Should be renamed Sushishambles.......food great & our waiter was lovely but wow, absolute chaos! Food order wasn’t taken until we pushed it & kitchen clearly can’t cope with the number of covers the restaurant has. We were a party of 5 though were fed as a party of 1 and two separate parties of 2, none of us ate together. Part of the order never arrived & the 18% service charge was a kicker. Our waiter was trying hard to do a good job, the manager not so much. Shame as food was good

Food wasn’t as good as it used to be. And our table had stains on it. Which were old stains that seeped into the finish. Looked almost like black mold. Otherwise, service from Tatyana was fantastic. Don’t blame the help here. Blame the management.

Smelled like a frat basement and everything seemed to have a post-spring-break coating.

Needs a good top to bottom cleaning!

Food quality was solid, nonetheless.

We love the energy level of Lincoln Road and love sushi. However, we thought that it was OK compared to other sushi restaurants-the menu was very limited and did not have what we expected from the popular restaurant.

We were a group of 10 and had an amazing time! Our waiter designed our menu so we got to try a bit of everything. Food was amazing and it was so nice not having to pick out menu items. Great value - would go back again!

They told us if we wanted sushi it would be a minimum of 45 minute wait. This is not the first time this is happened at this restaurant. Very disappointing going to a sushi restaurant and not being able to order sushi and less you want to wait 45 minutes minimum.

Overpriced for very average food. We sat outside, chairs were metal and “screeched” like fingernails on a chalkboard when you moved. Server kept getting lost. Dinner items were served quickly but then we had to wait forever for dessert. Only plus was that it was Lincoln road.

Sushi Samba is one of our favorite restaurants in Miami. We constantly have an excellent service and delicious sushi. However yesterday the service was not good. Our waitress was in a rush all time and she didn’t pay attention to us (i.e. she didn’t show us the dessert menu or it took 15 min to get the check). The good thing is that Enrique, gave us 20% of discount when we explained what happened.

The food was okay, not spectacular. Our server forgot half of our order so we were still hungry when we left and it took forever for the food he did place to come to our table. 18% gratuity is automatically added but with the poor service i refused to pay for that. Manager said system does not allow them to remove gratuity but he gave us a comp on the food bill to make that up

Disorganized. Place not crowded but stress level high among service. Servers surround bartender while he struggles to read the orders without glasses with no bar back. Simple sushi orders take upwards of 20-30 minutes with sushi bar staffed with 4-5 people most not working. 3-5 people huddle around hostess stand doing nothing

I’ve been to SUSHISAMBA many times. It’s obvious the ownership has changed hands. The quality was poor, serving sizes were small and decor is very dated. My suggestion is avoid this tourist trap

My boyfriend and I have been to SUSHISAMBA in Miami a few times a year, every year for the last 5 years. Yesterday, the quality of the food has gone down drastically. The Rock shrimp appetizer had no taste and was over cooked. Our special chef maki barely had any salmon in it and extremely thick rice. The toro and the taquitos were the only positives.

Not sure why they can't assign tables effectively. After 20 minutes of sitting at our table (one of about 5 filled at that time of night), I had to go over to the desk to ask for service. The waitress who came over told us it was not her table but she would take care of us, which she did effectively. During our wait, there was a gentleman who looked like he might be the manager outside about 20 feet from us having a great time joking around with the male waiters. How hard is it to effectively assign and monitor table service??? The food here is good, not great, and South Beach expensive (very). It's a shame there are very few restaurants on Lincoln Road that deliver the entire package of service, quality, and value. Sushi Samba does not.
