Alex is always outstanding. He’s one of the best waiters we’ve ever had in the area. Last night a terrific girl named Izzy/Isabell also helped out and she was on point! The food was flowing and we never had to wait for anything. The table was always clean. We can’t say enough about this place.

First time hear and everything was great. They did forget to put my food order in but they were very apologetic and comped am appetizer. My food came out excellent. I would highly recommend the brussel sprouts they were the best I’ve had anywhere. I would absolutely come back here again.

The Saturday and Sunday brunch feast was EVERYTHING AND MORE!!! An amazing deal of under $50 for over 8 appetizers, an entree and dessert! Brunch on Saturdays is new so the noise level was minimal and the service was attentive. And don’t forget for an extra $20 you get an unlimited 2-hour drink special on your choice of libations!! Amazing!!!

It was a last minute decision that turned out to be a real WIN. Hands down some of the best sushi rolls I've had in Miami. It also happened to be Maki Monday which features some of their Maki rolls for only $10. Can't go wrong. Here's our winning line up... for Appetizers we had the Crispy Snapper and Salmon with Pear. Then we did the Aburi Salmon and Truffled Yellowtail rolls followed by the Chocolate Fondant for dessert. Wow, wow and wow. Will definitely be back to see if the other sushi rolls and menu items maintains the same fresh and tasty standards.

Nice to return to this restaurant during this pandemic time. I like that they follow and apply social distancing, wear face masks and interiors look well sanitized and welcoming. We tried the Brunch special which was very good value for the amount and quality of food served. Nigiri sushi items could be improved on. Good place to consider for casual dining for couples to family groups for lunch to dinner into late night.

Our first dining experience at Tanuki was fantastic! There’s wasn’t an item we didn’t love and we had a table of 8 and ordered about half the menu. Our server osha (sorry if I got that wrong) was great and very informative when asking for recommendations on menu selections. Overall a great experience and we look forward to going back!

Food was awesome. We wanted to order more from the happy hour menu. All four of the people at the table were left for 20 minutes with empty cocktails and waters. We also had to dispute items on the check that were never delivered. I feel like since it’s an auto gratuity place the server didn’t really care. I usually tip over 30% when service is good.

I was very excited to try this restaurant, upon coming to the restaurant we were greeted by the host and then seated. Our server was outstanding and even recommended us some clubs to go to as we are from out of town. However, I was very excited to try the food that they had to offer I got the Wagyu Ramen and my boyfriend got the chicken fried rice. To be completely honest the Ramen was very salty to the point where it was hard to enjoy and my boyfriends fried rice was kind of bland. But overall the atmosphere of the restaurant was nice and the drinks were decently priced and strong, definitely a place you’d want to check out.

The hostess was far more attentive than our server.. wish I would have removed the gratuity from our bill and handed it to her. I had high expectations for the quality of fish that was used but I was disappointed.. this is coming from someone that eats at makoto and zuma 3x a week... The atmosphere is great it’s just lacking all the fundamentals. Needs a better manager.. I wouldn’t give this place a second chance sorry

Was really excited about eating here after reading many reviews seeing the pictures and the ambience and many pictures on Instagram upon arriving we were seated very quickly seating is very tight seems like there is no social distancing at this point but that’s OK took about 17 minutes for our waitress to acknowledges us upon acknowledging us then we proceeded to order drinks as in four out of the eight drinks they had available 4 we’re not available so the drinks that I Kinda was forced to purchase they were very spicy where in the description said nothing about heat or spice.. The menu show no pictures at all hard to pick something because there was so many nice pictures on Instagram so we had to refer back to Instagram and try to pinpoint pictures and menu description food is very petite so order alot if you plan to get full.. it’s kind of crazy where you’re given a sampler of them some with no Estoy sauce no chopsticks no napkins I just think tonight was not their night and they were unorganized I normally never ever write a review but when I spend over $125 and I had to go eat dinner after just having dinner says a lot about the restaurant ending up at the Waldorf for Real drinks topped it off with a few slices of pizza that was are night at Tanuki Miami
