I use to love the place – I use to live in Bay Ridge and Fontana Sushi was one of my favourite places.
Unfortunately now Everything has changed: the food is expensive and the service is sooo bad that it was the first restaurant where i didn't feel like leaving any tips.
Avoid at all cost – I was with a party of 5 on a friday night 7:45pm, got seated fairly quickly because they weren't busy. We all ordered the all you can eat. It took about 30 mins for our first order to arrive. It was half of what we ordered since they "lost" half of the order.
It was 30 mins later when we flagged down a waiter, who gave us a stone cold apology. By this time it was 9pm and we were starving. They obviously limit the all you can eat customers so they can make the most profit. We made the best of this nightmare, ate our last order, paid (they add a mandatory $20 tip on the bill), ran out of there and promise never to come back. No wonder they weren't busy on a friday night.
Fontana not up to old standards – Served ice cold flavorless sashimi. Waiter borderline surly. Maybe Tuesday is a bad day there.
All you can eat!!! Oh yeah! – Great for all you can eat! If you like to pig-out on Sushi, this is your spot!
There is a decent Sushi selection on the all you can eat menu. At first sight, you think you may need an attorney before agreeing, but I'm sure they have had their share of all you can eat scammers.
The sushi is not like other all you can eats where the fish is tiny and the rice a huge lump. Prders come quickly.
The staff is usually low in number, so you'll have to wait a bit to get their attention.
The space is minimal, but clean and pleasant.
This Place rocks for Bay Ridge locals – I have told so many people to come here even my friend from Japan and we all love it, especially when we get the room for all of us to sit in our own little world eating tons of good sushi! Oysters are yummy too!
thank you fontana sushi – This place is great, that's all that needs to be said. The sushi is very fresh, the place is not noisy, and all for 20 dollars for all you can eat! I eat here regularly with my girlfriend. Some of the better choices are tuna, salmon, eel, spicy tuna roll, shrimp tempura roll, and eel roll. You will get seated as you walk in too! Please try it, I am sure you will agree.
Plastic plates... – "all you can eat" is of great value if u are not looking for above average sushi. Sushi pieces are smaller if u r a 'buffet' customer and choices are rather limited and there's really nothing special on the menu. They use plasticwares to serve 'buffet' sushi, soup, salad and green tea, which is totally inappropriate for japanese food. The place gets a bit noisy, it's definitely not that much of a romantic place. Waitresses are nice but the guys are not that great. they don't even stop at your table when bringing food. but above all, they do have fresh fish, especially salmon and yellowtail. they were delicious. in terms of service, atmosphere and food combined, i would say it's about average. it's still good place to go if u r craving for sushi but don't want to spend a lot of money.
Great Sushi – I'm a regular at this nice, clean restaurant. The service is great and the sushi is the best I've had in Brooklyn.
$20 all-you-can-eat sushi – came here for lunch one day. i'm not a sushi lover but my boyfriend is and he absolutely loves the sushi here. and the price is just right, $20all-you-can-eat lunch special. it's a great deal. i ordered non-sushi rolls and enjoyed my meal. definitely plan on coming back.
Gone down the hill – I used to eat at Fontana at least once a week, and loved their food and service. However, some time ago, their owners have changed, and the quality of food dropped, while prices were raised.
I wanted to leave an honest review - I got very sick after eating there, but this site does not allow you to use certain words, so just trust me - it is safer not to eat there.
