Great service! Wonderful fresh sushi! Owner was very pleasant and was accessible. He circulated through the restaurant the entire night and was helping out where he saw a need. By far the best place we've found in the area for good service and sushi!

I have not been to Sushi at The Lake in a while and when I walked it I was amazed at how nice it looks and the smiling faces at the door. The new renovations look very good in addition to the extended bar. My husband and I waited at the bar for a table and enjoyed the personalities of both bartenders working. Once we sat down, our server was very attentive, mature, and helpful while describing new rolls and the new format of the menu- HELPFUL TO THE MAX!! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that loves sushi and a relaxing atmosphere. Great people, great service, and awesome food. Thank you for stepping things up and making our experience better everytime we come in!

My boyfriend and I go to S@TL at LEAST once a week for lunch..when we walk in, we have 'our' table, Jamie rattles off our usual orders, to make sure nothing has changed..and all we have to do is sit, wait a few minutes, and eat! It's definately a welcoming atmosphere, and VERY affordable with the lunch specials!! I would recommend that everyone try it! :)

we are Hibachi snobs and when we moved here from Atlanta we started our search for the best Hibachi around. We tried them all (from LKN to University) and this is by far the best around! Not only-is the cooking excellent but the atmosphere is awesome too. You always feel very welcome and appreciated there, we love that! Only downside is Hibachi isn't open on Mondays, but we can live with that :)

After many years of using Citysearch, I'm posting my first review... b/c of this restaurant. My husband and I just moved to the area and were looking for good, local sushi. Based on the other positive reviews, we decided to try Sushi at the Lake. We ordered endamame, salads, and sushi. Though the endamame were woefully overcooked, the rest of the meal was quite good. We eat a lot of sushi and found the sushi quality to be good, and the salads (seaweed & cucumber) were very good. The prices were moderate for sushi - by no means a great price, but also not overly expensive.

However, and I say this with strong emphasis, the atmosphere (previously described as "young" or "casual" - and we're both, by the way) was unpleasant and not at all what we would have been looking for... we very nearly left b/c of it. Sure, this is a personal preference thing... but it was blaringly loud, there were sports-filled televisions everywhere. I left with a splitting headache, and I don't mind a little music. It had the atmosphere of an extremely loud sports bar, where they happened to serve Japanese food. It was unpleasant enough for us that we definitely will *not* be going back, despite the good food. However if you like this kind of scene, Sushi on the Lake may just be your cup of tv- and noise-filled green tea.

Pros: Food

Cons: Atmosphere

Place is always consistant with taste and freshness, always excellent, it dont seem as good as it was before they had the fire but probably still the best sushi in charolette, i drive from south carolina just to go here for sushi, my only concern after the fire was if Stephanie was coming back, and she did. I went to Ru-San's the other nite because it has 5 stars and let me tell u, its not even close to the quality that u get at sushi at the lake, this is the best place to get sushi probably in north carolina,

Pros: nice looking crowd there, its upbeat, Stephanie the hostess, and the quality and taste of the food is always great

Cons: really dont have any, i always walked away satisified

Great spot, great sushi, great service and laid-back atmosphere. Took a friend from out of town and it made a great impression. Lived in Atlanta, Boston, NYC and Sushi at the Lake stacks up to the best sushi haunts in all cities. Give it a try and have fun.

This is the place to go if you are used to real, good sushi that you would get at the best places in LA or NY. The hibachi is also great and the snow crab cakes are to die for! The service is usually good but there is a wait ot 30-45 minutes on Fri/Sat night if you don't reserve! It's nice that you can sit at a regular table OR a hibachi grill for the show. My only gripe is that you can smoke in NC restuarants and the smell from the bar can sometimes travel across the restaurant to the NS section.

Pros: Great Sushi, Great Hibachi, Something 4 Everyone

Cons: Loud @ times, Smoking section

but if you want excellant Sushi in Charlotte with a young crowd atmosphere, this is the place. Not everyone can do sushi right, but this place compares with New York and San Francisco. There is eye candy for everyone here.

I am confused. I don't know whether I'm in a rock and roll bar, or a disco or a sports bar. The food is so-so, you can get this in any "sushi" restaurant, nothing different. I can't barely hear with the loud music. The manager was rude, the server had no clue.
