  • Not only is it an elegant experience, but the servers were very attentive. We didn't have a reservation, but we got seated at a booth, anyway. The food was light and tasty, as you would expect Japanese food to be. Not only was it exquisitely prepared, but it was very tasty. I guess the only caveat is that if you're really hungry (and are a typical American), you may want to eat someplace else, because we had to get two plates each, and dropped a little over $130.00 on dinner for 4, including one appetizer. But for delicate eating, this is one of the best Japanese/Sushi restaurants I have been to, and it's conveniently located near me in the Museum District. Definitely worth going again, but maybe for a mid-afternoon snack...
  • Had to write a review for one of the best experiences of my life. MF Sushi has that calm soothing environment going but also with live enthusiasm from everybody dinning. It's awesome, and the staff is wonderful. I'm DEFINITELY going to recommend this awesome restaurant to all my family and friends. Couldn't ask for a better dinning experience.
  • The best omakase I have had to date. The fish were extremely fresh and the food was delicate and delicious. Being able to see the food being prepared was an added source of entertainment. It's about $150 per head, so save it for a special occasion.
  • Wonderful place, the food was excellent as well as the service! I brought my service dog with me and they were very tactful about the situation as well as polite. They went above and beyond to make sure everything was to our liking. Overall this establishment has been respectful, accommodating and indulging! Would definitely recommend this to others.
  • Such a great dining experience. A great place with great service. Some of the best sushi that I have ever had.
