Diner Reviews
  • "One of the best in town in term of quality, creativity, freshness but with what they charge they should improve the settings and the decor. Looks very cheap."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Price for omakase not revealed until the end - depends upon type of fish served. So overpriced it seemed like a scam. Cell phone user next to us was not asked to stop talking. Restaurant smelled and was shabby. Very disappointing."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Best sushi I've ever had. While the price tag is large, it was worth every penny. Highly recommend for a special occasion."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Very small, typical, plain sushi place, not an interesting interior. No sushi bar, so you do not see chef making your sushi, is a minus in my openion. When I got there, the smell in the restaurant was horrible, I almost desided to leave because of that. The food was good, but not amazing, and for the price they charge I expect amazingly good! Will not come back and will not recommend."

  • "First time here. We got the $50 lunch chefs special. It was a great selection of nigiri and a roll. Very different pieces of fish with amazing toppings. We would definitely go back."

  • "great food not balance with other aspcets of dining especially for the price - the service was just OK, tables small and close together - not much interior design aptmosphere either... the mid-town location is better - recommendation for midtown, sit at the sushi bar"
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "The ambiance had us wondering if we had picked the right michelin star sushi spot but we are glad that decor did not stop us. The omakase was off the charts with flavor fusion sushi coupled with amazing traditional sashimi as well. Their I nnovative approach to sushi made this experience one to remember. Incredible"

  • "one of the best dinning experiences we have ever had. the food was unforgettable ! we had the omakaze for two . plus an 2 extra peices of unagi , two chefs choice sushi (fluke with quail egg- so crazy good!!!), and two seared spanish makerel with grilled mushrooms. on top of the food being some of the best sushi i have ever had in my life ( other than my month long japan tour and trip to Tsukiji Fish Market (world famous sushi eatery) I CAN EASILY SAY THAT THE WAITRESSES WERE EXTREMELY ATTENTIVE POLITE KNOWLEDGABLE AND JUST ON POINT I WILL NEVER FORGET HOW THEY JUST... KEPT REFILLING MY WATER OVER AND OVER AND OVER VERY VERY VERY GOOD WAITRESS SERVICE WAS PROVIDED I CAN NOT WAIT TO GO BACK! BEST BIRTHDAY DINNER EVER!!!!!!!! "

  • "Wonderful sushi preparation and skillful uniquely original ideas on a plate. The restaurant is small and not very posh. It's definitely expensive but great for a special night out"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The sushi was ok, nothing like what I remember it being at the original Sushi of Gari. The ambiance was a step above a Korean deli. The price was astronomical."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "great omakase meal! Originally booked a table downstairs. The server correctly sensed that we were looking for special evening (wife 40th b-day)and suggested we go upstairs to sushi bar. That saved our night! Thanks"
    Dined on 1/3/2014
  • "Food was great. Space was terrible. Like a bad coffee shop."
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "3 course platters of omekase went too fast, but additions, along with the best sake ever made for a perfect anniversary dinner. It is no surprise that you pay highly for such a repast."
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "I am a big fan of Gari. We often go to the theater district restaurant just to be serves by him directly. Columbus is our favorite location because of the walnut table. The lighting in Tribeca is horrible and is like a bad diner, over lit. The noise is bad because the room is so small. The design elements are bit and miss. This room needs a feminine touch with more ambiance and subtle light. Horrible to say this but the server had halitosis and that is a big downer when eating a $400 meal. Despite the shortcomings, the food is always out of this world. Only order the Omakase or it's a waste of your money."

  • "I found it to be expensive and pretty bare bones. Not thoroughly impressed with my first experience, unfortunately. And i was very excited to go because I had heard such good things."

  • "I mean, really. Everyone wants to know. Not everyone is going to ask. Don't make it weird."

  • "Wonderful, interesting sashimi and sushi. A real addition to the neighborhood"
    Dined on 10/17/2013
  • "What more can I say? Sat at the bar for pur meal. The sushi was very fresh, very tasty, and unique not only in its presentation but also in it's flavor. This is more than just sushi - it's like each piece is a perfect little entree on its own. Highly recommended for a special occasion. I should also mention that the sake selection is very nice. Loved everything."
    Dined on 9/23/2013
  • "We cannot comment on the food When we arrived, there was an overpowering stench. It was so bad we were forced to leave. Also we did not feel welcomed at all by the staff"
    Dined on 9/20/2013
  • "Best sushi experience outside Japan! Hands down. Sit at the sushi bar upstairs."
    Dined on 9/5/2013
  • "Hands down some of the best sushi I've ever eaten, but the setting leaves a little to be desired. Very bright and very quiet--all of the focus is on the food. Just have to know what you're in for. Definitely worth it for the incredible cuisine."
    Dined on 8/24/2013
  • "Being in the sushi bar, the tasting menu was amazing, outstanding! One of the best experiences in NY, absolutely comparable to best Japanese Restaurants in Japan."
    Dined on 8/23/2013
  • "The chef sushi menu was amazing. Refine, delicious, and different."
    Dined on 8/23/2013
  • "I've been to most of the Gari locations and I must say the TriBeCa was the most disappointing. The chef was inconsistent with the omasake timing he was not only responsible for the bar but also all the take outs which took time away from the guests. Also, usually the chef recommends you to dip the sushi in soy or not which I didn't get.. I prefer sitting at the bar for the personal interaction you get with the chefs and I was basically overlooked the whole time. Not typical of other gari locations. The omasake was also not the best one Ive had, all in all I wouldn't go back to this location."
    Dined on 8/1/2013
  • "We had the omakase at the sushi bar on the second floor. This was an exceptional sushi meal by any measure. There was a variety of sushi pieces, in all different flavors. We probably had close to 15 pieces. By far one of the best sushi meals we have ever had. We have not had sushi since that experience because we know nothing else will compare. The only qualification I would give is that after agreeing that we would eat sushi and sashimi, we just got one sashimi piece. Not a big deal, just odd."
    Dined on 7/26/2013
  • "I feel like the staff was an outpost of 46. Dinning room was cramped and air was stale or something. The food was equal,staff not as sharp."
    Dined on 7/15/2013
  • "Years ago I had wounderful sushi at the original Gari on the upper east side and expected the same in TriBeCa. I normally go to Sushi Azabu which I love. It was my daughter's birthday and I thought we would try Gari. The fish we so mediocre- we will never go back. A very dissappointing experience."
    Dined on 7/9/2013
  • "This is one of the finest sushi places in NYC! The food is amazing and it was a great experience just to be there. The staff is very friendly and their service was phenomenal. I will go their again and again and again! Best part about it is that it has VERY reasonable prices and the sushi was FRESH!"
    Dined on 6/22/2013
  • "We enjoyed an early pre-show omakase dinner at Sushi-Gari Tribeca. As always, ingredients were very fresh and seasonal for both Sushi and Sashimi. Specifically, the Sushi are prepared with a lot of creativity, very often they are small dishes, not just a portion of fresh fish on rice. This can be very entertaining and enjoyable. It is - of course - a matter of taste, but we would prefer more traditional preparations of Sushi where the purity of the taste of ultra fresh fish comes out even clearer. Some more explanations by the friendly and attentive staff would be appreciated, the stiff bill would certainly justify such an effort."
    Dined on 6/21/2013
  • "This small space consists of small tables set extremely close together and is almost communal. The space is more for for a grab n go cafeteria and not a fairly expensive Japanese restaurant on a remote comer in TriBeCa. The mostly trendy clientele didn't seem to be bothered by the tight uncomfortable space, but they were whispering over their dinner , not to be heard. There is no background music or noise, so you can hear the chewing and soup sipping of your closure table mates. In addition, even with a reservation they proceeded seat us at the door of the bar concession kitchen, only to bump me more than a few times. With so many excellent Japanese restaurants in Manhattan,I see no reason to eat at this restaurant."

  • "If you like sushi going to any of the Gari locations is a must. I hightly recommend the omakase!!"

  • "Me and my wife had a stomach ache after eating the food at Sushi of Gari. The food tasted good but nowhere close to the price charged"

  • "Eating upstairs at the Sushi bar was like a secret oasis. We had the Omakase and had a chef just for the 2 of us creating a heavenly meal. He kept creating until we said stop. They even had a list of what we enjoyed and didn't like last time we dined at another location. What a treat. Very expensive!"
    Dined on 4/24/2013
  • "we were very disappointed at the service and ambience."
    Dined on 4/5/2013
  • "The waiter was a little bit over zealous but otherwise it was great."
    Dined on 4/4/2013
  • "Had the omakase chef selection. Nice presentation, but not worth the 120 per person. I was in Costa Rica two weeks before and went to Koji in Santa Teresa. Far better; surprisingly so."
    Dined on 4/3/2013
  • "this restaurant is WAYYYYYYY too small and crowded. it is less crowded upstairs but you can only sit at the bar if you order omakase which is like $150pp. better off going to the gari on 42nd because it is WAY roomier. who wants to pay $100+ for sushi if you have no space to enjoy it in??? you could practically smell the breath of everyone around you in this sardine box of a restaurant. foodwise is good though."
