Good customer service and nice atmosphere, however, some sushi’s rice was not great. Hope next time will taste better one ;)

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.

Food is fresh and service is fantastic, they provide an introduction to each kind of fish and their body part, this unique experience is indescribable.

Very underwhelming over all. Not a lot of menu options and spelled my boyfriends name wrong on his birthday “treat” that seemed to be a broken off piece of cheesecake. Tables really closed to each other and bright lights making for a not so intimate evening for anyone present. Really wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone

I have been recommended JaBistro and was very disappointed at my experience when I decided to try it out. I will try and organise my feedback in a way that is constructive to your team and reflective of my experience and why I wouldn’t recommend it to others: Staff did not explain the menu very well, and when asked what the set menu was, we never received a clear explanation. Confusing. I asked for Soya sauce for our blowtorched rolls and was told that they already contained soya. This should be explained when the dishes are introduced before I order. I should also be offered more and not made to feel dumb. I live in Hong Kong and have spent a lot of time in Japan. I’ve never been met with this type of pretentiousness (my partner feels the same way and she was born in Asia). Our server told us to try the wagyu beef for ~16 per piece to compare it to the “bad” wagyu you put in your 6-piece roll. I don’t think a waiter should be trying to up sell us on expensive individual pieces of wagyu by saying the other wagyu is bad. Why is it even on the menu if your own staff think it’s bad? Tables are not one crowded. I got to know my neighbours (unintentionally) much more than my partner’s day because there was about 2 inches on either side of us. Your atmosphere isn’t great. Could use some improvements. Conclusion: We were in an out of your restaurant in less than 45 minutes. We would usually stay for at least 90 minutes, have a few drinks and enjoy the atmosphere. We both couldn’t wait to leave. For context, last night we went to Lee restaurant and spent 4x as much as we did at your restaurant. It’s not perfect either but at least we felt like sticking around and ordering more and drinking more.

We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and had the $99 Omakase which we did 3 years ago for his birthday. Both times the meal was fantastic and the service was wonderful. All of the seafood was incredibly fresh and delicious, and the drink pairings were perfect. Need to come more often. Great place!

Restaurant is not flexible enough to accommodate the food portion to make the sushi platter enough for 3 people by paying extra. Same new menu for a long time, food is boring,

Quality is job one at this elegant Entertainment District sushi and sashimi house, whose clean, minimal, modern take on this culinary favourite makes it a sweet choice for impressing a date or just indulging a personal appetite. On-line reviews resonate with declarations that this is “the best sushi in the city.” Taste, texture and colour are given equal billing by genius chefs trained in the time-tested art of this food’s preparation. JaBistroll — a sensual adventure in salmon, snow crab, uni, cucumber and tobiko — gets special mention, as does the famous sashimi platter. Seating is fairly limited, so reservations are recommended. Sit at the bar and catch a masterclass in Japanese culinary creativity.
