    Everything was nice in this restaurant,even the clientele was nice,food was very tasty,all precisely cooked to perfection,environment good for business as well as for any occasion. Room is big but cozy,it works for everything. However, I do believe that for the prize,the sushi should be made bigger,i have had sushi in different places,gourment and not gourmet and everywhere is bigger,this was too small,too stingy,should be made bigger,specially paying the prize it costs there.

    This WAS one of our favorites: great location; good food; good ambience. Unfortunately on our last visit, we saw that the tip was included on our check (two diner). When asked, the hotel claims that they do this "selectively" because they get a lot of tourists. So because we were dressed casual, and Asian, we were labeled tourists (despite being NYC residents). Obvious that service staff were also trying to rush our meal e.g. they cleared my husband's plate and wiped down his half of the table while I was still eating. Huge letdown. We will never go back.

    Went in with a group of 5 people, the food came out at different times so half the table was finished when the others didn't even receive their ordered items. Water glasses were often empty, we were ignored by the staff. Automatic 20 percent for a group of 5 people then the waiter asked us to leave more tip for him when we signed the credit card slip. Food is okay, not bad but not as good as blue ribbon next door.

    The menu is great for selecting small plates and sampling. I usually don't order "special drinks" but the Damotini is really good and not fruity. In the evening the lighting is very dark and almost impossible to read even with the light from your cell phone.

    My wife and I stayed on the Upper West Side at the Empire Hotel and this was one of closest sushi restaurants that was within walking distance. We went on a Saturday night and had a reservation at 830 and were seated right away. The sushi was very good and atmosphere was quiet and romantic. Overall, definetly worth trying if you are on the upper west side and are looking for a sushi restaurant.

    I've been to Damo several times for lunch and liked it. This time I went for dinner with 2 friends and we all had a great time. We all thought the sushi was very good and loved their cocktails. Very attentive service! I had so much fun I forgot my handbag and our server ran outside to return it to me. I will definitely keep coming back here.

    Although the decor is attractive and the service decent, the food is just average for the price-- you are paying to have the privilege of dining by columbus circle-- but by walking a few blocks up to the upper west side there are some more interesting options-- its not bad but its not great

    Took a party of 9 - 30 minutes to get my first soda. Had to constantly ask for service. Waiter took half the tables food order then disappeared. I guess they figure they are going to whack you with an included 20% gratuity for a party of nine, so why bother doing their job. Requested food a few times before finaly getting it. If my party was smaller I would have left. Couldn't even get the check wiothout asking 5 - YES 5 - times. Forget this place, the food was no better than any other mainstream sushi joint, and the service was way worse.

    Although the food was great and the staff were polite and attentive the whole experience was just too rushed.After the appetizers were removed there was barely an opportunity to swallow the last mouthful before the entree was presented.Our table was reserved for 8pm and was ready bang on time. We had drinks and two courses, paid the check and were back out on he street by 8.30pm!! Ridiculous !

    My husband and I had an excellent date night at this restauurant. I suggest the seafood yaki udon and the tuna avocado roll. My husband loved the salmon avocado roll and the chicken teriyaki with a delightful salad. Afterwards we watched Hunger Games Catching Fire, which we also suggest you watch. Happy Dining and Happy Hunger Games!

    The ambiance at Sushi Damo is very nice, decor was simple but elegant. The miso soup was excellent. I ordered the spicy crab roll and split the blackened tuna roll with a friend. The rolls were decent, I was not particularly impressed with either. My other friend ordered the Chicken Yaki Udon, which was delicious. We also ordered a bottle of the Sauvignon Blanc wine for the table, which was good. What really ruined the experience for me was what happened at the end of the meal. Our reservation was for 7:30 but we arrived around 7pm. Around 7:45 our waiter asked us if we could finish up as they had another reservation. SO rude! We were still working on the bottle of wine and technically only 15 minutes into our reservation.
