If you want the best authentic Japanese... this is THE place. Very limited seating affords personal attention from Chef Kevin Cory (Google him, he's one of the best chefs) and his staff. Exceptional food and service. If you think Japanese food is simply sushi, then study up a bit before going. It's pricy, but well worth the experience. Loved it!

At $200 per person, we expected top rated sushi and sashimi with a great overall experience. Not the case! The food was good but not great with as much or more Non fish items then one would expect. The reviews we read were good but it Was a mistake to come here. Go elsewhere for high level sushi. The best... More

If you were experience of sushi is a California roll with some electric green wasabi, then you need to come to NAOE. This restaurant elevates sushi to an experience of the senses. Subtle flavors mixed with interesting smells are all presented as a feast for the eyes. Chef Cory's team are intimately knowledgeable about every aspect of the meal. They... More

My husband and I were very pleased to have chosen Naoe for my birthday, it was a very special evening. We have had upscale Japanese in NYC and Japan many times over the years and Naoe so far we think is the best in the US. We sat at the counter (only 6 people and no more. Had the Omakase... More

Is basically an experience. One of the two best sushi restaurants I been and probably you won't find those flavors even in Japan . That said : my suggestion is that they should have wines. They only have sake and beer.

Have been here 3 times. In my opinion, it is probably the only restaurant in Miami that would have a Michelin star if the company would come. Phenomenal seafood brought from all over the world. Very attentive staff. It is expensive but so worth it (but you will be full) You need reservations, at least 1 week in advance

Amazing night, superb food, excellent service! It was a culinary journey through Chef Kevin Cory's country! Sushi on whole different scale. Service was above and beyond! Experience I would recommend if in Miami! Note if you are not an adventurous foodie then this is not for you!
