Description: A stylized sort of nautical setting, USS Nemo's cool, comfortable blue interior gives one just a hint of the old "Voyage to the Bottom of Sea" motif with round brass portholes and a mock periscope, or "eye peeper thing," as Kylie called it. The menu definitely appeals to those with a taste for the exotic as it successfully marries a seafood cornucopia with Asian cuisine. The service is impeccable and the entrees are styled in drop-dead gorgeous fashion. The Bento Boxes are marvelous conversation starters. Even the pickled ginger is made to look like a piece of art. Salmon Pie is an elegant affair that elicits "Oohs" and "Ahs" as it arrives so picturesquely presented. The salmon is wrapped in phillo dough and stuffed with mushrooms, spinach and dill sauce - a true taste sensation next to a side salad topped with a tropical fruit medley. It's easy to see why USS Nemo is popular with the going places crowd. And don't forget to try the Sake Bar. We also have an extensive wine list.

My husband and I have dined here several times, the Sea Bass is amazing, truly have never had a bad meal at this establishment. Staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. Restaurant is small in size, but BIG in flavor.

Yes, it's crowded and it's noisy. But we made reservations and were seated on time. The hostess was super friendly and made accommodations for my elderly mother. Our waiter was very aloof but with a little nudge from the hostess became the perfect server.
This restaurant is a gem in a strip mall. You may eat inside or outside weather permitting.
But this place is all about the food. That is why why there are lines to get in and reservations are needed weeks in advance. From the salads to the entrees-all fabulous. With just enough tweak to enhance but not over-power the main item.
i would give this restaurant an Excellent rating but for the close, noisy atmosphere and the lethargic waiter. The food was EXCELLENT and worth the small problems.

My golf group goes to USS Nemo every year during our trip to Naples -- the menu is diverse and very interesting, and the food is consistently very good. Despite always being mobbed at dinner time during the high season, the service is excellent -- it is clear that the owners know how to run a popular restaurant. Nemo's specializes in seafood (for example, they serve excellent tuna steaks made with sushi-grade tuna), but I had the duck this time and one of my friends had a steak -- both were very good. There is a decent-sized and reasonably priced wine list available. This is a very well-run restaurant with reliably good food. However, MAKE A RESERVATION or you are likely to have a long wait.

We enjoyed excellent seafood at USS Nemo. Good grouper mixed grill. All items are a la carte which makes it pricey. Reservations are a must. Tables are very tight and close together. Good service.

We dined here based on a recommendation from a local businessperson. It was outstanding!!
Started off with great bread and a little dish of humus and sushi type vegetables ie pickled ginger.
We started with Temptura Shrimp their specialty. Our entrees were the nut crusted Mahi Mahi and Tuna western style. I ordered the tuna rare at the suggestion of our waiter. It was outstanding. This was an outstanding restaurant. I would suggest you get a reservation, we did not have one and ate outside which was very pleasant. Inside we would have had to wait for over 2 hours. This was a Friday, but go there and get a reservation!!
