    Delicious specials, very nice sake and cocktail menu. The rolls were standard and good but you could really taste the freshness and quality of the fish in the nigiri. Next time I would probably skip rolls and get nigiri or sashimi. Great experience and great service!

    Great experience, great service. They definitely up their game with warm towels, edamame for the table, oranges at the end. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable, and engaged. She removed used items every time she came back to our table. Our food was very good. We're vegetarian so not a huge amount of options but what we had was great. And the atmosphere was so pretty. Even the bathrooms:)

    SoraResponded 3 days agoHi Jennifer, I'm glad to learn your experience was a positive one. Thank you for taking the time to provide us with a review. I am pleased to hear that our team made your experience pleasant. As we grow our small business, we are looking to implement more menu options. Hopefully by your next visit we will have more vegetarian options for you. We hope to see you again soon. Thank you, The Sora Team

    Sora was a delicious Japanese restaurant that not only had a beautiful ambience but wonderful sushi to match the vibe. For my partner who doesn’t eat meat, the vegetarian sweet potato curry was flavorful and delicious! The music was just loud enough to where you could hear your table but not the table next to you. Cant forget about the millions of photo ops! I got the pink drink with a beautiful bubble on top that matches the neon signs, the flower, and the tree! The staff was very nice and patient, going through each part of the menu to help when we were being decisive about the numerous sakes. Overalll, had a wonderful experience and it was definitely worth the price!

    SoraResponded 3 days agoHi Erica, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with a review. I am pleased to hear that our team made your experience pleasant and went above and beyond for you. As for our menu, our food is priced to meet the rising food costs in the industry. We make sure to provide quality, freshness and exceptional presentations of our sushi. We've put a lot of work into creating a unique ambiance unlike anything else in Cleveland so we greatly appreciate your input. We hope to see you again soon!

    Ordered same entree with one other person and they got a salad and I didn’t. One sushi order was plated while everyone else’s was placed on one plate. Didn’t understand why it was presented that way especially because it was a special roll. I’m a foodie so I care about how food is presented.

    What we liked: *Decor *Spicy tuna crispy rice *Hostess who seated us *Music wasn't loud What we didn't: *Wet, unseasoned sushi rice *One mound of wasabi was crumbly--was it wasabi or something else? *Soy sauce was smoky and strange--found out it was made in-house *Server was nice but didn't check in on us after $120 worth of sushi was dropped off at our table. We were more than halfway through when she came back and we mentioned not caring for the soy (guess we had an option for regular, but we didn't know until it was too late) *The Umi roll hardly seems worth $30 when the rice is subpar and you don't like the soy sauce We didn't try cocktails since we got sake and beer, but they sounded interesting. When I booked the reservation, I made mention it was for a birthday, but nobody acknowledged it. Sora didn't live up to the hype--looks carry you only so far. Based on the empty tables, maybe a lot of people already got the message. Good luck, Sora.

    Such a cool spot- the effort put into decor and vibes are immaculate. The food and drinks were fresh and delicious- two people splitting an appetizer, entree, and one specialty roll. Yes, things are pricey, but worth it. I was happily full with that amount (I don't think you need to get 2 rolls unless you are not getting an app or are getting smaller rolls). Our waitress was attentive but not overly so - we felt comfortably waited on. It was not crowded on a weeknight, but I bet it is a lot of fun as a place to start your weekend. The pink lighting is very flattering for date night/ girls' night!

    Outstanding! We sat at the sushi bar d interacted with the master chef just like you would with a friendly blackjack dealer in Vegas that likes to help and guide when you ask questions. I had a horrible experience with Sea Urchin the first time I tried it several years ago and he insisted I try it again and he would guid me how to eat and savor it. He called it his "closer". It is so speci to him, it is what he finishes with when he partakes.

    Arrived on a Sunday to learn that the Sushi Chefs have the day off and Speciality Rolls aren't served. Had I known this to be true in advance, I would have reserved elsewhere or on a different day. The service was upfront and honest which I appreciate. Regardless, I came for the full sushi menu and it wasn't available.

    Sora is a sushi restaurant but it also offers other Asian inspired dishes that non-sushi diners can enjoy. Out table of four had Miso Soup, two serves of the Gyoza, Taiwanese Fried Chicken, the Suki roll with Shrimp Tempura, Avocado, Spicy Tuna, Spicy Mayo, Unagi Sauce, and Tenkatsu, the Asparagus roll, the Matcha Creme Brulee, and the Dark Chocolate mousse. All excellent. While the win list is not very extensive, we enjoyed the Chardonnay and the Plum wine. Next time, I'll be trying the Saki list, which had lots of choices. The decor is spectacular, with most of the ceiling covered in cherry blossoms. The murals are expressive of the Japanese theme. Service was excellent.

    We had high expectations from the menu they have posted online, when we were seated we were given a different menu with less options. A lot less. The food was good but we’ve had better. The service, drinks, and decor were great.
