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.

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.

Our latest meal at Natsumi did not reach the high levels of previous visits to this restaurant. the food was fair at best and the service was not any better. It was not crowded when we arrived at 5:30 PM so that was not the problem.

The sushi was delicious. Between my husband and 2 sons, we had 9 different types of sushi rolls and they were all delicious. I also order a salad and it was quite large and tasty. Definitely did not leave hungry!!

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.

Always a great business lunch spot because the service is quick and efficient and food is reliable. This time, though, the sushi was a bit too cold when I bit into it.

We ate here before seeing Wicked. It took quite a while to get any service for our drinks though the waiter conintially walked by or stood bear our table. This was the same for the food. For such a small place I was shocked at the poor wait service. The food was good, the yellowtail jalapeno roll had pickled jalapeno, everywhere else I've had this roll it is fresh. This was a little odd to me. My other rolls were great, miss cod and aps we're great. They have real Japanese green tea which was wonderful!
