Our server was primarily serving the bar area. If felt as if we a second thought while sitting in the dining room. Because she was in another area, we often had to wait a significant amount of time to get served, water, the bill and payment.

Great food presentation, fire island roll was fun. On the costly side of things, $150 for two but we had leftovers enough for another meal. Parking and driving was not easy. Making reservations was the way to go for a weekend dinner

I got sushi and it was really good, my friend got hibachi steak and she said it was really good as well. It took us an hour to get our food though, and the waitress was not very attentive. It was pretty loud but I didn't mind. Has a fun atmosphere.

Sushi is amazing! Was able to make a last minute reservation on a Friday night within an hour of the reservation time! The restaurant is fairly loud overall after 9:30pm, but great service, and even better sushi. Highly recommend the Devil roll! And awesome scorpion bowls!

One of the best meals we have ever had. And we have eaten at some of the best restaurants in NYC. The Omakase platter was incredible, the crispy duck was out of this world and the Nami Salmon was one of the best things I have ever eaten. The restaurant was a little loud but the soundtrack they had chosen was classic and pleasant. We did have to wait a little bit past our reservation but it was Valentine’s Day so that is to be expected. We will definitely be back!

We dine out regularly and have always felt safe. This was the first time since March that I have felt high anxiety while in a public space.This restaurant had large groups of people waiting for tables within 6 inches (not feet) of us while we were eating. Many of the patrons waiting for tables were wearing their masks on their chins. When I expressed my discomfort, the host sat the people waiting, but then proceeded to allow other patrons to sit and wait right next to us. Unfortunately we ended up placing our masks back on and taking our food home.
We believe in supporting restaurants and often encourage others to dine out, however I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone who has any concerns about Covid. What was supposed to be a fun night celebrating my daughter turned into a very uncomfortable one.

Always a great experience at Nami. By far the best sushi in the area and their crab rangoons are a staple for us. Great service and good distancing between us and other parties.

A bit more crowded than I would have liked, although we were spaced out well. The food was fantastic, but I think either my food contained an allergen or there was cross-contamination, because despite my requesting gluten and dairy free, I ended up in a lot of stomach pain after. Tasted great going down though, so I can’t fault for flavor or presentation. I will definitely try again, but perhaps at a less busy time or for takeout.
