disappointing considering the hype

Our waiter was good, not great. Our food was fine, not fantastic. This place is all about reputation and lacks substance to make it really worthwhile. I think there are better places in Rio.

Only spot I found any japanese beer but maybe I wasn't looking in the right places. Sat at the bar, told the chef make whatever he wants. Was a little pricy, as expected for a special order but I would say the quality is on par with plenty of good but not excellent places in the Bay Area. That's saying... More

If bad service is what you like this is the place to go. As we waited for our table we ordered 4 caipirinhas and three of them were served without sugar, when we told the hostess, instead of having new drinks made for us, she gave us packets of sugar. We sat at an outdoor table and our waiter came... More

A place to wonder, what will they think of next? Shark sashimi, other exotic ideas, it is all possible at this wonderful place with a terrace to make you chill in peace.

Great Sushi, very good service. Compared to other meals in Brasil, good value (paid a fortune for miserable food in miserable places). Downside is the long waiting time but we were there during carnaval.

we passed the restaurant the previous evening and saw a huge line and figured it must be good food. Tried to make a reservation from our hotel the next day but were told no reservations accepted and we have to land up at the door. We went early and asked for a table. We were told that the wait is... More

We had a great night at sushi Leblon. We waited for about 30 minutes for a table but they served drinks to us outside. We were sat at the bar which was great as we had view of the chefs preparing the food. Phenomenal Japanese - we really loved it. It is expensive but in my opinion worth it!!

This is one of the most fashionable places in Rio, with long lines outside every night and reservations hard to get. But I and my Japanese wife were quite disappointed with the sushi, the brusque and speedy service, the prices and even the ambience (which suggests more of a made-over coffee-shop than the elegance and quiet minimalism we associate with...
