Always so fresh and tasty. The pompano in truffle oil is divine. The hamachi and tuna in orange oil provides a great balance between savory and sweet.

We think it is the best sushi in Atlanta. My husband and I are regulars (3+times per month). The staff is very friendly and the selection is terrific.

There was 6 of us at the table, which I had only booked for 4 but they accommodated the change without any fuss. We shared dishes and food arrived quickly. The ambiance was friendly. Food excellent. All in all I had a great meal:) Recommend highly.

Wow! I live in Midtown and have passed by this restaurant for years but never stopped in. My mistake!

Went there last night and found the service and food to be phenomenal! The Sushi was Fresh and the rolls were creative and delicious!

The other thing that I loved most, was the fact that my friend and I could dine together and actually have a conversation with each other. So many restaurants these days are so loud that you cannot hear or concentrate.

Will definitely go back and will certainly recommend that others do the same!

This was our first time to Statfish. We had friends in from out of town. The food was good but the service was not good. Took forever to take our order. Had to ask for water. Drinks at from the bar took forever. Even after we got our food everytime we needed something it took forever to flag down a waiter or waitress. It was nit even half full on a Fri night. So the lack of service was not due to a full restaurant. We will not be back.

Went here for a date. The sushi was very good but their special roll menu was dominated by spicy tuna. It was an ingredient featured a little to prominently on the menu

The Spicy Korean Pork, Galbi, and Lamb were fantastic entrees. For dessert, we had their chocolate cake. It was the perfect amount for two after a large dinner and was delicious. The service was attentive and respectful. Will definitely be coming back on the regular.
Parking is also very good for Buckhead/Atlanta

Always a great experience at Starfish! Not sure if it is under new ownership, the new menu looks great and has been updated to include many more trendy options. Reasonable pricing along with good saki and beer options. This is one of those everyday restaurants with no fuss, but delicious food and an attentive staff.

We love Starfish for a date night away from the kids. The dining room is so cozy, the sushi is amazing and you get to watch it being prepared (from our favorite table near the sushi bar).

Starfish is really good. They offer some unique dishes that will keep us coming back. The servers are friendly and fast. The noise level is perfect for a business dinner and we had an awesome meal!

Starfish is a small sushi restaurant that is quiet, never busy, and serves mid-price sushi, and other Japanese dishes. I particularly like their miso soup. Ingredients seem fresh. They also offer mid-priced wines (such as Hook & Ladder Chardonnay), and Asian beers.

I enjoy it for a low-pressure, but still nice dining experience. It's not noisy/clattery like so many restaurants these days and features soft comfortable chairs and booths. The service is reasonably attentive and not intrusive. Overall a great little spot for sushi and conversation.

All food was very good except for the gumbo. The roux was bitter which usually means it was burnt.

They seemed a little short-staffed on my last visit. This is my neighborhood sushi go-to spot, so I have to give them a break. Usually it’s a great experience!

Parking not as difficult as many sites say. Three is retail parking under the restaurant building. We were disappointed the first two menu items and the first wine choice not available. Service was not very attentive. Sushi portions were very good and tempura lobster was delicious. Too many rolls to pick from.

Sushi was horrible and way overpriced. When my husband doesn't finish his rolls you know it's bad. The rolls had either pungent fishy taste or no flavor at all. The eel was cut different and it was so think and made it unappealing to eat.

My favorite restaurant in Atlanta. I could eat there every day and sometimes do. Fresh, fresh fish. Creative, delicious rolls. Amazing chefs, attentive wait staff, all eager to please. Something for everyone - mild, spicy, raw, cooked. The Best!!
