Nice experience. Went as a family, like the other reviews... It was a little expensive but worth it. Would visit again.

“Great Sushi...a bit expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014 via mobile

Very nice ambience. Great Sushi. Service a little bit slow. Great White Sangria. I'm not going to lie. Expensive. But one deserves a little splurge once in a while....

Dear Frances:

Thanks for your recent review of our restaurant and your excellent rating you gave us!

As we always state, our prices are not cheap compared to our competitors. We received weekly the freshest Sushi Grade seafood directly from Boston and California. Our competitors just serve standard seafood, not Sushi Grade as us! That is why you would have noticed it in the flavor and ingredients!

Regarding service, we are sometimes slow because we prepare all our dishes at the moment upon the request and order from the customers. That is our Bushido Way!

Thanks again and I hope to see you soon again!

“Bad quality of food!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

This place looks very nice. The employees are very nice and overall they have good service. The appetizers and the salads are good, nothing ordinary. The sushi is awful. Not as good as i was waiting it to taste. I orders salmon skin, the served me salmon bacon. It was over cooked, and this is not supposed to be cooked at all... Anyway the manager said that i didn't have a taste for good sushi, that was rude. It is too expensive for what it really is. I will never visit this place in my life.

Dear Miko4n:

First of all, we apologize for your past experience at our restaurant.

Before we respond appropriately, I would like to inquire about your selection of Salmon Skin. You are stating that is not supposed to be cooked, but frankly we haven't seen that ever. Are you by mistake did not order another selection?

Salmon Skin is prepared with the fish skin and baked, thus the "bacon" statement you are referring to. It is supposed to be crispy and cooked.

Thanks anticipated for your reply in order to answer correctly.

“Good sushi but expensive!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

This review is for Dorado. The service was excellent and always has been. The place is very nice but the ambience is kind of dull. The last two times the place has been nearly empty and there was no music or anything, simply us. The sushi was good but I can not say it's the better that I have in PR. Regarding cost let me share with you our bill, 1 Edamame, 3 rolls (Ciara, Caribbean and Mariachi), one order of ribs and 2 virgin strawberry frappes. The total was $123.69, as you can see the place is pricey.

Dear Lila450:

Thanks for your recent review regarding our restaurant Ikebana Sushi Bar - Dorado.

We reviewed your comment that the total bill was expensive. Just to clarify that when you refer to the total bill, it includes the 7% sales tax and the 15% gratuities. Our sushi menu range from $6.95 for the more traditional rolls to $21.95 which are the most elaborate with three or more sushi ingredients.

On your next visit to Ikebana Dorado, please ask for Mr. Sidney Lockhart, our Restaurant Manager. He will appreciate your feedback and I'm sure he will extend some courtesy from our Sushi Chef!

Thanks anticipated.

“Best sushi in PR!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Everything is excellent. Simply the BEST sushi in the island. Caribbean Rolls and Ikebana Rolls are amazing. Their selection of fresh ingredients is impressive as it is their final combination in every plate.
