6/25/2016 was the last night for service at Ocean Blue in Carrollwood. We enjoyed chatting with our friendly waiter but the sushi was average, nothing to rave about. Best parts of the night - we didn't have to tend to our toddler, our waiter was great, no wait for seating Tips for O.B. if they open another location - be... More

The sushi and service was actually really good but I was put off by the intense smell of cleaner/bleach in the restaurant. Usually a bleach smell makes me think "clean" but in a restaurant...I don't know, it's not something that works up an appetite. We ended up moving outside because it was so cold in the restaurant, and I was... More

My husband and I look forward to being able to have fresh delicious sushi during the week. The first time we went it was 11:00pm on a Sunday night and the place was decently busy but no wait for a table. The second time was again at 11:00pm but this time on a Thursday night. We had to wait a... More

Good miso and tuna takati besides slow service the wait was worth it. Sat outside, server was good. Food was fresh and I'd return

This was my 2nd visit here and each time we were freezing cold. Although the food and service were great, the environment was questionable. On today's visit I went to the restroom for the first time and was so uncomfortable that I will not be back. All I thought was if this is what I am allowed to see, what... More

Went for our weekly ' date night' out and decided to try for the first time this local restaurant. The ambiance was dark and night clubby - It seemed almost sterile and in need of a remodel. We are not sushi eaters, although the menu on line had many cooked sushi items, and teriyaki and noodle dishes. The miso soup... More

This place is trying to present itself as a premium restaurant. Definitely their prices are the evidence of that. However, the sushi is just so-so. Most of the rolls are some kind of variation of a spicy tuna roll. The service is OK, no more than that. The beer they have on tap are mostly from anheuser busch stable, something... More

This is a perfect example of a restaurant trying to be high end that is not. The decor is horrible, felt like we walked into a restaurant that is under construction. Took forever for them to take our drink order then even longer to receive our drinks. The drinks were very expensive and watered down. We had a party of... More
