Amazing to be back. Mark is a wonderful leader of the guests and team. Has been for years.
Way too expensive given average quality of sushi.
Food and service were perfect.
Everything delicious just very expensive. The rolls I recommend
A bit deceiving!
We always make sure we get our sushi fix here when in New York--especially convenient to our hotel. We always let the waiters make recommendations and they are always fantastic. Really enjoyed the Heat cocktail too!!
One of the top 5 dining experiences I’ve ever had in nyc- ranking with Bouley, Per Se, Le Bernadin and Daniel
This is a very expensive restaurant that doesn't meet expectations.
Amazing food and service!
They made us wait for half and hour to sit us...
Besides that, exellent place for japanese food...
Fish quality was poorer than expected. Cooked food was overly rich.
Food still excellent ans having Andrew hosting is an asset
Phenomenal food with a hefty price tag. Limited menu during covid
Food was outstanding, but offset by below par service.
It was lovely and felt safe as diners well spaced. Wud have liked to b enjoying a drink while we waited for table upstairs. I think one group at time waiting at bar wud b reccomended.
Perfect as always
An excellent meal with wonderful very attentive service
not worth it! over priced and horrible service all around.
As a single diner ... they wanted me to sit at the sushi bar , but did give mea table ... the food is always spectacular.
I love the foisgras tacos and the watercress beet salad ... tried it this time with the tuna ... not sure what it is ...not regular cooked or raw tuna ... more like a smoked or seasoned tuna cake slivered into the salad ... delicious!
Service is efficient... atmosphere is business-like but comfortable. Very expensive! I will be back.
Mark the maitre D is AMAZING!!!
What an amazing first experience! From the greeting at the door from a welcoming face i knew we found some place special. The server lead us in exact right direction. We knew we wanted to do a few things ala cart. She suggested the venison, the salmon skewers and the crispy salmon roll. She was right on! I wish i got her name, she was fantastic and knowledgeable. We got the crēme brûlée for dessert to top off a fantastic meal. Thank you to a wonderful staff and fantastic food.
Food was good but the portions were incredibly small and prices outrageous. The service was spotty at best and should have been much better considering the prices.
Extremely poorly trained staff. Rushed everything and interrupted conversation rudely multiple times.
Worst maître d’ I’ve ever experienced and so overpriced I’m surprised they can stay in business
Really tasty food and great service and very relaxing atmosphere
Not fresh or flavorful food
Meeting a friend , fabulous time .
Amazing food and service. However, I do find it pricey. Somehow I have never eaten there for lest 500 for two people.
Food was beyond ! Saki exceptional. The hostess accommodated our requests for a corner table . Our server could not be more lovely and knowledgeable about everything .
It my new favorite go to for a fantastic meal of sashimi , great saki and a! Very sophisticated approach to casual elegance

Always a great dining experience. It isn’t cheap but the food is wonderful.
Always good food at KM
Despite my saying am allergic to shellfish, I got food that made my lip swell the next day. The waiter was overbearing and too un-refined for a place like this. The portion and variety are not in line with the price! Never going back
Wonderful. Buckle up for the bill, but excellent food and service
When food is an art, great taste, nice ambience, pretty much expensive.
Delicious food, perfect service, beautiful people, great art. Go!
Sushi was excellent. Very good service . Amazing art but well overpriced
Up until this experience, I could easily say Kappo Masa was one of my favorite restaurants in New York; now I do not think I will ever return. During the meal, I was eating a bowl of mushroom soba and bit into a piece of metal mixed in with the broth. While small, I cannot imagine the damage it could’ve done had I swallowed it (it was shaped like a staple and had multiple sharp edges). The manager came over to apologize, albeit tersely, and then reprimanded his staff. It seemed all was settled. When the bill came, however, I was astounded: our waitress proudly said the soba had been taken off (a given) and nothing else. How can a restaurant only take off the one item? If it were a hair I found, fine, it’s disgusting but not a hazard. This item could’ve actually done damage, and simply taking the inedible soba off is absurd. I hope from now on Kappo Masa will take better care when preparing their food and reimburse their customers properly if an error is made.
Management was a jerk — blamed mistakes on the server (who was great and not at fault). Also told the chef I had a hard shellfish allergy. He tried to had me a hand roll (during omakase) with Uni in it, which I couldn’t eat. Didn’t get a replacement roll. Later that night, had bad allergic reaction, so assume another roll had shellfish in it that I wasn’t aware of. Way too pricey for these kinds of mistakes/experience. Do not recommend AT ALL. No care for the customer.
