Very poor service! The waitress was very rude, I've never had such a bad experience in a restaurant before, I don't even know where to start. The food takes a long time to come out; she brings out the appetizer the same time as one of the entrees, so we had to wait another 15 minutes before the second entree... More

The Aki rolls were superb as was every piece of tender suchi we ordered. Some of the excellent rolled delicacies were spicy as advertised, others more plain loved by the young kids. The three adults took the $25 All You Can Eat Special where we discovered that the suchi chef was extremely generous with portions and in perfect proportion, too.... More

I ate here for lunch one weekday while at a conference in the city. I wanted sushi and their lunch menu drew me in. I have to say that the edamame, salad, and sushi that I got were tasty and I enjoyed the food, but the service ruined it for me. The restaurant was almost empty and my server was... More

I live very close by and was hoping for an amazing sushi restaurant to walk to. I was a little disappointed. For my first visit, I had a chicken teriyaki bento box. The quantity of food was impressive (and too much), but the chicken was overcooked. Everything else was good - but nothing stood out. Service was pretty poor as... More

I was sitting at the bar next to Melissa and enjoyed wonderful sushi and sake. The sushi was fresh and the servers were very friendly and fast. There was a all you can eat special which I enjoyed as I could keep ordering when I wanted more. The rule is that you must eat all you order. Not a problem... More

After a 9 hour international flight I like to have a healthy meal. In the US the only thing I can usually find is Sushi. After walking about for an hour I happened across Aki. The menu looked good and it seemed to have been a good value. I ordered Spicy Tuna rolls, Salmon rolls and Avocado rolls with a... More

I was so impressed with this restaurant on my first visit that I scheduled a department dinner here with over twenty people and they all loved it. Personally, I am a beef eater; however, I ordered the broiled blackened cod and I was amazed and glad I did. I was so impressed that I ordered the cod again. By the... More

My friend and I ate here while staying across the street. I had sushi and my friend had soup and salad...it was all delicious. The only downside was the service, kind of slow and not very attentive.
