                      Food & drinks was good. Would like to sit on a seat with a back holder instead of those weird stool.

                      The young woman who served my date and I was only on her second shift. She made us feel very welcomed, was friendly and helpful, and overall provided excellent service. The food was excellent as well.

                      The best sushi in Ottawa every time, to the point that we forget to mention that the service is flawless. It is and we keep going back. Our spot for years now! I am a Tomo fan and so are my friends.

                      Too noisy. We had to scream to hear each others. But other than that the vibe was excellent and the food was very tasty! Enjoyed it:)

                      Been there a couple of times and we love this place. There was just that instance that one of our orders took a long time to come. Finished all our food and still that one food ordered was not served. So I had no choice but to cancel. Too bad because it was the signature dish. Still coming back though and hope to get to taste that dish.

                      It was fantastic, there was a younger crowd there later on. I think we caused most of the noise 😂. They were very tolerant of us and the food and service was impeccable!! I dream of the Tomo roll 😁

                      Food was excellent. Fun environment. If only they’d built a vestibule at the front door - spent the mes being blasted with icy wind :( Everting else was great though.

                      The ambiance was great even though, thanks to COVID, you feel like while sitting at your table you are in a prison cell with the glass partitions. A sign of the times. We all liked our meals and would go back again. The one thing I would say would be that with the sushi (rolls) on the menu in the restaurant (It isn't partitioned on the web menu), there were two sections, one was higher priced and if you read the items in each roll sounded like something worth the price difference. I found the higher-priced rolls were not that much more value, e.g. Kiss roll, which tasted more like a vegetarian avocado roll than the spicy salmon, which was the first item on the description list. The avocado was too thick. The second one on that list was the spider roll, where the amount of soft shell crab was too little to have a pronounced taste in the roll. Again these are observations that are getting fairy particular, but when I go back, I will order more off of the less expensive list of rolls as with them you could tell you were eating some seafood. Those were great.

                      Food and service was excellent but their verification of vaccination certificates was weak. He glanced at it quickly but did not ask for ID to verify DOB or name. We stayed away from community tables and were seated away from others in a booth which felt safer to us.

                      A few of our dishes were average, and a few were fabulous, particularly the Tomo slaw and seaweed salad. Server was excellent. Vibe of the restaurant was sooo good.

                      I’ve been to Tomo many times and it’s always been a great experience. Saturday night was the first terrible experience and it unfortunate. We arrived 9 minutes late to find out that they had given our table away. 9 minutes late! And we tried calling the restaurant twice to let them know we we’re running late but no answered the phone. Terrible customer service experience.

                      Pretty good, no where near fantastic but decent service and food was yummy at least for a light out with friends. Portions were a little small for the price but enjoyed it. Would consider going again for a night out with friends.

                      The sushi - specifically the tuna, was fantastic because it was freshly delivered (so we were told). So, go there on Thursdays if you want melt-in-your-mouth sushi.
