We happened on this place on a Sunday night during our vacation in St. Augustine. We followed the sound of music! The restaurant was very accommodating to us as we sat and listened to the one man show out in their patio. We had beers and edamame while listening to the music. The performer (Kevin Ski?) was really good and... More

The manager of this place was the most amazing and caring person. This was by far the best service and most fun atmosphere. They had live music outside, and it was outstanding! Food was great as well. We will definitely be coming back.

found this spot 3 years ago and returned again. Sushi is fantastic. Presentation is creative. For those willing to try something new this will not disappoint. Spy is an odd fit for St. Augustine's tourist district, but if sushi is to your liking, it's worth the stop. You'll have to go to Jacksonville, Orlando, or Melbourne to find something of... More

We appreciate the kind words. Sorry about the volume on the music. Our Manager on Duty should be checking with our guests to ensure the volume is appropriate. The dining pleasure of our guests is our first priority and we will always adjust the music down if requested. Thank you for your feedback. More

Sit either outside or upstairs and order sushi specialty rolls! Get the volcano roll, it's the best. Also a great place for a small group with the couches to sit in upstairs and they take reservations.

Enjoyed their eclectic menu of traditional and specialty sushi. They have a large courtyard area which looked very inviting - as it was a bit chilly on the evenign we went, we opted to sit at the sushi bar. Food was excellent. Service was very attentive.

Honestly, I try not to give bad reviews unless it is utterly deplorable and offensive. I am not even sure where to begin. The chef here seems to have quite the ego with his picture plastered on everything and the long drawn out description of his "experience" not to be missed. Methinks he is overcompensating for not knowing what the... More

We sat in the "private room" with the low lighted table and the most comfotrtable sofas ever. So much fun to have dinner this way! My daughters love sushi, and they just loved the different rolls. My mom and I had stir fry which was delicious! Very good quality all around, and I did not think the portions were small... More

They serve average good sushi and they are wayyy expensive. It was crazy. I can find many good sushi places and they would have better reasonable prices. However, if you want a fancy and private place, dine upstairs and you will enjoy the atmosphere. It is pretty nice. At that freezing night, it happens to be so cold upstairs far... More

I had the best sushi that I have ever had at Spy Global Cuisine. It was a party in my mouth. I cant recall what it was called, but it is their best seller specialty roll.

Couldn't decide on cuisine so decided to try this place. Sat at patio and had the Thai coconut curry chicken and a couple sushi rolls. Delicious. Also had a nice strong Mojito. Definitely recommend it.
