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!

I had wanted to visit this place for a while and took the opportunity to go with a fellow foodie. You may spend a long time looking for NAOE as it is very tough to find, but you will spend a lifetime trying to equal it. From the chef and his staff, to the tea services, to the knock your... More

The best Japanese food you can imagine, served with love from a passionate and kind service stuff in a private atmosphere. This is more than food, this is art! A one of a kind place! Outstanding!

Private and peaceful setup. Essential as in the Japanese traditions. Chef Cory is simply concentrated on the food is cooking for you as all the chefs around him. Quality of food is very high and overall is the best sushi and sashimi I have tried out of Japan. He cooks for 8 guests max and you can spend hours looking... More

This was like going to a broadway show where it starts and everyone has a role, our host's were very friendly and very good! and knew everything we asked them, this is like no other restaurants we have gone to , you eat for 2 hours from a bento box full of fish and other goodie's to single sushi, i...

NAOE isn't for everyone. It's expensive and it's exacting in the experience offered. You pretty much have to give up your options and place your fate and trust in the hands of Chef Kevin Cory. But for the few who treat an exceptional meal as the equivalent of dropping hundreds on theater (or some other event) -- and you like... More

This was a tru dining experience. Although we visited many years ago the experience was truly memorable. The food is very challenging but really worth experiencing if you enjoy this type of thing. We really didn't have one plate that had an item we had eaten before...expensive, but fun!

As me and my dining companion left this restaurant we compared notes as to which of our family members we could bring to such a meal. We decided 50% would love it, and 50% would be a little bit freaked out. 100% of us would have liked the service which was among the best I've had in dining across the... More

Naoe serves sushi, but it is not your average sushi restaurant. It serves a fixed-priced menu every night, and you will find yourself enjoying one of the best japanese meals you have ever had, from the bento box first course to the dessert, and the many many pieces of the best sushi in Florida in between. Everything from the dishes... More

The meal was like a spiritual journey. You could have heard a fly on the wall. We were 6 in this small restaurant that can take 12. The chef was quietly working at each piece we would soon savour. 3 people to serve us. Every movement, every bite, every detail: perfection. The best Sake ever: just silk in the mouth.... More
