When we arrived, a majority of the tables were open. It took 20 minutes for wait staff to come to our table. When my husband said something about how slow service had been, the waiter made a joke and asked us if we were staying. We love Oishii's food and have been dedicated diners for years; however, I think the SMU location has gotten a little full of itself.
Amazing food. Awesome service.
Service was terrible! We went through choosing 5 wines before they finally had one in inventory and the waiter was not helpful at all in finding an acceptable wine that was available. I understand it was after a busy holiday weekend and there are supply chain issues but his attitude was not helpful in the least. When we finally received wine 45 minutes later, we proceeded to order our food. We explicitly stated that we preferred soups to come out first, followed by sushi and rolls. The incorrect soups were brought to the table at the same time as the sushi. We finally got the right soups and told them to bring the sushi later which they did. Very frustrating! We love Oishii but this was a terrible and frustrating experience. The waiter never owned up to any issues on his part or offered anything to make things better. Maybe some training is needed.
It would be helpful to return to a printed menu option as well. Looking at a long wine list or menu options on your phone is difficult. The original Oishii is once again offering printed menus which is helpful.
I love this place. Always try to pick up or get reservations when people come to town and want very good sushi and restaurant experience. Excellent and attentive wait staff and service every time. Very consistently good (excellent/wonderful/amazing). Really appreciate all they do. Perpetually craving the Tribeca roll at all times! Best roll ever.
Favorite sushi spot in dallas!! Great for a date night or chill dinner too!
Always a great experience
We sat for 11 minutes without a server asking for a drink order. The man that came was not our server, but I flagged him down. We asked about the half price bottle special, only to find out that the SMU location does it on Mondays, not Wednesdays. I was not overly impressed with the ambience either, so we left and went to the Wycliff location. Oishii Wycliff never disappoints.
The staff and food is always on point.
We love coming to Oishii because the quality of food is amazing! They also have plenty of sake options.
Everything was outstanding and delicious!!
Food has gone down hill and more filler being used IMO. Service was deplorable!! Was one of our favorite places, but may not be going back. Shame what it has become.
Probably the worst sushi I’ve ever had. Really mediocre fish quality and overpriced. Servers were friendly and the Christmas decor was a nice touch.
As always, the food was awesome. It always is.
The service just lacks so much. It’s not the servers fault. It’s just they can’t keep up with the orders. Both locations suffer from the same problem. We just waited too long for our food to come out.
I very much enjoy Oishii. The food is fantastic and I love the atmosphere. Not so loud that you can't have a conversation, and not so quiet that it's stuff. It's on the louder side, which I like. The menu is huge, and I found the sushi and sashimi to be awesome.
Food and drinks were amazing one of my favorite sushi spots in dallas. Staff was friendly and everything was ina timely manner.
Never disappoints. We always get the summer roll and the 42. There’s an off-menu sashimi platter at times—if the offer it, do it! Quality of fish was extremely good, especially considering what it would have cost at the top-end sushi restaurants.
Great food and service. Favorite sushi in Dallas
It was a ridiculous wait (2h) for two rolls while we watched every table around us get their orders on time. Never did get that complimentary glass of wine to appease us for the wait, either
Attentive service, sushi was delicious
Oishii is a great place. The sushi is incredible, I would recommend 44 roll and Cesar Roll.
It is cozy and it’s nice for a good meal.
Sushi and service is always amazing!
As usual…everything was superb!
The waiter did not serve us what we ordered.
He asked if we wanted a drink
He was absent during most of the meal.
Normally eat there at lunch.
Great rolls!! Royce, Caesar and Flower rolls were AMAZING!!
only complaint is that they don’t have dessert. They used to serve Mochi but they didn’t have any that night.
The #44 roll was amazing today.
Great selection of drinks and sushi. Also very good selection of other Asian dishes. Would definitely go again.
Sit at the bar, with a view of the sushi chefs! What a great show....it's so interesting how they make these complicated sushi maki rolls. Exceptional artwork, and outstanding flavor. We went without a reservation and were seated immediately at our choice of bar locations. Fantastic experience and wonderful food. Loved the Caesar Roll, the Hot & Sour Soup, and the Salmon Taco. Service was great, the chefs were so friendly and interactive. Can't wait to return!
Most horrible experience, very rude staff ,
Will never go back
Good atmosphere, food was tasty and enjoyable.
This location lacks consistency as the roles are often different than the original location. This location is also extremely loud - difficult for people at a 4-person table to hear one another.
great food, friendly service, comfortable atmosphere
Tried the Caesar roll this time- amazing! Everything delicious. Best sushi in Dallas for sure. This will continue to be our top pick for date night.
For whatever reason, our food did not come out. We pointed out our wait after 20 minutes... and it still wasn't delivered 15 minutes later. Meanwhile, the food for other tables as well as many take out orders kept coming out... The manager's solution was to simply cancel the food order. No comps. Will never return and will spread this message.
Again, it was so good. I had my usual 44-Roll, Smoked Salmon Philadelphia Roll and pan-seared potstickers. When only the best will do!
Amazing as always!
We go every week. Tonight they brought out my husband’s entree and took an additional 45 mins for my entree. I had to get up and complain. At the end talked again to manager and he did not even apologize. So disappointing.
Great sushi as always!
Had my usual 44-Roll, a Smoked Salmon Philadelphia Roll and some pan seared dumplings. As usual they we so good. Why go anywhere else?
The rolls were amazing!!!
This visit was extremely disappointing. Our food was not up to Oishii’s usual standards. Fish on the outside of the rolls was so thin you could see the soy paper — and they’re $20+ each!! It was not like this in the past. The increased prices should be matched with increased quality and service. The food just was NOT good. Super disappointed. I’m a frequent customer, but my last few visits have just not been the best. Not sure I’ll be back to the SMU location.
