Sushi Song – Key West: Review

My BFF Dianne loves sushi. So, for her birthday this year we went to Sushi Song on the corner of Truman Ave and Duval Street. When we arrived, we had to wait a bit before we were seated. In that time, we perused the specials board which was insanely long. But, it did have some interesting options with catchy names.

We also noticed that the place had a really strange vibe to it. Maybe the decor or the club music. Or the life sized Halloween decorations that made noise every time someone went bye. And, while there was seating at the bar, they would not let us order anything there. Just a very weird experience to start.

Anyway, when we were finally seated in the dining area, we ordered drinks and some appetizers. House salads, miso soups, and crab rangoon. Every sushi place I have been to makes their house salads and miso soups slightly different. I can say that I did enjoy these at Sushi Song. The crab rangoon was tasty as well. 

For dinner we ordered a myriad of rolls: Japanese bagel roll, surf and turf roll, spider roll, spicy tuna roll, dragon roll, and California roll. I have to say that I myself am not a huge sushi fan. But, I love my tuna, so I stick to what I like and on occasion I will try a roll that someone else has ordered. In this case, I tried the surf and turf which I unequivocally did not like. However, I did enjoy my spicy tuna as usual. 

Would We Go Again?

Presentation was gorgeous on everything. And most importantly, the fish was fresh. Service was decent. The total for dinner came to around $200. Pricey, but not bad for sushi in Key West. With the strange vibe, not sure that I would come here again. Especially since there are other sushi restaurants that I really like on the island. I really think it is geared more towards the twenty-something crowd.
