Everything was excellent. I had a sushi platter, soft shell crab tempura, seaweed salad. The seaweed salad was particularly good, there were maybe four or five different types of seaweed, all served in separate little piles on the plate with a little garnish. It was different than what I typically had but really good. The soft shell crab and sushi excellent as well.

I love this place. Reasonably priced sushi and extremely well prepared and tasty sides. I tried the Seattle roll (uses real crab) and the grilled shitake mushroom (tasted like a steak I swear). The best part in my book is that they use real wasabi, not some watered down version. Our server was extremely attentive and had great suggestions. Atmosphere was great for a romantic dinner, slow jazz, dim lights, elegant tables. I don't know how long this place has been here but I'm sad I've been missing out until now, I will be coming back for sure.

Still my go-to spot for sushi in Bellevue, WA. Finally met the owners last week, they were awesome and very appreciative of seeing a returning customer - over 10 years now! Good people and good food... Check it out!

It's my favorite sushi place in Bellevue. Chefs tasting menu is very interesting and tasty! Fish is very fresh and tender. On the downside, sometimes the dessert is too simple for the tasting menu. Last time, disappointingly, chef chose cubes of fruit and chocolate fondue. On the higher end in terms of price.

Flo has delicious seasonal specials, happy hour, lunch and dinner menus. Beverage selections are decent, and service is excellent.

They have a terrific happy hour. All of the rolls are good as well as their tempura. Make sure you make reservations as they're always busy

Should have gone to Subway AND Jimmy John's! Sushi was ok. I ordered seattle sushi roll ($8) and lunch chicken teriyaki ($13) thinking I'd have leftovers for dinner as I'm working late. The roll was ok...the Yakima was laughable! The ONE thigh it included was pounded so thin I could see through it, and the 5 drops of teriyaki sauce they put on it didn't help. I guess that's why it comes with miso soup, so that you can dip the chicken to rehydrate it? Like I said, should have gone to Subway AND Jimmy John's, would have been cheaper to go to both places...

My favorite sushi in Bellevue or Seattle. Unique. I usually get the omakase but would consider it a $$$ place even if ordering a la carte

Reliably good food, attentive service, and a nice atmosphere. (+). Good omakase sushi and sashimi (+). Other good Japanese and Hawaiian/Japanese dishes. For example, the miso cod is excellent. (+). Consistently good service; attentive and friendly. (-) Parking can be difficult

I've been here a couple of times now and each time the food was excellent and the service was great. The seared salmon roll is fantastic and I tried the garlic edamame tonight which were absolutely delicious! Highly recommend.

Flew in from Tampa and this place got good reviews and was around the corner from our hotel I found it to be extremely average sushi Had miso soup it was also just average unfortunately Nothing we ordered was outstanding... $200 later I left feeling empty (emotionally lol)

The sashimi was perhaps the best, freshest, and highest quality I have ever had. The parking situation kind of sucks, but that won't stop me from going back next time I'm in the Bellevue area.

Food: The food was better than average (good), but you (should) get what you pay for. I had 4 orders of Niguri sushi (8 pieces) and two bottles of beer; it served me right, and I got what I paid for. The salmon was wild sockeye and the one on the left was a special: amberjack from Hawaii. I paid $51 for that, with two bottles of beer. Plenty of food. Service: mediocre. I sat alone on a Wednesday eve (7-8pm) and was served by a waitress. it was probably 80% full - felt busy. Atmosphere: bright and trendy, but conservative-modern. Cool but clean. Located on the corner, under an office or residential building. I was there in July at sunset and the sun shone pleasantly into the restaurant. Get a window table if you can, especially on an evening.

Been here yesterday evening with my colleagues. Ordered two rolls suggested by the waiter. Both were good. Service was very fast and good. Happy to have discovered a good sushi place!

Really yummy place with great atmosphere; definitely a good romantic spot. Their sushi is delicious, and Iâ??ve never been disappointed here. Definitely a little pricier than some restaurants in Bellevue, but worth it. Check it out!

Great place. Kind of expensive and the sushi is fairly average, but has some decent budget options.

I was blown away with the search salmon roll. it was perfectly seared and the flavors were spot on. Service was prompt and attentive even w a busy dinner hour. Overall a great experience!!!!

I invited the very important friend to the dinner for celebration. I asked for Omakase and it was fantastic. Very well presented, looked great and tasted fantastic. We had four bamboos of Sake, which were also great. The waitress (sorry I forgot her name) was very nice and gave us a good recommendation on which sake to choose. I'm from Japan and tend to very picky when it comes to Japanese food but this restaurant is the best Japanese upscale restaurant in Bellevue. Only downside, to me as a big beer drinker, is they do not have draft beers but they have good selection of Sake. Very happy with this restaurant.

I didnâ??t even get the chance to eat here I walked in to have lunch today and as I sat at the sushi bar there was flies in that case of fish I instantly left and said I would eat elsewhere the people were super nice but itâ??s not very clean and I was really bummed looking forward to having some sushi for lunch

Sylvie L.

Delicious, fresh , nicely presented dishes. We go there on a regular basis and it is always delicious. Courteous and knowledgeable staff

Great experience overall! I came here for the first time to celebrate my friends birthday. We had a reservation and I wanted to surprise my friend with a cake. They were more than happy to put the cake in the fridge while we ate dinner. Also, parking was easy to find. Free parking on the street after 6pm, 2-Hour parking before 6pm. Our waitress was consistently checking in on us, clearing our table when she could. The menu was full of items, big variety. I decided to try the Asian pear sake cocktail and wasn't disappointed! It had a more subtle sake flavor than I anticipated. We each got a different roll (pictured) and they were all so fresh. I was actually amazed by the rice, it was the perfect texture. After our dinner, they got the cake out for us and even put it on this classy cake stand to take out. I brought candles and they lit them as well. Everyone we interacted with was so polite! I'll be back!

Very nice atmosphere and fantastic food! The staff is very professional and nice.

This was recommended to me by a good friend as a nearby and great quality sushi. The atmosphere is great for dates or a quiet night. The first 2 times I've gone the service was impeccable and quality was a great. But the last time I went with a friend we ordered food and it took almost 30-40 minutes before we had to ask the server to pack up our food for us to eat at home. The servers didn't really care that we said we have been waiting that long and we wanted our food to go. I haven't gone back since my last experience but hopefully the next time I go it'll be better.

Leland Atwood

So good! we had the omakase with sake pairings. Fantastic! All the food was fresh and delicious. The sake pairing is worth the extra money. I never knew sake could be so delicious. You just have to know what you're doing. My fave sake was unfiltered served chilled, but I can't remember the name. I went with my daughter and she loved it as well. The service was very good. The food was spectacular.

Tim Bartz

Very fancy sushi spot. I've never seen a sushi restaurant interior like this one. No typical Asian decor anywhere to be seen. Very upscale atmosphere. Oh, sushi was good too

Tom Atkinson-Edwards

FLO is a good work lunch destination. We have often used it for interview lunches because it isn't too noisy. I recommend the bento special. Lots of tasty food and good value for money.

Jeff Price

Amazing food and service. This time I picked up dinner for my family, and they loved the California rolls, I loved the Seattle rolls

Terri S.

Delicious sushi. Very fresh sushi rolls and delicious miso soup. I highly recommend this lovely restaurant in Bellevue.

Mary V.

An early Mother's Day lunch with my daughter who was visiting from Anchorage. Very fresh and artistically presented

Evita May

FLO is tops, honestly. What a terrific experience we had tonight. Just delicious. And they have been doing this for 16 years? Fresh as can be.

Melanie J.

Amazing bento boxes! My husband & I had lunch there today and we both got bento boxes, one with the Seattle roll and one with sashimi.. both were amazing! Probably the best bento box I've had in a very long time. I cannot wait to come back for dinner

My favorite restaurant in Bellevue. Normally I choose myself the sashimi ans sushi. Yesterday had for the first time the menu. Awesome. Will choose that more often!

Sarah Schleisman

Wonderful food. The nigiri (tuna & some special from Japan) were so fresh I could have exclusively eaten that. Got 2 rolls from the specialty menu and a Seattle roll. Next time I'd skip the fried roll and do more fresh fish.

Gary Gregg

Flo is a fabulous, and cozy Japanese restaurant on 106th in Bellevue. I ate alone last Friday because my friend missed the date, but we tried again today. Had a Bento box on both occasions. Highly recommended!

Rusty Wilson

Absolute WORST experience I've ever had at what is supposed to be a decent sushi restaurant. Had to wait for almost 1 hour for our order to be ready and it wasn't even busy. On top of the long wait the staff/management was extremely rude when we called them out on how long the order took. Never going back. 2 thumbs down!!

Wilhelm Ostern

Each fish dish was fresh.. soft.. smooth for the palate.. ð??
