“Good quality food, good price!”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

The food was pretty good here. We only had to pay around $150 for 5 people. I love their beef tongue and mango paradise sushi. I will definitely come back again.

“Mediocre at best”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

I ate at Ebisu on Robson for the first time last night. The service was very good - the waitstaff was very attentive. The menu is extensive and eclectic (think sushi, nachos, and sangria). There were four separate different menus, which was overkill and confusing. We ordered several sushi rolls, all of which were bland, and finished with chocolate cake which was just okay.

Vancouver has so many great Asian restaurants, there's no reason to settle for mediocre. Next time I'm in the area, I'll try a different sushi restaurant.

“Bunch of Thieves.”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

We are pretty certain one of their waitresses stole our camera. This restaurant is poorly lid clearly to assist their crimes. Lock up your personal belongings.

Obsideon, General Manager at Ebisu on Robson, responded to this review, November 2, 2012
I kindly request that you please refrain from accusing us of stealing any customer's belongings. We have been in business for over 6 years (part of Kamei Royale Group, a company that has been doing business for over 40 years in Vancouver) and we have a very long history of returning all items to happy customers that have forgot their belongings here. We have been known to return many new iPhones, wallets, jewelry, cameras, umbrellas and jackets all the time. We also have a Lost & Found that is stored in the office by our manager. We have even had a case where the manager personally dropped off a lost wallet at the Police Station because the owner did not return to pick it up for over a week. Regrettably we aren't able to control the loss of items that are left unattended due to the high flow of customer traffic that we get here on a nightly basis.
The lighting ambiance that is set here in the evening is to create a perfect Japanese dining lounge experience, rest assured it is not to "assist in any underground theft crimes" or anything of the sort. Many of our waitresses have been working here for years and would not resort to taking customers belongings at the risk of being fired.

“Good quality and fun place to be”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Great upper level spot on robson. The food is always fresh and nice to get a mix of different japanese varieties. sashimi and oysters are nice. the presentation was great and it is actually pretty good value for those things. the sushi rolls are on the higher side on the price but it is really good quality. i love the tiger mayo and the sashimi salad is awesome. It is a cool place as the music is bumpin' and TV screens throughout with sports playing. always a fun time with friends or even to take a date to. food is pretty much tapas style so it's nice to share everything.
