Amazing sushi! Best in the city that I’ve had!
Our server was very poor. He barely checked on our table, we had a food runner who was way more attentive and we would have rather tipped. We were very disappointed in the service.
Food was amazing. Ate outside. Service abs staff fabulous.
Great food, clean facility, waiter knowledgeable and helpful, I will be back!
Sushi and service was great! Our server was very accommodating and knowledgeable. I’d go again
After 1 hour waiting for our food (2 persons order) we canceled it and the server didn’t even apologized. Seems like waiting an hour for your food is normal thing for them.
The folks at Zama really helped us celebrate our son’s 13th birthday with style! The service was amazing, the recommended dishes were perfect (king crab rolls topped w scallop sashimi!) and the dessert was the right ending.
Beautiful night, Beautiful people, Beautiful food
We were outside in the gut. Only gave ambience 3 stars for that reason. Everything alway delicious
Great experience. Staff is super knowledgeable. All dishes were wonderfully crafted and fresh. Will be returning soon!
Great sushi, very fresh fish. I will 10/10 be coming back often!
Still continues to be the BEST sushi in Philly. Love it
Dessert is a must have here, fluff dumpling 🤤🤤 i don’t usually do dessert at Asian restaurant, do not skip!!
Amazing as always
Nice sushi spot right next to Rittenhouse Square. Upscale and very clean.
Our go to place for Japanese food in Philly, great location, lovely atmosphere and nice service. We had eaten outside in September, it was nice to dine inside.
Wait staff was rude and unpleasant upon arrival. Food was good
U can never go wrong with Zama
Always great food and even greater service.
Everything we ordered was great. Wonderful Japanese spot
Went out for valentines. It took almost 2 1/2 hours to get all our food. We got a multi-course menu, but some courses had 30 minutes or more between. It took so long. I ordered a beer, and 30 minutes later, still waiting for the next course, the waiter dumped one in my glass and said ‘not sure if you ordered this, but take it’ somewhat rudely. As a 200$ meal for two and a special occasion, disappointed. We left more than 3 hours after arriving...
I understand that it was Valentine’s Day but our waitress was awful. She barely checked up on us and waited over 20 minutes to take our order. She never let us know that the rolls were going to take over an hour to come out and we found out when we overheard her talking to another waitress. Other employees were checking up on their tables and offering free appetizers to compensate for the wait but we were never offered the same treatment. She did not even give us our food and had other people run it for her. We ended up paying for the food we already ate and left before the rolls came out. We probably saw her twice throughout the 2 hours we were there.
I loved the food and the atmosphere!! Definitely coming back!
We had a great Valentine’s Day experience. Service was great sushi was great!
It was my birthday dinner, I somehow accidentally cancelled my reservation but the manager went above and beyond to accommodate us. He made my birthday extra special. The food was great, drinks were awesome! Excellent experience! Highly recommended.
Great place to go with a date to try lots of dishes... like 10 of them!!
I was so excited to finally come here but this place is terrible.. The sushi isn’t fresh and
The food was excellent
Wonderful food, service and space! We had pork dumplings, a sushi roll that was a special for the evening, and the new york strip. All fantastic.
It was our first indoor dining since March 2020. Everything was perfect and ran smoothly. The dishes and sake were delicious and fresh and we kept ordering more! What I wonderful way to experience our first indoor eating adventure. Thank you! We will be back.
My friend and I both loved it!
This is a wonderful place. We highly recommend the chef's tasting menu. Like most, we fall into a pattern at Japanese restaurants in what we order. The tasting menu gave the chef free rein and his preparations were delightful and different.
Great experience outdoors meeting COVID requirements
Had the chef tasting with a friend and it was phenomenal.
Fantastic Food ! Tasty Wines ! Great Service and really nice atmosphere !
Simply perfect from the attentive service to delicious food
Great service. Some of the best sushi in Philadelphia
It is always solid and delicious. It has been one of the best Japanese restaurants in Philadelphia for over 10 years.
