Not impressed. Very basic sushi with very basic service. I was excited to go and left disappointed.

Don't expect Uchi type service or food. Rolls were disappointing but the nigiri was great. There wasn't very much in terms of options and hope they expand their menu a bit more. Our bartender was more knowledgeable than our server.

fantastic food, service is a bit slow, probably should've written down our order since he forgot our correct drinks, music is too loud to converse, drinks were pretty good.

Great appetizers and drinks. The rolls are okay. This is more of a happy hour place in my opinion. I'd rather go to ushi at that price point

What a hidden gem! I have walked by this place so many times and just noticed the symbols written on the front of the building, but did not know what is was. I had heard such great things about Neighborhood and after finally giving them a try, I now know why the reviews are so great!
Although you see the symbols on the front, you actually enter the restaurant from the parking lot which is directly located in the back. We immediately loved the cool, modern vibe and knew we were in for a good time as every table was taken.
For a group of 6, we ordered grilled edamame, miso soup, egg drop soup, shishito peppers, various nigiri, torched wagyu short rib roll, spicy tuna roll, tempura shrimp and fatty tuna rolls, the special of crab croquettes and the tempura shrimp hand roll topped off with a magnum of sake...everything was delicious and surprisingly reasonably priced!

We had an incredible time- the food was super fresh and very flavorful. If you’re looking for a different sushi experience with choices for dietary restrictions- this is your place. Tons of fish options alongside great vegetarian and vegan options as well. Flavorful bites galore and the staff is incredible. The entry is in the back which has a cool speakeasy feel. Don’t sleep on the eggplant nigiri, the birds nest salad, and definitely order the Barnegat Scallop... and drink a Juicebox!!! Can’t wait to go back!

The menu isn't overwhelming with a plethora of choices. This is the place to go if you want the vibe of a cool nightclub but the ability to sit and enjoy sushi. At the time of my visit I was not a fan of the vibe b/c it was too loud and energetic for me but I could see myself enjoying it if I was in the mood for it. Honestly, eating the sushi made it worth it and helped me focus more on it than the energy of the place.

The waiter kept rushing us which didn't make for a good first impression. We had an early reservation and the restaurant was not crowded, so not sure why we were herded in and out. The Sushi was so-so. The sake list was excellent though.

Great spot for a date night or special occasion. The food was delicious and not a bad price. We got the neighborhood salad (that ginger dressing though!), the spicy salmon roll and snow crab California roll, sweet corn nigiri, and the fried ice cream sundae. Each item was presented beautifully and blew us away with taste. Our waiter (I wish I remembered his name) was super friendly and was very attentive. We even commented at one point how we thought he might have been the only waiter working but you felt like you were his only customer. I think we may have found our new go to sushi spot. We can’t wait to go back!

Horrible service. The waiter confirmed our order twice and then forgot one of the rolls we ordered. I checked with him to ask if it was still coming after we finished all the other food about 10 minutes prior. He said we didn’t order any more food and read out the rolls forgetting one of them. We decided not to push it as we had already been waiting for a while. We also never received two drinks we ordered. Then the bill came and it included the two drinks and the roll our waiter claimed we didn’t order. He was incredibly rude / dismissive about the error and printed out a correct bill without a single apology.

This was my second time dining at Neighborhood sushi. The food was as delicious if not more as my first time. Everything was fresh and flavorful. Service is top notch and I really like that they have specials during happy hour. The ambiance is very laid back and chill. I felt very safe during the duration of my meal and they take precaution in every way possible. I plan to go back and try more dishes on their colorful menu.

Great ambiance and sushi, salmon fat belly was underwhelming but everything else was amazing. Price for fat belly tuna also a bit absurd. Give it 4.5/5

This is simply the best sushi spot in Austin, hands down. Uchi has gotten boring, Soto is too flashy... Neighborhood is classy and consistent. Love this place and look forward to eating here every Sunday.

This place has the best sushi in ATX - think Uchi level but not insanely expensive. I was surprised how reasonable to prices were for how amazing the food was. Great creative cocktails, solid menu, and really attentive service. Also, it’s kind of a well kept secret that’s fun to pull out for a special occasion or entertaining out of town friends.

Such a a cute little place off Congress. The food was outstanding. We went in and it was Happy Hour! We had 3 rolls, a tempura platter, edamame, nigiri, sake and beer all for under $100. We will definitely be back.
