Great Sushi, but Sashimi is the best. Had a dinner with my girlfriend and it was definitely one of the best time we ever had. Food is a little bit expensive but the quality of food is surprisingly worth more than that. We even received an anniversary gift from the restaurant, LOVE IT. Lightning can be better, but I would say Jabistro is one of the best sushi places in Canada.

The blowtorch sus...

The blowtorch sushi is heavenly and always makes my mouth water. If you sit at the sushi bar and opt for the nigiri sushi, they'll also offer to make you a piece at a time for maximum freshness. It's definitely my favourite sushi place in Toronto right now.

The sushi was really good but not worthy of a 4 or 5 star rating. Very similar to Miku. I've had better sushi. Cocktails were amazing!

The waitress must’ve been new.... seemed quite clueless. Had asked if we wanted miso soup “would you guys like miso soup to start before your food comes” to which all 3 of us said yes. But after our entrees came the soup was still not there and so we asked to cancel but she questioned us..... “oh it’s almost ready. Not sure if I can cancel”. It’s miso soup.... come on now.... Food was ok but not as good as before. We haven’t been back for awhile give so many other choices in Toronto but for some time we used to go more regularly and had liked the food and service at wJabistro. Seems both has slid quite a bit since then....

We have had dinner in the restaurant several times and plan on coming back whenever we are in Toronto. I really like the sushi and find it better than that offered by mid-level sushi restaurants in Tokyo. However, I was disappointed by the tiny amount of Uni on the little disc of rice. I recall JaBistro serving healthier portions. The sushi is really fresh and high quality. I like the rice/fish ratio and the rice temperature.

The food was delicious as usual but it took 15-20 minutes after seating at the table for our server to even acknowledge our existence. No greeting, no water, nothing. I had to try very hard to get any other staff to even come to our table to ask if someone could take our order. I saw other servers, the hostess and bus boys/girls attempt to tell her we needed to be served but I could see her behind the bar texting on her phone or fidgeting with some device. After that, our impression of her couldn't be revived. Sad, because I do love the restaurant but it was irritating to be ignored by staff, especially when serving only 2 people.

Me and my boyfriend came for celebrated his birthday in the night, and we were late for over 15mins because the traffic jam on the way. But they were so kindly to help us moving our reservation to the later time. And after the dinner, we planned to have cake with our family at home, so we did not order any dessert from their menu. But they still prepared a decoration plate with my boyfriend'name on it, which is so sweat ! And the food is delicious.

We came as a group of 5. When the bill came, it was rather funny. The original bill did not have the added tip, and we have decided among ourselves that 15% tip was definitely necessary as we did have 5 people. The server then came back with a bill and added this 18% tip on top , with the rule being parties of 6+. Which was totally off putting and incorrect to be exact. We did not have 5 people, and the fact that the server couldn't even count and had to give us a new bill , was actually hilarious. So if the server was to read this, NEXT TIME, COUNT AND DON'T EMBARRASS YOURSELF because you will get no tip. To purposely reprint a bill and charge us, and be incorrect about it is pretty greedy on their part.
