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.

The most delicious and flavorful food ever. Sushi tasted exceptional and fresh. It was such a pleasant surprise. Can’t wait to go again. They accommodated us so quickly.

Menu was interesting and food tasty but there were only two dishes that were really Italian-Japanese fusion.

Overall the experience was excellent. The food was delicious and everything came to the table at the proper time and very quickly. We were seated 15 minutes before our reservation time which was nice. It was a very quiet dining experience where the noise level was not too
high so you could hold a conversation . There were some interesting items on the menu that raised an eyebrow but nothing worth not going back. This is definitely $$ for what it costs to dine here. Overall a definite place to go more than one time.

The dishes were too small and pricy. I understood the restaurant around Times Square price it would be little bit expensive but the service were so poor.
We were ordered couple times for meals because of the dishes were so little, but the waitress and waiter were given us a unhappy faces when we wanted some more dishes that made us so upsets. They have to improve their service and the reasonable food portions for their customers in the future. This place for sure I will not recommended to my friends.

This is a good place. The atmosphere is really nice, and the portions of fish are good. Both the lounge side and the restaurant side are nice. If you sit in the lounge, you'll be low at the tables. If you sit in the restaurant, you'll have to leave in order to use the bathroom, and walk through a hotel into the lounge. The quality could be a little better for what they're charging you. Wine is pretty good too. Biggest complaint is not being seated when I showed for reservation because my partner wasn't there. It was 6 p.m. The place was empty. Just let me sit. I will start drinking, and you will make more money. This little trend needs to go away. Have been to Natsumi a few times, and will probably take a little break.

Had a really good family Christmas meal at Natsumi. Service could be better though - no smiles, not a very friendly waiting staff. Service looka very hurried.

But the food ia really, really good and worth coming back for. I love my Chicken Teriyaki for mains, hubby had Steak Teriyaki and daughter had Chicken Katsu. Katsu was good but dont think the parmesan ia needed for this dish. All our desserts are to die for - we had New York Cheesecake, Chocolate Mousse Cake and Matcha Ice Cream.

Was in NYC for the Holidays and got a recommendation from a friend who lives in the City. I made reservations for dinner following a show at Radio City Music Hall. What a great choice. We originally were seated near the door and the air was cool. Before we even asked about possibly moving the hostess already had a table by the window cleaned and ready for us to move with our drink order already set on the table. My Family loves sushi and we get pretty good sushi in Pittsburgh but this was at a different level. The miso soup was the best I ever had anywhere including Asia. Get the miso soup! The rolls and nigiri and sashimi were so fresh and creatively prepared...a great presentation and blend of flavors. Kudos to the chef! The cost of our meal for four was very reasonable. Do yourself a favor and dine at Natsumi when in NYC.

Booked and received confirmation but when we got there no booking was on their system. The method for dealing with this was to leave us standing for 5 minutes before ushering us to the bar side of Natsumi, throwing three menus at us before disappearing again. As the place was full of drunks, our table ajoined one with the noisiest woman in NY and we had an underage person with us we left. Absolutely appalling service. Avoid at all costs .

Once again, our experience at Natsumi was perfect. While it has been a few months since I was there, I came in with 7 people on thanksgiving eve. The service team led by Tony took great care of us, made excellent recommendations and ensured we had an excellent experience. The WOLF HALL roll is m new favorite, but frankly everything that comes out of the kitchen is delicious. This time we brought our friends - together we've had sushi in over eleven cities around the world. We agreed Natsumi tops them all.
