“Poor everything”
Reviewed November 23, 2011

Have been there before and it was good.Went back and brought our soon a sushi expert.The food last night was in one word POOR,On our way out we where told that my son had a T shirt with a number in the back and that was not adequate according to their "dress code"(he was also wearing shorts as other customers}( It is Florida !!!!).Of course this was after the meal,the check and the TIP;they certainly could have told us before all that!!!!!!!!.and we would have left????.At any rate have been there before and the FOOD was better.They are NOT consistent and that is a BIG MINUS for us>We will not be back,and will tell our friends about it.

“Best sushi in Sarasota.”
Reviewed June 14, 2011

I moved here from NY, and tried many sushi places that were recommended by locals. This is by far the best one around with the freshest fish and creative combinations. I wouldn't go anywhere else for sushi!

“Too Slow Service”
Reviewed April 4, 2011

I love Japanese food and lived in Japan for long time. Food was average, price was expensive, service was too slow (unacceptable for me). I will never go back.

“Great Night”
Reviewed December 17, 2010

Our friend had read a review of Vizen in the local paper and suggested we try it. We were not in a hurry so the slow pace was just fine for us. The food was fantastic! We each took a turn ordering and sharing. Think we went through a big chunk of the menu (black board) by the end of the night. It was pricey but the sushi was FANTASTIC.

We have gone to Siesta Key for years and I didn't know that whole area of restaurants existed. Will have to do a little more exploring now.
