“Let Down”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

We were seated immediately since we called ahead to make reservations, but it took the waitress about 20 minutes to notice us- and it wasn't even OUR server.
I've eaten at a lot of sushi places and this spot was just sub par. The rice didn't taste right and the over all taste of the sushi was bland. The beef skewer was about the same. The only taste came from the sauce but the meat itself seemed pretty bland, though quite tender.
However, my husband had the yakisoba and seemed pleased with it. The atmosphere was nice but we felt ignored and cheated. Two sushi rolls, yakisoba, a soda, and beef skewers came out to $45.

“Good gadgets, disappointing food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

The interactive internet-style ordering system on the tables is lots of fun, but it doesn't compensate for a meal I didn't enjoy. Vegetable noodles tasted of salt and nothing else, salad so utterly drowned in dressing I couldn't eat it, cinnamon chicken smelled great, tasted of nothing.
Ice cream was very nice

“You've got to try their specialty sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

The 7th Heaven sushi is delicious! It includes a dipping sauce that I think is made with sweet chili & sesame oil. Their Angry Bird sushi is very good too. I also tried their Spicy Salmon and Spicy Tuna sushi. Can't wait to go back again.

“Was Okay...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

Met a friend for happy hour at SoHo. It was okay, but probably won't return. The cocktails were so-so, and the food was so-so...not worth the drive for me. I guess it serves the waterfront residents fine, but not worth the trip if commuting to the location. And the bill was ridiculous.
