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.

We had dinner before a show and couldn’t have enjoyed the experience more. The food was delicious, and tried a speciality sake martini that was fabulous! Service was quick and efficient, which is important for a pre-theatre meal.

Overall, decent Sushi at a fair price. We felt very rushed and we are people who like to dine. Great for the pre theater crowd but I felt like I needed to order dessert in order to be allowed to keep the table. I don’t think we’ll be back. Better sushi and better ambiance elsewhere.

Staff attitude, so many people in the theatre district that they dont care, it will be full anyways and they will rush you to do 3 servings per night. Terrible experience.

Nice fairly up-scale sushi restaurant in the Theater District. Nothing too fancy but decent food and atmosphere and a good place to go pre- or post-show.

Natsumi lives up to its claims to be a "Japanese fusion" dining spot. The menu features an inventive blend of traditional Japanese cuisine with smart twists to other traditions. My dining partners raved about their sushi choices; I found my grilled fish to be succulent and very tasty. Lots of sake to order from, along with well-paired wines. The service is attentive and prompt. The restaurant's also located close to Times Square theaters: so we made our show with plenty time to spare. Would definitely dine here again!

We have been to Natsumi before and remembered it as a good option for after the theater. Unfortunately, we were sorry that we selected this restaurant. First the lychee martinis tasted like soda pop, hard to believe there was any vodka in them. Next my chicken and vegetable dumplings were tasteless. I was excited to order the pizza nuovo: salmon and avocado on flatbread. Terrible choice. It tasted like canned salmon smeared on a cracker. Very disappointing. We will not be back. The one redeeming feature was my chicken and shrimp entree. And although less expensive than most New York City restaurants, we still spent $175 for two.

Natsumi is a fabulous Japanese restaurant in the theatre district. I highly recommend Natsumi if you are a sushi lover, or enjoy a bento box. Overall, the restaurant is a 10, except for the service being extremely rushy. Then again, you can always tell the server to slow down.

Food comes quickly from kitchen. It is more of a fusion restaurant than Japanese. Sushi is average if you’re Japanese, but above average otherwise. Worth going to the restaurant
