So over rated

Not a happy to see you face when we arrived. OK, we did not have reservations, but did not mean to bother the hostess. Service at the bar was good, thankful that we got a hightop there.

This restaurant is located in the Santa Maria Suites complex. It's a nice option to have after a busy day of trekking up and down Duval Street.

My wife and I enjoyed a very fine dinner here - unexpectedly it became one of our best Asian/sushi experiences anywhere. The menu is huge and the drink lists were solid as well. Many different types of options and we had 5 different courses served to us on a large platter - it was super. Highly Recommend!

We love eating sushi and this restaurant had some of the best we've tasted. The tuna sushi is excellent. Order the big sushi boat/bridge for two - the selection is really nice.

A very good experience all in all. Great service, good sushi and even better sashimi. Absolutely wonderful presentation of the food. The restaurant claims the authenticity of real Japanese origin, and I have no doubt to believe that. They prepared the sushi in the open, as it is supposed to be. Were ate there twice, once just before closing time,... More

We were not that familiar with Sushi but with the help of our great server, Jennifer, we were able to select some delicious food. My husband opted for beef, but I tried the selections Jennifer gave me, Sushi, and loved all of it. In fact, I had enough left to take back for my lunch the next day or should... More

Our first night in Key West started out with an incredible Sushi experience at Ambrosia. Since we had been up since 3:45am, we opted for an early dinner and were easily accommodated. Our server, Michelle, was barely able to serve us water before the power went out (a fairly common experience in Key West). Soon it was back on and... More
