Went there for the happy hour. Got there at 4:30 and were lucky as we were the last people they let in. Service was fantastic! Waitress went out of her way to make sure we got our order in during happy hour and gave us...some helpful advice. Food was probably the best sushi and sashimi I've ever had! FANTASTIC! I regret not getting a desert to go as my waitress advised! Advice for happy hour: --We parked at the Honolulu Zoo. I should have planned for three hours as we had to wait in line for quite some time and I ended up having to run to the car to feed the meter. --Get there early --Have a plan for what you want to order --Get the desert, too! --Listen to your server!More

The food was great! We had the Dragonfly Roll, Caterpillar Roll and Spicy Hamachi Roll. Our favorite was the Dragonfly Roll, but they were all good. Excellent service. We had a waitress in training and she was very personable and friendly and is the one...who recommended the Dragonfly Roll. We will return!More

One would expect good, fresh sushi when visiting Hawaii, but Sensei Sushi ans Seafood (located on the 3rd floor of the Waikiki Marriott- next to DK Steakhouse) is a jewel in the crown of this seafood paradise! We ate here twice in the course of...a week, believing the first (outstanding) visit the night we arrived was just a remarkable coincidence, alignment of the moon and stars, or some higher benefactor ensuring our first night meal on the island was memorable. We were tired (3 hour time difference) and hungry after a 6-hour flight and hour-long wait/ride to the hotel. It was late, but Sansei Sushi was open, so we stopped in for a quite bite. The greeter was welcoming and the service was great. We informed we just wanted something light, our waitress recommended the 69 Roll, to which we added an order of edamame. The roll was fabulous... fresh, tasty, flavorful and just the right touch of glaze and sauce. Because the first experience was such a delight, we decided to try again for dinner a few nights later. NOTE: Make a reservation!!! This place is POPULAR! (Guess you can't hide a great restaraunt for long.) We showed up for dinner around 5- without a reservation. The receptionist informed us they were booked solid, but gladly put us on a waiting list and said we would be sent a text when a table came open. 30 minutes later we were seated at the bar and receiving phenomenal service (ask for Jade)!!!! We had endless refills of passion fruit tea, the caprese salad, the spicy tuna crunch roll, and - of course, the 69 roll (which is topped with the freshest Unagi we've ever had). We also tried the spicy sansei edamame...WOW!!!! Everything was prepared to perfection and served with special attention to the the visual presentation. What an amazing meal and the service - outstanding!!!!! If you happen to be in Honolulu's Waikiki area, you've already decided to treat yourself to an island adventure. Take the next step and experience an outstanding meal in a warm and welcoming setting where customer service is taken to heart! (And tell Jade we said Aloha!)More

Great spot located in the Marriott Terrific appetizers The shrimp and calamari are outstanding. Nice outdoor seating across from the beach. Order slowly to avoid all food coming at once. There is a large menu but we stick to the appitizers which are very filling....Great spot outside at sunsetMore

Wonderful food. Located in MARRIOTT. Ask for an outdoor table and arrive before sunset. We love the dynamite shrimp and the calamari salad. Generally order several appitizers which fills us up

The menu was expansive but the foods did not come out looking like the menu or the advertisement. Enjoyable but overpriced.

Good service, fresh ingredients, great view if you sit outside facing the ocean. However, sushi is mediocre at best. Little flavor, and some rolls were too spicy with too much mayonnaise.

Brought friends visiting the island for the first time for a Tuesday dinner to try sushi. Nice family restaurant and a friendly wait staff. Large menu was a bit of a challenge to work through initially but, with a little help, we found few appetizers...to share (crispy fried calimari and the seafood ravioli) and a sushi plate that fit each of our tastes. All were prepared well and did not disappoint.More

We have eaten at Sansei on the Big Island and Maui. Love them both, so we were excited to try this location. It’s not as good, not by a long shot. Very heavy on the sushi items here, however the rolls are extremely good. So...go for the sushi, the entrees were just sort of so-so and not a lot of options. I didn’t care for the space. No patio and felt like being in an office building.More

Just contact the bar, I'm sure they will share it with you. Even if anyone has the recipe most bartenders change it to their liking. Cheers!
