"This is a great place to eat at prior to an early evening show. Must have the salmon tar tar and must try all the flavored sake!!"

"Came in with a party of 9. Asked for group food options, and our server offered to bring out an assortment of food within our parameters. It started with yellowtail sashimi with fried jalepenos and the food didn't stop until the second order of Kobe sliders came out. All the food was amazing, and the variety kept us excited to see what would come out next."

"Really enjoyed this restaurant! The food was delicious, amazing sushi! We had lots of appetizers to share (they are small proportions). It ended up costing a small fortune! Lol. Lots of reviews say go for happy hour, but that must be a bar menu. We sat in the dinning area and there were no happy hour specials. Super tasty food, really nice staff, cool place to eat. If you don't mind an expensive bill, it's a great place. :)"

"My wife and I have been to many sushi joints in Vegas over the years, and this is our new favorite. The sushi was great, the location convenient, and the ambiance was perfect. Their Social Hour specials (5-8pm) were very welcome, with their Angry Tuna Roll topping the list of specials. Our favorite of the night was the Samurai Roll, though.
Price was reasonable for the Vegas strip, which is to say, more than you will pay back home. But still more reasonable than many Vegas sushi places.
Their claim that they are a haunt for A-Listers is legit, by the way. Steven Tyler was at the next table over."

"I ate here by myself on a Sunday night. Enjoyed the ambiance. The cocktail I ordered was delicious but don't remember what it was called. Wasn't blown away by the sushi but it was decent enough. Maybe a bit overpriced but it's in Crystals so to be expected. Would return if looking for a chill sushi spot."

"This is a real shame. The sushi was fine, even the 'uni', but not much more than that. Seems to serve only 'spicy tuna' though, so anyone wanted a straightforward 'toro temaki' for example can only be disappointed.But the miso soup was bad. Perhaps even instant? If a restaurant that purports to serve Japanese food cannot even serve up decent miso soup, it does make you wonder. The service was very good, charming in fact. But the food honestly lets the place down. Disappointing."

"I love the ambience here, but the food could be better.
- Cucumber salad: cucumbers with vinegar, sugar, lemon. Good but nothing special.
- Sake tartare: best part of the meal. Wassabi mayo, lemon sauce, fried shallots, taro chips. great flavor and decent sake
- Rock Shrimp fried: Fresh tasting shrimp, but batter has no flavor. Flavor comes from the 3 dipping sauces. Wouldn't get again.
Drinks were ok."

"Social House may very well be my new favorite restaurant in 'Vegas. The staff was very accommodating to our large party that was constantly changing in number until the moment that we sat down. The new restaurant was quite beautiful, and somehow the food got much better since they moved several years ago from the TI. Every dish was a pleaser and the sushi is every bit as good as Blue Ribbon, which is substantially pricier and not as fun. Social House was a welcome respite from the overcrowded and overpriced restaurants located inside most 'Vegas hotels."

"This is the 2nd time I've eaten here. The first time was great. This time was very poor. I love great food and service and both were lacking. I took two friends. the fish wasn't as fresh and the over cooked my $228 Austrailian Wagyu steak. Tried fixing it and still severely over cooked it."

"Limited lunch menu. Very disappointing. Service "Heather" was excellent.
Only recommend for dinner and if you are in the Crystal Shoppes. Otherwise better sushi option at Aria
