Reservation was quick, and the food was amazing! The Madison Ave roll was absolute deliciousness. Layer on layer of flavor and textures, the gold flakes are a nice touch. Definitely a resident of flavor town. Great spot with that munch for lunch. Outdoor seating is plentiful.

While our meal was good, I can’t say it was excellent. Unfortunately the restaurant cannot control the outdoor experience in this odd COVID environment but it was very noisy with pedestrians and panhandlers walking in between the tables. It’s also getting chilly in the evenings so outdoor heaters would be a nice addition.

Had a great dinner with my wife for our anniversary. Outdoor seating only in NYC until end of the month. But we made the best of it. Service was great and food was very good. The sushi was awesome. Chilean sea bass was great also.

We only gave three stars for ambiance because we dined there during Covid 19 restrictions so we were outside on the sidewalk. It LOOKED very lovely inside so I imagine under other circumstances we would have rated that higher.

Tables too close to people walking. Homeless come up to you multiple times and staff do nothing. Staff mostly inside while diners outside. Staff just stood around inside rather than try to help. Terrible experience.

The food was terrible! The Uni was not fresh and tasted it had been sitting in the fridge for days.
Ordered the Umami Fried Rice with King Crab and had very few pieces of crab.

Solid pre-theater choice. Super convenient and good food. Pricey but typical for that area. Knowing the service is slow, allow yourself enough time to get in and out.

Recommend if you are looking for a sushi restaurant to dine at prior to a broadway show. If not, go elsewhere. There are lots of sushi options in the city with better quality and at a better price.

We've been here a couple of times but this last time, we felt the service was a little bit slow. We arrived 15 minutes early and the restaurant was able to accommodate us. Sushi/sashimi platter was beautifully displayed and waitstaff explained each type of seafood. Delicious.

Granted it was a pre-theater crowd, but we were seated for our reservation at 5:45 and our order was not take until 6:08, because the waitress commented that “happy hour” was over. She honored the pricing, because of the slowness of service. The food was piloted up on the sushi bar, because the wait staff was seemed to be under staffed. Overall, great food, though.

We used to enjoy this restaurant. We arrived at 5.40 and were seated right away. We ordered and then spent the next hour asking where our food was
We did not get served until 6:48 and we had a 7 PM curtain.
We will not go back nor will any of our friends.

terrible service. Slow, and we had to get up to look for our server to place our order, to get our food, to get our check and to pay. We were nearly late for theater. When there's a group going to the theater, this restaurant needs to know to expedite service to meet the timeframe to get theater-goers to the theater.

Food is great!!!

Pros: Sushi was tasty and came pretty quickly after ordering.
Cons: Pricey for what you get son not a great value.
Also the reservation management needs improvement.
We walked in and they told us it would be a 45min wait - even though I could see empty tables. I then looked on OpenTable and it said a table should be available immediately -so I booked it. When I asked about the table I just booked I was told it would not be available for 20min. We eventually got our table but there was a wait.
