Natsumi Breaks New Ground with Innovative Modern Japanese Cuisine. Barbara Matsumura founder of Haru Restaurants, has teamed up again with Chef Haru Konagaya to create this strikingly original destination. Two separate experiences in two adjacent sites, an elegant restaurant and a trendy Tokyo-chic bar/lounge. Natsumi specializes in modern Japanese cuisine with a touch of Italian ingredients; offering an array of creative dishes such as, sashimi arugula salad, new style yellowtail carpaccio, and lobster green tea ravioli. The innovative menu relies on unique preparations with dynamic flavors. The wine list is international, with white, red, sparkling wines, and champagne by the glass and bottle. The restaurant is divided into distinct dining areas, a cozy space with intimate booths, a sushi bar where diners can watch the chefs compose, and in the front, the windows open to the street. The whole room is infused with a warm golden glow and earth tones.

Portions were good sized and the price was great. Had a dinner for 2 with appetizers and drinks and the bill was a little over $100. Mixed drinks were a little lacking aka not strong at all but if you’re getting wine or just dining you’ll be fine.

Food was good. Didn’t order cocktails because the bar staff was so rude! Waitress was extremely rude when we asked about the happy hour menu. She told us that if we wanted happy hour, we had to give up our table and go across the way. That’s not what we asked!!! Mandatory tip on a party of 6!? I usually tip more than what they charged, so they lost out on that.

Sushi tasted off. Very strange taste to all 3 rolls. I don’t usually write reviews let alone a negative review but the food quality and taste were so subpar I want to say something so that this will be addressed. Food tasted bad.

I'm a repeat customer & usually give this spot al-around 5 stars. On my most recent visit, something was "off", and I believe they were understaffed. Service was very slow - but courteous - and staff seemed stressed. Most dishes were excellent, as usual, but my usual favorite (Teriyaki chicken) was rubbery and not up to Natsumi's standard.

I chalk this up to an off-night and would definitely give it another try.

The sushi rolls were awesome, tempura a little greasy. The images of the tuna martini make it look bigger than it is, but it was still very good! The ambience was very nice. You need to make a reservation earlier in the day at least. Walk-ins seemed to be redirected to the bar area adjacent to the restaurant.

Great location for pre-theater meal but Sushi could be better. Dessert and appetizers were very good but it is kind od unacceptable for a relatively expensive Japanese restaurant in a great location not to have the best quality sushi.

Food a bit overpriced
Sushi was fair. Deserts, tempura cheese cake and deep fried bananas unique and quite good.
Happy hour only available in the lounge section which is just odd. This alone warrants three stars

We had a wonderful dinner experience at the 28th St. Natsumi so wanted to introduce a friend to the restaurant during restaurant week for lunch only to find out it was for dinner only. Will not return. It was insanely noisy so we couldn’t talk- the tables were so close and the staff just couldn’t get us out of there fast enough -We got the bill as we took our last bite without asking if we wanted dessert. The bar lounge next-door we noticed much too late was beautifully quiet and inviting. All in all very disappointing.

Ambiance- Cozy, they arranged the seating really well. It's compact but you'll still have privacy. The decor is average; not overly fancy but it's not bland either. It's not a great photo scene.

Service-Attentive and very organized staff. They're well aware of the customers and the surroundings.

Food-Definitely have hit or miss foods. The green tea gnocchi was too oily/buttery-those with sensitive stomach should stay away from this. The dumplings were well-seasoned. The sushi, some were fresh, but most tasted average at best. We ordered the filet mignon and the staff forgot to ask us what sauce and we got the shiitake peppercorn sauce option (very salty!). I got the natsumi grill mixed grill but I only received shrimp. It wasn't bad, but I feel cheated.
