Tsunami Shaw Center - Baton Rouge Ratings and Reviews

The ambiance was nice, especially on the patio overlooking the river, and at the sushi bar. We did not sit at either spot. We were given a table in the far corner. We were overlooked/forgotten by the staff on more than one occasion. Due to this, our dining experience totalled almost 2 hours. We were not in a rush, so this was not a huge issue. The food was very good, so that was a bonus.
This was our first time to Tsunami. The ...
This was our first time to Tsunami. The sushi is fantastic. The water is terrible. A little pricey, $3 for iced tea, total bill for two, $117. The service was adequate at best but the waitress was very busy. We just happened to be there on prom night so they were busy. The view is really nice at sunset. The music was somewhat techno which I didn't particularly care for, it didn't really go with the atmosphere. Still, overall, we enjoyed it very much.

Still a very popular spot, reservations recommended. There are so many other sushi options in Baton Rouge and I'm not so sure Tsunami is the "Best" anymore and their prices are a little high but still a good dinner option and a view you cannot beat in Baton Rouge.

Yet another great meal before a show at the Manship. We keep coming back because it is always so good.
Eggplant miso and dumplings for appetizers. 1of us had the salmon anf collard greens - very good. Other 3 of us split a Michael Doumit , a Big Green & and a Black & Gold roll. all, likewise very good.
Were that not enough, teh view if the sunset over the Big Muddy was worth the price of admission.

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 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.
