Everything we ordered here, including sushi, Udon noodles, and chicken teriyaki was excellent. The service is sometimes a little slow, but it is well worth the wait. We plan to return!

Three strikes and you're out. I was hoping the bad service was just a one time event. They are seriously short staffed. The food is really good but it took 75 minutes from walking in the door to walking out the door. All I ordered was a beer and a sushi roll. The waitress never checked on me. I could... More

This is our third time coming since under new ownership. With each visit we've told ourselves... It will get better. Unfortunately it has not. This past visit will be out last. Basic orders were not taken, no one checked in with us after we received our food. Or waitress only realized there was an error about five minutes after my... More

We went to this restaurant months ago under a different name, and were concerned that with the name and ownership change, the quality would suffer. We need not have worried! The sushi is fresh, the menu has been updated and the service is great. This has proven to be one of our favorite restaurants in St. Pete.

We went to the Art of Sushi today for my Mum's birthday. I have not been since it changed ownership, and was extremely impressed. It has a charm about it which Sushi Rock Grill lacked, and Hook's still lacks. Food is brilliant, in taste and presentation. Also, the owner is courteous, funny, helpful, pleasant, and knowledgeable... and he's actually PRESENT.... More

We were greatly surprised by the quality of the food. We had the best sushi we ever had. The restaurant fully deserves its name the Art of sushi. Every piece of sushi we had was a culinary art. Highly recommend the place to anybody who loves the sushi but never had the real sushi before. The place is small but... More

they do hibachi and its great! The quality of sushi is very good. everything fresh and tasteful. I didn't hear and tried something similar before as hibachi sauces like goody and yummy plus orange sauce its tasteful and unique. Great Presentations though. We are regulars now. BTW they have happy Hour specials with great discounts.

We always hope when we try a new restaurant that we would find something outstanding in its offerings. Not here. Ordinary at best but popularly priced $$. We ordered a bento box plus both eel and soft shell crab maki rolls. We were served OK, hot miso soup followed by a large, well-dressed (a good ginger dressing) served ICE cold... More

We originally were headed to another popular sushi restaurant in St Petersburg, but as usual, could not get parking. We knew that Art of Sushi was across the street (I believe that it was formerly known as Sushi Rock), but never ventured in - until now. No reason to ever go back to "that other place". Upon entering the parking... More
