Our food took 2 hours to arrive ! Our server was apologetic and told us that the kitchen was prioritizing “to go “ orders . This is absurd! We didn’t even get water refilled unless we sought it out ourselves . Additionally, once sushi arrived..., they didn’t even make one of our orders . We ended up cancelling it bc it would have been another hour . Terrible and will never go back ! The sushi itself was fine , nothing special but not bad !More

Tried this place the first night we stayed at the Marriott Not great start 4-5 servers stood around while we waited to be seated, eventually the guy behind the bar reminded them we were standing beside them so we got seated. The rolls we tried...were not good, the fish tasted watery with terrible texture The Tuna Poke Salas was 90% rice. The chicken legs were good but how do you make a sauce out of Kim Chee that's almost white, no taste. Whoever does the rice did a god job. Come on Marriott why do you allow such a poor quality restaurant operate in you facility.More

Worst sushi I ever had. I prefer no star if I can. The fish was taste less and not fresh at all. This was not cheap at all except in taste.

Additionally, the sushi menu was lacking in choices. While the food was quite good, the service underwhelmed as the entrees were brought out on top of the appetizers.

Minimum menu and average sushi. My wife liked it more than myself, but neither of us wanted to go back.

We stayed at the marriott for the whole week but only ate here once, big mistake - we should have eaten there several times. The sushi was prepared fresh and with great service. I think our server name was Margarite. We had two rolls -...8 slices in a roll, which was perfect for a light lunch. Flavorful, if you love sushi, you'll love thisMore

We had a sushi roll and drinks while sitting at the bar. There is also table service. The sushi was wonderful: fresh and tasty. The drinks were inventive (also tasty). This place is located in the Marriott Ocean Club which has lots of parking and...is right on the beach.More

Even with the many changes over the years, Jerry continues to be fantastic. His artful presentations, and suggestions make the Sushi menu a delight. His hard work with the team make the Lobby Bar ( formerly Ketsu) a destination not to be missed while in...Aruba.More

Very good sushi, and the Miso soup tastes just like it does in Japan. I really liked having this so close to my room and so handy!

Katsu is located in the lobby, but it doesn't feel that way. Nice bar with some seating around it with bar height tables. We started with drinks, I had a cosmo which was great and the waiter recommended a local beer that my husband enjoyed....We started with a flatbread as an app and it was very good. I had the tuna poke that was so good and had so much tuna on it I was blown away. I loved it. My husband had two rolls that he loved too. I recommend this if you like sushi.More
