“I am a regular”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2008

I frequent this place all the time and its not because its the best sushi I ever tasted, because its not. However, I like the idea of being able to pick your own food floating right in front of you and not rely on waiter/waitress to get it to you sooner or later. The selection of sushi varies hour by hour but you can always special order something from the chef. The prices are very good! However, the edamame is dry and I wouldn't touch it. And the wait can be long in the evenings, especially on the weekends.

Really good and fun. But the cool thing is, I saw Eric Idle there, and since I am a huge Monty Python fan, I nearly wet myself. If it has been Terry Jones, I probably would have died a little inside... in a totally good way.

I've never had a bad experience at Afloat. I go to this restaurant all the time and the food is good and it's not expensive.
