Haru always provides first class sushi and sashimi at reasonable prices. It's one of our standard dining spots in the theater district

Something about this place is unique for Japanese food, it is the ambience that caters to the American diner rather than traditional Japanese making the overall experience much more conducive. I had been to their Chelsea location, but this place has it all.

Went here for dinner before a show- sushi was fresh and tasty great presentation and service. Loved the sushi fish taco appetizer! Specialty cocktails are a little pricey - extensive sake menu. Would recommend and will return in the future

Haru is one of our favorite go to places. I used to work right there, and it was a perfect place for lunches, meetings, and just a happy hour with co-workers. My husband and I have been going there for years, the sushi always tastes exactly the same. We order the same rolls every time. I just wish the ice cream sandwiches weren't a seasonal item.

Met my roommate at Haru for an after-work dinner on a Friday. It was a bit crowded at first, but cleared relatively quickly (shows were starting). Our server was cheerful and attentive and answered all of our questions about the menu. The cocktail was beautiful and refreshing. All of the food was beautifully plated and absolutely delicious. The fish was fresh and the rice was the perfect texture. I’ll be returning to Haru.

Very friendly staff. Food was great. Salmon cooked just right. Chili shrimp was delicious with just enough spices. Phoenix roll very fresh and tasty. Had perfect table by window. Comfortable temperature inside when freezing outside. Good background music. Very relaxing evening. 1 street away from broadway show we saw. Will definitely return to try more dishes.

We were here before on our last trip to NYC 2 years ago and enjoyed it so much that we came back this time. Really fresh sushi and very creative menu. The sashimi portions were generous. The tuna poke starter was very nice but the Maine lobster roll had no lobster whatsoever in 1 of the 6 pieces (and very little lobster). There was a tiny sliver of cucumber in each piece as well and no mango at all. Plenty of lettuce, though! When I mentioned it to the waitress, she promptly advised the manager who took $6 off of the $22 roll. A nice gesture which I did not expect. Service was friendly and efficient.
This is a very busy place, given its location in the theater district , but we never felt rushed.

I have been to this restaurant three times and I’ve been joyed it every time except the past it had way too many tables that have been added and they overbooked the customers so even if you had a reservation at open table it didn’t matter I’m sorry that their rent must’ve gone up because they’re only just trying to pile the people in and the quality of the sushi Maki wasn’t as good as in the past

The menu is not realized in the execution. I am used to sushi and maki that is always presented appealingly. This was not.; just thrown on an undecorated white plate. Wasabi and Ginger were absent, but provided happily upon request.

This was a great place to go after the theater. It was around the corner from the Shubert Theater, an easy walk. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The food was exceptional. We had the crispy duck, spring rolls, hot and sour soup, miso soup, brussel sprouts and the Chilean sea bass dinner. Everything was cooked to perfection and exceptional. We eat out often and this dinner was gourmet quality.

My wife is Japanese and our son is a sushi chef in training so it was with a bit of trepidation when I grabbed this reservation in NYC on Christmas eve. We needed a place for a quick lunch and this was nearby. I should have known better than to expect a decent restaurant near Times Square.

As soon as we walked in and sat down we noticed the sushi chefs behind the counter pre-cutting the sushi for what would likely be the dinner service. Looking through the Hoshizaki in front of us showed what looked like Kani which was dry and curling up at the edges. We soldiered on and had a few basics like salmon skin temaki and miso soup but overall, it wasn't good.
