I was out with a friend on a Tuesday night, and the service was notably slow, and the bill at the end of the night was not right. The food was good in general. I think it's an okay place to go if you are looking for a regular meal out.

Dined on February 14, 2016

This was a last minute, late night dining option that my wife and I selected after a date. The staff was courteous and attentive, but the food was just okay. My wife enjoyed her sushi roll but the burger I had was kind of bland. The Asian salad that came with it pretty much tasted like chopped cabbage and not much else. The pork dumplings we had were okay and the dipping sauce was excellent. The ambiance was nice and I liked that they had two bars. It's a great place for a large group to dine and have drinks since it is a little noisy. Overall the ambiance was good but the food was a bit of a miss. However I would try it again.

UNBELIEVABLE! Quality and Flavors at their best!

Dined on January 26, 2016

The food choices, uniqueness of menu, creativity (but not over the top) of flavors, fresh foods flown in daily... I cannot say enough about this place! Best sushi and appetizers (the sautéed Brussel sprouts were out of control!) I've ever had in the States! My friend has flown all over the world; including Japan, and this was by far their best sushi experience ever! Both locations (Charlotte and Mooresville) were consistent in quality and flavors and are places that you cannot miss!

Great night out.

Dined on January 17, 2016

When we first arrived, we were seated a little too close to the musician. When we asked to be moved, there were no questions asked and we were promptly moved to a much better location. The salad and sushi we had were great, the drinks were very different and very good and the service was terrific. Thanks.

I like to eat. But I walked away spending about $80 for just myself. Two rolls, an edamame app and two cocktails. The next time I come back, it'll have to be on a date so that i don't have to pay! Sheesh!

We went to Pisces a bit by accident. The original plan was Ru San's, but I walked out when the line to even get to the hostess stand was out of control. Found Pisces on Open Table and I'll never look back. The sushi was fresh and delicious. The menu was just the right size, plenty of options but not overwhelming. We sat in the back in the booth room and I loved it. I couldn't recommend it more, that is unless you're at dinner with someone you'd rather not talk to.

Off Ratio

Dined on December 5, 2015

The price to ambiance ratio was a bit off. The food was good, but a little too pricey to be sharing a bench seat with other tables. I feel the atmosphere should be different for the price.

Pisces never disappoints

vip
Dined on December 5, 2015

We returned once again to our favorite sushi restaurant with a group of friends who had never been. We came in late on a Friday evening (about 9:45) and ordered several drinks, appetizers, sushi rolls and entree dishes. As always, everything was fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. Our waitress had not heard one of the members of our party order a side of fried rice and when Brian came over to check on us, we mentioned we were missing the dish. He immediately brought out a large chicken fried rice dish to satisfy the group member. Everyone was thrilled with our meal and we now have another set of "converts" who will be returning as well.

Our waitress was superb. Wish I would remember her name. Just entertaining, humorous, attentive, and very knowledgeable about the food and drinks. Suggested great cucumber pairings for my friend and was kind enough to chat with me for a bit before my company arrived. Food was fantastic. A little loud with music at times, but it's okay. Made me wish there was karaoke at times. Overall great restaurant and service. Will be back again.

Dined on November 8, 2015

Absolutely amazing atmosphere as well as food. They have all of your traditional sushi items but they also have their own spin offs which i highly recommend. We went on a Saturday night and were seated near the bar which is usually noisy and crowded. However, the perfect lighting as well as live music playing in the corner made the evening that much more enjoyable. Pieces gets a 5 start from me *****

I have never seen this menu and was pleased that it included Saturdays!! :) Great variety of some basic rolls. Would have liked some of the more specialty rolls to be included as a nice alternative. But nonetheless, was happy w/ our lunch.

Food Allergies? No problem.

Dined on October 16, 2015

The staff were ready to take care of my wife and I who are both gluten and dairy free. I made a note on my reservation of our allergies and they were ready when we arrived. They were so helpful suggesting things and letting us know about all their alternatives. We had two different types of handmade sushi rolls along with a delicious salad. We will be eating here again! Thank you!

Went with a few colleagues, I made a reservation and the table was available right on time. Alice was our waitress and was outstanding. She made the experience at the restaurant. The Sake was superb, the food was good and the atmosphere was nice. We were given a booth in the back that was somewhat secluded like individual rooms... the service was outstanding... unlike Room 112-Sushi that we went too the night before..

Food quality was mediocre for the price.

Dined on August 28, 2015

Ambiance is awesome. They had a great artist providing live music. But no one in my party of six had a great experience. The dessert seemed to be microwaved sponge cake instead of brownie and we had to send our drinks back to the bar. I would only recommend this place as a place for happy hour or something like that.

Hmmm

Dined on August 19, 2015

I kind of have mixed feeling about this places because I think it could be better. We ordered the omakase, and everything was very fresh. The cocktail I ordered was really horrible, just incredibly sweet. I'm not even sure it had any alcohol. I felt like the service was about the quality you would get at Applebee's, friendly but unpolished. The two guys who I believe are the owners were friendly and knowledgeable. If they made a few changes I think the restaurant could go from okish to good. I also think they should dim the lights for dinner. Kind of fast food restaurant bright in there.

The food is very good, the service left a lot to be desired. The waitress rushed us through our meal despite the fact that the restaurant was nearly empty on a Monday night. The manager stopped by the table multiple times to ensure we were happy, which was appreciated.

Dined on July 26, 2015

My husband and I decided to come to Pisces last minute and were surprised that we were able to make a reservation without trouble on Saturday night. It was restaurant week and the menu looked incredible and to my delight, every dish on the restaurant week menu was also on the main dining menu. I think when a restaurant tries to create "features" for restaurant week, instead of highlighting great dishes from their menu, it's a great disservice to the restaurant and quite frankly comes across as cheap! How else would you know if it is worth coming back to a restaurant if you can't even sample the food on their menu! Regardless, that was NOT the case at Pisces!! First off, the service was incredible. A girl named, Crystal, I believe was our waitress. We were seated in a place where the AC was blasting and she was really sweet and turned the temperature up slightly so I wouldn't freeze to death! She was very attentive and easy to speak with throughout dinner. I can't say enough good things about the sushi!!! We ordered the tuna tataki and the A2 appetizers and sushi rolls (the Screaming "O", panthers, and the big salmon roll). The Screaming "O" was hands down the best roll and the A2 (sashimi tuna) was the best appetizer. But really, pretty much ALL OF the food and wine was great. The fish was fresh and had the right fish to rice ratio with the rolls. There is nothing more disappointing than a place that skimps on the sushi and makes the rolls laden with rice. Needless to say, we will definitely coming back to have sushi and drinks at this wonderful place!!
