    We are from Canada and when we come down to Miami, this is one of our goto places. My children love it and want to make reservations before we get here. We are all sad to learn that our Sunday was the last day to enjoy such and amazing establishment. It will be closing down for good at Lincoln road. Thanks for the great food, staff and memories. All the best to the staff in their future endeavours. Hopefully there will be another location in the future.

    I’ve been dining at this restaurant for the past decade even before I moved down to Miami and this was the first time I was disappointed with the place. We came to dine in a Wednesday evening and come to find out they were out of the west coast oysters. I thought that was odd considering how known they are for their raw bar. I then ordered the infamous Umami Maki roll and was told 5 minutes later that that we’re out of wagyu. I can understand if this happened on a Friday or Saturday when the place is jammed packed and busy but it was a slow Wednesday night.

    Another great meal at Sushi Samba SoBe! The seabass anticuchos and rock shrimp are our favs, along with the samba split and chocolate cake. Many thanks to Diego for the warm hospitality and great service. We are so sad they are closing in December

    Such a let down! Reserved Sunday brunch. Place was empty, depressing and servers didn’t give a dam.., as 18% is added automatically to the bill. Service was atrocious ! Food was ok but quantity made it super expensive. In short - don’t go there.

    Literally my favorite restaurant of all time. It’s my first time in Miami and I’m from New York and I used to go to their location but it closed down so my number one wish list had to be done thing was to visit this restaurant.. and although the Sambajuice wasn’t great, everything else was just as amazing and fantastic and delicious as I remembered it from back home. Really wish they would open up again!

    The food was disgusting. Ordered a rock shrimp tempura. From the time I ordered to it being brought to the table must have been less than 2 mins. It was revolting. The edamame tasted over or under cooked

    In Europe we love Sushi Samba. We chose for the Miami Spice menu, but felt a bit disappointed. It was comparable with a kids menu unfortunately. The look and feel of this place is very dated. Needs a redesign. Very kind people tho.

    Simply disappointed with our choice of sushi. After visiting Amsterdam’s restaurant, this restaurant did not provide the same flare and menu was not as interesting. Portions were small for value. Did not feel we got our money’s worth.

    Jason is an absolute wonder and his team is fantastic! In particular, we had Yasmina and we've never had a more attentive and genuine waitress. Jason and Yasmina are the reason we come to Sushi Samba religiously. Without them, the experience would not be the same and honestly speaking, they are the best that South Beach has to offer! Also, try the Tuna Tartar if it's on the menu when you visit, it's delicious!

    Food was OK not worth the price. However on a bill over $300 and they added items we didn't order and had to argue with the manager to remove. Didn't apologize for their mistakes just made excuses and still tried to make us pay for extra items
