    This place was an all around disappointment. The food was not great. There were a few items that were delicious but the majority was not good. The chef was busy chatting with one of the customers almost the whole time and that was distracting. He was actually very nice when he turned his attention to us. I was disappointed and do not recommend.

    Amazing hospitality. Wonderful sushi chefs. Delightful seasonal omakase menu: tonight, the chawanmushi with snow crab, maitake mushrooms and I believe a hint of truffle was delectable!!

    I used to come to this restaurant for the chef’s tasting menu and it was all nigiri and the chef prepared pieces for as long as you liked. It was amazing! This was a different experience where half of the meal was cooked food and nigiri served at the end with the option to purchase more. I wish there was an option to experience their food the old way. Also, a sushi dinner for two with a couple glasses of sake each shouldn’t be over $900.00. That’s just insane.

    I would probably not go back. Even though 85% of the food was excellent- but not 100%. The drinks menu is fun albeit quite pricey. The place has cool modern feel and a private conversation is possible. The service was efficient but I missed a personal touch. No coffee or tea was offered at the end.

    Service was prompt, on time, and all the staff were very attentive. They even went as far as plating things to fit a left-handed vs. right handed person. My drinks were always filled and plates were taken away at the appropriate times. I was really lucky to be seated in front of Chef Matt and to have the opportunity to watch an artist work on his craft. Along with his high skill, he was very knowledgeable and I appreciate that he saw I wasn't such a talkative person and let me eat in peace. The quality of the fish was fantastic and I had some flashbacks to being in japan eating sushi. The dishes were unique in that there were some twists and flavors that I hadn't considered before with traditional sushi ingredients. Thank you for a great dinner! I'm glad I finally got to experience your dinner service.

    We did the Omakase lunch. Every dish was so delicious. All were favorites because every single course was so good and can't compare cause the flavors were so different from each other but the entire meal was all so balancing. The truffle ice cream dessert was to die for and the wagyu roll was so melting in the mouth!

    Ray is an artist with the sushi. Grab an opportunity to enjoy this experience Restaurant Review: Akikos I recently had the pleasure of dining at Akikos, and I must say, it was an exquisite culinary experience. From the moment I stepped into the restaurant, I was greeted with an ambiance that beautifully blended modern elegance with a hint of traditional Japanese charm. The attentive staff made me feel welcome and ensured that my dining experience would be nothing short of exceptional. Akikos is known for its sushi, and rightly so. Ray, the talented artist behind the sushi counter, showcased his skills with every delicate creation. Each piece of sushi was a work of art, meticulously crafted with precision and attention to detail. The freshness of the ingredients was evident with every bite, and the flavors were nothing short of remarkable. Whether it was the buttery texture of the toro or the subtle sweetness of the uni, each bite transported me to a realm of culinary bliss. The fusion of traditional and contemporary flavors was a delight to the palate, creating a harmonious symphony of taste. Apart from the exceptional food, the service at Akikos was impeccable. The staff members were knowledgeable, friendly, and went above and beyond to ensure that my dining experience was memorable. They attentively explained each dish, provided insightful recommendations, and ensured that I had everything I needed throughout the meal. The overall ambiance of Akikos was elegant and inviting. The minimalist decor and warm lighting created a serene atmosphere that allowed me to fully immerse myself in the culinary journey. I highly recommend Akikos to anyone looking to indulge in a culinary experience that is truly exceptional. With Ray’s artistic mastery of sushi, coupled with the exquisite flavors and impeccable service, Akikos presents an opportunity to savor the beauty of Japanese cuisine!

    We loved Akiko when it was on Bush St. We were really looking forward to trying the Omakase at the new, beautiful, location. However, the food wasn't the same, mediocre at best, which was a big disappointment. We will not return.
