Omi.....god!

Visited John Lee's Omi Sushi on Carlton last Saturday March 7th. We are fans of his former establishment on Church Street and were really looking forward to trying his new place. The food is very good, but the service is awful. The omakase , which the entire restaurant seemed to order, came out a lot more slowly for our table than all those around us, most of which arrived after us and they also forgot to bring 3 of the courses (the couple next to us also experienced something similar with their dessert). Getting a drink or even their attention was like pulling teeth and it got worse over the course of our visit. After 2 hours and 45 minutes we were pleading with them to bring the remaining courses or at least the bill. We won't go back and it's certainly not because of the food........shame.

    I've actually found it to be the opposite -- service okay, sushi average, Korean-fusion dishes good.
