    We felt like we had found a secret place as we passed through the moon gate entry and descended the stairs into the restaurant. The room was cozy and elegant with a classy lounge like ambiance. It was decorated in deep reds and gold and every chair was super comfy. We began with saki martinis with cucumber that were fresh and bracing. Now for the food! We had the restaurant week meal and it was amazing. The appetizers were simple, classic Japanese fare: Miso Soup or salad. The miso soup was some of the best I have had. The main dish was the star of the show: In addition to a choice between steak or sea bass the chef included several items: three kinds of sushi rolls, two types of sashimi and 2 crispy rice and tuna croquettes. Everything was wonderfully presented and tasted as good as it looked. The desert was a warm bread pudding that was out of this world. The waiters were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We never needed to ask for water. We are now hoping for a special occasion so we can come back and order off the regular menu!

    The tuna tart will ruin you for all other food. Nothing can compare. You will eat it, and you will wander the earth in a daze, wondering how you ever called all that other garbage you put in your face "food". The texture, the subtle way the flavors evolve in your mouth... life-changing. The rest is awesome too. The decor is fun, the seating is loungy, the lighting is perfect... but that tuna tart... that tuna tart....

    We dined at Cherry on Saturday night. The service was very good and so were the cocktails! My husband had the fuji apple martini and I had the saketini. Both were delicious! For apps, we had the tuna tart, which was outstanding! and the yellowtail with jalapeno, which was good. For rolls, we had the red snapper and spicy tuna. It was the rolls that I found the fusion between French and Japanese most questionable. The use of well-made creamy sauces, which speaks to the French fusion aspect of the restaurant, masked all taste of the rolls. I could have been eating anything within those rolls and not been able to taste it except that the red snapper roll was quite dry in texture. We also had the cod shumai which is an interesting concept but the taste was lacking. For dessert we had the chocolate mousse. The French aspect to the restaurant shined through successfully with this course and the mousse was enjoyable.

    Cherry offers a great menu of delectable dishes..from its Foie gras gyoza to their Tarte Tatin. The appetizers were an original take on the classics and the sushi was of excellent quality. The music was at the right level to still be able to have a conversation on a Saturday night. The cocktails were quite good. Katherine and all the servers were very hospitable and attentive. Wonderful dinning experience recommended to all.

    This was my second visit. I had been there on a business dinner a year ago and wanted to come back. My fiancée and I had a friend visiting and decided to come. The atmosphere is very cool, though it is not at all what you'd expect for a French-inspired Japanese restaurant. You climb down the stairs to find yourself in what look like and old British colonial lounge, with dark wood and plush red velvet. On my first visit I remember being struck by the unique food preparations, and I was glad to see my memory was correct. they have a lot of tapas-size appetizers and dishes, so we started with the signature Tuna tarts - two thin, crisp round tarts with some sort of buttery truffle spread overlaid with thinly sliced tuna tartar. Yum! We rounded out the appetizers with black cod shumai and then decided to do the sashimi/sushi omakase. The quantity was reasonable for the price, the presentation was beautiful, and the fish quality was outstanding. Surprisingly (for me), one of my favorite pieces was a big-eye tuna that was out-of-this-world tender, with a rich, buttery flavor. I like to save my best for last, and decided to give that honor to the uni, which was a wise choice: from the lightness of it (both in terms of color and flavor), I am pretty sure it was from the Santa Barbara area - definitely not the heavier, east coast type. We topped off dinner with desserts, sampling a full range that included the triple chocolate mousse, the green tea meltdown (spectacular - like a green tea lava cake with a small dollop of red bean ice cream) and the Suntory bread pudding, which was also delightful. I should also mention that the place was a bit noisy - not a surprise it being Saturday night - but much less so than other restaurants in the meatpacking district. We were able to have conversations all evening without having to strain to hear each other. I suspect that the draperies, velvet furniture and carpeting all contributed. In all, this was a delightful dinner!

    We ordered 5 different small plates (appertizers) to share between the two of us. The crunchy salmon roll; tuna tacos; vegetable tempura; kanpaci were all very fresh, delicious and prepared in a unique way. I had a glass of prosecco since they ran out of plum wine, and my friend had a glass of the house sake. The staff is attentive. The tables and velvet seating were comfortable. My only complaint would be the dim lighting. We couldn't even appreciate the old portraits that lined the upper walls. Also, the 2 flights of carpeted stairs down to the restaurant are completely unexpected. In fact, the lights were off on the 2nd set of stairs which they fixed when I informed them about it. Overall, I would recommend this place for the good food and service.

    This was my second time visiting Cherry. Pretty much the polar opposite of last night. On my first experience, the food was cooked perfectly and was delicious. The service, however, was extremely slow and pretentious. This time around, the service was very friendly all around and each course came out very quickly. The food was a different story. Our fish and rice dishes were overcooked and not as tasty as last time. The place was more crowded overall. After our recent experience, I am hesitant to come back here considering the sky high prices. Though, the ambiance is really nice so I would give it another try but it wouldn't be on the top of my list.

    Maybe it was because we were not drinking and spending too much, but all of the servers basically ignored us. It took about 15 minutes after we had clearly finished our food for anyone to come over and remove the plates. The bread pudding dessert was truly delicious though!

    I had been recommended to try Cherry by a few friends. One specifically said it was his favorite restaurant in NYC, however he said it had slow service. He stated if it had better service he'd go there all the time. I agree, the food was absolutely amazing, however we did not get seated till about an hour after our reservation time! Other than that, everything was perfect! Great server, great food, great decor, loved it!

    I've walked past Cherry a number of times, not knowing what kind of restaurant lay behind the hidden, dark doors. As it turns out, a fantastic Japanese/French fusion restaurant with lush decor and fantastic food. Our waiter was attentive, recommending a dish we would have missed (and loved more than what we originally ordered). When my girlfriend requested jalapeño for the tequila she ordered, he returned with a jalapeño/agave mix that was just perfect. The ambiance is great for a date or special occasion, and seems large enough for groups. Because it's hidden away subsurface, down a flight of stairs, your friends will think you're in the know for finding it. A little expensive for the amount of food plated, but this kind of restaurant is more for an experience than value anyhow, so that's not a turnoff. Seating for two was a little tight, next to other patrons (despite a an abundance of available seating). We were lucky in that our neighbors made an appetizer recommendation to us, and we appreciated the input. Great experience, definitely recommended.

    I have been here 4 times now. When you walk down the large flight of stairs into this underground restaurant, couldn't the lighting be a little better? They are a little pricey with a limited menu. The food is delicious, as are the desserts! Make sure you ask questions about the size of the dish like the Omekase (for $48).. was only 6 pieces of sushi and 3 pieces of sashimi... not worth $48 by any stretch of the imagination! There are also so many service people in the dining area it is very difficult to tell who your waitstaff is... and the lighting is minimal.. it is very dark. After dinner was complete we were asked if we wanted dessert, we said we'd think about it. No one came to our table for more the 20 minutes. It took about this same amount of time to get our check and we were one of the first tables to be seated... and this was a Saturday night. I can't image what good service there would be considered. They even charge you for green tea refills... Next time I'll go to my favorite place... Monster Sushi on 23rd Street, the service is always impeccable and friendly, the food is always fresh and delicious, and the portions are plentiful.

    We selected Cherry based on Opentable reviews and we're not disappointed. Expecting a quiet, romantic destinations. We were initially surprised by the noise level in the main dining room. Happily we are escorted to a smaller dining room with tables of couples rather than larger groups. The wait staff were wonderful, cheerful and knowledgeable. The drink selection was interesting ( I had a Bordello, highly recommended). The only part of the meal that I was less than impressed with was the Little Neck Clam tart, the salt level was so high it was almost inedible. The lobster rolls were to die for, my crispy salmon was excellent and my husband had a sushi plate theat looked a beautiful as I tasted. Dessert was a warm banana tart topped with ice cream, yummy! We will keep Cherry on our list of places to go in Chelsea.

    Wonderful place to have a quiet romantic dinner, found it on OpenTable and the reviews are accurate, I only gave service 4 stars as the waiter forgot two items off our order, but other than that, service was perfect. Un obtrusive and responsive. Ultimately we had over ordered and the items we that were forgotten would have been too much anyway, so he did us a favor.

    As soon as you walk down the low-lit staircase down to the restaurant you know you're in for something special. We ended up eating tapas style for our entire meal picking out the following appetizers: black sea bass carpaccio - WOW...fresh, thinly cut slices that burst with citrus flavors foie gras shortrib gyoza - rich and full of flavor; the foie gras was fully present in taste with the cherries adding a nice finishing note tuna tarts - simple yet fresh and the hint of white truffle oil was an awesome touch spicy tuna roll - the roll was inside out, with a good amount of tuna and very flavorful mayo and we had one other beef dish - which was good, but not as memorable as the others as I can't remember the name of the dish! Overall a great spot - with good service (could be a slightly more attentive) and very solid food!
