I'm a huge fan of Japanese food and this place exceeded my expectations. Came here for a company dinner and we all loved it. Food was amazing. Rock Shrimp Tempura is our new addiction. We love this place and will be back.

Nice experience...used Open
Nice experience...used Open Table to find this restaurant. Totally as advertised. Food was delicious, vegetables prepped perfectly as was the cooked fish and shrimp. I was in NY on biz and will definitely return to this restaurant.

I go here for client lunches
I go here for client lunches all the time - it's perfect! Friendly, quick service. And should you want to lounge and stay longer they don't rush you.

Theatre district find.
High quality sushi, nice ambience, very pleasant serving staff and reasonably priced. Great pre-theatre option.

One of the best
Not fancy, but great food! We loved the experience. Got to try: rocky shrimp, toffu ravioli and the rolls! Price is not crazy like you would expect in a NY sushi.

Delicious food, good timing
Delicious food, good timing of dishes and friendly service. We had a very nice evening!

Good food, no rush
We were there on a Saturday night, and the wait staff let us sit as long as we wanted. Suspect this is a popular per-theater spot. Food was good, portions ample, wait staff attentive. Would definitely go again.

Beautiful venue with great food
My husband does not normally like sushi but after our delicious food at this restaurant he loves it! My tuna tartar was delicious. The decor was very sophisticated. We sat in the back by a window that looked out on the city street. Service was a bit slow but the servers were very nice.

Love this restaurant. Highest quality food. Beautiful presentation. Diverse and extensive menu. Portion sizes for every appetite. Venue perfect for any group size or occasion.

I went to Natsumi before seeing a show. The service was prompt and the food was very tasty. A bit on the pricey side, but for a special occasion it is expected. I would return again.
6/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect during the work day
I go to Natsumi from time to time on business lunches. They're service is great, it's not a long lunch and the sushi is fresh and delicious. During my last visit, my iPhone was losing it's charge and the waiter offered me his charger during lunch, which was perfect. I go at least once a month.
It's great during the work day, but I've also gone for dinner, which is good too.
6/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Every single element was perfect! Absolute best sushi we have EVER had!
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Even though not far from where I live in Hell's Kitchen/Theatre district, I had never been. Well that will chance, food is amazing. Service fantastic. Great ambiance. Has an upscale modern feel.
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really good food and service. Rather noisy on a Friday night, but not during the week. Good value

Theater District Find
We will certainly be returning to this Theater District gem. Sushi and rolls were beautifully prepared and very fresh. The lounge area is also a great place to meet for pre/post theater drinks and also offers the restaurants menu in a stylish, not to loud or over crowded, environment.

Delicious all around!
Natsumi was easy to find. The inside was clean and the tables were just far enough apart to not feel closed in. The food was delicious and our party of 3 enjoyed the appetizers (yummy dumpling assortment) and our meals. The house wines were quality, not cheap.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
The portion sizes were appropriate.
The portion sizes were appropriate. The green tea spinach gnocchi was amazing in how the flavors could be so vividly tasted. I also enjoyed the tempura cheese cake a lot.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a great experience
I have been to Natsumi many times with friends, co workers and family on different occassions. The food is always great and the service is impeccable. The space is small, therefore I highly suggest to make a reservation. I have recommended Natsumi to many people and noone is every disappointed. One of my top favorites and possibly the only retaraunt that I make sure to order dessert (tempura cheesecake).

Special Japanese Food
I was very impressed by the quality of the food served at this Japanese restaurant.
I no longer wanted to stop eating
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent as always!
Natsumi's food and location make this restaurant an excellent choice pre-theatre. However, be sure to go early, the service can be quite slow. A meal of sake and sushi did take over an hour and 15 minutes, and the check had to be requested. It was a busy Saturday night, and I suspect it was our waitress since other diners received their food and where on their way faster. A quick chat with the manager did rectify the situation quite quickly. Portions are large and food very fresh and tasty!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic Service and Food
We had dinner before going to see the "Forever Tango" show and dinner was the start for a terrific evening. The food was delicious, everything that we order was made to perfection, the drinks and the service was fantastic. I most definitely going back there.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was not served to all of us at the same time. Incorrect menu selectio was served
.They were able to accommodate three of us, although the reservation was originally .made for two.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious, but Dark
I found Natsumi on the NY Restaurant Week list--had a coworker on a sashimi diet, so this place seemed perfect. It's very cute, but when we arrived the intimate table layout and dim overhead lighting with supplemental twinkle lights made it uncomfortably "romantic" for a work lunch. Would recommend for date night, not day time.
Our food came quickly and was delicious, you could taste how fresh the ingredients were. They were a little stingy with the ginger (sushi garnish, not seasoning) at first, but if you ask for more they will happily compensate, bringing you a whole little bowl of it. Servers were polite, they cleared dishes promptly and didn't pressure us to leave when we finished, even during a busy lunch hour.

Great Japanese Food
Four of us for Restaurant Week. We all had something different for appetizer and main course. No one was disappointed. The service was excellent. It is a bit cramped so get a booth if you can. They are giving out $20 gift cards that are good after the 16th when you spend $50.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Never have I ever experienced such an outstanding quality of service that I have received from here. The staff were always checking up on us. I was a bit thrown off in the beginning because we were told we had to move seats because we were only a party of 3 and they needed to make space for a party of 4 that was coming in, however, they were so willing to make our dining experience the best as it can be by making my mom's drink complimentary. After that, they even offered us some sake on the house. I was really happy with that, even though I did not take any drinks.
While I did not care much for the entrees we were served, I loved our appetizers and our desserts. They were delicious and very unique.
Great place to try out.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Such a wonderful experience! Dined here before Wicked with friends and was very pleased. Everyone was genuinely friendly and accommodating. Food was delicious and location ideal. Would refer everyone I know to dine in this environment.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were 4 people had great meal service was excellent we al got free after dinner drink highly recommend for any occasion
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious, delicious,delicious!!!! Beautiful presentation too.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Lunch Specials...
We were looking for sushi in Times Square - great $13-$15 lunch specials - generous portions for sushi/bento.
Make sure they honor your Open Table reservation though - they told OT we were a no show when we honored our 11:30AM reservation.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Natsumi is now a regular on my girlfriend and my list of restaurants! Food's great, consistently good service and right in midtown, perfect for a pre-show dinner!

Receptionist was very friendly and attentive! Food was delicious.

The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The service here is attentive and knowledgeable. The salmon and tilapia meals were done perfectly and the portions were generous.
We will definitely return and recommend to our friends.

My family and I came to Natsumi
My family and I came to Natsumi as a group of 15. Out of the 15, 6 were children. Ranging from 1 years old to 9 years old. The host and wait staff were very accommodating and friendly. We received great service all night. BTW, food was very good!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sashimi was very fresh tasting, interesting creative sushi menu with creative fillings in the rolls. skirt steak app prepared nicely with nice sesame soy sauce glaze. Nice variety of sakes and drinks by the glass as well as a cocktail menu.

Un giappo di ottimo livello
Abbiamo prenotato all'ultimo minuto (ore 9.30 pm) tramite opentable fidandoci di giudizi di altre persone letti su vari forum. Abbiamo trovato posto. Nel giro di mezz'ora eravamo seduti a tavola a gustarci piatti prelibati. L'ambiente è molto raffinato (consiglio abbigliamento sobrio/elegante... Noi ervamo con felpa Abercrombie per via del freddo di quei giorni e non vi nascondo la sensazione di disagio). Il servizio è puntuale. I piatti sono ottimi, tutti, dagli appetizer ai dolci. Tra l'altro sono abbondanti... È il primo giappo che non mi lascia un senso di incompiuto a fine cena.
Il prezzo è medio alto. Noi abbiamo speso circa 115 dollari prendendo 2 piatti di sushi, 1 di tempura, 2 di zuppa di miso, 1 dolce...tanta roba!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We began our experience with drinks and appetizers at the bar. The cocktail of the day was a Fujitini, a martini with pomegranate juice and sour apple vodka. The seafood spring roll was the best spring roll we have ever tasted. The tuna with tobiko and creamy spicy mayo pizza nuova was like having a crispy open faced maki roll, delicious! When we moved on to the restaurant, wait staff was very attentive. Our waitress was knowledgeable of both the drink and food menus. Our entrée was the Chef's selection box. The box had 1 sushi roll, 3 pieces of sushi, a portion crispy pork with broccoli and a portion of shrimp. The pork was tender, moist and delicious. We ended our meal with green tea, red bean and ginger ice creams.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Service,great menu to choose from. Everything we had was very good. Have to try cheese cake tempura :)
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice Suprise in the Theater Area
Nice change to eat at a Japanese Restaurant before the Theater.
We have done many Italian Restaurants in this area.
The food was delicious and service was excellent. Great wine list also. Very reasonable price.

Best Sushi in New York
I am at Natsumi every chance I get - this time we celebrated a special anniversary - the team + Food + Atmosphere yields an AWESOME experience! Tony is the Best in town and makes sure my experience is perfect every time!
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Pre-Theater Dinner
It's hard to find a good meal in the theater district a d a place not over-run with tourists. Natsumi provides both. We had fresh, well-prepared sushi and a delicious seaweed salad. The service was friendly and quick. Would go back.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinner was Outstanding!
We celebrated my daughter's 21st birthday with dinner at Natsumi, before a show at Caroline's. The entire experience was outstanding! The servers were attentive and personable, and the food was delicious. The Butterfly Green Tea Ravioli with Lobster Mushroom filling and Lobster Bisque was brilliant, as were the King Crab Dumplings and the Shrimp and Scallop Shumai. All of the Sushi was fabulous, fresh, flavorful and beautifully prepared!! I would highly recommend Natsumi to anyone looking for outstanding (and reasonably priced!) sushi in NYC
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Unique, Delicious Sushi with Gold Flakes. I had the Natsumi Roll and the Tuna Tartar.
The Natsumi Roll was delicious with gold flakes. If I had to order it again I would ask for like Pesto Sauce.
Tuna Tartar was sliced tuna instead of chopped of tuna and could have used some more avocado.

Excellent Broadway theatre
Excellent Broadway theatre district spot. Food quite good with lots of choices. Pretty tightly packed on a Friday night but not uncomfortable. Noise level not too high to prevent easy conversation. Wine list strong. Upscale crowd. Intimate by comparison to
most restaurants in the area. Would definitely go back.

Sushi - licous
Another outstanding experience - Probably my 20th visit to this restaurant over the past 3 years - simply the best. Great service and very consistent food - Tony keeps the place humming and ensures everything that happens in this place is top-notch. I also visited the bar this trip and it too provided me with a great environment to visit with my friend - all around this is a winner!
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and Service!
Enjoy the meal a lot and had awesome service. Need more restaurants like this.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food at non-New York prices!
We had a group of 6 that experienced great food and polite service. Maybe one of the best kept secrets in NY!
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good, but expensive
Very good, but pricey. Not a lot of choices when it comes to specialty rolls.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Overall enjoyed it
smaller than i expected, but nice space none the less. Overall, we enjoyed the food and the service was fine. For a place to go before a show, not a bad choice.
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent quality sushi, beautiful environment. Perfect for before theatre dining.
