Great Service and AHI TOWER – My family and I visited Beluga last Friday night before catching a movie and it was great. Our waitress Summer was fantastic and suggested several things that she thought we would enjoy. They were great and probably things we would have never ordered on our own. We felt like our service was very personal and another thing is the ahi tower was fantastic! We had never tried it before and so glad we did! We will keep coming back, and love this "jewel" of a restraurant is in our own neghborhood!
great sushi and staff – I really do not understand the two reviews before mine. However me and some friends was told about Belugas through some others friends, so we thought we would give it a shot. Which was a true shot concidering we all live in south austin and its in Round Rock. We were greeted, and seated promptly. We had a party of 5, but instead of sitting at a table we sat at the sushi bar. Our server was Lisa. Awesome waitress. Not only did she recommend things but she keep our party in good spirits and laughs the whole time. Highly recommend the Ahi Tower. Great starter. Then the rolls a must would be Mr. Smith and the Jen-Jen. Sushi is great as well as the chefs preparing them. The guys were laughing with us as well as giving us other things to taste. So if you want somewhere north to eat sushi this is the place. Not sure but maybe these people before me had a bad day. But this place, food, and staff was great. Me and my boyfriend will be back and bring more friends.. And to whom ever wrote the thing about the manager, get a grip.
Nothing to complain, but nothing to rave about – I came here a few weeks ago with a friend and I'd have to say the food was really good. The waitstaff was unprofessional and didn't seem to know anything though, and that was kind of interesting. My friend mentioned they had a great staff at one point but now she said they all seemed to not be there anymore and that the food isn't as great as she remembered.
The Ahi tower was to DIE for! I'm craving it right now! Another thing that I enjoyed was the Salmon Carpaccio. Very simple but light and delicious. I'd definitely go back for those items.
The review about the manager is just plain rude. I've worked as a waitress before and malicious comments like that is unnecessary.. they're trying to do their job.
sushi in round rock – a sushi spot in round rock that is neither great nor bad. go and see for yourself or not. many places to try this is just one of them or not.
goto origami when in round rock – i was recently told to check out a couple of sushi bars in round rock. dined at beluga and origami. the food at beluga was o.k. nice ambiance if you enjoy dining in a club like atmosphere. the service was good but not entirely friendly. the tuna tower came highly recommended(dont get it!). expensive for what it was. felt like i was pay for the presentation of sauces, not the food. the fish quality seemed just o.k.
i ordered a cocktail and had to give them my license for some "county" thing(whats with that?)
WOW! – We had the best time here with the best sushi we have ever tasted! We have "done " sushi in many places. Most three times the price of this...but this was so amazingly yummy...Blue Goose happiness in my mouth...volcano...oh yes oh yesssss perfect spice... Black Widow.....little caviar bursts..crunchies ...smoothness..amusment park of taste and texture...Food is top notch....
BUT....the service!!! Last time we went we had five kids with us ( 10-16) who are not the most sophisticated children or manerly..but they were given a list of specific allowed behaviours...Our server...I wish I could remember her name! Was fabulous..she made food sugestions for the won't eat aything kids...and served us as if we were royality.. not a glass went dry...not a dish was forgotten...she had a great wine recomendation...and was very knowledgeable about the food and ingriedents. We came out of there disapointed to see we were in Round Rock Texas because for almost two hours we felt like we were in the finest of NY or LA places. Fabulous!
Experience Sushi/Sashimi in great atmosphere..... in Round Rock? – We eat at Beluga's about once a week either lunch or dinner. We love it here. Seriously, the food is great & the service has been fabulous.
Kelly is an amazing waitress. She knows exactly what we're drinking when we sit down. She's never made a bad recomendation as far new things to try. So helpful, So sweet.... If you get in her section, tip her well. She does a wonderful job.
Jay & Eric are great if you ever have comments, good or bad. When Fish worked there, he was just as great before moving to Florida. Both Jay and Eric are very hands on and so attentive to their customers. More often then not, you'll see behind the Sushi bar helping the guys out & Eric is always walking around making sure everything is going smoothly.
And the food... Oh, try the Ahi Tower with toasted nori to wrap bites of it up in. The escolar is perfect. melt inyour mouth, beautiful sahusi/sashimi. When you're at the sushi bar and the chefs offer something new to try, try it. They've never steered us wrong.
Great specials to try too. our favorites are Sushi Happy hour from 5-7 during the week & 1/2 price sake on Friday nights.
If you've not been here yet or in awhile, you have to try it. From outside, it's hard to imagine what you see on the inside. Once you're inside, there is great atmosphere, great music, & exceptional food!!!
very good.. – I have been here a couple of times during the week for lunch and stopped in over the weekend with some out of town guests. They raved about the sushi and loved all of the speciality drinks! We will be back for dinner.
gag me with a chopstick! – i cannot believe that this place stays in business. no one knows what is going on...sushi food was horrible and everything is so inconsistent. i have been a regular and tried to give it another try after another try but my last visit was my last. the wait staff are unprofessional and clueless and the food is not fresh at all anymore. everything just feels off there. something that was once good has fallen off the map. even my drink tasted like sh*t. Bad environment. bad service. not recommended. just don't waste your money on the food or gas to go there
Bad service...what has happened? – I have eaten here consistently since moving from Dallas over 18 months ago but recently the service has gotten really bad. I usually eat here for lunch (I work at Dell) and noticed the past couple of visits you seemed to be forgotten about ??. my husband and I went on Friday night the experience was so bad I will never go back! I ordered something new and when they finally brought it, after my husband had finished all his sushi, it wasn't what I expected. I went to the hostess stand to get a menu to make sure I ordered the correct thing, when I got back to the table a lady was there (not the waitress) asking if everything was o.k. I explained what I ordered and how I thought it was different than what they gave me. She said "this isn't what you ordered let me take it back". Then she came back to our table, with the sushi (that had been carried back and forth to the table 2 times) and said that she was wrong this was what I ordered, I then told her what I expected it to be. She told me to taste it and I would see that the sauce was spicy; I explained that I had tasted it and I didn't like it. She started to walk off and then turned around when she noticed I wasn't eating eat, picked up the plate and then said "I will just take it off then". She comes back and throws the check on the table, while continuing to walk, and said ?I took it off for you.? I was appalled, not once did we ask for it to be removed from the check, sushi corrected, etc... The sad thing is all she had to do was LISTEN to what I was saying to know all I wanted was some spicy mayo. Now they have lost our business and I will relive my experience to everyone I work with at Dell. And where did the owner go? He was ALWAYS in there overseeing things.
