“all about "fresh fresh fresh"”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

My husband and I dined recently @ Sushi Leblon. We had an early dinner and the place was very quiet. Sitting on the bar, we were able to see how neat were the food preparation. We had sashimi, sushi and rolls, all super fresh and well presented. Saturday night the place was very busy, no wonder as Sushi Leblon is considered one of the best Japanese restaurants in Rio de Janeiro.

“Pricy but very good sushi”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

This is one of the most famous sushi places in Rio, which will make it difficult to find a table on the busiest hours but it offers a delicious variety of sushis and sashimis as well as hot options. All the sushis we had were very well prepared and one could tell the freshness, for big groups the boats work well. Special mention to the octopus that was amazing.

“Great innovative fish foods.”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

I've have dinner here in 2005 and 2008. It's a long time ago and the prices must have doubled since then. But being interested and following the food press - although my preferences have changed - I can assure that SL is still the spot in Leblon for high-end sushi and service. They know how to treat their customers, so just lean back, be demanding and enjoy it.

“Great food, not-so-great service”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

The sushi selection is absolutely divine, and I especially enjoyed the salmon skin sushi and the chocolate tempura desert. One problem I had was that I saw the menu on the official website, but the waiters did not have any idea of the 'Suggestions' that I asked for.

I visited the restaurant as an individual, and was placed at the sushi bar. (Which is understandable for a solo guest) I waited fifteen minutes before I had to ask to be given a menu, and then another fifteen minutes before I had to ask to order. This was the case for a few other solo diners at the sushi bar. Whilst when they arrived, the waiters were very courteous and polite, they did seem more interested in serving the groups.
