Great sushi and cocktails

Stopped here to grab a bite during happy hour: had peachtini and bellini 2x1 as well as 3 rolls: Naruto, Sake II and New Orleans roll. All 3 well executed, fresh, tasty and original. We paid for all 55$. The price was also very good. Highly recommended!

Sake on Magazine Street, at the edge of the beautiful Garden District of New Orleans, is a high quality Japanese restaurant. The food is great, well served, the service kind and professional, the price very reasonable. High quality, high value.

The sushi at Sake can be fabulous! This is a very specific review of not just lunch but the Bento box lunch.I have come in more than once for this amazing deal and I am writing to remind myself: "too good to be true" IS always, in fact, too good to be true. This is a ton of delicious-sounding food... More

The Rocky II is what I had and it was very flavorful. At the end of the meal I had their Tempura cheesecake. It taste like they battered it in pound cake then fried it. Talk about Mmm..Mmm good!! Server gave great service and the manager stopped by to see how everything was. 5 stars for sure. I will be... More

Very good Sushi! I had the Spicy Yellow Dragon. The shrimp fried rice looked great. No complaints here. Great place for lunch.

We were visiting New Orleans and toured the Garden District. We assumed that in such a upscale neighborhood you get upscale food. WRONG! The waitress run back and forth between taking our order and answering phone calls and delivering plated and food. RUDE!!! We ordered bento boxes, noodles and edamame. It took 45 minutes to get salad, miso soup and... More

I ate here with my family on our trip to New Orleans, and I have to say this place was great. The atmosphere is spectacular -- great ambiance, with lovely colorful glass chandeliers. The food is excellent as well -- the salad was very fresh, the goat cheese dumplings were sumptuous, and my teriyaki chicken was literally steaming on a... More

My girlfriend and I had been exploring the Garden district and were starting to get peckish. We had seen a sushi restaurant earlier in the day that had a sign out for their happy hour. We were attempting to find that one when we stumbled on the Sake Cafe, which coincidentally had a happy hour going on when we walked... More

I really liked this sushi place. I think their fish was fresh and their service was good. I have had more authentic sushi experiences, but this was very good as well! My boyfriend considers this his favorite sushi restaurant in the world, and he orders the same thing every time: Mountain Tuna x2.

Somehow, our group ended up here for happy hour. I'm not sure how or why, but it was a very pleasant surprise. Drinks were 2-for-1, so we ordered a few rounds of a variety of cocktails. The drinks were sweet, but for the price were more than worth it. The service was somewhat quick, and the ambiance was very unique,... More
