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 only seat compete parties.

We were seated immediately. Had the choice of restaurant week special menu or choose off the main menu. We decided to order off the main menu since we wanted items offered there. I had the chicken and shrimp dumplings and they were delicious! My daughter had the scallion/spicy tuna roll as well as the Natsumi roll. She throughly enjoyed it. I had the shrimp tempura roll. My roll was the best shrimp tempura I’ve ever had! We decided that if we were going to stay in NYC another night we would have definitely returned to this place!

I got the yellowtail and it was not very good, at all. Maybe I caught it on the wrong day, but for someone who appreciated fish this was not well prepared, presentation subpar and it was doused in vinegar. Aside from that, the service was great, good ambiance and the others in my party enjoyed their meal.

Food was excellent. Beautiful restaurant inside and out. Service was mediocre at best. The interior is small, which is great because it’s intimate. However everyone in the dining room was privy to the manager yelling at the staff when it was time for them to go on break or when he had any issue with something they were doing. Made it quite awkward. Aside from that, highly recommend it. Great dinner overall.

The server didn’t take our order or check in on us. The one time they jumped on our table was to collect the money. Friendly service is important.

I think our server went on lunch after taking our appetizer order. It took some time before another waiter finally took our order. The food was good. Also. They start calling you 5 mins after your reservation time. There is no 15 grace.

We stopped by Natsumi for dinner our second night in NYC, the Sushi, and the service, was so good that we had dinner there 2 of our last 3 nights. If you like/love Sushi, this is your place.

Missing Beef Fillet, Duck Breast and Yellow Fin Tuna early on a Friday Evening.
Chicken and Pork Bento Boxes were poor quailty, Sushi was very good, service was very good.

Would not recommend because of missing items, quality of Pork Bento Box.

Pricey for what it was.

The service was absolutely horrible, had to wait for ever to get drinks, and essentially had to threaten to call police for them to give me my credit card back - they were just too busy to process it. Never again.

I have had sushi in many restaurants in the US and around the globe. The taste and presentation are in the top tier of what I had in my life. It was absolutely amazing. I actually moved my flight to a later time so I could go back the next day!

The most crass, confused, uncaring wait staff I have encountered in a long, long time. Pre-theater dining. Almost missed the show start. Brought someone else's table bill right in the middle of our dinner. Totally forgot about an outstanding sushi order. Food was good, not great. Buyer beware

Food was great. Seating is extremely close to adjoining tables. Server was completely disinterested. Waited 10 min after being seated to get any service. They were reasonably busy on a Saturday night. Food did come out relatively quickly and was delicious. Price point is fair.
