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.

Food is excellent, service is ok. The place is busy, cramped and loud. Really wanted a martini but in served Saki. I was told a Saki martini is awesome.....don't believe it. Yuk.

I am amazed that this restaurant gets such good reviews. We had a reservation for 7 pm. We arrived on time and had to wait until 745 for our table, which turned out to be outside (that's all they had). The table was rickety. The double bench chairs were chained to the ground (presumably to avoid theft?) so you had to slide into the seats and the table was just too close to the body. Appetizers were disappointing - Crab cakes were dry, seaweed trio salad had two seaweed portions that were inedible (one with an incredible fishy taste and the other just bland), the grouper that was supposed to be grilled with the sauce on the side came drenched in the sauce. The salmon dish also came drenched in sauce despite our asking no sauces. They brought our drinks late (I was already eating the main course). Don't they realize drinks are where the profits are made? Obviously they don't care. We chose not to have dessert or coffee. I don't understand the hype from the locals.

We took our daughter and son-in law out to dinner. Probably the best sea bass I've ever had in my life. Pair it with the 2012 Albariño... Perfect.

Went with a friend on a week night and the place was packed, we were able to get two seats at the bar. Reservations Recommended! We shared the tempura shrimp and it was very good, we both had the house special Miso Glazed Bass was excellent! Service was wonderful, the lady sitting next to it had the duck taco and loved it. It's a bit pricey, but worth it between the food and excellent service

Have been enjoying my favourite meals at the USS Nemo consistently for at least 7 years. The first time I went there for lunch I had the lobster trio dish which was amazing. Have had numerous dinner parties with guests from the world over and everyone always walks away happy! Good food, good service and an amazing selection of food and saki's!! Love that the owner's are Canadian too!!
