MemorableIt was our first time there since it change from Danube. My wife and I were there to celebrate our anniversary.
The wait staff was very professional and was very attentive to our ever need.
We were even offered items that were not even on the menu. I guess it was our lucky day.
Overall the food was delightful and creatively done.
Well worth a return visit if time and money permits.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Yummy and MemorableThe food is absolutely delicious here. I brought a potential client here for a business dinner. We tried their 8 course tasting menu which was very tasty, fresh and unique. The waitstaff was very attentive. I would definitely come here again. This is a great place for a business meeting as it is not too loud either. If you love sake, they've got a wonderful selection. And if you drive, parking around this neighborhood was easy.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicateIt is Japanese food like you never had before. Delicate subtlety is the best descriptor, dinner is like meditating on a peaceful mossy rock overlooking a placid pond with koi fish.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMthe food was delicious. wagyuthe food was delicious. wagyu beef melted in my mouth.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMEdible Art for RomanticsWe have found the (regular) brushstroke menu to be wonderful-- so good that we rarely deviate from it. But we opted for the Spring menu and it exceeded our already high expectations. Every course we delicious and a pleasure to all the senses. This is one of our favorite places for celebrating anniversaries, and we will return for our next anniversary!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was so beautiful.I and my son had amazing dinner at Brushstroke on my son's birthday.

Very nice service (w/ one aspect that seems a little odd). Overall a remarkable dining experience.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't go wrong. EverythingCan't go wrong. Everything is good. You pay the price, but then you don't have to worry about anything. This is what quality means. I recommend it.
On top of it, no horrendous TV anywhere, music super quiet, which makes people behave quieter and talk quieter too. Great.
I strongly recommend it.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMShi shi fu fuWent to Brushstroke for my girlfriends birthday. Had the 8 course tasting menu which was $85 per person. I figured I'd splurge and see how the other side lived. Got a 300ml bottle of Sake also. The food was very creative and the service was impeccable. The total bill came to $220. Overall it was a wonderful atmosphere, good food and great service. Not somewhere I would go often, but maybe once a year for special occasions.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional food, service-Exceptional food, service- a truly memorable dining experience. My only complaint would be the staggering price tag.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA special treatWe had the shorter tasting menu and every single mouthful was delicious. The presentation is gorgeous. You can taste every single delectAble ingredient.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExpensive but deliversBe ready to pay, menu upgrades can really add up. But the quality is there. Highly recommend it.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMone of a kindWe tried the $85 (smaller) tasting menu which was excellent and a good value. Sashimi, fish, meat and rice like no place else on earth. Creative and inventive doesn't begin to describe the flavors and textures. It isn't really food; its whatever comes after food in the evolution of the planet. Elegant room and service. Must try at least once if you are lucky enough to get a reservation.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing fusion of JapaneseAmazing fusion of Japanese and American cuisines, ambiance and service.

I found it to be overrated though, I ordered a dish in the end that came with rice. The rice tasted like plastic, no kidding! But their sushi was good.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMRick aI had high expectations for Brushstroke, and it exceeded them on every level. I love Bouley's restaurants and I love sushi & sake, so this was a no-brainer. Perfection in every detail. Amazing, innovative food. Great service. Cool & tranquil decor. Nice soft jazz in the background. It all works.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the Tasting Menu forWe had the Tasting Menu for $85. Delicious, creative and beautiful! Worth every penny.
