Great sushi. . But it's time to do some renovations

I just finished having lunch here today, and while it was very good as always, the stains of soy sauce on the table cloths throughout the place and the condition of the fabric in the booths are totally gross. The booths are all torn up from years of usage & it's time to renovate. Also, the dust... read more

We went to Sake Cafe for a late lunch after walking to and around the garden district from the French Quarter (and being directed there from the Commanders Palace where we couldn't meet the dress code!). Service was very friendly and prompt. Food, on the other hand, was not very good. Possibly because we do not eat sushi, so it... More

We stop for a late lunch on Sunday. Used happy hour with good Sushi items. Service missed one Order, delayed a second, and refused to split bill finally. Worst service experienced ever.

We come to this place a lot and came here for dinner a couple of nights ago and we were very disappointed with the service. Our waitress was extremely rude. Trust me I am from the New York area and k know rude when I see it. This was really to a whole new level. The waitress never checked on... More

Great presentation but a little short on that wow taste factor. Ok menu items and very nice ambiance. It seemed pretty loud but had a good crowd. They have off-street parking as well. Might give it another try, might not.

My fiancé and I had come here for a nice lunch while exploring Magazine Street. Our server was amazing!! He was always on top of everything! It was like he was there before we could even ask for anything. The food was delicious and creative! It was also a very nice atmosphere to just relax and take your time. It... More

First, multiple restaurants with similar name so be sure that you're at 2830 Magazine. Beautiful restaurant with spectacular Murano glass light fixtures. Open sushi bar with about 6 chefs busily working away. Ordered the crab salad which was plentiful and good but almost too much mayo, the Rocky II roll and Tiger Roll. Huge serving on the Tiger Roll. All... More

I had lunch at Sakamoto Cafe today and I have to say I was less than impressed. The portions were smaller than 3 pectin though that may be something they do at lunchtime. The rice was almost wet and really detracted from the meal. The 'salad', though free, was very disappointing and the cooked tuna/salmon tasted and looked like someone's... More
