Tsunami Shaw Center - Baton Rouge Ratings and Reviews
The view of the Mississippi River and do ...
The view of the Mississippi River and downtown Baton Rouge is fantastic. Our visit was on a Tuesday night and the air conditioner was broken and it was HOT. Server said they could not get anyone to come out and fix it, which translates to "we did not want to pay overtime." It was miserably hot and the service was very bad. Drinks took 20 minutes to come out, ordered a second glass of wine, but never saw anyone to have an additional drink. We were told to order the susi after the entre as it was taking a long time to get the susi. We wanted the susi as an appetizer and not after the entre. The ice melted so fast in the water that we had to ask for additional glasses of ice during the meal. In summary, the view is unbeatable, the food was good once we got it, the service was horrible /slow, and no A/C in Baton Rouge is unbearable.

A little expensive, but worth it. Really nice waitress, really good food! The only thing is that the tables were a little too close together....Felt a little too close to the couple next to us, was a little hard to hear when it got a little later because of all the people but other than that it was great!

Food was great. We went for 5 PM so there were hardly any seated tables, but around the time our food was coming out, the hostess sat one of the only tables in the restaurant directly next to us. It was very quiet so it was awkward knowing they could hear our conversations. There was more than enough room to seat them a few tables down. Instead they were right on top of us and it was uncomfortable. But, there was nothing we could do about it.

Tsunami was amazing. They have stepped up their sushi game. My date and I had amazing sushi overlooking the Mississippi River during sunset. Great drinks and great food. I'm definitely coming back again....and again...and again...

Very good "sushi" and rolls (except could not ever order the "Tide Roll". Geaux Tigers! :) ) Great view. Friendly staff. Music was loud at first but was turned down and not a problem. Wholeheartedly recommended for any occasion.

Love the layout, waitress was exceptional , welcoming was excellent. Paid attention to conversation of being a special night and got surprise with a nice desert. Steaks were ordered , T-bone was very fatty , asked for mediums well and got medium rare. The manager states that's the way the steaks are ,hmmm. Polite to trim fat off steak to make eatable . This is a fine dinning restaurant , should not receive a fatty steak under any circumstances. I understand some fat, but not to the point where you cannot eat any further.
But we enjoyed the view ! Thanks

My wife and I were put next to a party of 12+ people and we were right next to the wait station and the door to the patio - so a lot of people passed and it really was annoying. If you want to get a table by the windows with a view of the river, YOU NEED TO CALL THEM!
That being said - THE SERVICE WAS OUTSTANDING. The food was very good, although I wasn't too impressed with the "cupcake" roll. It was drenched in a mayo based sauce and it really overpowered the roll itself. Once I scraped the sauce off, I was able to enjoy the roll. We had the "big easy" roll and it was tasty, but only came with 4 pieces.
The steak was terrible. It wasn't cooked ...
The steak was terrible. It wasn't cooked as ordered and you couldn't taste the steak at all under all of the seasoning that was piled on it. I never go to Tsunami for the food. The view is second to none in BR. The very professional management did comp us some excellent Sake for the mix up in our meals.
Great Food , Awesome View!
I have often eaten at the original Tsunami in Lafayette and found the food at the Baton Rouge location to be just as good but with a better view. Unfortunately the waitress dropped a glass of water on my mother and all over the table as soon as we sat down. We wanted to move to the empty table next to our wet one with the broken glass but was told we could not. We had to wait for the staff to re-set the table and clean up the broken glass on the floor. The manager was not very nice about it and didn't offer us anything for the inconvenience. I thought it could have been handled better so that is the reason for the lower rating on service. In Lafayette the service has always been good so maybe the management at the Baton Rouge location is not as on top of things as the Lafayette location where the owner is often in the restaurant.
Great place to eat
My wife and I went to celebrate her birthday and the sushi was excellent. We had been trying to go for a while but never did make reservations early enough and they always seemed to book up but I am glad I was able to get a reservation this time. The prices are in line with our other favorite sushi restaurant so it was very reasonable and the atmosphere and view were amazing. One thing to keep in mind is that the menu is almost all sushi, I did not see any other entrees so if you don't eat sushi this is probably not the place for you.
Stunning and Fun
My wife and I came out for a date during our 1 and only night in Baton Rouge and chose Tsunami or the views. We were delighted by our server who was attentive but not overly which allowed us time to just enjoy one another. We had a very nice dai ginjo sake to compliment our 4 specialty rolls and 6 pieces of nigori.
The views of the sunset which followed a HUGE rain storm just moments before the sun actually set was gorgeous from the restaurant.
The energy was great in the room.
Great birthday celebration
Celebrating a group birthday of 10 people. It was a great experience. Our waitress was Madison & she was phenomenal. Of course the food was fabulous, as always. Great lunch spot because it wasn't as crowded as dinner time. Sushi was fresh and yummy! Definitely will return.
Food is always great!
Me and my boyfriend come here for date nights. We recently went with some friends for my birthday, and it again was fantastic. One of my favorite places to go! Always a choice when I'm asked where do I want to go eat. Another plus, is it's not that expensive. Reasonably priced and great food!
Another fine evening up above the river ...
Another fine evening up above the river with one of our best friends. Nice cocktails beforehand on the terrace (what an amazing plus!!!). We've always loved the eggplant appetizer, the gyoza, the Michael Doumite, & the biggus. Once again, they didn't fail us. Go eat some sushi!
I had been here in the past, but not for a few years. They knew we were on a first date, and they made it very special for us. The food, table location, service, it was all on point. Even the bar area to wait in when my date was late, was a treat. We will be back often. Great rolls!
