I just saw a pretty good review on the Coming to you live on the dining review thread.

I think it was yesterday so a page or 2 back.

I just cancelled my 10/6 7:30 ADR and booked Flying Fish. I KNOW I'll enjoy my meal there! We will perhaps try CG next trip and give them more time to get their act together.

I am from NY and have had good sushi in and around the city and the Spicy Kazan roll is one of the best I have ever had. Also while it isn't cheap it is pretty darn big and never felt cheated

If you aren't a huge eater do you think you could make a meal out of it?

I was thinking the same about sushi....we are thinking of sharing the Kazan roll, maybe also the California or the tuna. Along with maybe two appetizers looks like enough food? The cost is literally insane though.

Will they box up the kids sushi if we want to take it back to the kids? D you think it will be okay/ not stale or fall apart if we give it the next day?

As fired up as people got about this place it's interesting to see how many don't like it. My solution is simple - don't read the reviews. People are more likely to post about bad experiences than good. My reservation for next weekend isn't being canceled because someone in Winnipeg or Phoenix said the food was bad.

I think if you had that and bread and dessert that might be enough. Definitely if you did like that and an app or flatbread or even shared a flatbread with someone

Yeah, at $26 its priced like an entree for sure! one of the large specialty rolls here is usually $10-12 and is usually enough for for me - especially if I get a nigiri with it or miso & salad. When we go out my husband and I are usually stuffed if we get two entrees to split; an appetizer and an entree is usually enough as well. Heck, when we get take out curry ONE is enough WITH LEFTOVERS. lol!

I just got back from our trip last Monday, I am STUNNED at some of the bad reviews that CG is getting. Out of the 4 of us we agreed that it was the best place we ate while at DW....we took at cruise to the Bahamas so it didn't beat Palo in the grand scheme of things. We ate there the 2nd night it was open and everything was better than it has been in the past.

We have eaten at CG every year when we go to DW and we were very happy with the menu, the changes, and how our food was prepared. I have gotten the filet before and was not very happy with it but this time it was perfect. The SK roll was top notch as always.

Please don't cancel your dining reservations based on a few reviews. We will book it again next year.

Thanks for your comments and glad you had a good meal. What were your thoughts on portion size?

We were on the DDP so we were stuffed at the end of the meal, but to me portion size was exactly the same as it used to be. We didn't see any difference in that aspect of the meal.
