We went there for a light dinner on the fly and ended up with an amazing experience. Only 3 plates but worth the wait for a table, actually not so long, it was only around 10 minutes or less but the salmon carpaccio and the tuna tartar where spectacular! We had also Vodka Caipiroscas with an amazing taste. Go there... More

The food was unbelievable, but the service was really poor: they lost our booking, we had to wait for 15 minutes before they provided us with a drinks menu, the waiter gave us the wrong drink three times (and included all of them on the bill). On top of all of that they were quite unfriendly. I wouldn't let this... More

hi Laura, we rarely accept bookings, and when we do, we really cant give a window bigger than 15 minutes for the customer to arrive, as, as you saw, we have quite a few people dying to get in. We are, however, sorry about the bill mix up, which I believe we rectified in the end. So thanks for the... More

Exquisite prepared good looking dishes, under a cozy atmosphere in the heart of Ipanema/Leblon . A wide and complete variety of sushi and dedicated menu will satisfy anyone who is looking for something special.

This place was highly recommended. However, we thought it was overrated and very disappointing. My fish did not taste good and the other dishes were really boring. Service was slow, waiter was not very helpful. Would not go back and would not recommend.

Hi The4D, can you email us exactly what you ordered, so we can look in to it? We do have our own japanese dish innovations, which you might want to consider next time. Cheers! Cristiano Nogueira More

The sushi was good but I expected something very special considering all I have heard about this place and the price that is high. The service was terrible. Waiters could not help me or explain anything. I asked three times for the bill.

By far the best place for Sushi in Rio. Quite pricey, but totally worth it. Having searched around this place, I couldn't recommend this place more.

Sushi Leblon is a good restaurant but according to my opinion is overestimated. I would like to clarify that I tasted only sushi, which was good but my expectations were for something higher due to restaurant's fame.
