Japan at its bestVery few japanese restaurant at this level in town !5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Japanese I have ever eatenthe food was so special - tastes and aromas I didn't even know existed. It's not just the sushi (that was splendid), every course was was a feast. My favorite was Uni cocktail. all in all it is the place for people who like sea-urchin.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMI can say it's around topI can say it's around top sushi in NYC, specially UNI. But, there are too much time gap b/w the foods. Also, you need to share some dishes with your company.
I have to share one Uni and one lobster dish with my friend and it's really small........ I saw four people share a small plate in my next table. It's LOL......4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSushi with finesse!Absolutely the best place in town for sushi. Finesse is what it is all about. Razor sharp precision.....3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHave been to "Soto" at leastHave been to "Soto" at least 4 times. It is probably my favorite Japanesse restaurant in New York City. The Omakase has always been terrific.
It is truly one of the great sushi experiences at the world !3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMUni heavenWe love uni so when I read about Soto in Zagat I booked a reservation. Specific dishes that stood out were the uni cocktail, the uni tempura, and the karei karaage. Soto respected the delicate nature of uni but also beautifully enhanced and embellished its taste. Worth every penny.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMI ordered omakase, I couldI ordered omakase, I could pay what I wanted, but the waiters were unable to explain what the difference was between f.ex. $135 and $200. I was then recommended to pay $170, which I did - but then ended up with only 4 pieces of sushi at the end. Not exactly what I was told at the start of the meal. I was ready to pay much more than $ 170 and told the waiter so at the beginning of the meal. What I really wanted was a great food experience. The clumsy way this was handled made the experience less valuable. I ended up ordering more sushi so I got what I needed, and paid no more than what I perceived the value to be - but the whole experience was unnecessary clumsy and makes me less eager to recommend the restaurant.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, but sushi chefGreat food, but sushi chef is severely overworked. The restaurant is too big for him to serve. My friend and I both had the nigiri sushi omakase and it took over 90 minutes to get the meal.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
