "there is a party here". I feel like they should be able to arrange a staff plan to make sure that everyone is taken care of no matter the situation. After that I cancelled the rest of my order and we left. Very horrible. Next time I'll go to the CityCentre location where they take care of their customers and the food is great.
