    during my most recent visit to haru, the food was good as always. the agedashi tofu appetizer was especially well prepared. the service, however, seriously detracted from the experience. the waiter took our order, and asked about our preferred sequence for dish arrival; 20 minutes later, he returned to tell us that the appetizer we ordered was no longer available. by this point, we were both starving, and lacked the energy to come up with an alternate choice. shortly thereafter, most of the food arrived, in the opposite order that had been agreed upon. our soup was missing - which was supposed to arrive first - and came out after several reminders. overall, the food remains high quality, but the poor service definitely made a mark.

    This restaurant is really nice including the restrooms. We ordered the king crab dumplings and they were good but didn't taste fresh (tasted liked they had been pre-steamed). The sushi roll I ordered (Grammercy Park) was also good, although the description I read on the menu didn't seem to fit how it tasted. Overall, this place is nice because it's located on a side street off of TS so you get a little quiet from the hustle and bustle and the ambience is nice. I would try this place again.

    The sushi, sashimi and special rolls at Haru are fresh, creative and just delicious. Portions sizes are good. Very attentive service, we had plenty of time to make it to our show. The only complaint is the noise level- as with most restaurants these days the background music has a thumping beat and it is hard to have quiet conversation.

    Since we'd never eaten here before, we were pleased to find a place with outstanding and creative appetizers (we shared four different ones) coupled with high quality sushi. We definitely will be back to try other menu items in the future. It is an excellent choice for anyone with theater plans near Times Square.

    Steps away from the bustle of Times Square, Haru is pretty and welcoming. Plenty of great lunch and light lunch options. Also found some of the specials especially good: cod with sesame sauce, scallops with a delicious tofu mixed in. Rolls, hand rolls, all good.

    Recently my husband and I visited Haru Sushi with another couple. We were all happy with all of the menu options and my husband and I were especially happy with the special rolls they had. We loved the dipping sauce that came with the calamari and our friends really enjoyed the scallops they had as an appetizer. Our visit was on a Sunday night and the restaurant wasn't crowded at all. We did notice a few times that it took the server a while to get food that was ready out to the tables, not great being a sushi restaurant.

    They moved a few doors closer to mid-block. Lovely upscale decor (nothing wrong with the old one and it reflected Japanese ambiance better). Food was very good. They've always been reliable. Tried hot entrees this time. Best Sea Bass ice ever had. We took teens. They loved it. It felt special. Service a tad disorganized for a slow night. I would recommend it.

    I have been here twice recently. The greeter was very nice both times but the wait staff is sub-par- on my second visit, the waitress threw food down on the table and ran away before we could get a word out. I wanted more water so had to stand up and run after her, and when there was a problem with my order, same. Luckily we were seated near the back so she was easy to find. The music is too loud during lunch hour. The food remains very good. The bathroom stall I used was completely out of toilet paper and the first time I went last week, the chair was dirty. They are slipping since their move to this new space but the food remains excellent. I hope the rest of the employees can improve to the level that these sushi chefs deserve.

    We love Haru and used to eat there 2-3 times a week when we lived in the city. Now that we no longer live in the city, we make sure it is on our dining list when traveling to the city. It is one of our favorites. Because we went there so often, one of our favorite waitresses already knows our order - love that! Great food, great Happy Hour specials. Recommend!

    Times Square area is always a challenge for a decent meal before or after the theatre. Thought we would try some sushi. Haru Sushi was a good choice. Very nicely decorated, fairly quiet and excellent service. The sushi was good -- not the greatest I have had -- but for the price and location was a decent value. It was fresh and nicely presented. Good drink menu was also helpful after walking around Times Square for a while. The best part of the experience is the quiet ambiance. Tables are far enough apart to be peaceful and the decor is sort of zen.

    My mother and I were looking for a sushi place for dinner after our Broadway Matinee. The moment you walked into the room, it was like you were no longer in the middle of the hustle and bustle of time square, but rather a posh Japanese restaurant with a quiet and tranquil atmosphere. We ordered edamame and steamed veggie dumplings. The dumplings were fresh, with a light dipping sauce and the edamame was a good portion for 2 diners. My mother was pleased to find a vegetarian sushi entrée which appeased to her non-fish eating ways. I got the traditional sushi entrée. We loved the beautiful presentation and the attention to detail. The sushi was fresh and delicious, the portions were perfect, and we both left happy and satisfied.

    I was seated promptly upon arrival.It took a few minutes for a server to come over to me, but after he realized I wasn't being helped, he took it upon himself to be my server. Eduardo was very attentive without being in the way at all. He brought me various tasty sakes and sushi, and even offered me dessert at the end of my meal. The sakes were all top-notch, and the fish was very fresh, tasty and well presented. I would return to this place again on my next trip to New York.
