Great service! Beautiful restaurant! And the sushi was amazing! Probably some of the best that I’ve had in Atlanta. Will be visiting again soon.

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!!

Starfish is one our of favorite sushi spots in atlanta. My favorite rolls are the "She's All That", "Woman on Top", "Finding Nemo", and "North & South". The White Tuna is always tasty too. The service can be slow at times, but they generally do a great job. If you're not in the mood for sushi, the teppanaki is a good choice as well as the tempuras they offer. Enjoy!

We have been to starfish probably 6 times in the last year. The food is good, and the service is fair. We return for the Sushi, free parking, and for convenience. We are picky about where we eat Sushi, and we are comfortable eating it here.

The service can be quite inattentive, not because they don't care, but they are unaware. You may have to get up to find them!

The Sushi and soft shell crab here is delicious, the service is extremely courteous and professional, it's been a long time since I've been to a restaurant with a staff that took pride in their profession.... yes, I'd come here again. Prices are affordable as well.

The sashimi may well be the freshest I have ever tasted!

We sat at the sushi bar and enjoyed our conversation with the chef.

This is a must go to restaurant if you have a hankering for superb sashimi and fine Japanese cuisine.

love the food; service is hit or miss. I can walk to this spot from home, so would like to become a regular, but the main hostess (older lady) can be...unwelcoming. Hours say open til 11 on Sat, Open Table allows booking at 10:30, but when we arrive we're told "take out only", and felt like we were inconveniencing her. Saving grace? Sushi chef(s)...awesome! They yelled thank you from across the room. We'll go again, and maybe be recognized.

We arrived early to our reservation and was seated immediately. We waited 15 minutes without anyone coming to offer water or service of any kind. The hostess was not concerned when I told her we were leaving and she offered no apology. We have been to starfish many times but will never return. We ended up having a great dinner at Doraku at the Streets of Buckhead. Highly recommend!

Whether it's a nice dinner with friends or just grabbing a to-go order, Starfish is very low maintenance and easy to grab a seat. The specialty sushi rolls range from crowd favorites found in any sushi restaurant to unique rolls such as the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory roll (filet mignon coating!!). The service is always very cordial and quick.
