About the Menu -
Like Japan, Peru has a millennia-old history. They are two great, ancient civilizations with two major culinary traditions. These traditions complemented one another, and neither of the two sides absorbed the other to the point where one disappeared. SusherÍa menu is the result of this great union and the experience/vision of Mauricio Fraga-Rosenfeld and his dedicated culinary team lead by Peruvian Executive Chef Javier Angeles-Beron.

About the experience -
Susheria is a unique casual-glam restaurant concept where you will enjoy Izakaya, a Japanese style of service. The Japanese version of tapas, dishes will be served when ready. Izayaka is a perfect moment to enjoy life, laughter and great conversations while sharing food and drinks.

The service was great from start to finish, yes we belong to that loutish group of Americans who slather their sushi with wasabi and ginger, though we are perfectly aware that you are not supposed to do that, and our desires were graciously accommodated. There are a few items with interesting twists but it's not too crazy and we like that too, sometimes you feel that the kitchen is trying to be inventive just for the heck of it, but here it all made sense.
My only complaint, the tables are really very close together and we felt slightly nervous all evening, one has become used to a bit more distance. That said, we did notice the tables being scrupulously wiped down between guests. I would go again, but probably not until after covid, assuming that ever happens...

I had never eaten Peruvian-Japanese, and this was a lovely first experience! The sushi tasted fresh and delicious (and this is coming from someone who isn't the biggest sushi fan), and the aji de gallina was 100% a can't miss item on the menu! We sat outside, and the outdoor seating area was very cute and actually not very loud, when you consider we were next to the street. We had no trouble hearing each other or peacefully enjoying out meal. Overall a great experience and a pretty solid price for the high quality food and drinks we got! I would recommend this restaurant for anything from a casual dinner to a special date night.

Food was fine, the sashimi had good salmon, Escolar and Hamachi, the tuna on the contrary was just OK.
The Ceviche was OK too.
Service was great.

What an incredible experience! We went to celebrate our anniversary, and we were not only able to be seated early but we were greeted with 2 flutes of champagne. Everything we ate was incredible, and our server had the best recommendations. Our server was so attentive and also just hilarious. We’d highly recommend Susheria to anyone - we’ll definitely be back!

I had a great dinner with my friend. It’s a very laidback atmosphere with music. The food was good and fresh. Everything I had was delicious. The drinks were also good. I highly recommend the Lychee-Tini. The waiters and hostess staff were all very attentive and friendly. I made a reservation I didn’t have to wait for my table upon arrival. The waitress was soo nice and sweet. I can’t wait to come back and visit.

Of the five drinks we ordered, only one was correct. The others were terrible, and inconsistent from round to round. Drink service was exceptionally slow, and we got our entrees about 20 minutes apart from each other. I understand some restaurants bring dishes as soon as they are ready, but this went a little too far. Half of our party was finished eating long before the other diners received their meals.

I had high expectations for susheria given my experience with Latin/Japanese fusion restaurants in Miami.

I was not disappointed! As the reviews mention, the fish was fresh, and the Lomo Saltado sushi roll was on point! A great blend of flavors. I am a big eater and was full after splitting the tuna tataki(so good), a spicy salmon roll, spicy tuna roll, and the lomo saltado roll.

The service was great (thank you CJ) and the Latin music was lively and made for great *vibes*. We also ordered a few rounds of the hot house sake. Great all around. I wish they had a brunch! Maybe we just missed It.

This place has terrible service. Our waitress was slow and necessarily sassy. She seemed annoyed when approaching our table. Maybe because we weren't ordering a $500 meal (we were just two people), she deemed us less. That said, we ended up spending over $100 on a simple meal because the prices are very high, especially the cocktails.
The food was good, but not enough to trump the terrible service.
