Mr. Robata on Broadway in New York is a grill and sushi bar that offers contemporary Japanese cuisine that also has a flare of New York style. The restaurant itself has a modern and sleek appearance, but most people come to the eatery for the items on the menu.
Mr. Robata puts a lot of emphasis on the presentation and the appearance of the food offered, and many of the items on the menu look like piece of artwork. In addition to the sushi and other items offered at Mr. Robata, visitors will find a range of tasty drinks available.
Unfortunately this restaurant has gone down hill rapidly. Used to be a favorite but not likely to eat there again after last experience.
We used to enjoy Mr. Robata as a good meal pre-theater. They changed the menu a whe back and we weren't happy. We tried it again after not being there more than a year. The service was poor, they do not have enough help and their menu hasn't improved. We will not be back.
Enjoyed Mr. Robata last month before attending a show. The rolls were creative, fresh and delicious. The salads we ordered prior to dinner were unique and in large portions.
good option near theater district, and happy hour deals are very good
Husband and I went for early dinner before the theater on a Saturday night. From start to finish the service was great! But we will especially go back because of the food! Had the roasted artichoke with chive aioli. It's one of those dishes you moan, "Oh it's so good", as you eat it! We also had the skirt steak with garlic chips, the skewered filet mignon and the chicken wings! OMG all delicious. Yes, you can tell we're carnivores. We chose all our selections from the "Robatayaki Grill" section, but the menu has many salad and sushi, etc. selections. This is now a favorite!!
Good food and nice vines. The only down side was we started to eat during happy hour but did not get informed about that bottles not includes. after we told the servent we got a discount so it was nice anyway
A nice find for sushi and other Japanese food in the Times Square area, before a show. Pleasant atmosphere and service; well-presented and tasty food; and unique sushi rolls.
If you're looking for a place to satisfy hunger, Mr Robata does that well. Didn't love it, didn't hate it.
We were quite disappointed in this restaurant. The ambiance was cold and stark. The wine list was almost nonexistent and when my husband ordered the house Chianti he was told that they were out. The ladies at the table next to us ordered the Sangria that was advertised as the day's special and they were out of that as well. The food was ok, the server very pleasant but I would not recommend this restaurant.
The appetizers and the dessert was really good. The sushi was fresh and tasted really good but was not amazing enough to suit the price. Racked a 120 dollar bill for one appetizer, three rolls and one dessert + tip!
The waitres didn't tell us what we where ordering the triple of the food
We found this restaurant on Broadway not far from Times Square. The sashimi, rolls and entres were all fresh and well prepared. Service was quick and pleasant.
This is not an original japanese restaurant. The food tastes more like ocidental. I tried the sushis, and they were salty and warm. And they cost 5 to 15$ each. I would not recommend it for people who knows what a good japanese food is.
presentation, service, and food are superb..Friendly people in there, the food is artistically presented and the drinks are great.
If you like sushi and you are going to see a show, search no more, Mr, Robata is perfect for you!
We stopped in to have drinks and a bite to eat before the Lady Gaga concert on Friday and were not disappointed. We ate three different types of rolls and were blown away by the tuna taco appetizer that we ended up with a triple order!! The only thing that was disappointing was the soy sauce; it was a regular soy. It was too light for the sushi/sashimi, but still good. Drinks were absolutely amazing and our waiter was attentive, efficient and an abolute pro!
In the theater district and great for a 5 pm dinner. Waiter very helpful with suggesting items. The pork bellies were delicious.
Absolutely fantastic! From the moment we walked in there was a classy yet relaxed atmosphere with a very chic decor. The wait staff was incredibly diligent and kind (& very flexible with our complicated order). We each had a three course meal (perfect place to go before a show). He had the Noodle Salad & I had an order of the spicy french fries. Both were exceptional. The fries were spiced perfectly & something about the way they cooked the chicken in the salad was incredible. For dinner he got the Crispy Chicken Burger and I got 2 sushi rolls. Everything was simply awesome. A unique flavor to everything & a wide ranging menu. Even friends of mine who aren't fans of Japanese food would love the menu & it has a very romantic/modern NYC vibe.
I took my girlfriend here and we both loved it! I am not a fan of sushi (to say the least) but was pleasently surprised at all the cooked options. I had the grilled skirt steak which was outstanding. My girlfriend loves sushi and she claims this was some of the best she's ever had in the city. Prices were decent for midtown. Highly recommend it!
Went to dinner here with a friend a few nights ago . I usually stay away from midtown west however to my surprise this place was very good! Very friendly staff, nice decor and very laid back automosphere.
Menu was extensive and included sushi items as well as grilled items and wagyu sliders.
Sushi was very fresh and the pork belly simply melts in your mouth.
Decent selection of sake and very creative cocktail list. Def will go back when in midtown
