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.

My partner and I have come to make Natsumi a restaurant for special occasions and this one was for our anniversary. The food is always delicious and beautifully presented, with spectacular service. While we have dined here before a show, we opted for a later in the evening reservation during the time that most folks would have been already at the theater, so shortly after we arrived, the place emptied out a bit and got quiet before starting to fill back up again. We love this place and will continue dining here in the future.

Natsumi is always a good choice to take friends and out of town guests for pre-theatre dinner. I really like the sesame spinach appetizer. The presentation of the food is always so attractive.
It's a small restaurant and sometimes it can get pretty loud, so try to get a booth if you can.

Hostess was rude and that was a bummer. She was more like a general that someone who is meant to greet you and help you find your table.

Ok, not great. Nice looking place and prices weren’t bad but clearly, judging by the food and the speed of delivery, this is all about pre-theater crowd. Sashimi assortment was standard fare, inexpensive and obviously nothing special from a quality standpoint. Miso was bland. Rainbow roll appeared to be prepared by a novice. The bland fish made it hardly a “rainbow” of color. When your tuna is more pink than red you may be in for a disappointment. As is often the case, you get what you pay for with raw fish.

This was such a great deal for the price we paid. So much we couldn't even finish! The maki roll combo deal was well worth it. My husband and daughter enjoyed the sashimi plate - the cucumber wrapped crab & jalapeno rolls were a nice touch. The restaurant was a bit cramped. But it was literally across the street from our theatre and we we're out in an hour.

We were a table of 3 and were assigned a terrible table where one of the guests was seated in an aisle. I will think twice about going there again. Also the fire Dept was on the scene during dinner and there was little communication from management.

It took a bit of time for someone to notice us waiting, even though we made a reservation and there were very few people in the restaurant. Once seated, the waitresses were attentive. The food came a bit out of order, but all was excellent. 3/4 of the way into our meal, a party of 9 women were seated. Even before drinks were downed, the noise level became excruciating. They need to pay attention to the sound level... perhaps adding some baffling would help. This happens so often in open NY restaurants. Recommend for the food and maybe you should go early.

First, the service was awful. The two servers obviously never talked to each other. One would take away our appetizer plates. One would bring them back. They got our order wrong completely and tried to debate overcharging us.
As for the food, it was mid grade quality at best. Their signature sushi rolls were unpleasant tasting. Everything was overpriced

I won’t be returning.

Dined in before heading to the theatre which was very close. The food was excellent, so many unique and delicious flavors and the presentation was beautiful. We enjoyed the crab dumplings, tuna martini, oshinko (not on the menu), miso soup and the wolf roll. We were celebrating our anniversary and it was a great setting for this occasion. The infused cold saki was a great accompaniment to my meal.
