“Nice laid back version of Sushisamba”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

The Park Avenue Sushisamba is in between the Miami one and the London one. Food is good as always, nice atmosphere less posh than London but less relax than Miami, good service, a great place to go and have a relax evening with friends...

“Fun, contemporary vibe with average food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

We usually go here when guests come in from out of town because it has a fun vibe but the food is okay. I keep hearing that the rooftop area is the best but we always end up on the bottom level. Service has never been great for us.

“hmm, food is ok. Service is slightly above average.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

I expected more to be honest. I've eaten great sushi from Thomo's (where the Japanese people go) and a million places on St Marks. This...not up there. I don't care how much you 'fusion' sushi, it doesn't make it instantly great tasting. No wow factor...but then they expect you to pay for the fact that there is one...maybe I missed it ?
