A sister store of popular wine store The Winery, Jado Sushi will also pay extra attention to the art of wine pairing with sushi. Carefully selected terroir-driven wines, artisan sakes, Asian-infused cocktails and hard-to-find Japanese craft beers are just some of the selection on the menu.

Whether you savor the fresh sushi at the sushi counter, or perch yourself at the full-bar for small plates with exquisite drinks, the experience will be unlike anything you've ever had before.

    One of the best sushi restaurants on Manhattan. The seafood is of the freshest and the nigiri sushi servings are large. Wonderful fresh crab, lobster and Uni - large selection of fish. A terrific range of premium cold sakes. Attentive and friendly service. Amazing western desserts like chocolate souffle.

    My boyfriend and I came here for the first time on a Friday night. When we arrived around 7:45pm, the place was relatively empty and service was decent. 30 minutes later the restaurant began to fill up, and suddenly - we saw our servers about every 45 minutes. It was terrible. The food came out insanely slow. My bf ordered dessert and we had to wait almost an hour for it to arrive. Would not come again.

    In reality, sushi was VERY good (we order the sushi platter for 2) but we had a couple of setbacks... -Space was a little tight having people/servers hitting me every time they walked behind my chair. -Being 8PM they already had run out of gyozas. -Service was just OK. We will probably go back for a second opportunity.

    Beautiful presentation! The edamame came lightly salted with a lime that we didn't use. I ordered the short rib bento box it was filling & left me with a to go treat; it consisted of two tender short ribs, diced chicken and shrimp fried rice, miso soup or "Asian" green salad and a drink. The miso soup had good flavor and was garnished with a plantain but, it had the largest piece of tofu I've ever encountered. For dessert I had a green tea panacotta; it was refreshing, the green tea had a flan like texture with a pear purée and berries on top. My friend had a plum wine which was heavy yet sweet,the scallops and a salmon avocado roll, all good. The ambiance was nice, the restaurant was busy but not crowded plus the servers were attentive.

    A friend introduced us to Jado Sushi 3 months ago,and we just loved the atmosphere, the food, and the service. It was populated with lots of locals and seemingly, lot of people like us who had journeyed up town for a dining adventure and happily found a gem on a broad friendly avenue and good transportation options. Our second visit was even better. Enjoy

    I've been here several times and enjoyed myself each time. The service is very good unless there is new wait staff learning the ropes, but that's normal and to be expected. The Jado Rice is huge and fit for two (at least). The Spicy Ninja is a must try. It was delicious.

    I'm a regular here at Jado Sushi. The host, David, is so friendly and welcoming. Our servers, Mario & Jeffrey, are also very welcoming, attentive, and knowledgeable. I'm not sure who the bartender was for any time we've been, but the drinks (especially the Hibiscus Pom Margarita) are ALWAYS good. If you didn't know, the happy hour starts at 5pm and goes to 7pm... 15% off WOOHOO! fyi- The bathroom mirror is great for selfies lol.

    Besides offering a great sushi and sashimi plates, which are my favorites when dinning at jado. They also have good drinks and sake. My favorite is the passion Mojito. Regarding the food I really enjoy the sashimi platter for $28.00 and the presentation is as good as it fresh taste.

    Harlem restaurants are on the rise, and Jado is leading the charge - its excellent menu, both food and drink, and great vibe make it a wonderful addition to the neighborhood. And while it is pricy, the variety of innovative Japanese dishes (with and without fish) ensure that everyone will have a great meal.

    Reserved on OpenTable and requested a "romantic table in the back" and got the front table next to the windows. The restaurant was incredibly loud as well. I suggest that they put in noise absorbers on the ceiling, and tell OpenTable to withdraw the option of table seating requests.

    I moved to Harlem about 5 years ago and moved up from the West Village. I love it up here and food is really good when it comes to soul food, everything else was somewhat mediocre. There has been a slew of new restaurants open up in the past few years and after walking past Jado for a while, I went in and have been pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. Great atmosphere and great cocktails as well.

    The service was the worst!!! After being finally seated at 8:45pm with an 8pm reservation, we didn't get to order until 9.15. Ridiculous. We ordered appetizers that didn't come for another 30 minutes and it was Sushi. Just bad. Then after nibbling on my appetizers for another 30 minutes, the Entrees still didn't make the table, and this was after asking for them 3 times. No exaggeration. We were so frustrated that we cancelled our entrees, only to be told "they are plating them now". I was left with no choice by to say "Please cancel them and bring me my check". To add insult to injury, the bill came with the entrees still on it and to be told "but they were ready so we charged you" No I didn't pay for them, but ridiculousness!!!

    Here are the facts. The Spare Ribs appetizer was delicious! However, it came with my companions Cod... also delicious. My main course came after we were finished sharing the Cod and ribs. The waitress kindly explained that it was taking extra time. It came 20 minutes after the Ribs and Cod. When I got the Chirashi Sushi, the roe was sharp and bitter but the remainder was decent. I was hoping for better.
