The prices have increased considerably. Extremely loud even at reduced capacity. The online menu is cumbersome to get to having to scroll through various pages, including ads. They obviate by giving you paper menus, which is the thing we want to avoid to begin with...

Horrible experience, extremely rude staff. We left and did not even have a full meal. We dined outside and it started pouring rain, because of that our food got cold and wet naturally. I had 1 bite of my meal. Everyone sitting outside was moved inside where delivery people were allowed in and out without masks. Our food was left sitting on the bar out in the open. After 10-15 minutes while waiting out the rain to stop a staff person asked us if we want to continue to wait for the rain to stop so we can eat our food or have our food wrapped up an leave. We asked for new food since ours was rained on and sitting in the open, it naturally got cold. The staff person was extremely rude and said so us "so you dont want your food?" He was so angry that we asked for food that did not get rained on and wasn't sitting out to get cold. I couldn't believe a restaurant expected us to eat food like that, especially for the prices they charge. he argued with us and we paid for what we did eat (apps & drinks) and left. Will never go here again.

My two friends and I come here alot. It's usually very good. We always make a reservation, but this time we had to stand and wait like 10/15 mins when we got there and then they had to ask a couple to move to the adjacent table so they could push two tables together to set a table for us 3, which I felt bad for the couple about. One of us has celiac disease and cannot eat any gluten. They are usually very good here about that but our waitress seemed extremely knowledgeable about it this time which was worrisome. We often have a thin dark haired girl (I wish I remembered her name!!) Who is so great with explaining what does and doesnt have gluten and already knows to bring the tamari and tell the chefs. Shes great. I'll have to get her name next time, hopefully she still works there! Anyway, this time here was just okay, but it was valentine's day so possibly the busy evening caused the wait and the lack of attention to the allergy. Usually we love the place. The food was still great, but we got dirty martinis and they needed way more olive juice - it tasted like straight vodka and wasnt that great.

Great date night! Ambiance was very chill and romantic and they were playing 80s music that went with it. We went for restaurant week and LOVED the appetizers, entrees were solid, and lovee the mochi! Beautiful time

Sushi Lounge always has great special rolls. I went for restaurant week and the sushi was really good. I enjoyed the yellowtail hamachi the most! While the food was great, I had 2 different martinis and they were just so so. I think they might have to re-do the martini menu. I just didn't find much to be that exciting on the martini list. The service was good but sometimes it was hard to find a server since we sat upstairs.

I've been here a few times. First time was great, second time I sat at the bar and I swore it was a different experience entirely. I ordered the same thing both times (hibachi and sushi). The first time it was great, second time for some reason the food did not taste fresh. We sat at the sushi bar and I was sadly disappointed with the hibachi that day. I suggest sitting for dinner at a table, in my experience the service is better.

We haven't been to the Hoboken Sushi Lounge in over a decade but wanted to take our 5 year old to the place where we had many of our first dates. To our delight, many of our favorite rolls and martinis remained on the menu, but the real surprise was how sweet they were with our daughter! Our server was so awesome and got her plain white rice, a plain grilled chicken breast, and even a little container of agave (we requested honey, guessing they wouldn't have it, and the server came up with that perfect substitute). Our daughter is already asking when we get to go back!

So I have been to Sushi Lounge in Hoboken probably 15 times in the past 10 years. Saturday was my first time there in about a year. They were not busy but “our waitress was.” I had to find another waiter/waitress three times because she was busy chatting with the bartender. And the sushi overall was good...and this was upsetting because it used to be great. It was also kind of just thrown on my table and they didn’t even tell us which roll was which being that we ordered 5 rolls and they always used to do that and most places do it as well. Anyway I hope it was a bad experience this time however I could also tell there was no management on site and they just wanted us out

Love this place in the daytime but not when Sushi Lounge becomes Sushi CLUB after 6pm. Music was too loud for talking to a date (maybe a good thing? Good sushi and service though.
