This is in my top 3 favorite
This is in my top 3 favorite restaurants right now, the other 2 being 3 & 4-star restaurants.
The food here is simply SUBLIME. Chef Kazuo's sushi is so well balanced, yet also effortless & amazingly fresh & high quality. I used to go to Seki for years before discovering this place; then felt like an idiot having trekked all the way midtown when this is right in my neighborhood. Seki who? Yazuo is better, has cleaner flavors, & it doesn't feel like he's trying to impress. Plus the sushi bar is roomy & not full of annoying late-to-the-game/'trying to impress my B&T date' types.
Go. Go NOW.

Went with my husband on a Saturday night. The service was very good, attentive but not annoying. Had the house salad and croquettes for appetizers which were so delicious. We got various sushi for main courses and they were just so so. The fish was fresh but it just wasn't anything special.

Not your hipster restaurant
I enjoyed this peaceful Japanese restaurant not far from the Williamsburg bridge.
We recommend the omakase for $50 to get 10 pieces of sushi/sashimi.

Wonderful sushi and service.
Wonderful sushi and service. Looking forward to trying some of the interesting cooked foods from the awesome kitchen. Music a bit loud for a larger table of 7 to hear group conversation.

Fish & chips
I swear, the sauce they serve with the fish & chips is highly addictive.
(I had to request the waiter twice for more ginger and for lime for my friend's drink).

Best sushi is Williamsburg
There's no place like 1 or 8 if you want really high quality sushi in Williamsburg/Greenpoint. It's also a very snazzy restaurant, in a nice way. Of course you have to pay more for this exceedingly strong dining experience.

One of the best sushi restaurants
One of the best sushi restaurants in New York. Simplicity at it's best. With only the freshest fish, each piece is an experience you will definitely appreciate. Order the omakasi, and trust that the chef will make you very happy :)
