As good, if not better than any high end New York sushi. The kitchen put out top quality curry. The salmon sashimi was "like butter.". We split 3 of the custom rolls and we thrilled by each. I haven't found a better selection of sake, and the sakitinis were a great way to start the evening. I can't remember a better appetizer than the Hamachi. You must finish with the rice dough ice cream. One of the best dining experiences I've had in Florida.

We'd been eyeing Spy for awhile and finally decided to try the place out one Monday night. It was awesome, some of the best sushi we've ever had, and the food was great as well. We had the jalapeno hamachi belly to start, which was very nice. Everything was fresh and tasted great. Next we shared the special stew, with kobe beef and chinese vegetables in a tasty broth. We ordered 2 rolls, both of which were great; the domino roll and the martin solo. The domino was especially incredible. Finishing off the meal were the mochi, which were very nice as well. All in all everything was very good, and pretty reasonably priced considering the area and the type of food. Their basic rolls start at $8; there are other restaurants in St. Augustine with rolls that start at $10-12. For the price of a basic roll we got a specialty roll with much better ingredients. Go to Spy, it's really worth it.

Spy is awesome!!!! The sushi is the best that we have ever had, and we frequent Las Vegas's restaurants. The chef is amazing, the fish is incredibly fresh, and the service is wonderful. If you want delicious fresh steak or fish in a warm environment we highly recommend Spy!! Also, the new bartender makes great sakitinis!

We have eaten at this restaurant a number of times and always have an outstanding meal. They have very unique and delicious sushi roll as well as full entrees. Sushi is amazingly fresh. I also had a delicious Kobe beef steak there once. I love the espresso saketini--actually, I have tried many of the drinks on their menu and they are all delicious. The staff is always friendly and accomodating. Love the chic atmosphere, too! Great spot to go in St. Augustine and I highly recommend.
