OK Food, Terrible Service 3/6/2011

We keep going back and giving them another chance, yet we keep getting the same TERRIBLE service. Last night was the worst so far. We had 4 adults, and a 20 month old. When we got to the restaurant they told us a 15-20 minute wait, and it took 55 minutes to get seated. The hostess was rude when we asked her how much longer. Once they took us to our table, the waitress was rude and rushing us to order before we were able to sit down. We ordered our meals, and asked for a small side of rice for our daughter. When we received our bill, they added 20% gratuity and charged us $5.95 for the rice. When we asked why gratuity was added, the waitress said it was because we had five people eating. I would have no problem leaving a tip if the service was at least decent, but she was rude the whole time, and we were often left with empty drinks. We were shocked how expensive a side of rice was for a child. Overall bad customer service, food is marginal, and don't think we'll be giving them another chance. more

Driest and disgusting taste 8/9/2009

Do not be fooled by the Japanese waiters. I have never had such dry and enormously wide pieces of sushi. This is very overpriced for the quality ($65 for 2). RUN FAR AWAY. Go to Shogun sushi for the real thing!!!! Pros: Good green tea Cons: Dry and BAD quality sushi more

Horrible, horrible, horrible service 3/14/2009

We had a $300 tab, waited a half hour for one round of drinks and an hour for our food, had to flag down a manager to get a round of waters, and were JUST STARTING OUR ENTREES, and here's what happened: more

Happy Take-out Customer 5/1/2008

I ordered take out on Saturday, April 26, 2008, A California roll, A Tiger Roll, Edamame and Miso Soup. I've only been able to taste and appreciate this type of food in Phoenix/Scottsdale/Tempe, ARizona areas, so based on that, I have to give this place 4 stars, because the food was delicious! EVen as take-out! It was perfect. When I saw the inside was pretty nice, I kicked myself for not going in but I was not able to because of time constraints on that weekend. I plan to check out other places when I go back to BRQE, but I definitely wouldn't mind coming back to this place, even if it's just for take-out like last time. Pros: Ambience +++ more

Not so good sushi 9/12/2007

Sushi is ok. Had a Funny taste to it. Not just one roll but all 5 rolls i ordered. Trust me I know sushi. Wasn't as fresh as other sushi bar. It seems that the fish was frozen then thawed incorrectly. And for the pickled cucumber inside the sushi.... come on.... it ruin's it totally. Sushi rice was dry on that day. Ordered sukiyaki beef there also. Wasn't happy with it at all. It's a sweet broth with veg, tofu, noodles and beef. Don't even talk about the beef. It was just steamed and put on top of the dish. No flavor what so ever on the beef. Who eat steam beef? I ain't paying $13 for steam beef. more
