“Great food and service in the busy waterfront”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

We went on a wet and cloudy day so didn't sit outside although a few brave people did. It was fairly busy and as we hadn't booked we were lucky to have a nice table with a bit of a view. the food was good and so was the service. We saw some really good looking platters of sushi being served to others. We had ordered seared tuna steak and deboned beef ribs. My father thought the ribs looked small but because of no bones there was plenty to eat and the tuna was delicious.

“Off day I hope ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Having had many superb business dinner experiences at one of my long time favorite local eating places, I brought some friends around today. Boy, was I disappointed. Shifted around from table to table despite having a reservation and then to be subjected to near non existent service on a surprisingly quiet evening was an embarrassment to say the least. The manager, Jarryd, apologized afterwards. I hope these are not early signs of erosion of the normally high standards of Sevruga.

“Delicious Food and Well Served”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

We loved this restaurant! We ate sushi as well as hot foods. The sushi was incredibly fresh and very delicious. The hot dishes we ate were classically African and very delicious. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. We would highly recommend this restaurant!

“Over priced bad service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

Extremely average sushi at crazy prices, bad service. Menus were filthy and weren't even wiped with cloth. Menus need replacing.

“Good but certainly not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Dinner with friends, food wasn't bad but the service was terrible. A busy Saturday night I'd expected a lot more from this restaurant. The starters of sushi and squid were great, once our mains arrived which wasn't bad we decided to not stick around for desserts.

Our waiter Hans which we had to keep reminding of his duties, leaving the menus on the table, not clearing one set of used plates. Then knocked my wifes drink over and didn't even replace it or even change the wet table cloth.

Certainly won't be returning, only reason we went was due to us not getting a table at Harbour House opposite.
