    Best dining experience in Pittsburgh yet! We've been here for 7+ years and have tried pretty much every fine-dining establishment in the metro-area and Gi-Jin takes the cake for sure. The fish is top quality and presentation was immaculate. Their in-house fortified soy sauce is incredible, one of those things where you don't realize how good something can be until you have a version of it that is truly excellent. I can't look at the store-bought stuff in my fridge the same again! Highly recommend starting with the Onigiri, then the sashimi plate, then move on to the individual nigiri/shashimi and "hand rolls" as your heart desires. I put hand rolls in quotes because Gi-Jin does them a little differently, instead of the conical rolls you're used to, they plate them almost as little tacos with nori shells, just fold and eat! From the beautiful interior woodwork and wallpaper to the unique chopstick holders at each setting, to the $3000 Toto toilet/bidet combo with automatic heated seat and dryer functionality in both bathrooms - everything about Gi-Jin is a cultivated experience designed to surprise and delight the customer. Also seriously considering getting one of those Totos installed in my house....

    Wonderful date night with my daughter. The service was five star from the maitre d' to the waiter to the barmaid. Food presentation was top notch as well. All in all a very enjoyable experience and a must for anyone that enjoys sushi. We will definitely return.

    I heard so much hype about this place. Took almost a year to nab a reservation, but while we were there last night half the tables were empty. The whole vibe was sad. The restaurant's design is very cool, but the food was mid and the service was extremely disappointing. Our server knew nearly nothing about the menu and could barely explain basic menu concepts. The food was plain and basic and hand rolls were tiny little suski tacos that completely fell apart when you bit into them. The whole experience was joyless.

    Exciting new spot in Pittsburgh. The atmosphere is elegant and unique. The hand rolls are absolutely to die for! I would also recommend the nigiri and sashimi. Overall some of the best if not the best Japanese in the greater Pittsburgh area Cons: they do not have physical menus which forces guests to use their phone, taking attention away from the moment and making the phone the center of the table. This is becoming more and more popular among restaurants and it’s unfortunate. We all have too much time on our phones anyway! We shouldn’t need to have them at dinner to order food. They have an excellent cocktail menu but their sake sizes by the glass are limited.

    I took my family to Gi-Jin on a Friday night. Beautiful space, calm and cozy ambience. Every course was elegantly plated and had unique flavor twists. Highlights of the night were the salmon shrager hand roll, the nigiri plate, and the unagi (eel) nigiri. Plenty of gin cocktails, Japanese beers, and wines to round out the experience. Server was very attentive. A great spot for celebration dinners and meeting old friends.

    Outstanding service and very high quality food. The drink and food menu is both creative and fun. Perfect spot for a date night - we had an excellent time. Highly recommend starters, splitting a "plate," and ordering a mix of shashimi/nigiri and hand rolls as your entree.

    My experience was awesome. As someone who doesn’t eat raw food I still was able to enjoy the ginger salad which was amazing, California roll with real crab, and a shrimp tempura roll… plus drinks of course! I will definitely go back. The service was great!
