Not impressed – Flies.
Not a good sign in a place with uncovered food floating around for who knows how long.
Favorite sushi place EVER! – In the first few days I moved to California, some friends took us to A'float Sushi and I was instantly hooked. It's a really fun place to take people who've never had the pleasure of picking delicious sushi dishes off of cool little boats floating around a table moat... As well as revisit the place again and again. The portions are great per dish because you can try a lot of different kinds of sushi without going broke, and for what they give you (and the great quality of the food they give), it's very reasonably priced. And if there's something you want that isn't in one of the boats, just let the chef or the waitress know and they'll bring it out to you. A couple times I've gone, the service was a little slow to get drinks, but the pros heavily outweigh the cons.
5 star restaurant. Excellent. – I loved my experice at this restaurant the first time I went to A float. My family and I were greeted instantly by the waitress and seated. We went early (5:00) so it wasn't too crowded. My 2 kids loved the idea of this restaurant of picking your favorite dishes off the floating ships. I tried almost about everything with my husband. We both agreed this was the best sushi we have tasted in a long time, ever since we left New Jersey. There's just so much variety and the prices are reasonably priced, unlike another sushi restaurant I went to a couple weeks ago, which charged $5 for a small bowl of miso soup!! The waitresses/waiters were all really kind and patient that we had stayed for 2 hours. Most other busy places would just give us the check. As time passed, and it was 7:00, the place got crowded. I could see why this restaurant had such good buisness. It was because it was really worth the wait.
Floats my Boat – This is one of my favorite places to go when im in a rush. I can literally be in and out of there in 30 min. This is a great spot if you are going to shop at the local retailers, or gunna go out to one of the local clubs. Because you can get a great meal at a fast food pace! The sushi is always fresh, and the Chefs (although not Japanese) are great at sushi making.
a great place to eat! – Wonderful atmosphere, loved the decorations in Afloat! I went there for lunch and was seated promptly at the sushi bar.
Food was wonderful and the waitresses were polite and fast too.
It's a PERFECT restaurant to go to after a little strolling in Old Town and being seated quickly and enjoying a great meal.
Wonderful restaurant! – Afloat is a cute restaurant set in busy Old Town, Pasadena. This certainly caught my eye and I went in with my family of 4. It was a Saturday night so we had to wait to be seated. The wait was brief though- we were seated about 5/10 min later.
My two children loved the sushi floating on the boats!! They both really enjoyed picking their own food from the bar and eating it! My wife and I had a great dinner too. Everything was decent priced and some even cheaper than what you would expect! Nothing was really expensive or overpriced.
Afloat Sushi is a casual restaurant so if you're not looking for some high class expensive jap restuarant, Afloat is definitely the place to try.
Service was pretty good. We did not have any problem ordering food, getting a waiter/waitress to come over, or being seated.
Food which I would recommend trying is the EEL RICE. It's delicious!! My wife and I both really enjoyed eating that. And my two little children really liked the FRUIT TART dish on the boats.
Overall, highly recommended.
Surprisingly good! – My boyfriend and I stopped here on a whim while walking around Pasadena. The sushi was surprisingly good! I enjoy this style of dining for a quick lunch and I was not disappointed. The plates that had sashimi on them were cheap for how much fish there was and for how good it was! I would stop here again!
terrific restaurant! – A float sushi is the best japanese restaurant around in the L.A. County! It has great service and a variety choice of food to choose from. I will be looking foward to going again next week. The waitresses and waiters are very polite and I like how the chefs stand in the middle of the bar and cooks whatever you tell them you want! I really like how the small boats float around and you can just take food off of it. The way the charge you is also really unique.
BEST SUSHI IVE EVER HAD!!!!!!!!!!!! – A float sushi makes the best sushi i ever had!!! There are litlle boats that are floating around and around in afloat sushi which makes it stylish, cute, and CONVENIENT!!! You dont even have to order sushi!! just take it!!!!! its that simple!!!! the other food in this restaurant is also very incredible. I would recommend the eel rice. Its sooo good!!!! All the dishes here are reasonably priced too! the waiters and waitresses are very polite; they are also very effecient. I would really rocommend you to eat at this restaurant if youre looking for a delicious meal but not that expensive either. I love this restaurant and cant wait to go there again!!!!!!
Eat at your own risk! – The food was great but unfortunatley I didn't notice until I was done eating that the sushi chef used the same dish cloth to clean the inside of the sink as he did the counter top where he made the Sushi!!!!
