My husband and I met friends for dinner between Harry Potter shows. What a perfect location for that; directly across the street from the theater and easily accessible for any theater-goers. Service was excellent. Staff was friendly and helpful. Food was fresh and delicious. We tried a number of different items from salad and soup to rolls to sushi. Not crazy expensive, either! Will definitely go again when we're in NYC>

Still the best go-to before or after a Broadway show. Always rock solid.

Waiting 20 minutes to be seated... One hour to get the food. Filet mignon arrived cold and doesn’t worth the price

Haru Sushi was a last minute reservation for us and we were very pleasantly surprised: quality of the sushi and entrees and the attentive, professional service. It was a very cold night and we lucked out: a comfy booth away from the windowed front of the restaurant. There are so many touristy restaurants in The Times Square area and Haru Sushi is definitely a gem!
Recommended dishes: rainbow roll, eel/avocado roll, chicken tonkatsu, Gramercy roll, Brussel sprouts, mochi ice cream and the tempura cheesecake. The house hot sake was sweet and flavorful, great value.

Came here for valentines before a broadway show. Everything was amazing, the food, the speed of service. We were seated in a back room, which was quiet but once we were walking out we realized the main room was really loud! Sushi was really good, definitely try the crab dumplings as well!

Excellent dishes in an excellent atmosphere. Easy walk from Times Square yet I can tell it's a fave of locals. We showed up early for our reservation & they were very accommodating. It's a must on our trips to the city.

Every single time I go to Haru I forget I have been there before and am thoroughly disappointed with the high prices and ridiculously small amount of fish. I am very petite and have a small appetite, and I am always hungry when I leave even when we order a lot. Choose literally any other sushi place.

We went early so it was fairly empty and quiet. The food was spectacular, the service couldn't be better, and the ambiance lovely. It was my birthday with a special place to celebrate.

We had 1 hour to eat before a show so we decided not to have appetizers. We ordered 4 rolls to share that arrived after 15-20 minutes which was fine.
The food was good, decent Sushi, nothing out of the ordinary. Once the restaurant files up around 5:30 the noise level rose drastically and it was hard to have a regular conversation at the table

This was my second visit to Haru. It’s convenient for pre-theatre and the food is good; however, this time the service, although prompt, seemed dismissive and, with the tables so close together, the loud woman sitting next to us made it difficult for my dinner companion and I to hear each other. Might have been a fluke. I’ll go one more time to see if it can redeem itself.

Too crowded. Not enough space between table. People talk too loud. Not interested in other people’s “problems” (both side of our table).

We've dined at Haru Sushi many times and have always been very pleased. Can get a bit crowded but credit that to the fact that they are doing a great job. We usually enjoy their small bites, appetizers, miso soup, sometimes noodles, and the food is consistently delicious. Tuna Tataki is outstanding. Lobster tacos really good but like any taco they crumble and fall apart but still manage to eat every morsel. Highly recommend this convenient restaurant with good service nice ambiance and great tastes.

My wife and I have been to Haru many times and have loved it in the past however this visit was different. The ambiance and environment was uncomfortable and the food was just plain bad. It felt lazy...one of our favorite appetizers was messy and had no taste. Not sure if there is new mgt. or ownership but for $120 we were hoping for a lot better food and experience which wasn't the case during this visit. Hopefully, it was just a bad night but it may be a while until we try it again.

I guessing I was expecting a little bit more from this place. The prices are a bit higher than your normal sushi place, but I figured that was justified by the quality of the food and service. However, I was not overly impressed with the sushi, and will probably not return. Hostess also was not terribly friendly, which is the first/last person you meet at a restaurant, so this was a little surprising as well.

I the experience was typical pre-theater, not relaxed dining so very different expectations. Very perfunctory service
