I went there with my girlfriends this past weekend and had a blast. We sat outside and had cocktails and food all night--the food is amazing! Definitely my new favorite place.

Pros: great decor, awesome food

Cons: a lot of variety

I ordered a delivery last night and it took them an hour and 30 minutes to deliver. I called 3 times after 50 minutes of waiting, and the staff didn't say once that they are sorry to keep me waiting. When, after an hour and 30 minutes, i have said that i would like to cancel my order, they simply said "OK" and hang up on me. The sushi did arrive in a minute and they were not anything to write home about.

This is the best Japanese spot out of all the places I been to. The appertizers are great, and the sushi is great. The service is excellent. The staff is very friendly. The only down side is its pricey.

Cons: None

the first impression when i walked into the restaurant ---bad service. there were 5 servers there at least. no other customer were waiting. nobody wanted to come forward to greet us until we were standing there 10 mins long enough there was someone finally came out to the reception area and gave us a look like "what do we want?" .........bad service like this enough to scare customers away from the good part of sushi

After Excellent's recent renovation I decided to try again after being disappointed by the decline in Excellent's food over a year ago. What a smart move. Not only is the interior and exterior fabulous but the new & improved menu and superior quality has returned to an even better than before status. Now SI can tout Manhattanesque Sushi. Fushimi has a name but certainly not impressive to me at all. Sushi Excellent has surpassed my expectations and is truly the best on the Island. Service is great too. Everything we ordered was fantastic, including non Sushi items..

Pros: Fresh and divine sushi

Cons: None so far

Ate there twice, before & after renovation, everything I ordered was mouth watering...
I really loved the new ambience, I really can't wait for the upstairs to open so that I could some parties there. Well, now we don't have to drive all the way to nyc for drinks. Besides, the food there can keep up with Manhattan anyway.
BTW, for the waiter who got fired for the reason he mentioned, I think you are not total honest about your statement. I was a restaurant mgr myself. We don't fire people for a good recommendation. And for the customer who claimed to find "insect shell"?? For crying out loud, most of the fish have shells & fins(shrimp shells have legs too), those are tiny. No big deal! In Japan, we eat live fish & China eat live worms & those are delicacy. If you are looking for free food, just say so. On the other hand, if you are 100% sure that the food is bad, the mgr should give you a comp for them item or buy you a drink.
Pls, guys....me & my friends really like this place & the staff @ sushi excellent, give them a break. I believe in a short feew months, this is "THE PLACE" to hang out.

Pros: Food & Ambience

Cons: Waited 20 minutes one time

I was a waiter for them and not only are there buggies but the chef smokes while he cooks! from time to time he misses the floor and the food becomes his new ashtray! I was fired for suggesting to hire my friend that is an exterminator. also if your brave enough to go there then look around the corners of the restaurant CLOSELY..You will see a lot of DUST laying around due to the "new" construction and guess what??? theres more floating around the kitchen ending up in your food!

It was so terrible!!!!
I can't believe that but really revealed in my eyes!!!
My friends and I went to sushi excellent on New Year Eve. We heard the restaurant has already renovation. We felt so excited because we used to have great time there. The restaurant decor is so great and the drinks, appetizers also until the main dishes came out. The dishes looked so beautiful. While I was picking up a piece of sushi roll and ready to put in my mouth, I saw a "thing" as brown color, long as nail size with many legs like crawling. It was scared my friends and me. We all stopped and requested cancel all the order. But the captain said we have to pay the drinks and appetizers for those before we had already eaten. I felt so disappointed to pay for what and why? We feel nervous about before we ate and drunk. We should go to hospital body check! It was so stunning New Year!!!!!!
My friends and I won't go there again.

Sushi Excellent is a bit overpriced but there Spicy Tuna Salad is to die for. There is a great variety of seating choices- in a terrace-type area, in the main area, and a side area for a more quiet and intimate dining experience.

Sushi Excellent is one of the best sushi places there is. I only discovered this place a while ago and have been there almost every week since. Everytime I finish eating I say to myself I have to write a review but never do because I have never written a review for any restaurant before. My boyfriend and I are always trying new dishes and rolls and I can honestly say this restaurant can do no wrong. I am big on sushi and have tried some of the best sushi restaurants in new york but this really is the best one. Not only is the sushi amazing but the waiters are unbelievable. I jokingly call them superwaiters because I have never had such good service before. This place is just perfect in every way. I would recommend making reservations on the weekends and if you are going with a group I would reserve a table upstairs.

I am a big japanese food fan. As the busy doctor I am, I often don't have any time of enjoying good food. However, Sushi Excellent drives me to it every week or eveyr other week. Its like an addiction. The food is incredible. My brother is a professional food taster and rater. He also loves the food at Sushi Excellent as well. The FOOD is incredible. The SERVICE is fantastic; the waiters and managers smile at you while they serve you. To be honest, I think this may be one of the CLEANEST restaurants I've been to, and as you can assume, I am a person who is clean concious. The restaurant has a NICE ATMOSPHERE, quiet with music. EXOTIC with dimmed light. PEFECT for Romantic DATES. The prices are very reasonable, considering the quality of the food. The sashmi and a la carte is fantastic. Many of the rolls are probably best in New York City. I believe it is absolutely worh the trip to Sushi Excellent no matter where you live in the city. I am sure, if this restaurant was in Manhattan, it would be one of the most successful and best japanese restaurants in the city. Definately.

Pros: Great Food, Atmosphere, Excellent and Friendly Service, Worth the Trip to Staten Island, Clean

Cons: Of COURSE, NOTHING! thats exactly why i travel to sushi EXCELLENT, for its EXCELLENT food!

Go during the week to avoid the crowds. The sushi really is excellent. The salmon sushi is so big it takes two bites to eat and melts in your mouth. The salmon lover's dish is a great deal with 7 pieces of salmon sushi and a spicy salmon roll.

I go to this restaurant quite often because I never had a meal I didn't like! It gets very busy on the weekends, causing the service to be a bit on the slow side, but the staff is usually kind and the food is wonderful...a little pricey, but I think it's worth it. The firehouse rolls are the best!

I went there on a Sunday night, first thing through the door (after being seated). We were approached by a VERY rude manager/waiter informing us that the restaurant was closing at 10 and basically that we were unwanted business. The sushi was sub-par at best. In fact, for the nearly $100 bill that came promptly after our salad was taken away, was definitely not worth it at all. I would HIGHLY recommend any other sushi restaurant on SI.
