I am not very thrilled about that place. Definitely not coming back again

You can have much much better meal than brushstroke for lower price. Ramen was below average.

The food was too sweet, one couldn't taste the oysters because of the sweet condiments they came in. I was hoping for a more traditional Japanese menu. This is a fusion restaurant which try to cater to this country sugar addiction. Quite a disappointment.

Excellent service and INTERESTING & nuanced flavors and pairings. We did the kaiseki and all 6 of us (3 couples) loves it!

We arranged to come here for my birthday for the Kaiseki because we enjoyed it so much in the past. I received several calls confirming our reservation on Thursday and Friday of that week. The night we arrived, after being seated, we were told there was no kaiseki. I was really upset by that. Then my cocktail took over 15 minutes to be delivered to our table. The waiter who brought out our orders was very hard to understand so I did not get the full info on the dishes we had. The food was great as usual but it seemed like the death knell was near for the nearly empty restaurant. The TOTO Japanese toilet wasn't even working properly, none of the buttons did what they were supposed to, except the one that closes the toilet cover. Sad, as we really loved it two years ago when we went for our anniversary.

Had a memorable evening at the counter, watching the Chefs preparing the food very precisely w/o any hectic. Food was very good. Still very much recognizable as authentic Japanese, but with a twist.

Brushstroke never fails to surprise us with new dishes and winning flavor combinations. Service is impeccable: attentive, yet without being intrusive. We always keep Brushstroke at the top of our list especially for our out of town guests, but it’s great for date nights too.

Brushstroke is the best restaurant I've ever been to -- and I've been to a lot of the "top" ones. It's #1.

We chose to eat at Brushstroke on our final night in NYC - worth the wait. The service was outstanding - knowledgeable and very friendly (notably the sommelier who is a star). The food was outstanding - even a full vegetarian menu. We will definitely visit again next time we are in the city

New ramen was delicious, especially the sweet corn!

First off, yes it was expensive. Was it worth it, yes. Although not every bite was something I would try again, I absolutely would try the tasting menu again. The staff was impeccable, both the front and back of the house. The food was fresh and expertly prepared, delivered, and explained. It is an experience and as long as you appreciate it for what it is, you will not be disappointed.

My husband and I had dinner at brushstroke on Christmas eve. we had the 9 course, and the 5 course omakase. The 9 courses had a few very tasty dishes. I especially loved the "seasonal kobachi from sea", everything from oysters, sweet shrimp and shrimp liver were amazing. I can still remember the sweet after taste. The "toro uni ikura sushi in masu box" was also excellent. I find the wagyu too fatty, not my favorite. The 5 courses' food were just average, the only memorable dish was the soba, the soup was rich in taste and comforting.

The omakases are quite big in portion, we could barely finish everything. Overall, I would go back and order a la carte.
