Great experience with my mom and younger sister. Our waiter was really attentive, and the food was really good. The ambiance was also great - the decor looked excellent, and the lighting tied the whole look together. However, my only complaint is the value. We ordered 4 rolls, probably six orders of sushi, three soups, two drinks, and two desserts, and the bill ended up being just short of $200.

We had a great dinner at Fushimi on a busy Saturday night. A big part of our dining experience was the hospitality and service offered by our bartender Ada. Some of us did not know a lot about Asian cuisine and Ada recommended a lot of terrific dishes and took the time to explain all the popular menu options. The food was fresh and well presented. We will be back !

I asked for a quiet table in advance and we were seated at a booth in the front next to a window. That was perfect for us. We wanted to talk without being distracted by music or loud talking. The service was excellent. The booth where we sat was comfortable and the table was roomy. The food was excellent. The timing of the delivering the food was excellent. We went early -- at 6pm on a Saturday night.
I was concerned that there would not be enough vegetarian options on the menu but that turned out not to be a problem. My guests were both vegetarians and they both found some vegetarian food to order. And they told me that they enjoyed dining at Fushimi.
I highly recommend this restaurant. But I would avoid going to that party room in the back of the restaurant if you want quiet environment. When I went to the restaurant the first time, it was too noisy because we were seated in the party room in the back.

The sushi was prepared well. Good presentation, fresh seafood.
However the wait staff had little knowledge of the menu, couldn’t make recommendations, and although they were very polite lack of knowledge about the menu was disappointing.
Overall a good dining experience although the prices approach Manhattan prices it is still a good place to try.

Fushimi never disappoints: freshest sushi, great variety of sushi and other entrees. Standouts are : Rock Shrimp Tempura,, Lobster Bisque Soup, Filet Mignon and the Crab Cakes with Shrimp.
For sushi: California Roll and the Paradise Rolls are delicious.
Great ambience and cozy atmosphere.

Good dinner over all. The food was flavorful and filling. The sushi is definitely very fresh. In sharp contrast to a very friendly and amazing bartender, it felt that the table serving staff lacked enthusiasm. I'll be back for the food alone, I hope service will be more personable next time.

Saturday night dinner at Fushimi. Usually I go to Tao or Buddakan for Asian fusion cuisine but my friends insisted we stay local and we did. I really want to like this restaurant as the food quality is there compared to the local Asian eatery competition, but every time I visit the service gets worse and worse. The positives first: the clown of a manager/maitre d' at the door, who starred in his own bad humor comedy show last time I visited, was either off or got fired - congratulations Fushimi for doing the obvious, that man's snobby attitude was costing you business. Kudos. Now on to the not so great. Our waitress was either inexperienced, lacked English language proficiency, or quite possibly lacked both. Multiple errors on the order taking and food delivery timing. Oftentimes another waiter stepped in and we had to repeat the order twice for food and drinks. Management was absent and never checked on us. My recommendation is that if you don't mind subpar service from incompetent waiting staff that barely speaks any English on a good day, the food is ok. Otherwise do yourself a favor and drive to the city for a truly hospitable Asian dining experience.

Restaurant is very good if you want really good sushi, everything that they bring out is fresh, and the staff is pretty awesome. They remembered my drink from the weeks prior, and also what I ate which I thought was impressive. When I get service like that it always makes me want to come back. The energy level in the place is not high energy however it’s perfect enough for a date or if you just want to go out and have sushi. I love the spot, I would totally keep going back

3 stars, to be generous! This is so NOT authentic Japanese. I would say it’s more Americanized Chinese presented in a sushi form. The waiters were nice, the service overall good.
The seating is weird, no privacy, and I had to listen to this guy who couldn’t shut up.

This place has a lot to learn about the meaning of hospitality. Cold reception. Walked in, the hostess was too busy texting on her smartphone to notice us and acknowledged our presence only after being prompted to do so - she seemed to be annoyed that we interrupted her phone texting marathon. The host/maitre d' standing next to her either has the worst sense of humor in the world or he tries too hard to come off as a smartass. Neither of them made an effort to at least pretend to be friendly. The table service probably read the same service handbook as the reception desk. The waiter lacked any sort of personality and his disposition ranged from perfunctory to indifferent. No introduction, no recommendations or suggestions. He didn't follow up to check on the dinner progress and we had to flag somebody twice to provide us with and change our silverware. At the end the bill came and the recommended gratuity list reached up to 30%. Was that meant to be a joke? One and done experience. This is your local generic run-of-the-mill Asian take-out food joint with more pomp and glitter thrown in as a dressing on top.

My family and I have been going to Fushimi for about a decade. Although they've still maintained their great atmosphere/decor, the food just isn't as good. Calimari was very tough (but they were courteous enough not to charge us for it when I mentioned that we didn't care for it), the rock shrimp app was dry (usually has a nice amount of delicious sauce on it), and my son's lobster in his surf and turf was dry as well (they could at least brush it with some butter). All in all, we definitely won't be back. Bummer, time to find a new Japanese restaurant....

I expected the restaurant to be prepared for the valentine’s day volume. They didn’t seem to be at all, the wait to be even approached by the waitress was about 15 mins. Unacceptable.

The sushi was great, I wouldn’t recommend anything else. Their specialty is sushi

The aromatic duck salad was fantastic. Nicely dressed with duck and candied pecans and fresh, fresh greens. Excellent. Also always get the veggie spring rolls. Light and crispy. Tried the surf and turf roll (a special) and it was great - shrimp inside and seared filet mignon outside. We shared some sushi as well. The bbq eel sushi is the best I have ever had. Definitely recommend this place. The décor is a a little over the top with Geishas and sumo wrestlers, but we love the food and keep going back.

So let me begin by saying I love Fushimi's menu but I must say the bay ridge location is lacking the service and presentation that you should be experiencing. If you want to experience the full ambiance of this great menu YOU MUST GO TO THE WILLIAMSBURG LOCATION !! There you will be treated with top notch service as well as the presentation of ur meal and also a nicer ambiance. For some strange reason the food just taste better in Williamsburg. I have also tried one of the Staten Island locations but not yet the tottenville one as of yet. And from my observations Williamsburg is the best.
