One of the best Sushi restaurants on South Beach – This is a great Sushi restaurant. It seems to always have fresh and unique types of Sashimi dishes; the service is very energetic and helpful, and good; living in South Beach getting good service at a restaurant is not common. Of course sitting outside you get to people watch and enjoy the great scenery that Lincoln Road has to offer. I highly recommend this Sushi restaurant; it's one of the best in South Beach. I read some older reviews that slammed the restaurant on how long it takes to get the food, this is a very busy restaurants on certain night and if you are in a hurry to eat, I personally wouldn't eat anywhere on Lincoln Road, or just go get a slice of Pizza somewhere. The many times that we went service was very quick when it wasn't a Thursday-Sunday night, and one the busy nights we didn't think it was too bad either.
Good Food, Great Location – The food and drinks are all spectacular! I don't know if they are still doing karaoke on tuesdays, but it was surprisingly full on what's supposed to be the slowest day of the week for the restaurant business. I have tried several menu items as well as drinks and am yet to be dissappointed. Has a bit of a celebrity feel to it.
Suave, sophisticated Latin-Japanese cuisine will make your taste buds dance for joy. – The Scene
Within weeks of opening SoBe's contingent of celebs had already Samba-ed on in, perhaps drawn by a restaurant as flashy as they are. Its focal point is a dramatic, black-tile sushi bar under lights that resemble upended mushrooms and surrounded by an elevated dining area.
Highly evolved simplicity keeps Samba's blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisines from becoming an unappetizing menage a trois. Nothing could be simpler (or more delicious) than sawagani, tiny Japanese river crabs, flash-fried and eaten whole. Equally sublime are salmon ceviche with Dijon mustard and miso and yellowtail tiradito, translucent slices of cured fish anointed with truffle oil and sea salt. Crispy oysters are more even luscious when garnished with gingery shiitake puree and wasabi tobiko. Relax, carnivores, churrasco Samba is for you. With a choice of either three or five grilled meats, you'll be in hog (and beef) heaven. Save room for churros, amazingly light fried pastries with orange-caramel, peanut and chocolate-cinnamon sauces.

One Word. Yummy – When I went there I thought it would be the same thing over again. But oh boy I was wrong. I had the Lomo Saltado and almost licked the plate when I was done. Yes, it was that good. Amazing how the mix different flavors. I could feel the Asian and Latin fusion on every bite. I also tried some eel sushi, the tenderloin ceviche and both were fantastic. To finish my dinner, I sipped a Nina Fresa. Perfect martini.
Great Food! Great Service! Great Time! – After not being to eat at Sushi Samba since its most anticipated opening in 2001, I gave another try last week and what a change! The food was IMPRESSIVE! We had the Kobe Tataki, it was delicious. I also loved the baked lobster and the desserts , specially the passionfruit sabayon. WE HAD A GREAT TIME! defenetly our favorite spot in Miami Beach.
Skip dinner go for drinks and apps – If you're looking for a quiet meal with attentive service don't even think about Sushi Samba. If you're looking for a place to kick back with some unusual drinks and light appetizers while you people-watch, this is a great place to do it.
Great Food, Horrible Service – I was there last night with a group of 10: great salmon tartare and duck entree, but service was the worst I have had during the last year. The waiter forgot some of the appetizers and brought whatever he remembered to the wrong people. We asked for heaters (it was cold outside) and had to wait 30 minutes to have one. It was a three hour dinner..and we only ordered 3 courses.
overrated – this is a somewhat overpriced joint for those who wanna be. The food is pretty good, though the portions are quite small. Good service. Noisy as hell.
best sushi in the town – its true.Real japanese sushi chef,very freh fish, great latin-japanese menu,a lots of nice cold sake,hey that all you need hot miami night.
Unbelievable experience – Recently I returned to Sushi Samba, very excited since my first experience there a couple of years ago was amazying. Well, this second time - I will NEVER go back. The waiter was rude, left me in mid sentence to help another table that had a problem. The manager took the order after I called him over, then the my sushi came as an appetizer (after we already had appetizers) and my other friends meals came 1 hr 10 minutes after we got to the restaurant. We left the food and didn't eat. It was really horrible and the manager did nothing to make it easier until I told him I was going to write this review. The food, experience of bad service is not worth it. No wonder the restaurant was empty.
