Comment: Food is great, but a little on the pricier side in terms of value ratio IMHO. Paid street parking is sometimes available

Comment: Weve loved Cafe Mochi for years!The Volcano Roll and gyoza are absolute must-haves, as are the Vietnamese iced coffees. I think we prefer the vegetable crispy spring rolls over the pork, but Im glad we tried the pork! Another awesome experience as always.

The sushi rolls are creative and fresh, and the happy hour deals are a great value. Service is generally quick and friendly, making it a great choice for a casual meal.

Comment: Walked in for dinner with my friend and her two children. We waited at least 7-10 minutes for an host to greet to us. When the host returned they spoke to and offered the person that came in after us table service. My friend mentioned aloud that we were also waiting to be seated. The energy was off and didn’t make us feel welcomed not enthusiastic to dine in. A few minutes later another staff member approached us to offer us the table next to the front door which wasn’t the best option for us with two young children so we left.

Comment: First time here. The food was amazing. Really great sushi and other tasty dishes. Prices are pretty good for what you get.The gyoza was really great and they have a jalapeno ponzu sauce (one of our friends requested it so Im not sure what it would come with) that is delicious for flavor and a little zip.One of my tests for new Asian or fusion restaurants, after hearing a famous Japanese chef talk about it and why its so important to do it well, is tempura. Just has the right crunch, not too much batter/breading and the proper temp, and lets the battered ingredient shine through along with a good dipping sauce. These guys have this down, we got the veggie tempura appetizer and it was out of this world.I get it, service is tough because of short staffing and more. Were patient. But theres were a couple things that I dont understand. We all ordered cocktails. They were great. So much so that a couple of folks at our table ordered another. But the drinks that came were not the same drinks. Okay, theyre busy, it happens. And those different drinks were good too, so thats fine, we rolled with it. But then the waiter forgot my wifes wine and half of our order. By that time we just ate what we had because the additional stuff was stuff we wanted to try and would have taken it for lunch the next day. Pretty significant misses since we werent in a hurry and didnt press like that.Well be back because the food is that good. Im hoping the service issues were a one off.

Comment: Good sushi and great location. We love going here for sushi. The selection of rolls is great and fairly reasonable. The Godzila and the Volvano are two of my favorites, with the spicy shrimp and tuna coming in a close third. The location on the Grand business district give great outdoor dining in the spring, summer, and fall. People watching is as good as the meal. If you get the hankering for sushi and dont know where in the city to go, go give the sushi chefs at Cafe Mochi a visit. You wont be disappointed

Comment: 82 dollars for 4 rolls and a fried rice. The rolls were fine. The tempura rolls were mushy and cold. Waste of money. Will hunt for the next spot. Update. Throwing up at 130am repeatedly right. I didn’t eat anything all day this has to be it. God bless my stomach is wrecked. I eat a lot of sushi. Never felt this poor before after eating it. Definitely finding a new spot.

Comment: I’ve never been here or stepped foot in the door. I simply called to try and place an order and forgot to let the man who answered the phone know that it would be 2 orders instead of just 1, he was very rude and if you’d like people to eat at your restaurant it’s custom to be kind. I understand you may be busy which was clearly stated however it’s not okay to take it out on everyone else.

Comment: Ordered the “forget me not Iced coffee” and the lemon drop roll and as avid sushi eaters we were more than pleased. The name and outdoor aesthetics had me weary- it gives off a bakery vibes, so we didn’t have high expectations.The lemon drop roll was so light, fresh and paler cleansing. Something I’d absolutely go out of my way to eat just that. Thank you and cannot wait to come back

Comment: Very sad, as I had high expectations for this place. I ordered a drink that included vodka that I wanted substituted with rum. The waiter brought me out a double shot of Tito’s VODKA in addition to the drink I ordered that also included VODKA. No rum at all!! My $7.50 drink turned into a $16 drink with the additional charge of the double shot that I did not ask for! My drink cost more than my meal! The waiter also brought me out a soda that I did not ask for. I truly believe that he was not listening to my order at all. He just put in what ever the hell order he wanted to put in. When I brought the errors to his attention there was no attempt to take accountability for his wrongdoing. Absolutely ridiculous. Everyone isn’t trying to get over! I wasn’t looking to not pay for my order, but to pay for what I ordered!!!

Comment: The atmosphere is dark and muggy. Bugs flying around and crawling on the walls. Overall overpriced and sushi was lukewarm and not well prepared. The rolls were not rolled well, not uniform, and were one dimensional in flavor. The server was great but overall not worth dropping $100 here for a few rolls of mediocre sushi. Also it was not very clean.

Comment: This establishment is terrible. Please save your money and health. The sushi is abysmal, the tables are sticky and the service is neglectful. Even tho the server only saw our table for about 1 minute total, the restaurant reserves the right to charge 20% gratuity even though my food and experience was terrible. DO NOT GET SICK HERE.

Comment: Feel like eating out of an aquarium? Look no further! Not only will you get the scummiest sushi, but the service matches! Less than one minute of interaction cost a 20 tip because they “reserve the right” (which it isn’t) to charge for a table of 5 even when 2 of the kids with you don’t order anything and you don’t get any drink refills AND bus your own table. It’s a lesson learned I’m just dreading the almost certainly impending vomit that’s already making my stomach turn.

Comment: I really enjoyed the food! Unfortunately they ran out of sushi rice, which caused our wait time to be much longer than expected, and other peoples dishes at our table came out 30 minutes faster than the sushi orders, which made the dining experience a bit awkward. Non-fish rolls were on the pricier side. Fried rice was great, as was the teriyaki chicken roll. Id be happy to give them another try! Sat outside in a very pleasant patio area.

Comment: Everything was great, up until the food started coming out. To give some background, by the time the food came out, we had only 15mins to eat and pay before moving onto the next stop for my bachelorette party. We ended up paying for $70 worth of food that we did not order or even receive. We got charged for every little mark we made on the menu, crossing off what we didnt want, eraser marks, and indentations from the pervious page. Whoever put our order in, needs their eyes checked, or at least ask about it. And when we tried to dispute the problem, we were told that it was our fault for not knowing how the ordering worked. Even if there was no quantity next to the sushi, we got it. We honestly thought we got someone elses order along with ours. So just be prepared to get charged for things you didnt want.

Comment: This is the benchmark for STL sushi, and has been for years now. Its my go-to if I want to sit inside a restaurant and eat sushi.The other stuff is good too, but I honestly dont know why youd mess with anything but the sushi.I think at this point Ive had every roll on their menu. I like to get a few traditional rolls, and then treat myself to one of the specialty rolls. The volcano and fuji rolls are my favorite specialty rolls, but really you cant go wrong with anything.This place has been so good for a very long time, and they show no signs of slowing down. They seem to have the same people working there since the dawn of time, and I am sure thats why they are so consistently good.

Comment: I have been coming to Cafe Mochi for ten years now, and I will never go anywhere else to get sushi. As a lifelong resident, I’ve been to nearly every sushi restaurant in Saint Louis; Cafe Mochi is the superior establishment. I might go as far to say it is my favorite restaurant in Saint Louis. The quality of the fish and the expertly crafted rolls are what keep me coming back. There’s just something about these sushi rolls that’s different from everywhere else, and I can’t place what it is. They’re so rich, fresh, and flavorful. The staff is very agreeable as well—haven’t experienced any issues personally. Their non-sushi menu is excellent as well. I love the udon noodle dish. I recommend this place to everyone I can, and I hope this review is helpful. 5 out of 5 stars for me.

Comment: We have ordered from Cafe Mochi using delivery services and we really enjoyed the food. However, we finally were able to dine in. The whole experience was enjoyable from start to finish. I like that they have an indoor and outdoor space, but we chose to sit inside because...St. Louis summer. The atmosphere inside was nice and had a great vibe. The host was funny and friendly. Our server was also friendly and had the perfect balance of making sure we had what we needed but not always there asking questions. We had the hardest time deciding what to order because it all looked good. We ended up ordering five different types of sushi and it was all delicious with enough left over to have for lunch the next day. Weve decided not to order delivery from Cafe Mochi. Were going to there instead!

Comment: Food was good, did have to wait for a long time. But I’m giving 3 stars because of the waiter in the Zelda belt. He was extremely weird and had snarky comments.

Comment: We went there for early dinner, service was slow, placed our order, waited for about 30 minutes, then surprise, the chef had made us the wrong order , we couldn’t wait another 30 minutes for the correct order to be made, because we had to leave to Chicago immediately.Here, you get expensive sushi at the lousy quality of an all you can eat place, and they add a 20% tip to the check automatically and without your permission without providing hardly any service.Highly Not Recommended

Comment: I really want to love this place, it’s walking distance from my house and the food is pretty good. But both times I’ve been in it is terribly slow. We were seated for 20 minutes before anyone spoke to us. Then put in our full order immediately and waited another 30 minutes before our drinks came. We had to ask for someone to check on them. I would say they were just short staffed that night but I we had the same experience the first time we visited. Doubt we will be back again.

Comment: The food here is delicious and the service is great. They got my order wrong but quickly resolved it. The drink was a little pricey since it was really weak. My only other complaint is it seems the sashimi is the same cut they use on the nigiri. I worked at a sushi and hibachi restaurant for 7 years and the sashimi should have been about double the thickness than the sashimi I received. Everything still tasted amazing. The environment is odd. They had my friend and I seated in a room off to the side. No one else was in there. It was nice though because it wasnt loud in the dining area nor too quiet. In the future Id probably get carry out. Still, I highly recommend eating here. Try it yourself!

Comment: I’ll start by saying Cafe Mochi is usually one of our favorite sushi places in Stl, but we are extremely disappointed with our food today. We ordered in for a birthday, and was very disappointed to find that the specifics we discussed over the phone were not included in our order. When I brought it to their attention, I was asked if I could just wipe it off instead being offered a discount, or for it to be remade. Four rolls for $58 were not made correctly, and after having to ask for a discount we were given $10 off our food. We spent too much money to not be accommodated better. We’ll find another establishment to place large sushi orders with moving forward!🤷🏾‍♀️

Comment: Was going to a nearby business when I notice this location. The garden area looked a little busy and very appealing but food looked amazing. Decided to give it a try and I must say it was a GREAT decision.The staff was amazing and efficient even though they were busy. Within minutes we were taken to a table in the garden area. They soon came back with waters. No much later she came back to take our orders. We waited about 15 minutes before we got our food. Was very surprised how fast it came out.We order two rolls, soup and tempura vegetables. The pho bo soup was really taste. It was made really well and the portions were big. The tempura was served on a bed a rice. Tempura was crunchy and tasted really good. We also order the spicy tuna roll and the volcano roll. Both tasted good and were good portions.I would definitely go back and recommend to anyone.

Comment: I was really disappointed with my meal here. I hear this place is good for sushi, and I think if you visit that is what you should get. I got the Soft Shell Crab, Chicken Tempura, and a noodle dish. The crab was not fresh, flattened, and fried so much that you couldn’t really taste the meat. I was expecting more from the Chicken Tempura, but it seemed like low quality meat and was super oily/salty. On a better note, my waiter was incredibly nice, had a great sense of humor, and made me not feel as bad about the bill and my unsatisfied stomach.

Comment: Normally order sushi slowly and each pick out different things to order. Two women and our son. It was a treat for us. The food was good, but the service was atrocious. He poured water in a sprite and was pointed out and never replaced. Our food arrived and nothing to eat with. I went to front and got this. When asked for the small bowl (Japanese ramekin? ) to stir Wasabi and soy, we got bread plates. Never got to order more because he never came back . I fully realize the industry is understaffed but a manager type person was walking around and noticed our service and she mainly delivered what she could, but we were so disappointed. We will never return. With the stigma of women low tippers I try to break this by a high tip %. Even with this I left 15%. The bill was $30. It could have trippled.

Comment: My partner and I had a date night at Cafe Mochi about a week ago. Neither one of us had been here before. We were newbies and had a great time. The wait staff was inviting upon entering. We were taken to a table upstairs as the downstairs area was closed off. The ambiance of this establishment was very intimate and cozy. There was some nice art throughout on the walls. The menu had lots to choose from and I couldnt decide what I wanted. We definitely sampled each others food as well. It didnt take long for our food to come once we did get our order in. The portions were good sizes and filling.You do have to wear your mask until seated inside the restaurant. Theres some outside seating as well. But we sat inside. The establishment is wheelchair accessible for the accessing the first floor even though it was closed off, but Im unsure if they had elevator to get you to the second floor. The outside seating maybe best. Parking is usually limited coming to any place on South Grand because the restaurants are so popular. There is parking on the street at a meter or in the residential neighborhood. You can bring your family including children to this establishment.#Tonetta #couplewithsoul

Comment: First I tried ordering online but they were not taking orders. So I went to the restaurant. It took 25 minutes to place my order and well over an hour for my takeout to be brought to me. No one came to say anything and they kept walking past like I was not there. Even if they are short staffed it should never take over an hour to simply get your order. I definitely will not be spending my money here again.

Comment: We decided to try Cafe Mochi based on all of the great reviews, but we were incredibly disappointed and will never be back. The inside of the restaurant seemed very unclean and unwelcoming with an overwhelming fish stench. (Yes, I know its a sushi restaurant, but this was appalling. We should have left right then) We decided to sit outside in the heat to avoid the smell.Our service was pretty bad the whole meal and our server kept bringing the wrong food to the wrong tables. He even set our food down at another guests table before they called him back over and said it wasnt theirs, then he brought it directly to our table. (If he hadnt have set it down in front of them and let them touch the plates we would have considered it an honest mistake. But once those plates were left at the table they should not have been given to other guests.) We had an appetizer and four sushi rolls, and we were disappointed with everything. All of the crab was immitation even though the menu didnt state that. The pink geisha drink was good, but I would compare it more to strawberry milk than a cocktail as there was hardly any alcohol in it, but for $7 I wasnt surprised.When it finally came time to pay our server took our check presenter with our card sticking out and set it on another table right in front of other guests while he took their order. It was completely unprofessional and made us very uncomfortable, as anyone could have grabbed it.  If thats how carefree he is with our card while we can see it, what does he do when we cant see it?! Overall a horrible experience. We wouldnt reccomend taking the risk of trying this place out.

Comment: My friend came in from CA & he’s the only person I know that likes sushi. I suggested Cafe Mochi since it was close to me. We loved it! Friday night around 5 we got a table right away; we had a table between us & another couple which made him more comfortable since he has an autoimmune condition. We ordered rainbow, spider & spicy tuna rolls. They were delicious. I highly recommend this little place & eat local.

Comment: TLDR: Cafe Mochi was an awful experience but they have good food, Wait for Blue Ocean to open dine in again!!I used a Facebook group to find a good Sushi recommendation for a birthday dinner. Lots of people recommended Blue Ocean and Cafe Mochi. Our go to is Blue Ocean, authentic sushi, great atmosphere, and wonderful service. However they are not taking dine in, so we went to Cafe Mochi.Here was my experience.There was plenty of parking adjacent to the restaurant which was nice..The atmosphere was ehhh. The restaurant didnt seem clean upon entrance, kind of rundown looking, they did have outdoor seating which was nice, but inside was kind of blah.The service was awful, we had reservations for a party of 7, and they seated us fairly promptly, however we did have to go up a half flight of stairs which isnt an issue for most people but Im not sure they could have accommodated us if we had wheelchair bound member with us. The waitress seemed just bothered by our presence, Id tell you her name but she never gave it, at one point when I asked for extra napkins she legitimately roller her eyes. She did seem to be the only waitress for our section but that isnt an excuse for poor manners. I also had to ask for drink refills and another round of alcoholic beverages. We waited so long for service that all of our drinks needed refilled at the same time.Our appetizers came out at different times (weird) One of the meals (chicken fried rice) was not delivered. However the table next to us received a sole plate of fried rice at the same time as we got our other 2 dinners so Im sure that was meant for us. When we finally asked where the fried rice was (because our waitress was not communicating anything) they said the kitchen was backed up. After the 3rd time asking for it we just simply asked that they take it off our bill because everyone was done eating at the table.When I realized they messed up one of the sushi rolls the food runner walked away and said she would tell the kitchen, so we started eating the other sushi on the platter. Then she came back with a to go carton and said she needed to take the messed up sushi roll back with her. Then she looked at the platter trying to figure out the best way to do it and decided that just taking the entire platter (that we were eating off of) with her was the best option. She did return the platter sans roll, however that was just weird.We ordered 2 cocktails, pink geisha, which were delicious, but when we asked for another round of drinks she took up not only the kids fountain drinks but also our cups. She went to the back and brought us out the same cups with a refill of the cocktail. She refilled our cocktail drinks! In what universe does that happen?Drinks were served in a plastic cups, the kids softdrinks, but also our cocktails. Not what I expect when Im eating at a sit down restaurant. Not only that when we asked for silverware they provided 3 plastic forks an no knives so my grandmother and son were left trying to eat an entire chicken breast with just a fork. Interesting.The sushi however was delicious. We ordered a fried California roll, a Philly roll, a butterfly roll, a bagel roll, a rainbow roll, a Hawaiian roll, a lemon drop roll, and fried shrimp roll. They were well prepared and displayed, and they provided plenty of ginger and Wasabi. We were pleased with that aspect of the dinner.Needless to say I cannot wait for Blue Ocean to open dine in again for customers

My dasher told me that they were just sitting around taking there time. Which is fine but a hour and a half. Like come on.

Comment: Terrible wait times! Got to cafe mochi at 645 and waited 45 mins for a table of 4 . Once seated we waited 2 hours for sushi rolls and the rest of our dinner to be brought out. We didnt even eat at the restaurant . We were so tired and frustrated with the service we just boxed up our food and left. It was 10 pm. On another note … totally out of all specialty beers. The experience couldn’t have been worse!

Comment: I never leave reviews but this was bad. When we arrived the host told us sushi was coming out at a normal pace. We weren’t greeted by the server for about 20 minutes and then we ordered our appetizers and sushi. Appetizers came out within 20 minutes but the sushi took about 2 hours and within the first hour our server did not come check on us once! An hour and a half in we had to go find the server to ask him what was going on. We had to get it to go because I had work but waiting 2 hours for your food is way to long and absolutely NO discount what so ever. No apologies. Probably won’t be coming back. Sushi wasn’t even worth it.

Comment: I don’t normally leave reviews but feel like I should about our visit. We were out of town guests visiting the zoo and decided to get dinner here on a recommendation. We sat in the patio area with our four young children. Our server was very nice and accommodating about our son’s food allergies but the kitchen ran EXTREMELY slow. We waited over a hour for our food. We also ordered sushi at the same time and waited even longer after our entree food came out. Thank goodness our kids behaved fairly well waiting but the quality of food was not worth the wait. Disappointing.

Comment: I dont even want to give this place one star. We arrived for a birthday dinner (4 of us). We were seated outside and waiting for the other two members of our party. We informed the waiter that two more were on their way to which he replied, good, because Im really behind. We went ahead and placed an appetizer order while he was there. The rest of the party arrived and one of the appetizers came out and the other didnt come out for several minutes after that, we were surprised to find that our calamari tempura was vegetables. There was not a single piece of seafood in the appetizer. We informed one of the ladies that was delivering food about the calamari and all she had to say was, ok, with an attitude. Our waiter did not come over to check on us until we flagged him down close to an hour into this visit to ask him how much longer the food would be and he said it should be out anytime now. It began to sprinkle and we asked the same lady with the attitude earlier if we could move inside, and once again with the attitude, told us that it was probably full but that she would go look and never returned. Our waiter came back out and began moving other tables inside and didnt even look in our direction. I flagged him down and asked him to box our food to go and to go ahead and bring the check. His reply? Youre going to have to wait because I have to go get this tables order. So we did wait... and waited... and waited... (all the while it was still raining on us). He finally brought the check out and said that they were boxing the food up now. We waited... waited another 15 minutes before going inside. I found the host and told him that we were only paying for the things that we did get and nothing else. I told him not to bother with the rest of the order. When the host said that they HADNT EVEN STARTED MAKING OUR FOOD, our waiter and the lady with the attitude would not look at us, acknowledge us, or even walk by us. The service was absolute trash and what food we did get wasnt great either. Its hard to mess up edamame but the calamari vegetable appetizer was extremely disappointing. Do not waste your time here at all. --- We were there for a total of 1.5 hours just trying to get 6 sushi rolls. I want to make it known that after we left we drove to three different locations, unfortunately they were closed on Sundays, but settled on Herbies in Clayton and had our food and check in less than an hour. AGAIN, we went to THREE DIFFERENT PLACES BEFORE FINDING A SPOT, ORDERED FOOD, AND GOT OUR CHECK in less time than we spent sitting and waiting... and waiting.... and waiting... and waiting at Cafe Mochi. If you like wasting your time, being hungry and angry, then please go here.

Comment: We waited for over an hour to get our party called. The host never told us how long it would be. There were FIVE empty tables on the patio while we waited and no one was seated at any of them for at least 30 minutes. He eventually came and said we were next and hed be back in two minutes. About 20 minutes later he came back to seat us. About 5 minutes after seating he brought three waters for our table of six. 5 minutes later he brought our remaining waters and left without saying anything. We sat at our table for another 30 minutes and were never asked what we wanted to drink so we left and went to a different restaurant. This was very disappointing as it was supposed to be my birthday dinner.

Comment: I had their barbeque pork vermicelli and California roll. The Vietnamese BBQ pork was amazing, comparing it with a few restaurants in countries outside of Vietnam. The egg roll was fried in fresh oil. Fish sauce and the roll were good as well. Great service. Ambience and decor were relaxing and comfortable. Outdoor seating!! The only challenge is lack of parking. Ill definitely go back and try other dishes.

The food was good. The worst thing is my food was served in styrofoam for dine-in!!! 🤣🤣 didn’t even get soy sauce or napkins! The list goes on. Cafe Mochi is just not the Cafe Mochi it used to be. I’ve used them for work functions etc and honestly wouldn’t even bring my family friends or coworkers here. RIP CAFE MOCHI!

Comment: We loved this place, so much so we drive about 45 minutes to eat there on occasion. Today for my wifes birthday, it was the obvious choice. Maybe its the high expectations normally shown by the owner but Today was a huge disappointment. We sat outside in an area of maybe 8 tables. We waited about 15 minutes before finally getting the servers attention. He said he would be right back to get our drinks and about 5 minutes later showed up with waters. Another server stopped by at the same time and said is just water okay? We asked for soft drinks and they were brought. We place orders for appetizers, sushi and PHO. The appetizers arrived about 15 min later, we asked for soy sauce and never received any. Our PHo arrived and we asked for the sides that go in it. He looked at us like we were crazy and kept asking for more details. The second server said she understood and would be right back. Again no soy. My wife finally went in and got soy sauce as we prefer the taste with it. After the food was taken away, we were told the sushi would be out soon. It arrived but was not presented as it normally is and didnt have the same fresh flavors. It might have been the frustration from the rest of the meal but we ate a couple bites and took the rest home. I guess the good thing is taking it home was easy as all 3 roles were served in a to go container. Im sure we will be back but might be time to find another place.

Comment: Summary: Good sushi 🍣, consistent food quality and service 👍🏼, and AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE 👫✨ We’ve going here since 2014 and absolutely LOVE this place!The Food:- Highly recommend the Volcano 🌋 Roll. It’s a shrimp tempura roll wrapped with thin slices of avocado that has this AMAZINGLY TASTY topping! The topping is warm, slightly creamy, and deliciously savory. It consists of what I think is spicy mayo (creamy), tobiko (fish roe, which makes it salty and savory), super thinly shredded strips of radish (adds most amazing crisp, texture without any weird veg taste), and baby scallops (cooked perfectly, so they’re tender and almost melt in your mouth!)- My fiancé usually orders that, the spicy tuna and occasionally the Dragon 🐉 Roll. I always get tamago (sweet egg sushi) and miso soup!- The quality of the sushi has almost always been the same every time we’ve orderedThe Customer Service ✨:- All of the servers have been great; they’re fast, friendly, and professional- We usually get the pretty, petite Asian lady and she knows us by now. We usually order the same thing so she remembers what we like, down to small details like the fact that I don’t like green onions in my soup (which I really appreciate)- We’ve had other servers too; not sure if they work there anymore but we also used to get the Caucasian lady with short hair and tattoos or the young-ish Asian guy and they were always great. We recently had a new server, a younger Caucasian girl (with blondish, red hair maybe, can’t remember for sure) and she was also pretty awesome!- The chefs don’t interact with customers all too much but they’ve always been nice enough to me: occasionally they say “Thank you [for coming],” or say “Goodbye,” as I leave, which is nice- All the employees have always been consistently pleasant; like we’ve never had a bad experience/interaction with any of them, ever!- Sometimes the service is slow during lunch (noon-ish) and dinner (5-8ish) hours but that’s to be expected since they’re one of the few (more popular) sushi spots in the city. So try to be patient and understanding, I’m sure they’re all doing their best to get your order out to you!- They always try to update us on the status our order when they noticed we’ve been waiting awhile. And then when they eventually bring our order out, they always make sure to apologize for the long wait time (even though we tell them that it’s ok/fine every single time, and we’ve been coming here for years!)✨ I really do love the customer service because it’s so RARE to have a place in the city with both GOOD and CONSISTENTLY good customer service. They’ve always been like that since we first started going there too

Comment: A cute sushi bar on South Grand that serves sushi other related dishes and cocktails. You can call to order then pick up, we decided to eat in for a change of scenery. They have socially distanced outdoor seating and the waiters are quite attentive. We werent there for long before someone brought us menus and took our orders.The unexpected part is that our order took 45mins to an hour so we decided to get the order to go. We didnt get to see how beautifully they plate their dishes (so Ive heard).The sushi was everything I thought it would be with smelt roe drizzled over it, very pretty to look at and great flavour. Id recommend the Spicy Octopus roll, Maui roll and the Futo Maki

Comment: So I would just like to start off with my experiences in person with Café Mochi. Last week I went to the physical store to place an order of Pho and they had told us it would be a 30 minute wait. We waited and when we returned they had not even placed the order yet. So today I decided to give them another chance by ordering them online. I have to say the food was just average. I personally love going to new Asian restaurants and this entrée was just average. I wish the lettuce had been chopped more fine and the cucumbers as well having these larger chunks takes away from the flavor. I have to say the meat was delicious. The noodles were sadly the biggest disappointment, The vermicelli was overcooked and it was a little too thick for the classic Bun dish.Usually Bun is very refreshing and light when you’re eating it. This dish was extremely heavy. I did order a side of crispy rolls they sadly were a little overly greasy which took away from the flavor.Overall it was fine but I would say I was not fully satisfied with the flavors overall.Delivery was extremely fast and I was very happy with how on time they were.

Comment: Ive gone twice. The first time, my service was adequate. It was a little slow; I had to ask for things, but I had a nice seat on the patio, and I wasnt in a hurry to eat (if I were, that would have been a bad experience). There is no variety of soy sauce--only regular. The second time I went with my partner, and we sat inside. A roach almost crawled directly onto their shoulder as we sat in the booth. We had already eaten the sushi, which was decent compared to many places in St. Louis. We wont go back for sanitary reasons as well as continued slow service (in an almost empty restaurant).

Comment: The food was great, but we didnt eat our salads after I saw the guy scoop it out of the thing with his bare hands. Everyone else making sushi and other food was wearing gloves. He was a server/cashier and wasnt. I also was told it would be 15 minutes. I got there 20 minutes later. And had to wait 15 minutes more. I wasnt too concerned with that, but it seems to be an issue in other reviews also. The food was almost good enough to make up for it, so I hope they can fix these issues.

Comment: Terrible service and longest wait in all of the restaurants I have gone to. I brought my kids to eat and had to wait over an hour and not all the food came out. Had to complain once to get their kids plate of food. Our food did not even come out over an hour after. By then we decided to just cancel our order and go home since it was time for the kids to go to bed. When we requested to cancel our order, the owner did not even apologize for the long wait time and gave us attitude. The long wait is a recurring issue here.

Comment: Fav spot to get sushi in the city. Their happy hour is so clutch too. The butterfly roll will change your life and so will the crab ragoon. Their non-sushi options are so good too. The service is usually good and if eating outside is your jam, the patio out front is the perfect spot for people watching while you eat. Love this place. Will continue to keep coming back.

Comment: I have always had really good sushi here but the service is usually slow and the servers are unfriendly. If you can ignore that this is a great place to eat. On Tuesdays between certain hours the sushi is half price. That’s a pretty good deal seeing though, the sushi is overpriced. Edamame is good here though.

Comment: Probably the place in St Louis for eating sushi. I have been eating here for more than 8 years. And there were years where I couldn’t go a week without going. They make excellent quality sushi at an affordable price. They have a happy hour from 430-6 pm that provides half off sushi rolls. I have taken family and friends to this restaurant countless times; every person were delighted with what they ordered. I have turned some of my best friends and family from hating sushi and not really giving it a chance to loving it just by trying their shrimp tempura. The appetizers here are great (especially the fried vegetable tempura). The entrees are also great; I have tried their rice options. They also have a imported beer and sake if you’re up for drinks. The staff here is phenomenal; they are all professional and very well mannered. I have talked with the family that owns this restaurant with how many times I’ve come to this establishment, and they are very kind people. The seating is bountiful; you can sit outside, bottom floor or upstairs. Easy bathroom on all floors. Food is very consistent. I have had a majority of the sushi in the St. Louis area. The price and quality of the sushi here beats competitors such as Sushi AI, Kampai sushi, Midtown, Koi, and Drunken Fish. Trust and give it a shot. This review has long been overdue.

The sushi chef(s) will make the hamachi dish I love even though its not on the menu, which (to me) is a sign of a great sushi restaurant. Prices are so reasonable compared to other sushi spots in town. Will go back again and again.

Comment: Understaffed, inattentive and inexperienced waitstaff and stressed chefs to top it all off. Weve been there twice - once for lunch and once for dinner. During our lunch visit the tempura-fried vegetables werent cooked properly, there was still unfried batter and the onion was undercooked. During dinner our pork katsu was severely overcooked and completely dry. The bathroom is dirty and has several flies on the walls, and there are open bags of rice right in front of the bathroom door, with trash being transported out the back door in the same hallway. Flickering lights in the booths. The place seems undersized and the staff, especially the chefs, are overworked. Waitstaff seemed more interested in baiting for tips than actually serving us. Our waitress completely ignored our table for long periods of time. We will not be returning, and will discourage others from going.

Comment: This place used to be pretty good but the past year or so it has drastically gone down hill. The last 4 times I’ve been there they have been understaffed and have had to wait over an hour and a half to get our rolls. Last time our food never came at all. Could be a management problem or the servers keep quitting on them. I like the place enough to go back but they could use a little reboot on staff organization and customer service

They let use keep the food.( things happen I understand) but then I guess they only saw one side of the paper to order sushi because we did not get the specialty rolls we were hoping for. There food is amazing and we will be going back here again. The prices are decent compared to other prices around town.

Comment: Best sushi Ive had in STL! The rolls are larger than expected (in length and in circumference), and were brimming with mouthwatering flavor. In the pictures are the Hurricane on the far right, the Maui is the furthest from the camera, the Caterpillar is in the center, and the closest roll I cant remember the name of (I think the Kobi) it has seared steak on the top. We also got some pot stickers that were wonderful. 10/10 will be our new regular sushi place.

Comment: This place has really come a long way since when it opened. There are a lot of things to co side reviewing but the three best things about this restaurant are the happy hour sushi rolls of which there are probably 25 to choose from that you can get for half off, and then throw in the nigiri and its a huge win. The outdoor patio is great and doesnt receive too much sun later in the day. And thirdly, the fried cheesecake. Beautiful to look at and terribly delicious.

Comment: My first time eating Vietnamese cuisine. I was impressed. I got a dish called Ca Ri Ga with steamed rice. Its enough to share. My only complaint is I had to send back because it had mushrooms and on the menu there was no mention of them and Im allergic. They prepared me a new bowl without fuss. Everything seemed to be cooked to order. My friend had sushi and was pleased. They have an upstairs to accommodate larger groups. Parking in this area is not so great. You have paid meters on the street and even on the shared parking lot thats near the location.

Comment: The worst experience in service. This was my first time here and will be my last time here.There was a mix up in communication from the get go. The manager failed to deliver decent customer service by being focused clearly on the customer.I paid for sushi I did not want plus a dinner. Told the manager I made a mistake and did not want the sushi, only the dinner. She brings out the sushi, so I think she thought I said I wanted sushi and not the dinner, fine, Im hungry. I ate it. She seemed distracted by something and did not focus on me when I placed the order to ensure correctness. My intuition told me something was off. I go in and ask for the check and shes unable to communicate rationally. She chose not to listen to any words I spoke. I paid the bill and left, since I was getting upset from not getting heard.Ill never go back to a place where a manager cannot interact and communicate rationally with a customer.

Comment: Ive been coming here often since they opened. Since they expanded to the upper level and became more popular, the service has slowly declined. The usual reply is were very busy tonight no matter how busy they actually are. On a Wednesday night with open tables, I had to wait 15 minutes to get drinks (water and tea).Heres a hint: if you expand your service and get busier, hire more staff?The redeeming factor is they have great sushi.

Comment: Café Mochi is a fantastic sushi restaurant that has always worked to satisfy the mobs of people that visit almost every day. The sushi is fantastic, and the service has always been good. The owner has been responsive to our suggestions and ideas and has worked hard to expand to meet the needs of the clientelle, which has always been extremely busy.Ive been a somewhat regular customer since they opened and have witnessed the transformation from a tiny little place (that was packed) to a much larger restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. The character, service, and quality of sushi has always been an asset to the South Grand area.

Comment: This is my favorite place to get sushi in St Louis. The half-price happy hour specials are a great deal. My 4 year old daughter and I eat here 3-4 times a month on her request as it is her favorite place to eat as well. Depending on when you arrive you might wait a while for your food, but sometimes it can arrive very quickly.

Comment: I have enjoyed Cafe Mochi since I moved to the city 3 years ago. Im going to enjoy it again tonight. This place is a quality, local establishment on South Grand and should definitely be on your list of places to frequent.The service is exactly what I would expect at a restaurant that is always packed (because its awesome) and that does NOT serve fast food. When Im in a hurry I go to the Taco Bell, located conveniently up the street. When I want to take my time and enjoy sushi I go to CM. Everything is always fresh. The specialty rolls are killer (my favorites are the Butterfly and Spider). Everything else is just as amazing- better if you do catch it on happy hour, but a solid life choice either way. I havent tried very many of the Vietnamese offerings but, they have my confidence as well. Dont be put off by assholes with Google accounts dealing out their weird vigilante version of justice. If youre in the Tower Grove area check this place out.

Comment: If I could give 0 stars I would. I challenge anyone dining here to ask for the owner and assess for yourself how horrible his attitude is. For this reason I will never go back. I do not have any comment on the quality of the food since our experience here was completely ruined before we were served our order. We were told by the owner to leave when we politely refused to be reseated about 30 minutes into the experience. Not only that but were harassed and accused of lying because our waitress allowed us to combine tables for the rest of our expected party. I will never spend my money with a business that does not value its customers. Regardless of the food, the owners attitude left a bad taste in my mouth. We dined instead at Sushi Ai in Clayton. Their service was wonderful.
