After we received our appetizers, the two waitresses on duty ignored our table for two hours. I had to go to the bartender to pay our tab. When I complained, the manager on duty was hostile and abusive. We were the only people of color (African Americans) in the restaurant. We've gone here at least 10 times in the last year... Seven of the ten times we were treated indifferently... this time was the worst, and the last!

Our experience was bad and reeked of racism!

We weren't greeted until about 15 minutes after we were seated. The service was not very good.

I have brought guests to Nami five times now in the past year. I won't be coming again. I find that no matter when I come in nor with whom (though I have always been seated in the bar, due to coming either early or late), the servers treat us like we are at best a tolerable form of the plague. Having worked at an excellent restaurant for 25 years (D'Amico Cucina, once just down the street), it is hard for me to tolerate indifferent service, especially when you are serving food that many customers don't understand. There is no love nor enthusiasm for the food, nor is there any effort to help the customer select something they'll love. There is just an order taker and a food deliverer. Too bad

The server was not very attentive, he double charged us and he was taking shots with the bartender behind the bar. Also, at one point I watched him blow his nose and then deliver food to a table without washing his hands. Gross!

Sushi was ok but not great

From Our Editors

The passion for fresh fish is reflected through Nami Sushi’s aquatic motif and even in the name— nami means wave in Japanese. The fish is so delicious that CBS Local hailed the restaurant as on of the best sushi spots in the Twin Cities in late 2010. A marble sushi bar runs the length of the dining room, chilling the colorful slabs of tuna, salmon, and octopus that sushi chefs mold into signature nigiri, specialty rolls, and abstract self portraits. Behind the scenes, a kitchen staff churns out hot entrees such as the new york strip teriyaki, shrimp tempura, and sautéed ginger chicken.
