Friendly sushi chef. Super fresh and tasty. On the pricey side, but you get what you pay for.
Took 1 hr 30 mins to get sushi from the time we sat down. Also Took 20 mins to get the bill when we were finished. Entire dinner broke close to 3 hrs.
Great atmosphere, cool vibes from this place.
Pros: sushi was awesome, rolls were Yuge!
Cons: We were one of the last reservations, but they stuck us next to one other couple, so it felt like we were on a double date. But they made up for it by letting us sit there after they had closed, felt like we had a private room.
Overall, good place for some pretty good sushi
The food was good and the service was amazing
Everything, including food and service, was top notch. The only issue is that the fixed bench seats against the wall are too low and uncomfortable. It appeared that the staff were well aware of the issue. The restaurant could easily fix the problem at a very small cost.
It’s our go-to. Excellent service and always a chic vibe.
An amazing restaurant. Probably the best sushi I have ever had. A true hidden gem. 10/10 would recommend for date night, friends get together, intimate dinner, etc.
The service is outstanding and decor is great! Good & intimate ambience. But the taste of the sushi was pretty ordinary for the prices . Our bill was $348 for 2 ( 1 sake & 2 beers, no appetizer, just omakase) for the taste of sushi that we could have gotten for $180 )
Classic Japanese food well done and presented, plus with some delicious additional tastes. Excellent and friendly service.
Great service and amazing sushi. This was my fifth time dining at Jewel Barko, still want to go back. They have the best omakase in town.
Birthday party!0 star!
Did not live up to Michelin star. Subpar appetizers and only decent sushi. Rice was falling apart.
Excellent service and high quality sushi. Little more expensive but worth it
Excellent food and service!
Really lovely dishes, elegant and soothing space and stellar service - the best service I've had in New York in recent memory!
I've been here before, and this time was not as good. The rice was falling apart of the sushi and the temperature on the raw fish wasn't right. Even with their friendly staff, sadly I didn't enjoy my meal this time.
Beautiful decor, wonderful food! Service exceptional as well. Great experience.
Best Omakase in NY
We had to wait 25 minutes before anyone served us and we saw other tables get food many times over, not even water. Then they bring miso soup an hour in and spilled all over us and the table. Didn’t even wipe the table after just used one of our napkins and didn’t bring us a new napkin. Had to ask twice. The food took an hour and 45 minutes to come. Pretty terrible and it wasn’t very good - very chewy pieces only 3 pieces of tuna in their $95 enhanced sashimi platter. They offered to take money off the bill and took off $10. Terrible
Went to Jewel Bako for my sushi-loving dads 70th bday. The only negative thing is can say is it’s a tight space and we had 2 large men with us. However, the negativity stops there. This place is pretty outstanding. Fish was on another level, fresh and different. Service and specifically our waiter was on point with his recommendations (both food and drink) and super nice and accomodating. Overall my family was super happy with this place. If you are a true sushi lover, this is a spot you must try.
