The specialty drinks here are great and the place has a fun vibe. Don't get the food - it is expensive and not great. But do hit the bar!

You are paying for something other than the food, and I'm not sure what it is. The decor is a bit dated and the bright colors are not that easy on the eyes. The staff is cold and think their special - except the busboys who were very diligent with the dishes and the water. A California Roll is $14, just to give you some idea of the prices. Some of the appetizers were very good but the sushi was not that special. I will not go back unless an out-of-towner insists.

The food at SushiSamba is on the pricey side, no doubt about that. And there is always a long wait/crowd. And they cram so many tables into the place they have to be violating some saftey code. BUT the food is unque and fun and the atmosphere is interesting. Some locations have amazing teryaki chicken with purple "peruvian?" mashed potatoes and their spicy yellowtail sushi is some of the best I've ever had. It's not authentic by any stretch of the imagination, but I enjoyed what I ordered and it's a great place to people watch as you eat.

We went to SS7 during Restaurant Week. The food was very good, but the portions were way too small (even for a RW menu). I'm not one to favor heaping mounds of food on my plate, by any means, but their plates were ridiculously small. The best part of the meal were the drinks. The bartenders (we sat at the bar before our reservation) were very friendly and they make amazing fresh fruit mojitos. This place is worth stopping in for a cocktail, but you can find many places offering comparable food at a much better value.

No one should have to wait for well over an hour for a table when they have a reservation. The whole experience is made worse when the host/manager tells you that you are the next table to sit and "you'll be sitting within 2 minutes" over and over again when in fact you still are not sitting 45 minutes later. Also, it is very overpriced.

Never again. There are much better places you can spend your money to enjoy quality sushi. For a table of two - the cost for one person who had an appetizer, edamame, 2 rolls, 4 sashimi, 2 sushi$135....how can that be? Just not worth it

I usually don't like fusion but this palce has a nice atmosphere so I went in. The food is just plain but it's modern and neat so I would come with people who are not too picky about ethnic food being pure and authentic.
