Great sushi, and a great atmosphere!

Took mom to dinner on her birthday here and had a fantastic experience. Service was upbeat and attentive, and food was delicious and inventive. We ordered the sushi platter and also the maki omakase and the fish was incredibly fresh. Reasonably priced given the quality of the dishes. Servers also took care of my mom on her special day with a delicious birthday dessert. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back again.

The restaurant was very good but too much expensive for the food they serve! Try the sashimi but not the sushi!

Service was fantastic and the food was really great. We ordered the sashimi sampler, mushroom papillotte, chamame and the spicy tuna roll. I loved how the tuna roll was small and perfectly bite size.

I love this restaurant. It's the best quality sushi I've had. If you're not lookin to pay that much, you can order the rolls and an appetizer and will pay appropriately and eat deliciously.

Extremely good sushi
Some of the best sushi I have had. Unfortunately it took really long to prepare so we had probably. A 3 hour meal. The staff was very nice about it though and have us free wine and tastes of new dishes. Overall excellent experience.

Fantastic food but service too fast
We were recommended this restaurant and went to dine with an early booking around 7:30pm. We found the food to be really lovely, would go back anytime. A small but, they couldn't try to get us out any faster: food came extremely fast, and service was almost too attentive, clearing and soliciting for next dish/desert etc too quickly for comfort. Still top marks for the food, ambience and décor.

Sushi that melts in your mouth
So far the best sushi and sashimi I ever had. The place is very romantic.

Elegant dinner experience
This restaurant is a little expensive but the food and service are excellent. The music choices were a little strange but otherwise it was a lovely experience.

We had a wonderful time! The service was warm, gracious, and welcoming, and the food was top-notch! We started with the exotic Japanese mushrooms and the assortment of salmon sashimi and then we sampled most of the a la carte sushi, as well as all the seasonal selections that day. The fish was really fresh, the temperature was just right, and the everything was artfully presented. The uni was possibly the best I have ever eaten in my life so far! Sweet and succulent. Plenty of good sake choices to go with the food. The space was cozy! We stayed for about 3 hours for a leisurely dinner. We will look forward to a return visit!

I brought my wife here for a late birthday dinner surprise.
Everything was amazing, the food, the ambience, the service.
Everybody was so kind.
definitely will be coming back!

While the rolls are absolutely delicious (try the torotaku chutoro with soy mousse), the omakase is the way to go. The eel and barracuda are notably delicious, and the sashimi is presented beautifully. The level of service is beyond outstanding and exceeded any and all expectations.

Best sushi in East Village
We had not been here for a long time and were happy to return. Food and service outstanding. Not cheap, but a wonderful dinner. We will be back.

Excellent sushi & sashimi
We went here as a group of four adults & two teenagers. Service was consistently swift but unobtrusive. Menu is very straightforward - sushi/sashimi by-the-piece or the choice of a few sets.
The sets are (as usual) better value than the individual pieces, but this place is by most measures pretty expensive. I think we spent $600 for six of us on food plus a few beers.
The toro was exceptional.

Food, service and atmosphere
Food, service and atmosphere were impeccable as always, and the prices are very reasonable for the quality, especially for Japanese cuisine.

Great little sushi spot
Jewel Bako is a fantastic little (very small) sushi spot in the east village. It's romantic and the tasting menu was superb.

The food waa impeccable. There is a huge difference between $20 sushi and $40 sushi in terms of its delicacy and sweetness. If you dont like wasabi, let the waiter know because they put a dab of it on each piece of sushi. The service was really good, but maybe a little too attemtive for people who also want to talk to each other. Great experience!

One of the best sushi in the city
Very fresh fish, perfect custard-styled tamago, and wonderful staff. Oddly, it is filled with more amateur couples on their first few dates than those who appreciate really good sushi, judging by the preponderance of maki rolls served and an ambiance that borders on obnoxiously loud at times. The omakase sushi / sashimi is an excellent value. If ordering a la carte, go for the underappreciated species and you will be rewarded with the chef's special touches.
I have been to all the top Japanese restaurants in the city, and this is the one that I have made my regular.
