    I made a reservation for 10:45pm because is one of the options at opentable. They pretty much rush me the entire time since we sat down until we left. By 11pm they turn everything off, started cleaning and just waited for us to leave. If the restaurant has to close by certain time please please do not put the latest time as one of the options for reservation is not fair. I came from Long Island about 40 min drive. It was a surprise for my girlfriend's birthday, it turned out I was the one surprise with the service.

    We made reservation for 3 ended up being 6 after we sat down. They quickly changed out table, brought our drinks and made us feel very comfortable. The service was very good. The waitress was very helpful and kept checking on us. Prices were good and the food was good. It was a nice dinner, I will go back.

    We stopped by Fusha West prior to seeing CSN at the Beacon this week. Due to uptown traffic (thank you Jimi Hendrix) we were late for our reservation. We told our waiter that we had a show in an hour and 15 and he had our drinks, appetizers, and food out to us in plenty of time for us to enjoy our food and head over to the show. He was great! The food was very good - had some of the spicy sushi rolls and a couple of good appies - grilled eggplant and grilled chicken satay. The only slight negative was the specialty drink was a little on the sweet side but that was sort of to be expected based on the description. I think it was a fruit "tini".... Over all a great experience and I'd go back.

  • Not to our taste
    chrispyVIP
    Dined on 6/20/2014
    Sometimes we don't appreciate dishes even though they may be well executed because of our taste preferences. We do enjoy spicy Asian food as long as it isn't sweet. But we must be in the minority these days because there was really nothing on the hot, spicy offerings that wasn't also described as on the sweet side. We did order the spicy basil dish and the "filet" both of which were sweeter than we would have liked. That said we will be back because the sushi did look very good and our dining neighbors were raving about it. Service was ok, just some long durations between their visits to our table to see how we were doing. Also, there didn't seem to be assigned servers which lead to confusion about the status of our meal.

    This is our favorite neighborhood restaurant! The food is wonderful. We've had many a meal here and the quality and flavoring are consistently excellent. We particularly love the seaweed salad, rock tempura shrimp and the coconut curry vegetables. Just yummy! The ambiance and service are also consistently high. Highly recommend.

    It was relatively quiet when I went at 8 on a Saturday. The food was creative and quite good. Not exceptional but a solid place to go if you're in the neighborhood. For the price it was a great place.

  • Bartender breaks glass in ice
    AviEatsOutVIP
    Dined on 4/3/2014
    I saw the bartender break a glass into the ice and do nothing. Since I have been a regular, I was very comfortable to say that the ice needed to be dumped for public safety. She did nothing until I pushed so hard and then she agreed to change out all of the ice. I know this is a time consuming process but one piece of glass swallowed can land someone in the hospital. It should not take a good customer pushing to get this done. Had the kitchen staff come out to help - it would have taken no time. I was happy they took care of it but it should have been automatically done.

  • Convenient for the Beacon Theatre
    BeaconRegularVIP
    Dined on 10/11/2013
    This is a convenient restaurant for the Beacon Theatre. Reasonably priced. The staff are friendly and attentative in the dining area but the bar person was more focused on chatting with another guest than serving customers. Needed to catch her attention, ask for drinks and them remind her 10 mins later. Could have understood if she was busy but there were only 3 couples at the bar and 2 tables seated when we got there. The food is ok but nothing special to write about. Basically, you get what you pay for, except not at the bar! That said, I would go back and give it another try.

    A nice place to sit outside on a balmy summer evening, enjoying cold sake and Asian tapas. Some of the "tapas" were very good (eggplant and black sea bass), but others were just good (tuna tartar and sashimi in cucumber). But then the people watching on Amsterdam Avenue makes up for most of it. Wonderful service.

    We have been to Fusha West many times, but the service during this experience was particularly disappointing. Even though the restaurant was not crowded, we felt extremely rushed. They came for our orders before our drinks were served, and in fact we received our appetizers so quickly we had barely gotten our drinks. They repeatedly came by to ask if we were done, swooping in to clear off one of our plates before the other was done. We were done within 40 minutes.
