The food was great but the server forgot to put in 2 of our table’s orders, and so only some of us were served our food. We had to wait about 20 minutes before the final 2 meals were delivered. Not great.

We could only get an 8:30 pm reservation on open table for 8 people for sushi. When we arrived at 8:30, we were told that the kitchen closed at 9:20. The waitress did not come back for an additional sushi order and we had to find her to place our order at 9:18pm. She was not happy and clearly wanted to go home.

Great food and service! Waiter reccommend a bottle of sake and saporro instead of 6 individual sake bombs, which saved us money and we got more out of it. I appreciated that!

It was my good friend’s birthday! Our server was friendly and timely with our drink orders to appetizer, main course and dessert! Will definitely go back again soon!
My only feedback would be timelier service from the hostess upon arrival. During peak hours, have at least 2 hostesses or one host and another “floater”.
Other than that, when we were next in line, we were seated immediately.

The ambiance at this place is weird- the upstairs is great, but is too small. So most seating is in the basement. The basement is fine, but it's basically a storage room. We were sat at a table with mismatched booths and chairs, so half of us could barely reach the table we were so low. The food was...fine. Nothing exciting. Will not return.

Service could have been a little bit faster, but the sushi was solid for the price we paid. The ambiance is nice and quiet, for the most part. And they were kind enough to cover a glass of wine for our friend's birthday.

The sushi was amazing unfortunately service was just extremely slow took almost 20 minutes before they even took a drink order we were just about to get up and leave. But we ordered our food at that same time and it came about 25 minutes later and it was really good

We were excited about going back to Hai but disappointed when escorted to the basement and sat in the very back corner like were being punished. Thankfully the service was outstanding! London was all smiles and had great timing every time she checked in with us. A true professional.
The food was good but not great. The sushi was excellent, the grilled salmon was tasteless (no i do not have covid:)
Sushi Hai is a standard for us and we will be back.... hopefully upgraded above ground. Happy Sunday!

Made a reservation for 7:30 on Friday. Arrived 10 minutes early to be told they could put us on a wait list which would be about 30 minutes. Not sure why I would make a reservation to only be put on a waitlist. The entry hall was packed with other customers in the same situation. Definitely no social distancing happening.

Given that, we expected service to be extremely slow but they were a normal speed once we got seated. Clearly understaffed as the staff came by to take our order, deliver our food and handle the bill. No other contact. Sushi was decent quality, but given the rest of the experience, I’m not sure we will be back.

Dined in last night and had a great experience. Seating is well spread out and everything seemed safe and clean. We got the firecracker roll, crispy rice (on app menu - GET THIS), salmon avocado roll and hamachi nigri. Everything was fresh and delicious per usual. Also the playlist last night was great 👌thanks sushi hai!!

My friend & I had a very nice dinner. The gyoza & chili shrimp were delicious. Although it seemed a lot of the sushi roll options included eel &/or eel sauce, everything was fresh and expertly prepared.
The service was attentive but not intrusive so that we never wanted for anything. I look forward to exploring their dinner menu next time.

Overall the experience was great. We’ve ordered from Sushi Hai many times during pandemic, but had not been there in person in a long time. It was a nice atmosphere overall. The noise level rose as it got busier, which is normal, but we still felt like it was easy to have conversation. The sushi was tasty and the right temperature.

Sushi hai is our go-to weekly. Usually we get take out: crunchy rolls with tempura flakes on the side 👌 that way they are crunchy when we get home. But this time we got to go out!!! We had planned to go to a fancy Brazilian steakhouse downtown, but because of COVID-19 and my comfort level, I wasn’t able to stay there. They had no regard for the CDC guidelines; Sushi Hai on the other hand did! Tables were spaced properly and capacity was lower. The food was incredible as always. We had our favorite crunchy rolls, sashimi (sadly no Japanese mint with it), lobster bisque, lobster pasta and ribeyes. The steak was tenderized and perfectly cooked medium rare. The peach sake was a perfect touch on a super cold night. We love this place.

There were people moving about the restaurant without masks on, and the staff did not say anything to these customers. We waited a long time to place our sushi order and a long time to receive our sushi, over an hour from when we ordered. I will do takeout next time.

Understanding that covid is a thing but going to restuarant where all you hear is heels of people walking above you and then to have a server that in order to pay attention to you, you have to get up from your table and grab him. Then on top of it the sushi was dry, and gross. Spent $70 and all we ate was our appetizer. Needless to say we will never return!
