Diner Reviews
  • "Sells itself as Japanese cuisine restaurant but not even close to authentic...basically a tourist trap for theater goers from out of town."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "By NYC standards, the sushi is mediocre at best in quality and quite ordinary in variety/selection. Not a place we are in a hurry to return to."

  • "I've been there three times so far. Everytime is great. I was in a rush this time so we hoped that our orders were taken faster. However, the waitresses were pretty good with time and the food came at a great time. The salmon roll is delicious and their happy hour specials are great. Love it!"

  • "The food here was prepared beautifully and tasted just as good. The prices and drink specials made ordering a lot easy. The drinks were BOGO and really well made. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone"

  • "After discovering the restaurant on Yelp, I found a really great sushi place. The restaurant was pretty empty around 1:30 pm but the decor was beautiful. The service was great. There is happy hour basically all day. The sushi was delicious. I would definitely like to go again at night with a group of friends. There is also an outdoor patio in the back of the restaurant, which looked really cool."

  • "The food was really, really good. The staff seemed to be dealing with some issue that made them a little distracted but our server did his best to get us everything we needed. Definitely worth a visit."

  • "We arrived before 5-restaurant very quiet, ex for a few people at the bar. Given our choice of tables. It was too hot to sit outdoors, so we picked a low table. They had high stooled tables too. Our drink order was taken, and since it was happy hour, it was 2 4 1. Had delicious seaweed salad, oysters, sashumi and 2 different rolls. All was very good and fresh. Waiters were attentive but not overbearing. Would definately return when in the neighborhood"

  • "Able to sit with room Friday night in season on short notice. Reasonably-priced good food, and not all of us were fans of sushi. Mostly sushi and rolls. We'd go back."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "The service was not that great. The sashimi was so so but acceptable for the price."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "The raw bar was delicious. The oysters tasted fresh that we had 3 dozen before our sushi and meal. Ambiance was great."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The food was not as good as on our previous visits. Service was friendly but sparse and unreliable. The place becomes a bar/lounge at night."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "The Garden Seating was not offered to us. We would have had a nicer experience if we would have been outdoors on such a nice day. The sushi was fantastic and the wait staff was very attentive."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Man, that BBQ chicken roll was amazing. Never had a bad thing to say about the food here. Seated promptly, but the waiter was a bit young and slow - didn't seem to have much experience. And several loud parties on a Friday evening didn't help the cause. But my gf and I will certainly be going back, probably for the awesome $10 lunch special!"

  • "I was looking for a sushi restaurant in a location not too far from a subway stop on a rainy night. The walk was only a few blocks. The sushi was excellent. At 7 pm on a Friday, the place was active but not mobbed. I would definitely return to this restaurant!"
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "The food was good, the sushi conbinations are pretty interesting. Our server could not care les for providing a good service. Not nice at all and aproched the table a few times using quite an unopropriate verbage "

  • "Was looking for a sushi restaurant for dinner. Saw this one advertised. Should have known something was amiss when I walked in and the place was empty. Three staff members (one waitress, one bartender, and one manager) were chatting. Even after placing our order, they three continued to chat. It took an incredibly long time to get our food and drinks.....AND NO ONE ELSE WAS IN THE RESTAURANT. To make matters worse, we ordered some tuna and some salmon rolls. They came out together and couldn't be distinguished. One of our guests wouldn't eat salmon and was quite perturbed because the staff couldn't tell the items apart. Service was quite poor, and the food, just average. Would not go back. Not even for 1000 points. "

  • "My friend and I took our daughters to Bamboo 52 for an early dinner after a matinee. We were greeted right away, seated and had a wonderful server. I Enjoyed my Cosmo ...I'm picky! ......not a huge glass, but a nice average size...and we all shared a bunch of rolls. Everyone loved it...ESP enjoyed the "lovely roll". (My favorite) Miso soup was really good and our one cooked dish (udon noodles) was fabulous. We would definitely return, we all enjoyed our meal."

  • "There is nothing about Bamboo 52 that has me dying to go back. That being said the food was still good, the service was over the top kind which made the experience really enjoyable, and the drinks for happy hour are 2 for 1! So, if you're in the area and want Japanese - go for it!"
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "Sushi was delicious and fresh- and I'm a bit of a sushi snob. We were there celebrating a bachelorette party and I was a little disappointed in the dining experience, our server wasn't very friendly and the ambience was just ok. Overall, I would go back for the food."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I've been to Bamboo 52 quite a few times for happy hour. The sushi is always fresh and the boats are delectable! Service is usually pretty good - but can get a little slow at the peak of happy hour. The speciality drinks are B1G1 and the other moderately priced. I've never tasted a bad roll here."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "We arrived at the restaurant and was pleased with the menu. The only problem was the choice of seating. There were tables of average height with banks of seating against the wall and backless stools across from them OR high tables with high chairs with backs. We chose the high tables. We prefer regular chairs of normal height with backs. Maybe they will be available the next time when we eat outside under the umbrellas in the spring. The tables on the patio looked perfect, as was the lemon pie for dessert."

  • "Went on Saturday of St Patrick's weekend. The restaurant/bar was part of a weekend bar crawl which made it quite noisy with the party goes. Except for that was a good experience. The sushi was fresh, and there was a $1 special for blue point oysters, which suited this Piscean to a T."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Good sushi, long happy hour, 2 for 1 special from 11am-9pm, pretty busy for dinner time.......personally i am not a big fan of the space there, especially when it gets crowded, will try lunch next time, should be much more pleasant I guess."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "We tried some non-traditional sushi rolls, and all were interesting and delicious. The decor was beautiful, but most of the seating was Asian-sized. I felt like I was squatting in my booth because the seat was so low to the ground. Half of the seating was ottomans/stools, which I also don't care for. The drinks were good and reasonable, and the 2-for-1 happy hour made them even more reasonable. However, we had to flag down a waiter to take our order, to fill our water glasses, and bring us our check. No one ever came to our table, and the restaurant was half empty."

  • "What was his name? Mark? Matt? The overweight queen who rolled his eyes and decided to take our order on his iPhone ..."seriously" and still got it wrong... Sushi isn't that great. Service is ratchet. Atmosphere is blah. Avoid if possible [03/11/14]"
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Great sushi spot for the neighborhood... Great food, good service and a cool atmosphere. Nice patio area and a nice bar. Definitely recommend for a fun spot with good sushi!"

  • "I went there on a first date and really enjoyed the place. The food was really good. They were always alert to us if we had a question even on the drink menu."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Frankly went because it was a 1000 point restaurant. Sashimi appetizer was OK, not the freshest, but certainly OK. The Udon noodles were horribly bland. I kept adding soy sauce to give any flavor at all -- or salt."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "Went here with co-workers and ended up spending a few hours here as they have fantastic happy hour specials!"
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "Made a reaervations but Restaurant did not have a table for me and had to sit at the Sushi Bar. To make matters worse, a server did not come over to us for at 25 mins. We had to call the host over. To add insult to injury we were not checked in when we arrived and now we may not receive our 1000 points for dining! Not an overall good experience!"
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "The best part of Bamboo 52 is the servers and bartenders. So friendly and welcoming! The rolls are a bit pricey but really good. Great happy hour. It was a nice spot for a pre-show meal."

  • "Visited during a snow storm so not many folks dining out...that sai, the food and service at the bar were great..."
    Dined on 2/3/2014
  • "Great sushi and the steak was amazing!! Only thing I did not like were the oysters. They topped them with green onion and fish eggs. Normally I like both of those, but on the oyster they just got stuck in my throat and almost choked on them. Otherwise, the service was attentive but not over bearing. I had a raspberry mojito which was so good I ordered another one! When I asked the server to muddle jalapeno in it, she was more than happy to do it!"
    Dined on 2/3/2014
  • "I have been to this restaurant a few times now. I love the happy hours drinks are 2 for 1, and the sushi is great!!"
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "I did not order sushi since it was my first time to visit this restaurant. I usually wait until my second visit to eat raw fish as I do not want to get sick from bad fish or infection. I ordered a bento box. The way food is prepared and served is not traditional Japanese and I felt strange. If you are not born in Japan and you go for drinking and food this restaurant may be good."

  • "We went her for an engagement celebration for our dear friends and we got there ahead of reservation time. The host was amazing trying to get us seated and comfortable. We were seated for 6 that later turned into 7 and Bamboo 52 really came through and made the celebration fantastic!! Drinks weren't too tasty and there were hiccups in taking some of our orders but, overall it wouldn't be anything I can think of to not bring us back here. Thanks again to the most wonderful host and we all will be returning!"
