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 ri
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.
staff was so nice and personable. made the experience 100x better
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.
Food was excellent----about the best sushi rolls I have ever had, unusual and delicious.
Our server was warm, friendly and helpful, all servers were friendly
And the ambience was fine----nice outside seating area and tables.
A perfect and special dinner!
Great service & great food. Can't wait to dine here again and actually enjoy the ambiance of indoor dining at Zama.
Although we sat outside - noise was not a bother! We had excellent sushi! Special bowl with seasoned rice and uni was definitely the winner. Surely we will go back
Best sushi I’ve found in Philadelphia. As good as Morimoto, if not better!
The special maki with scallops and uni sauce was to die for. Please bring it back often!
Gianna was incredible, amazing service and she truly took care of us. She made our night!
Beautiful restaurant but overpriced mediocre food
Food and service was amazing. Value of chef's tasting is also good. Will definitely be back!
Food was great but the service was exceptional.
Best sushi in Philly
Unique Maki rolls that you'll love trying. The Miso soup was definitely an upgrade as well. A few reasonably priced wines and an outdoor fall day made for a great lunch.
Amazing food. Cheesesteak style roll was an unexpected hit!
Amazing food. Great service.
Dining on the street isn’t my favorite but unfortunately necessary. Much better inside. But otherwise it was very nice and server was lovely. I used to eat inside here every single week
Get the chefs tasting menu and you won’t regret it!!
Excellent sushi. Innovative presentation.
Mediocre accross the board. Fried chicken dumplings were dry and overcooked. Pork dumplings were also uninteresting and over-cooked. My rainbow roll was the most mediocre roll I've eaten anywhere. The tuna tartare was ok but the rest of the meal was overpriced and uninteresting.
Great place to catch up and just talk. Service was great and we weren’t rushed. Food was great and service was even better. Will definitely be back.
Sushi orders should be split up on different plates because of covid. Not served family style. This is now twice that I had to remove all my sushi order and add to a separate plate after it was served. Please make this change. Thanks
One of our favorite restaurants in Philadelphia. Great outdoor seating setup, staff is super courteous and careful about safety rules. FOOD IS INCREDIBLE. This was our first outdoor dining dates since the pandemic and can't wait to go back again soon.
