Sushi Samba is a solid 4 star place. The staff is attentive. The sushi, while not particularly memorable, was fresh and tasted good. I'd come here again.

I'd like to self proclaim myself to be a sushi connoisseur and I have to say that this was average. I've had way better sushi at way cheaper prices. The server was good and the ambience was cool (as probably all the Sushi Sambas are)....

Great sushi...they do not go cheap on the fish in the rolls like some places do. Also, the sake was great...waiter was informative...although i felt like he tried to rush us in the end by pouring all of our sake into our glasses...which we did not want to do b/c we wanted to keep it warm until we were ready to finish it. Other than that, everything was great!

Pros: Generous portion of fish in rolls

Cons: Waiter tried to turn the table too quickly

.

Located on Lincoln Road Mall makes for great people watching. They have a few options for vegan and vegetarian diners, but not enough for me to return.

We were pleasantly impressed with Sushi Samba Dromo. We visited on a night when they were celebrating Brazil Independence Day, so the evening included samba dancers and musicians. Our waitress was extremely nice, energetic, and attentive. The sushi was great, the entrees were delicious and the dessert was sublime. Well worth the price!

Pros: Decor, seating, ambience

As a native New Yorker and frequent Sushi Samba goer in NYC I had to try the famous restaurant chain's outpost in South Beach. And sure enough it did not disappoint. The ambiance mixed with the delectable food and even better cocktails proved to be the best dinner I had during my trip to Miami.

Sushi Samba Dromo is where you can enjoy great sushi or a good steak in the coolest ambiance. It is a very relaxing atmosphere... The service was also very good.

Although the ambiance is fun and interesting, it is definately not worth the price. The service is slow and the servers do not take the time to explain the food or refill drinks. The portions are really small and it takes about an hour between courses to get your food. The food was good but nothing special. You are mostly paying for eating in South Beach.

When my friends pick this place I was a little unsure but WOW was I happy she did when I got there! The decor is great so when I first walked in I really like what I saw. The service was great the wait staff was so patience and nice, I dine with a large group so we had a lot of questions as first time dining experience at sushi samba dromo. The menu is very diverse it was something there for everyone. The manager sent over complimentary appetizers to the table and that is when I tasted the best calamari on the beach it was different and great a must try (!Chicharron de Calamar :cornmeal-crusted calamari with tamarind sauce, tomato salsa & plantain

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A great location on the main drag in South Beach for people watching and dining out. The hot colors at Sushi Samba provide for great ambience in which to enjoy designer meals that blend East and Latin American influences. Try the caiprinha if you want to drink something stronger than a mojito!

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.

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.

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.

since when does sushi have to be eaten on ivory plates and served by supermodels? When did Japanese cuisine deviate from it's heritage and spun out from latin america? (other than brazil's Rio)

Although someone rebel has to deviate from the norm, I think it's way off and offensive to my culture. I only went because everyone I was with wanted to be seen there. I was seen I guess

The first thing we did when we arrived we ordered some of there amazing house specialty cocktails then a bottle of wine, after the 3rd attempt, they were out of our first 2 selections, we got our wine. We noticed there Sushi prices to be high, $10.50 for a California Roll. The waiter said that was because they used all fresh ingredients, with Sushi i hope so. After waiting 30minutes for the appetizer and another 45 for the entree, the Sea Bass which is $25, was rubbery. The waiter explained it is frozen, because this time of year you can't get fresh. That contradicted the "fresh ingredients". I feel there is nothing, other than the decor, special about this place. Just another Over Priced restaurant. Go across the street to Sushi Siam for Good, Reasonably priced Sushi.

Sometimes, as with French and Thai, fusion just works and Sushi Samba is no exception. The flash-fried Japanese river crabs were amazing; the fried red snapper with the coconut rice - terrific. And the tenderloin with morels and plantains in the balsamic reduction unbelieveable seriously one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. When I asked our waiter for a sample of the Chorizo, I was offered a small sample, free of charge (and it was terrific, btw). I think the one in NYC has marginally better food, but the service is not nearly as friendly. The added benefit of Miamis edition is you can casually stroll out onto Lincoln Road in Manhattan, you get to walk into 7th Avenue with its traffic and NJ tunnel overspill. I think the lesser reviews here are more exception than rule definitely go if you havent been.

Great concept, but won't make it. The experience I had at this place is just ridiculous. I waited 55 minutes for my food, 25 for my desert. They were out of dinner ware, I had to wait for my fork. Who knows what they served my wine in, definitely not a wine glass. I go so frustrated I went up to the bar, seemed to be hopping. The red headed bartender was incredible! Wonderful personality and service! Oh, don't dare step into the bathrooms there horrible!

I never had an experience like this in my life. I don't know where to start. First I was served my martini in a wine glass then my bottle of wine in Brandy Snifters, the waiter said they only had about 40 wine glasses to the whole restaurant (the restaurant seats over 150 people easy). Then the waiter said the concept of the restaurant was all about sharing and let him guide us threw the menu. But everytime a course showed up the waiter had to run and get us; share plates, silverware, chopsticks, etc. I guess there idea of share means everyone grab what you can with your fingers from the food placed in the middle of the table. We were afraid to order dessert, I never ate ice cream with my fingers. Good luck. A little advice, if your gonna open a restaurant, at least have forks.

As a visitor to Miami, I used Citysearch to find a good sushi restaurant. When I saw the review for Sushi Samba, I decided to try it out. This was some of the most amazing sushi I've had. I went there for lunch and loved the variety of lunch choices. Terrific restaurant.
