    Didn't like it. The service was good, the food not so much. Did not feel like the fish was of great quality, was not tasty, the king salmon pc that I had had lots of ligaments, I never had that with salmon. Drinks: nothing to write home about. Decor ? What decor? And it's kinda dreary.

    Took my gf out for a nice romantic dinner. Drinks were very well made. Only issue was the amount of salt on the edamame which was a little over powering. Other than that, the freshness of the fish was incredible and the rolls were delicious. Overall, I'd give my experience a 9.5/10 (took off 0.5 for the over-abundance of salt).

    I went to Haru for a solo lunch on a Saturday and dinner with friends during the week; both experiences were very pleasant. At lunch I sat at the bar and was attentively taken care of by the bartender who made great recommendations. The duck salad is an awesome deal - delicious pulled dark duck meat and a pile of greens with a light ginger dressing; also had the kamikaze roll. At dinner we shared edamame, steamed shiitake and shrimp shumai, and lobster gyoza. The lobster was dried out but the shumai was great. I ordered a specialty roll with tuna, strawberry and a kick of heat - creative and very good. A friend ordered a roll w a touch of jalapeno and hers was a highlight as well. Great find: affordable, quality sushi shop in a prime area.

    Went for lunch sushi. Lobster appetizer was overpriced and really bad. The sushi was not fresh -- felt like it had been sitting on the counter for way too long, and arrived room temperature. Couldn't finish it.

    Went there during Restaurant Week on 8/14/2014. My order of fish taco's, and sushi plate had large pieces of fresh fish which was excellent. My companion had tempura. The quantity of tempura will satisfy the hungry but the tempura batter was heavy and not crispy as found in typical tempura restaurants. Had a view of their order system and found that our food was ready, but not served in timely manner. Hence, the tempura was cold. Server was very busy and refills of our tea was not done periodically.

    Restaurant week was my first time at the restaurant. Everything was amazing. I made a reservation and was seated promptly. The soft lighting created great ambiance. The food was very tasty and you were never waiting long for the course which followed. The waitress was very friendly, she was able to make light conversation, smile and recommend the best dishes and cocktails from the menu. I will definitely go back again.

    This place has good quality of food, but our lunch took over an hour to finish. If you're on a tight schedule for lunch, I would not recommend this restaurant. It took us 10 minutes just to get someone to ask us for our drink order. It took us about 15-20 minutes between getting seated and getting our first course of food. The Asian chicken salad we ordered off of the restaurant week menu was very delicious and had a great medley of different tastes and textures, and a nice crunch to it. The fish tacos weren't bad either. I would consider going back here, but definitely wouldn't come if I were very hungry or pressed for time as expediency is not a forte of this place.

    We came here for restaurant week after reading some great reviews and it did not disappoint. The RW menu was aptly priced and well worth it. The sushi and sashimi were fresh and on point. The only thing was the prices felt a bit high for what we're used to, but at least the portions were big enough. Service was great, we were checked on continuously and water filled through the night (big pet peeve of mine). Highlight of the night? Cheesecake tempura - who knew that fried cheesecake would taste so good?

    The sushi was tough, and not very inventive. The dessert was frozen middle ( cheesecake) and the chocolate sauce was canned. It was very disappointing as we were visiting new York for the first time and had saved up this as our big dinner out. Expensive too- we had much bbetter meals in ny for much less.

    It had awesome specialty rools and great sushi. Service was attentive and sincere. HOWEVER... Tempura was a disappointment. There are two types of tempura dough. One-to be eaten as tempura or used in nabeyaki. These a light flaky easy to crack and crisp. Then there is the one used for rolls which are less crispy and more doughy. TOP Japanese restaurants should make a different batter depending on the use.

    Love the fact that they have traditional rolls but when you incorporate it with their own signature style of sushi, i.e spicy titanic roll along with spicy crab caviar roll, unlike no other. Hands down my absolute favorite. Definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to take a bit on a the wild side of amazing sushi.

    Meal was so slow. Never saw the waiter. Forgot our dessert and he was very blasé about it, kind said he was sorry, didn't promise to rush it. I was disappointed because I wanted it and would have let myself be convinced. Really, if the food was not so good I would never bother. Go when you have the luxury of being there forever.

    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.
