    Pl8 is my new favorite sushi restaurant. The food is vibrant, fresh, timely and exciting. The atmosphere sets the mood for a perfect experience. The soups are hot and the sushi is delectable, well crafted and absolutely delicious. My server was knowledgeable, attentive and courteous. Pl8 should be your next sushi date spot! Check them out!!

    Service was fantastic. Food was awful. I am so bummer because we have enjoyed Pl8 for many years. I am not sure what changed. We might try again, but not sure.

    We always enjoy PL8, and last night was one of the best meals we’ve had there! The Fire Phoenix roll was amazingly delicious. It’s now our all time favorite roll! We also enjoyed our old fashioned and Manhattan. The drinks were mixed to perfection, and they were generous pours. Our sushi appetizer pieces were huge and fresh, and they were presented beautifully, and the sesame shrimp was plentiful and perfectly prepared!

    The wine list was s very small. There aren’t many choices. The food came out very fast and it was hot. I like to have a more leisurely meal. We were I and out in an hour
