A word from 1 or 8
The cuisine at 1 OR 8 is a reflection of the chefs' and owner's eclectic food experience growing up in Japan, where traditional dishes coexist with those originating from around the world often transformed with a Japanese touch. 1 OR 8 takes this approach, sometimes playfully pushing the envelope and experimenting with ingredients or techniques but always with a Japanese sensibility at heart. The open kitchen and sushi bar lets you see the preparation of the dishes, cooked or raw. Seasonal fish flown in from Japan are available daily. 1 OR 8 is a casual dining establishment proud of providing exceptional quality and execution in its adventurous offerings.

Online reservation is for tables only. For reservation of seats at the sushi counter, please call the restaurant.

Diner Reviews
  • "What a great spot. Had the bento box special and got a fantastic meal...which was quite filling. Each dish in the box was terrific (except for maybe the dried tofu). Presentation was outstanding and service was very attentive without being overbearing. Highly recommend this restaurant and wouldn't hesitate to go back."

  • "We had the omakase sashimi. The fish was very good quality and delicious. The two side orders we ordered were good but kind of expensive and boring. This place is good to impress a materialistic date. I need more exciitment to return."

  • "Big fan of this restaurant. Never lets me down. Top quality food and service, not to mention an amazing space."

  • "Tucked into a small side street off Wythe, 1 Or 8 is truly a treasure. Minimalist in design (white tables and modern organic decor) and fastidiously focused on technique and quality ingredients, this Williamsburg enclave is perfect for escaping the hype of Manhattan foodie finds. The cocktail, wine, and sake lists are well pruned (try the sochu and sesame shake), and the food mixes simple high-quality ingredients with richly flavored broths and sauces. The tofu appetizer features a rich mushroomy broth, and the simple scallop appetizer with rice noodles and tomatoes is perfectly executed. Definitely branch outside of the sushi and sashimi and try kitchen entrees or even ask for a tasting menu."

  • "from ambiance to service to the amazing food. care goes into quality taste and presentation it's awesome without being pretentious if you haven't been, book it if you haven't been back in awhile, go it's the wink that you know the best place to go in town. also, eating at the bar is equally enjoyable!"

  • "I'd been meaning to visit for a while, but my experience was disappointing. My boyfriend and I came at 9.30 on a Saturday night, and didnt leave until 12.30. Everything took wayyyy too long. Our server disappeared for extended periods of time, taking care of an 8-top that seemed to take all her attention. The food was inconsistent: some dishes huge, some tiny. The raw fish dishes were good, but anything we had that was 'composed' felt clumsy. It may have been an off night across the board, but I won't be rushing to come back and give them another chance, there are much better options in Williamsburg."

  • "One of the best sushi restaurants in New York. Simplicity at it's best. With only the freshest fish, each piece is an experience you will definitely appreciate. Order the omakasi, and trust that the chef will make you very happy :)"

  • "Sushi was pretty good, I wouldn't say exceptional. The list of rolls was limited with a majority of them having fried fish, crab, or shrimp (personally not my kind of seafood when eating sushi)"

  • "The food was delicious but service was rife with errors that were not corrected or comped, even when pointed out. Disappointing given the quality and the price."
