Diner Reviews
  • "Spicy garlic shrimp and sea bass were delcious. Filet mignon app was overcooked. We asked for med & it came out well. The soy dipping sauce w king crab dumplings needs wasabi. Otherwise it was good "

  • "Had a $15 lobster roll for lunch which was not impressive at all; it was dry and bland. Two of the 8 pieces were pretty much just filled with lettuce. My friends had the Roll Combo, which had a tuna roll, california roll and salmon avocado roll and they enjoyed it. Those looked way more appetizing. "

  • "Haru has good, but not outstanding, food. Location is nice. I think it is a bit overpriced."

  • "Haru is great, Sushi is fresh and carefully crafted. I go here all the time and it never disappoints"

  • "fantastic seafood spicy soup, always great....often have to order what you want and explain it because not everything possible is on the menu. example, i wanted a crunchy spicy tuna roll but it's only on menu for some stupid reason as spicy crunchy SALMON roll....glad i asked. the regular spicy tuna roll is awful mushy texture. everything is fresh. always. quality isn't an issue so if they could just work out the consistently irritating misses, then the ways they are a hit would bring me back more often. pretty waterfall cascading flat on the entry glasspane is soothing. it's LOUD, though, so don't bring business clients here if you want to actually talk, god forbid. the hostess staff is everchanging, too, but usually nice."

  • "This restaurant has had no hot entrees for almost a month. We were told on several occasions that this is because of a gas problem, but with no indication when it will be fixed. I have seen no Con Ed trucks in the vicinity. Seems very odd. This restaurant is off my recommended list until it straightens out its problems."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "...Haru delivered a great meal. They've been having problems with the gas lines, so could only serve cold and room temperature food. Not a big problem for a sushi restaurant, though, and my latest meal was as divine as my many previous meals at Haru."

  • "As part of Haru's "Access" membership, I received a voucher for $40 dinner for two including a bottle of wine, appetizer, two entrees and dessert. This was such a great deal! The food was delicious and our waitress was great. Unfortunately that night the gas was not working so we could not order anything that needed grilling, but there were still many great options. The King Crab dumplings were delicious, and the sushi entrees were pretty generous in size considering the great price deal. Will definitely be back!"

  • "When we arrived, we were told that there was a gas leak in the kitchen and there would be no hot food served. We were shocked that they would be open for business. The restaurant was not crowded, maybe about 10 people dining, yet it took 30 minutes for our first appetizer to arrive and it was a sobu salad. Then, we had to ask for our drinks which were so diluted we couldn't even taste the alcohol. We finally got our entrees another 20 minutes later. We had the slowest service of all times, average food quality, cheap quality cocktails but at Park Ave prices. And not to mention having been put at risk during the gas leak."

  • "my friend and I had a late dinner at Haru on Saturday night and as usual had an amazing time. There was an issue in their kitchen so they did not have all of their usual hot entrées available - - nevertheless the sushi was outstanding! The wait staff very attentive without being overbearing"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Great decor and Ambience! Hot food wasn't available due to a long-running kitchen/ oven issue :("
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Even though their kitchen was down the sushi was very good and the park ave roll was amazing!"
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Although they were having problems in the kitchen, the suchi was great. They told us there were no hat foods but we ate the suchi box and liked it. Ambience is good and the service attentive and friendly."

  • "We had a good table upstairs, not quite so loud. Lots of young people, quite crowded on a Fri night. Sushi was OK but not great."

  • "I chose Haru during restaurant week because they had a great looking lunch menu! When I got there, I was told there was a gas leak through the building so they couldn't use their grills or fryers. This obviously deleted about half the items on the menu, which was my first disappointment. I decided to order off of the regular menu and was pretty excited about the price i was getting for 3 rolls! Once my food came, I realized I was getting what I was paying for. The fish tasted like it had gone off. Not to mention, it was some of the ugliest sushi rolls I've ever seen. My Wasabi had rice in it. I've never had this before at a Sushi restaurant, so it made me think they just scraped the Wasabi off of someone else's plate and put it on to mine."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "So we went to Haru for restaurant week lunch.....I would not go back. The sushi was fair, at best. But what really upset me what the "tip guidance" at the bottom of the check. It is not unusual for restaurants to do this today, to show you what 15, 18 & 20% tips total, but, in this case, the numbers were wrong. In fact the 15% amount, was really 20% and so on. I found that to be simply unacceptable. So even if the food was wonderful, which it wasn't, I would not go back here again."

  • "Better sushi options out there for the price - food was pretty mediocre."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "It was sad that because of the gas problem in the kitchen there weren't any hot entrees available. I thought I would be disappointed with the food, but Haru Sushi pulled through. I loved the food and the overall experience."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "When I arrived at Haru on Tuesday, Feb. 25th 2014 at 1:00 I was informed by the restaurant that they were not having restaurant due to a gas problem. They were only serving sushi and no hot appetizers or entrees. My friend and I said thank you and we proceeded to SushiSamba where they were offering the restaurant week menu. The lunch menu was wonderful. We enjoyed the sushi entrée that we both had. I would highly recommend SushiSamba. I have eaten here before and I have always had a great experience dining there. Of course I did not get my 100 points since I did not dine at Haru. I hope to in the future."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "I selected Haru based on the menu. But when we arrived, we were informed that due to a gas main break several days prior, most of the menu was not available. Only 2 appetizers and 2 entrees (basically sushi/specialty rolls). Mochi/ice cream was substituted for the desserts. The food & service was good, & portions were large. But for a restaurant that spepializes in sushi, I was surprised at the large size of sushi & specualty roll pieces. They should have been bite size, but were so large you had to struggle to eat them. That being said, I had the specialty rolls, and they were delicious. Had I know about the limited menu in advance, I would not have selected Haru. But I would consider going back when they are fully operational."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "This was my first time eating at Haru and it was specifically to take advantage of the RW menu. When we arrived we were seated promptly. We were disappointed to find, however, that they did not have any "hot items" available, eliminating about half of the RW menu. Sushi was good quality fish but rolls were nothing special and the appetizers incuding the crab dumplings and sushi tacos were bland."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "overall the food was great and huge portions from appetizers down to the dessert. worth all of $38.00"
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Overall experience was really nice. Went a little earlier than the reserved time but got our seats in less than 5 minutes. Waitress was really nice and helpful. Food was amazing. Courses came in good timing; after we were done eating one, the next one came in like 2-5 minutes. Allowed us to rest a little bit and talk until the next course. Would definitely recommend to others."

  • "My friend and I dined at this restaurant before catching a show at the Union Square Theatre. It was right around the corner from the theatre. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. The atmosphere was very enjoyable. We got a table by the window which made it fun to people watch. The service was above and beyond. The Sweet Potato Tempura Rolls were amazing as well as the Filet Mignon Entree. I would definitely return and highly recommend. Everything is fresh and delicious! Just a fun and exciting place to dine in."

  • "The menu is great and different. However execution, taste, style is all mediocre. It does make you feel like you ate sushi from Costco or the local bodega."

  • "I had lunch there on a slow afternoon. The restaurant was extremely quiet and staff were idle. I thought the chatting was a bit loud; it happens a lot that employees don't real use people are sitting in the restaurant. My salmon teriyaki was good but not great."

  • "I met a friend here for a "catching up" dinner after work. I had made our reservation for 7pm, but the hostess was able to seat us right away when we arrived about a half hour early. We each had a Lilikoi Sangria, which was beyond delicious. We both commented on how it made us feel like we were on a tropical vacation! We also had edamame and an entree each. The service was friendly, if a little over-attentive. Our edamame shells were emptied and our water refilled what seemed like every 3 minutes! The food was yummy and the ambiance perfect for catching up with a friend. Since I subscribe to Haru's emails, I received a $20 off coupon for my birthday, which was an added perk .I will definitely be back!"

  • "Good neighborhood place for fresh sushi. Generally pretty busy. Owned by the Benihana group. I wouldn't travel far to get there; it's not extraordinary. But if it is convenient you will probably become a repeat patron like me."

  • "I love this Haru. The staff is always friendly and the food is very consistently excellent. The service is excellent. We dined with my toddler who tends to get a little messy and can't sit longer than 20 minutes over dinner. They set us in an area where we did not feel that we were bothering any others and our service was understanding of their little guest. Excellent. Thank you again."

  • "Food was delicious and fresh. We asked our server for some suggestions regarding quantity for our group of 4 and she was spot on. The restauarant is a little on the dark side so it's hard to read the menu. I needed to use my Iphone flashlight. All in all, I loved the dinner."
