Wait staff in a sushi restaurant and doesn’t know much about Japanese food. Not friendly at all.

Best sushi we’ve had in a while! We had Jo sashimi & sushi. Every bite was tender and delicious!

The fish was good, but small pieces cut too thin so pieces were not balanced , and way overpriced. We cut the meal short and went to an izzykaya nearby.

Outstanding Sushi made with choice fresh ingredients of the the highest quality. I would rank Nare in the top echelon of New York sushi emporiums.

Nare Sushi serves incredibly tasty fish, extraordinary drinks, and excellent other Japanese dishes. Unfortunately, they no longer offer lunch specials which changes the dynamic for me. It used to be that I would travel from anywhere in Manhattan to eat lunch here, now I only do so if I'm in the area. Fortuna transit.

It is rare to see actually good food nowadays. It is even more rare to see good food with excellent execution and presentation. And I think that Nare hits those marks easily. The place is small but when we got there it was packed. I mean almost completely. Given that it is located on billionaires row it has to keep the standards high but I don't think it's going to be difficult.

The Omakase is one of the best I've seen around with A5 Wagyu, fish, and seafood imported from Japan. It's a rare sight to have a server explain to you exactly where your food comes from, most places just have it written on the menu if at all. The fish is fresh like I've not tasted in many restaurants. The sake is nicely complementing the food. The atmosphere is intimate and that makes the experience so wonderful.

Definitely worth a visit more so before the business lunch crowds come back.

Omakase is a steal at $75; definitely recommend sitting at the Sushi bar though for a better experience. Table service is nice, but you will get the entire plate of sushi upfront if that is where you sit.

This is still a favorite Japanese restaurant we consider in our neighborhood. While they have curated their menu during current pandemic times, food quality seems consistent. Service is a bit slow so when dining here, one shouldn't be in a rush.

Beautiful presentation and quality of the food. Only drawback is 9:00 closure of the bar and kitchen. Inasmuch as they would like to keep with the tradition of Japan's operating hours seemed odd in New York???

Solid Japanese in an office building atrium. Not overly familiar with the neighborhood, but this struck me as the best sushi option in the area. Food solid if not a bit expensive for the quality.

This place was so good I am reluctant to review it. Giggles. I don’t want it to get too crowded. The food was absolutely amazing and fresh and it’s an open and quiet restaurant. Perfect for meeting a friend for lunch in Midtown.

Good sushi but quite expensive for what it is! A nigiri sushi order is $5 dollars for one piece. Maybe it’s New York and acceptable but back in California that would never fly.

Excellent food as usual. Service is very attentive and unobtrusive. Don't let the location (an unattractive office building lobby) keep you away from one of the best japanese in NY.
